5.0 Jeff N. Minneapolis, MN

Good quality work, very friendly, took the time to safeguard inside the home as well. Did a nice job in clean up as well. The office lady was also very nice and helpful when I called in for questions

Response from Company:

Hi, Jeff-Thank you for sharing your experience with your egress window installation!!! Please let us know if you would like us to finish the interior. We look forward to many more projects with you.

4.0 Mark S. Sartell, MN

Make sure you agree with the placement of the sump pump & hose placement. I did not know there would be holes drilled to accommodate hoses going through the walls in a downstairs bedroom. I had to hire someone to try to conceal them as it is an eye sore in that bedroom!

Response from Company:

Hi Mark. Cannot thank you enough for your time. I will be taking a close look at all notes in your job file to help guide us where we need to improve with each team member and department. Our project managers and foreman go over these details with the homeowner prior to the install so I do not understand the miscommunication Again I appreciate your honest feedback, so crucial for the growth of our team.

5.0 Amanda I. Anoka, MN

5.0 Robert N. Saint Paul, MN

I interviewed four companies and decided to go with Standard Water Control. Since they were the first one I had them come back after learning a few things talking to the other companies. The project was clarified and scheduled. On the day of the demo I got a call around 8:00 a.m. letting me know they were leaving and when they planned to be on site. When they arrived they let me know what they were planning to do, finish by early afternoon so they could help out another crew on a larger project. My house had other ideas. It turns out my foundation is a little thicker than normal and it took a few more hours than expected. They didn't rush the job, the finished the demo and drain tile and rock install. They showed me the sump pump and explained the operation. They also informed me what to expect for the next day with the concrete crew. I received a call the next day, as was explained, same deal, they called around 8:00 a.m. to let me know they were leaving and when to expect them. When they arrived they answered the few questions I had, when can I put the dryer back in place and the carpet back down. They completed their work and removed all of the protective barriers that were placed the previous day. They verified I understood the operation of the sump pump, collected payment due and left. A great experience and would recommend them.

Response from Company:

Hi Robert- WOW!! I am blown away by the amazing and very detailed review. Our crew is always happy to hear that they have met your expectations and earned a 5-star review! I will be sure to show them. Please keep Standard water in mind if you ever need an egress window or radon mitigation as we do those services as well.

5.0 Robert N. Saint Paul, MN

Waterproofing is a two day experience. The first day they break the concrete and install the drain tile. While the first day crew was hoping to go help another crew my house had other plans. My foundation concrete was thicker than normal. They eventually managed to get the concrete out and the drain tile in. They confirmed the amount of water that we were seeing, it was dry as we only see water during rain before the ground thaws. I was informed that the cement people would call the next morning and let me know when they would be arriving. Day two the cement crew called and let me know when they would be arriving. They arrived, did their work, answered my questions, how longer before I could move the dryer back and put the carpet back down.

Response from Company:

Hi Robert-Thank you taking the time to share your experience & help spread the word about Standard Water Control!!! We appreciate you more than you know!!!
