Job Stories From Saint Paul, MN
Crawlspace Encapsulation in St. Paul, MN

Looking to improve energy efficiency in their home, St. Paul, MN homeowners made the call to TEAM Innovative. Certified Field Inspector, Chad Neegard, met with the homeowners and performed an inspection.  Chad's most concerning find was the dirt floor crawlspace and recommedations were immediately made for encapsulation.

(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 has high humidity and begins to rot, grow mold, or experience structural problems, the problems will extend throughout the entire home.)

Since encapsulation with CrawlSeal drainage matting and CrawlSeal moisture barrier, the home has been much more comfortable and healthy and they have peace of mind that their largest investment is now protected, not to mention the added storage area!

If you have a dirt floor crawlspace, please call us today.  You'll have only wished you would have called sooner!

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.

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!

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.
