R. Brigante Excavating Specializes in Underground Drainage
Underground Drainage is our absolute favorite thing to do in our business. We are very good at it. There are only a few different types of drainage. Yard or property drainage, driveway drainage and foundation drainage. Now with that being said there are many different ways to go about drainage. Some situations can be handled multiple ways and others only one correct way of doing it. The source of the water is the first determination when putting together a plan on how to solving the issue. If there is a constant wet spot on the property then most likely it's a water table issue. If its only when it rains then it's a run off or grading issue. Rainwater is the biggest killer for homeowners. If the grading around the house has an improper pitch and it running towards the foundation that is a big "uh oh" The water should always run away from the house.
The biggest and most neglected aspect in rainwater solution is the leader or gutter downspout drains. All of your gutters should be piped and ran underground away from the house to daylight or if no daylight to be found, a drywell system. Thousands of gallons of water will hit your roof in a heavy rainstorm, let us keep it out of your basement or crawlspace. Nobody likes floods, mold, or crumbling foundations.
