Dealing with Surface and Ground Water Drainage Problems
Every time surface water causes flooding in low-lying areas, businesses and homes located around these areas will be affected. Destruction of property and disruption of lives is the result. However, flooding can also be brought about by light showers where there is no drainage system constructed to help get rid of the water. A lacking surface drainage system is also known to foster basement flooding in areas where ground water rises to high levels close to the surface. Our work is to help clients prevent surface and basement flooding by constructing quality drainage systems in and around the city of Carlisle, Cumbria in Scotland.
Let’s first begin by outlining exactly what surface and ground water is. The former refers to water collected at surface level from rain. When rain falls, the water rushes to the ground looking for a way to drain into the ground; however with hard surfaces such as driveways and pavements around today’s homes, it can be hard to find a place to drain through if not constructed. The water will collect at the lowest point around your home causing flooding problems. The only answer to this is to create surface water drainage system for the water to drain through.
Ground water, on the other hand, refers to water, which is in the ground, soil or sand. This water rises to the surface depending on the water level of the surrounding area and can result into basement flooding from time to time. This can be very frustrating especially for people who usually store valuables in the basement or use it as a living space. For homeowners who want to eliminate this problem once and for all, consider constructing a ground water drainage system.
When you choose to construct the drainage system to rid yourself of the trouble water drainage creates, you will have to consider a variety of factors. Among the main factors to consider here includes, where to drain the water to, the type of materials required in constructing the drainage system. For ground water drainage, it is important to have an idea of the ground water level so as to have the necessary depth at which the drainage system should lie. You will also have to consider the need for permission from the local authorities to commence the work.
This can be quite overwhelming for most homeowners, given that they have no knowledge of how to construct such drainage systems. We have a team of experienced craftsmen with 30 years of experience working on domestic drainage systems in and around the city of Carlisle in the county of Cumbria, Scotland. We will not only have the right skills and equipment for the job, but also make sure everything is left as tidy as we found it, especially considering that to install underground pipes the ground will have to be torn apart. Our skills in laying pavements and driveways will also come in handy.
