About Innovative Basement Systems in Fargo, ND

News and Events

The temperature is warming up, the snow is melting, and it’s finally daylight past 5pm. Spring - for now - is here. Most of us are happy to put the dark, frigid days of winter behind us, but stowing away your heavy coat in the closet probably isn’t the thing to do right now. Weather this time of year is unpredictable, and you may just need to pull that parka back out.

If you live in a home with a basement, chances are you’ve looked at it and dreamed of transforming that cold and dim space into a warm and comfortable oasis -- or at least into a space with more function than a dingy, water-prone basement can provide.

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

Are you thinking about finishing your basement? Most homeowners who are usually have a lot of questions -- and we don’t blame them. All of us at Total Basement Finishing by Innovative know from experience that finishing a basement is a big deal. When your time, money, and energy are at stake, you’ll want to know as much as you can before a crew ever sets foot in your home. To help you along your way, we decided to answer the 5 biggest basement finishing questions we receive from homeowners before you need to ask them:

Wednesday, February 19th, 2014

We know from experience that finishing a basement is a big job. That’s because we work in basements across Minnesota and North Dakota every day. We’ve seen -- and participated in -- every part of the process, from moving everything out to putting up walls to moving everything back in. But anything to do with maintaining and updating your home is always easier said than done.

Wednesday, February 5th, 2014

If you’re anything like us, one of your biggest pet peeves is clutter in your house. But sometimes it’s impossible to avoid. After the holidays, clutter is especially hard to maintain. Many of us are still trying to get control of Christmas decorations and gift wrapping supplies - not to mention all the new items we’ve been gifted - well into January. If you have children, the clutter is even worse. Even if you’ve just lived in your home for a short period of time, you’ve probably accumulated a lot more stuff than you realize.

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

It’s about a week into the New Year and most of us are still going strong on working towards the goals we set for the year to come. But there’s still a long way to go. The good news is that there are still 12 months to achieve success. The not-so-good news? There are still 12 months to fall off the wagon.

Wednesday, January 8th, 2014

Like we discussed here a while back, installing drywall in your basement is risky business. Basement flooding is too common an occurrence in Minnesota and North Dakota to take any chances. Water starts leaking in after snow melts, all of that drywall in your basement will be ruined. Leaving wet drywall up is not only unattractive - surely not the look you were going for when you finished your basement - it also fosters the spread of mold.

Friday, December 27th, 2013

If you’re like most homeowners your basement is probably not a place where you spend too much time. You might use the basement to stow away holiday decorations, old toys, family mementos, and other things you can’t bear to get rid of, where they sit forgotten for the majority of the time. But are they sitting in an unprotected area, vulnerable to the conditions of your basement?

Wednesday, December 11th, 2013

With all the busyness of the holiday season, inviting friends and family to your home shouldn’t be something that adds to your stress. But for many homeowners, it does. Where will dinner guests sit? Will there be enough room? Where will overnight guests sleep? With so many sleeping and seating arrangements to figure out -- not to mention buying gifts and preparing meals -- it’s no wonder holiday parties often devolve into chaos.

Wednesday, November 27th, 2013

Lots of homeowners, after living in the same space for several years, realize that things are getting crowded. Storage, unused furniture, and more begin to pile up, but most homeowners don’t want to get rid of their belongings just because space is getting tight. Chances are, you’ve felt that way too. So what can you do?

Monday, November 11th, 2013

Are you a homeowner who banishes thoughts of your basement to the back of your mind? We don’t blame you. As Minnesota and North Dakota’s top basement finishing experts, we’ve seen scary basements across the two states. But there’s one thing we know that might give you some hope about your basement: it can be fixed.

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

Total Basement Finishing by Innovative has been in the basement finishing business for over a decade, so we’ve seen plenty of creative do-it-yourself solutions to common basement problems - including successful DIY finishing projects. But for every DIY project that goes off without a hitch, there are ten more failures.

Wednesday, October 16th, 2013

With school back in session and October right around the corner, the mild weather Minnesota and North Dakota have experienced lately are on their way out - soon. You may love some parts of winter, but it’s easy to forget how hard it can be until you’re in the middle of it: the days are shorter, it’s too cold to be outside for long, ice and snow cover everything. After the holiday excitement is over, we long for sunshine, a sandy beach, and anything that gets us away from the homes we’ve been cooped up in for months. But what if there was another way to enjoy your home even when you’re sick of it?

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

Deciding that you want to finish your basement is a big first step - so big that lots of homeowners put off taking the next step for years, if they ever get around to it. They continue wasting their basement’s potential, year after year, until they figure it’s too late to make any progress.

Wednesday, September 18th, 2013

Back to school is a busy time for many families - it’s the time to stock up on school supplies, shop for clothes, meet teachers, and figure out new schedules. None of this leaves much time to be at home, but it provides an opportunity to use your empty house to your advantage. What better time to make your dream home renovation a reality than when the kids are out of the house, busy with school and activities?

Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013

Having a basement can be a big help, especially to growing families or other people who have a need for more space. But an even bigger help is a finished basement. Imagine the possibilities of a spare room, a home office, or a playroom – or all three! But one thing a lot of homeowners struggle with is choosing materials that will provide a barrier against the moisture all too common in basements.

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

If you’re ready to cover up those ugly stains on your basement walls, Total Basement Finishing by Innovative has the answer for you. With our durable EverLast wall panels, we’ll make it so you never have to look at your ugly, stained basement walls again.

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013

Bare concrete floors covered in dirt and dust. Ceilings with exposed pipes and electrical work. Walls with uncovered insulation. The beginnings of a mold problem. Years of accumulated storage. These problems are all too common for Minnesota and North Dakota homeowners – but they don’t have to be. A lot of homeowners with these problems can’t imagine digging out from their storage to start a basement finishing project with a blank slate. We’re here to tell you that you can.

Wednesday, April 17th, 2013

Most people would rather have a finished basement than an unfinished basement, yet most people leave theirs cold, damp, and unfinished. Why?

Friday, March 29th, 2013

While it’s a great idea to make your basement more comfortable – and your house more energy-efficient – by insulating your basement, you want to choose the best insulation possible. Here are some of the things you should be aware of before you choose to install fiberglass insulation in your basement.
