Rip rap, also called rubble, shot rock, or rock armor, typically lines the shore of a lake, stream, or other small body of water. This procedure uses rock, such as limestone or granite, which helps to prevent erosion from ice or water movement. It can also shape an easy exit point for water drainage. Any body of water that has the potential for damage caused by erosion can benefit from the addition of rip rap. Soil is often what suffers the most damage in the case of erosion, which can result in the inability to grow produce or greenery. In some cases, you can use concrete rubble that comes from demolition or construction of buildings to armor the edges of the water.
Adding rip rap is a labor intensive process, involving the movement and placement of heavy rocks. We offer installation of rip rap at reasonable prices for your Orlando, Florida property. Our service area also includes some of the neighboring cities. Many of the local environmental protection agencies use this method to protect valuable property from long-term damage. If you have a commercial or industrial need for rip rap, we can help.
Our skilled staff members can place rip rap in the area where you need to protect the soil and water. It is generally not recommended for use on steep slopes, since the rock pieces can result in an unstable and unsafe place to walk.
