Storm Drainage in Vancouver, BC

Why You Need Quality Storm Drainage

All of the water that falls onto your roof during a storm needs to go somewhere. It’s best for your home if you have some control over where that somewhere is. This is where storm drainage enters the picture. If you have a professionally installed drainage system of gutters, catch basins, and a storm sewer to collect the water and place it into the municipal storm drains, you can avoid trouble from flooding into the lower areas of your house, such as the basement, and heavy runoff carrying away chunks of the soil from your lawn and gardens.

One of the major problems that residential properties suffer from because of storms is standing water. Standing water presents a number of dangers: it increases the risk of flooding, it will cause damage both to construction material and to lawns and gardens, and it raises outdoor humidity levels that will attract insects. If your yard often fills up with water during even a small rain shower, you will need to have professionals install catch basins that will remove this water into the storm sewer.

We Offer Drain Tile Maintenance

Drain tiles are installations for a basement or crawlspace that are responsible for collecting water from these areas and moving it to the sump of a sump pump so the water can be easily pumped away. Drain tiles can become clogged with use, as dirt enters their perforations, and they can also suffer structural damage from root growth and ground shifting. You should have maintenance done for your drain tiles on a regular basis (every 3 to 4 years or after a heavy storm) to prevent them from becoming blocked and threatening your property with water build–up. You can arrange for drain tile maintenance with our team.
