“My only hesitation was in some post-project follow-up. It became difficult to have an ongoing dialogue with the company after being done with the project. At the end of the day, Drainage and Erosion Solutions fully addressed my concerns and at no cost, which I greatly appreciate. There was a period of time that involved a number of calls back and forth.”

“We had a regrading project, which was tricky to accomplish due to the landscape specifics. Mark Lane and his team worked relentlessly to make everything work well. After a year, and a few severe rainfalls, we are happy with the results of our regrading project.”

“I had some big projects done and the crew members were good. It was a little difficult to get in touch with the engineer. It was really expensive. I had other bids and not sure if I should have taken a lower bid until the increase of cost was justified.”

“Jesse and the Drainage and Erosion Solutions Team provided excellent drainage services for our yard. They were extremely professional, on-time, efficient, and responsive to our requests. We experience major water runoff from our neighbors yards into our yard, and the drainage system they put in place has performed beautifully over the past year. All water is captured and diverted effectively and appropriately. The mud pit is gone and we can finally have a healthy lawn again!”

“Drainage and Erosion Solutions solved our drainage problem. They seemed to know exactly what we needed to do, quoted a fair price and did all the work for that price including cleaning part of the existing system that was plugged.”

“We live on hard almost impervious clay soil like many in DC. DESF came out and inspected our property after we noticed several significant drainage problems and had a couple of water intrusions in our basement. They were recommended by the contractor who helped fixed the water damage. We had to wait awhile because they are very busy and appointments were booked out multiple weeks in advance. Everyone I interacted with was courteous and helpful. The proposed solutions were comprehensive and ultimately the work was completed professionally and on schedule. Problems solved. Would highly recommend.”

“We had a "spkngey" backyard after heavy rains for about 16 years. After researching numerous companies this last year, we decided to hire Drainage and Erosion Solutions Fairfax. We are very happy with our dry backyard thanks to the French drain system they installed. We have recommended Drainage and Erosion Solutions company to several people via Next Door app.”

“The work is not completed correctly. After only 3 months we are experiencing subsidence due to settling of the pavers on our driveway likely due to inadequate substrate preparation. I had to make 2 emails to our point of contact and then an email to the office to get attention to the matter. There was a promise to come out to fix it 13 Aug 21 but the crew did not show and we were not notified of that nor given any statement of when they will arrive to complete the work.”

“This is specialized work and they obviously have lots of varied experience. I stayed close by to follow what they were doing and warn them away from potential mistakes - but I do that with all workmen. The crew was very responsive and easy to work with.”

“Drainage and Erosion receives my highest recommendation - excellent work, value, and communication! They went above and beyond to ensure that all of my issues were fixed and even took the time to go over the project details with my concerned neighbor. Despite there being many downpours since the work was completed, my basement remains bone dry without a hint of any leakage anywhere!”

“The work was completed as described in the contract right on time. The team of workers were very professional, kind, caring, thorough in all the work. The workers cared about what they did. I would recommend this team. Greg Dolan was the supervisor-Carlos was the crew boss his team work excellently with him. Greg was thorough in his checking on the job he and Carlos cared about the finished product. We are very satisfied. The office staff were great to keep us informed and answer questions before work started. I have already referred several peopls.”

“I do not recommend. I chose this company due to their perceived experience and initial consultation. I paid a premium price, more than other quotes, for the main portion of the job that fell short of my expectations due to lack of communication and engineering from the PM. The PM never informed me of any initial concerns or potential shortfalls due to the existing environment, nor was any thought process shared with me into how the installation would go. I expected better.”

“I am not yet sure whether the waterproofing works. Only time will tell. What I am sure of is that Jesse and his boss are dishonest. When the job was completed, Jesse agreed that the crew had broken one of my planters. He insisted that I not deduct the cost of the planter from the balance due and that he would send me a check for the cost of the planter. Only after I contacted his boss and threatened to expose the fact that the company had a suspended business license, did I receive a check about a month later. In addition, Jesse promised to fix a limestone tile his crew broke, plant some ground cover that the crew destroyed, and, if I purchased a shrub to replace one they removed, plant it for me. None of that happened.”

“DES solved a drainage issue that had been ongoing for 20 years. Our builder should have installed a storm drain between our yard and a neighbor's yard, as storm water would carry debris like neighborhood leaves and grass clippings onto our yard, creating a dam that would overflow and threaten flooding of our basement. We would have to remove the dam every few months to allow for drainage. As a solution, DES built an attractive rock drain inlet that collected the storm water and moved it underground to a rock stream they designed that moved the water to a community storm drain. After the first big rain storm showed that the solution needed some additional work like using atrium drain covers and deepening the rock inlet, they came out promptly to make the required adjustments. The drain they put in has performed exactly the way we expected. Their focus on customer satisfaction was so impressive that we engaged them for another project to improve drainage around our house and install stone steppers to improve access to parts of the yard. Again, that work was done right and we are completely satisfied. David Arias, the estimator and project manager, knows what he is doing and made sure we were happy with the projects DES installed for us.”

“We had D & ES out 3 times. The initial install consisted of the french drains all along the fence line. We then had them out again to install some more drains and fix areas that were no draining correctly. We had a ton of water build up. At this point, we weren't satisfied w/ the work. Rick and his crew came out a 3rd time and made some additional changes and we now have a nice dry lawn. Third time is a charm i guess.”

“We gave D&ES a job that had two features (stabilizing a stone wall, controlling erosion) that were somewhat out of the ordinary. They were able to come up with solutions and put them into effect.”

“DES completed an effective plan to address drainage issues affecting 4 areas of our yard. The work involved French drains, buried conduits and an extensive dry creek enlargement.”

“They came in and did the work - very professional and I have gotten compliments from neighbors on the quality of the stonework on the yard.”

“Absolutely. Everything on the project was managed very well. I even had to have the team back to fix a leak found 6 months after the initial work was done and the repair was completed under the warranty without question or hesitation.”

“I was impressed with Drainage and Erosion Solutions from the time Greg came out to give me an estimate. He explained in detail what the issue was and how French drains would resolve it. When they came out to do the work, the crew was courteous, efficient and went above and beyond to make sure the yard looked even better than it did when they came out. The grass has grown back and we have not had another lake form in the back yard since!”

“Drainage and Erosion Solutions resolved flooding that had been happening since we bought our property 5 years ago. Every heavy rain resulted in water on our first floor. We had tried several other, cheaper solutions that were ultimately a waste of money. What I liked best about Drainage and Erosion is the clear focus on keeping water out of the house (vs. a sump pump to remove water that has entered). We have been dry for a year and are very grateful.”
