Severely Damaged Basement in Hugo, MN

Tuesday, October 4th, 2016 by Danielle Wesbur


Homeowners in Hugo, MN were experiencing severe basement damage. They were noticing large cracks in their foundation walls and water on their floor. After some time had passed, the condition of their basement worsened. Mud was now coming through the cracks in the walls and water was pooling in their basement. Knowing their troubles were becoming urgent, the homeowners called Innovative for help.


Through precise planning and engineering, the TEAM came up with a repair solution. The crew came out and installed ten wall anchors to pull the bulging wall back into place. This helped close up open cracks and straighten the walls. With the wall stabilized, the crew moved on to waterproofing the basement. To line the walls to assure their would be no leaking of the walls, the TEAM installed CrawlSeal. The crew also installed a BasementGutter drainage system and a SafeDri Triple sump pump.

Now, the homeowners no longer have to worry about their basement flooding or foundation walls collapsing.
