DRAINAGE SYSTEMS

image59

Water drainage is a requirement for any home or building as it helps prevent structural damage.

Drainage systems remove excess water from around the home or business structure to prevent flooding, rot, mold or mildew. There are mainly four main types of drainage systems: surface - subsurface - slope - downspout and gutters.


Often, drainage issues can be spotted and easily remedied. Even if water has not pooled or flooding occurs there could still be a slow leak that will cause extensive damage. The general rule is that the structure should have a gutter and downspout system in place.

"I had John do some drainage work in my back yard and he did an excellent job, my water now flows freely. They were in and out and told me step by step how the process would go. They cleaned up the excess topsoil on the street and were very neat and tidy. He was on the job the whole time and did the work himself. I was very satisfied and would recommend him and have recommended him to people."

TYPES OF DRAINAGE SYSTEMS

Surface

For surface drainage to be successful, ditches must be dug in a parallel pattern. The ditches are shallow and will act as canals for run-off water.

Sub-surface

Subsurface drains are placed beneath the top layer of soil. This removes excess water from soil at the root level that has become water logged.

Slope

Slope drains allow water to generally take its natural course away from the structure and with the aid of pipes moving down a slope.
