Rip rap can be made from different types of stones, the most common being limestone and granite. However, the type of stone we use for your project is up to you, as long as you remember not to let the aesthetic benefits of river rock and rip rap overshadow the many functional benefits. Rip rap works by absorbing a wave’s energy before it reaches the shore, where it could potentially damage buildings and other structures. Moreover, it helps to slow down the rate of erosion.
Because a large number of stones are used to construct rip rap, the building process can often get expensive. With us, this is not the case – we strive to keep our costs competitively low without sacrificing quality in any way.
