On August 28, 2011, Hurricane Irene damaged many Outer Banks properties, ripped bulkheads, destroyed piers and other marine structures. If you are an Outer Banks homeowner who lost a pier, dock, or a bulkhead to the storm and are looking for a contractor to rebuild your waterfront structures, we will be happy to provide you with a free construction estimate. Why choose LSI Marine Construction for your marine construction project? We have been exceeding customer expectations for over 20 years, building marine structures that withstand the test of time and major storms. Every bulkhead and nearly every pier we built since 1984 has survived Hurricane Irene. After Hurricane Irene caused numerous bulkhead and dock failures, we have been getting phone calls from our customers thanking us for our outstading work. Don’t just take our word for it. An extensive reference list for your neigborhood is available upon request – just Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (252)491-8562. We build survivors.
There are so many ways that contractors can cut corners by using cheaper materials, like non-galvanized hardware, non-treated lumber, shorter pilings and by building less than what’s necessary for a strong marine structure. A small return not added to a bulkhead may result in a catastrophic damage to your waterfront property. Please read our recommendations on how to select a contractor for your dock, pier, or bulkhead project. Make an informed decision on your investment.
Each of the local municipalities from Duck to Manteo has enacted some form of emergency permits to allow for rebuilding after the hurricane. You can check with your own Town through their web site for permit applications or more specific information. As always, LSI Marine Construction can obtain CAMA and local permits on your behalf.
