Job Stories From Blue Earth County, MN
Buying a Home with a Wet Basement in Mankato, MN?

Robert S of Mankato was looking to buy a home in Mankato that has had trouble with water in the past.  He wanted to be able to make use of this space by finishing it and wanted to make sure and protect that investment with a warrantied waterproofing system.  After seeing Complete Basement Systems around town, he gave the experts a call for an inspection.  

Our representative Lewis Uhrich visited with Robert at the property, took measurements, outlined a sketch to design a complete waterproofing system along each exterior wall using WaterGuard and updated an old sump pump system to a patented SuperSump pump system. He also addressed the walls with a vapor barrier solution using CleanSpace Wall System to prevent wall leaks, mold and moisture away from the eventually finished wall.  Lewis expressed the importance of a dehumidification system in the basement to reduce odors and control the humidity using a CompleteAire dehumidification system.

Robert scheduled the project shortly after closing.  Complete Basement Systems installation crew completed the project in 3 days installing a full perimeter WaterGuard, CleanSpaceWall and SuperSump pump system.  

Robert has been very happy with the experience using Complete Basement Systems and can rest assured getting ready to finish his basement that it will be safe from ground water seeping this coming spring when all that snow melts.

Buying a Home with a Cracked Foundation in Lake Crystal, MN?

Steffl Services inquired to Complete Basement Systems about a property that they manage citing a severe foundation crack and wall movement in Lake Crystal, MN.  

Nick Barke, our certified system design specialist, met with Steffl Services and took measurements and a sketch.  It was determined that our PowerBrace Foundation System would be best for the situation at this particular home to support the wall and prevent further movement.

 In our experience, its hard to sell a home with foundation problems.  Nick was able to educate the property manager on the cause of why this happens to homes over time and just how an effective solution such as the powerbrace system can permanently solve this problem without having to replace a foundation.

At the appointment, Kevin and the specialist took a look at the basement.  Kevin showed him where the problem was happening and explained how much water would come in and when it happened.  Together they built an accomplish list to solve the problem with a permenant solution.

The system design specialist designed a WaterGuard perimeter system, a vapor barrier for the walls using CleanSpace Wall System and installed a new SuperSump Plus system.

Basement Water Problems, Vernon Center MN

Todd & Kari S of Vernon Center, MN contacted complete basement systems in 2005 to address some areas in their 1/2 finished basement that was getting water seeping through the walls in the corner of the home.  They haven't lived in the home very long but wanted to research what was happening and what could be done to prevent this from happening again. 

The first step was to schedule a consultation with our System Design Specialist that is trained and certified to diagnoise and troubleshoot a solution for prevention.  Our representative provided them with an estimate after showing them what caused their basement to leak and how our patented waterproofing solution will work to solve the problem, forever. 

Many of our customers need time to process the estimate and what the work will involve to get this done, and also financing a way to pay for the project.  We understand this is a call many people make only once and have to process the details.  Our job is to educate the homeowners on our solution to resolve the problem and guide them to the end result that they are envisioning. 

Bowing Walls Fixed For Amboy, MN Homeowner

Art S.  of Amboy, MN is a homeowner and had a foundation wall in his basement that had noticeable cracks in the foundation and also noticed the wall to have a shifted.  After stopping by our office to discuss the problem with his foundation, Complete Basement Systems scheduled him a FREE estimate.

We scheduled a Free estimate with Art to meet with him at the property to discuss a solution and provide a written estimate for the scope of work that needed to be done.  The cause of the foundation wall to buckle and crack is due to the the moisture and frost that interact with the soil around the home and as that soil expands it is causing inward force on the foundation which caused the cracking and bowing wall. 

Our system design specialist took care of setting Art up for an installation date to install our PowerBrace Wall System to support and stabilize the wall from further movement.
