The Benefits of Quay Heading

Investing in quay heading in Norfolk offers a wealth of benefits for your waterfront property. Beyond practical solutions for mooring and shoreline protection, a well-constructed quay heading transforms your landscape. Discover how it safeguards your land, enhances the functionality of your waterfront, and boosts the overall appeal and value of your Norfolk property.

  • Prevents erosion and protects your land: A strong quay heading acts as a barrier, shielding your valuable land from the erosive forces of water, waves, and boat traffic.

  • Improves your mooring capabilities: Secure, well-designed quay headings provide safe and convenient spots for docking your boat or watercraft, making it easier to enjoy all that Norfolk’s waterways have to offer.

  • Enhances the aesthetic appeal of your waterfront: A beautiful quay heading not only adds functionality but also transforms your waterfront property into a source of pride. It complements your landscape and creates a visually pleasing space.

  • Increases the value of your property: Well-maintained and attractive waterfront properties command a premium. Investing in a quality quay heading enhances the overall desirability and value of your land.

Sheet piling and jetty installation on waterways.

12m Quay Heading Installation

"Following receiving an advertising flyer about DRE marine engineering capabilities, I contacted Daniel Roe for a quotation to undertake a timber jetty (plan area 7.5x1.8) and quay heading piling (length 12m) replacement at my property on Oulton Broad. I was very impressed with his proposal to replace the worn-out timbers with a hardwood which was as dense as Greenheart. Also the sheet piles would be tongue and grooved. In conclusion I was very satisfied with the finished product, both with quality of materials used, quality of workmanship and the final price represented very good value. I found Daniel very personable and a competent marine engineer and I have no hesitation in recommending DRE for carrying out inland marine engineering projects." - Mr S Read CEng MIC

36m Quay Heading Installation and Dredging

"We first used DRE to install a 36m section of quay heading. Since then they have completed dredging works in 2 of our basins and groundworks on our site. I've always been impressed at the speed and quality of their work and will continue to use them in the future." - Mr L Dickson - Reeds Lane Marina, St Olaves

Quay Heading Replacement Work

"I can unreservedly recommend Daniel Roe Engineering for the quality of the work, the fair pricing and the efficiency with which the job was done. In the spring of 2023 they replaced part of our quay heading and widened and rebuilt the slipway. The job was done on time and on budget with the site left neat and tidy. Daniel is an artist with a mini-digger - I felt I could have set up benches and charged people to watch him. Go to him first for any groundworks, and waterside jobs especially." - Mr T Kirwan , Dilham December 2023
