It is vital that paved asphalt warehouse lots and parking areas have efficient drains installed to prevent flooding and pooling of water that may lead to dangerous iced areas during the winter season and/or any season for that matter as standing water can damage asphalt over time. It is best to act in a proactive manner when drainage issues are noticed. By rectifying the situation while it is still somewhat minor you will save money in the long run by stopping the damage before it gets worse and involves more costly repairs and time.
Damage to the underlying walls is clearly visible in this before image of a recent commercial catch basin drain rebuild project in Wayne, N.J. Failure within the underlying grate and the walls is resulting in poor runoff, pooling of water and debris accumulating below stopping further water flow.
Within the Northern New Jersey area, many drainage issues are the result of the freeze-thaw cycles common throughout the winter months and from erosion. When these freeze-thaw cycles occur, catch basin and storm drains can heave as they and the surrounding areas expand and contract. A typical repair or drain rebuild involves excavating the drain catch basin, making repairs to the inner walls, setting the proper slope for proper water drainage, reinstalling a grate, and in this case repaving the immediate surrounding area with asphalt. To minimize down time and/or disruption of your business flow our experts can complete these repairs in a timely manner.
