Retaining Wall Services
Retaining walls are likely something you put little to no thought into until you have to have one installed. They serve an incredibly important function on your property and, if not installed properly, can become an eyesore. To get the most from your retaining wall, both aesthetically and functionally, employ the services of a masonry contractor near you!
What is a retaining wall?
Retaining walls are used to secure large masses of soil that would otherwise be washed onto your property by rain, wind, or other factors. They require a keen eye for detail when being installed to ensure the best results. The reason for this is that retaining walls require proper drainage and must be carefully built to hold the weight of the soil that it holds specifically (there is no “one size fits all” solution). We have been expertly installing retaining walls for over a decade and ensure that we carefully produce a plan of action suited to the unique needs of the project that we are working on.
Brick retaining walls
There are a ton of different materials that you can choose from for your retaining wall, from wood to concrete, though we have two preferred materials for retaining walls that deliver the best results and longest lifespans: brick and stone. Brick is built to last, generally using common materials that do not require damage to the environment to produce. Bricks are easy to maintain, often only requiring minimal maintenance to keep looking good as new. Even when maintenance is needed, small sections can be replaced at a low cost, as opposed to replacing entire sections or the whole wall.
Stone retaining walls
Retaining walls should primarily prevent the displacement of soil on your property, but they should also fit into the natural aesthetic of your property. For this reason, stone is a great choice for retaining walls. Stone is made to withstand the harshest of environmental factors and stone retaining walls are no exception. They last incredibly long while offering an elevated aesthetic appeal that cannot be achieved by any other material, at least in our opinion. We have an assortment of stones to choose from, so if the idea of a stone retaining wall tickles your fancy, get in touch with us!
Decorative retaining walls
If you are looking for something that will stand out and add a touch of beauty to your property, then a decorated retaining wall will serve you best. Decorative retaining walls can come in a variety of shapes, colors, and designs. Prefabricated blocks, woven mesh baskets with a variety of choices of stone, and stone cladding – there are a ton of decorative options. The benefit of having a professional service installing these is that we understand the inner workings of a retaining wall and what it needs to get the most from it.
