We are concrete construction experts and we have both the knowledge and the skills to build sturdy retaining walls that last. Constructing a retaining wall that does the job right is no laughing matter. There are a few things that need to be considered such as the type of soil or ground that we are working with, the amount of soil that needs to be retained, the forces acting on the retaining wall, the depth and type of foundation that needs to be put in place as well as the overall aesthetics of the finished product. By going with UC Concrete and Masonry, you don’t have to worry about any of this stuff; we will take care of them for you.

Why a Retaining Wall

There are a few reasons why clients may want to build a concrete retaining wall. The most common of which is that the retaining wall will provide stability to the land or the wall itself might become an integral, possibly weight-bearing part to an even bigger structure such as some stairs, a sunken patio, a garden, a poolside, a parking space or even a perimeter fence. 

There is more to building a retaining wall than just putting up the wall itself. It’s a complex process that takes everything into consideration. The soil and the ground that’s being “retained” will be analyzed to know just what type of material can be used to build the retaining wall of your dreams.

Constructing a Retaining Wall

Retaining walls in Union City may be made out of various construction materials. There are walls made of stones. Some can be built out of brick and mortar. Then, there are walls that are made entirely out of concrete. 

You may have your heart set on a look achieved with the use of a particular material, but we still have to evaluate the feasibility of using such materials before we go ahead and start with the project. When you contact our team, we’ll guide you step by step as to which one would perform the best in your particular situation.  

If you already have a wall that has fallen into disrepair, then don’t hesitate to contact us at (510) 399-0249. Not only are we good at making new walls but we are also proud of our capabilities to retrofit existing walls to make them whole again, strengthen them, and to improve their integrity.
