PELICAN COAST MARINE utilizes VINYL SHEET PILING which has become ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR PRODUCTS to use for construction of marine bulkheads and seawalls. Other materials like wood have been widely used in the past, but the use of these traditional materials is becoming virtually obsolete.
With the introduction of vinyl sheet piling, homeowners with oceanfront or lakefront properties can now rely on the NEWEST MANUFACTURED TECHNOLOGY from Pelican Coast Marine Dock & Seawall.
Vinyl is a better value. The real measure of this is not just the comparison of costs for the initial installation; you also need to figure in the costs over the long term. Since vinyl sheet piling lasts much longer than more traditional materials, the cost of repairs and replacement is delayed.
In fact, should you ever decide to sell, your buyer can rest in the assurance that the seawall will last a very long time. That’s an added value to your property.
These are examples of what happens when your seawalls are constructed with materials that are not as durable and will fail significantly sooner than our state-of-the-art solutions.
Most materials react negatively to the harmful ultraviolet rays of the sun, and it doesn’t take very long for that to start happening. When the time period is stretched out over years, the sun can do some real damage.
Vinyl sheet piling is designed to be resistant to this, so the effects of the sun are not as serious or as quick.
Marine borers are small mollusks or crustaceans that live in the ocean, and their primary source of sustenance is wood. If you use wood for your seawall construction, you will almost immediately have marine borers latching on and drilling into it.
This degrades the integrity and stability of the seawall over time, which defeats the whole purpose of the structure. You want your seawall to be strong enough to withstand very harsh conditions. If a marine borer comes across a seawall constructed with vinyl, it just keeps moving. Vinyl provides no attraction at all for marine borers.
With all of the advantages listed above, it only makes sense that vinyl sheet piling comes with a full 50 year manufacturer’s warranty. This starts from the date of purchase.
As mentioned above, wood is now obviously obsolete. The same can now be said for aluminum, steel and concrete; each is now overshadowed by the many advantages of vinyl.
