Zach, Jerry, Rich, and Dema (not sure on spelling) just finished installing replacement egress Windows and new window wells at our home in NW MN. They finished the job in one day, were courteous, and answered any questions we had. They explained how everything tied into our drain tile, and their attention to clean up and detail was awesome. This is the 2nd time we have used Innovative Basement for house projects and we would recommend to anyone looking for help with their basement or foundation. Thanks Zach and crew!!

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.

Jacob D and Lenard S provided great service. Professional and friendly. Made sure I knew what was going on and answered questions. Treated my home and my family with respect and didn't damage anything, which not all contractors seem concerned about. I have some additional basement work that will need to be complete and I will definitely be using Innovative again.

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.

Sinan was very professional during his visit with us while he described what it would cost and what the solution would be. He was very honest and genuine about what problems he saw and offered solutions for them (like extending gutters away from the house and explaining how water could be getting in.) It did not make us feel pressured at all to get it done and actually helped us understand the scope of the problem. Overall it was a great experience!

IBA fixed my driveway and sidewalk saving me many thousands in concrete demo and repairs. Andrew and Ben did awesome work, even fixing areas I didn’t know needed repair until they pointed it out. Prompt, respectful, and efficient. And backed it up with a warranty. HIGHLY recommended!

History

Recognizing a need in the industry, Innovative Basement Authority was started by the father-son team Ross and Kevin Johnson in 2005. Because of their commitment to quality work and excellent customer service, the firm quickly expanded to three offices in Fargo, ND and Minneapolis and Rush City, MN. 

Offering basement waterproofing, foundation, and crawl space repair, Innovative Basement Authority is proud to serve homeowners throughout North Dakota, Minnesota, and Eastern Montana. 

Groundworks acquired this strong brand in November 2019. Since the merge, Innovative Basement System has a new freedom. This, coupled with the best training and products, has allowed Innovative Basement Authority to thrive for its more than 100 employees.
