The property is a Victorian end of terrace converted into two flats. Following a report into damp in the ground floor flat, the following works are required:-
• Install an ACO drainage channel at the base of the external walls. These should be linked up to the nearby gullies.
• Re-divert the rainwater downpipe at the side of the property into the new ACO drainage channel at the front.
• Remove the first decking board against the kitchen/bathroom/bedroom wall to reduce splashback on the external wall from rainwater.
• When parts of the decking are removed, inspect all gullies and the base of the soil vent pipes for defects; ensure these are watertight
We would like a quotation to provide all materials and labour.

Need to locate source of water seeping through stone slab into cellar. Recently damproofed at ground level but water still getting on. Also small amount of standing water beneath slab. Back to back cottage with small cellar. Water in small area below a ginnel next to property. May have been coal storage. Cottage end of 3 and built round 1850.
Supply and install a short run of new 110mm.drainage pipe to existing internal manhole inside kitchen with a rubberised seal for future connection to 42mm. sink outlet.
Seal existing redundant underfloor gully and trap.
A hole has opened up adjacent to the cover of a drainage inspection pit in our drveway. The cover has also cracked. I think the best solution is probably to replace the cover and its frame with a larger one. The existing cover is 20" by 25". The pit is approx 55cm by 85cm.
We have a drain which leads from our close into our front garden and out to the roadway and it is blocked. We need to clear the blockage as we trying to rebuild the manhole cover as a part of a job in our front garden
Had a patio laid a couple of years ago. There is a soakaway at the lowest point, but water is slow to disperse and it keeps flooding. Could do with a proper grate putting in and linking to existing drains.
Discuss proposals with householder (me), take levels to check the finished job will work.
Cut chase in paving slabs for ACCO drain, about 7m length, take up paviors and lay ACCO drain about 23m length, relay paviors around new drain, drain to end in open gulley at one end.
After trying to get a slow draining kitchen sink fixed, I have found out that I have a broken drainage pipe. It is possible that there is also a blockage near the break. The break is under the concrete sub floor/external wall of my ground floor flat. I have dug down in the flowerbed outside the kitchen wall and can see that water is coming out from underneath the breeze block foundations when it is emptied down the kitchen sink. There is no water leaking above the concrete sub-floor (I have checked via an access hatch in kitchen floor). I am not sure of the full extent of the problem so would need a CCTV survey to check as well as someone that can repair/replace the pipe with it being underneath my flat.
I have taken out an old concrete slab driveway which had a water run-off drain in it, and I am now putting turf down at a lower level. The old drain U-bend wants taking away, and the existing storm drain pipes lowering a bit or they will protrude above lawn level. There is also a square top foul drainage cover that wants lowering to same new lawn level. I think its a fairly basic job for a drainage contractor to do.
I need a new Drainpipe outside at my back. My original one has broken and the whole Drainpipe has completely fallen off. The rain is just coming through the hole at the top of gutter and is just landing on my slabs at the bottom. They are new slabs and are going to get ruined, if I don't have a Drainpipe. So need one urgently please. Many thanks
