What are the benefits of a retaining wall for my home and how long do they last?

Residential retaining walls are often used to protect exposed basements from the effects of erosion. For homes on top of hills, retaining walls keep the foundation from shifting. For homes at the bottom of a hill, a retaining wall will keep loose soil from building up around the house. Different placement of a wall will provide different results for your home and yard. Commercial retaining walls provide functional support and aesthetic appeal to business properties. When constructing a new building, retaining walls help keep the area level by controlling the grading. Properly constructed retaining walls can last decades.

What are segmental retaining walls?

Brick or stone blocks are stacked in an interlocking pattern to create segments along your wall. This is different from some retaining walls which are a single piece of poured concrete or made from slatted wood. The blocks must be specifically placed to ensure the fit is right and the final wall will be strong.

How high can a retaining wall be?

Several factors will determine how high your retaining wall will be. Some walls may only need to be 2 feet high while others on commercial land might exceed 40 feet. It will depend on your property and how much protection you need the wall to provide.

What sort of draining system should be installed with my retaining wall?

Our contractors will find the best drainage solution for your retaining walls. Some walls may require drainage pipes while others only need a few weep holes drilled into the blocks.

How many different looks are available for retaining walls?

There are countless possibilities for your commercial or residential retaining walls. Blocks are available in different sizes, a variety of colors, and from different materials. Ask our contractors for details about custom retaining wall designs for your property.
