The forecast for this weekend is yet again calling for rain. With all this rain we have had many inquiries regarding solutions for standing water.

Hughes Construction Company installed drain tile leading from the rear patio around the right side of this home.  This drainage system will carry rain water and ground water away from the home’s foundation and out to the city street.

When hiring a contractor to install a drainage solution for your property be sure to do your homework. Ask about what products they will be using and how those products will hold up over time. Hughes Construction Company utilizes Schedule 40 drain tile on the drainage systems we install due to its long term durability.

Please keep in mind that if you are also experiencing water seepage into your basement you need to contact a licensed engineer to ensure that you are addressing the root cause of the problem and not just applying a quick fix that will need to be addressed again in the future, potentially costing you more money in the long run.
