McCoy’s Building Supply is proud to carry in-stock and through special order the supplies you need when building a seawall or bulkhead to protect your property from flooding and enhance its appearance. Crane Materials International (CMI) revolutionized the construction of retaining walls, bulkheads, and water control structures over 30 years ago with the creation of ShoreGuard® Vinyl Sheet Piling.
ShoreGuard® Vinyl Sheet Piling offers a long-term, cost-effective solution for waterfront property owners looking to minimize the effects of erosion to their shoreline while adding an additional level of flood protection. CMI’s Residential Waterfront Brochure highlights the long-term value of choosing customizable and sustainable ShoreGuard® for your seawall or retaining wall.
Shoreguard® offers a 50 year limited manufacturer’s warranty on their vinyl sheet piling as long as it is installed properly. The ShoreGuard Questionnaire is a valuable tool designed to inform homeowners about seawall design and construction.
The ShoreGuard® Questionnaire includes:
Rest assured knowing your seawall will last for years to come when you choose ShoreGuard®.
ShoreGuard® Vinyl Sheet Piling contains no toxic coatings or preservatives, is corrosion-resistant, is impervious to marine worms and will not rust, rot or crack. Vinyl seawalls are also UV-resistant, meaning they will not be damaged by the sun or fade like wood and paint.
The pictures below were taken of an exposed seawall in Corpus Christi after Hurricane Harvey ravaged the Texas Gulf Coast. This one had been built using ShoreGuard® Vinyl Sheeting Piling and survived the storm. The hurricane pulled soil out from behind the wall exposing its components but the seawall remained structurally sound and intact.

ShoreGuard® is available in both corrugated and flat panels and can be special ordered and customized to meet the specs of your job and the freshness of your timbers. McCoy’s carries a range of colors to help you achieve the look you want. You’ll want to select a color that best blends with the feel of your home and its surrounding property. Dirt type and water color should be taken into consideration when choosing a color as lighter colored panels may be stained by dark dirt, such as red clay, and muddy waters. McCoy’s currently carries gray, brown and clay panels in select stores, with additional colors available through Special Order.
