DBS Case Studies: Foundation Repair Helping Homeowner Sell Home in Chetek, Wisconsin

Monday, January 16th, 2017 by Blake Johnston


This homeowner was having a hard time selling their home. They knew that the unsightly cracks on the basement walls were signaling to potential buyers that the home was suffering from foundation damage. Many home buyers do not understand foundation issues and tend to avoid properties that have damaged foundations. Having a company like DBS Residential Solutions do a proper assessment of the situation and decided what solution is needed is a great way to instill confidence in buyers. This will make buyers much more attracted to the property and increases the potential to get top dollar for the home.  

The homeowner had our specialist Rich complete an assessment of the situation. With this assessment the severity of the problem became clear. There was one wall that was bowing and required the assistance of six of our patented PowerBraces to permanently stabilize the wall and prevent it from shifting further in the future. 


With the proposed solution of six PowerBraces that would be needed to support the wall the homeowner understood that this would be the most effective and permanent solution that matched his needs and agreed to hire DBS to complete the work. 


Our installation crew met the homeowner at his house in January 2016 and was able to complete the work on this home in just one day. In that one day, our crew installed the six PowerBraces necessary to permanently stabilize the foundation and provided the 'WOW' service experience that we aim to provide all of our customers. The foundation wall we worked on is now guaranteed to be structurally sound and provides peace of mind to the homeowner. Additionally, prospective buyers of the home will feel more comfortable when seeing the professionally installed products and understanding the warranty those products are backed by.
