I recently had a chance to work with Steve from Standard Water and I can attest to his expertise and knowledge when it comes to basement waterproofing and foundation repair/sump pump systems. Steve had all the answers to my questions, and was really a nice and genuine guy to work with as well as very responsive in his communications. I would definitely work with Steve again in the future and highly recommend him. –Bob Vance

Yesterday (12/13) Rob from Standard Water Control Systems came to service my newly installed (6/21) sump pump, that I had called and reported to them that I heard a constant humming sound coming from the sump pump. When I called to report this concern, Heidi, in the office, was so very kind, and took me through what I needed to do in shutting off the pump until someone came to check the problem. That was on Friday, and she stated that someone would be here at approximately 9 am, on Monday. Rob came on Monday, promptly, and took care of the problem. He was so very knowledgeable, and Kind. I was very impressed with Rob and his ability to take care of my sump pump problem so easily. Thank you to Rob, Heidi, and the entire team that installed my water control system in July. You are to be commended for your professionalism and excellent customer service!! Geraldine Bares South St. Paul, MN.  –Geri Bares

Standard Water Basement Solutions

St. Paul Radon Mitigation and Radon Testing

Our solutions aren’t limited to visible problems like a wet basement or moldy crawlspace. We also solve invisible basement problems in St. Paul, MN. Radon mitigation, specifically, is a safety concern in many homes. Have your home tested for radon with a $10-$25 home testing kit or by a 3rd party. If your radon levels are 4.0 picocuries per liter (PcI/L) or higher, contact Standard Water for a radon mitigation system. Like all our services, we only provide the best solution available. Learn about radon and our solution here.

Our Services

There are many basement waterproofing companies in St. Paul. Whether you need to fix a wet basement or another basement-related problem, Standard Water is your best choice for long-term peace of mind.

We are often asked about exterior waterproofing. Because an exterior drain tile system is expensive and highly disruptive to your home (excavating yard and sidewalk), Standard Water recommends interior drain tile for existing homes. Read more on why here.




Why Standard Water is THE St. Paul Basement Solutions Company

Having installed solutions in more than 45,000 basements, Standard Water understands that providing long-term peace of mind starts when you contact us and continues long after the job is done. From the quality of our products and materials to the effectiveness and affordability of our solution to our installation process and customer service, we are committed to providing the best experience possible before, during, and after the job.

Before the Job Begins

We start by understanding the problem you want solved to determine the best solution. Whether you need a radon mitigation professional, basement waterproofing, or egress window installation, St. Paul relies on Standard Water to provide the best option for long-term peace of mind. To explore solutions to your basement problem, contact us for a free consultation.

Once you decide to move forward with Standard Water, we account for all legal and safety precautions including building permits and compliance with St. Paul code. Additionally, our professionals are licensed, bonded, and certified so you can be confident in the team that will fix your basement.

Sometimes the unexpected expense of basement repair doesn’t fit your budget, which is why we offer financing options.

During the Job

We don’t want to create a new problem while fixing your current one. This is why we go the extra mile to minimize disruption to your home during the installation. We dig holes by hand to prevent dust spreading and, if we have to walk across your yard, we lay plywood as a walking path to prevent trampling on your lawn. In short, we cover all bases to maximize safety and cleanliness and minimize disruption during installation, which usually takes two days or less.

We also take care to pick the best materials and products for your solution. For example, when repairing foundations, Standard Water uses carbon fiber straps because they’re stronger than steel beams, leave no visible obstructions, and don’t interfere with an existing drain tile system. Regardless of your need, Standard Water will use the highest quality products to give you a workable and livable basement for many years to come.

After the Job

All our services come with a warranty and if you do experience a problem with our installation, we’ll return to your home free-of-charge to resolve it.
