Time and time again we’ve been called in to help repair retaining walls that have essentially been broken apart. We mentioned on the homepage, we don’t want to bash other builders too much. There are times where the conditions can change or you get more pressure on the surface for some reason that you really didn’t anticipate. That is what essentially causes the collapse. When you plan things out the right way though and you account for all of the potential dangers that could essentially break up the wall, you are going to have a better chance of success.
What Type of Walls Can You Build?
Naturally, the retaining walls that we build are going to be concrete based. That does not mean that we are not going to be willing to play around with the design a little bit. Our walls don’t have to be just blobs of concrete. Also, our walls are not necessarily always the largest structures out there. We can build different types of retaining walls. This basically proves the biggest point that we always want to make when it comes to retaining walls. That is, the fact that when the wall is put in the right place it has a better chance of getting the job done.
Retaining Wall Repairs
Many people want us to essentially fill walls that are falling apart with concrete to make sure that they hold up. Right off the bat, we can say that there are certain walls that we are going to “save”. There are other walls that are going to be better off if we tear them down and start over. We are going to be 100% honest with you here, over the type of results that we believe we are going to be able to provide.
Retaining walls are not just built at the bottom of hills to make sure that the terrain doesn’t slide onto a house. We could also build retaining walls to create rose gardens or other particular areas. In these structures, we are not only going to have to worry about the pressure that is coming from beyond the wall so to speak. We would also have to worry about the pressure that can build up within the structure that we create. As you can see these can be truly unique challenges. Even though once you have it properly set up in your home it can look like the most simple thing in the world.
