Bulkheads fall into three basic categories.
- If the house was built before the 1940’s, it is a wooden bulkhead on top of either granite or brick walls.
- Newer homes have steel bulkheads. Many homeowners with steel bulkheads mistake the red primer, that is factory applied as the finish coat, and after five years or so the bulkhead often times has rusted to the point where there may be holes through it.
- The third case is a well maintained bulkhead that will last for many, many years.
Needless to say, the first two types of bulkheads are the most common. If your bulkhead falls into either of the first two categories give BSR Services a call and we will get your bulkhead fixed and ready for many years of wear and tear!
