"Problem, Cause, Solution" ... our unique three step approach to
assessing and solving site drainage problems. Created by our
principal drainage engineer, Greg Budnik, P.E., (our owner and
state-licensed hydraulic & hydrologic engineer and former HOA
president, board member and condo officer himself during his 25 years
as an engineer in Northern Virginia), this method of assessment has
been successfully used by our firm to properly identify and resolve
drainage problems efficiently and effectively for over two decades for
hundreds of communities in the Washington Metro area.

- For non-emergency situations, one of our engineers will contact
you within 24 hours to review
the request and schedule the consultation. Consultations are
usually available within five working days or less, though emergencies
can be scheduled, in most cases as quickly as the following day.
- The day of the consultation, our engineer will meet with your
Association's representative(s) at the site and confirm and quantify
the problem, properly identify the cause and recommend / discuss
appropriate solutions as well as estimate a preliminary cost of the
options. The entire consultation is recorded on a digital audio
recorder (ready-to-play, PC-compatible ".wma" file format) for your
Board's, contractor's and Association's future reference (unless your
Association declines this option).
- Digital photographs and video clips (both in ready-to-play,
PC-compatible formats) are taken to document the conditions at the time
of the consultation.
- A PC-compatible CD of the photos, videos, audio recording and
invoice for services is delivered to your Association within 48 hours. Our fee is due at the time of CD delivery, by check.
