Enter the length, height, unit price per square foot of the seawall material, width, and unit price per linear foot of the seawall construction into the calculator to determine the cost of the seawall; this calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

## Seawall Cost Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the cost of a seawall:

C = (L * H * P) + (L * W * M)

Variables:

- C is the cost of the seawall
- L is the length of the seawall
- H is the height of the seawall
- P is the unit price per square foot of the seawall material
- W is the width of the seawall
- M is the unit price per linear foot of the seawall construction

To calculate the cost of the seawall, multiply the length of the seawall by the height of the seawall and the unit price per square foot of the seawall material. Then, multiply the length of the seawall by the width of the seawall and the unit price per linear foot of the seawall construction. Add the two results together to get the total cost of the seawall.

## What is a Seawall Cost?

A seawall cost refers to the total amount of money required to construct, maintain, and repair a seawall. This cost can vary greatly depending on several factors such as the size and length of the seawall, the materials used, the complexity of the design, the location, and the labor costs in the area. For instance, a seawall made of concrete or steel will be more expensive than one made of wood or vinyl. Additionally, if the seawall is being built in an area with difficult terrain or high labor costs, the total cost will be higher. The cost also includes regular maintenance and repairs to ensure the seawall remains effective in protecting the shoreline from erosion and flooding. This can include costs for inspections, cleaning, sealing, or replacing damaged parts.

## How to Calculate Seawall Cost?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Seawall Cost:

- First, determine the length of the seawall (in meters).
- Next, determine the height of the seawall (in meters).
- Next, determine the cost per meter of seawall ($/m).
- Finally, calculate the Seawall Cost using the formula: Seawall Cost = Length x Height x Cost per meter.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem:**

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

Length of seawall (m) = 50

Height of seawall (m) = 5

Cost per meter of seawall ($/m) = 100
