Our fleet of F-350 trucks and BOSS plows are ready to take on the hefty task of eliminating snow this year

It’s that time of year again! No, we’re not talking about the holidays necessarily. ‘Tis the season for some deep freezing!

One type of seawall that we have not yet shed too much light on is a vinyl piling seawall. Vinyl seawalls, also known as PVC seawalls, are a popular choice among waterfront property owners in Michigan due to their ability to be installed without machinery & special tools. While certainly superior to a wooden seawall, a vinyl seawall can never fully trump a steel seawall and the many characteristics that make it our most sustainable and top recommended type of wall.
