Job Stories From Otter Tail County, MN
Fergus Falls, MN Basement Waterproofing Project

Homeowners in Fergus Falls, MN were having troubles with high humidity levels and water seeping into their basement. Their home was built in the early 1900's and still had some rock foundation walls making it easy for water to seep in. With a dehumidifier and fan running 24/7, and still no luck keeping the moisture away, the homeowners knew they had to get help. They then contacted Innovative in hopes of finding a solution.

The TEAM then installed a BasementGutter drainage system, energy efficient dehumidifier (which drains directly into a sump pump) and a SafeDri Triple sump pump. Also to control the humidity levels, the TEAM installed CrawlSeal on the walls.

After visiting our booth at the Lakes Radio Family Expo, homeowner from Fergus Falls, MN, contacted TEAM Innovative to schedule her free waterproofing estimate.  Certified Field Inspector, Jason Kratcha, met with the homeowner and inspected the basement.  The entire home was made of concrete and brick - and water was coming in and running down the walls.

Jason made recommendations to install a BasementGutter drainage system to the perimeter of the basement, which would channel the water to a new SafeDri Triple sump pump.  He went over the installation process, warranty information and pricing.  The homeowner was impressed and the job was scheduled.   Another dry and happy homeowner in Fergus Falls, MN!

Another Foundation Stabilized in Woodbury, MN

Elizabeth E., from Woodbury, MN, noticed her basement walls were cracked and bowing and reached out to the experts at Innovative Basement Authority for a solution.  Certified Field Inspector, Nate Wendorf, visited the home and inspected the foundation.  Nate's recommendation for repair was the IntelliBrace foundation wall repair system.  The IntelliBrace is an adjustable steel I-beam system with two important benefits: stabilizing bowed or tilting walls, and (over time) forcing bowed or tilting wall sections back to their original position. All IntelliBrace components are manufactured to exacting standards, with an anti-corrosion zinc coating that will keep them looking like new for decades.

Elizabeth was impressed with the solution we offered and the project was scheduled and completed without any hiccups.  Heck - we even impressed the city inspector!

Another foundation stabilized in Woodbury, MN!

Basement Waterproofing in Fergus Falls, MN

Corrine H. from Fergus Falls, MN called TEAM Innovative to see what we could do about moisture and humidity issues in her basement.  She would get standing water with heavy rain and ran both a fan and dehumidifier 24 hours a day - all year long.   The home was built in the early 1900's and had a partial rock foundation.  She was a very avid canner and used her basement space almost every day.

After an inspection by Innovative specialist, Cary - it was decided the best approach for waterproofing was to install BasementGutter drainage to the interior perimeter of the basement, install a SafeDri Triple sump pump, add CrawlSeal moisture barrier to those rock walls and install a dehumidifier, which would drain directly into her sump.

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 for our service and craftsmanship.

We are well-known locally for our unique waterproofing products, custom designed to work well in any home.

Crawlspace Encapsulation in Dent, MN

After seeing our commercial on telelvision, Tim and Penny made the call to Innovative Basement Authority.  Tim & Penny had two crawlspaces - one with a dirt floor and one with a finished floor. Their only concern was that at times - a rotten smell came up from the crawlspace.  While this only happened on occasion, they wanted the problem corrected.

Certified Field Inspector, Jason Kratcha, met with Tim and Penny and inspected the spaces.  While both spaces were in good condition, with OK levels of relative humidity, Jason let them know that only way to ensure that odors did not return was to encapsulate the dirt floor area and install a dehumidifier.

Humidity and condensation in a crawl space is a recipe for disaster. Excess moisture leads to mold growth, wood rot, and foul odors, causing issues for your home's health, air quality, and value.

At Innovative Basement Authority, we specialize in preventing these problems with our crawl space dehumidifier and ventilation fan. As part of our complete crawl space encapsulation system, these products will ensure that your home has clean, dry air and help protect your crawl space from mold and other damage.

Since encapsulation, Tim and Penny have not noticed the smell even once.

If you have a musty crawlspace, allergies or just want to increase your dry storage area - call us today!
