In 2012, the owners of this beautiful Aspen, Colorado estate were faced with the very difficult task of repairing failed MSE retaining walls along the driveway that provides primary access to their 21,000 square foot (1951 square meter) home.
"Even a simple repair of the MSE block walls would have required massive excavation in order to reinstall the required geogrid under the driveway," the owner explained. "We examined virtually every possible approach to repairing or replacing the failed walls."
The search for a better solution eventually led the owner to Redi-Rock®. "The Redi-Rock wall was a fabulous solution on all accounts to a tough challenge: aesthetically, economically, and with regard to ease of installation," the owner explained.
Let's take a look at how Redi-Rock, from local Redi-Rock manufacturer Signature Stone, ticked all the boxes for this project:
"We completed the demolition and installation of the Redi-Rock wall in 23 days, far less time than anticipated and saving the client tens of thousands of dollars in winter conditions, equipment, and labor fees," explained Larry Custodio, President of Village Excavating, Inc.
The owner added: "The Redi-Rock wall provided an answer that allowed us to minimize the required excavation work at a fraction of the cost of other wall solutions. As a bonus, it looks outstanding and is a significant aesthetic upgrade from the prior MSE block walls. I could not be happier with the results."
