Concrete isn’t a topic that most people get too excited about, however, concrete is an important part of your home. When it gets cracked or flakes off, it looks unsightly but it can also create hazards that can cause a problem for anyone who has to walk or move around your home.
The best way to maintain the area around your home from soil erosion is to build a retaining wall. Retaining walls can be used to maintain the integrity of your landscape and prevent structural damage, as well as bring an enhanced look to the exterior of your home or community. Eco Concrete Company will make sure you have the best option based on your needs.
Benefits of Poured Retaining Walls
At Eco Concrete, we are committed to quality and adherence to specifications. Our poured walls are engineered to provide lasting strength and durability.
The compressive and flexural stability of poured walls is greater than block walls, which need steel reinforcements to achieve the same strength. Their strength also measures far beyond the required safety factor.
Due to their increased strength, density, and joint-free construction, poured walls help maintain drier basements. That means they also offer exceptional mold-resistance.
Concrete has the highest fire rating of all construction materials, but not all concrete walls offer equal protection. The solid construction of a poured wall supplies at least twice as much protection against fire as a wall made of hollow concrete blocks.
Poured walls offer the ultimate design flexibility for architects and contractors, because they start as a liquid. Other materials, such as concrete blocks, are not capable of being manipulated into any shape.
Poured walls require little to no maintenance. They are resistant to pests, rot, fire, water, and other elements. The most upkeep that will need to met is occasional painting and sealing; the frequency depends on the humidity levels of the building location.
