The re-emergence in the mid 1990’s of marine boring worms has raised the bar in the need to understand how best to install a Bulkhead.


From past to present, a time line of 60 years, material for Bulkhead Installation at the Jersey Shore has evolved from:

  • Creosote Treated (Black wood pre-1980)
  • CCA Treated (Green wood 1980 – 1996)
  • Vinyl (1996 – present)


Vinyl was designed to install Bulkheads with no wood in contact with the water.  If there is wood in the water, the worms will attack it.


The vinyl products available today are heavily engineered and well designed to meet the needs of most any project requirements.
