What You Need to Know About Retaining Walls

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.

Signs You Have a Collapsing Retaining Wall

  • Spreading cracks

  • Cosmetic damage like staining, flaking, warping

  • Crumbling

  • Visible Leaning and Bowing

  • Separation from Adjacent Walls

While each of these issues on their own may not be a serious concern, they can be an indication of deterioration.

How To Fix A Retaining Wall

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.
