Concrete Lifting and Leveling in Minneapolis, MN 

Your home’s exterior concrete has a significant impact on the property’s aesthetic appeal and safety. Its instability and cracks might cause people to trip and fall on it, jeopardize the value of your house, and damage your foundation. Instead of letting these issues linger and get worse, it’s crucial to properly handle them. 

Our team at Foundation Recovery Systems is well aware of the effects of Des Moines’ continuous rains and unstable soil on concrete structures like sidewalks and driveways. We also know how to use a state-of-the-art lifting and leveling process to restore the functionality, security, and beauty of your home’s concrete slabs.

Concrete Problems in Minneapolis

Concrete is a tough substance that can resist a lot of wear and tear, but damage can eventually cause concrete to deteriorate over time. If your concrete is compromised, it will manifest itself in a number of obvious ways. Your home’s concrete may be cracked, sunken, or uneven, as well as have pits, flaking, or staining. Any concrete surface, such as your driveway, sidewalk, pool deck, outdoor steps, garage floor, and internal slab floor, is susceptible to these problems. 

Causes of Concrete Damage in Minneapolis

Concrete deterioration in Minneapolis can stem from various factors, but environmental exposure, including the local climate and soil conditions, is most prevalent. The area’s distinct soil composition can shrink and dry out due to insufficient moisture or swell with excess water. Minneapolis, which experiences significant rainfall and snowfall annually, often faces the latter scenario.

This can result in clay expansion and silt erosion, leaving concrete structures without support. As the soil shifts to find equilibrium, concrete slabs may sink. IBA understands these local challenges and offers specialized lifting and leveling services to address and repair the resulting concrete issues effectively.

Concrete Leveling Solutions in Minneapolis

In Minneapolis, mudjacking and repouring have been the conventional methods for fixing concrete, but these approaches are often inefficient, expensive, and disruptive. IBA provides a superior lifting and leveling solution for unstable concrete around your home. Our polyurethane injections offer a minimally invasive option that is easy for our teams to implement, causing minimal damage to your property.

This method is advantageous because it is lightweight, strong, rapidly curing, and adaptable. Polyurethane foam injections from IBA can revitalize the external concrete features of your home, including steps, porches, pool decks, patios, driveways, sidewalks, garage floors, and even internal slab floors.

Why Choose Innovative Basement Authority?

Choosing the right method to fix unstable concrete the first time is essential. For over 25 years, homeowners in Minneapolis have trusted Innovative Basement Authority for lifting and leveling their concrete. We understand how the region’s variable climate and challenging soil types, such as silty clay, can adversely affect concrete structures.

Don’t let damaged concrete compromise your family’s safety or your home’s beauty. Rely on our experienced team to mend your concrete with our reliable, state-of-the-art polyurethane injections. Contact us today to schedule your free inspection and estimate.

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.

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.

Chad and his crew of Drinor and Greg did an excellent job and were VERY fast. This was a stressful enough time with some major basement issues but they all made it that much easier.

I really appreciated working with Innovative Basement Authority with securing my house in many ways (Piers, foam, beams, etc.) amounting to many different projects completed at this point. I had five competitive estimates from other companies but the guarantees, price, and options provided by Innovative were hard to beat. Since working with them, their customer service has been top notch.Piers/Beams – Lance and Kyle were the BEST. That was one intense job to dig up the basement and install piers/beams. They were knowledgeable, helpful, conscientious of the house, and personable to work with. They deserve 10 stars.Estimates – Thank you to Chris and Travis for the competitive estimates. Chris was always willing to work with me to provide the most competitive quote with good options. Travis has met all the challenges with insulation and foam. Thank you for all the follow up as well.Foam – Front Steps – Gunnar and Logan stabilized my front steps with foam. They were very considerate of walking through every step, the risks, and the warnings with completing this job. I appreciated their customer centric approach.Foam – Basement – Mark and Andrew were great as well with the basement foam insulation. They too walked me through the expectations of the job and it was a very smooth process.I'm sure I have missed some people who are part of the process. I can tell this Company works as a team which is appreciated. I'm grateful to you all.I feel my house is in great shape to last the next 80+ years. Mostly, I believe I can count on Innovative to be there if there are any concerns in the future.

The installers Isaiah McKeown and Chris Popouich, called us the day before and the day of the installation to let us know their arrival time. We walked through the project site and reviewed the contract. They answered all questions we had. As they installed the product, they were very careful and protect our property. After the completion of the project, they cleaned up and walked us through the project site. Both Isaiah and Chris were very professional and helpful. I would recommend this company and this crew to anyone. Thanks again for the outstanding job.
