Concrete Retaining Wall Surrey
Concrete Retaining Wall Installation
At some point, you’re going to have to choose what form of concrete you want to use! For example, you’ll need to ensure that a wall isn’t designed with major curbs if you choose to use large concrete blocks. The job site will need appropriate space is large blocks are used as equipment will be needed to transport the blocks. Smaller blocks have much more flexibility with design options as you are able to make tighter shapes with the smaller blocks. You have much more freedom with the job site as well as transporting smaller blocks is much easier than the larger ones.
The last option is the most expensive one: To have the retaining wall completely poured. However, the advantage will be that you’ll have the greatest freedom and flexibility in design as well as more finishes, colors and textures to choose from. In addition, it can be reinforced, making the wall even stronger. With a poured-form wall, the concrete might even be able to approximate materials like brick or stone.
In BC, all retaining walls higher than 4 feet require a permit. The application process will take time and money and be a hassle. You’ll also need to get a professional engineer to do a drawing, which will cost you more, make things more complicated, and feel like a downright headache.
