Experienced Waterproofing and Drainage Services
In addition to correcting improper grading, we can perform waterproofing and drainage correction for the following.
This system actively takes moisture away from the soil around your home, protecting the concrete of your foundation.
Careful plant selection can help your soil accept more water. This consequently will slow the flow-rate towards your foundation.
Rain gardens provide a place for this water to be absorbed. Therefore water is kept from damaging the ground. Instead, it is collected to nourish plants.
Drain tile is an effective way to remove water from below the surface and funnel it elsewhere. This system protects your foundation and your plants.

Whether you are looking to have the land around your home re-graded to ensure proper drainage or want to hire a company that can create a good landscaping design while maintaining proper grade, Dean Bjorkstrand will deliver. Our professional Minneapolis design and installation team will walk you through every step from concept to completion.
Correct waterproofing and drainage is not glamorous, but it is necessary. The Twin Cities face harsh weather throughout the year, including heavy snows and torrential downpours. As a result, if your home is not prepared to handle the worst, your home and yard will be at the mercy of the elements. You might not notice any damage immediately. Over time, however, your gardens will wash out. Your patios and other spaces will also suffer damage. Furthermore, your home’s foundation could end up being harmed by erosion from the water as a result. All of these repairs are costly. In almost every situation, however, they can be prevented by proper waterproofing and drainage correction.
If you struggle with standing water around the foundation of your home or a wet basement, you may be in need of waterproofing & drainage correction services.
We will grade away the land around your home to ensure rainwater runs off away from the house. This kind of grading stops water from sitting against your foundation. Standing water can lead to erosion over time. Consequently, concrete in the foundation may absorb standing water and begin to crack. As a result, the foundation might expand or contract as temperatures fluctuate, threatening the building stability. The Twin Cities region is especially prone to this kind of damage during the spring and winter. Our cold temperatures and heavy snows put foundations at risk. Fluctuating temperatures in spring make snow melt and then refreeze. This causes a major hazard. Therefore, proper drainage mitigates damage from temperature changes and weather conditions like heavy snow.
Re-grading the land around your home can be a major undertaking. It requires disturbing flower beds and other existing features, even if you’re only re-grading a small portion of the area. We will work to keep your landscape design intact. Our goal is to create an area that drains properly. As a result, water is channeled away from the house so that no damage can be done to the foundation.
