Issues with foundations are often caused by broken or weakened soil that can no longer support the weight of the structure. Some of the major signs of this are cracked floors or walls, tilting chimneys, street creep, or inward bowing walls. When this occurs, one of the ways to remedy the problem is to install foundation piers and jack posts which will correct uneven or sloping floors. Wall anchors and I-Beam wall braces are also good for fixing bowing, leaning walls, providing a permanent solution for foundation issues.

Bowing Basement Wall Reinforced with CarbonArmor in Minneapolis, MN

Homeowner from Minneapolis, MN, contacted TEAM Innovative regarding a basement foundation wall that was bowing fairly significantly.  System design specialist, Chad Neegard, visited the home and inspected the foundation.  Chad offered a few options for stabilization, ultimately deciding together on CarbonArmor; innovative product development undertaken by aerospace engineers and the U.S. Dept. of Defense is now being applied to the age-old problem of cracked and bowing foundation walls. The CarbonArmor Wall Reinforcing System, available from Foundation Supportworks, utilizes the same technology used to support bridges, skyscrapers and bomb shelters to stabilize building foundations that have sustained damage such as cracks and bowing.

The aerospace industry has come to rely on the light but strong characteristics of carbon fiber technology, and the U.S. Dept. of Defense uses the same strapping technique to reinforce bomb shelters. With this kind of a pedigree, the CarbonArmor System allows homeowners to stabilize bowing foundations quickly and affordably and this homeowner was happy and grateful for that!

Basement Waterproofing in Minneapolis, MN

After looking for waterproofing companies on HomeAdvisor.com - homeowner from MPLS, MN contacted the TEAM at Innovative for a complimentary estimate on basement waterproofing.  We sent out Pete Salazar, system design specialist, to inspect the basement and talk through the waterproofing process with the homeowner.  Relative humidity levels in the basement were at 62% - which leads to mold growth.  The basement was small with low headroom - lots of cement flaking, debris and paint mold growth, again - due to high humidity.   

Pete made recommendations for CleanSpace vapor barrier to the walls as well as the SandiDry Sedona dehumidifier.  He educated the homeownner on the products, warranty information as well as reviewing the estimate in detail.   Homeowner was in agreement with the waterproofing plan and we got the job scheduled and completed in no time.

Now, the home is dry and a much healthier, more comfortable environment! That's what we do here, everyday!

Basement Waterproofing & PolyLevel Concrete Lifting in Minneapolis, MN

Homeowner from Minneapolis, MN reached out to the TEAM at Innovative after researcing basement waterproofing on HomeAdvisor.com.  There was water coming in her basement from one corner and wall.  System design specialist, Eric Rysdam, visited the home and quickly noticed the sidewalk along the problem side had considerable settling and was more than likely the cause of the water, so recommendation was made for concrete leveling with PolyLevel.   The basement also did not have proper drainage so a WaterGuard drain system was recommended as well as a TripleSafe sump pump.  

After installation, the homeowner was very pleased - expecially because we were able to keep the dust to a minimum! 

Waterproofing in Minneapolis, MN

Homeowners in Minneapolis, MN were having troubles with their basement having a high humidity level. To add to the problem, they were also noticing pooling water in several areas throughout the basement. They previously had other contractors out to look at the problem who gave quotes for exterior waterproofing but, unsure about that option, the homeowners contacted Innovative for help.  

After our system design specialist examined the basement, he found that exterior waterproofing wouldn't resolve the issue at hand and proposed an interior waterproofing system. Due to the water pooling in the center of the floor, we would be able to install a drainage system around the perimeter of the basement and through the center of the floor to collect water wherever it might pool.

Since the installment, the homeowners are happy to report they've had no water troubles!

When Mudjacking Failed, Homeowner Turns to PolyLevel

After doing some research online, the home owner then gave Innovative Basement Systems a call after reading about PolyLevel on our website. System design specialist, Eric Wicktor, came out to the house for a free estimate and discussed what PolyLevel could do for the home owner to make his drive way more safe, and of course leveled. Since then the homeowner has not had his cement slab sink!

Sloping Home Makes Noise In St. Louis Park, MN

Home Owners from St. Louis Park, MN called Innovative Basement Systems after they started to notice popping and cracking noises, as well as having one corner of their house being sloped since 1993. They also noticed in the past year when construction was being done by their house, heavy machinery would cause their home to shake. Afterwards the popping noises and visibility of a settling first floor was even more noticeable. When a specialist checked out the property he could see that the house was settling and sinking more and more.

After talking with the specialist, the homeowners realized they were in need of foundation repairs. The crew installed Helical Piers using a standard bracket. After the job was finished the homeowners no longer heard the cracking or popping noises, and the first floor no longer sloped.
