Joined ALD in 2004

Jeff Deel is our franchise owner, along with his wife Trina. He also works as one of our technicians. He has a degree in Mine Engineering and also has training in industrial hygiene. Out in CA, he decided he needed a change of pace and scenery, so he and his wife moved to East Tennessee and took over the franchise in 2004. He always takes the extra time needed to help customers understand their leaks and feel comfortable that they are in good hands. He particularly loves working with utility companies and on municipality jobs. He is committed to giving the most professional, accurate, and courteous service possible.
