Retaining Walls in Woodstock GA

For thirty years Woodstock, GA has relied upon our expertise for new and replacement retaining walls and driveways. Get a free estimate on a professionally designed and engineered earth retention wall and concrete work on residential and commercial projects.

Architectural retaining walls increase the functional space of your property for outdoor living spaces including swimming pools, play areas for children, concrete or paver patios and outdoor fireplaces. Every retaining wall we build includes the appropriate footing, backfill, soil reinforcement and a drainage system.

Retaining Wall Certification

A growing number of Georgia cities and counties are making an engineer’s certification stamp mandatory on all new and replacement retaining walls. In such areas, the appropriate personnel from our company will conduct the requisite site visits to certify your retaining wall. These regulations are a protective response to the spike in failed retaining walls without a building permit which left consumers with property damage, a financial loss and no legal recourse. Should a contractor tell you that an engineer’s plan and a building permit are unnecessary, get the facts and a second opinion!

Crosstie Retaining Wall Replacement

On average, the lifespan of a crosstie retaining wall is twenty-five years. We advise that crosstie retaining walls be replaced with poured concrete or concrete masonry. After the retaining wall passes inspection by the city or county, we can finish the wall with a colored stucco, brick or stone veneer. A modular block retaining wall may also be approved; but only when it is not visible from the street.

Retaining Wall with Driveway

As both a retaining wall and concrete contractor, we can replace your retaining wall and driveway at the same time. This saves money and avoids the hassles of hiring and timing the work of multiple contractors for the same project.

Poured Concrete Retaining Walls

Poured concrete are the strongest retaining walls for lateral support and compressive strength. Water resistance, extended lifespan, and the ability to incorporate attractive veneers such as stucco, painted brick, natural and artificial stone are among the many additional advantages that poured concrete walls have over other types of retaining walls.

Retaining Wall Lifespan

Poured concrete and concrete masonry retaining walls have a life-expectancy of fifty years.

Helical Piers

When the ground is too soft to effectively support a retaining wall with a normal footing, the installation of steel helical piers may be required. Also known as screw piles or helical anchors, helical piers are large steel screws which drill down through the soft earth and anchor to solid ground beneath. Once the piers reach firm support, they act as posts upon which we fasten the retaining wall footing.
