If you’re planning to remodel your basement we highly recommend taking care of any water problem you have first by installing a basement waterproofing system. That way you can remodel with full confidence and peace of mind that your investment is protected from water intrusion and damage. At a home in Plymouth, Minnesota we not only fixed the water problem but also began the basement renovation by installing two beautiful basement egress windows. Our crew jack hammered the basement floor 18 inches from the wall and dug a trench sloped toward the sump basket. Then they installed rigid PVC drain tile surrounded by a gravel field that acts as a filter medium to keep dirt out of the system. When the drain tile is installed in this way you don’t ever have to worry about the system plugging up.The homeowner, The homeowner, Jackie, chose two popular options for additional peace of mind; a battery back-up system, in case the power goes out or the flow of water becomes extreme due to unusually heavy rains, and our buried discharge system so the water discharge pipe wouldn’t be in the way or compete with her landscaping. Finally, we installed two code compliant basement egress windows. How did we do? Jackie gave us top marks across the board for quality, responsiveness, punctuality and professionalism; and went on to say Standard Water provided caring and personal communication along with high quality and workmanship. Her final comment really made us feel good. She said … “I am so happy with the results!” If you have basement remodeling plans, please keep us in mind.
