Poured walls are made from reinforced concrete and are an integral part of the foundations and basement areas of homes. Any type of retaining wall has the primary purpose of holding back soil. These structures have to be carefully designed to ensure that they'll last a lifetime without being vulnerable to water damage or giving in to pressure from the soil.
Concrete is what our business is built around, and we pride ourselves on building the best concrete poured retaining walls in the industry.
Basement Installation Experts
Basements are kept intact by using poured concrete walls to prevent displaced soil from falling in on the excavated area. Due to the immense pressure created by the surrounding soil, these structures have to be thick and properly reinforced.
Thickness requirements can depend on factors such as:
The water content of the soil (wetter climates usually need thicker walls)
Reactivity, e.g. if local soil is especially acidic
Other variable lateral earth pressures such as the angle of internal friction in sandy environments
Poor workmanship can easily lead to walls cracking or sliding, which happens when the structure hasn't been adequately secured in place. Chooseing a provider that knows how to reinforce retaining walls in a basement is the difference between a safe, damp-free basement room that lasts a lifetime and a cave-in that could undermine your home's integrity.
Our work prioritizes durability and structural quality over all else. Call us to learn more about how basement retaining walls work and to schedule service.
Concrete Foundation Work
The foundation of a home is built using poured walls like a basement. While the space doesn't need to be livable in these cases, the purpose of holding back soil is the same. A home's foundation needs to resist the pressure of the land to keep the building stable, so poured reinforced concrete is a popular material for this purpose.
Laying the foundations of outhouses is equally important. Any structure needs a sturdy foundation if it's meant to last, and building to last is exactly what we do. If you have a building project in mind that requires poured concrete foundations, we'd love to make sure the job is done right. We'll visit your property and design retaining walls that secure your foundation.
MODULAR BLOCK RETAINING WALLS
All Types Offered
Modular block systems (also known as segmental retaining walls) are constructed using interlocking blocks to create a boundary that is extremely effective at holding back soil but is also very attractive to look at and resilient to damage. These are used in private yards and gardens as well as public spaces and may serve a practical purpose or simply be a pleasant border to a path or green area.

Segmental Retaining Walls in Gardens
Segmental retaining walls are used in gardens for applications such as:
Creating a raised planting area
Lining a path
Creating a border between your yard and a neighbor's
They can be constructed without the use of mortar, which makes them incredibly resilient to common problems such as insect damage and damage from freezing water. There are also many design options for the type of block used — this makes them attractive to homeowners because they can be personalized to suit your yard's aesthetics.
Whatever purpose you have in mind, whether it's practical or purely ornamental, get in touch to discover what we can offer you.
Advantages of Modular Block Retaining Walls
Some major advantages of this type of wall include:
Easy to construct. When mortar isn't used, it speeds the process up dramatically. This saves you money on the cost of materials as well as the cost of labor hours, and it enables us to offer these systems at very reasonable prices.
Durable. These borders are resilient to extreme heat and cold and are less prone to cracking due to sudden temperature changes. This makes them ideal for a diverse range of climates.
Attractive. The classic appearance of these systems can't be understated. You can also choose from a wide array of design options.
Sturdy. The interlocking system is very effective at holding back soil, which is the primary purpose of these features.
