Homeowner from Apple Valley, MN, reached out to TEAM Innovative to see what we could offer her for repair of a floor-to-ceiling crack in her block wall. Certified Field Inspector, Larry Donnelly, met with the homeowner, inspected the basement and problem area and then explained our crack repair system. (At Innovative Basement Authority, we recommend the Foundation Crack Repair System, it's warrantied and a permanent solution.) The homeowner loved the product and the job was scheduled and completed with no bumps! She also invested in a dehumidifier to keep relative humidity at bay - especially during the summer months.

Homeowners from White Bear Lake contacted the TEAM at Innovative to see what we could do about their settled concrete sidewalk.

After numerous encounters with having a wet basement, homeowners in Hugo, MN knew they had to get the problem fixed. If water wasn't bad enough, the homeowners were also having a snake problem!

Homeowners in Burnsville, MN were experiencing tripping hazards due to the sinking staircase leading to their front door.

After homeowners in Lindstrom, MN, had radon test levels come back at 6.6 - they made the call to Innovative Basement Authority for radon gas mitigation as well as crawlspace encapsulation. Matthew Stromgren, Certified Field Inspector, visted the homeowners and took a look at the crawlspace. The sump pump was located in the crawlspace and it had about a 2' x 2' opening access point.
CrawlSeal with drainage matting was recommended for encapsulation in conjunction with mitigation. The before and after pics are pretty impressive - and now the homeownwer can rest assured his home is healthy and dry!
Circle Pines, MN, homeowners called in to inquire on concrete lifting. They said they had about a 3x3 foot area of their sidewalk that had settled and they were looking to get it filled before the snow came.

No more tripping hazard there!

We made a world of difference in this Little Falls, MN basement.

We also were able to permanently stabilize the foundation walls with our IntelliBrace foundation wall repair system. By protecting their investment this way - they not only added incredible resale value to their home, they noticed dramatic improvement to the comfort and air quality of their home.

This project completely transformed the home, eliminating foul odors and keeping the relative humidity in check. Protect your largest investment, call 320-515-2200 today.
Morgan and Erik called TEAM Innovative after looking on line for a contractor to replace their egress windows.

Both Morgan and Erik were thrilled with the improvement to their home and increased energy efficiency too!
After the passing of a Grafton, ND, homeowner, the family and trust company needed to place their trust in someone that could repair the foundation issues to prepare the home for sale. After seeing our ad on television and making a call to us, the listing agent involved met Certified Field Inspector, Brady Bergquist, at the property. The severity showed areas where half of the cinder blocks were broken and could be moved by hand. They also needed a new sump pump. We put a proposal together for wall anchors, Carbon Fiber and a SafeDri Triple sump pump. It was accepted and the job was scheduled. The family, realtor and trust company were all very pleased with the work and the home was ready to be listed. Families don't always come to us under the best circumstances. Please know that we will be honest and respectful, and that the job will be done correctly. We are redefining the industry!
Basement waterproofing client from Grafton, ND reached out to the TEAM at Innovative via email. She had water in her basement and it had been coming in for at least 6 months. She also complained of cracks along the floor on the basement walls and that is where she thought the water was getting in. Jason Kratcha, Certified Field Inspector, visited with the homeowner and it was decided that a BasementGutter Drainage System would be installed along the perimeter of the basement and paired with our, high-effiency SafeDri Triple sump pump. During installation it was noticed her water heater was also leaking so we made sure to slope the concrete so that it would run into the drainage system. Unfortunately - we broke on of her basement steps as it was rotten from water! All in all the customer was very happy with the waterproofing and the installation, she can now put water worries out of her mind!
After test results showed high levels of radon in their home, homeowners in Jamestown, ND had Innovative install a radon mitigation system.
