Frequently Asked Questions
The price for a retaining wall can vary greatly depending on many factors such as the length, the height, and the type of material it is built from. Also the amount of preparation work required can be a factor as well, if a lot of excavation work or removal of an existing wall is required this can increase the price too. Cheaper retaining walls are built from pine and a more expensive option would be concrete blocks or stones. To give some rough figures, a small retaining wall could be $1,000, whereas a large one build from high quality materials could be $10,000 or more. Due to all the variables it would be best to get a custom quote.
This can vary a lot due to many of the factors mentioned above. The length, the height, the materials and also the amount of preparation work involved can all impact the time it will take to build. We also need to consider bad weather which can slow the process down. So a rough figure would be anywhere from a day for a small, pine wall, up to several weeks for a larger, terraced retaining wall built of stone.
Assuming a retaining wall is built using the correct methods, has proper drainage systems in place, and the materials weren’t cheap, you can get several decades out of most walls, the type of material use though will play the biggest part here. For example a timber wall could last up to 20 years, whereas a stone or brick wall could last up to 100 years, but it will obviously depend on your budget and needs.
