If you are looking to get a retaining wall built you better make sure that the people that are going to build your wall have at least done this before! Remember that retaining walls are not just there to try and make your property look good. Their main purpose is to keep things like soil or water from reaching your home or a specific part of your property. This should be the main focus for the builders that are working in this structure for you. At Concrete Driveway Pros we have the experience working on these types of projects!
Starting From Scratch
When you need to build a new retaining wall from the ground up the first thing that you need to know is what type of surface you are building on! The main reason that you actually build retaining walls is to make sure that the soil does not erode and leave your home in the middle of the street. Most of the soil that we have around here locally is not exactly quicksand so you shouldn’t be excessively worried! That being said, we still have to take everything into consideration when we are planning to build a wall.
Fixing A Broken Structure
There is no reason that we should sugar coat this when we get a call from people that are looking to get us to fix a retaining wall it is because your previous installation did not work. When this happens we may need to bring in some extra help from landscapers to asses the situation. That really will depend on where it is that you need to build the retaining wall. Other times what we will do is just totally tear down the existing structure and build a new one in its place that can handle the soil erosion.
What Type of Wall Are You Looking For?
After we get all of the safety concerns out of the way we can bring in some style experts. When we are a building a wall we will try to build a structure that can match the existing home or the way that any type of property is built. We can offer a wide array of color and design options to make sure that you don’t only have a retaining wall that gets the job done, but also one that looks the part. We have a large portfolio of walls that we have built that you can take a look at for inspiration!
How Long Will The Building Process Take?
First of all, if you are trying to get a wall built to combat the heavy rains that your property is getting it may be a little too late. Even the date in which the project is started should be right to make sure that we can finish everything up quickly with a relatively good climate. The duration of the project will depend on the size of the wall. It can vary from a couple of days to a couple of weeks!
