Actual drainage job completed in Albany:

Here is one of many examples of a drainage construction project we completed on San Carlos in Albany:

We will construct a drainage system along the right, rear, and left sides of the residence. The depth of the system will be below the level of the slab floor. The system will discharge into a sump located at the rear from where the water will be pumped to the street. We will connect the downspout at the front of the house into a 4-inch solid pipe and run it directly to the street. We will remove and replace a strip of concrete along the right and left sides, a portion of the rear, and across the public walk. The right side portion of the drain will be constructed on your neighbor’s property, and advance permission will be needed for this.
