Contact Drainage First

Drainage First at it’s core is the cost effective, common sense alternative to the large waterproofing companies. Large waterproofing companies believe the way to fix all basement leaks is to install what they “sell,” which is an inside drain system that catches the water after it comes in. We address the true problem which is the storm water building up against the underground walls. They believe there is no such thing as a small job or just fixing the immediate problem. We do! We know if you do everything on the outside to drain the storm water away from the home first, it will reduce if not stop water from coming into the basement and crawlspace. We also solve ponding – standing water in yards or excessive water coming from the neighbor's property or the street if it's higher. With over 15 years of experience looking at and solving water issues of all kinds, there is nothing we haven't seen. When you call Drainage First you will be meeting the owner, not just another salesman trying to sell you what they sell. Being a smaller firm we meet with you right away and provide you a written detailed estimate on the spot. We have the capability to get the job done fast as well. The large waterproofing companies can't say that, just read the reviews. We only do outside repairs focused on keeping the water out, not catching it after it comes in!

We at Drainage First offer comprehensive services to solve all storm water issues, no matter where they are or how big. Not only do we fix water leaks but we install proactive systems to drain water away from your home. We also install floor supports to address sagging and bouncing floors, crawlspace clean outs and cost-effective vapor barriers. As a hands-on owner what our customers value is a business owner who isn't going to try and sell something that doesn't give value. The same person that comes up with the solution also runs the crew to perform the work to solve the problem. It's rare to have someone with more than 15 years of experience solving water issues and installing the work coming to every one who calls Drainage First! All of our work is done “by hand.” Simply said we only dig by hand, no large equipment. When things are done carefully everyday, you get very good at it and you can barely tell we were there installing drain lines in your yard. All we do is solve water issues and install drain systems. You can't say that about landscapers trying to do drainage systems. The products we use cannot be bought at the local home improvement store. We will let you know about all the product options and let you decide what is best for you. We give options. We also warranty all our repairs because they work! Should you experience a leak in your basement or crawlspace or know you have bad drainage in your yard, call Drainage First and have the peace of mind you will be meeting with the owner who has looked at thousands of situations like yours. You will understand why and what to do to solve your concerns. You will receive a written estimate on the spot. If you move forward, the work will be overseen by the same person who came up with the solution, at a fraction of the cost the other guys offer.
