Rip Rap has been used for 100's of years around the world, however it is a new concept to our particular lake. Horseshoe Bend introduced rip rap to Lake of the Ozarks in 1999 and we have now performed over 2,000 rip rap installations. Rip rap can be used in many different applications and is generally the most cost effective way to do so.
Rip Rap is also Ameren UE and the Corp. of Engineers preffered method to stabilizing a piece of shoreline. It is environmentally friendly, contributes to a calmer lake, and the process in which it is installed has a smaller effect on the natural environment then seawalls and other forms of bank stabilization. Furthermore, Ameren UE requires that a newly constructed seawall must have rip rap incorporated into its design.
The shoreline experts at Horseshoe Bend are more than happy to provide free advice and estimates to all lake front home owners, and provide written warranties for all of our recommended work.
