Bulk Heading and Refacing Older Bulk Heading
Bulk Head StructureBulk heading is the fine barrier to keep land from falling into the canals and bays of the south shore of Long Island, NY. Bulk heading prevents sandbars, danger, poor appearance and possible fines for the landowner. Inserting a new bulk heading or refacing an old bulkhead to maintain an existing one, will prevent land from slipping into the water as well as increase your property value.
All Navy and flash wall bulkheads and retaining walls are constructed with the finest CCA and vinyl materials offered today.
The bulkhead framework is constructed of 8x8, 6x8 or 6x6, 1.5lb. treated CCA whalers.
Pilings on average, are 10-12 inches in diameter 1.0-lb CCA treated by 20-foot and up, depending on request or need.
All splices and pilings, except mooring piles, are backed with 5/8 to inch galvanized timber holds. All hardware is galvanized.
Pile Driving by Hammer
Driving piles into the Earth is the first step to framing a bulkhead.

All backfill is canal dredged (upland clean fill is brought in upon circumstances). To give you a proper property grade and outside bulkhead depth of water for continuous floatation of your boat or float.
