Retaining Wall in Oakland

From Piedmont to Oakland and beyond, Green Valley Structural Inc has been building and repairing high quality retaining walls with drainage for design professionals all over the East Bay.  As a local retaining wall contractor we understand all the city and county codes required to build a quality retaining wall that will last for years.  It all starts with a quality engineered system and our own design team can provide a solid plan set should you not have your own engineer.

Retaining walls can look nice from the front but if you don’t pay serious attention to what goes on behind and below the retaining wall, you could be in for a nasty surprise. A poorly built wall can separate, lean, or even topple causing massive property damage and all because the proper drainage system isn’t installed.  We use a triple layered system:

  • Waterproof membrane
  • Mira-drain filter fabric
  • Drain Rock and sub-drain

Whether you require a new wall or a repair to an existing wall system let Green Valley Structural Inc take care of your retaining wall needs.

Why Get a Retaining Wall?

There are a few different reasons why Oakland homeowners may choose to get a retaining wall. Erosion is often a major deciding factor, because a wall can stop soil movement in its path. If you live on a particularly steep plot of land, or have been noticing soil creep recently, a retaining wall could be a good decision.

The other primary reason is purely decorative; there are a few different materials we usually use to build the wall, giving you plenty of opportunities to customize your new wall, creating something that is as beautiful as it is useful.
