Retaining Walls Des Moines

Finding a decent retaining wall in Des Moines may not be the first thing you’re thinking, but someone that knows their way around concrete can be worth its weight in gold if you are a home or business owner.
Concrete retaining walls really do serve a very practical as well as attractive purpose. If done right, you’ll have a nice wall that serves the purpose of helping the slope of your lawn, as well as something that can provide a bit of separation between two points of your property.
That said, retaining walls aren’t all done the same. Not only are there different styles to consider when you’re getting a wall done, but you’re also hopefully picking the right concrete contractor in Des Moines to assure that you’re not calling up another to fix their mistakes. Adding color to concrete can dramatically change its look.
Fortunately with us and our team, you will have the assurance that it’s done with the right materials, expertise, and it won’t break the bank.

Retaining Wall Benefits

There are more benefits to a concrete retaining wall than what you may reasonably expect. Of course, some of these benefits are steeped in functionality, so it should always be said that the practical use of the retaining wall and it’s in our best interest to keep that at the forefront.
Here are some of the biggest benefits of installing a retaining wall on your property.
Functionality. As stated, you want to make sure that your lawn is in its best shape and a retaining wall assists in that through keeping soil level and in place. It also prevents water drainage in your yard. Through making your landscape level, you have the opportunity to make it more beautiful. This keeps you from spending money that you’d spend in repair in the future.
Beauty. Retaining walls done by a trusted Des Moines concrete contractor can really be a benefit on the aesthetic side of things. We use a variety of different stones, shapes, and colors to assure that it’s a truly unique piece. While retaining walls aren’t generally considered art, they can if they’re done right - and still be functional. 
Easy Care. Like many concrete products, if properly installed, you don’t have to worry about doing much maintenance. Sure, you may want to do things like spraying it down, but outside of just making sure the pipes aren’t clogged - you don’t have to worry a lot about it. This is especially important if rain is approaching.
Increase Property Value. After a decent home improvement project (again, if it’s done right) will increase your property value to some degree, and the same can be said for retaining walls. A beautiful retaining wall will increase curb appeal. After all, a retaining wall does serve a pretty specific purpose, so new homeowners will eventually have to install one if they consider themselves interested in any particular landscaping projects.

Variety of Retaining Wall Options

What we also appreciate about retaining walls is not just the actual types of retaining walls you can have, but also you will have a say in what kind of wall it is. For example, stone retaining walls aren’t the same as masonry retaining walls. It depends on what exactly you’re going to do and where they’re going to be on your particular property. 

Retaining Wall Repairs

As you’d probably be able to expect, retaining walls can always be repaired. The reason why they’re damaged could be for a number of reasons. For example, retaining walls may have to be repaired because of some drainage issues, the wall can be cracked at various points, or a combination of those two things and any others. The reasons why could be poor installation, material, or also both of those things.
Should this be something that you’re dealing with, you’re going to need someone who will fortify the wall and assure that you don’t have the same problem again.
