We’re still not entirely sure whether summer arrived this year… But with a sniff of Autumn in the air (sorry!), it’s time to think about the Sussex groundworks services we can help you with this Autumn.
Sussex Groundworks Services for Autumn:
At Timberley Projects, based in Petworth, we offer Sussex groundworks services for commercial and residential clients. Our crews work all year round, and there are very few occasions that the weather curtails us. But, like any industry, there are some jobs that it makes sense to address seasonally.
At Timberley, we offer an emergency call-out service to help you resolve any drainage issues caused by water leaks or flooding. This might include access ways and damage to driveways. But, many of the call-outs we attend might have been mitigated with some seasonal maintenance.
Now is a perfect time to give your pipework the once over. We can help you avoid the unnecessary expense of emergency works by carrying out drainage work now. If you have water pipes rising from the ground, do check exposure. And once the leaves have fallen, it’s essential to check all downpipes and gullies to avoid blockages. Talk to us about seasonal drainage maintenance.
Driveways and Access Ways:
If you have potholes in your driveway or access way, autumn and winter storms are only going to make them worse. So, now is the time to think about repair or replacement. If you have surface cracks rather than potholes, these may be repairable. But, it would be best if you also considered the age of your driveway. A well-laid tarmac driveway should last for around twenty years. If it hasn’t been replaced during this time, it might be time to consider a new driveway.
If you have a ground-up building project on the go, now is the time to fast-track your foundations. Autumn and winter weather can hamper some groundworks jobs with delays. And it’s not uncommon for foundations, concrete slabs and drainage jobs to take a third longer in continued spells of bad weather.
Don’t Forget Your Four-Legged Friends:
One of our specialist areas of Sussex groundworks services is equestrian works. We construct all-weather surface, fully-fenced sand schools across the county and beyond. These are perfect for exercising your pony over the cooler months. If you stable your horse over winter, now is the time when you’ll be preparing their shelter. If you have noticed that the stable base could do with some TLC, talk to us about a replacement.
