Hi guys,

Here's the latest update.
The guy that was supposed to be an engineer came out and took a look at my wall this week. It turns out that he is not a licensed engineer, but has a university degree in landscape design.

He liked my idea of terracing the yard with two walls in place of the one failing wall.

Here is the rough estimates he provided to do either a segmented wall or a rock veneer wall.

Segmental Wall:

Existing Wall Demolition: $ 8,000.00
General Site work: $ 5,500.00
New Wall Installation: $ 20,460.00
New Wall Cap: $ 900.00
Stairwell Construction: $ 3,500.00
Site Repair: $ 4,500.00
Professional Fees: $2,500.00

ANALYSIS TOTAL: $ 43,360.00

Cast in place with rock veneer wall:

Existing Wall Demolition: $ 8,000.00
General Site work: $ 5,500.00
New Wall Installation
- Foundation $ 13,970.00
- Masonry Construction $ 16,706.00
Site Repair: $ 4,500.00

ANALYSIS TOTAL: $ 51,176.00


Needless to say, I was a little surprised with how high his estimate was and I'll be again looking for a licensed engineer.

Thanks!
