All catch basins/storm drains will either settle or deteriorate over time. This is because as water enters the joints between the steel casting and block or the mortar joints, it causes the water to disintegrate the mortar.
When this happens, especially during the colder months, the water will expand and contract causing the mortar to “pop out”.
In addition, cracks will sometimes appear around the perimeter of the storm drains and allow water to infiltrate the casting.
Our rehabilitation services can be as simple as patching the asphalt around the perimeter with a quick mortar repair, to an in-depth scope of complete structure rebuild.
