Concrete retaining walls

Typical 60 year old house. It’s very well taken care of but with a problem in the rear of the lot.

Emergency city repairs destroyed a portion of this retaining wall.

In this project, the footing is close to the surface so insulation is being added to give the retaining wall frost protection.

The back of the retaining wall is damp proofed and wrapped for better drainage. Weeping tile is also installed and gravel added.

The weeping tile drains water away from the retaining wall area to minimize lateral pressures.

The retaining wall is ready to be backfilled.

Retaining wall project completed.
