"I would really like to see basement water-proofing companies pair with landscaping companies. I thought that I would learn more about drainage and water control" from my initial visit with this company. Since both my neighbors have sump pumps, I jumped the gun and assumed that I needed one. Then I talked to my uncle (who has remodeled several basements) and some old-timers in my neighborhood. I learned many things about drainage from them, such as the fact that water likes to flow vertically unless you have a soil like clay underneath. From the old-timers, I learned that I have bedrock underneath my house, and not peat like some parts of the neighborhood. I then looked at my neighbors houses and saw that they would not be able to control water next to their foundation because of the way their roofs are shaped. I have only been in my house for 2 years, so like I said I think I jumped the gun by signing a contract. I did have water during the summer of 2014. However, I did have a leaking chimney (now fixed) and a part of my landscaping that was not up to pair. For now I am going to fix some of my landscaping and clean my gutters and see what happens from there. I have not had any water in my basement this summer. Like I said, I think it would be great if these companies would pair with landscaping companies, or learn more about the soil types and history of water damage in the neighborhoods. I would've liked to have learned all of those things in my initial visit (type of soil underneath, history of water damaged basements in the area, etc...). It parallels doctors of today who just see a problem that needs to be fixed instead of looking at the patient as a whole. If I do ever need an interior drain tile system, I would probably still go with this company. They are very straightforward. I thought their price was reasonable. They also have an extremely good reputation in my neighborhood. They offered me $500 off if I scheduled in , which was nice but also put a little bit of pressure on to quickly make a decision. I really wanted to finish my basement for a renter so I rushed my decision. For now I am going to be patient and not get this system until I fully understand why water would possibly come into my basement

-Fiona L.

" came out in March to provide a quote for roughly 50 ft of drain tile, 1 drain port, and extra concrete removal for another basement project." I had several vendors come out to bid and was one of the lowest priced options and their bid was very thorough in terms of price, products used, and warranty information. explained the process well and answered any questions I had. When I finally decided to book the job I had a hard time getting a installation date; however, as soon as I put down the deposit scheduling called within 2 business days. They were booking 4-weeks out at the time. The lead contractor called the night before to confirm a time and said their last job was running a little bit behind and wouldn't be to the house until noon. He was able to split up the teams early so three arrived to jackhammer the concrete around 10:30. This allowed enough time for the bldg inspector to give the go ahead and for the team to finish the job. They filled the cement back in and tested the system. They couldn't get the existing sump pump to work, so I had them check their truck for one. Fortunately or unfortunately they didn't have one... while they were checking I hooked up the sump pump to try again and it worked - a new pump was unnecessary. Not sure how their pumps compare to 's but the price was quite a bit more than 's prices. If I ended up needing one, we would've just bought at Mendards and installed myself. Two weeks and quite a few rainstorms later the existing and new system is working as it should, no water in the basement and the pump continues to function as normal. Now I can feel comfortable finishing the basement.

Unfinished basement

6 Questions to Ask a Basement Waterproofing Contractor

Ask your basement waterproofing contractor these key questions.

basement, flood, sump pump

What to Expect with Basement Waterproofing

Does your finished basement have seepage? Does water find a way in, and make you wonder if you need foundation repair?

It’s not abnormal to find mold in your home. Getting the mold treated right away is the best way to avoid health risks. Once you remove the mold from your home it’s very important to fix the moisture problem to prevent the problem from reoccurring.

If you're wanting to transform that unfinished space into a man cave, here's how to get started.

You'll need this if you install a basement bathroom.

Maintaining your window wells and basement windows are key to keeping moisture out of the house.

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 Saint Paul


They were extremely professional. They actually arrived a bit early and called before to let us know. They explained in thorough detail all our options. was really knowledgeable. I didn't feel we were being pressured for a sale. We will definitely consider them in the future.
- Kate S.

I could not be more thrilled or thankful that I called this company. The team of three guys who came to my house were exceptional. They got to work right away and worked all day for three days straight, encountering a few issues along the way and taking care of them promptly with a friendly attitude. I think the issues they encountered caused them to ...More have to work on my basement much longer than they anticipated, but they never complained and just smiled. The foreman, I think his name was , just smiled and said he liked to make sure everything was done correctly - that he was a perfectionist. Well they certainly are! I think very highly of the service and people, and I can't recommend them enough for basement projects - they really did a fabulous job!!! Two thumbs up for sure.
- Gwen M.

responded to our inquiry for drain tile installation the day after and was out for an inspection and measurements the day after that. we received a bid that evening. after modifying our request provided a new bid which we accepted. He and his crew showed up at 7:30 sharp on the day he specified, sealed ...More off the basement, covered everything in the basement in plastic sheeting and completed the job in a day and a half. The basement was left cleaner than when the crew started. The job is neat and professionally finished looking. We are very satisfied with and his crew and the work they provided and would highly recommend him.
- John H.

was exceptional to work with. Details are included below, but in short, I was grateful to have chosen and his crew because they were extremely professional, did excellent work, and most importantly, conducted their business with integrity. Selecting a drain tile contractor can be intimidating because ...More of the expense involved and the drastic measures that a homeowner sometimes has to take to remedy basement water problems. I unconditionally recommend Standard.
We had severe water problems during the extremely wet spring of 2014. Once we began calling drain tile installers after the flood waters subsided, it became clear that you'd be lucky to get a call back at all, because most companies were booked out for months and literally could not answer the phone. Standard's website is informative and does a good job of explaining the basics of a homeowner's options to deal with water problems. Although I had to leave a voice message for Standard, as promised, they returned the call and promptly came to my house to do an estimate. The estimator had thorough knowledge of products and the installation process. He explained how we should prepare our basement for the work. He explained that they were booked several months out, but told us the exact day that they would be installing our project, which ended up being the actual day that the work was performed. He also explained that Standard wasn't responding to the influx of jobs by adding a bunch of inexperienced crews just to keep up.
Given the massive number of people getting drain tile installed, we were unable to get an estimate from a different company for comparison. However, I know that a friend had a smaller drain tile project installed by a contractor that took several days to complete the project and paid significantly more than I did.
After accepting the offer I received a thorough letter explaining the work to be done and what we needed to do to prepare. On the day promised, the crew called ahead, and showed up on time. The crew put up plastic to control dust as much as possible. The installation -- including jackhammering, removing a massive amount of concrete and installing the drain tile, sump basket and pump, battery backup and vapor -- was completed in one day. New concrete was poured the next day and completed in just a few hours.
As the job was just completed, I have not seen the sump pump work in a heavy rain, but the quality of the installation work looks excellent.
The only problem that occurred actually turned out to be a significant benefit to me. After the first day of work, I noticed damage to a basement window that the crew used to pass tools and concrete through during their work. On the second day, one of the workers took photographs and I got a call from , the owner of , who took responsibility for the damage and began to discuss how to remedy the problem. It took several phone calls to determine whether the window should be replaced or repaired, and throughout that process, was prompt at returning my phone calls; I felt that he was taking care of his customer. Ultimately decided -- without me having to push the issue -- that the only way to fix the window was to totally replace it. I suspect that his decision to do so means that Standard may have lost money on my job, but did what the owner of "stand-up" company, one that understands how important a reputation for integrity is, does to ensure that the customer is taken care of. The window installer has told me that payment has already been made by , so he has held up his end of the deal, plus more.
Here's the "more," a separate benefit: After 's worker examined the window damage, realized that what I thought was a basement egress window actually did not meet the code for the proper square footage of the window opening once the window was cranked open. Once I looked at the open window, I realized that it would have been far more difficult to exit my basement during an emergency that if the window's hinges were placed to meet the egress code requirements. Oddly, if the damage had not happened, I probably never would have realized that there was a far safer way to locate the hinges on the window, which will now happen when the new window is installed.
Over the years, I've worked with many contractors listed on Angie's list, but I've never written a review. I try to pick companies, like , with lots of excellent reviews, and have felt like my one additional review can't make that much of a difference. Standard impressed me so much that I felt compelled to write this one.

- R A.

arrived as scheduled and reviewed the foundation and first floor looking for signs of settling or bowing. I was hoping for an honest consultant and that is what we got. Very grateful for his honesty and getting us to understand the true nature of the foundation cracks. In the case where we needed a complex solution I found that ...More the solutions they have are very affordable too. I would definitely recommend them.
- Michael M.

The work crew showed up late on both days, but the work for both days were finished early. Work crew was approachable and professional. The work was completed as scheduled. The sales rep was responsive when I had questions about the proposal.
I gave the price a grade of B because I didn't do a good job of comparing different companies.
- Xiong Y.

I had a few items that I wanted them to look at. The first was to put in a sump pump in my existing sump basket and then I wanted them to look at what it would take to help a cold crawlspace.
The sump pump options were from the basement to the penthouse (pun intended). However even the basement was more than I needed.
As far as the ...More crawlspace, they also have multiple options but each included full encapsulation. I think encapsulation is a wonderful option if you have issues with moisture causing mold as well as high radon. However in my situation I did not have issues with either of those and the only issue that I wanted to resolve was the cold in the winter.
I instead called a insulation company and had them come in and seal the Rim Joist and I will see if I need to take it further.
I still have their information and if I want to continue down the path of encapsulation I will be reaching out to them to discuss.
One thing that I found weird is if you online in the MN area for other crawlspace encapsulation it may give you different company names but the phone number is exactly the same. So there must be some sort of "umbrella" company that based on what you are looking for either basement renovation, insulation or crawlspace encapsulation they point you to the correct company. What this does unfortunately is prevents you from getting a valid second opinion from another source.


arrived on time at 7:30am with a crew of 4. The work was finished that afternoon. All members of the crew were friendly, courteous, and well informed about the project.
