As a result, the homeowner’s yard would continually flood, leaving the standing water and around the home’s foundation for days. The water adjacent to the garage foundation allowed water to come through the floor drain into the garage. Thus, causing the garage floor and concrete driveway to heave and crack due to the hydrostatic pressure.

Hydraway Yard Drainage Increases Flow Rate For Exterior Waterproofing Support

After the initial site visit, Helitech’s plan was to install Hydraway drainage tile in the affected area as a means to capture the standing water and to direct it away from the home. The homeowners had performed extensive research on several waterproofing companies that would install a pipe and rock type systems.

The homeowner, however, understood that Hydraway had a superior quality to other competing products and not a pipe and rock type system. Some of the value they saw by using Hydraway was resistant to clogging, better absorption rate and, a better flow rate to get the water away.

I want to let you know that the crew that did the work at my house the past two days were very refreshing. It was nice to see people wanting to work and learn. Alex P knew his job very well and took the time to explain the steps to me throughout the process. He also was an excellent instructor, he has great soft skills when teaching his coworkers. You have a good man working for you. The rest of the crew, Akil C, John T & Kim W, was very polite. They worked & followed Alex’s instructions and wanted to learn. The experience for me was a positive one.
