Are you the not-so-proud owner of an ugly shoreline? Maybe you’ve been putting up with its unsightly appearance for years, or maybe you’ve just recently purchased your lake home and inherited a shoreline in need of a facelift. The good news, is that whether your shoreline is in need of a little TLC, or a complete makeover, we can help!
Are you dealing with a damaged shoreline? Brutal winters that cause ice heaving can wreak havoc on shorelines across MN. Even a single nasty summer storm can leave your shoreline in complete ruin – especially if your shoreline was not built properly. The aesthetics and protection of your shoreline have now been compromised, and we can help.
Are you losing your precious lakeshore due to erosion? Whether Mother Nature is slowly gulping up your shoreline wave by wave, inch by inch, or you have a more pressing issue (as depicted in the photo shown above), we can help. We’ve been controlling erosion for more than 20 years, and there’s no erosion problem we can't solve!
The toughest, classiest riprap shoreline you can get.
Your local landscaper can't stop the erosion
Any old landscaper can unfurl some sweatshop-made landscape fabric, dump unwashed quarry rock on it, and call it a shoreline. That's usually what happens. But hiring a landscaper is a mistake, because their work rarely lasts. If the shoreline doesn't collapse after a winter, it starts looking ratty and ownerless.
Riprap specialists who build riprap shorelines that last
We at the Lakeshore Guys think you probably want a little more out of your shoreline. You want your lakefront home or cabin to be a place where things look good and don't break. You want your shoreline to be as tough as possible, but also easy on the eyes.
We specialize in riprap shorelines, but offer a full range of services to create your perfect shoreline. The Lakeshore Guys' signature Armored Shoreline is the toughest riprap shoreline money can buy.
Our painstaking perfectionism has a purpose, though. You want your shoreline to stand the test of time, so you don’t have to get it rebuilt in 2 years. You also want it to match your tastes perfectly - as though you placed every stone and plant with your own hands.
You want it to be so durable that generations of your family feel like your shoreline has been in the family for as long as there’s been a lake.
We save shorelines throughout Minnesota
Lakeshore property owners from all parts of Minnesota trust Lakeshore Guys to rescue their shorelines. We've saved shorelines in the Brainerd / Pelican Lake / Whitefish Chain of Lakes area, the Detroit Lakes area, and of course around greater Minneapolis / St. Paul. Just as Minnesota is known for its lakes, lake-loving Minnesotans prefer to work with a company that is known for lakeshore expertise - specifically, building the toughest riprap shorelines known to man.
We also travel
Although Minnesota is our home, we travel to shorelines throughout the Midwest, including in lake-rich Wisconsin and North Dakota. If you're willing to put us up in a cheap hotel for a few days, we can build you a shoreline that will delight you for many years.
For certain large projects, we can also travel outside of the Midwest - to wherever in the US your shoreline might be.
