Retaining walls can look so elegant that it is easy to forget they are installed to do an important job. A retaining wall is set in place to hold back soil that becomes extremely wet or shifts for any other reason. At Masonry, Waterproofing, and Drainage Masters, we offer retaining wall repair that will keep this valuable asset in great condition.
What is a brick or concrete retaining wall?
Retaining walls are used on a property that has an uneven slope, usually one that drops off at a dramatic angle. The concrete or brick material acts as an anchor to keep soil erosion and dirt collapse from happening. It is critical to have these on any property that is subject to seasonally heavy rains.
