Sump Pump Installation in Albert Lea, MN

Sump Pump Installation in Albert Lea, MN

Before After
Sump Pump Installation in Albert Lea, MN Sump Pump Installation in Albert Lea, MN

In July 2016 after a big rainstorm that hit the Albert Lea, MN area our customer Elroy & Shannon found themselves with a flooded basement.  A problem they never had before, but clearly had found out fast that this would not be the last time.  

When the installation team arrived to begin the installation, you can see just how much water was underneath their foundation after opening up the floor to install a sump pump and complete waterproofing system.  

"The crew were very good with the installment of the system, and explained all that was done."

Crawl Space Encapsulation & Insulation Throughout Albert Lea, MN

If you've been having problems with your crawl space, our services can help. Some symptoms of a crawl space problem include uneven floors, foul odors in the home, drywall cracks in the interior, and heightened allergies or asthma symptoms. Mold is also a common problem as it can easily grow in any crawl space and eventually start rotting it all together. Besides adding braces to crawl spaces we can also professionally insulate and encapsulate the area with clean space vapor barrier. Installing sump pumps and dehumidifiers where necessary prevent moisture problems that lead to water damage and mold growth. Our crawl space system comes with a 25 year warranty that you can count on.

Remodel of old school into 12 apartments. Lower level has 6000 Sq ft crawl space about 4' tall dirt floor concrete walls. Decent shape would like cost for sealing crawl space area. Prefer product with a certified flame infor so that it will not require sprinkler system added to crawl space.
