Residential Basement Waterproofing in Isanti, MN

Monday, April 17th, 2017 by Jen Herbrandson


Not having an efffective sump pump to keep their basement dry and free from mold was beginning to weigh on the minds of retired homeowners in Isanti, MN.

A substantial amount of water would be noticed where the floor met the walls.

The homeowners wanted to correct these problems once and for all, so they contacted Innovative Basement Authority after researching basement waterproofing.  Certified Field Inspector, Don Kropidlowski, visisted the home and did a complete evalution of the property and discussed the options available for effective waterproofing.


Per Don's recommendations, we installed waterproofing products including the BasementGutter drainage system, a SafeDri Triple sump pump and a dehumidifier to keep the basement dry. (The dehumidifier drains to the SafeDri Triple so no more dumping!)

The basement's perimeter was excavated for the installation of the BasementGutter system. BasementGutter is specifically designed to sit in the sub-floor, separate from the soil under the floor so it will never clog. This system will intercept any seeping water and drain it into a trustworthy sump pump.

The SafeDri Triple was installed to pump water out of the basement and away from the foundation so the home will be free of problematic water intrusion.

The homeowners were excited to have these products installed in their forever home so that it will be a healthier living environment for many years to come.
