Our engineers would be happy to provide a free evaluation to determine the actual causes and share solutions to your issues.
You may have a retainer wall on your property where there are structured layers or uneven sloping land. Over time, these retaining walls can begin to deteriorate, crack, lean, bow, and crumble. Retaining walls are subject to high levels of pressure because they are not part of a full structure, which can lead to collapsing retaining walls.
Like all types of structural damage, the issue will only get worse over time and eventually cause collapse. If a retaining wall near your property collapses a large amount of soil and potentially water can cause severe damage to your home and other property.
Cosmetic damage like staining, flaking, warping
Visible Leaning and Bowing
Separation from Adjacent Walls
Tree roots or plants growing through your retaining wall
While each of these issues on their own may not be a serious concern, they can be an indication of deterioration.
Helical tiebacks are an effective method of repair for failing retainer walls. This stabilizes the damaged wall by applying equal but opposite force to a wall to counteract the weight of the soil behind it.
Additional solutions include installing extra drainage systems or replacing the most damaged sections of a wall.
