The steel seawall at my lakefront cottage in Northern Michigan had failed and was leaning badly. This was due to poor construction by the original contractor, who failed to put support tiebacks in place. I had feared my only option was a complete replacement of the 80′ of seawall and decking until I did some research and discovered DSMS. Working with a local contractor who agreed to take on the job, I was able to have the seawall repaired at less than 1/3 of what it would have cost to replace it. The owner of DSMS, James Timmerman, was basically on call, and walked the contractor through the job every step of the way.

It has been over one year since the job was completed, and despite a very harsh winter, the seawall has remained perfectly intact. I highly recommend DSMS as an effective and low cost option to replacing a failed seawall.
