Expert Foundation Repairs in Minneapolis, MN

Innovative Basement Authority is committed to customer service and is proud to serve our area. We have a talented team of technicians that are ready to help you find the best solution using quality products from the best manufacturers in the business. We want to work with you so that you can have the best results for your home!

Issues with foundations are often caused by broken or weakened soil that can no longer support the weight of the structure. Some of the major signs of this are cracked floors or walls, tilting chimneys, street creep, or inward bowing walls. When this occurs, one of the ways to remedy the problem is to install foundation piers and jack posts which will correct uneven or sloping floors. Wall anchors and I-Beam wall braces are also good for fixing bowing, leaning walls, providing a permanent solution for foundation issues.

Bowing Basement Wall Reinforced with Carbon Fiber in Minneapolis, MN

Homeowner from Minneapolis, MN, contacted TEAM Innovative regarding a basement foundation wall that was bowing fairly significantly.  Certified Field Inspector, Chad Neegard, visited the home and inspected the foundation.  Chad offered a few options for stabilization, ultimately deciding together on Carbon Fiber; innovative product development undertaken by aerospace engineers and the U.S. Dept. of Defense is now being applied to the age-old problem of cracked and bowing foundation walls. The Carbon Fiber Wall Reinforcing System, utilizes the same technology used to support bridges, skyscrapers and bomb shelters to stabilize building foundations that have sustained damage such as cracks and bowing.

The aerospace industry has come to rely on the light but strong characteristics of carbon fiber technology, and the U.S. Dept. of Defense uses the same strapping technique to reinforce bomb shelters. With this kind of a pedigree, the Carbon Fiber System allows homeowners to stabilize bowing foundations quickly and affordably and this homeowner was happy and grateful for that!

Pete made recommendations for CrawlSeal vapor barrier to the walls as well as the dehumidifier.  He educated the homeowner on the products, warranty information as well as reviewing the estimate in detail.   The homeowner was in agreement with the waterproofing plan and we got the job scheduled and completed in no time.

Basement Waterproofing & PolyRenewal Concrete Lifting in Minneapolis, MN

Homeowner from Minneapolis, MN reached out to the TEAM at Innovative after researcing basement waterproofing on HomeAdvisor.com.  There was water coming in her basement from one corner and wall.  Certified Field Inspector, Eric Rysdam, visited the home and quickly noticed the sidewalk along the problem side had considerable settling and was more than likely the cause of the water, so recommendation was made for concrete leveling with PolyRenewal.   The basement also did not have proper drainage so a BasementGutter drain system was recommended as well as a SafeDri Triple sump pump.

After installation, the homeowner was very pleased - expecially because we were able to keep the dust to a minimum!

Waterproofing in Minneapolis, MN

Homeowners in Minneapolis, MN were having troubles with their basement having a high humidity level. To add to the problem, they were also noticing pooling water in several areas throughout the basement. They previously had other contractors out to look at the problem who gave quotes for exterior waterproofing but, unsure about that option, the homeowners contacted Innovative for help.

After our Certified Field Inspector examined the basement, he found that exterior waterproofing wouldn't resolve the issue at hand and proposed an interior waterproofing system. Due to the water pooling in the center of the floor, we would be able to install a drainage system around the perimeter of the basement and through the center of the floor to collect water wherever it might pool.

Since the installment, the homeowners are happy to report they've had no water troubles!

We're getting water coming through the cinderblock in our basement when it rains hard. It never gets to the point where there's standing water, but it's annoying and we'd like to finish our bathroom downstairs, but obviously cannot until the water is taken care of. It would be nice to know what our options are. Thanks, Michael

Dan W. had to work in a very confined space. He was usually early every day and had an excellent work ethic.  Job was completed as scheduled & the project to level the porch a success.
