It’s no surprise that with the odd (or should we say typical) British summer we are having. A heatwave followed by storms and lots of rain, we thought it might be time to focus on drainage groundworks. Water can cause a lot of damage to property. So, it would help if you thought about drainage solutions for your building project at an early stage. That’s where we come in. As groundworks specialists based in Petworth, we work with clients throughout West Sussex and beyond.
Drainage Groundworks – Why we need them:
Before we look at the drainage groundworks services we offer, here are some of the reasons why land drainage is an essential consideration for homeowners:
That stands to reason. But flooding isn’t just unsightly and temporarily inconvenient; it can also have a severe impact on your home’s long-term stability.
If the ground gets waterlogged, this can contribute to soil erosion and undermine the integrity of your foundations.
Enhances your Living Environment
If we say that flooding from poor drainage can have a detrimental impact on your home, we also need to consider that excellent drainage solutions can enhance your living environment.
Just like you consider heating, insulation, and telecommunications services to enhance how you live in your home, you should also consider drainage. If you aren’t on mains drainage services (like many of our Petworth and West Sussex clients), we can offer some environmentally friendly drainage solutions that can enhance your lifestyle.
Selling your Home
Water damage or drainage complications are a big red flag to potential buyers. So, you must have top-notch drainage groundworks in place.
Termites, fungi and mould all thrive in homes that have been exposed to water damage or have poor drainage. So, drainage groundworks help to keep you and your home healthier.
We offer a range of drainage services to both commercial and residential clients, including;
- Designed installations
- Sewage treatment plants
- Rainwater harvesting tanks
- Septic tanks
- Mains drain connections (including work required in the highway)
- Cesspools/Sewage Holding Tanks
