Chad and Drinor did a great job on my north basement wall. They waterproofed it by adding a interior drainage gutter, sump pump and sheeting. They also used beams that connect with rods to plates in the yard to support and straighten the cinder block wall. When finished they cleaned everything up and walked me through to explain everything they did. Thanks guys

I would highly recommend Innovative Basement Authority. They did an excellent job encapsulating a crawl space in my home. First, my estimate appointment with Chris was thorough and smooth. Chris answered all of my questions and explained everything his team would do during install. Then, Marcus, Logan and Goody did a wonderful job with install. They were on time and efficient, friendly and very respectful of my home. I would definitely work with them again!

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!

Arrived later than expected, but got to work immediately. Isaiah explained the process and asked if I had any questions. The two man crew were very professional and really seemed to take pride in their work. Everything was done to my complete satisfaction and I would highly recommend their work.

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. When all is said and done I am confident with the quality of their work and know we made the right choice going with Innovative.

Our crawl space project was just completed (stablizing/jacking floor system and encapsulating the crawl space for moisture control). When we requested an estimate, Jan was very responsive in getting this set up immediately. He worked through and explained the project well. The project was completed by Zach, Brandon, and Ethan. They were professional and answered our questions. They worked long days to get the project completed in a timely manner. They were very orderly and kept our place very clean and organized. Zach was very easy to get in touch with and kept us informed during the entire process. We are extremely pleased with the work and the customer service of this company.

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!

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.

Having a massive foundation repair is a very stressful experience. If you find yourself in this boat, go with IBA. We have a 77 year old house and we ended up with multiple unexpected problems and the team took care of everything that popped up with professionalism and honesty. We were supposed to have work from Mon-Thur. Due to the additional problems discovered, the team stayed out until Sunday to ensure everything was done right. Couldn’t be happier. Big thanks to TO, Adam, Cory, Collin, Brandon, Austin, Adam F, and anybody I may be forgetting. Thank you thank you thank you.

Nathan Brand was our basement inspector, and we were extremely satisfied with his level of expertise, his thorough inspection and analysis of our basement, and the amount of time that he spent with us educating us on the process. He told us straight up that he wasn’t going to leave for the day until we had all of our questions answered and we were completely satisfied that we had the information we needed in order to make a decision. Nathan was very relatable and personable, and it was obvious that he truly cares about helping people through this process.

Home Repair Specialists in Duluth-Superior

Northern Minnesota areas like Duluth, Superior, Hinckley, Grand Rapids, and Brainerd are in the heart of Minnesota’s Land of 10,000 Lakes. From cabins with humid and nasty crawl spaces to homes with bouncy and uneven floors, properties positioned around the hundreds of miles of shoreline have seen their fair share of issues. 

The soil in Duluth is primarily compromised of a Brimson stone fine sandy loam. Unfortunately, sandy soils dry out quickly, which can be problematic for your home’s foundation. Sandy soils also warm up quickly in spring and can lead to basement and crawl space water intrusion when snow accumulation is high.

If you’ve noticed signs of crawl space damage, you’re not alone. We at Innovative Basement Authority are here to help with your foundation repair, basement waterproofing, crawl space repair, and concrete lifting needs.
