Why It Matters to Hire a Pro for Retaining Walls
Retaining walls are a versatile outdoor design component for commercial and residential properties. Various kinds of retaining walls are possible, and they perform many functions. They can create entertaining spaces, improve the look of a yard, and establish curb appeal.
A well-installed retaining wall has a crucial role in supporting and upholding foundational elements around a yard or property, and they can last for years while looking beautiful.
But building a retaining wall correctly involves the right tools and a great deal of building experience. A poorly installed retaining wall can damage your property and end up costing you more money than if you’d hired a professional in the first place.
If you're considering installing your own retaining wall, here are some excellent reasons to consider working with Home Pro Transformations instead.
You’ll Save Time & Money
Often, people want to do home renovation projects on their own in order to save time, hassle, and money. But when it comes to retaining walls, you likely won’t save yourself any of this.
Instead, the process can be highly time-consuming. You’ll need to gather materials, make plans, and then actually build the wall. Many retaining walls involve excavation or build-up of soil, so the process isn’t simple.
All of these tools and materials also cost a lot of money. Professionals can often offer more affordable rates as they can buy products in bulk and have access to better materials.
You’ll Get the Right Drainage Set-Up
While retaining walls may seem like a simple building project, the behind the scenes construction is more complicated than you might think. Proper grading and a well-designed and installed drainage system need to be in place in order to help your landscaping thrive.
Without quality grading or drainage, your plants, shrubs, and trees may not survive or worse, the whole retaining wall may become compromised. Work with a professional to ensure the parts of the project that you don’t see are completed just as well as the parts that you do.
You’ll Prevent Landscaping Disasters
While some retaining walls are more ornamental, others are structural. If you want to create a tiered backyard or need a wall to prevent rainwater flooding, it needs to be set up the right away. Otherwise, the wall could crack, break, or crumble.
You could end up with flooding and other major landscaping issues. So, it’s just not worth the risk of installing your own retaining wall unless you have a lot of hands-on experience.
