About Well Drilling in the Fraser Valley
Fraser Valley Well Drilling drills water wells 12 months of the year, drilling a water well during the winter months is a great time to drill for many properties. All to often properties owners wait for the hot summer months to drill, by this time they are generally out of water or hauling water because their well has gone permanently dry.
Drilling for water during the summer may also be best for some properties for several reasons, one is the issue of access - it’s not always possible to access a property during the wet season.
The cost to drill a well may also be less during the slower seasons, Fraser Valley Well Drilling offers reduced well drilling rates throughout the winter, contact us to learn more about our winter well drilling rates!
