A leaky retaining wall may need several different types of leaky retaining walls repairs, and not all repair works may be DIY style. You may and would obviously need a supporting hand, some professional help in many cases. It all depends on how much you are experienced the damage that has to be repaired, the material and method that would get used. Hence to understand that if you can do it all yourself, or need full or partial help; let’s find out the common damages that a leaky retaining wall shows.

Leak due to damage on the adjoining drain

The le

ak can occur due to damage the drain attached to the base of the all. The drain may be broken or cracked and this may lead to seeping in of the water, and thus the wall may attract more damp, and let in water. The drain must therefore be carefully looked, and you should find out the site of the patchwork requirement. You would need professional consultation to understand after a testing, that the problem would be resolved or not after the leaky retaining walls repairs.

Leak due to loose soil which freezes or accumulates liquid

Sometimes the soil beneath the wall is too loose and may accumulate water which freezes and changes temperature rapidly through a day, thus making the wall concrete unstable. These sorts of temperature variations where even the minute water concentration is involved may lead to loosening concrete bonding, and the damage may be serious. Professionals would be able to help you out in managing this, by testing the humidity and moisture in associated soil, and by checking the base. Any planning for leaky retaining walls repairs can be made based on that.

Leak due to worn off protective paint

Sometimes the paint which is the waterproof coating and prevents any leak or moisture from outside to seep inside may disappear due to weathering, temperature and time. Due to such reasons, you may have to coat the wall in paint again. If you need some patchwork for the paint or a complete coat, you may try DIP or professional help. It all depends on your idea of doing it. If you have little idea, it would be wise not to experiment with costly paint, the important retaining wall, your property and precious time. Rather you should call an expert.

Leak due to broken tie-backs

Sometimes the tie-backs or support on the wall may be damaged, cracked or broken, thus allowing in moisture, and causing leaks inside. In such cases also the best solution is given by experts. Whether you need leaking balcony repairs or repairs on a retaining wall in some dam, or factory, or warehouse, or garage etc, you need experts to understand the force of the adjoining soil and water on the wall to decide the next step and level of repair.

Precautious to be taken

These are all strong reasons, due to which the leaks build up on the retaining walls. Hence you must arrange for a bi-yearly or annual visit of the retaining wall by professionals, who would watch the status of the wall and advice you the maintenance needed. It’s always good to care before it’s too late. And in case you really need a nice repair work, patch work, leaking balcony repairs etc, you must get services from the best men for the most effective and durable solution.
