Retaining Walls For Builders
Some of the most important elements of a project’s foundation are the retaining walls. Retaining walls hold back soil and aggregate and prevent them from pushing against the base of the structure. Without them, a house or other property can experience significant damages in areas with expansive soils. Even in areas without such issues, temporary retaining walls for land development often are necessary because they allow builders to excavate and work safely.
Whether they need them temporarily or on a permanent basis, contractors throughout North and South Carolina can turn to Foundation Repair Services to provide expert help for retaining walls for construction.

Types of Retaining Walls
We offer many types of solutions to provide support for contractors during the excavation and construction phases. Soldier piles and lagging walls are common temporary solutions and fit many soil types and excavations. These solutions are constructed by installing vertical beams from the original grade before excavation begins. As it is performed, timber lagging is installed between the piles to restrain the earth.
We have more experience with these types of retention solutions than practically anyone else in the region. As such, we have the ability to select the most appropriate option to help builders get the job done right.
Here are a few examples of the type of techniques we can bring to any jobsite:
- Helical tiebacks: These anchors are screwed into the ground behind a wall, and then attached to it with a special plate.
- Driven tiebacks: Rather than being screwed into the earth, driven tiebacks are forced into the soil like nails, and then connected to plates.
- Soldier pile and lagging walls: Pile walls consist of steel beams pounded into the ground with lagging in between the beams typically consisting of steel, timber or concrete to help hold everything in place.
- Soil nail walls: By inserting long, tension-resistant metal bars into the earth, we can reinforce the excavation site and prevent collapses.
- Grouted anchor walls: This technique includes pumping anchor holes full of grout to prevent slippage and provide additional support
