Standard Water Control in Minneapolis


Best Basement Waterproofing Minneapolis, MN Contractor

Living in the City of Lakes means you probably love the water: walking around Lake Harriet, swimming in Lake Nokomis, picnicking at Minnehaha Falls, and any other number of water-based activities. However, you don’t want that water in your basement. Since 1977, home and business owners have relied on Standard Water for basement waterproofing and foundation repair in Minneapolis, MN. Our solutions, customer service, and commitment to your long-term peace of mind will allow you to enjoy the Lakes without worrying if you’ll find one in your basement.

Very impressed from start to finish. As a single female homeowner, I often get talked down to by contractors/home repair professionals and I didn’t experience that at all with Standard Water. From the consult to the day of the project, everything was professional and well communicated. I thought the price was reasonable for the scope of the work. I was very nervous about the mess that would be involved with the drain tile and sump pump installation but as soon as the crew showed up, my mind was put to ease. They knew exactly what they were doing and while yes it’s messy, hard work, I’m very happy and impressed with the result. Standard does a great job of prepping you for the job and advising you on how to prepare your space. I am so relieved to not have to worry about water in the basement anymore. Definitely recommend!  –Erin Bartlett

We had our sump pump looked at and SWCS was extremely responsive and very quickly had the advice we were looking for. They have a sump pump alert and alarm system that gives us the confidence that the sump pump is working as it should. Thank you very much for my sump pump assessment for my new commercial building!    –Mark Zubert

Why Standard Water is THE Minneapolis Basement Waterproofing Company

Having provided basement solutions for more than 45,000 property owners, Standard Water understands that providing long-term peace of mind starts with your first interaction with us and continues through every variable that impacts your experience: the quality of the products and materials used, the effectiveness, longevity, and cost of our solution, the installation process itself, and our customer service. That is why we take great care to provide the best experience available before, during, and after the job.

Before the Job Begins

We start by first understanding your needs. We are committed to ensuring your solution is the right one to fix the problem now and well into the future. Whether you need basement flooding repair, radon mitigation, or anything else basement-related, Standard Water is confident we can provide you long-term peace of mind. And we want you to share that confidence. This is why we offer a free consultation and quote before you decide to partner with us.

Once we understand the problem and solution, we make sure all legal and safety precautions are accounted for including building permits and compliance with Minneapolis code. Additionally, our teams are licensed, bonded, and certified so you can be sure you have the right people for the job.

The cost of the job will vary depending on the problem and solution. Sometimes the unexpected expense of basement repair doesn’t fit your budget, which is why we offer financing options.

During the Job

You’re already dealing with an inconvenience. We don’t want to add to that, which is why we take extra measures to minimize disruption to your home during the installation. Holes are hand dug to prevent dust spreading in your home. If we have to walk through your yard, plywood is laid as a walking path to prevent trampling on your lawn. In short, anything our experienced team members do is done in the safest and cleanest way possible. Additionally, most installations are done in two days or less without compromising quality.

Besides the quality of our service, your peace of mind is impacted by the quality of the materials we use. Because we only install effective, long-term solutions, we choose the best products available. For example, Standard Water’s interior drain tile solution is installed with rigid PVC pipe rather than corrugated pipe because rigid PVC offers a more efficient, long-lasting means of keeping water out of your basement. Whether you need basement waterproofing, crawlspace encapsulation, foundation repair, or radon removal and mitigation, Minnesota and western Wisconsin have relied on Standard Water over 45 years to install effective, high quality products that last.

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.
