RETAINING WALL INSTALLATION IN SACRAMENTO, CA
RETAINING WALL BUILDERS
A retaining wall is a structure that holds or retains soil behind it. Retaining walls are often built to create level surfaces for their height to help make sense of complicated landscapes, but they also have aesthetic and functional purposes. Developing a retaining wall can be a difficult decision. They can be quite costly, yet they are extremely beneficial.
It is always a good idea to plan ahead when building a retaining wall so that you are not faced with carrying construction materials by hand since you should have the appropriate equipment and tools to minimize the labor involved when building the wall.
A reputable retaining wall contractor can help you architect a wall that blends right into your property, with skilled workmanship and careful attention to detail. From the wall’s initial layout design all the way to post-installation inspection, we can provide the service you need.
TYPES OF RETAINING WALLS
Poured Concrete – Whether it is residential or commercial, poured concrete retaining walls can be cost effective, durable and attractive. They literally can define a property line and combine functionality with curb appeal. Depending on how you design it, a concrete retaining wall adds a level of beauty to anything from an upscale home to a multi-storied business.
Interlocking Blocks – Concrete blocks are another popular option for retaining wall choices for a home. These are made using concrete that is poured into molds in the shape of interlocking cubes. Sometimes, the blocks are chiseled and sanded to create a unique appearance.
Natural Wood – This is a cheap and easy to install material, and one that people seem to gravitate naturally towards when thinking about adding a retaining wall. But wood has several areas where it falls short compared to other materials. It does not take long for wood to begin to decompose in the harsh conditions of outdoor areas that do not have some sort of roof.
BENEFITS OF A RETAINING WALL
Structural Support – A retaining wall is a structure used to prevent earth from slumping downhill. Being a softer material, dirt tends to erode and slide away from where it is supposed to be. If you have a gentle slope or you live in an area with a tendency for landslides, it is important to install one.
Reduce Soil Erosion – Soil erosion is a common problem to any homeowner with a landscape, whether it be a lush lawn, vegetables, or even a tree filled area. In any of these situations, soil erosion will have a negative effect on the quality of the landscape.
Flood Control – If your home or business is located in an area commonly affected by flooding, a retaining wall may be able to protect your property from the damage and destruction that can come from a flood. Flooding is a serious threat most commonly associated with heavy rainfall, but it can also occur when ice or melting snow overtops drainage systems.
