If you’re planning to remodel your basement we highly recommend taking care of any water problem you have first. That way you can remodel with full confidence and peace of mind that your investment is protected from water intrusion and damage. At this home in Plymouth, Minnesota we not only fixed the water problem but also began the basement renovation by installing two beautiful egress windows. Our crew jackhammered 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. Our homeowner, Jackie, chose two popular options for additional peace of mind. She had us install a battery back-up system, in case the power goes out or the flow of water becomes extreme due to unusually heavy rains. Jackie also had us install 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 egress window systems. How did we do? Jackie gave us 5’s 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.
