Backyard Drainage Solution Needed in Effingham

This customer was searching for an exterior drainage installation company in Effingham, IL that could solve their yard drainage problem. After heavy rains, a ditch in the rear of the house was not able to handle with the amount of runoff from adjoining neighboring yards and the adjacent field above.

Hydrostatic Pressure Creates Concrete Problems For Homeowner

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’m writing to extend my appreciation to all the folks that worked on my foundation. Everyone involved with this project deserves accolades for their work. I’m very happy with the result. I recently had a very bad experience with Pier Magic. They had to come out numerous times to fix mistakes and attempt to finish work that they failed to complete due to their incompetence. As you can imagine, this experience left me with little confidence. Helitech went above and beyond to repair the disaster that Pier Magic left.
Jon Meyer was a pleasure to work with. He provided a high level of customer service which made the whole process seamless. Scott was a major player in the success and quality of work. As a matter of fact, Scott was the foreman on a job that I had done in Spring 2016. He was familiar with my situation and worked very hard to complete the job in a timely manner. I would like to mention all members of the crew that made this project a success. All members played a key role in the quality and success of the project. In addition, everyone was very professional and courteous throughout the whole process. Please pass this note on as a thank you to the crew of Scott, John, Tim, Corey, and Bradley.
