Retaining Walls Installation and Construction in Los Angeles
Weinstein Retrofitting Systems are the Retaining Wall Experts! The Installation of Retaining Walls Has Never Been Easier!
Weinstein Retrofitting Systems has been installing and repairing retaining walls in Los Angeles, Sherman Oaks, Encino, Beverly Hills, Whittier, Long Beach, and Woodland Hills for thousands of homes in these cities and surrounding areas. We cover a wide range of applications and designs.
We save you the time, energy, and money on creating and installing a retaining wall because we have plans, techniques, and engineers who are ready to go and experienced crew members who are ready to install. We build up to code and our relationship with local building departments will always 100% of the time ensure a dedicated and easy process to achieve the results you are after. If the wall is less than 3′ in height, city permits will not be required.
There are many kinds and types of retaining walls, ranging from decorative garden walls to engineered retaining walls. You can even opt for a wood retaining wall. Retaining walls are commonly designed to hold back soil to prevent down-slope movement or erosion.
Retaining walls are constructed with reinforced concrete block or cast concrete or Shotcrete.
A Concrete Retaining Wall is constructed by using reinforced concrete blocks which are reinforced with steel or rebar and then filled with concrete. Also commonly known as “Pour and Place Retaining Walls.”
Case Study: Weinstein Retrofitting Systems recently designed and installed a retaining wall project beneath a home in Hollywood Hills in the basement area to retain the soil and protect the home from shifting due to soil erosion. This project was done per engineering design and per city plans and permits. All work was approved and finalized and our firm was complimented by the city inspector for going above and beyond on execution and final look.
We will be happy to come out to your property and give you a free inspection so we could let you know how much the retaining wall cost is going to be.
A Shotcrete retaining wall could be poured either plain smooth or with a desirable design that fits the surrounding area. Retaining walls exceeding 3 feet in height require an engineered plan and sometimes require a Geologic and Soils Report to determine the right specifications. Shotcrete Retaining Walls are dependent upon the need and will be specified in plans with proper reinforcing steel and then filled with concrete.
