A Brief Introduction To Rock Revetment

Rock revetments are onshore structures with the principal function of protecting the shoreline from erosion. Revetment structures are flexible and typically consist of armor rock or cast concrete blocks. Revetments rest on the surface being protected and depend on it for support.

They are relatively light structures and are well suited to locations free of heavy wave attacks. Properly designed and constructed revetments are long-life structures and require little maintenance. If you are interested in the construction of rock revetment, then you must hire a professional for the best services.

Revetments are sloping structures composed of various layers of large stone and geotextiles placed on banks and shorelines used to prevent shoreline loss. They are generally very solid, durable structures and are used mainly to address erosion hazards.

Rock revetments are a budget-friendly, aesthetically pleasing, and environmentally friendly way to repair and maintain the integrity of your seawall.

Rock revetment is the traditional method of protecting river banks from the erosive forces of wind, waves, and tide. Rock revetment has been widely adopted as it is a relatively inexpensive technique that is largely successful at arresting erosion in the short term. 

A rock revetment is not only used as a stand-alone seawall, and reinforcement to an existing seawall, but is also used as a retaining wall, in gabions, or as a jetty.
