Homeowners in Stillwater, MN had been living in their home for 15 years when they began noticing their foundations walls bowing. Their home was built in the 1940's and was in need of a foundation repair system. Bowing walls was their main concern however, there were cracks forming in their walls as well. After they contacted Innovative, a Certified Field Inspector was sent to the home to create a solution plan. The TEAM then installed 10 wall anchors around the foundation walls. The bowing walls are now back to their original, straight position.
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.

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!
