Edward Roydes and Darren Wakelen worked for a small family run business which later merged to become a National Company. In March 2010, after 13 years and eighteen years service respectively, they left their former employment and set up their own drainage company based in Swaffham and Norwich, Norfolk.

The aim of Eastern Drainage Services is to supply a high quality service with accurate CCTV surveys and quality repair solutions, but with a focus on that ‘personal touch’ together with a speedy response.

Eastern Drainage Services Ltd

Their main customers are structural engineers investigating movement/subsidence and house buyers or vendors where surveyors have recommended a drainage investigation.

The idea behind the fixed fee investigation was to reassure potential customers that there will be no add-ons for additional time on site or other services that may be required to complete the investigation such as cleaning or testing. In short, Eastern Drainage Services are a local and refreshingly honest company.

Darren and Edward’s previous employer specialised working directly for insurance companies and this included assessing which claims should be covered by insurers. As such they have an excellent and detailed knowledge of which drainage problems may be covered by your buildings insurance.
