Your home is your rock – your foundation. That’s why it’s critical to take extra care of your home’s foundation and prevent water accumulation in your basement. Retaining walls can do this by minimizing moisture and mildew, which may prevent extensive water damage and repair from recurring.
The trained, licensed, and bonded professionals at Premier Wall Anchor & Waterproofing are experts at installing and repairing retaining walls, foundations, and basements.

Protect Your Basement with Retaining Wall Installation
A retaining wall helps increase your home’s longevity and structural integrity in many ways. Here are just a few of the benefits a retaining wall provides:
Minimized Basement Moisture
A retaining wall directs water away from your home’s basement and foundational architecture towards a designated drainage system. This can prevent moisture from pooling around your home’s edges and seeping into the foundation.
Reduced Soil Erosion
Soil and earth naturally shift as seasons change and precipitation falls. This is especially true in Northeast Ohio, where seasonal changes are dramatic. Retaining walls can help stabilize and maintain the soil and temperatures around the foundation of your home, lessening erosion and potential cracks to basement walls. Maintaining a stable basement can prevent sloped interior floors or sinking exterior corners around your home.
Greater Structural Stability
Retaining walls are especially useful for stabilizing homes located on sloping grounds. These walls direct the flow of moisture to a piped drainage system, funneling it away from your property.
Another benefit of a retaining wall is that it’s relatively easy to install. The wall is constructed separately from a home’s foundation, so installation doesn’t create major disruptions to your daily routine or landscape.
Premier Wall Anchor & Waterproofing retaining walls are not only functional and durable but attractive, as well. We can help you choose a retaining wall that complements and is incorporated into the style and look of your home, landscape, and neighborhood.
Repairing Retaining Walls and Structural Issues
Not only can Premier Wall Anchor & Waterproofing install a new retaining wall to protect your basement foundation, but we also know how to repair them. Over time, heavy storms, seepage, and continual dampness can wear away and lead to leaks in your existing retaining wall. Pressure from dirt, mud, or water can also damage the wall.
Our trained, licensed, and bonded professionals can analyze and diagnose potential retaining wall weaknesses and repair the damage. We have extensive experience installing wall anchors as a possible solution to stabilize bowed or compromised retaining walls. These hefty anchors are constructed of heavy-duty galvanized metal and embedded into the ground on each side of the wall. This technique works to counteract the pressure sources that cause wall bending and cracking.
