Collapsing Retaining Wall Repair

We have a team of trained, knowledgeable, and professional foundation repair experts who will be able to take care of your retaining wall problem. Retaining walls are used to retain lateral pressure of soil. These walls are often made out of concrete, steel, brick, wood, stone, and other materials. They are commonly found at homes all over the tri-state area. Often times, when you have a weak, unstable soil problem, or hydrostatic pressure in the soil, your retaining walls will shift around and can appear as if they are actually falling in on themselves.
Warning signs that foundation settlement has caused you to have collapsing retaining walls:
- Tilting, bowed retaining walls
- Separation of the retaining walls to adjacent walls
- Forward movement of the retaining wall
- Buckling or cracks found with the walls
- Rotted and decaying wooden materials

Collapsing Retaining Wall Repair
To take care of collapsing retaining wall repair, we can install a series of wall anchors which will help to push the wall back to where it needs to be. These wall anchors can make sloped areas on your property usable by creating room and level space for sidewalks, driveways, gardens, patios, and more. These retaining walls are also common along roads, parking lots, and even around bodies of water. Also, by definition, basement walls are actually retaining walls. So, if you have bowed basement walls, we can take care of this problem as well with our durable, effective wall anchors!
Identifying Retaining Wall Failure
Identifying retaining wall failure is not difficult since the warning signs are pretty obvious. Regardless of what has caused the collapsing retaining wall, we will be sure to take care of the cause of the problem and the damage which it caused.
At Bix Basement Systems, can take care of:
- Collapsing/tilting retaining walls
- Retaining walls separating from adjacent walls
- Crumbling and falling apart retaining walls
Collapsing Retaining Walls Solutions
We provide foundation support tactics for homeowners with collapsing retaining walls. When you have collapsing walls we recommend having wall anchors and helical tiebacks installed to help restore the strength and stability of the entire wall. Both of the wall repair techniques will make use of a durable, high-quality steel wall bracket which will be attached to the retaining wall brace to help distribute the anchor’s clamping pressure.
Each collapsing retaining wall solution will help to return the wall back to its original position to improve its appearance and its structural integrity. The wall anchors we install will feature a rod which is driven into small holes in the retaining wall itself. These rods will be attached to an earth anchor which is placed in the appropriate place outside of the soil surrounding your retaining wall. These wall anchors will be able to be tightened over time to help straighten your retaining wall.
Wall anchors are a much more affordable solution than replacing the retaining wall. Wall anchors can be installed quickly, whereas total retaining wall replacement will take many hours of labor and will cost a lot of money.
We offer professional, affordable retaining wall repair services from knowledgeable employees who have been trained in the proper ways to install wall anchors with retaining walls. We guarantee that you will be pleased with our installation services, and with our clean up work. We guarantee to leave your home and yard looking as great as it did when we first showed up!
