Do you need to update your drainage?
The weather seems to be more unpredictable than ever, are your drainage systems able to keep up? Do you have pooling water in your yard or surrounding your foundation? Over time drain tile/drainage pipes can become clogged, cracked, or disrupted by tree roots. This can cause the drainage system to not work as effectively and efficiently as it once did. Make sure to keep your gutters and downspout free of debris to allow them to flow properly.
Sometimes even with routine maintenance it can become necessary to update your drainage system.
In particular this tends to happen when corrugated pipe is used. While corrugated pipe is less expensive than Schedule 40 PVC, you will wind up paying more over-time as it will inevitably fail. It is also more susceptible to clogging and difficult to maintain.
When taking on a drainage issue, it is very important to make sure that you understand not only the services your contractor will be providing, but also the products. Be sure to ask questions that allow you to make informed and educated decisions about moving forward with your project.
This homeowner was experiencing pooling on their property. They hired Hughes Construction to address and update their drainage concerns. To resolve the issues, we removed all of the old, corrugated pipe and installed a drainage solution using Schedule-40 PVC pipe. This system quickly carries water on both sides of the house to an area away from the home and patio.
In order to design your custom drainage system, we do charge a consult fee for the time spent developing your estimate. This fee gets credited towards any work you move forward with. It also includes an hour of construction advice from our owner/operator, Tyler Hughes. Our drainage systems are custom designed to suit your needs. And they are buildable; drainage can simply be added on if your needs change.
