What a Retaining Wall Can Save You This Winter

Posted on September 26, 2017

We’re still trying to wrap our brains around the fact that summer is over and fall is on its way in. With that, we are also preparing for the winter season, and there are so many improvements you can make to your home before the cold sets in for good- and we’re not just talking about landscaping chores on every Wellesley and Needham homeowner’s list. Retaining walls can be a great investment, and our experts can think of a few ways it will save you this winter:

It will save you from soil erosion.

Stone retaining walls are designed to help keep your soil in place and minimize the chance of runoff that often happens after rain or melting snow. This investment is both a functional and aesthetic benefit and can prevent extra spending in the spring to fix sinkholes, grassless areas, and more.

Also, it prevents water destruction.

If water is unable to drain away from your home properly, you could find water damage becoming a serious problem in your basement, underneath siding, and in other similar areas. Retaining walls create an ideal and invisible way to drain excess water.

Most importantly, it minimizes the chance of structural damage.

Due to both erosion and water damage, the structural integrity of your home could be compromised. Retaining walls are the perfect solution for a variety of foundation problems related to the level of your property and water. Taking action now could save you thousands upon thousands of dollars down the road.
