The drainage system is an essential part of living in a city or urban area, as it reduces flood damage by carrying water away. In areas with houses, shops and roads we need to create alternative ways for this water to drain away. Large amounts of water can build up quickly during heavy rain, storms and without adequate drainage this flows towards low-lying land, causing flooding, damage and safety risks.
This home had no waterproofing or drainage systems in place. Water ingress was causing damp and mould issues inside. We have to remove the soil, high pressure clean, apply our waterproofing system, install drainage and drainage gravel.
The stormwater pits were upsized to take the volume of water away to the main pit. As the home is located lower than the street, surface drains also had to be installed.
