Case Studies I've worked on:

Before and after photos from jobs I've worked on:
  • Waterproofing & Sump Pump Installation Rochester, MN
    Before
    Waterproofing & Sump Pump Installation Rochester, MN
    After

    Our repeat customer Barbara of Rochester, MN contacted Complete Basement Systems to waterproof a new home of hers.  Our installation team installed a WaterGuard drainage system to collect any ground water seepage coming into the basement and then works to the newly installed SuperSump pump system.  

  • Waterproofing and Foundation Wall Repair Installation Austin, MN
    Before
    Waterproofing and Foundation Wall Repair Installation Austin, MN
    After

    Austin, MN homeowner was experiencing water in their finished basement and noticed a bowing foundation wall.  The solution was to install an interior waterproofing system along the perimeter of the home, a vapor barrier on the walls to prevent moisture and mold and for the bowing foundation wall, steel I-beams were installed to support and stabilize from any further movement. 

  • Full Basement Protection with TripleSafe Sump Pump System in Montgomery, MN
    Before

    Our most reliable sump pump system, the TripleSafe provides our customer in Montgomery with three levels of protection for their basement and will leave them with peace of mind the next heavy rain or power outage that their basement will remain dry!

    The TripleSafe sump pump has a 1/3 hp motor that can discharge 2,200 gallons of water per hour, it also has a 1/2 hp motor that can pump an additional 3,900 gallons of water per hour.  Lastly the UltraSump Battery Backup System also installed can pump more than 11,500 gallons of water on a full charge.  Wow!  Yes that's a lot of water!

  • Basement Waterproofing & Basement Wall Repair in Blue Earth, MN
    Before
    Basement Waterproofing & Basement Wall Repair in Blue Earth, MN
    After

    This Blue Earth home had some moisture issues and the homeowners noticed that the foundation walls were buckling.  The homeowners had been doing research on options on how to fix the problem.  We were happy when they stopped by our building to talk about the problem and we provided them with a FREE estimate. 

    Our System Design Specialist Ryan Brenner, quickly came to evaluate the situation.  Together they concluded a perimeter draintile system, new sump pump system and foundation support was needed to permanently protect their home for the long haul.

    WaterGuard was installed along the perimeter of the foundation to keep ground water from seeping through the floor and work with a new SuperSump Pump System to discharge water out of the basement.  PowerBrace zinc coated beams were installed on the block foundation walls to prevent further wall buckling.  

  • Egress Window Installed in Maple Grove, MN
    Before
    Egress Window Installed in Maple Grove, MN
    After

    Our customer in Maple Grove had a metal egress window well and wanted to get an estimate to replace it with a better quality egress window.  

    Our installation team installed a RockWell Egress Window with a cover which the customers really liked to avoid the debris that got into their old window well previously without a cover.
