Few things are as destructive and stressful as water coming into your home.  The issues that cause water intrusion can vary wildly…from distressed foundations to an artesian well under the home, a saturated water table due to poor topical drainage or simply incorrectly installed downspouts.  Just as there is no single problem that causes a water issue, there is no single solution to fix them.  

Wet yards, leaking sub-grade walls, water in the basement, icing walkways and sidewalks, cracking driveways, failing stoops and patios, flooding walkouts, distressed exterior walls, backed-up downspouts, erosion, sick trees due to water saturation, MOSQUITOES…all of these are problems we solve all the time.  If you are facing any of these challenges and need help please request an estimate and we will be happy to come and provide a plan and fair cost estimate to deal with the problem.    

Many drainage contractors offer a one-stop solution…..jackhammer your floor, install an interior drain, hook it up to a sump pump and cycle the water out to the yard.  Is that the answer?  In some cases it has to be, but rarely.  At Phoenix our goal is always to mitigate the water issue at the source, outside the home, and to prevent water from ever entering the house.  When necessary we can, and do, install interior drains and pumps but more often than not we can solve the problem on the exterior without major disruption and destruction on the inside of your home, (and to your peace of mind!).

Commercial

At Phoenix we are experts at navigating the complexities of commercial drainage projects.  We have the qualifications, certifications, staff and experience to work with property management firms, HOA and community boards, all levels of government contracting entities, local municipalities, zoning, wetland conservation regulators, etc., required for a project.  

For instance, there are extremely stringent protocols for carrying water via direct connection to a stormwater evacuation system.  If done improperly, or worse without the required permissions, the ramifications can be severe for Contractor and customer alike.  At Phoenix we can navigate the requirements for each and every unique instance and work within the requirements of contracting, zoning, design review boards, etc. to make the project a success.  

If you are a property manager and have multiple properties requiring a comprehensive drainage solution we are the contractor for you!  Schedule an estimate and we will perform a thorough walk-through and present a solution set geared specifically to meet the needs to the community you are entrusted to care for.
