  • A few days ago we had a call from Greg in Duluth, MN. We installed a waterproofing system in his home years ago and he was calling to thank us for the job we did. Here are a few things he had to say:

    “Before we had the Standard Water system installed; every time it rained we got water in the basement. But since you guys put it in, way back in 1996, we haven’t had a drop of water since.”

    “They installed the whole thing in one day. That’s just amazing! The crew that did the job was fantastic.”

    “Our neighbors and friends — even the kids — are amazed that we’re the only ones who didn’t get water in their basement after that big flood. We had 10 inches of rain, and the water was rising up against the side of the house but our basement was completely dry. I can’t thank you enough.” 

    “I don’t remember what we paid for it but it was worth it. We couldn’t be happier with the job Standard Water did.”

    “My wife and I would highly recommend Standard Water to anybody and everybody. It’s the smartest thing I’ve ever done.”

    “If you ever want me to talk to anyone about the job Standard Water Control did for us, just have ‘em call me.”

    A river of trash is cresting this week, on its way from basements and garages to landfills in Wisconsin and Cloquet.
    Greg Seaman hauled a diesel engine, a bed spring and a vacuum cleaner out of his mother’s west Duluth basement.
    “The sump pump went out so the whole basement got soaked,” he said. “My mom’s garage got full of mud, so I had to shovel that out for two days.” More>>>
