    Water and Scratch Resistant Flooring in Minneapolis, MN

    This family in South Minneapolis needed a solution to the flooring in their basement. They were looking for a durable, water and scratch resistant surface that would work for dance rehearsal for one of their children. After working with DBS to address some of the foundation issues a year prior, they called DBS to inquire about our basement finishing service.

    DBS Design Specialist Jason Swanson is an expert in basement finishing and helps homeowners with a smart, custom-design for their basement space. He visited the home and provided a free inspection and estimate for the work. The homeowners wanted the carpet gone and wood floor over the entire space. 

    Lead Carpenter Paul Villella and a team of our basement finishing crew began the project by removing the basement carpeting. Beneath the carpeting were some asbestos tiles. Safe removal of asbestos is a complicated process because disturbing the material is hazardous to workers and homeowners health. The other option is to leave the tiles undisturbed and safely cover them. The homeowners decided to go with this route and chose our MillCreek Flooring™. It is available in several natural colors, including the Natural Oak installed here.

    The homeowners were more than happy with the installation job and complimented our team on their worksmanship and communication!

    Finished Garage in Eagan, MN Adds Value and Ease for Year-Round Use

    A customer in Eagan, MN was looking to remodel the inside of their garage. Wanting a system that would be water and stain resistant, easy to clean, and durable, they contacted DBS for a free, no-obligation estimate for a garage finishing system. 

    DBS Design Specialist Jason Swanson is an expert in our Total Basement Finishing™ system. He visited the home, took thorough measurements, and developed a design with the homeowner. The garage had some damaged dry wall and concern with rot on the the wood studs beneath. Taking that into consideration, Jason included a MoldX2 Botanical™ treatment in his proposal. 

    DBS Carpenter Paul Villella and team installed a BrightWall® Wall Panel System in the garage space. These semi-rigid plastic panels are perfect for application over poured concrete or concrete block walls. Waterproof, stain resistant, and easy to clean, these wall panels outsmart traditional drywall. 

    The homeowner was happy with the work done and now has a finished space tough enough for garage activities.
