Job Stories From Forest Lake, MN
Musty Odors Be Gone in Forest Lake, MN

Homeowner from Forest Lake, MN, contacted Innovative Basement Authority regarding a musty smell that started after the basement had previous water seepage.   Certified Field Inspector, Jerry Bartell, visted the home and inspected the basement.  The carpet had all since been pulled up and he found that there was no drain system in place and that their sump pump was quite old and inefficient.  He also noted the musty smell (mold) and high humidty levels.

Jerry went over his findings and educated the homeowners on his recommendations for a BasementGutter drainage system, a SafeDri Triple sump pump as well as a dehumidifier, installation processes, warranty information as well as a complete review of the estimate.  They were in agreement with all of the recommendations and signed off to get the project rolling.

Since completion - they'd noticed a drastic improvement in air quality - and that's why we do what we do

Garage and Garage Apron Concrete Leveling with PolyRenewal in Forest Lake, MN

Homeowbers fron Forest Lake, MN, called Innovative Basment Systems to see if we could correct their settled concrete garage apron. Bob Joyce, Certified Field Inspector, visted the home and did an inspection of the concrete in question.  Bob made his recommendation for PolyRenewal foam injection to lift the concrete and joint sealant and the job was sold and scheduled.  (We even ended up lifting some of the slab inside the garage.)

The homeowner was really happy with the results and the five year warranty!  If you have sinking slab - call for your free estimate today!

Old patio. Some under roof Some not.
Vicinity of Lake St. S. in Forest Lake in Forest Lake, MN
During heavy rainfalls, our business has significant water coming through the entry way. We've added silicone where the concrete meets the entryway, added concrete patching to the slab. We are still not able to figure out where the water is penetrating through into the building. I can send photos if that would be helpful.
Vicinity of Jason Ave N in Forest Lake in Forest Lake, MN
Leaking basement apartment. I think it's in a spot where there used to be a door and it was renovated, so there's a gap where the concrete lip used to be. Not sure if there is a solution at this point, but there is water coming in. Would like some potential solutions and an estimate as soon as possible. The area is carpeted. Thanks so much.

A home we are looking to purchase has a two car drive way that has undermining near the left of the driveway, due to misdirected rain gutter flow, which is closest to the garage running back about four feet from the garage. Need just a quick estimate on void fill for a residential driveway covering approximately 32 to 40 sg ft. This is probably a high estimate of the undermining.

Water in basement after heavy rains , would like an appointment after 3pm M-F to take a look.
Vicinity of Hearth Ave N in Forest Lake in Forest Lake, MN
Had a outside spigot burst a month ago and flooded the basement, had everything cleaned up and dried but didn't replace anything yet then with all this rain I just noticed last night the basement floor was soaked yet again! I'm guessing a foundation issue or bad drain tile or possible crack? It's coming in through the walls under the stairs of a typical split level home

Our basement has carpet on the finished area, sump pump stopped working couple weeeks ago and a small amount of water seeped in underneath the carpet. Carpet never got wet, but now our basement smells extremely musty! Also my son is coughing with running nose, so I'm assuming mold is now growing.
