"We were very impressed with the quality of the product, the installation, and especially the installers and the salesperson we talked with. They were extremely knowledgeable" about the products, helpful, and personable. Everything was done on time, there was little to no dust left in our basement(even after they
-hammered through our concrete floor). We would definitely use them again for any basement drainage work.

-Claudia O.

"He was prompt and even checked my sump pump operations (not a part of his normal inspection. Then he quoted a price for water problem abatement, but showed great" integrity by saying if my garage drain was taking care of the problem I was only occasionally having, he didn't think the bigger job was necessary. How refreshing !!

Angie's Answers

Mold in a basement is a common problem. My company helps people with this every day. Some of the answers you received were helpful but not all the information is correct. First, you need to eliminate the two main ingrediants that mold needs to survive. The first one is water intrusion. This is a must. I am assuming you have no water intrusion as you make no mention. The second componant that needs to be eliminated is moisture. Moisture is also humidity. Basements need to be kept airtight in the summer months. Some folks have posted that you need air flow in your basement. Nothing could be furthur from the truth. When you open any windows for example, not one micron of air goes out of the basement, Warm humid air is sucked into the basement. Houses suck air into the basement and it meets the cool surfaces and skyrockets humidity. The windows must be kept closed and a dehumidification device installed to ensure humidity stays below 60% humidity. The dehumidifier should be energy star rated and purchasing a seperate humidity guage is a must to monitor the unit's progress. We like to keep our customer's basements at 50% humidity. This eliminates the smell that is active mold spore growth. Once the water and humidity is brought under control. Remove the organic materials that have mold on them. Walls, sheetrock and studs that have been affected. Follow the advice of previous posts as you must ensure that you do not affect the rest of the home. Once removed, install new walls using as much inorganic material as possible. We also install vapor barrier over the walls and seal the floors to stopwater vapor transmission into the basement. Poly plastic is not a acceptable vapor barrier. It is not "zero-perm" and will still allow moisture transmission. It will also crack and break into pieces over the years. A PVC liner rated "zero-perm" is the correct product in this application. Depending how large the basement is and if it is sectioned off will determine the dehumidifier strength. We use the Santa Fe line of dehidifiers as they are super energy efficiant and work like a dehumidifier on steriods. I hope this helps and I wish you the best in Basement Health!

Where is the home located, what is the exterior wall construction and type, how is the space heated?


It could be a whole host of different scenarios that would generate that result.  It is nearly impossible to tell but I would say that most basement moisture problems are a result of bulk moisture intrusion or condensation issues. 


Given the deep and hard winter this year, it could be a condensation issue that hadn't previously been shown.




Basement Waterproofing reviews in Minneapolis


They came out and did a more thorough proposal and bid than any of the 5 contractors we had come. They gave the most impressive proposal and were by far the lowest bid (by more than $1000). They scheduled a 2 day period that worked for us, came out, and did the entire basement in 2 days. It was pretty amazing, actually. We were overly impressed with the work they did and very highly recommend them!
- Brian R.

This was a very good experience, from beginning to end. The estimator thoroughly explained our options and provided an easy-to-understand contract.
The installers arrived on time and did a great job. For us, it required a huge amount of work in preparation, however, it was worth the effort. The price was more than we had hoped to spend, but the result makes it a sound investment.
Although we did not have major water infiltration in our basement, our 100 yr. old home with cement block walls and cement floor continued to experience periodic water seepage. The result was a ton of mold, making the air unsafe throughout the entire house. We are pleased to report that in the almost two years since the installation, the project has eliminated the mold and it has not returned. As we understand it, there are two keys to this effort: (1) keeping all moisture contained behind the plastic liner; and (2) having a commercial grade dehumidifier to keep the humidity at or below 50%, which renders the mold inactive. The first task we had was to move everything 4 ft. away from the perimeter walls, to give them space to work. In our case, that involved a huge amount of work, including removing a long workbench which was bolted to the wall plus multiple shelving units. When they began work, they jackhammered about 6 inches of the cement floor out from the wall, where they installed the WaterGuard drainage system. That was a dusty project. After placing the plastic drain system into the trench, they covered it with fresh cement, doing a very good job. The next task was to attach the CleanSpace plastic to the walls, from the ceiling to the floor. This airtight seal directs any and all moisture into the WaterGuard. If and when the water actually flows down the walls, the WaterGuard system carries it to the sump, which pumps it outside. As mentioned above, the final key to the success of the system is installing a large dehumidifier, which can be set to whatever humidity level you determine. We were told, and find it to be true, that keeping it at 50% means that the mold can no longer grow. The crew was competent, efficient, answered all our questions, cleaned up completely and completed their work on schedule, which took two full days.
We then went back to work to put everything back into place. As indicated at the outset, it was a lot of work, but since the result makes it possible to enjoy the fresh air of our basement for the first time, and improved the quality of the air throughout our home, our only regret is that we didn't do the project earlier.
They recommend an annual flushing of the WaterGuard drains into the sump. You can hire them to come do this, however it's a relatively

task you can do, simply inserting a garden hose at the 3-4 WaterGuard port access points and running the water for 5-10 minutes at each port.
- Tom V.

With the wet spring last year, we had some significant water ingress in our basement. Not wanting to deal with that scenario again, we asked for quotes from multiple drain tile companies.
Minneapolis Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
was very prompt in replying to our request, and was able to come out 2 days later for a formal quote. The quote (while not cheap), was in line with the other vendors we looked at. What really put
Minneapolis Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
in position to be selected was their dedication to being able to complete the job quickly. Other companies were scheduling 8-9 weeks out, and
Minneapolis Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
worked with us to find a quick turn around. We were lucky to be able to have the work done just 3 days later!
When the crew arrived exactly at the promised time, they very quickly went to work setting up the area. The foreman walked me thru the basement, verifying the notes and drawings that the estimator had put together, where the sump would go, and where the discharge pipe would be. The crew was very efficient, and by the end of the first day, had completely dug up around the base of the foundation, laid the gravel and drain tile. After an inspection, the concrete guy came the following afternoon, and was able to seal up the system.
It took a week for the concrete the
Minneapolis Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
enough for new carpet to be laid down, as the ground was quite wet.
My only complaint was that while the crew tested the sump, the connection for the pump was quite loose, and had worked itself out, so when I tested it the next day, the pump did not work as expected. I used a zip-tie to ensure that the plug would stay in, and have checked it regularly since, with no problems.
- Aaron J.

During the initial visit by the sales representative, he provided options
that other contractors I spoke with did not mention. Between not
routing drain tile along the entire wall, nor putting in a drain
basket for discharge, this still met my goals for protection from
water coming in, yet this approach resulted in a lower quote....More /> Between the sales representative's visit and the arrival of the crew
performing the work, there was miscommunication between them about
the scope of the job. One issue involved arriving without the
appropriate equipment and another tool needed to be rented locally.
Another issue was a deviation in where the drain tile would be run.
I understand that deviations may occur, however had I been informed
of the prefered route in advance, I could have done more to prepare
prior for their arrival.
As far as the quality of the work, most of it was good. However, they
did a poor job of leveling the new concrete on the floor. In a
number of areas, the level of the concrete was higher than the
original floor. This resulted in making the remodeling effort more
difficult when replacing sheetrock on the wall or tile on the
bathroom floor.
One of the reasons that I reduced the professionalism rating was due to
the crew leaving the basement windows and garage door open on a mid
winter evening without alerting me that they had left to take a break
to eat.

we had drain-tile and radon mitigation scheduled with Standard for completion in January of 2015 and were really looking forward to this work being done especially because of the health issues associated with high radon levels. After getting several bids, we chose Standard for a number of reasons. They had a ton of great reviews by Angie's List users. After watching all of their online videos and reading all of their material they left us with the impression that they'd do the best quality job out of everyone we looked into. They also seemed to care a great deal for what was going to be best for our individual house. But most of all, after talking with them on the phone and talking to the owner in person who came out to look at our house, they came across as showing a great level of personal concern for us, their future customer. They left us with a very warm comfortable vibe.
This week a different contractor came out to do some minor siding repair on our house and discovered that we have serious siding issues throughout the entire outer sheathing of our home. Unexpectedly, we now have to do a complete tear-off and reside next spring/summer when the weather conditions are right. Due to the extremely high cost of this unexpected siding job, we can't afford to do both jobs (siding & drain-tile) within such a short period of time. The siding is a much more pressing issue (our house is rotting) so it easily wins out. I called Standard to see if we could delay their work for 1-2 years. The total demeanor of Standard changed at that point. They turned very cold and blunt. I was told that unless the work was completed by
Minneapolis Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
of 2015 (12 months from the signed contract), we'd be charged a 10% cancellation penalty. I went on to explain that we didn't want to cancel our contract, just delay it for 1-2 years. The siding job was unexpected and totally out of our control. It didn't matter, they showed no concern for our situation and were still going to hit us with a 10% penalty. I realize and fully understand that I'm bound by the precise words in the contract I signed. Under extenuating circumstances though, companies can and many times do take uncontrollable situations into consideration and work with their customers. They have the ability to show compassion and have flexibility when these sorts of things happen. Based on all of our prior interactions with Standard, that's what we expected. Instead, Standard's care turned from us and our house, to our money. They would still get paid under my proposal of delaying the work 1-2 years but instead, they leveraged the 10% penalty in the contract to extract as much money out of us that they could. I have a feeling they'd do the same if our house had burnt to the ground instead. In 1-2 years I'll have someone else do the work.
I'm sure if there are no wrinkles along the process, Standard will come in and do a top quality job. Beware though that if anything beyond your control throws you a curve ball, Standard will not be there for you.

- Joshua W.

Very professional for the estimate to scheduling to completion and follow up. The teams that did the work cleaned up after themselves and were very respectful.
- Amy C.

They did a perfectly professional job, leaving my basement cleaner than I left it for them, in the time frame they estimated. I've been waiting for a huge rain to write this review, and I haven't been disappointed. Since the rains started, I've been wearing a groove in my stairs running down them to listen to my new sump pump working away, then running back up the stairs and out the front door to watch my new system dump in the yard. It's been fascinating and unfailing. It amazes me the amount of water that I would be swimming in if not for

We had a great experience, from our initial meeting with
Minneapolis Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
to discuss the bid, to our interactions with the work crew who were working at our house for over a month. Everyone at Portico has been very responsive and a did a great job meeting our needs and adjusting to the unforeseen complications that come with finishing the basement of a 70 year old home. We were extremely pleased with the end result and use our new basement all the time!
