Sampling of Customer Reviews

“The dogs come in from the backyard without traipsing mud on the floors.”



Robert with Drain Designs did an absolutely fabulous job of fixing our muddy backyard. We fully expected the problem to be just mitigated, not fixed. We are thrilled.

Our backyard was previously unusable; we couldn’t walk along the side of our house nor the area surrounding our patio & backyard without mud boots. Now, even in the midst of rain, we can walk on every square inch of our yard.

The dogs come in from the backyard without traipsing mud on the floors or shaking wet mud on the walls, which HAD been our normal since moving in. Not anymore, Hallelujah!!

Robert was excellent in keeping us posted along the way and we appreciated him tweaking the job as needed based on what he encountered. Two neighbors on one side and another on our other side also used Drain Designs and all of their backyards are all now usable, too.

We seriously couldn’t be more satisfied. From our initial contact with Jeff, working with Hannah to coordinate dates and with Robert’s fantastic installation, Drain Designs delivered beyond & above all expectations by wide margins.

“I would recommend Drain Design to anyone.”



Robert, who installed our drain, was great. He did a great job & it has helped our drainage problem. I would recommend Drain Design to anyone. They are professional, give you detailed information & were right about everything they said was going on with the water pooling in our yard.

“5 years later they fixed it for free. Awesome company!”


Sumi A..

Drain design is excellent. They installed drains around my house 5 years ago and made a huge difference in protecting the foundation around the house and drainage and the ground saturation for the garden and trees around the house.

But more importantly, I didn’t ask them to do the free yearly check, and 5 years later asked if they could inspect it, and they came out for free, found a drain that had gotten buried with foliage and debris, fixed it for free, and offer to come by every few years to check it for me still. Awesome company!

“I have no doubt whatsoever that 
this was money very well spent.”


Bobby G.

It’s been almost 4 years since Drain Designs installed a residential drainage system for my home. Time has proven the worth of my investment. Since the installation, we’ve experienced multiple hurricanes, as well as periods of extremely heavy rains.  After each of these incidents, I have checked my crawlspace, and it is DRY. Quarterly, a pest control company inspects my home and crawlspace. After the recent heavy rains this past winter, they were impressed at how dry the crawlspace was. They told me it was one of the few homes that actually had a dry crawlspace, as they had seen many others in the area with considerable water accumulation and saturation in the crawlspaces. I highly recommend this company. The owner is extremely knowledgeable. After his very thorough, careful review of my property, the system he recommended and installed completely resolved the drainage issues at my home. The team that installed the system was very efficient, professional and neat. They cleaned up their work site each day, neatly organizing their tools out of the way. They were truly the most professional team of workers I have ever encountered in more than 30 years of home ownership. I have no doubt whatsoever that this was money very well spent.

“Kevin, the owner, suggested a way to save $1000!!! Now that’s integrity!”


Cynthia H.

We are so glad we found Drain Designs! Our son’s backyard was a swamp. We were very impressed with Robert (Operations Mgr. and crew chief), who, along with the rest of the crew, worked tirelessly to solve all the problems they encountered. They also did a fantastic job of cleaning up, and of communicating throughout the project. And here’s something amazing. Kevin, the owner, called us partway through and suggested a way to save $1000!!! Now that’s integrity. This is a quality company with friendly and competent staff, years of experience, great products, and top notch customer service. Highly recommend.

“The drainage system is efficient and effective… Extremely satisfied.”


Nancy C.

We were, and still are extremely satisfied with the process and work completed by Drain Design in late June 2018. From the team member providing the quote to the team providing the installation, the DD Team was professional, responsive, and accountable to their planned schedule, process, clean space, and follow through. The DD Team showed up on time, provided email communication very rapidly, and had team members stay late into the day until the job was completed. DD came on the scene to help correct issues unresolved by a previous contractor and we have very extremely happy with the results. The DD design was simpler with improved performance outcomes. Our home is dryer and less prone to soggy ground. The drainage system is efficient and effective. Well worth the money and the investment!! We did explore other options and took reviews into consideration. We wanted to provide this review because DD lives up to their word, work ethic and sincere desire to help the home owner! They genuinely care and their follow through after the work was completed is evidence of that. We had some questions and they came out to instruct us again. Since having this work done, we have had other work done by contractors with less than satisfactory results. DD has spoiled us to expect their style of communication, efficiency, and customer service of all contractors. Having a business of our own, we appreciated the excellent customer service DD provided! Finally, we provided this review well after the work was completed to evaluate the effectiveness of the work. A+++ Well done and thank you!!
