Grant B. came out to our house and did a completely thorough job diagnosing our basement/foundation issues and proposing a solution. We were very pleased with his professionalism and quote, and even though we're not deciding to have the work done at this time because of expense, we would definitely recommend Grant to anyone looking to have major basement renovation done in the Bismarck or Sioux Falls area.

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.

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!

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.

We recently had Aaron, Ramon, and Hunter waterproof our basement. They were on time, worked hard, and completed the job in a timely fashion. They also stayed and addressed all of our questions and concerns without complaint. They did an all around great job on the project. Hopefully this system will take care of our seepage issues.

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.

Structural Repair Expertise in Grand Forks

Situated on the northwest border of North Dakota and Minnesota, cities like Grand Forks, Thief River Falls, Devils Lake, and Pembina where snowy and bitter cold winters are common can lead to spring flooding from snowmelt. 

Flooded basements and bowing foundation walls are common throughout the Red River Valley. Because of the harsh outdoor elements, Grand Forks homeowners are no stranger to leaking basement walls, foundation settlement, and nasty crawl spaces.  

Because of the generous amounts of snow Grand Forks can get during the winter months, flooding is always likely during spring. But the soil around your home can be working against you too. Homeowners in this area are generally dealing with Bearden silty clay loam, which has poor drainage properties. Add melting snow to the mix, and you’re in for excess and pooling water around your home.

Have you noticed high basement humidity, musty odors, leaking walls, or bowing walls? Many homeowners just like you have experienced those signs of water intrusion and foundation damage, and we at Innovative Basement Authority are here to help restore your home and bring back your peace of mind.
