Ramsey County Foundation Experts

For the past decade Innovative Basement Authority has been the trusted expert for foundation repair, basement finishing & more. With a dedication to expert work and access to over 28 products we have the experience and tools for the job. Give us a call to have any questions answered & get a free, no-obligation estimate. Let's get the work started on your Ramsey 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 Ramsey County experts a call.

Ramsey County Basement Finishing & Remodeling

If you are planning on finishing or remodeling your Ramsey County basement please give us a call first. The reason why we ask this is that many homeowners will install traditional materials like wood and drywall in the basement. Unfortunately if these materials get wet from a burst pipe or leaking water heater your new expensive basement can quickly be ruined.
Our Products Include: 
  • Waterproof, Washable, Insulated Walls
  • Mold-Resistant, No-Sag suspended Ceilings
  • Modular Carpet, Tile & Faux Wood Flooring
  • Energy-efficient, Double-paned Basement Windows
  • Attractive Basement Window Wells
  • French, Bifold, Louvre & Six-paneled steel Doors
So we use completely inorganic, waterproof materials that allow you to have an attractive finished basement that is safe from water damage. The goal is to give you a finished basement that lasts a lifetime. We provide free inspections and cost estimates along with financing options for work done. Make sure to get started today!
Job Stories From Ramsey County, MN
Damp, Musty Smelling Basement in St. Paul, MN

A family in St. Paul MN gave Innovative Basement Authority a Call after their basement started feeling damp and producing a musty smell even though there was no water in their basement. After meeting with  Certified Field Inspector, Keith, and learning about their options, they decided to go with a Dehumidifier system. 

A crew was sent out and installed the system to help improve air quality in their basement and prevent mold growth. The Dehumidifier dehumidifier that can remove 110 pints of water per day compared to 30-40 pints from a store bought dehumidifier. With its completely digital interface, you can set it and forget it, or install a dehumidifier control box in your finished space. After the Dehumidifier was installed, the family no longer had a damp or musty smell in their basement.

Waterproofing a Basement in St. Paul, MN

Ramona and Raymond D. were experiencing inbound water from the walls and floors of the unfinished portion of their basement when they gave Innovative Basement Authority a call.  After meeting with Certified Field Inspector, Neal Schumacher, they decided to move forward with a waterproofing plan before any more damage was done.

Foreman Ryan Wellcome and crew arrived to Ramona and Raymond's home to install the waterproofing products. To keep the humidity low the crew first installed the Basement Air System which dehumidifies and filters the air in the home at the same time. To stop water from entering the home, the crew installed a BasementGutter Drainage System underneath the perimeter edge of the basement floor along with a BasementGutter Port which will be used as a draining system for the Dehumidifier Dehumidifier. To seal the unfinished portion of the basement the crew installed CrawlSeal Wall System, a durable bright white liner that prevents water vapor and humidity from passing through. 

Since the waterproofing system has been put in place, their home as been dry and water free. Both Ramona and Raymond now have a sense of relief knowing their basement will be dry for years to come.

Waterproofing rental property in St. Paul, MN

St. Paul, MN Rental property owner, Tim, called TEAM Innovative to remedy a recurring water issue in one of his basements.  Upon our arrival, Certified Field Inspector, Keith Hansen, quickly noticed a few issues needing attention.  After making his recommendations, an egress surround was placed outside of the egress window, a BasementGutter drainage system was installed as well as a SafeDri Triple sump pump.  After the project was complete, both the tenant and property owner were thrilled to never have to worry about water again!

PolyRenewal Correction to Front Steps in St. Paul, MN

Homeowner from St. Paul, MN reached out to the experts at Innovative Basement Authority after seeing our coupon in Valpak mailer.  Her front steps were sinking and pulling away from the home and front door.

Advantages of PolyRenewal®:

  • Strong and lightweight: The expanding foam used in the PolyRenewal® process weighs only about 4lbs. per cubic ft. compared to 120lbs. per cubic ft. for stadard fill material. PolyRenewal® can support a substantial load without imposing added weight on unstable soil.
  • Waterproof: Unlike mudjacking fill, PolyRenewal® expanding foam will not wash away once it is cured.
  • Environmentally-friendly: PolyRenewal® material does not react with soil or moisture and does not release harmful chemicals.
  • Fast-acting: The expanding polymer typically reaches its final strength and is able to support weight within 15 minutes.
  • Adjustable: The chemical reaction that causes the foam to expand can be adjusted to control how much the concrete is lifted. A special formulation can be used for projects that require water displacement.
  • Noninvasive: PolyRenewal® does not use the large equipment required for other mudjacking techniques. The polymer injection foam is applied through small holes drilled in the slab, leaving little to no mess behind.

Certified Field Inspector, Bob Joyce, recommended PolyRenewal and the homeowner was in agreement.  After the PolyRenewal correction she was also happy to learn of our extended five year warranty!

Crawlspace Encapsulation in North Saint Paul, MN

William and Lorie from North St. Paul MN made the call to Innovative Basment Systems after receiving our coupon in the Valpak mailer. They were interested in encapsulating their crawlspace. Your home is a system, and every part of that system plays a role that affects the rest of the structure. If your crawl space begins to rot, grow mold, or experience structural problems, this will extend to every part of your home.

Certified Field Inspector, Dustin Sagedahl, met with William and Lorie and performed an inspection.  They actually had a 1/2 basement and 1/2 crawlspace and had mentioned they were very interested in our dehumidifier as it offers giant performance in a small package. It's the world's most efficient, high-performance dehumidifier! It easily fits in small crawl spaces, yet has a powerful blower to effectively dry large crawl spaces. Mold and mildew are common in crawl spaces, but the dehumidifier keeps the relative humidity below 55%, so mold won't stand a chance. As a high-efficiency dehumidifier, it removes more moisture (100 pints per day) for less electricity cost than conventional models.

Dustin agreed that the dehumidifier would make a world of difference, especially after installation of CrawlSeal drainage matting and CrawlSeal vapor barrier.  William & Lorie were in agreement with the plan and signed off on the contract and they now have a healthy, dry and more comfortable home.
