Richfield Transformation

Richfield Transformation

Richfield Transformation Richfield Transformation

Homeowners in Richfield, Minnesota wanted the option of adding additional storage space in their basement, but needed an egress window to make that happen. They worked with System Design Specialist Ryan Brenner to design a space that they can transform into a bedroom when they are ready. Crew Leader Ben Heldt and his crew then worked to make this vision become a reality!

The Richfield MN resident asked for a free estimate for his basement water problems. His partially finished space had water coming in during heavy rains and snowmelt in the Spring. Without waterproofing, he was worried about future damage. Our Design Specialist Ronald went to assess the situation. It was determined that a complete waterproofing system was needed to prevent further water problems. We began with the WaterGuard drainage system, designed to effectively solve basement water issues without clogging. WaterGuard collects water at the basement perimeter and safely drains it away. Next, we installed the CleanSpace wall system to prevent water vapor from entering walls and direct wall leaks into the WaterGuard. Following that, we installed the SuperSump and UltraSump Sump System to ensure the basement stays dry even in heavy rains. To complete the project, we added a buried discharge line and IceGuard. If you have any questions about our products that keep your basement dry and safe, please give our office a call or fill out the request for a free estimate on our website!

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.

Our house is a 1920s bungalow that we moved into in April 2022. A handful of times after a big rain event or snow melt, there has been water bubbling up through the foundation of the original basement. We would like to make sure we are on top of this and that it doesn't get worse, if possible. Interested in potentially a sump pump or other solutions recommended.

Hi We're looking for a consultation and recommendation on the support posts in the basement. Thanks.
Project Location: Minneapolis, MN
We have a house from 1921 and would like to waterproof the basement. The floor is a thin (1 inch or so) concrete slab with cracks, and we are close to Cedar Lake so we will probably need a sump pump and a dehumidifier. Thank you, Anna
Project Location: Minneapolis, MN
I discovered rot on my sill plate and joists around my dryer vent- with moisture and frost still present in the area. The frost is mainly on the interior of the cinder block, but the sill plate is still wet. My bet is the moisture came from the dryer vent, which I just had cleaned and repaired after discovering the sill plate problem. I have three things (two related, one separate) I'd like your help with: 1. repair/replacement/remediation options for the sill plate and joists, if necessary/recommended. 2. confirmation of source of the air leak (?) and moisture, and path for repair. 3. (unrelated to the above) inspection and quote for encapsulating a crawlspace Let me know if this isn't your area of expertise, I'm not sure who to contact for help with this problem.

1906 construction, looking to insulate rim joists, but no sill plate and I have moisture concerns.

We purchased a home that had recently had the sewer relined. We did not know that there was an old clay storm drain system that had been draining into the sewer. We now have water coming up along the perimeter when it rains.
