Drainage System


Drainage System

Your drainage system is an integral part of your home. When Vancouver is immersed in its drizzly winter cloak, the last thing you want to worry about is water getting into your cozy home. Modern Drainage has tackled thousands of drainage issues since its establishment in 1987, and has found innovative and cost-effective ways to handle each job, with a focus on customer satisfaction. While we often advocate for repair rather than full replacement, sometimes issues discovered in your system may be too plentiful or serious to simply repair. In this case, we provide full excavation, landscaping, hardscaping, concrete and asphalt services, should your system need to be repaired or replaced.

Utilizing our sophisticated drain cleaning and video camera equipment, Modern Drainage is fully qualified to assess your drainage system for any areas of concern.

If you’ve noticed one or more of your outdoor ground drains backing up, or demonstrating an inability to drain, this may indicate an issue in your drainage system.

Other signs include: downpipes draining poorly or backing up, high moisture levels or interior leaks on the lowest floor, a musty smell in the basement, or watermarks on basement walls. Such issues may occur from: shifting of the line due to root infiltration, ground settlement, silt and sediment deposits, iron oxide deposition, or simply pipe degradation due to age and prolonged usage. This causes blockages or misalignments in the line which may result in backups if not properly addressed.


We evaluate each property on an individual basis.

However, we often recommend yearly maintenance for some systems that are more prone to blockages. You can think of it like going in for a yearly checkup with your dentist. You might be fine for many years without regular assessments, until suddenly an incident causes you to seek treatment. Then you’d regret not getting checked sooner, as you might have had some forewarning and been able to accurately budget for any major emergencies.

We regularly observe that those that keep up a consistent drainage maintenance schedule have fewer major system repairs, while receiving advance notice of any issues that may become an issue in the future, so that they are easily able to plan ahead for future expenses.
