Homeowner from Woodbury, MN, noticed her basement walls were cracked and bowing and reached out to the experts at Innovative Basement Systems for a solution.  System design specialist, Nate Wendorf, visited the home and inspected the foundation.  Nate's recommendation for repair was the PowerBrace foundation wall repair system.  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. All PowerBrace components are manufactured to exacting standards, with an anti-corrosion zinc coating that will keep them looking like new for decades.

Homeowner from St. Paul, MN reached out to the experts at Innovative Basement Systems after receiving our coupon in the Valpak mailer.  Her front steps were sinking and pulling away from the home and front door and also caused some unleveling of her sidewalk area.

Advantages of PolyLevel®:

  • Strong and lightweight: The expanding foam used in the PolyLevel® process weighs only about 4lbs. per cubic ft. compared to 120lbs. per cubic ft. for stadard fill material. PolyLevel® can support a substantial load without imposing added weight on unstable soil. 
  • Waterproof: Unlike mudjacking fill, PolyLevel® expanding foam will not wash away once it is cured.
  • Environmentally-friendly: PolyLevel® material does not react with soil or moisture and does not release harmful chemicals.
  • Fast-acting: The expanding polymer typically reaches its final strength and is able to support weight within 15 minutes.
  • Adjustable: The chemical reaction that causes the foam to expand can be adjusted to control how much the concrete is lifted. A special formulation can be used for projects that require water displacement.
  • Noninvasive: PolyLevel® does not use the large equipment required for other mudjacking techniques. The polymer injection foam is applied through small holes drilled in the slab, leaving little to no mess behind.  

System design specialist, Bob Joyce, recommended PolyLevel and the homeowner was in agreement.  After the PolyLevel correction she was also happy to learn of our extended five year warranty!

Waterproofing a Basement in St. Paul, MN

Ramona and Raymond D. were experiencing inbound water from the walls and floors of the unfinished portion of their basement when they gave Innovative Basement Systems a call.  After meeting with System Design Specialist, Neal Schumacher, they decided to move forward with a waterproofing plan before any more damage was done.

Foreman Ryan Wellcome and crew arrived to Ramona and Raymond's home to install the waterproofing products. To keep the humidity low the crew first installed the SaniDry XP Basement Air System which dehumidifies and filters the air in the home at the same time. To stop water from entering the home, the crew installed a WaterGuard Drainage System underneath the perimeter edge of the basement floor along with a WaterGuard Port which will be used as a draining system for the SaniDry Dehumidifier. To seal the unfinished portion of the basement the crew installed CleanSpace Wall System, a durable bright white liner that prevents water vapor and humidity from passing through. 

Since the waterproofing system has been put in place, their home as been dry and water free. Both Ramona and Raymond now have a sense of relief knowing their basement will be dry for years to come.

Noticed some water leakage in the Well room when it rains. The Well room was sealed when we bought it. I am not sure what it's called but we were told by the inspector that due to the uneven concrete we have outside. It was causing the rain to piled up and destroying the foundation. You can see dirt on the wall in our basement due to the water I am guessing.

I'd like your recommendations and cost estimates for sealing and mitigating water intrusion in my recently purchased 1940 block basement (full, unfinished). The basement is currently leaking at one end (obvious hydraulic leak at wall/floor seam), which began producing puddle about 1week after snow melt, at a rate of 1 gallon/week. Existing interior metal floor "gutter" (a 1-inch ridge approximately 3 inches from wall, running around most of basement floor) is ineffectual due to uneven basement floor. I look forward to hearing from you soon (knowing this is undoubtedly a busy time for you all). Question: does your free estimate include a visual or on-site inspection of any kind?

Hi! We are in the process of negotiating closing terms on a home in Midway, St Paul. One of the items we are looking to have resolve is to fix a sagging enclosed front-porch that has settled. The front concrete steps are also leaning. It is pretty dramatically leaning to one side, so I was hoping to get an estimate of what it would cost to lift/jack up and fix the porch and also level the concrete front steps. We are hoping to have the sellers cover the cost and would then hire out the work. Thanks! -AJ
