32 years excellence

Universal Home Improvements has been building and repairing high quality retaining walls with drainage for 32 years in San Francisco and San Mateo counties. As a local retaining wall contractor we understand all the city and county codes required to build a quality retaining wall that will last for years.

Retaining walls can look nice from the front but if you don’t pay serious attention to what goes on behind and below the retaining wall, you could be in for a nasty surprise. A poorly built wall can separate, lean, or even topple causing massive property damage and all because the proper drainage system isn’t installed behind it.

I can’t say enough on how impressed I am with your company. The retaining walls you installed look great and I’m real happy with the drainage system you told me I needed too because without that I would still have problems. I also want to thank you for the great painting work your other crews performed because the colors your consultants helped pick out look great.


Thank you for a really nice job. The walls came out looking real nice and strong. I also love the drainage system you installed behind the walls it’s working real well. Your crews were great and even helped me bring in my groceries one day. I also told my brother to call you because he needs a new driveway. Great job and thank you crew again for me please.

Margret & Larry

The new retaining walls are so beautiful compared to our old ones. Your knowledge on what materials to use was very helpful. I also thank you for installing the drainage system because nobody else ever mentioned it and now I see how important it is. Oh did I say I loved the crew and how they cleaned up every day.
