The importance of residential catch basins

Catch basins, sometimes called drains, are buried containers that collect and re-distribute surface water. If you’ve got an older home, you may have one or more catch basins on your property. But did you know that you can also install them as well?

In this article, Replace-It Concrete in Edmonton shares why catch basins and catch basin repairs are essential for homeowners.

Keep water out

Homes in Edmonton face many harsh weather conditions and can come into contact with excess water from rain and melting snow. Newer homes are built to repel water, but keeping water away is also important. Catch basins help with this. On the other hand, older properties may not have the capacity to repel water like newer ones do. This is why many of them were built with catch basins on their property.

Replace-It Concrete can repair catch basins in older homes. In addition, they can install them.

Catch basin repair and installation

Unwanted water can result in several new challenges for your property. For example, if water isn’t draining correctly, it can turn your lawn into moss, encourage mould growth and, after prolonged periods, cause significant damage.

A catch basin can help take care of this. If your catch basin is not functioning as it should, or you’re unsure, asking a trusted contractor to come out and access your older home’s catch basin is a good idea. This way, your contractor can let you know what is and isn’t working efficiently, do needed repairs or install a new catch basin. Many people in older homes may not even be aware their catch basin needs repairs. That’s why calling a contractor out to your home to take a look can be very beneficial.

Dual catch basin installation

In some cases, a dual catch basin is the best option for your home. With a dual catch basin, two catch basins are installed near each other to collect excess water. This can be highly beneficial for certain areas of your home. For example, in a garage. This is especially helpful if you use your garage for housework or car repairs. With a dual catch basin in the garage, you can ensure easy clean-ups when dealing with the melting snow dripping from your car.

In the 2022 season, Replace-It Concrete installed a dual catch basin and added epoxy flooring to this home.

With stunning results, you can create optimum functionality for your garage and say goodbye to messy, wet garage floors.
