Solving Water Issues with Experience and Common Sense


Basement Leaks, Foundation Repairs, Waterproofing, Drainage Systems

After working for traditional “ waterproofing” companies over the past 15 years, I have literally looked at thousands of homes with every water issue imaginable! And, in solving water problems, I know experience is everything. If I can see how the home is built and where the water is coming in, then I can explain how the water is coming in and the best options of how to fix the problem. With water problems, there is usually more than one way to address the issue. Typically, water proofers want to address it after it comes in, rather than keep it out or perform drainage first. That is how Drainage First came about — to provide homeowners a common sense, cost-effective option that was lacking in the industry. Builders create a lot of water issues by taking shortcuts on drainage and doing improper final grading (putting dirt up against a studded wall). Almost every home in Georgia has underground walls that can be improved with additional drainage and grading. Drainage First offers fast, personal service. As a small business owner, I take a hands-on approach and make all service calls myself. Customers can expect a written estimate the same day, without a long wait time before the work actually begins.

  • French Drains

Atlanta Waterproofing and Storm Drainage Solutions You Can Trust!

At Drainage First I am your first and only point person. Having the person that does the estimate actually supervise the work just makes sense. It eliminates any finger pointing or confusion over the total scope of work. Our customers value this greatly. All of our work comes with a warranty. If what you're hearing from big water proofers doesn’t quite feel right, give us a call and get a second opinion.
