Engineers typically design retaining walls with a safety factor, or how much stronger a system is than it needs to be for an intended load. When that system falls through, you may need us for Phoenix retaining wall repair services. A safety factor of 1.5 to 2.5 is acceptable in most designs, but sometimes mother nature has other plans. The main driving force that can cause a retaining wall to slide is the lateral earth pressure from the soils and surcharge.
Our Phoenix retaining wall repair specialists can stabilize and repair a wall with tie-back anchors that are installed through a borehole in the wall and anchored into the competent, native strata behind the retaining wall. In some of our projects, we’ve hydraulically driven anchors as much as 100 feet to find competent soils.
