Retaining Wall Construction Services for Palm Beach Residents
Building walls for all commercial and residential owners can prove to be a challenge when you don’t understand their needs and what is required in terms of hardscaping and hence, aesthetics to ensure the design meets all conditions and preferences while the retaining wall fulfills its purpose. Retaining Wall Pros of Palm Beach can help you with all your projects regarding retaining wall construction and we will go over the details to make sure you’re more than happy with the final result.
Going over the project and process can be tiresome for some people as it is necessary to consider the best type of wall to retain the soil in the land or property and how it will help with the functional part of building a retaining wall in the first place.
Then, the hardscape looks and aesthetical part comes to play and it is when you will think about the type of retaining wall based on how it will look at the end of the day.
Of course, it is possible to use retaining walls for aesthetical purposes only. If you look at some parks and squares, you will notice that some plants or trees are planted in specific areas that were created with the use of retaining walls to hold the soil in place and make sure it wouldn’t take part in the pathways and areas where people can walk and sit to spend some time. This is entirely for hardscape purposes, even when, in the long run, it meets a functional purpose.
You get to create different spaces in the property or lawn based on how you use the retaining walls to design them, but it isn’t meant to deal with part of the soil or problems like water that is filtrating or causing erosion, like with other properties and situations.
As expected, there’s a lot to consider during this choice and retaining wall construction process, so our role as professionals with over 19 years of experience in the industry is to help you achieve the desired result based on your needs and expectations.
How Our Retaining Wall Construction Works
Having a closer look at how we like to work with you and our clients, we will go over the different steps and how this entire journey will get started:
1. Contact our team to request the service.
The client is always the first to take the initiative as we need to know about you and why you contact us as professionals in building those walls. We’d love to hear more about you and understand how we can help you so we can move on with the next steps of the process.
2. Scheduling a visit to your property or, in the worst case, requesting some details and specific information.
Ideally, we want our team to be able to assess your space and see how you want your retaining walls built and why you need them. It is always better to have a good look at what the terrain looks like and come up with a different design from there when also having the dimensions and measurements. This is why we prefer scheduling the first visit for assessment, which is completely free, and from there, you and our team make decisions such as the type of wall, budget, prices, design, and more.
However, if you are unable to schedule a visit, or maybe you just want an estimate to have a good idea of how much you'll need to spend before compromising—although our first and free visit doesn't compromise you AT ALL—you can send a few pictures or provide as much detailed information about your property and where you need the retaining wall as possible. Size, type, and reasons for having it are part of the details that allow us to give you an estimate.
3. Choosing the type of retaining wall and designing it.
During the estimation, we will usually make this decision, but clients usually want to change their minds or have a deeper conversation about what options are better for their spaces. Thus, we want to take the time to choose the type and make the design when you finally allow us to see the space and provide a close look at how the final result will look like and see if you're happy with it before you decide to have us as the experts building the wall.
Of course, this process of choosing and designing the type of retaining wall can also be part of the finishing step. In other words, if you decide to have us and we have already visited your property, we will just polish the samples and provide the final plan for the project to get started.
4. Organize the labor plan and how our team will work with your retaining wall construction project.
Once everything is approved, and all decisions have been made, we will schedule the time when our team will go to your property and get the installation done. We know not all clients and people have the same availability, or maybe their neighborhoods set different labor hours. We will fit our schedule to this and provide the timeframe once you give us the number of hours we are allowed to work during the day.
5. Finally, start the construction.
With everything clear and organized, we will begin building your retaining wall and finish it in the estimated time or even sooner when possible.
What’s The Best Type of Retaining Wall?
If you’re trying to figure out which one is the best so you can come up with a type and design once contacting us, we’re confident you will hit a wall—figuratively—a couple of times.
Retaining walls are built and designed based on your needs, landscape design, and budget. This means there can be some that are better than others, but it all depends on how you want the whole result to come out.
Now, if it comes to how durable or long-lasting they are, concrete and masonry retaining walls are known for being strong and the most durable walls among the options available, while poured concrete walls are known for being the cheapest ones.
In our opinion, masonry walls are great alternatives, but so are stone walls when it comes to finding a balance between hardscaping and dealing with soil erosion and water drainage.
