Our experts are always ready to guide you on the matter. Here at Rockledge, and in the South Patrick Shores, Cocoa, Cape Canaveral, Satellite Beach, and Titusville, we have installed retaining walls that have withstood harsh conditions and the test of time.
Our clients in Cocoa Beach, Port Saint John, Merritt Island, Indian Harbor Beach, and West Melbourne have trusted us to build the best retaining walls. As we have a deep understanding of the materials used and the engineering behind these walls, we make sure that they are as resilient as they can be.
Do Materials Matter?Yes, they do. It's the combination of skill and materials that leads to a good, solid retaining wall. For example, if you've used the best materials but have hired a mason who doesn't know what he's doing, it's very likely that the retaining wall wouldn't last for a very long time. Similarly, no matter how skilled the mason is, if the tools aren't right, the wall isn't going to be resilient.
That's why we consider the material used to be an essential part of the retaining wall design. Here are the common materials used in such walls.
- CMU - Concrete masonry units are some of the most common materials used in modern retaining walls. CMUs are very convenient and aren't as vulnerable as poured concrete walls. Usually stone veneers are applied on the CMUs to make the walls look appealing.
- Concrete Blocks - These are much more resilient that CMUs. They're smaller and less prone to develop cracks and vulnerabilities. These blocks come in different shapes and sizes. They often appear to look like natural stone or brick. This is a very popular choice. Our skilled masons know how to install these blocks carefully to ensure that the wall is solid and won't give-in to the pressure.
- Brick - Brick retaining walls look very beautiful, especially if your property has traditional design and architecture. These walls are also easy to maintain and resilient. The only real disadvantage of brick is the limitation in color and design. Brick walls are also take a long time to build.
Other materials used are stone, poured concrete, even wood. Our designers are always willing and ready to advise you on the best material choices. They will also survey your landscape to understand just what kind of retaining wall you might need.
