Long Island French Drain Systems

Is your roof water being directed into your basement?

Rain water that falls on and around the property of a house or building complex needs to be managed so it does not create undesirable conditions. Water puddles on paved areas such as walkways, driveways and parking lots can freeze during the winter months, creating hazards. Water accumulation in planter beds and grass areas will eventually seep into the ground and create saturated ground conditions adjacent to basements and crawl spaces, increasing hydrostatic pressures and the possibility for interior leaks. Uncontrolled water flow from downspouts or converging from negative pitched grading will increase the potential for erosion and damage to landscaping and hardscaping alike. If there is any doubt of this, maybe a visit to the Grand Canyon would be found interesting.

Boccia Inc. can visually survey most properties and design a system to manage the water that will fall upon it. Water that discharges from roof gutter leader downspouts can be directed into sub grade pipes that can flow to daylight or drywells so it doesn’t end up against a basement wall. Gardens and grassy areas that are overburdened with water and remain swampy days after a storm can be drained with leach systems that will passively take water out of the ground.  A French Drain system can re-reroute pooled water to a place where it can find its way to the sewer.

Boccia Inc. has an array of systems that they’ve pioneered over decades in the industry that are unique and ingenious. The consultants at Boccia Inc. are experts in water management on Long Island based on the experience they’ve gained, and they have an unusual ability to understand how water flows in relation to the whole property to see how it will affect a particular location under severe deluges. In many circumstances, they will invent a solution when one does not exist. Nobody knows and does property drainage from our Long Island weather like Boccia Inc.
