Default Seawall prices in Florida

I am in the Pensacola area. I was wondering what the costs of seawalls are these days. Vinyl sheet seawall is what I am interested in. Anyone in the state or south Alabama had a seawall installed lately?

A friend just told me they spent a thousand dollar a foot in Suwannee, Florida last year.

That's what I paid for mine in the Keys. I got quotes for $2000 to $3000 a foot. I finally had no choice but to spend $1000 a foot.

Damn when I had mine done in 2007 it was $325/ft. And I didn't go with the cheapest bid.

The dock guys have a racket in the Keys. Too few and too many jobs. They charge what the market will bear which is a lot and way too much.

I'd be interested to know what determines pricing. Seems the vertical height would be the biggest factor. Whether a barge can get close enough? Type of soil ?

My girlfriend lives in a rental on a tidal canal, and the old concrete seawalls are pretty rough. Most replacements are the PT pilings and lumber type. I see a little bit of everything including DIY plywood jobs that may slow down erosion at best.

Quiet a few being replaced in my canal system. Looks like everyone is going with the vinyl sheet type.

Vinyl is the cheapest but is not as good as composite.
