A key system(s) on the outside of your home that usually goes unnoticed is your drainage. One reason might be the fact they are usually buried, and the old adage out of sight out of mind. Or that the existing drainage system will always work as designed. The facts are even with modern building materials, such as PVC piping, and better building codes your drainage systems still need to be inspected. Some areas more so that others for example, If the ground water on your property is subject to a higher level of minerals such as iron then your perimeter drainage is going to need more attention than an area that has less. The reason being is the build-up of minerals. With an annual to semi-annual Video Inspection along with a flushing program the staff at Urban Water Works can address all of your concerns.
Another issue might be the use of clay tiles. They are usually one foot in length and about 4" in diameter, placed end to end to form a continuous pipe. The problem with this system is at every joint there is an opportunity for debris and roots to infiltrate and start to compromise the system which is to take water away from your foundation.
Ideally you would have two complete systems that collect water. The first one is your perimeter drain tile that collects and channels the ground water away from your foundation. The second one is your rain leaders that take the water from your downspouts and channel it away from your foundation as well.
Both your perimeter drain tiles and rain leaders usually flow towards your sump and then discharges to the storm main. Your sump is usually located on the low side of your house and within approximately ten feet of your foundation.
The staff at Urban Water Works can address all of your concerns in a safe and efficient manner.

“Jeff did some remedial drainage work at our house. He came out to look at the job and then provided a written quote that clearly outlined the work to be done. He completed the job in less than the original estimated time. He showed up on time and notwithstanding the intrusive nature of the work, did not disrupt household routine. More importantly, notwithstanding the challenges he ran into (clay and more clay), he stuck to his original quote. I would certainly consider using Jeff and his company for similar work in the future.”
“Jeff Fitzpatrick and his Urban Water Works Inc. Company replaced the drain tiles on our property. Jeff did excellent quality work and had many opportunities to take the easy way out when unexpected challenges arose. Jeff maintained his high standards and did not compromise on his high quality workmanship even though the job took longer as a result. I would not hesitate to use his company again.”
“After our decrepit 50 year old water line sprung a leak it was finally time to replace it. Not having the faintest idea on how to go about hiring a reliable company to do the job I turned to google search engine to do a little exploration. The upshot to that was the appalling number of negative reviews that the more established water works companies had received from severely disgruntled former clients. Absolutely determined to avoid such a nightmare scenario I decided to go with a newbie company called Urban Water Works. It was a leap of faith that could have gone either way but ended up going the right way in every respect. Jeff, the proprietor, was quite professional and demonstrated a confidence and admirable work ethic that was truly impressive. After quoting a competitive price and receiving approval from the city he went to work with gusto and the entire project went smoothly from start to finish. I can heartily recommend this service!”
