When repairing retaining walls, it is hard to find the right tools for the job. You spend time looking for products that will help to retain the repairs as you expect this job to be expensive. When looking for a product that will solve that issue, help the repairs last a lifetime, and protect your investments or your customers investment, wall anchors may be the best option for the job.
Wall anchors use long rods, that are typically driven through your retaining wall, they are then attached to the anchors that have been installed into the ground behind this wall. They are secured, and the plate is added, this will bring the wall back into the proper and desired position.
When trying to determine the best time to use wall anchors, you may notice the wall separating or leaning, losing soil, or other issues that show the soil/foundation is not secure. Wall anchors and helical piles are often a great way to restore the stability and integrity of your walls.
The three most common signs of a retaining wall in distress is:
The wall starts to crumble. When the concrete retaining wall begins to crumble, the concrete was probably not mixed properly initially, or is of a cheap quality that will not provide a long-term solution. The retaining wall that uses concrete should have steel rebar to handle the soil behind it, if this is missing or is of a low strength the wall will never be able to hold the soil properly and the wall will fail.
