“The french drain and pipe they put in was too small. Doesn't effectively catch/slow the water. They tied gutters underground as well. The caps to the pipes above ground consistently fall off. We spent a TON of money and are not satisfied. I've had 2 more contractors look at it to say the drain and pipes are too small.”

Review by

“They did everything we expected. We had not planned to do the small patio initially, and when we talked about it Pat was able to understand what we wanted, and it came out beautifully. Also, they had done a little walkway with some leftover flagstone that we had, and I was not happy with it. I spoke with Pat about it, and he came out and reset them, and I was very happy with it.”

“They excavated underneath my deck and treated the pressure treated wood with water repellent. They also regraded and did stonework under the deck. They rerouted my sump pump to get it away from my deck. They also buried/removed 5 gutter downspouts to carry water away from the house.”

“The primary reason for me calling was to stop the water from seeping into my crawl space. I don't know what will happen once the ground is frozen and we get the spring thaw, but to date what they did in terms of redirecting water flow after a heavy down pour has worked.”

“No problem. They put in a foundation drain. It was about 20, 30 feet long. I didn't have any problems. The workers were fine. I didn't have any problems with them. They came and did the work. I actually added some work to the job, and the gentleman who was running the job didn't have any problem with that, and they went out and found some more stuff and the guys put it all in and I'm very happy. I'll give them an A.”

Review by
08/12/2017

“They resealed a wall in the basement and re-routed the drainage from the roof. It was a positive experience because they came quickly, did what they said they were going to do and charged me what they said they were going to charge. I would grade the overall experience with an A. I would very likely recommend them to friends and colleagues.”

Review by
08/12/2017

“It was very positive. They dug a ditch around a part of our house and had to seal up the holes in the foundation, and then they redid a brick patio. He gave me a more competitive price, and they got the work done very quickly and they did a nice job. I'd give them an A. They did a nice job. I would highly recommend them.”

Review by

“They did great work. They did some drainage work for us, and also installed a flagstone patio. I'd give them an A.”

Review by

“They seemed very professional. They got the job done quickly. They didn't try to sell me services beyond what was needed. They were honest about that. They helped waterproof the basement. They put a drain in outside. I'd give them an A.”

Review by

“They did great work because they fixed the problem. There hadn't been a flood in my backyard since they put the drain in there. I would grade the overall experience with an A. I would highly recommend them.”

Review by

“It was a year ago. They did a good job. It was good workmanship and solved a significant problem I had of water drainage. They had a creative solution. They delivered. I'll say they deserve an A.”

Review by

“It was straightforward approach with them, and they delivered on what they said they were going to do. They just provided some drainage solutions. Everything is working. I would give them an A.”

Review by

“They were great. They were timely. I felt like the cost was reasonable. They were friendly and did excellent work, and I never had them to come out to fix anything. They worked on the drainage system. I would grade the overall experience with an A+. I would highly recommend them.”

Review by
08/01/2017

“The drain was dug and installed in less than a day, it was so fast, and it worked wonderfully. They were fast, they came out right away because we were on such a crush time, and they were very accommodating. I would grade the overall experience with an A. As far as I know about the quality of work, the first big rain after the drain was installed, I didn't have to go out and install a pump and a hose out to the street to keep it from going into the garage. I would highly recommend them, and have recommended them right away.”

“To give you a background: I was selling my mother's house, and this was one of the items identified by the new owner to be corrected, because when it was raining there was a vent in the very front of the house and a vent in the back and there was some water that was getting in because they were exposed. The water was coming in, so they came and put a little plastic cover on the front of the house because there was ground there where they could easily put in this plastic. It was like a little box to cover over the vent in the front. But in the back, the back vent is actually built into the cement patio, and so they weren't really able to put a similar cover back there. It wasn't such an issue in the back, because the patio was covered, and then they also put in a French drain to drain the back of the yard. There was a Magnolia bush, and they did some work around the Magnolia bush. I don't know if they put a drain in or what, but then they put the pipe out and then it hooked it up with a French drain. I was selling the house for my mother. I'm her power of attorney. The new owner would be the one who would be living with the actual results in the house. I put it in as a condition that she requested this drainage system to be implemented, because my parents lived there and both had dementia. My father has passed and my mother is in a facility for dementia patients. They lived there since '63 and they moved out. My father passed in 2013, and then my mother fell and hurt her hip in 2013, and it's been either the hospital or the facility ever since. We stepped in, my brother and I. He turned over power of attorney because he has kidney failure, but now I have cancer. I didn't mean to get into so much detail, but recently I lost the balance in my leg, so I've been having some major medical issues myself. We worked with the real estate agent, Mr. P. Sullivan, and he recommended the place. The erosion — I forgot the name of the company. He knew the owner or someone at the very top management level and he really respected him and his opinion, and so I just went with what he recommended because he was the real estate agent. I contracted with them and they came and they researched what the issue and problems were, and they identified the problems. I was a little disappointed that they couldn't come up with something to put on the back patio, but they said they just didn't have anything that they would have to handmake it, handcraft it. The issue was more the drainage in the backyard too with the French drain. They did put in a pop-up drain too in the front that helped alleviate water gushing down from the gutter near the driveway, so they did put that pop-up drain in there as well. They explained to me what was going on. The house had been vacant for a while, and we put in upgrades and renovations and fixed it up because it had gone into disrepair a lot — the wiring — had to put in an electric panel. Upgrade from fuse box to circuit breaker and then a chimney. Had to get major work done on that, but I don't know what the end results were because I don't live in the house. The settlement was May 17, 2017, so the new owner. I haven't had any contact with her or even the real estate agent since the settlement, but I've also been sick. I don't know. I haven't heard anything. I didn't see after a week, after we sold it if it worked or if she still had issues. I'm only basing it on their initial assessment of the problem at hand and their solutions to correct the issue and to improve the water drainage, and they seemed very efficient. It was raining a lot. I remember they had to postpone it to come out. They couldn't. They had to get permission from the utility company to make sure they didn't dig up any gas pipes or anything, do any destruction.”

“Pat was very responsive. He returned all the calls, and they did the thing and they were on time all the time. They did some French drains for us. That was it. Basically, they did French drains and recommended a solution for us that worked finally for us to do part of the work with a third-party contractor that they don't do the French drains and they don't do driveways. They put some pipes underneath our driveways. We get the solutions that work for us, and we were able to coordinate with more contractors with our time and everything. I'd give them an A-. There were some minor things that they had to augment to complete. They did. No question. It's just would have been nice to remind them about minor details. They're always on time.”

“We're going to be using them again. Everything made them positive. They gave us a reasonable price. They did a very good job. The work is effective and it looks good, and they're pleasant and easy to deal with. We had some water issues in the yard right behind the house and they did several things. They put in French drains. They connected the sump pump out below to something underground, and then after they were done with all the work, they put down sod and they put some decorative stones next to the patio where we were having a water problem. So, they left it all looking very nice, much better than it looked before. I'd give them an A. I think they came on the right day, and they were done when I expected them to be done.”

Review by

“He had done earlier work, and it just needed cleaning and the addition of some rocks to it. Cleaned a stone drainage ditch. Everything is working up to expectations. I would grade the overall experience with a B. I would highly recommend them, and have already recommended them.”

Review by

“They did what they said they were going to do. If they're popular enough they can charge a $150 estimate fee. They dug out under a stairwell and backfilled it, eroding underneath of it, and re-channeled drain water away from the spot that was causing the problem. I'd give them an A overall.”

Review by
07/13/2017

“They did two pieces of work for me. One just recently and I've been satisfied with both. The first was doing some waterproofing and drainage around a basement area; and the second one was doing some drainage repair around a driveway culvert which was damaged by a vehicle. I'd give them an A rating.”

Review by
07/13/2017

“They did do some work for us last year. We had a great experience with them, very positive. Out of all the people we talked to they were just one, very knowledgeable. They were there on time. They were finished within the time they told me. They did exactly what they said they were going to do, and it actually has worked perfectly. We had a garage that was at the bottom of the hill that water was just running into it, and we had them install a drain all the way across the front of the garage so that the water would drain out and then drain around further down the hill in the grass. I would give them an A. If somebody needed that done, I would recommend them if on the extreme side.”

“I had a very positive experience with Drainage & Erosion Solutions. I enjoyed the actual professional work that they did. Their craftsmanship was really good, the speed in which they did it, and the professionalism of the sales team or the lead, the representative. They were able to give me a breakdown of what my issues were and what I needed to do to make updates. That was great. I had to reset the drain from my egress window well to the drain to my sump pump pipe in the basement. They also created a French drain down the back side of my home and tapped in my downspouts to the French drain so that everything could drain away from my home. It was good. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
07/13/2017

“They were good about coming and doing the estimate quickly and giving me a good explanation as to what they felt they needed to do. So, they did a great job as far as coming out quickly, doing the estimate, being thorough about it. And then on the day of the work, they actually showed up on time. The supervisor came, explained exactly what they were going to do and made sure that his crew boss knew exactly where things were supposed to be put in and how it was supposed to all hook together. He came back later and followed up to verify everything had been done correctly and to my satisfaction. Overall, a positive experience. The workers were good. They did everything that they were supposed to do in a timely manner. I could actually watch as the day went on and see how things were going. I asked a couple questions during the day when I wasn’t sure if this is quite right — they were very good at explanations and making sure everything was correct. I had them put in, so we have four downspouts. One belonged to the neighbors and three that are ours, and we had them connect them together to run underground to two pop-up drains. It's an A+. They picked everything up, and they left the area better than when they started. They did some grading to make it look nice to work better around our patio. Good job.”

Review by
07/13/2017

“They thought the job was going to be smaller than it was, but they handled it, and even when the job got much bigger, they stuck with it. They kept the team here as long as it took to get it done. The work that they did to waterproof our basement has been perfect. They had to trench the whole back of the house, seal up a crack in the foundation, add more waterproofing and then they came back and treated it in order to keep the water running away from the house. I would grade the overall experience with an A. I would extremely likely recommend them.”

Review by
07/13/2017

“Dave worked pretty well with pricing and had some good ideas on what needed to be done, and it looked good when it was all done and it seemed to work pretty well. They put in a perimeter French drain to collect a lot of the water in my backyard. I'd probably grade them an A. They had to come back. There were some punch card items that before they were done, I said, ‘Hey, it's got to be fixed.’ They didn't catch it the first time, but they were more than willing to come back and do it the second time.”

Review by
07/13/2017

“Drainage & Erosion Solutions did exactly what we needed them to do. Our basement had a wall that was getting wet all the time and it caused mold, and so they did a drainage ditch and eradicated the mold. I'd grade it an A+. They worked with us when we were kind of in a desperate situation, because we were selling our house and the home inspector caught that. We did not know it because we had shelves back there, and when the shelves were moved, that's when we saw the wet wall and the mold.”

Review by
07/13/2017

“It was wonderful. They were the best. There were no problems since they did work for us. They completely regarded our backyard and added a bunch of drains. We were having a problem with standing water after not much rain, and we actually ended up having our basement flood because of it, so we had them come in and they completely regarded, re-sodded, and added a bunch of drains to our backyard. They did not waterproof my basement. I'd give them an A+ rating.”
