I had a big project done in Sept 2018 with a new retaining wall and driveway done. I can't say enough good things about the crew that did the work for me. Rick McCutcheon came out several times to review the details of the project and price before getting started, he was sensitive to my needs and my budget. He understood this was a big project and wanted to be sure I was comfortable with the plan,...

Excellent! Their helpful scheduler was friendly and efficient in getting an estimator to come out and meet with me. Rick showed up right on time and was extremely helpful in discussing some options. I was most impressed that he also explained that the current wall would be fine if left as is, and that he didn't mislead me or resort to some scare tactics like a few other companies did, just to get ...

9 helical piles were installed with one failure due to an underground obstruction. A hammered pile was substituted with success. Jake McCutcheon was in charge of the team and was very good in keeping me informed with all aspects of the project. A soil engineer was also present to monitor the driving of the piles as depth and resistance measurements are key to insure maximum load benefits.

After being impressed by a concrete project in our neighborhood (a driveway and a bit more), we hired The Wall for a large project that entailed replacing several deteriorating areas in our own yard: a lower patio and adjacent retaining wall; our driveway; and a set of stairs connecting the driveway and patio. By and large, The Wall team and the work they did were top notch. We had a skilled, dedi...

The Wall's in-house crew built a patterned-block retaining wall (with drainage system) and steps in my backyard, and they did an excellent job. Challenges faced (steep driveway and limited work space and staging area) didn't deter. Throughout the project the crew carefully protected structures, such as a deck and fencing, and landscape plantings. When the job was done, they left the job site immac...

Each step of the way they were ALL open to hearing our ideas and visions and we are very grateful for their experience and craftsmanship. A special thank you to Darbaz, (the cement wizard) for his ability to design and build the new steps and walkway to our front door. He listened to our ideas and made them better. The curb appeal is striking. The new walk and creative mini-wall gives us an entran...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
What started as a request for an estimate to replace a retaining wall that had broken through, grew in size and scope to include: • Doubling the length of the original retaining wall, • Grading and installing a catch basin to help route runoff water from up the hill, • Redo the retaining wall on the opposite of the property, that had also broken through, • Redesigning and replacing the front walk and steps to our house to remove the tripping hazards, • Pouring 2 new patios using the concrete from the old patios in the new retaining walls, • Pouring a connecting walkway from a current walk to one of the patios

Great. Kristin and Rick at The Wall got in touch with me immediately and met with me to go over materials and quotes. As soon as we received approval from our HOA they put us on the schedule and completed the project in just a few days. Jake was the project manager and he and his workers were professional and friendly. We love the finished product!

It went great! We hired many companies to have done various projects, but Chris and his crew are the best we've ever met. They did an amazing job! Chris is professional, knowledgable, easy to communicate. All the suggestions he gave us were just useful and practical. My husband and I are very pleased to have chosen The Wall, and we will definitely to hire them again.

My house is on a very steep hill. The original lower stair case leading to the house was crumbling and falling apart. Th upper stair case was cracked and angled sharply due to a small front porch. Accessing my house was very difficult and becoming dangerous to climb. The house had no road appeal due to the stairs and porch. Chris from The Wall, came up with a new design and dimensions for the lowe...
