Water and Sewer Line Repair / Replacement

We don’t often think about the water and sewer lines running to and from our homes until they become a problem. We are equipped to handle everything from emergency situations to new line installations and clay sewer pipe repairs. Locating leaks and digging down without damaging existing lines shouldn’t be left to anyone but the pros.

Drain Line Inspection and Cleaning

Most home inspections don’t offer sewer drain line inspection as part of their standard checklist. We use a special video camera head that’s connected to a flexible cable and inserted into the sewer line to detect a number of possible issues. Left unresolved, stoppages, blocks, leaks, roots, mud, broken pipe, and buildup can cause significant damage and expense.

Downspouts and Yard Drainage Systems

Tired of standing water in your front or backyard? There are a variety of solutions that can alleviate flooding issues. Once we determine the cause, we can recommend a plan to take care of the problem once and for all. Our flood prevention strategies include re-sloping, water barriers, gutter downspout systems, French drains, channel drains, catch basins, and sump pumps.

Lot Foundation Excavation

Burlee’s Excavation & Drains performs a variety of site excavation services including lot clearing, lot grading, and lot filling. Whether you are building a new home, making improvements to an existing structure, or adding a new addition, patio, or outbuilding, we can complete all the necessary foundation work so your builders can get to work on schedule.

Basement Waterproofing

Discovering the source of moisture and leaks is the first step in tackling any basement water issue. Our team will thoroughly inspect your basement for free and provide you with a custom plan and quote based on your unique situation. It can take a combination of products and solutions to achieve a dry basement that you’ll be able to enjoy for years to come.

Concrete Paving

Burlee’s Excavation & Drains is suited to meet homeowners’ concrete paving needs. Our flatwork services include concrete foundation preparation and installation of sidewalks, driveways, and patios. Additionally, we have the expertise to install retaining walls where they are needed.

Sump Pump Installation

A sump pump is an incredibly valuable resource in a home. Installed in the lowest part of a basement or crawl space in a recessed pit, a sump pump pumps water out of the pit and away from the home to keep your space dry and prevent damage. Burlee’s Excavation & Drains installs complete sump pump systems and can recommend a quality pump that’s built to last.
