No More Pulling Up The Carpet - Fargo, ND

After receiving three bids on waterproofing her basement (two from Innovative, one year apart!), homeowner from Fargo, ND, contacted Innovative Certified Field Inspector, Brady Bergquist, to let him know she wanted to proceed with his recommendations.   She stated "I wish I would have done this the first time you came out!"

As an experienced waterproofing company, Innovative Basement Authority helps homeowners solve their basement problems fast. We have over 10 years of experience in the industry, and have been recognized by the BBB.

Her home was built in 1900 with no drain tile.  There was presently one sump pump in the basement bedroom, however it did not control the water and they often had to take up the carpet to dry.  Brady's recommendations were for BasementGutter drainage system, replacing her current sump as well as installation of an additional SafeDri sump pump.

Since installation, the floor has remained completely dry and the chore of carpet removal is a thing of the past.  If you have wet basement issues, call today to schedule your free estimate.

Basement Turned to Crawl Space

Awhile back Innovative installed a complete waterproofing system in this homeowners basement. But it was not effective, the specialist and our Fargo branch manger went out to home. We then realized the lake level the house sat on had come up significantly, the basement was below the level of the lake. Innovative then came up with a new solution. We used StableFill to bring the floor of the basement to above the lake level essentially making the basement into a crawl space. Once this was done we used CrawlSeal to encapsulate the crawl space. The homeowner was very happy with the end result, as well as our customer service and determiniation to find a solution to his water problems.
