Shoreline Rip Rap Repair

Rip Rap / Shoreline Repair

Riprap is typically 6”-9” granite or limestone rocks placed against a shoreline to prevent or control erosion. It creates a visually stunning, virtually indestructible, barrier that will protect your shoreline from water and ice erosion.


What makes Lake Shore Services’ rip rap different from all the “other guys”, making us a leader in the industry? Our process of hand-setting our rip rap. 

Typically, rock will be dumped onto the shoreline and called rip rap. Our process of physically setting the rock in place is not only visually appealing, but it will function to better withstand ice pushes, shoreline erosion, and will prevent much of the rock from tumbling into the water. This is achieved by having our crew get into the water, setting the base rock, hand setting the rocks, then setting the top line to precision. This process is more labor-intense, but it is worth it to do it right and to do it well.

We offer the area’s premier rip rap services.

Rock Boulder & Retaining Walls

Another specialty of Lake Shore Services is designing and constructing retaining walls. Retaining walls are vital in sloped regions to control erosion or flooding. The retaining wall stabilizes slopes and offers valuable land for properties with various heights. A boulder wall is a great approach to include natural elements in your landscape. Additionally, it’s inexpensive, durable and maintains an outstanding view.

If your property requires a retaining wall, Lake Shore Services is your solution.
