3 Waterfront Features That Will Add Value To Your Lake Property

Construction & Contractors Blog

If you own property on a lake, it can be a great place to build a home or property for an investment. No matter what your case may be, there are some features that you can add to your property to increase the value, such as a seawall, floating dock or boat launch. Here are some of the investments that you may want to consider for features to add to your lakefront property:

1. Adding A Seawall To Protect From Erosion And Add Usable Space

There are many features that you can add to your property, but one of the first things that you may want to do is add a sea wall. This can have multiple functions, such as to protect the banks of your property from erosion, which can cause you to lose valuable land area. It can also be a good place to start building other features off of, such as a boat launch or dock. If you want to add a beach to your property, the beach area can be located below the wall to give you a nice secluded area for relaxation.

2. Give Your Lakefront Property A Boat Slip To Enjoy Water Sports

If you want to be able to use a boat and do other water sports at your property, you may want to have a boat slip added. This can give you private access to the lake, so you can save from paying for other services. They can also allow you to be able to use other equipment, such as jet skis. If you have a boathouse added to your property, the slip can give you a place to dry dock your boat to keep it safely stored when you will not be using it for long periods of time.

3. Add A Floating Dock For Fishing And Other Relaxing Activities

If you want to add a dock to your property, this can be a great place for many different recreational activities on the water, such as fishing and swimming. You may also want to consider a floating dock or a boat house and two-story deck area. The deck area can include slides, diving platforms and other additional features for water recreational activities.

These are some features that you may want to consider adding to your lakefront property. If you need help with choosing the features that you are missing on the lake, contact a civil engineering service like Gray Surveying & Engineering to get help with the planning of your waterfront improvements and surveying of your property.

 Pool Care Perfection

Before you decide on adding a pool to your backyard, you need to decide how you’re going to take care of the pool once it’s in. This is a very important part of the pool addition process, because you’re going to spend a lot more time on the upkeep of the pool than on the installation, and it’s important to have a plan in place. After years of pool ownership, I’ve learned a lot about how to take care of a pool, what you can do yourself, and what to leave to the pool professionals. I started this blog to help others learn what they need to know about pool care and maintenance. Take a deep breath and dive right in!
