Retaining Wall Repair

Client wants to replace a large and deteriorating retaining wall  with new Versa-Lok block and cap to match.  To minimize the cost of the project, the owner replaced only the broken block.  This negates the need  to replace the entire wall since the majority of the block is still structurally sound.
