How to know if a block wall repairs are needed

Block walls are designed to be durable and to require as little maintenance as possible. They’re rot, pest, fire, and weather resistant, but that doesn’t mean they will always be free from damage. There are a few signs that you may need to call brick wall repair contractors to have a retaining or block wall repaired.

  • Separation From Adjoining Walls – If there appears to be a space between the block wall and an adjoining wall, it could be due to the movement of the block wall pulling away from the adjoining wall. It’s best to have this taken care of immediately to prevent it from pulling away further and starting to move, tilt, or collapse.  
  • Buckling or Bulging – If a retaining wall shows signs of buckling or bulging, it’s likely a sign that the wall is suffering from too much pressure in one or more areas. An expert will be needed to determine why this is occurring and what needs to be done to fix the primary cause.  
  • Cracking or Crumbling Blocks – Cracking or crumbling blocks can be replaced or filled and then sealed. If you notice cracks in the wall, even if they’re due to shifting and do not present a larger threat to the stability of the wall, it’s a good idea to have the repair done quickly. 
  • Forward Movement or Tilting – Retaining walls can suffer from forward movement or tilting if the pressure of water and soil builds up too much behind the wall. It may be necessary to look into why the pressure is building and ways to remove that pressure so the wall can be fixed, and the issue will not occur again.  
  • Damage to Gate – A gate can be damaged in several different ways, from accidents to wear and tear or the weather. If the gate is having trouble opening or closing, looks like it’s leaning, or is showing any other signs of damage, have it repaired. Repairing quickly can prevent the issue from becoming worse over time.  
  • Loose Blocks – Occasionally, a block can become loose. When this happens, the block can be replaced and fixed into place. If you notice a block that sticks out a little from the others or that feels loose, have an expert take a look at it right away.

Repairing Block Walls

If there are more serious issues, we can also handle the block fence repair for you and make sure the issue is fully corrected. Often, this is more involved than just repairing what is wrong. We’ll need to determine why the issue happened and what needs to be done to prevent it from happening again. Then, we can work on the concrete wall repair to get your wall back in good shape again.
