Retaining Wall Damage

One of the main causes of retaining wall damage is excessive water build-up behind the wall, or hydrostatic pressure. Whether it is a simple retaining wall of wood, stone, or brick or a large complex retaining wall of concrete, water damage is an ever-present danger to the walls integrity. Water pressure can crack and deform retaining walls leading to costly repairs and in some cases replacement.

Wall drainage systems installed on the back end of a retaining wall can minimize the damage due to water and extend the life and integrity of any retaining wall.
