Proper sidewalk water drainage is important for concrete sidewalk maintenance and to provide a safe and comfortable experience for pedestrians. It is important to provide a slight slope on concrete sidewalks to ensure proper drainage and prevent pooling of water, especially in climates like St. Louis where ice can form. Initial design and construction methods of concrete sidewalks greatly impact the long-term maintenance and lifespan of sidewalks. Your sidewalk may not have been designed with water drainage in mind, or nature may have taken its natural course resulting in drainage problems. We can help regardless of the cause of your sidewalk water drainage problem.

Sidewalk drainage problems can develop for several reasons. The cause of the problem ultimately determines the best solution to fix the problem. Oftentimes concrete walkways are bordered by grass or curbing which prevents water from quickly draining. This leads to water puddling on your walkway. Installing an underground french drain system will allow the water from the walkway to quickly drain into the pipe where it can drain to a safe location.

Experienced in both residential sidewalk draining and commercial sidewalk drainage services, Buchheit Construction is happy to accommodate our customer’s project, no matter the size. Our portfolio consists of pouring new concrete structures — from decorative finishes, stamped and colored concrete to standard curbs and sidewalks for cities and subdivisions, to repair and replacement of concrete structures. Other concrete structures, such as large retaining walls, patios and driveways are typically included in most projects we complete for our customers throughout the St. Louis metropolitan area.

With sidewalk erosion control, you not only get great looks but functionality as well. Our sidewalk erosion control service gives you:

Whether it’s commercial or residential, a safe sidewalk is a must. Our erosion control measures will ensure that your sidewalk is free from bumps and dips, as well as the surrounding areas.
Once a sidewalk is properly setup with erosion control, it’s virtually maintenance free. Erosion is controlled which keeps your concrete and the surrounding area looking as well as it did the day it was poured.
Puddles are not only annoying, but they can be dangerous as well. In the winter, ice patches can form on your sidewalks creating a hazard. Proper erosion control diverts water away from your sidewalk surface, preventing sagging and cracking which creates low areas for puddles to form, making for a smooth and puddle free walkway.
Sidewalks can serve a variety of purposes, and our methods of sidewalk construction and erosion control ensure that you can expand and utlize your sidewalks to the fullest.
Sidewalk erosion control adds a permanent value to your home or business, and is one of the few additions that can be considered an investment.
