In many of Vancouver's landscapes, a retaining wall can ensure that you get the most out of your yard and play an important role for yards with a sloped property or changes in elevation. The installation of a retaining wall can extend an unusable sloped area into a flat and level functional part of your landscape. With a flat area to work with, the installation of patios, lawn areas, and more all become possible.
A RETAINING WALL REINFORCES THE LANDSCAPES SO WHEN BAD WEATHER HITS, YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY
When constructing a retaining wall, it is extremely important to make sure the wall is structurally sound. If a retaining wall fails, it can cost you a large amount to repair the wall its self as well as damage it can cause to the surrounding area. In many cases it can also put yourself and others at risk of physical harm. For these reasons we make sure that are walls are built to code and built to last. A proper wall foundation is always necessary as a starting point. Functional drainage is also required to avoid the build of water in the soil behind the wall. If the soil behind a retaining wall becomes over saturated with water it can cause a large amount of force on the wall increasing the chance of failure. Correct installation of different materials available for constructing retaining walls is the final step. All of this will be carefully planned and carried out to make sure we can guarantee your retaining wall to last. If we don't feel completely confident that that your retaining wall will have no risk of failure then we wont build it. Our customer's safety and satisfaction with the completed product is our main concern with every retaining wall we build.
