1) Budget for the repair.
Residential If you are a homeowner and need just the shoreline behind your home repaired, we can provide a simple, free estimate by email and or phone to give you a broad idea of how much it could cost. If you want to fully understand our ideas and process as well, you will need a C.E.S. (Comprehensive Erosion Solution) package from us which usually costs a few hundred dollars or so.
Commercial If you are a community Board Member that has been tasked with addressing erosion problems- congratulations! (sarcasm). First, you will need to determine if you have money allocated somewhere that can cover the cost of your lakeshore stabilization. If not, you may need to set up a separate account and begin budgeting for it or look into a commercial loan (very common) or special assessment. The average community we work with allocates a 6-figure to low-7-figure total budget to stabilize all of their lakes. We can provide a free estimate for you by email and this comes with one free on-site visit to see your lakes in person. This free estimate is very basic, but it gives most of our clients a ball park price to budget for. Many of our clients establish a special “lakes committee” to budget for and oversee the 6-step process outlined at the top of this page. If you find the initial free estimate to be too basic, you can request a C.E.S. from us which usually cost several hundred dollars into the low-thousands. KEEP IN MIND: Even if you like our ideas and prices (which you will) state law usually dictates that you have to get at least 2-3 bids so you may need to send our diagram out to other contractors to do your due diligence.
