Concrete is a strong and durable material, capable of supporting plenty of imposed force. It is highly resistant against most things and it is very difficult to move. For this reason, concrete is the ideal material for supporting various different structures. Concrete filled block work retaining walls are ideal for retaining large amounts of earth and adding structure to your property. You can do much in the way of shaping the surrounding terrain by using these. In addition, when used for foundations and footings, concrete is capable of holding up much more heavy structures, such as large buildings or entire pathways. Whatever your application, ensure that it is integrally sound and built to last, through using the quality assured materials at Pro Concrete Port Macquarie.
Concrete Filled Block Retaining Walls
Retaining walls are strong concrete walls that work by supporting heavy spaces of earth. They are a key element in shaping and designing a garden to the varied and specific levels that you require. Providing lateral support for the backfill soil creates a stable structure which would be capable of supporting plenty more weight. Since these are often entirely visibly you may want to consider concrete filled block work or structural timber retaining walls. Our project manger will work with his team and with their skills, techniques and texturing products we will create a wall which is not only structurally sound but also aesthetically pleasing.
Timber Retaining Walls
Timber retaining walls are some of the most common styles of household retaining. They offer a strong and stable basis for any residential yard, something that has been proven time and time again. In addition, it is a much more cost-effective solution than concrete filled block work retaining walls, making it the most viable option for a majority of people. Retaining walls can be built in many different ways. They can be built out of treated pine, typically for walls 1.5 meters high or less The other option is build the wall out of seasoned hardwood which when designed by an engineer can be built up to 4.0 meters high. Whatever your choice, you should always employ experienced professionals with proficient designing and building skills.
Concrete footings are the very base of all foundations, deeply embedding the structure into the earth, to better its integrity. They are absolutely vital in the overall structure in order to ensure the building is structurally sound. Usually the footings will be constructed with additional support, so to make the sturdiest base for the property. Concrete footings are particularly important in areas with poor soil, as a whole they are the perfect protection against settling and sinking. For the integrity of your large structure Pro Concrete Port Macquarie offer footings with superior strength to support your asset.
