Job Stories From Chisago County, MN
Piering in Wyoming, MN

Homeowners in Wyoming, MN were beginning to notice their home becoming uneven and their home's foundation beginning to crack. With foundation damage as a huge concern, the homeowners contacted Innovative.

After arriving, the Innovative TEAM concluded the home was in need of foundation repair. The TEAM then installed numerous helical piers around the home and was successful in stabilizing the foundation and home.

Chisago City, MN Home Air Sealing

After homeowners were beginning to notice ice damming on their roof, they contacted Innovative for help. Ice damming is caused when warm air from the inside your home heats up the underside of the roof causing ice/snow to melt. Then the melted ice runs down the roof and refreezes when it gets to the gutters and overhang. Thus causing icicles to form on your home. This causes water to get trapped (refer to diagram) beneath the ice build up. 

Ice dams can cause damage to your home. It can cause your roof shingles to get damaged and leak. With this happening to their homeowners, they knew something had to be done. The TEAM then determined the home's attic needed to be air sealed. They first performed a home energy audit to determine exactly where in the attic needed to be sealed. 

With the audit done, the TEAM began the air sealing process. Now that the project is complete, the homeowners haven't had any more ice damming and the damage to their roof has been repaired.

Radon Mitigation & Crawlspace Encapsulation in Lindstrom, MN

After homeowners in Lindstrom, MN, had radon test levels come back at  6.6 - they made the call to Innovative Basement Systems for radon gas mitigation as well as crawlspace encapsulation.  Matthew Stromgren, system design specialist, visted the homeowners and took a look at the crawlspace.  The sump pump was located in the crawlspace and it had about a 2' x 2' opening access point.

CleanSpace with drainage matting was recommended for encapsulation in conjunction with mitigation.  The before and after pics are pretty impressive - and now the homeownwer can rest assured his home is healthy and dry!  

Basement Waterproofing in Stacy, MN

After doing some research on the internet, homeowner from Stacy, MN, reached out to the basement experts!  (That's Us!)  She had complaints of foundation issues, however, her largest concern was water seepage from the NW corner of the house.  She also mentioned crumbling foundation and lots of heat loss in the winter.

System design specialist, Jerry Bartell, visited the home and inspected the basement.  His recommendations for water control were a drainage systemand new sump pump.  The homeowner was in agreement and WaterGuard and a TripleSafe were scheduled for installation.  Our most popular drainage system, WaterGuard, is the ideal solution for most basement waterproofing applications.  Unlike old-fashioned drain tile systems installed on the outside of the home, WaterGuard® is installed just underneath the perimeter edge of the basement floor.

When you have a perimeter drainage system installed in your home, your sump pump is your main line of defense against a basement flood. If you can't count on your sump system to be powerful or reliable enough, then you can't count on a dry basement. And what good is the space if it gets wet?  The TripleSafe sump pump is the answer!  After installation of both the homeowner is resting comfortably knowing her water worries are a thing of the past!


Cabin Crawlspace Encapsulation in Rush City, MN

After stopping by our exhibit at the Minneapolis Lake & Cabin Show, cabin owners - Jeri & Doug, requested a free estimate appointment for crawlspace encapsulation at their cabin.  The crawlspace had a sand bottom and was very damp, musty and actually flooded in the past, due to a high water table.   Innovative's system design specialist, Bob Joyce, met with Jeri and Doug and inspected the crawlspace. Bob made recommendations for encapsulation with drainage mattingCleanSpace vapor barrier and a SmartSump sump pump.   Bob went over the installation process, warranty information as well a review of all costs involved.  Jeri & Doug were impressed with the plan and signed off on the contract.

Another dry and healthy cabin in lakes area!

PolyLevel Foam Injection Concrete Lifting in Rush City, MN

Barefoot is the worst way to stub a toe! Settled concrete around the Rush City Aquatic Center posed quite the tripping hazard so they called on the experts from Innovative Basement Systems for a solution.   System design specialist, Matthew Stromgren, met with Jeanne K., to inspect the areas of concern.  Matthew made recommendations for PolyLevel foam injection to lift the concrete back to original position.  He provided them with an estimate and it was accepted.  The job was completed and turned out fantastic!

Polymer injection harnesses the expansive force of a structural grade geopolymer to provide fast concrete leveling, fill voids in soil and strengthen soil that has poor load-bearing qualities.

The 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 Systems, can control the application to create just the right amount of raising pressure.   No more stubbed toes!

Squeaky floors were driving John, from Chisago City, MN, nuts!  He made the call to the foundation experts at Innovative Basement Systems.  

System design specialist, Eric Rysdam, met with John and inspected the crawlspace below his main level.  While the access was only 2'x3' - Eric was able to gain about 4-5 feet of clearance once inside the crawlspace.  Recommendations were made to replace the wood braces with SmartJack crawlspace stabilizers - an adjustable support system for sagging, providing lift of failing floor joists & beams.

John was in agreement with the recommendation and since installation his floors have stopped squeaking and his doors open and as they

Egress Window Installed in Thief River Falls, MN

Homeowner from Thief River Falls, MN had a room in the basement that his daughter had been living in, but it did no have an egress window that was up to code. There had also been a plumbing leak that caused some sheet rock in the bedroom to be removed, so it was perfect timing to address the egress.

Now he has peace of mind and his daughter has a beautiful new, bright window.
