“DES did a great job installing a French drain and waterproofing several exterior walls of our basement”

Review by
10/17/2020

“My need for Drainage and Erosion Solutions (DES) occurred after several hard rains produced water seepage in my basement. Rob Reckmeyer from DES came to my house to advise me on possible solutions; and his advice was better-explained, more logically sound, and more economical than any previous advice I had received from other waterproofing companies. Rob's customer care was off-the-charts-fantastic due to his constant availability, prompt responses to messages I left him, patience in answering my many questions, and overall friendliness and care. And the best part?: I have had many hard rains since this job was done a year ago and NEVER again experienced water seepage in my basement nor standing water in my yard. Thanks, DES and especially ROB RECKMEYER!”

“Drainage and Erosion Solutions installed a full drainage system for us in January 2020. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a comprehensive drainage solution. Great to work with, hard-working, beautiful thorough workmanship, cleaned up after they were done, and most importantly: they solved our drainage issues! They wrote up the estimate and hand-delivered it, and then were available to walk through any questions I had at any time. We revised the contract back and forth a couple times, and then launched the project at the beginning of 2020 (fortunately before any of the COVID stuff started happening). Their amazing crews worked daily (in the rain, no less!!), hand digging trenches, building window wells by hand, removing vegetation, lifting off the boards of the deck one-by-one (and later replacing them), and then waterproofing, compacting, and regrading all by hand. Our issue was that our basement had flooded with the big July 8, 2019 downpours (500-year rain events), overwhelming our sump pump, gutters, window wells, and existing drainage systems. Since they installed the new window wells, french drain, swale, sump pump, and connected our downspouts, we have had absolutely ZERO issues, even with some super intense rains this year. AND - they also made it look beautiful. Our yard has never looked so good after they removed a bunch of the trees/bushes/weeds, mulched everything, and most especially: built us a beautiful swale/pathway with thick, durable, beautiful stone pavers. Our only complaint is that the window well covers were not as good as the rest of the workmanship, but we are still hoping to get those replaced. We would highly recommend Drainage & Erosion Solutions, and especially Jesse, Greg, Hernan & Justo who we had the pleasure of working with.”

“My likelihood to recommend Drainage and Erosion Solutions really depends on what the specific project demands. I cannot recommend them for all the components of the work they did for me.”

“We and several of our neighbors have used Drainage and Erosion Solutions to address some serious drainage and erosion problems. We have now had a couple of hard rains since they completed the second stage of two major efforts. Problems solved. This is all they do and they are experts. Most landscapers will give you a proposal and estimate but not a warranty. We were impressed with the amount of work they can complete in a short time. They can do the foundation of your home, which they did for us, by applying sealant and replanting plants. Plants that were removed and replanted have lived so they are also qualified in that arena. They did french drains, major swales, lots of stone and it appears to be working. We are very grateful there is such a company.”

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

“The work they did for me, there was a problem with it and when I talked to them about it, they came out, checked it out and they redid the entire job at no cost. So, I thought that was a good thing. They did waterproofing for me. I'd give them a B overall.”

Review by
08/01/2017

“Just call back in a couple of years to see if the water's not coming in. It was okay. The one thing I would recommend is to have somebody who knows the trees, because they pulled some stuff out that it was like trash, and then I found out it was Oak Hydrangeas that should have never been thrown away. But that's me looking at the negatives. Otherwise, it was good. It was just waterproofing around the house. I'd give them an A overall. I don't even remember. This was last year.”

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

“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 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 were easy to work with on financing. They waterproofed our basement and did a few structural repairs. I'd probably say at this point, it's an A. We haven't had any leaks.”

Review by
07/13/2017

“They did a good job and finished the work on schedule and solved our problem. They did subterrain waterproofing on the exterior of the house. I'd give them a B+ overall. I had no complaints with their cleanliness, punctuality or customer service.”
