Repairing Retaining and Sea Walls
Ram Jack New England is not only a Cape Cod Foundation Repair specialist but also an expert at repairing retaining walls and sea walls. There are many of these walls in and around Cape Cod that need repairing.
On house lots with a slope some retaining walls will experience leaning, cracking or buckling. The solution to this problem is usually a combination of installing Helical Wall Tie back Anchors along with improving on the drainage in the area of the retaining wall.
Proper drainage at the base of the retaining walls will help keep water pressure and expanding clays from applying soil pressure against the retaining wall. This is usually accomplished by installing a 4″ PVC pipe with perforations in it surrounded by 3/4″ clean crushed stone or river rock.
As far as sea walls, there are many that are in need of repair throughout Cape Cod. These walls experience all types of conditions and need many times to be supported with Helical Wall Tie Back Anchors and large wall plates. In some cases a sea wall may need to be demolished and a new one installed with proper drainage and landscaping done.
