Retaining Wall Prices & Installation Costs Chicago IL
One common question that a lot of homeowners ask is, “How much does the construction of an average retaining wall cost here in Chicago?” Of course the nature of this question is a common concern, but the answer isn’t that simple. Obviously there are a lot of factors to take into consideration when trying to price out your retaining wall project. Some of these factors include the materials to be used, the skill and experience of the contractor, the slope grade, and the square footage of the planned wall project.
We CAN tell you, though, that the average price of a new retaining wall is around the $5,000.00 mark. The standard deviation of this number is quite large since no project is the same. Some people have huge areas that they want to wall off, in which case estimates can be in the $10,000.00 – $12,000.00 range. Other people may have a smaller area they want a barrier installed in which case these retaining wall estimates can range from $1,000.00 – $2,000.00.
If you are deciding on a project based on a specific budget, then understanding retaining wall costs can is imperative. When requesting an estimate, be sure that you have measured the area that you want walled off and have a general idea of what you want it to look like. Take into consideration any additional features you would like to have such as terracing, steps, lighting, etc. By letting the contractor know exactly what you’re looking for, you can get a strong idea of what you can afford.
