I normally don’t write reviews but thought it was important to do so.
I’m an overseas home owner and have been managing my properties abroad for 10+ years thus, it’s important to have a good network of trust worthy people to help with repairs etc.
My house is in Coquitlam and Drainrock was referred to me by drainage/restoration group based in N.Vancouver.
My basement/ foundation was leaking for a couple of weeks off and on. I contacted approx. 5-6 of the big names in plumbing, landscaping, restoration/ drainage as I didn’t know what kind of problem I had - as it could have been anything.
All of the groups told me that my drainage system had collapsed and that I should replace it immediately and quotes ranged btw $20K-50K to replace my entire drainage system - with warranty.
That being said, my basement had leaked a couple times before over the last 10 years so I thought it was very odd and thought it may have been a leaky pipe or the too much water in the back yard was causing my system to overwork and thought it was a bit odd that I might need a replacement all of a sudden.
Long story short - Drainrock dug a test hole, hydro flushed and video inspected to find a root blockage near the driveway by the retaining wall. The blockage was backing up water that was leaking through drain holes drilled through the retaining walls. They removed the root blockage and put a couple more holes in to increase water flow. Water is now flowing out the outgoing line and into the city storm - All fixed now.

Drainrock Industries helped take sting out of our very large and unexpected home project. The entire team was professional, hardworking, knowledgeable, and willing to go the extra mile.
My husband and I contacted almost a dozen companies, and only two showed up and provided full quotes. One of them was Drainrock. What won me over was the knowledge that Bob had about the various code requirements of the area, and of the changes that have taken place over the years. He discussed my options, areas of concern, and addressed the big picture (like the fact that I would have no backyard by the time they were done). He also didn't burden me with comments about how hard the work will be, or logistics. I would say I asked more questions than most, but always got prompt and direct responses to every question.
The crew showed up on time every single morning, and worked hard. They left the site free of garbage and debris. I almost missed having them around when the job was over.
I would highly recommend that anyone needing work that Drainage Industries can attend to, should book an initial meeting/quote and see for yourself.
