Block Retaining Walls
Whether you are enclosing an area in a garden or retaining a 10 foot drop-off, block retaining walls are typically the strongest and most versatile when built properly. These segmental retaining walls comprise of interlocking pre-cast concrete units to hold back the load of the soil. Similar to gravity walls, they use the force of gravity to resist overturn and sliding. They come in many styles, shapes, and colors and are easy to make custom bends and steps for a functional, yet elegant design. Unfortunately, block retaining walls are prone to failure over time in frost-heaving environments such as Alaska. During the winter season, variations in temperature cause water to freeze and unfreeze causing soils to expand and compact. This leads to movement behind retaining walls. For this reason, modular block retaining walls require engineering such as drainage systems, geogrid soil reinforcement, and certified installers to ensure your wall lasts for years to come. This is the number one product of other installers in Anchorage, Alaska that we are consistently called out to fix.
