Job Stories From Detroit Lakes, MN
Cabin Crawlspace Encapsulation in Detroit Lakes, MN

After searching on line for a contractor who could "seal" his crawlspace, improve its appearance and make it smell clean, Josh decided to make the call to the TEAM and dialed 877-365-0097!

CleanSpace drainage matting, CleanSpace vapor barrier and a SaniDry Sedona were the trifecta needed for the job!

The SaniDry Sedona offers giant performance in a small package. It's the world's most efficient, high-performance dehumidifier, without a bulky heat exchange core. The Sedona easily fits in small crawl spaces, yet has a powerful blower to effectively dry large crawl spaces. Mold and mildew are common in crawl spaces, but the Sedona keeps the relative humidity below 55%, so mold won't stand a chance. As a high-efficiency ENERGY STAR certified dehumidifier, the Sedona removes more moisture (100 pints per day) for less electricity cost than conventional models.

The SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier drains automatically and has a humidity sensor that monitors the air, so once it's installed, there's nothing else to do. Your crawl space will be drier and healthier - and so will the rest of your home too!

 

Cabin Saved from Standing Water in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota

We LOVE word-of-mouth referrals!  Jim W. from Detroit Lakes, MN., reached out to TEAM Innovative to solve standing water problems in the basement of his cabin.  There was a small, block wall addition added to the cabin in the 70's which housed the HVAC and water heater.  There was also an existing sump pit, however, the floors had standing water at all times.

As an experienced waterproofing company, Innovative Basement Systems helps homeowners solve their basement problems, permanently and with a warranty. We have over 10 years of experience in the industry, and have been recognized by the BBB and Basement Systems for our service and craftsmanship.

We are well-known for our patented waterproofing products, custom designed to work well in any home. As an authorized Basement Systems dealer, we are the only company able to provide you with these proven, patented solutions.

System design specialist,  Chris Goerhing, met with Jim and inspected the foundation and basement. Chris made recommendation for drain tile to the perimeter, as WaterGuard would channel the water to a new TripleSafe sump, which would be placed at the lowest spot of the basement - filling in the old pit.   Jim loved the plan, the warranty and service we provide after the project.    Since completion, his cabin has been DRY!

Another happy & DRY customer in Lakes Country!

Basement Turned to Crawl Space

Awhile back Innovative installed a complete waterproofing system in this homeowners basement. But it was not effective, the specialist and our Fargo branch manger went out to home. We then realized the lake level the house sat on had come up significantly, the basement was below the level of the lake. Innovative then came up with a new solution. We used StableFill to bring the floor of the basement to above the lake level essentially making the basement into a crawl space. Once this was done we used CleanSpace to encapsulate the crawl space. The homeowner was very happy with the end result, as well as our customer service and determiniation to find a solution to his water problems.

We have an 1,100 sq ft cabin where 1/2 of the cabin is slab on grade and the other half has concrete foundation (east side). There is only a small area to access under the cabin and the north east corner of the cabin has sagging/sloping floors which have bottle jacks underneath to help try to support (and they aren't doing a very good job). We would like to explore options on how to fix/stabilize the foundation. Thank You!

We have an existing 24x26 two story structure on a 4' block foundation. We recently demolished an adjacent structure (slab) to make way for a 22x26 two story addition. We'd like to excavate for a full basement on the addition. I have two problems. 1) supporting the 4' wall next to the addition, 2) structural load on the side foundations to allow an open floor plan. I'm looking for a concrete contractor as well as solution for my two problems. Is there a way to drive pilings in the ground next to the 4'foundation prior to pouring the new foundation?
