Residential Retaining Wall
Retaining walls are a specialized support system that allows you to expand the use of your property and ensure that the foundation of your home stays right where it is placed. We provide experienced and affordable ways to develop your property into one that offers all of the functional space you need, using materials that will stand up to the test of elements and time.
What is a residential retaining wall?
A residential retaining wall is a structure designed, installed, and used to help maintain the soil composition in areas that are prone to high levels of moisture content, uneven terrain, and other geographic factors that can compromise the strength of the foundation of your home. It can be constructed using concrete block, pavers, or treated lumber. Our retaining wall experts can look at your building site and give the best and safest recommendations for the materials and design on retainer walls needed to ensure your home is sturdy, safe, and space is as usable as possible.
When should I consider a home retaining wall?
The need to build retaining wall protection should be a critical part of the planning with any new home construction. A homeowner can install smaller retainer walls but larger walls require the involvement of a professional to make sure the design is safe and will last a few decades without needing major repairs. A few reasons to consider a home retainer wall are
Using a Retainer Wall for Increased Soil Stability
Soil that is unpredictably loose and exposed to large amounts of water is not stable enough to build on without added methods of stabilization. Water-soaked soil swells and expands and will place damaging pressure on any foundation it contacts. Being able to build retaining wall protection and buffering makes it possible to build on almost any property. A series of piles that reaches deep into the ground will help keep the earth in place and provide a strong, durable foundation for your home. Use of materials like concrete, stone pavers, and treated wood are tough enough to hold this soil back for many years.
Create Usable Areas on Uneven Property
A majority of Dayton is relatively flat, but there are a few prime areas for development that have an uneven surface. Creating a level area to place the foundation of a home might be an uncomplicated matter, but it does not offer you the solutions you need to maximize the use of your property. Installing a retaining wall for patio construction or a retaining wall for garden development will allow you to enjoy more of your outdoor living space. We will install retaining walls in stages that help provide level areas on extreme inclines and declines.
Beautify Your Natural Surroundings
Taking a wild piece of property and taming it to build your dream home can be half the fun of constructing a new house. Our retaining wall specialists can show you ways to improve the landscaping of your property that eliminate problems of erosion and uneven surfaces. You can enjoy beautiful retainer walls that can contain lush flower gardens, shrubbery, barriers for walkways, patios, and customized property barriers. We will use materials that help accentuate the natural beauty and complement your chosen architecture.
