FAQ

  • Why should I use DURAWALL instead of timber for my retaining wall

    • Durable: it will last at least 4 times longer than timber walls.
    • Maintenance free: DURAWALL will not rot, burn, warp, split or flake and is resistant to termites/white ants.

    Although you will pay a little extra upfront, the cost difference is insignificant over the life of the product. It’s a big job to remove a failed retaining wall…do it right the first time!
