I was very happy with Dan Supan. He showed up on time, forgave the appearance of my cluttered, cobwebby basement, did a lot of measuring and thoroughly explained his proposed solution. He was very personable, and we talked a bit about our Air Force experiences, including the C-130s on which he worked and in which I traveled many an hour in my 16 post-active-duty years in the Minnesota Air Guard. Whether the work is priced fairly, I have no idea. My signing a contract for the work w/o obtaining two competing bids, or at least one -- and checking references -- is almost unprecedented. Your company's A+ BBB rating was a major consideration in my decision. (I checked with BBB to make sure that your advertised A+ rating was accurate.) That the work could be completed in one day also influenced me strongly. The only downsides are having to empty half the room where the work is to be done and after completion having to hire a handyman to cut down a workbench that won't fit back into its original space.

Homeowner from Somerset, WI, contacted the TEAM at Innovative Basement Systems after searching for basement waterproofers on the internet. System design specialist, Dan Supan, crossed the Wisconsin border and visited the homeowner to inspect the basement. He was experiencing water coming in from where the floor meets the wall as well as along cracks in flooring and walls. Dan offered his expert recommendations for installation of WaterGuard - perimeter drainage system- as well as a TripleSafe sump pump and lastly (but just as important!) a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier. These three things are an integral part of basement waterproofing and are all top of the line for effectiveness and efficiency.
The homeowner went over installation, warranty information and the estimate with Dan in detail and decided to move forward and get the job scheduled - saving 5% for signing the contract the same day as the estimate!
Dry and enjoying a much healthier basement in Somerset, Wisconsin!

Troy S. of Lindstrom, MN reached out to TEAM Innovative about his barn. The barn had a full basement under it. Nine foot wall height and was leaning about 7 inches to the side. The 90 ft length wall was pushing in and that is causing the other side which is walkout to bow out 7 inches. Biggest concern is getting the barn straight as they were wanting to re-roof the barn with tin and need straight lines to do so.
Also, the support beams down middle were leaning as well and almost out of the pockets. System design specialist, Dan Supan, met with Troy and performed the inspection. Troy really was impressed with our dynamic system. He had talked to a barn restoration company out of WI, but they had not been out yet to look at it.
Dan & Troy had great conversation about what Innovative could do and ultimately we completed the job.
Another happy customer in Lindstrom, MN!
John of Maplewood, MN called on Innovative Basement Systems to inspect an area of settling where an egress widow seemed to be pulling away from the home. System design specialist, Dan Supan, met with John and performed an inspection. Dan was able to detect inward bowing and highly recommended removall of the drywall to get a firm grasp on what was happening to the foundation. John eventually did remove the drywall and was in shock - he said what he saw was "catastrophic" and was so glad that Dan urged him to open up the wall. John even went on to say that "Dan's decade of experience is reflected in his excellent problem solving skills. He is an employee that should be retained."
Innovative restored John's foundation by installing PowerBraces to halt inward movement and even allow for straightening over time.

Andrew of Saint Paul, MN called in with concerns of leaking water in his basement - it had been getting worse with the increased rain fall and he even had to pull up the carpet and cut away some of the drywall.

Homeowner from North Oaks, MN, knew she had to do something to correct her bowing wall in her tuck-under garage. She was smart and had done her homework (no pun intended as she is a school teacher!). After seeing us online during her searches, she gave us a call to schedule her free estimate. System design specialist, Dan Supan, met with the homeower and inspected not only the garage but the soil surrounding it. Dan educated the homeowner on our patented foundation wall repair system, PowerBrace, that's designed to stabilize failing walls and provide the potential to straighten walls over time. These steel I-beams will stabilize the wall in its current position without any further adjustment. Over time, the PowerBrace system can be tightened to make bowing or tilting walls straighter and more vertical.
The homeowner was thrilled with this remedy and scheduled the job with Innovative! A 25-year warranty topped it off!
Would you prefer an aluminum egress well or a plastic composite well, similar to fiberglass? Would you prefer a French drain be included in your estimate so that water doesn't fill the well and rust the aluminum? What about laying down plywood on your lawn to protect it and lessen the mess from the installation?
All of these reasons and more led to this egress transformation in Burnsville, MN. I didn't even mention the aesthetics or energy savings!
