Our customer Cassandra from Excelsior, MN had a Complete Basement System installed in January 2014 and had her first maintenance on her basement waterproofing and sump pump system completed in 2018.  

Maintenance is important to prevent a floor in heavy rains.  Sump pumps are electro-mechanical devices that sit in dirty water all the time, and our service is important to make sure it’s ready when big rains come.

Our customer from 2013 in Excelsior was experiencing water issues during the spring thaw and heavy rains.  After searching online for a company to help, they contacted Complete Basement Systems.

The homeowners existing sump pump was not keeping up with the capacity to effectively pump all the water out.  Our installation crew upgraded the existing basket to the elite TripleSafe Sump Pump System.  This "King" of Sump Pumps contains 3 pumping systems.  Pump 1 is operating a 1/3 hp motor, pump 2 is a 1/2 hp and pump 3 is a bettery operated back-up system.  This pumping system can pump out over 12000 or over 24000 gallons.

Job Stories From Excelsior, MN
Cracked Foundation Wall in Excelsior, MN

Our customer in Excelsior, MN hired Complete Basement Systems to install a waterproofing system in 2008.  Our customer Max contacted us here in 2017 to look at a foundation wall that has had a crack along the wall for quite some time. 

Our system design specialist, Ryan Brenner, met with the homeowners to address their main concern with the foundation wall that was cracked.

Ryan designed a foundation system that included the PoweBrace Wall System, using zinc coated steel I-beams.  The PowerBrace's unique, patented design allows the system to be tightened over time, potentially reversing wall failure without any invasive drilling or digging on the property.

We recently bought our current house, and your company's name and contact are on the sump area. The listed "next service due" date is Feb 2015, and I fear the pump isn't working at all. Before moving in, there was a radon system put into the sump basin and the lid was sealed, so I haven't opened it to test the pump.

Very old house (c. 1870) has significant basement foundation issues, mostly manifesting in water flowing in during periods of heavy rain. Luckily, the problem seems to be only with one wall, or even a smallish (~10 foot) section of the wall.

I have a 950sf heated unattached garage with a 6' high concrete block wall in the back and sides reducing to grade level at the entrance (Built in 2006+-). Every year at thaw/rainy times my walls leak terribly at the base, and even up 12" or so in a couple spots.

I have a working sump pump that is taking water from the sump, running through a hose to our utility room, and then draining into the floor drain. It is working, but it is a manual process and I have to set it up and turn the pump on and off. I would like to set up a more automated system that pumps the water through piping directly outside instead of through our basement. I am also interested in the backup battery option. As a note, we had a radon mitigation system installed in our home before we moved in in January. I didn't notice it at the time, but they completely sealed the sump. I had to cut it open to get the pump in to drain the water as it was filling up with all the rain. I would like to know if there is a way to install an automatic sump pump with battery back up while continuing to mitigate the radon. Thanks in advance.

We have been experiencing an issue with water seeping into our family room. Generally this has been occurring after a fairly significant rain fall or rapid thawing of snow. We have ripped up the carpet and have identified a few spots where the water appears to be seeping in from and would like assistance identifying a solution to this.
