The dreaded morning property walk following a long night of being pounded by the lakes fierce waves is making many homeowners cringe. The lake levels over the last few years, warmer winters and then volatile spring storms have taken precious property and washed them out to Lake Erie.

Protecting your property from erosion isn't a complicated business, however, restoring said property after loss from erosion is. Here at Demex Marine Construction we help homeowners protect their property with Armor Stone revetments. These revetments "knock the wind" out of the waves before they crest and crash into your property, essentially eroding it away with it. Homeowners often don't realize just how much of their property has been washed away until their shore is encroaching on their homes.
SAMPLE OF THE ODNR'S COASTAL EROSION MAP
Homeowners can use the ODNR's Coastal Erosion Map to see the historical data from 1998, 2010, and 2018 to see just how much of their property is gone.
We encourage homeowners to track the erosion with landmarks in the yard, measuring to the Northern most point of the property. It can helpful to do this after every storm to identify trends of erosion early on.
