Job Stories From Lake Elmo, MN
PolyRenewal Foam Injection in Lake Elmo, MN

After visiting our booth at the MPLS Home & Garden Show, homeowners from Lake Elmo, MN, took advantage of our free estimate for concrete lifting.  Certified Field Inspector, Keith Hansen, met with the homeowners and inspected their areas of concern.  Keith consulted with them on how we inject PolyRenewal foam for concrete lifting (PolyRenewal polymer consists of two separate liquids that are combined right at the injection nozzle to trigger a chemical reaction that turns the blended ingredients into expanding, high-density foam. The foam flows into voids and between loose soil particles, expanding to about 15 times its initial volume. This expansive action effectively lifts settled concrete. An experienced technician, like those at Innovative Basement Authority, can control the application to create just the right amount of raising pressure), the injection process, benefits, warranty information as well as costs involved.

The job was scheduled & completed without any hiccups and the homeowners were very impressed with the lift achieved!

Slab on Grade Concrete Patio Lifted in Lake Elmo, MN

Homeowners from Lake Elmo, MN, contacted the TEAM at Innovative Basement Authority to discuss his slab on grade front porch that had settled towards the house.  Water had also found its way into the basement, luckily next to the sump pump!  He was interested in lifting the patio back to its original position. Certified Field Inspector, Bill Obert, met with the homeowner and took a good look at the patio. It was a perfect job for PolyRenewal foam injection!  Bill explained the injection process, went over warranty information as well as all costs that would be involved.

Seeing PolyRenewal injected is something else! The homeowner was certainly impressed and since then - not more water in his basement! Lake Elmo has another happy homeowner!

Wet basement corrected in Lake Elmo, MN

A Lake Elmo, MN client called Innovative with concerns of recurring water where basement walls meet floor.   After our Certified Field Inspector inspected the property and visited with the homeowner, several steps were taken to ensure effective waterproofing.  A BasementGutter drainage system, high-efficiency dehumidifier and SafeDri Triple sump pump were installed.

Bowing Walls at Lake Elmo

Susan R. was searching the internet for more information on bowing walls when she came across Innovative Basement Authority. It wasn't long after that Eric Rysdam was out at the house for a free estimate. Next, primary foreman Shane Smith and his crew came out to install Push Piers and IntelliBraces. Push Piers will stop the settlement of your foundation and lift it back to its original position. IntelliBraces are designed to stabilize failing basement walls and provide the potential to straighten them over time. Since the project wrapped up, Susan's walls have straightened out and become more stable.
