Ensure your retaining wall will stand the test of time with sealing and maintenance

Concrete, like any building material, is susceptible to degradation over time. Rain, snow, temperature and contaminates are all a factor when it comes to the life of your concrete retaining walls. Sealing and maintaining concrete retaining walls will help them last much longer by preventing these elements from eroding or destroying the concrete.

Retaining walls are just as much of staple to your yards landscaping as any other concrete structure, so make sure they are maintained accordingly. Sealing and maintaining concrete retaining walls provides great looks as well as long-lasting preventative steps to prevent your retaining walls from degrading. We ensure that the concrete is properly prepped, sealed and maintained to keep it looking as great as the day it was built.

Our team takes into account the design of your retaining wall, as well as the function and location in your yard. We will use the proper materials to get an amazing finish, and we’re sure you’ll love the look of the concrete retaining wall for years to come.

Concrete retaining wall sealing is an intensive process if adequate results are to be achieved. First, the concrete retaining wall’s surface has to be meticulously power-washed and cleaned. This is because there has to be a clean surface for the sealer to function correctly. Second, the sealer is applied on the concrete. This step requires specific tools, patience, and professional knowledge in order to apply to correct amount of sealant to the surface. In fact, over-applying is just as harmful as under-applying the sealant. Finally, the sealant should have time to dry without being greatly disturbed. The process normally takes 24 hours.

The sealant on your concrete retaining wall will act as a protective coating. It prevents weather and temperature changes from harmfully reacting with your cement. Additionally, it keeps what could have been stains- such as oils and bird droppings – from encroaching into your cement. Finally and most importantly, the sealant significantly deceases water seepage into cement. This is extremely important because water is what accomplishes most of the damage. Embedded water droplets would freeze in the winter months causing the water molecules to expand. The added pressure would cause fracturing and cracks to form throughout the concrete – unless you have a sealant applied.
