When Queens sewer service is required, a sewer contractor should be trusted to perform it in a professional manner. That means paying close attention to the needs of his client. Being professional, and providing cost effective service, should apply whether for a typical Queens sewer problem or for specialty sewer service such as described below. This sewer emergency required working around-the-clock. Joseph L. Balkan Inc. prides itself on not dictating the level of sewer service to its customers, but rather responding to their needs. Balkan tailors the sewer service it provides to the requirements of the situation.

Queens Sewer Service – Proper Job Site Set Up

Before Queens sewer work is even started a sewer contractor must take vital steps to ensure a successful and safe installation. If a sewer contractor starts work unsafely or improperly he will usually finish it the same way.

  • Utility companies are notified and carefully mark out the location of their underground facilities.
  • NYC DEP sewer records are requested and reviewed for an accurate installation.
  • All required permits are secured.
  • Areas to be excavated are marked out prior to starting work.
  • Proper and safe traffic patterns and pedestrian safety are ensured.

Sawcutting The Roadway To Save Time

Joseph L. Balkan Inc. employs procedures and specialized equipment, such as roadway sawcutting, that set it apart from how another sewer contractor may approach the very same job. By sawcutting the roadway prior to excavating for this Queens sewer replacement a number of things are accomplished:

  • Time is saved – the customer appreciates that.
  • Noise and dust is kept to a minimum – neighborhood businesses and residents appreciate that.
  • There is less damage to the roadway – the NYC DOT appreciates that.
  • The sewer crew is relieved of heavy jackhammer work and exposure to traffic is kept to a minimum – our valued employees appreciate that.

When a popular restaurant on Bell Boulevard completely loses sewer service time is of the essence, especially when it is the holiday season. Joseph L. Balkan Inc. responded with Queens sewer service performed around-the-clock 24/7,  for 60 hours straight until completion. A sewer contractor has to tailor its service to the needs of its clients, especially one in distress. This client suffered virtually no down-time or loss of business during the peak holiday season.
