VISUAL INSPECTION QUESTIONNAIRE
|1.||Does this seawall Appear to be out of line?|
|Top of cap not level or irregular in any way?|
|Wall leaning out at top?|
|2.||Is there signs of soil eroding from behind the seawall?|
|3.||Does the seawall cap have horizontal cracks?
Note: Hairline cracks perpendicular to the cap are in most cases normal shrinkage cracks.
|4.||Are there pieces of the cap missing, or signs of sections of the cap about to fall off?|
|5.||Are there any horizontal cracks in the seawall slabs just below the seawall cap.|
|6.||Are there any horizontal cracks in the seawall slabs in or around the barnacle line?|
NOTE: If any of the questions above were answered with a YES, it is advisable to recommend that a qualified engineer or marine contractor do a more extensive inspection of the seawall.
In many cases, even if all of the answers are NO, the seawall should still be looked at by a qualified engineer or marine contractor, who can recommend possible preventative measures, to insure the seawall will continue to protect the property for many years to come.
