A lot of homeowners don't pay attention to retaining walls. This is even though these structures play important roles in protecting your homes from collapsing and other natural problems like soil erosion. The risk of soil collapse is always real, and it can put your home at risk. It can also weaken it greatly. Therefore, you need to speak to a masonry contractor to have your Corona retaining wall set up properly.

Choosing Materials for your Retaining Wall

Concrete contractors can make retaining walls using stone, bricks, timber, and reinforced concrete. The choice of material will depend on your desired protection. Retaining walls can also be used to support terraced gardens as well as other similar structures. In most cases, steel sheet piling is used to create retaining walls. However, this depends on various factors, such as the kind of structure to be constructed and the prevailing conditions.

Your choice of material will affect the stability of your retaining wall. Some of the common applications of the different materials include:

Concrete and Lime Water

This is the right material if your retaining wall is to be constructed in an area that is prone to heavy rains, water, or dampness. When a retaining wall made of this mixture is exposed to moisture, it becomes stronger.

Stone and Boulders

These materials are commonly used to add beauty rather than functionality as they can make the area appear more pleasing. These can be hard to erect and will need an experienced concrete contractor if they are constructed properly.

Timber or Wood

While these materials are a great choice for a retaining wall because they are inexpensive to install, they require regular maintenance as they can rot and be spoilt by pests.

To decide the right material for your retaining wall, you will need to speak to a reliable and experienced masonry contractor.
