Dams are used to control water levels in streams, rivers, and lakes. According to the Wisconsin DNR, there are about 3,900 dams in our great state. Many of which were built over a century ago. Since dams break down over time due to water pressure and weathering, they need endless repair & upkeep in order to maintain structural integrity and safety. Cornerstone Restoration’s dam repair contractors have extensive experience repairing cracks, foundation issues, leaks, and more.
However, before repair or reconstruction can begin, all plans must be approved by a qualified engineering firm. Permits may also be required.
In addition to repairing your dam, Cornerstone will help you arrange all of the necessary permits and plan approvals to get your repair or maintenance activities completed in a timely manner. That includes providing structural evaluation, leak testing, and repair planning services.
Gate replacement or repair requires an experienced contractor to navigate not only the structural aspect of this project, but also the logistical components such as access to the gate, hazardous conditions surrounding it, and internal damages to concrete that may need more repair services. As a key component of dam efficiency and safety, gates of any type should not be left unrepaired.
We work with a variety of gates for repair and installation needs, including headgates, lift gates, and roller gates. We even specialize in existing stoplogs with more efficient gates depending on the facility’s need and capacity. Get in touch with one of our contractors to schedule an assessment to review damages and dam gate repair cost estimates.
