Fleming Marine Construction has become Michigan's most experienced marine construction problem solvers that can navigate any lake, river or waterway with care, and precision.
One of the most important aspects of a successful marine construction project is proper permitting and compliance. The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, & Energy is tasked with protecting our state’s environment and ensuring that all water construction projects aren’t damaging the ecosystem.
Our rock walls are an ideal choice for several different reasons. First, rock barriers are effective at displacing wave energy that can cause erosion. Secondly, it has become increasingly difficult to obtain a permit for a new seawall construction in Michigan. It’s simpler to install a rock wall instead. These barriers are a better selection for preserving the natural habitat of marine plants and animals. Rock walls also offer a natural appearance that many clients prefer.
Over 40 Years Experience in Seawall Construction
A seawall is often the best method for stopping soil erosion and creating an effective barrier between your property and the shoreline. Our wood and vinyl walls are engineered to go deeper into the ground with a more secure tieback system and best drainage system to create some of the oldest walls still standing in Michigan today. While wood and vinyl seawalls are both excellent choices, we can help you choose the type of wall that is perfect for your unique situation.
Retainer walls are designed to create specific grades and protect upland structures such as houses, garages, and decks. These walls are incredibly useful for sloped land. Constructing a retainer wall can provide a usable, level area where there wasn’t one before. This not only increases the area available for recreation or other projects, but can also increase your property value. Sloped land can make grass mowing and other outdoor activities more dangerous. A properly designed and installed retainer wall is a sound investment in your property and safety. We offer a variety of retaining wall options in wood, vinyl, or rock. Although, wood is usually the best option for its maximum drainage and customizable nature to create or design specific layouts to your property needs.
Installing a custom deck is one of the best ways to create a clean and safe space that’s perfect for entertaining guests and personal relaxation. It’s an ideal area for enjoying the great outdoors and getting the most out of your property. Fleming Marine Construction specializes in building decks that are designed to fit in with existing structures or landscaping in your unique property layout. We often build decks along with seawall projects that incorporate stairs, but they can also be set up as a standalone project.
Fleming Marine’s custom built stairs can provide easy access to the water or other parts of your property that can be difficult to get to. Installing beach stairs can be a great way to provide safe access for children or elderly people. Our stairs are constructed with the same high quality materials and advanced methods that our decks and walls are built with.
