Do you currently have a retaining wall or are thinking of having one installed? If so, you likely added it to avoid sinkholes in your yard or to prevent flooding. The way that your retaining wall is built and installed will ultimately determine whether the foundation will be compromised or not. You could start to experience a foundation issue if the wall was not installed on a level ground and where there is improper drainage. It is for these reasons that it is so important to know who you are hiring for the job. To ensure that the retaining wall is built and installed properly, call on Atascocita Foundation Repair Experts.
When there is improper drainage just beyond your retaining wall, water will start to cause hydrostatic pressure. When you do not have a good retaining wall it will begin to crack, buckle and shift. This can lead to other problems that will also need to be addressed. It isn’t uncommon to experience drainage issues. However, the problem is that when someone starts to experience the problem they often simply ignore it, assuming it will go away on its own. Eventually, the foundation will no longer hold up the wall and it will need to be rebuilt and installed.
