Retaining walls

Retaining walls exist in most properties on the Northern Beaches and North Shore due to the sloping lands and rocky geology. Commonly, the majority of old retaining walls weren’t built with longevity in mind.

 

At Retaining Wall Constructions, we build and repair retaining walls based on typical engineering principals, using high quality and durable materials with a long term design life in mind. Retaining Walls often protect your #1 asset, your house, so when you contract us to fix, or build your wall, you are ensuring you don’t have to build it again.


Get in touch with us  to organise an inspection with expert advice.


We specialise in all forms of retaining, ranging from basic garden walls to complex, difficult access engineered retaining walls, in which we can design and construct with the option of engineering sign off to meet your requirements.
