Sinkhole Mayhem!

Updated: Feb 21, 2020

With all of this rain lately, homeowners are faced with unfortunate problems ranging from flooding to sinkholes especially in older homes. Here in Silverton, this homeowner had a sinkhole in their driveway caused by an old deteriorated clay downspout drain. When it would rain the rainwater would carry the soil out through the pipe creating a void until eventually the driveway collapsed. The old pipe was sealed and abandoned and another drain was created to prevent this from happening again. As for the driveway, the hole was filled and compacted with crushed stone and cold patch was applied for the fix. Remember, DSR Builders LLC is here to help you with any problems or projects you face.
