Basement Waterproofing in Minneapolis, MN

worker installing sump pump

While basements in Minneapolis, MN, were built with some protection against water and moisture, not all of them are completely watertight. Basements in Minneapolis are prone to leakage and other damage because of the area’s abundant rain, snow, moisture, humidity, and poor soil. 

Having a basement waterproofing expert like Innovative Basement Authority install basement waterproofing solutions and perform the repairs needed on your property is the only certain way to keep your basement dry. We locate and eliminate any sources of moisture or dampness to protect the basement and foundation of your house from any potential problems in the future.

Basement Problem Signs in Minneapolis

There are many different ways that issues in your Minneapolis basement will manifest themselves. Some of these issues could be challenging to identify, which is why it’s crucial to have the knowledge of local basement waterproofing experts. However, there are several problem signs you should watch out for that indicate a need for professional assistance. These include floods, musty smells, efflorescence, condensation, flooded stairs, leaking windows, floor cracks, and mold and mildew growth. For a thorough and free basement inspection and repair estimate, get in touch with Innovative Basement Authority right away if you detect any of these issues. 

What are the Causes of Basement Damage in Minneapolis?

Your Minneapolis home’s basement is damp and damaged for a variety of reasons. These causes include environmental factors like hydrostatic pressure and the clay bowl effect, which are brought on by the loamy and clay soils, frequent precipitation, snowfall, and snowmelt in the Minneapolis region. On average, Minneapolis receives 32 inches of rain and 52 inches of snow each year, so it’s no wonder basements leak and flood. Internal problems like broken sump pumps and plumbing leaks can also play a role in basement water leaks and other types of damage

Jake came over to do the inspection and was very thorough and professional. He explained what the problems were and gave us three levels of corrective measures. There was absolute no pressure on which to chose. We were very confident his choices.Hunter and Paul came to do the work. He told us what the project would entail and kept us up to date each step of the way. He and Paul were very professional and patient as we asked questions. We had one question Regarding mold and discussed it with Hunter and Jake. Jake said he would be in Grand Forks for an inspection and would come over and take a look. He and Hunter agreed on what they could do.Hunter and Paul worked so hard. When they were done he walked us though everything they had done and why. They were great.

I enjoyed working with Patrick and then Isaiah McKeonn and Chris Popovich. They did great work. The concreate was leveled so precisely that I can now role over the transition from the driveway to the garage with my manual wheelchair which I could not do before. I will be contacting IBA again to fix our sidewalk which needs expert leveling next year. Thanks, IBA.

My project was completed by innovative this week. The communication throughout this whole process has been great, and the crew of Andrew and Ben was fantastic. They showed up on time, completed the project on schedule, and did a great job of cleaning up. The final project exceeded my expectations. I am so happy I finally decided to call Innovative to help protect our home.

I had Isaiah S, Matt, Jared and Josh come over and do a basement waterproofing project – they were helpful, detailed, explanatory, and prompt! They even found a broken outflow pipe under the concrete that had rotted away, and while that was another expensive fix – it was a GREAT catch by their team!

We thought our window was leaking water, turns out it was cracks in our foundation Adam Johnson was the inspector that came out and walked over the process with me. He even came back a second time to answer questions my husband had in person. Very professional, very helpful, excellent customer service! The reality of leaking foundation and mold growing in our living space would have been much more overwhelming had Adam not been so informative and quick to respond. I'd give 100 stars if I could.

Chad was awesome on service day. Answered every question professionally and explained the job before start. After the job was complete he explained everything that was done again and presented pictures during the process. Very professional. The only complaint I have was after getting the total quote, I asked for a breakdown of cost 3 times and didn’t receive it until the working day before the job was to start, roughly 2 1/2 months after the initial quote. I had an absurd mobility charge that costed 1/3 of my total job cost that wasn’t explained until service day. So it made it very hard to cancel with such a long wait for the work in the first place or try and get additional bids without knowing exactly what I was paying for.
