Lexington Retaining Wall Repair Experts
You might think that the only solution is to replace the retaining wall, but our team has other less costly and disruptive solutions. Our Lexington retaining wall repair experts will utilize either wall or helical anchors to repair the wall. Both of these methods use an anchor system that will extend out to hard-pack, stable soil. Not only will both of these methods stabilize the wall, our goal is to bring the structure back to the original position. The wall anchor system is more cost efficient, and can be used when there is sufficient room to be able to auger down to the stable soil. When this is not a possibility or when rocky soil is a problem, a helical anchor system can be used. Our Lexington retaining wall repair professionals will recommend the best solution for your unique situation.
When you notice damage to your retaining wall, it is very important to address it as soon as possible.
