Stormy weather – the low-down on drainage

Autumn is barely upon us, yet already we've experienced storm warnings and flash flooding in parts of the UK. High levels of rain caused problems over the summer too, with violent thunderstorms hitting many counties including Cornwall, where flood waters caused havoc in the village of Coverack.

Compared to the devastation seen in India and the USA this month, our weather issues may seem relatively minor. Yet if your home or business has ever been flooded, you'll know that it's a truly devastating experience, whether a single street has been affected or a whole city.

With climate change expected to cause more extreme weather in the coming decades, the issue of adequate drainage has never been more important to the construction industry. Architects and builders recognise the importance of installing efficient, reliable drainage infrastructure, whether the project is a new road, a housing estate or a block of offices.

Drainage may not seem like the most exciting element of a construction project. It's mostly underground, for starters, so no-one is going to stand back and admire your work once it's finished! Yet get this right, using the most durable products on the market, and you are more likely to keep your project on track and save money in the long run.

At Rudridge, we're proud to work with leading housing developers, ground workers and contractors to supply a comprehensive selection of drainage products. Our extensive range features all the leading manufacturers such as Wavin, Polypipe, ACO, CPM, Milton Precast and Stanton Bonna. Drainage products are available in concrete, clay and UPVC from our depots at Brentford, Farnham, Horsham and Gravesend. And as you'd expect from a company whose motto is 'Trust us to deliver', we can deliver your order to locations across the UK. 

There's more information about the drainage products we stock here on our website, and in our product guide. If you have any questions at all, don't hesitate to contact us via your local branch.
