A drainage problem isn’t something you simply “deal with”. Our contractors will make sure to solve the underlying problem in order to prevent more problems down the road. This isn’t always an easy task, but our skilled contractors will help you solve your problems in the most effective and efficient way possible.
1.) Our contractors have tons of references. When undertaking such a serious project, you want to make sure your contractor has experience and knows what they are doing. Our positive references are a good indication that our team will be able to solve the problem effectively, is pleasant to work with, and follows through.
2.) Our contractors offer a significant guarantee. Beware of companies who do not! If they are confident in their work, they will have no problem offering up a guarantee.
3.) Price is not the best indicator of quality when it comes to drainage contractors. You should rely more on references, guarantees, and knowledge of the subject. Our contractors are extremely knowledgeable, pleasant to work with, and can provide you with numerous references.
4.) As a client, you should feel comfortable with your contractor! This is one of the most important aspects of doing business with a someone. Our contractors are personable and will be there to help you throughout the process.
5.) A scale drawing will be made available before the project begins. This is essential when it comes to drainage work. Our contractors will provide you with a detailed, scale drawing of the project, and will sit down with you and explain everything in detail. This is a good time to address any concerns you may have.
6.) Our contractors will have a maintenance plan available. Inevitably, there will be some aspects of your drainage solution that may need to be maintained down the road. For example, grass swales may generate silt that will need to be removed. Leaves will build up on drain grates. Our team will either explain to you how to deal with future maintenance requirements or create a schedule for our crew to come out and check on and maintain your system regularly.
7.) Our reputable contractors don’t immediately jump to the most expensive solution. Sometimes your problems may be due to things as simple as too much shade from large trees or insufficient gutters. These are problems with relatively simple solutions. This isn’t always the case, but when it is, we will be sure to let you know!
8.) Unlike others, our contractors do not rely heavily on black corrugated pipe! Corrugated pipes have ridges on the inside as well as the outside of the pipe. This leads to serious buildup that can potentially clog your system and cause significant problems. Esposito's' contractors use high-quality materials such as double-walled, smooth pipes. Because these smooth pipes lack ridges, they clog far less and are much easier to clean if a clog does occur. A relatively small decision, like the type of piping used, can make a huge difference when it comes to the effectiveness and maintenance requirements of your system. Our contractors will know which materials to use and which to avoid. Never hesitate to ask “why” a contractor is using the materials they are using. If the answer is simply “cost”, you may want to consider searching for a new contractor! A cheap system will do you no good if it is clogged and ineffective.
9.) Our highly regarded contractors will always “call before they dig”. It is possible for them to easily obtain information from the city about where gas, water, and electrical lines enter your yard, but as a responsible customer, it is imperative that you inform your contractor where anything else may be buried in your yard. This includes pumps, invisible dog fences, outdoor lighting wires, sewer lines, cables, irrigation systems, etc. If it’s in the ground, let your contractor know before they start to dig!
If you choose to shop around for a contractor, be aware that it is not wise to pick and choose ideas from different contractors and concoct your own hybrid version of their various plans. This can lead to serious problems when it comes to effectiveness and accountability. It is best to find a contractor that you are comfortable with, who has good references and a good guarantee, and accept their plan in its entirety. We can assure you that our team has solved problems similar to yours many times and truly knows what they are doing. We are able to explain not only the how, but the why, when it comes to solving your problem.
If you take care in selecting your contractor and ask the right questions, you will be much happier with the outcome. Drainage problems can be a nightmare, but our contractors will solve your problem in a way that eases the burden for years to come.
