Our concrete wall is creatively put together with heart, soul, hard work and passion! It takes lots of muscle as well as Diligence, Determination and Discipline. After one day moving rock around, digging trenches, placing your concrete wall equipment, Its easy to realize that this is a quite robust project, and well worth every effort. Turning a pile of dirt and a ton of rocks into a magnificent concrete wall is always a very ambitious project.The stone or Rock that will be used in Prestige Decorative concrete wall for Folsom will be extremely durable in order to last generations. Not all concrete rock is the same. Some concrete rock like granite and limestone can easily last for hundreds of years. Prestige Decorative concrete walls rock material is cold weather conscious, meaning we only use rock that is sustainable in a cold environment as to not crack and break down over time.

Concrete wall completion can be complicated, especially as the height of the wall increases. With over 20 years of experience, Prestige Decorative Concrete walls have seen heights of over 14 - 20 feet! If you are going to place concrete walls over 14 feet, approval of your county will be needed. When concrete walls begin to have significant loads of weight against them from the soil that you’re trying to hold back its takes a professional judgment as to exactly place the concrete wall against the soil. If you’re planning a tall concrete wall, we highly recommend that you have it engineered properly from an expert concrete wall specialist. You don’t want the concrete wall falling down injuring or killing someone or damaging your property.

Your rock concrete wall design will require you to decide between a dry stacked concrete wall versus a mortar concrete wall. We have seen that the dry stacked concrete walls will be long lasting, easier to construct, easier to maintain, better looking and resist freeze cycles that create frost heave and soil expansion that has been known to tip over some rock concrete walls.

Mortar rock concrete wall

Your standard rock, due to density, does not have the suction of brick and concrete block, so we will make the mortar mix quite stiff. Without any suction, the mortar mix will stay plastic for some time. If the mortar doesn’t get stiff from water loss fairly quickly, you can’t stack more rock on the concrete wall as the mortar moves in the lower rows or courses. Soil can be very heavy, especially if it’s wet. Our entire team at Prestige Decorative rock concrete walls will keep this in mind as we start to build your rock concrete wall. Your concrete wall needs to resist the push of this soil against the wall. If the ground above your concrete wall is sloped, you have extreme un-safe pressure pushing against the wall. We will absolutely never let this be the case in our completion of your mortar rock concrete wall.

Dry rock concrete wall

When dry stacking a rock concrete wall, Many elements need to be addressed early and correctly, friction between the individual pieces of rock is very important. This friction of rock on your concrete wall needs to be greater than the push of the soil behind the wall, otherwise the soil will push a course of stone from a lower one.

If you intend to create a flat area above a concrete wall that will act as a parking area for cars or trucks, you need to account for this extra surcharge load. Some of the weight of the vehicles will push against the wall, especially if the tires are close to the edge of the top of the wall.
