Broken Water Main Brooklyn Dirty Water

No one can plan for a broken water main. But the water main company you call when it does happen can make all the difference. While a broken water main is of utmost concern, seeking a quick fix can sometimes lead to hiring the wrong company for the job. Luckily, for this incident, the Balkan Team was called, and we repaired a broken water main on Court Street in downtown Brooklyn.

We responded with next day service to address the situation with careful coordination and teamwork. While a timely and efficient job is important, other factors are important as well. In this case, that meant leaving the job site in better condition than we found it. The previously porous foundation wall and patch work concrete bus pad was mended and restored to meet code compliance. As many homeowners know, contractors are known to say “That’s how we found it” as an excuse for not correcting a glaring condition. That is simply not the Balkan way; as our goal is to exceed your expectations.
