Retaining & Basement Wall Services
Retaining walls can lean, move, or bow over time. Spartanburg’s hilly landscape and plentiful rain put retaining walls through their paces. Whether you have professionally or DIY constructed walls, moisture buildup in the retained soils will eventually cause pressure damage. This damage can occur rapidly with poor drainage.
Proper retaining wall repair is crucial to prevent complete wall failure and destruction of property. The ideal approach will vary according to factors such as:
- The type of retaining wall
- The extent of soil movement and wall damage
- Wall height
- The height of retained soils
- Whether drainage needs improvement
Basement walls, like retaining walls, lean, bow, crack and move over time. Most Carolina builders construct basements with concrete masonry blocks because they make for quick foundation construction. However, concrete blocks are particularly vulnerable to lateral pressure from our local clay-rich soil expanding with moisture.
Whether due to poor drainage or time, damage from expansion pressure requires help from a foundation repair specialist.
