What Are Retaining Walls?
A retaining wall is a structure that is used to hold back the earth and rock. This can be done by installing a wall, usually made of concrete blocks, on the ground. Retaining walls are most often installed in places where there’s been construction work on the land or where there’s a slope that needs to be stabilized. They are also used in areas where it’s necessary to protect buildings from erosion or landslides.
Retaining walls are sometimes used for aesthetic reasons too, for example when they’re built around gardens or as part of landscaping projects. We work on all types of retaining walls both for structural/stabilizing reasons as well as cosmetic retaining walls for your gardens or landscaping.
Types Of Retaining Walls
Retaining walls can be made from many different materials such as earth, stone, brick, timber, or concrete. They can also be built out of steel rails and posts.
There are a few types of retaining walls used often in the Central Valley:
- Poured concrete retaining walls
- Masonry retaining walls
- Interlacing concrete block retaining walls
Concrete block retaining walls are the most common type of retaining wall because they can be built in a variety of shapes and sizes. These simple structures are made from concrete blocks that are stacked and crisscrossed to create a strong wall.
Poured concrete walls have to be poured by a professional and require a reinforced concrete footing. The concrete can be poured into a form and then finished off with more concrete or walling. The footings for the wall are poured first, and this helps to create an even stronger base for your retaining walls.
Masonry walls are often used for decorative purposes as a variety of stone and brick types can be used to create an aesthetically pleasing appearance. No matter what type of retaining wall you need, A1 Concrete Modesto is here to help. Give us a call to discuss your project and get a free quote.
