This kind of drainage requires specialized construction
techniques which ensure that buildings are protected against
humidity. We recommend that you have a drain installed
at the base of the house footings so as to prevent water
entry into the basement. This will also prevent humidity
from entering and creeping up the interior walls.
Installing surface drainage is the way to go
to stop water from accumulating on a property and close
to buildings. You’ll want maximum usage from your
Install surface drainage to connect to your gutters. It’s
very effective in leading water away from a building.
If you don’t lead the rainwater away as it falls
from the roof, in time it will erode the soil at the base
of your terrace or flower beds. On top of that, water
that is allowed to stagnate on the surface creates just
the environment that mosquitoes and other such nuisance
insects love to create their nests.
For farmers, the most important factor in managing production
is proper management of water. Too much water deprives
plants of oxygen and encourages disease and root rot.
On the other hand, not enough water holds back plant growth,
resulting even in plant mortality. Rainfall during the
year varies a great deal. A proper drainage system allows
surplus water to run off without causing erosion; while
in periods of drought it can store the precious liquid
and distribute it evenly amongst the plants.
Our Demolition License is good for many kinds
of buildings; houses, barns, cottages, restaurants and
so on. Demolition can be dangerous work and we take all
necessary precautions to carry it out in a safe manner.
Every year we attend courses that accredit us
to undertake the installation of various septic disposal
technologies such as: Bionest, Eco-flo, and Enviro-Septic.
Our personnel are fully trained to undertake installations
of traditional septic and disposal fields. In order for
us to proceed, you need to go through a number of steps.
You first need to choose a company that does percolation
tests. It’s required by law, and anyway we need
it to make sure you get the best kind of installation
for your particular conditions. The test is applied under
Regulation Q-2, r.8, which consists of determining the
permeability of the soil, how far down it is to bed rock
and the level of ground water. Once you have that, you
need to get a septic field installation permit from your
Municipal Inspector. Once that is all done, we can go
Walls, Rock or Stone Walls:
Rock walls can be positioned along the banks
of rivers and streams. When properly placed and backed
by an impermeable membrane, they protect the environment
Retaining walls can be built to your specifications. We
build them strong. We build them safe and sound. They
won’t slip sideways under the effects of gravity,
ice or soil subsidence. We make sure that there is adequate
provision for drainage.
Dry walls are becoming more and more popular. They look
beautiful and they are durable. Unlike wooden retaining
walls or fences which rot and have to be replaced, stone
walls do not decay. They offer a unique charm that no
other material can approach. On top of that, they look
so good as they age. They add allure to any garden border
and character to your perennial beds. Plus, they add great
value to your property.
• Placement of stones in holes or ditches
to prevent erosion, while allowing water to flow
• Natural looking placement of stones along access
a Basement to an Existing Dwelling:
Older houses were often built directly on a foundation
of rocks and stones, maybe with a crawl-space. By adding
a basement, the owners of such properties can reap great
benefits in increased living space and value of the home,
to say nothing of eliminating vermin, water and humidity.
