Retaining Wall Repair

Do You Need

Retaining Wall Repair?

A retaining wall is an essential structure in any landscape where it’s constructed. It serves to prevent soil from shifting and causing erosion, thus safeguarding nearby structures. However, like any wall, a retaining wall can develop issues such as cracks, bowing, or leaning over time.

If your retaining wall is built on a concrete foundation and begins to show signs of distress, it’s crucial to consult a reputable foundation repair company. Dritek Foundation Solutions has the expertise to diagnose and address these problems, ensuring the stability and longevity of your retaining wall.

Signs You Need

Retaining Wall Repair

Most signs of retaining wall damage are clearly visible with a careful inspection. Symptoms to look for include:

  • Cracks in the wall
  • Wall bowing
  • Horizontal movement of the wall

These issues can stem from a variety of causes, which may occur simultaneously. The leading causes of retaining wall damage are:

  • Loads exceeding specifications
  • Problems with the foundation
  • Inadequate specifications at time of building
  • Aging walls
  • Sub-standard construction quality
  • Root overgrowth

Only a professional like those at Dritek Foundation Solutions will be able to determine what combination of factors has led to retaining wall damage and take the necessary action to stabilize and strengthen the wall.

Our Retaining Wall

Solutions

At Dritek, we use tried and true basement wall repair methods to fix bowing retaining walls. Our GeoLock wall anchor system stabilizes the wall by embedding earth anchors in soil, which we then connect to steel channel anchors. After we tighten them, the anchors hold the wall in place until the dry season, when anchors can be tightened to straighten the wall over time.

If the problem originated in the foundation, we use a Helical Pier System to stabilize and lift it. Any surface cracks can be filled and sealed to improve the look of the wall and prevent further cracking. 

Basement Problems Don’t Get Better with Time. They Get Better With Us.
