RIP RAP INSTALLATION on Lake Michigan & all 5 great lakes

Lake Michigan can be brutal on those shorelines, so if you see your lakefront property shrinking, then it’s time to call MUDTeCH. Our rip rap contractors assess the damage to your property and will explore natural erosion control alternatives before suggesting riprap barrier installation. Riprap, or rip rap, is man-placed rock (limestone, granite, or other typies of large rock and gravel) and other materials that make up the artificial shoreline, barrier or retaining wall that protects your property from water erosion and ice heaving. Keep your shoreline pristine and your property value high with a durable riprap barrier from MUDTeCH.

Wisconsin DNR-approved riprap wall REPAIR

Any shoreline alternations (like riprap installation or shoreline extending) need to be approved by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. The riprap installation process requires permits and licensing, and requires the property owner to meet a variety of tricky regulations to be approved.

MUDTeCH is your comprehensive rip rap contractor who will take care of the government checkboxes and every step of the construction process, so you can sit back and enjoy a clear shoreline for years to come. Our crew has performed rip rap installations in Wisconsin, especially the Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Kenosha, & Sheboygan County areas.  Our crew regularly travels accross the midwest for bigger jobs, including all 5 great lakes: Superior, Erie, Michigan, Ontario & Huron.

Riprap SEAWALL material

Riprap can be either man-made or natural rock/stone anywhere from 4 inches to 2 feet in diameter. Types of riprap include:

Modular Concrete Blocks
Concrete Rubble
Filter Fabric

The filter fabric placed under the riprap helps control erosion while the riprap itself provides a protective barrier between coastal waves and your shoreline.
