After hearing years of complaints from staff about musty smells and increased allergy symptoms when at work - Cary P. finally reached out to the Basement Experts at Innovative Basement Systems to encapsulate the massive crawlspace in West Fargo, ND.
Upon inspection, relative humidity levels were very elevated at 72.2% and there was nothing but dirt floors and lots of debris.

SmartSump Basket x 4

Every building is a system, and every part of that system plays a role that impacts the rest of the structure. If the building has a crawl space with a dirt floor and it begins to rot the wood, grow mold, or experience structural problems, it will be extended to every other part of the building.
At Innovative Basement Systems, we specialize in crawl space encapsulation. We offer free crawl space repair quotes in the Eastern Montana, North Dakota and Minnesota, including areas like Fargo, Moorhead and West Fargo, ND.
What is the humidity level in your home or place of business? Keep relative humidity under 50% to halt mold growth and keep the air in healthy condition. By installing CleanSpace and a SaniDry dehumidifier, along with SmartSump crawlspace sump pump - we were able to dramatically improve the energy efficiency and air quality of this building.

System design specialist, Adam Johnson, visited the home and performed an inspection. The crawlspace opening was approximately 24" x 18". Height was roughly three feet.

We LOVE word-of-mouth referrals! Homeowners from Crookston, MN, reached out to Innovative after their friends recommended us. They were concerned about their foundation as three walls were visibly bowed and cracked. System design specialist, Adam Johnson, visited the homeowners and performed an inspection. There was inward movement and horizontal cracking and therefore, stabilization with PowerBraces was recommended. The PowerBrace 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.
Installation was only interrupted briefly, due to a gas line, but other than that - went seamlessly - and now the homeowners have peace of mind, knowing their foundation is stabilized and warrantied for a lifetime.
