Block retaining walls are growing in popularity in Seattle and the surrounding cities. This is for a variety of reasons. Block retaining walls are a great way to reconstruct areas with difficult access, and are a wonderful, modern option for buyers seeking to avoid the expense of a fully concrete retaining wall.
Finding the Right Block
The retaining wall blocks that you choose should match the environment and atmosphere of your home. Concrete blocks can come in a variety of shapes, structures, colors and textures. Our experienced retaining wall service team here at B&D Rockeries will help you to select the best option for your structure as well as your atmosphere and design goals.
Retaining Wall Construction
Before beginning construction on your retaining wall, our retaining wall experts first identify and mark the area where the wall will be built. There is always the possibility that your Homeowner’s Association has a regulation or code that could prohibit the legal construction of the wall due to water mains, sewers, or electrical wires. At B&D Rockeries, we research these things on your behalf, so that we can avoid wasted time, energy, and resources.
Once all the details are in order and the blocks have been chosen, our skilled team will begin construction. Retaining wall construction will take anywhere between a few days to several weeks to complete. This duration will depend upon the size and complexity of the retaining wall.
After digging a foundational trench, our builders will install gravel and other support structures to ensure that water flow is properly redirected and that the wall will have a strong and secure foundation. From there, builders construct the wall layer by layer, ensuring that the courses are even and level for a beautiful finished product.
If you are considering a retaining wall and would like the unique block look, our team here at B&D Rockeries would love to support your project with reliability, excellent customer service, and skill. For more information, feel free to give us a call at (866) 756-6789, or fill out our contact form.
