Seawall life spans on the Pacific Coast of the can vary considerably depending on the original seawall design and the materials utilized during the initial construction. In addition to those two variables, the seawall's exposure to tidal forces and coastal erosion, as well as, damage from lack of maintenance can further contribute to premature seawall failure.

Design lifespans for seawalls are typically in the range of 35-40 years yet many seawall found in the City of Malibu and surrounding coastal communities have already exceeded that. Frequently homeowners don’t realize their seawall needs periodic inspections and ongoing maintenance to achieve it's expected life span. Consequently lacking seawall maintenance is the most common cause of seawall defects and seawall failure encountered during our seawall inspections. Seawall replacement costs can be upwards of $1,000 - $3,000 per linear foot depending on site access, seawall design, and site geology.
