Retaining Wall Repair In Seattle
The Purpose of Retaining Walls
Retaining walls are an important feature of any property with elevated terrain because they serve to retain the lateral pressure of soil. More simply, retaining walls are used to hold back soil and substrate from moving due to the effects of gravity and erosion. Retaining walls can be made from a variety of materials, but are typically designed out of concrete, stone, wood (including railroad ties), vinyl, masonry, steel, or brick.
Retaining Walls Make an Unusable Space Useful
A retaining wall can be an important factor in turning unusable outdoor spaces into more productive areas of your property. For example, they can provide space to plant trees and flowers. Creating mini gardens and new outdoor living spots is highly possible with retaining walls. Not everyone understands how to plan or build a retaining wall correctly. Mistakes in the design or construction of retaining walls can create serious headaches (particularly water problems) for you or your neighbors. Seattle Foundation Repairs brings superior landscaping expertise to every project, often solving problems in advance that competitors don’t foresee.
Signs Your Retaining Wall Needs To Be Fixed
To fix this, we would be using our wall anchor to reconnect your retaining walls to more stable soil. Once anchored, you will start to see your wall straightening. Our wall anchors are a definite permanent solution, which means that you won’t have to remove or replace them.
These foundation anchors would be installed in an already bowing wall to counteract the pressure that is being forced against that wall. The anchors would be installed on either the inside or the outside of the bowing foundation wall. Present-day anchors can also be installed into the earth without the need for any excavations.
Bracing the walls
This is one of the most in-demand methods of repairing these walls. Bracing the walls involves having the walls reinforced. They may come in the form of carbon fiber strips or steel beams. This provides you with a long-term repair to the wall ensuring its support.
