Potential Fix 1

This type of falling wall is perfect for our fix-up method because it is strong, but lacking adequate horizontal support, however the broken block section is not salvageable.

Potential Fix 2

This type of falling wall will need some crack-patching after our permanent repair because of the missing material.

Potential Fix 3

The far wall can be restored, the near wall could be up-righted and both repairs would be permanent.

Unfit for T.T.T Process 1

Our T.T.T process cannot fix this type of wall because it lacks cohesion and is of unit masonry construction.



PERMANENT UP-RIGHTING of your failing concrete retaining wall, made FAST, CHEAP-N-EASY with the new D.I.Y. 'TRENCH, TORQUE, AND TIE' CIVIL ENGINEER-DESIGNED REPAIR METHOD.  A forty ft. long, five ft. high reinforced concrete retaining wall demolition and replacement cost would approach $10,000.  Yet, this permanent and  innovative repair method is but a $600 D.I.Y. project.  And the total "how to do it" fee to the homeowner (including individual consultation) is only $90!    

This novel process uses a one-day rental of a ditching-trencher and a roto-hammer concrete drill to minimize  the 'grunt' work, and can be performed by one person.  Included in the instructive  'Action Packet' are lists of all job-required Materials, Supplies, Rental tools, Hand tools, Steel hardware and supply sources.  Four engineering drawings define and detail each phase of the job from layout to final clean-up. 

The Civil Engineer Designed 'Action Packet'  includes step-by-step instructions guiding the D.I.Y. homeowner though the four phases of the entire project.  These phases are:

  1. Worker Safety-strut and Temporary Bracing.

  2. Tension-rod Trenching Lay-out and Staking.

  3. Poured-in-place Field Anchors and Poured Concrete Field Splices.

  4. Torque process to Up-right the Tilting wall  (Without cracking).

But the D.I.Y. is not left without expert help and advice on any site-specific questions or complex job problems. Included in 'Trench, Torque, and Tie'  wall repair method's $90 fee is immediate and free technical advice and consultation service by both E-mail and telephone.  We have ourselves done this 'hands-on' concrete wall up-righting repair work in the field.  So, we do know the practical answers to your on-site questions and problems.
