There is no doubt in my that we on Marco are being taken for a ride when it comes to what we have to pay for sea walls.
There are numerous other areas around Florida that pay far less than what the rip off artists charge us here. I have heard that in some areas the costs is about 40% of what our lack of true competition contractors are getting away with here.
I heard someone say to me that he was quoted $30,000 to replace an 80 foot sea wall. In other areas of Florida the quote is less than $15,000 for the same length wall.
Are our contractors using silver coated rebar or just coating their pockets with the highest amount they can charge and get away with?
We need to open this up to true competition and allow other sea wall contractors access this honey hole that local contractors presently have.
