Retaining Walls Peoria, IL
There are many benefits of choosing concrete as a building material for your retaining wall. The biggest advantage we see with installing a retaining wall is to control erosion. Even though we can't see it in front of us, the ground and landscape is moving at an extremely slow rate. Overtime there could be areas of your landscape that will be pushed and can cause a hazardous situation. Since concrete has incredible strength, it's an excellent solution to control erosion and keep the soil in place. It can also be very beneficial during a hard rain if you experience any soil moving. A retaining wall will help prevent any further movement.
Another major benefit of a concrete retaining wall is the beautiful aesthetics it will bring to your home or place of business. If you have dirt plies or sloping hills this can come off as an eye sore. Upgrading your landscape with a wall installed by us will really enhance your view.
A question we get frequently is how much does a concrete retaining wall cost? Well, the answer varies on multiple factors. There are three types of walls you can choose from which would be blocks, precast panels or poured in walls. All three have their own individual pros and cons along with variances in pricing. We can help you go over all three of these installations to help you determine what's best for your project.
Another question we get often is how long will a concrete retaining wall last? You can expect a concrete retaining wall to last upwards of twenty years before you could see any issues. This very situational because every soil condition will move at a it's own individual pace. What we love about choosing concrete for your retaining wall is that it's in our opinion the strongest building material available and can really hold up overtime compared to others.
If you have wondered, how do you build a concrete retaining wall? It's a pretty cool process! The first step is to set the levels and to check the area for any power lines or pipes. Then, you dig!

We rely on using the Peoria local building codes for guidance. We will then start to install the concrete by block, formed panels or a direct pour. We will then make sure it has the proper amount of time to cure. Once we have ensure the wall is solid we will then take the right steps to waterproof and then start to backfill.
