The underground sewer and water line infrastructure in our metropolitan areas is significant. Often, it is at the end of its life cycle and needs to be renewed or replaced. Since most of the underground infrastructure has been in place for decades, streets, sidewalks, landscaping, even buildings have been layered on top of the underground pipes. Replacement by open trench construction is very disruptive because of the congestion and development that must be “peeled off” to expose the pipe in order to remove the old and lay in the new. This presents some unique challenges.
Pipes can be installed or replaced without digging a trench. This saves time, money and minimizes disruption to landscaping, driveways, sidewalks and concrete slabs such as in basements.
Typically, by the time a trench would have been dug, the job can be finished using trenchless technology instead. The minimal disruption to existing infastructure is a two-fold cost saving benefit—both time and money. Plus, the minimal site disruption also means minimal restoration, thereby saving even more expense that would have been necessary with the old 'cut and cover' method.
At the completion of the job, our crews will restore the property to its original condition. Allied Waterproofing warrantees our systems for an appropriate period of time from the completion of the project, depending on the scope and design of the installation—typically anywhere from 3 to 20 years for most solutions. Any defects in construction or function of the system will be corrected in a timely manner.
