With over three decades of experience in structural and concrete work and extensive expertise in concrete retaining wall engineering and construction, you can be assured of getting a strong and solid retaining wall that performs its intended purpose, and is built to last.

We also provide expediting services that will relieve you of the hassle of obtaining permits and coordinating with various engineering professionals in case your retaining wall build is subject to more rigorous building requirements — as is the case if your retaining wall is greater than 4 feet in height. For installing a retaining wall like this, an engineered plan is required as well as retaining wall permits and varying grading requirements such as a Geologic and Soils Engineering Exploration Report.

Building a retaining wall can have it's challenges a clients construction experience review

I want to thank everyone at Sinai for the great job you did at our house. I actually know a fair amount about construction and it was very gratifying to see your crews always making sure things were just perfect. They never failed to arrive early and stay late when necessary. They did not complain when some unexpected snag developed (in our case multiple old tree roots), and just going non-stop to get the project done right and on schedule. In all, Sinai's office staff and work crews provide professional, quality work at what I believe are reasonable prices. I'm not trying to write an advertisement for Sinai but just wanted you to know that my wife and I are very pleased and very happy with your crews and their foundation repair work.
