Polk County Concrete Leveling, Radon, & Foundation Experts

For the past decade Innovative Basement Systems has been the trusted expert for foundation repair, basement finishing & more. With a dedication to expert work and access to over 28 patented products we have the experience and tools for the job. Give us a call to have any questions answered & get a free, no-obligation estimate. Let's get the work started on your Polk County home. 

Foundation Repair & Concrete Leveling

If your home is suffering from foundation issues let us know. We can have one of our foundation specialists visit & inspect the problem. We can then identify and explain the best method to repair the issue. The foundation products we choose to use have a 25 year warranty.

Repairs for:
  • Wall Cracks
  • Bowing Walls
  • Uneven Floors
  • Settling Foundations
  • Uneven Concrete Slabs       
We Use: 
  • Wall Anchors
  • I-Beam Wall Braces
  • Foundation & Slab Piers
  • Crawl Space Jack Posts
  • PolyLEVEL 

We also deal with sinking and settling concrete. To fix sinking concrete slabs we use PolyLEVEL, a polyurethane foam. The foam is injected through small holes drilled into the slab. Beneath the slab the foam expands to fill all the gaps and lifts the concrete back to a level position. You don't need to deal with cracks or tripping hazards. Give our Polk County experts a call.

Polk County Basement Finishing & Remodeling

If you are planning on finishing or remodeling your Polk County basement please give us a call first. The reason why we ask this is that many homeowners will install traditional materials like wood and drywall in the basement. Unfortunately if these materials get wet from a burst pipe or leaking water heater your new expensive basement can quickly be ruined. 

Our Products Include: 
  • Waterproof, Washable, Insulated Walls
  • Mold-Resistant, No-Sag suspended Ceilings   
  • Modular Carpet, Tile & Faux Wood Flooring

  • Energy-efficient, Double-paned Basement Windows
  • Attractive SunHouse Basement Window Wells
  • French, Bifold, Louvre & Six-paneled steel Doors

So we use completely inorganic, waterproof materials that allow you to have an attractive finished basement that is safe from water damage. The goal is to give you a finished basement that lasts a lifetime.

We provide free inspections and cost estimates along with financing options for work done. Make sure to get started today!

Basement Waterproofing in East Grand Forks, MN

During home buying negotiations, it's important to know what costs are going to be incurred to correct current issues,  That is why potential home buyers in East Grand Forks, MN, called on the expertise of Innovative Basement Systems to inspect, diagnose and correct basement water problems in the home they was looking at purchasing.

System design specialist, Jason Kratcha, met with the potential buyers and did a complete inspection of the basement with them.  He made recommendation for a WaterGuard drainage system that would lead any potential water directly to the sump pump - but underneath the concrete.  (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.)  He also highly recommended a new sump pump - specifically, the TripleSafe, our most reliable sump pump system which provides three levels of protection for the basement and peace of mind.

Jason went through all the product information as well as installation processes, he covered warranty information and after a complete review of the estimate, the homeowners signed off and the job went on the schedule.  

Completion went as planned and the happy homeowners have a dry and protected basement!

Foundation Stabilized in Crookston, MN

Debbie, was the sister that was taking care of their house in Crookston, MN. She has three brothers that lived in the house and her and her husband visit from Illinois. They were in the process of gathering bids to address the bowing and cracking basement walls.

When foundation problems plague your home, they can cause a myriad of threats to its appearance, value, and safety. Hiring a knowledgeable contractor quickly is the best way to find the root of the problem and mitigate any damage. With recognition from Foundation Supportworks and several Builders Associations for our hard work and expertise, Innovative Basement Systems is the best choice to solve your foundation problems.

Both of the quotes she had received explained the scope of the project to include exterior excavation. She was happy to learn that Innovative could achieve permanent stability without having to excavate and our prices were also more appealing.  PowerBraces and Wall Anchors were the recommedation from Brady Bergquist, system design specialist for Innovative Basement Systems.  The job was completed without any hiccups and now Debbie and her husband can rest assured that the brothers are in home with a stable foundation.


Crawlspace Encapsulation in Mentor, MN

At Innovative Basement Systems, it's our job to make sure that your musty crawlspace is transformed into a clean, dry, and energy-efficient space.  Most homeowners aren't happy with their crawl space environment. And there's a good reason for that-- most crawl spaces don't offer much to be smiling about.  Typical crawl spaces are moldy, foul-smelling spaces that homeowners avoid at all costs. Many of them flood, and they're often filled with debris. In more extreme cases, they can be rotting structures with rodents, animals, and other pests living within.

Richard and Dawn called Innovative Basement Systems as they knew the time had come to encapsulate their crawlspace.  Living close to a lake does not fare well with a dirt crawlspace and lack of a sump pump!

No worries, system design specialist, Steve Gustafson to the rescue!  Steve inspected the crawlspace and noted how damp the soils were.  Recommendations were made for encapsulation with CleanSpace drainage matting, CleanSpace moisture barrier and installation of a SmartSump sump pump.

Since encapsulation, the home has been incredibly more comfortable.  Call for your encapsulation estimate today!
