  • At the beginning of August we installed one of our waterproofing systems at a home in Minneapolis for a nice lady named Jodi. Her foundation walls were made of the typical cement block we see every day and, because the home was built in 1911, we also had stone walls to contend with. Jobs like these are no problem, we know how to handle ‘em. In this case, after installing the drain tile (and our patented Diamond Drainage Board) we installed our Diamond Brite Vapor Guard; which will direct any moisture coming through the wall into the system; where it will be collected in the sump basket and pumped away from the house. We received high marks from the homeowner after the job was done; from our sales person to the crew working in her home. When asked why she chose Standard Water over our competitors Jodi replied … “The salesman was not pushy and did not talk badly about their competition.” She said she had a “million” questions for our crew foreman, Ed, and was impressed with his patience. Jodi gave us top marks for Quality, Responsiveness, Punctuality and Professionalism; and, in her closing comments said Standard Water was … “Highly, highly recommended.” Since 1977 we’ve provided homeowners with peace of mind. If we can be of any help to you, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
