Drainage and Why It’s Important

To most folks, the storm drain is simply a hole in the ground but to property owners it’s one more thing that needs to be maintained. Drainage is the single most important part of any paved surface; it’s where the water is directed away from structures to prevent damage and keeps you from stepping in huge puddles. Surface water is only one element of the drainage composition. Groundwater can damage more pavement than you might think, eroding or softening the base as well as seeping up through the pavement.
Holland Paving understands where the water needs to go and how to get it to the desired locations (away from structures and paved surfaces). Whether you have an existing system that is failing or installing a new drainage system, we can help. We train our staff to look for these issues first, as this can help determine past problems or prevent future issues with your pavement.
