Quality Retaining Walls by Lake Erie Shores Contracting
Why Get a Retaining Wall?
Business's and homeowners may choose to have a retaining wall installed on their property. Erosion is often a deciding factor because a wall will stop soil movement in its' path. If you live on a particularly steep plot of land, or have been noticing soil creep recently, a retaining wall could be a good decision.When properly constructed, a well-made retaining wall is a long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing addition to your yard.
Which Wall is Right For You?
Depending on what you’re looking for, there are a few different types of retaining walls to choose from along with many different types of materials.
Wood is the most affordable option, so if you’re on a budget this is likely the best material for you. It is important to keep in mind that while its' initial price tag is likely lower than for other materials, the lifespan is also significantly shorter, so you should factor in maintenance and replacement costs when deciding whether or not going with wood is the right decision.
For a more resilient wall, mortar is a good choice. In this case, materials like brick or stone are fused together, creating a structure that stands up to years of use. While a bit pricier, mortared walls are long-lasting and, because of the multitude of materials available, they offer countless opportunities for customization.
Segmented retaining walls are a third option offered by Lake Erie Shores Contracting. This type of wall uses bricks that are designed to fit together like puzzle pieces. Midway between the cost of a wooden wall and a mortared one, segmented retaining walls provide the durability of a pricier wall, while still being budget-friendly.
