Luckily if you are wondering when to fix or remove your retaining wall, there are many things to look out for. First, see what the material is as the many different types look and respond different to the environment. Check to see if there is any soil that has built up due to pressure or vegetation. Look for roots as well. If it’s made of wood, look for rot as wood will rot after a few years.
- Look at the material of the wall and how it’s set to determine if you need to change it.
- Check the soil. If there’s pressure or water damage it’s time to change it.
- Look for defects, cracks and the sort in the material. Also look for vegetation.
“Regardless of the reasons why retaining walls are installed, the bottom line is they aren’t cheap to build from scratch.”
