Dear Mark

Dear Mark, Thank you for taking care of my mother’s retaining wall. It was difficult for me to manage the work being that I live in Chicago. But having you taken care of my mother really helped me out a lot. I came home to see my mother and saw the beautiful retaining wall you built for her. It looks fantastic! Thanks Jonathan

Hi Mark

I wanted to tell you I’m so glad you installed that Channel Drain in front of my garage. The last good rain we had there wasn’t water pouring under the garage door anymore, hallelujah!


What a great idea to install the channel drain in front of my garage. For years I had to use sandbags to keep the water out of my garage but it still seeped in. I am also glad you installed that Zoeller sump pump it’s quiet and always works.

Hey Universal

Being that I live in San Francisco and my driveway slopes down towards my house makes me so happy you installed the Channel Drain. My garage now stays dry all winter long.

Thank you Universal

Please tell the crew they did an amazing job installing the French Drain around my foundation. For the first time in years during the last rain we didn’t have water pouring in under our house.

Dear Mark

Thanks for installing the French Drain. I never knew a Foundation Drain was really a French Drain. I was really scared when I saw white foam growing out of my foundation in my garage. When my husband was alive he always took care of everything for me so I’m glad I met you. Tell the crew they did a great job.
