Retaining Wall Damage
Most retaining wall failures are due to a lack of proper drainage systems behind the wall to reduce hydrostatic (water) pressure. Active failures include bulging, leaning, bowing, and material deterioration due to high moisture content of the retained soils.
A proper drainage system will capture and re-direct surface water infiltration from behind the wall, which dramatically reduces the hydrostatic pressure.
We are often able to stabilize and save existing retaining walls by excavating behind them and installing drainage systems rather than demolishing and rebuilding. Stabilizing a retaining wall rather than rebuilding can be a large cost savings.
