All PowerBrace components are manufactured to exacting standards, with an anti-corrosion zinc coating that will keep them looking like new for decades.

Job Stories From Saint Paul, MN
Crawlspace Encapsulation in North Saint Paul, MN

William and Lorie from North St. Paul MN made the call to Innovative Basment Systems after receiving our coupon in the Valpak mailer. They were interested in encapsulating their crawlspaceYour home is a system, and every part of that system plays a role that affects the rest of the structure. If your crawl space begins to rot, grow mold, or experience structural problems, this will extend to every part of your home.

System design specialist, Dustin Sagedahl, met with William and Lorie and performed an inspection.  They actually had a 1/2 basement and 1/2 crawlspace and had mentioned they were very interested in our SaniDry dehumidifier as it offers giant performance in a small package. It's the world's most efficient, high-performance dehumidifier! 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.

Dustin agreed that the SaniDry would make a world of difference, especially after installation of CleanSpace drainage matting and CleanSpace vapor barrier.  William & Lorie were in agreement with the plan and signed off on the contract and they now have a healthy, dry and more comfortable home.

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.
