Is Winter a Good Time to Install a Retaining Wall?

With winter in Pittsburgh arriving soon, there are a variety of things you need to do to prepare your home. It is essential to inspect your home, plumbing system, and your electrical system to ensure they can withstand the cold temperatures. It is also recommended to install a retaining wall before the winter season is in full swing.

Having a retaining wall installed in early winter can provide a variety of benefits to Pittsburgh homeowners, including:

Protect Plants from Harsh Winter Winds

Windy winters are typical in Pittsburgh. Wind can kill off plants and damage your property in several ways. By installing a retaining wall, you can protect your patio, flower beds, and evergreen plants. A retaining wall can also serve a windbreaker to help with winter patio maintenance.

Prevent Soil Erosion

With rain and melting snow, soil erosion is a common problem throughout the winter season. Retaining walls, in conjunction with an effective drainage system, can be used to prevent soil erosion. Our professional team will design your drainage system and retaining all to ensure it effectively protect against water damage and erosion.

Manage Effects of Temperature Fluctuations

As you may already know, Pittsburgh winters have temperature fluctuations that cause a lot of melting and refreezing of snow and rain. All this moisture seeps into the concrete of your foundation, and as it freezes, it expands, which can cause the concrete to crack. By using high-quality, dense material for your retaining wall, you can avoid the risk of cracking.
