Failing Concrete Retaining Walls
If your concrete retaining wall is showing signs of failure (e.g. tilting walls, wall separation, and cracked or crumbling walls) then, it’s time to take action! There are a number of ways to fix failing retaining walls, but it can be a difficult task, even for the DIY type. Some ways are to use a wall anchor system or helical anchor system to bring walls back to an upright and stable position. You can find a more detailed tutorial here. If the damage is bad enough, you may have to rebuild your retaining wall. For more information or to get a quote, call the concrete contractors of RGS Contracting today!
Repairing Cracks and Holes
Whether it’s for a concrete driveway, concrete stairs or a concrete retaining wall, Stucco is a great material to repair damage. If your concrete has a crack or hole, it’s important to seal it from water to prevent further deterioration. Stucco dries quickly and can be tooled to match the surrounding surface, making your concrete look as good as new. Here’s how you can repair your concrete with some Stucco and a caulk gun. If the cracks or holes are beyond simple repair, be sure to contact Eugene’s concrete contractors, RGS Contracting!
