Let's get the work started on your Hennepin County home.

Foundation Repair & Concrete Leveling

If your home is suffering from foundation issues let us know. We can have one of our foundation specialists visit & inspect the problem. We can then identify and explain the best method to repair the issue. The foundation products we choose to use have a 25 year warranty.
Repairs for:
  • Wall Cracks
  • Bowing Walls
  • Uneven Floors
  • Settling Foundations
  • Uneven Concrete Slabs
We Use: 
  • Wall Anchors
  • I-Beam Wall Braces
  • Foundation & Slab Piers
  • Crawl Space Jack Posts
  • PolyRenewal
We also deal with sinking and settling concrete. To fix sinking concrete slabs we use PolyRenewal, a polyurethane foam. The foam is injected through small holes drilled into the slab. Beneath the slab the foam expands to fill all the gaps and lifts the concrete back to a level position. You don't need to deal with cracks or tripping hazards. Give our Hennepin County experts a call.

Sloping Home Makes Noise In St. Louis Park, MN

Home Owners from St. Louis Park, MN called Innovative Basement Authority after they started to notice popping and cracking noises, as well as having one corner of their house being sloped since 1993. They also noticed in the past year when construction was being done by their house, heavy machinery would cause their home to shake. Afterwards the popping noises and visibility of a settling first floor was even more noticeable. When a specialist checked out the property he could see that the house was settling and sinking more and more.

After talking with the specialist, the homeowners realized they were in need of foundation repairs. The crew installed Helical Piers using a standard bracket. After the job was finished the homeowners no longer heard the cracking or popping noises, and the first floor no longer sloped.

Flooding Office Basement in Minnetonka, MN

The crew installed a SafeDri Triple pump system along with FreezeGuard to prevent floods from a frozen discharge line, BasementGutter Port for access to the system, and BasementGutter sub-floor drainage system. After 3 years the basement has not flooded, or taken in water leaving it dry, and clean for whatever the family needs.

Damp and Mold Take Over Laundry Room Walls

Duane and Debbie first called Innovative Basement Authority when they noticed mold growing on their laundry room walls. Although they didn't have any water, the humidity gave the house an overall feeling of "dampness". System Design System Neal Schumacher put together a plan to stop the mold from forming, along with getting rid of the damp feeling throughout the home. 

Primary Foreman, Dan Widenstrom and team came out to the house and got to work. The team first installed a Triple Safe pump system with twin liner along with SafeDri battery back-up pumping system, and an alarm system. To keep the humidity low and to circulate clean air throughout the home a Dehumidifier Upright was installed. To help keep the walls clean and dry LumaBright paneling was installed.

Since Duane and Debbie had work done they no longer experience mold or humidity problems in their home and basement.

Concrete raised in Hamel, MN

Homeowners in Hamel, MN were having troubles with their concrete slab sinking near their house. Due to the slab slanting towards the home and water pooling next to the foundation, and the grade around the foundation sloping towards the home, the homeowners were also having troubles with water seeping into their basement. After expressing their concerns to the Certified Field Inspector, the TEAM planned for repair. To fix the sinking slab, the TEAM would inject PolyRenewal beneath the concrete. To fix the grade issue, the TEAM fixed it so it was slanting away from the foundation. Then, since the basement was wet in only one room, the TEAM installed CrawlSeal on the necessary wall and a BasementGutter drainage system in the room to prevent any further damage. 

Since the repairs, the homeowners are now enjoying the dry basement. They're also enjoying less tripping hazards on the exterior of their home where concrete slabs were.

PolyRenewal Concrete Lifting in West Fargo, ND

Homeowner from West Fargo, ND, reached out to Innovative Basment Systems as he was excited to get his driveway lifted & sealed.  Jason Kratcha, Certified Field Inspector, visted the homeowner and recommended PolyRenewal foam injection.  The combined weight of concrete and the vehicles and structures it supports often causes the soil beneath the slab to shift and settle. When this happens, major problems can occur.  The damage done by sinking concrete can have several side effects. Tripping hazards on stairs and walkways are common, as are cracked and uneven driveways and garages. On a larger scale, roadways and parking lots can become dangerous or even unusable if the problem is left untreated.

I'm advising a widowed friend who wants to install a small 5x12 deck. She's looking for information about the cost of footings. Depending on whether we build this as a freestanding deck or an attached deck, the number of footings will be either 6, or 3. I consider the helical piers an attractive option because of the low impact on existing landscaping. We would like to get a rough idea of costs.

Looking to add 31' of drain tile before I finish my basement
Had water issues, drain tiles installed but basement still smells musty, and walls tested for moisture still. Need remediation but also a solution to divert water from house, potentially including raising cement block in the rear part of the house.
I am wondering about the effectiveness of your peirs for a deck installation.
Cracked blocked walls.
