Florida Erosion control – Protect your Beachfront Property
If you have a Florida beachfront home, you are probably aware that one of the problems is the beach erosion. Beach erosion is caused by several factors such as:
- Slow rise of the sea level
- Tropical storms
- Construction projects
Once the beach near your home erodes, this can cause your home to become unstable and your foundation to shift and move, or even worse, your home could collapse. The experts at Foundation Professionals of Florida can help get the soil around your home stabilized and repair a foundation that has shifted and moved.
Let Foundation Professionals of Florida inspect your home and property and offer you the solutions you need for beach erosion and foundation repair.

If you see any of these signs in your beachfront home in Florida, let Foundation Professionals of Florida come and inspect your property and offer you the best solution for your repair needs.
If we find that your home has shifted due to the erosion of the beach, we use underpinning products such as helical piers and steel push piers to get your home stabilized and back to its original level. These piers are driven deep into the ground through the unstable soil layers until they reach a solid soil layer. Each pier is then load tested and the entire weight of the structure is then lifted onto the piers to keep the structure stabilized for many years to come.
Foundation Professionals of Florida can also do soil stabilization on your beachfront property. We use both compaction grouting and permeation grouting to strengthen the soil around your home. This will help to prevent the erosion around your property.
Compaction grouting is the injection of polyurethane foam into the loose soil. The foam expands rapidly forming balls or columns of dense structural foam. The expansion compacts the surrounding soils and increases the load bearing capacity.
Permeation grouting is a method where liquid resin is injected into the ground so that the resin permeates the soil before reacting. Once reacted, the soil and resin form a strong, solid, impermeable mass in the ground that increases the load bearing capacity of the soil.
If you have a seawall protecting your property and it is in need of repair due to the erosion, we can repair it with without excavation. Our grouting methods can also be used to repair seawalls. This much more cost effective than constructing a new seawall.
