Providing First-Rate Retaining Wall Installation in Johnstown, PA
Retaining walls bear a much larger load than freestanding walls. They must hold their own weight and counter the lateral forces of the earth they retain. When water saturates the soil, it can multiply the load on the retaining walls. For this reason, Straight Edge Concrete makes special provisions when installing your retaining wall. These include:
- Tie-backs (dead-man anchors) that anchor the wall into the soil
- A pitch or batter that leans toward the soil
- Footings to support the wall especially against frozen or loose soil
- Drains to move water and prevent pressure build-up
These provisions are for reinforcing retaining walls for safety.
