Drain excavation is a complex and costly task, needing stringent safety measures in place, and so is generally only used if other repair methods have failed or been deemed insufficient to tackle the drainage problem at hand. Excavating carries a number of risks including the possibility of damaging electricity or gas pipelines or subsidence of the trench so it needs careful planning and management.
Cost effective repairs
Where old or badly damaged drains are beyond simple repairs, digging down to the drain may be the only option. This means taking careful account of other services which could be damaged in the process so we will always conduct a thorough pre excavation assessment to make sure the planned repair will be as efficient and cost effective as possible. This plan will also include details of how the area will be made good following the excavation, where like for like reinstatement is always our goal to ensure the site is left as good as new.
