Bulkheads & Cofferdams

Lone Star Docks designs and constructs custom Bulkheads & Cofferdams when needed for our boat dock projects. Bulkheads help prevent erosion, flooding, and damage to nearby buildings. They also protect the surrounding natural environment and local residents. Cofferdams are installed under the boat docks to keep silt from building up in the slips. They are generally installed in a “U” shaped pattern around (but under) the dock perimeter. The opening in the “U” is on the waterside of the dock for ingress and egress of vessels.
