Jerry has been working with DBS since November of 2018 as a Production Installer. Prior to joining us, he was a railroad worker for 20+ years and has always been a laborer. He is a quick learner that has always been eager to get his hands on different products and install them in an efficient manner. In his free time, Jerry enjoys dirt-track racing, going camping, and canoeing.
A cabin in Danbury, WI was experiencing some foundation settlement, and the owner reached out to DBS to try and find a solution to the problem. A Design Specialist was able to provide a thorough inspection of the cabin, and it was determined that the structure would need to have helical piers installed along the wall lining to provide extra support. These piers will be able to prevent any future settlement issues, and can even work to lift the cabin back to its original position. The results turned out great, and the cabin owner can now be more comfortable with stronger foundation support.
A homeowner in Saint Paul, MN was in need of added support for both their concrete garage and retaining wall of the home. After receiving a visit from a Design Specialist and getting a free, no-obligation estimate, it was determined that the walls would need to have GeoLock® wall anchors installed to help support and stabilize any movement of the walls, as shown in the photos. These anchors are an ideal product to install for certain garage and foundation walls, and the homeowner can now feel more comfortable with their new anchor system.
A homeowner in Minnetonka, MN was experiencing issues with their basement foundation wall. The concrete block wall was starting to bow, and the homeowner was unsure if this would be a problem down the road. After they reached out to DBS and received a free, no-obligation estimate, it was determined that wall would indeed need stabilization using several PowerBrace™ units. The PowerBrace™ Wall Bracing System is exceptional in adding support to foundation walls, and can even work to straighten them back to original form. Photos from the progression of the project can be viewed here.
In Marcell, MN a homeowner reached out to DBS looking to keep their home more comfortable all year round and minimize the costs of their utilities. DBS has specific installation crews and design specialists that are experts in utilizing and minimizing energy in the home. We’re proud to say we work with our customers to make their homes warm during the cold seasons in the freezing temperatures within our service area. In the photos below we’ve used spray foam insulation to make sure the homes had a strong, warm insulation layer, then we added a final layer of insulation on our Dr. Energy Saver side, DBS also had to work to patch the siding and reinstall siding on the roof of the home after this installation process to bring the home back to its original state.
