Alternative to Poured Concrete Retaining Walls: Introducing Redi-Rock


You’re a problem solver. So the last thing you want is for your retaining wall solution to create problems on a project. Poured concrete walls (also known as cast-in-place walls) are a common retaining wall option, but these walls can pose a number of issues such as cracking, bowing, and labor intensive installation. They also cost more than block retaining wall alternatives, with skyrocketing prices when textures, tiers, or curves are required.

If you’re looking for an alternative to poured concrete for your next retaining wall - Redi-Rock can help.

With Redi-Rock, just one crew is required to install your retaining wall, making for a simpler construction sequence than a poured retaining wall that requires multiple trades. Redi-Rock walls also require a smaller footprint than a poured retaining wall in most cases.

Durable

You need a retaining wall you can trust. While cracks and drainage problems commonly affect cast-in-place walls, Redi-Rock walls are flexible so settlement or freeze thaw impacts are minimized. Redi-Rock walls are also permeable, allowing hydrostatic pressure to drain efficiently.
