How Can Retaining Wall Repair Help My Commercial Property?

If you have a commercial property, you may not think that retaining walls add much value to the overall look and feel of your premises. However, there are many benefits of retaining walls that can help your business:

  • Protect your property from erosion and water runoff: Retaining walls are designed to hold back soil and water. They are essential for hillside properties and uneven lots.

  • Improve drainage: Retaining walls help direct water away from your property and prevent flooding. As well as moving water towards retention ponds.

  • Add value to your property: A well-maintained and well-designed retaining wall can add value to your property and make it more appealing to potential buyers.

  • Beautify your property: Retaining walls can enhance your property’s appearance.

 

Our retaining wall repair and other services keep your commercial property in great shape, structurally and aesthetically.

How Does It Work?

If your retaining wall is damaged, you may not be sure how to start the repair process. Here's what to expect:

  1. First, we'll do an inspection of your retaining wall and determine what's needed for repairs.

  2. Once we have an idea of the issues causing the failure to your wall, we can then work on the best repair plan to fix those issues.

  3. Generally, issues arise from not having proper drainage behind the wall, strong enough footer to support the weight of the wall or failing building materials used in the original build. 

 

Types of Concrete Retaining Walls Repair

Depending on the type of commercial property and the nature of repairs required, we may use a few different methods to perform concrete retaining wall repair:

  • Helical tiebacks: These are screw anchors inserted into the ground and used to pull the retaining wall back into place or stabilize the structure.

  • Soldier pile and lagging walls: This type of wall is used to support the weight of the soil behind it, which helps prevent soil erosion.

  • Soil nail walls: When the soil is too weak, soil nails anchor the retaining wall into the ground.

  • Polyurethane Soil Stabilization: This type of Poly Foam is used to stabilize weak soils and densify the surrounding soils to allow for the proper weight distribution of the wall.

  • Install proper Drainage: Most times wall failure is due to failure of the drainage system, or no drainage system was ever installed.  We can install a new system to relieve the hydraulic water pressure from behind the wall.

 

We also work on wood retaining walls and build new retaining walls.
