Frequently Asked Questions
Panel and Post Precast Retaining Walls are quite different to traditional brick/limestone retaining walls so we have put together some of the most commonly asked questions to help guide you on your next project.
If we haven’t quite answered a question for you, please feel free to call us on (08) 9309 1933.
Can I install panel and post retaining walls myself?
Yes – Bradford Retaining walls are easy to install for the Home Handyman. We can also provide you with our Installation Guide and our Engineering Specifications.
Do you have your own installation teams?
Yes – Bradford Retaining has four installation teams who can install the wall for you.
Are panel and post retaining walls approved by Council?
Yes - Our panel and post retaining walls are engineered to Council specifications. We can assist with obtaining council approval.
Do you do domestic jobs, or do you just work for commercial or building companies?
We do all three. We can come and quote at your domestic property at a time to suit yourself. Or, we can quote off site plans, with a site visit, if the job is for a commercial or building company.
How high can a panel and post retaining wall go?
Our walls can go to 1500mm high using our concrete posts.
Our walls can go to 2100mm high using galvanized steel beams instead of concrete posts.
Can I install a retaining wall beside a driveway?
Yes – we have special engineering that allows us to build a wall with vehicular surcharge.
Will the panels fade with age?
Yes – We recommend using a solvent based sealant especially for the charcoal walls. There are a wide range of sealing products in the market, with a finish to suit your application.
Do you have samples of the walls?
Yes – we have samples of all the walls at our yard at 27 Rogers Way, Landsdale and a smaller display at Maddington Landscapes, corner of Boydell Rd and Kenwick Link, Kenwick.
How long will it take to get a wall installed?
That depends on the length, height and chosen finish. When we provide you with the quotation, we can give you an indication of the installation lead time. It’s usually between 1 and 2 weeks.
