Standard Water is often called upon to provide multiple services for a homeowner. It’s not uncommon for a customer to request both basement waterproofing and basement foundation repair. We’ll install our exclusive basement waterproofing system and, if the basement walls are bowing we’ll install carbon kevlar straps.
The most effective of the interior drainage systems (according to the University of Minnesota) is rigid drain pipe installed inside the footing at a continuous downward slope to the sump pit from where it is pumped away from the foundation. Our system is unique to Standard Water Control and comes with a warranty good for the life of your foundation. The warranty will transfer to new owners if you ever decide to sell.
As for bowing basement walls, we use the most advanced foundation stabilization product on the market today–carbon fiber straps from Fortress Stabilization Systems–for the most elegant, least intrusive solution for foundation stabilization. Carbon fiber is stronger than steel. It doesn’t rust or mildew and is not susceptible to alkali deterioration. In the construction industry, carbon fiber technology has replaced old style methods of structural reinforcement for bridge construction, building rehabilitation, foundation reinforcement and more.
