Corrugated Steel Culvert Pipes and Accessories
Certified Products now stocks and sells corrugated steel, galvanized and aluminum culvert pipe for your landscaping projects. Typically, culverts are used to allow water to pass from one side of a road or driveway to the other side. Here in southeastern Wisconsin they can also be used to equalize ponds, marshes, and large culverts can even allow cows and other livestock to roam freely underneath roads.
Driveway culverts allow water to flow freely along the drainage ditch near the roadway. If a culvert fails or is clogged, flooding will occur in your yard and possibly carry over into your street. This is extremely prevalent in the spring when the winter snow is melting. Failing driveway culverts are also problematic during other seasons here in Waukesha, Washington, Milwaukee and Jefferson counties. Pools of stagnate water are breeding grounds for mosquitos and other summer pests.
Metal End Sections
We also carry metal end sections for your culvert pipes. These metal end sections will give your driveway culvert a nice finished look to your driveway and drainage ditch.
Benefits of using metal end sections:
- Improves water flow
- Blends well with your surroundings
- Debris collection at the end of the culvert are reduced
- Promotes easier lawn mowing and snow removal
Installing your driveway culvert is usually simple, but you may need to check with your city to see if additional permits are needed. Here in New Berlin, you are recommended to call the Engineering department prior to any culvert work. Culverts - Proper Use and Installation written by the Wisconsin Transportation Information Center.
