The 3 Most Common Retaining Wall Construction Mistakes
Whether it’s to save money or that people just feel a sense of accomplishment, building a retaining wall yourself typically comes with risks. Here are the top 3 common mistakes you’ll likely run into.
- Poor Footing
Poor foundations are no doubt, the most common problem causing retaining walls to fail. There a few reason for this.
Not Deep Enough:
If the retaining wall isn’t deep enough into the ground that supports all of the soil that will be placed above, the weight will likely warp the wall. This a common site when walking along a wall and you see a bend, or worse, a collapsed wall.
Proper retaining wall stones and materials make a big difference. The correct width and depth are also critical. The use of improper materials means degradation, erosion and ultimately lead to the collapse of the wall due to weight.
Bottom line is that water that can’t go anywhere, builds a swamp and will lead to erosion as the water overflows and tries to get out. A big storm will make a wall with drainage problems simply fall over.
- Wrong Materials
You need to get retainin wall materials from reliable quarries and suppliers. Having local knowledge combined with professional experience means you’ll be in good standing. Without this knowledge, you’ll likely overpay for the wrong or insufficient product.
- Bad Build
Lots of planning, coordination, and correct installation is required to prevent drainage problems and future retaining wall malfunctions.
Leveling stones is critical for a seamless final product. Having a warped looking product isn’t really what anyone wants.
