What Lies Beneath?
It’s a scenario that is all too familiar. You purchase a beautiful home in a mature neighbourhood or you are set to renovate your house. You love those big trees in the yard. It’s one of the reasons you choose this area and that nice, flat terrain? Heavenly! Oops, wait a minute….those trees and lack of slope could mean a damaged drain line.
Tree roots in the drain is the most common cause of drain line blockage. Older drains are also prone to cracking, collapsing and backing up due to debris. An improperly graded yard (no slope) impacts the flow in the drain. These are issues you need to be aware of before you buy or renovate a house. Failing to take drain problems into account can be costly.
But Everything Seems Ok….
It’s hard to know if you have a clogged drain, collapsed drain, tree roots in your drain or other drain line problems until you are faced with a flooded basement, are halfway through your renovation, or your sinks/shower/toilets start clogging. Factoring in an unexpected pipe repair in the middle of your renovation or house purchase will throw your budget into the red.
Who Should Get a Drain Inspection?
Whether your home is new or old, rural or urban, having your drain scoped is a smart idea. Did the landscaper include the right slope (grading) in your yard? Are those trees causing issues in your mature neighbourhood? Did the previous owner pour grease down the drain causing a buildup over time that will soon become your problem?
Don’t wait until it’s too late. You can’t see into your drains, but we can! Drain inspection is part of good home maintenance. Be proactive and contact us today.
