Welcome - Advanced Drainage Solutions


Here in Atlanta and throughout Georgia, we get a lot of rain. For too many homeowners, heavy rain also means pooling, flooding, and even water on the interior of their homes. Some homeowners have tried stop-gap measures or even paid for water remediation. What they end up with is a solution to the symptom, too much water, and not to the problem, inadequate drainage. Sump pumps, downspout extensions, and other attempts to control water don’t get to the source of the issue. That’s why TrustDALE is proud to welcome Advanced Drainage Solutions to the TrustDALE Circle of Excellence. Advanced Drainage Solutions gets to the heart of the problem, creating real drainage solutions built to last a lifetime.

Standing, Pooling, or Flooding Water

We all get puddles outside our homes when it rains. But sometimes the water can get to be more than just a puddle. Standing water outside your home can block driveways and even entrances to your home. Pooling water can make it hard to get in and out of your home. Flooding water may even destroy your lawn or garden.

When water is standing, pooling, or flooding outside your home, there are a few different underlying problems. There may be improper grading that is directing water toward your home or lawn, instead of away from it. Or there just may be inadequate stormwater drainage. Depending on the root cause, there are several possible solutions.

The primary goal is always stormwater collection and drainage. In a storm or heavy rain, the water needs to be gathered in one area and drained away from that area. If the water is collecting in an area you don’t want it to, Advanced Drainage Solutions can restructure the land to force water away from the problem area and toward your drainage solution. They can even add landscaping and hardscaping as needed.

Once the water is collected in the area you want, you’ll need sufficient drainage to move the water off of your property and into municipal storm drains, creeks, or other drainage areas. Advanced Drainage Solutions can install custom french drains, dry creek beds, new grades, swales, and other high-quality drainage solutions to move water away from your home.

Excellent Service

Advanced Drainage Solutions has been in the business of helping prevent unwanted water collection for over 25 years. Back in 1991, a 15-year-old Matt Schaltenbrand purchased a power washer and started a business cleaning people’s homes and gutters. Now, more than a quarter-century later, Advanced Drainage Solutions is a business run entirely by tax-paying W2 employees—no subcontractors—many of whom have been working together for a decade or more. Much more than a gutter cleaning company, Advanced Drainage Solutions has expanded into a business offering the very best in drainage solutions for every situation.
