    Water Intrusion in Saint Paul, MN Basement is Diminished Using Waterproofing Technology and Sump Pump

    This home in Saint Paul, MN was suffering from water intrusion that was causing damage to the walls and floors. Needing a professional solution, they trusted DBS to help.

    Design Specialist Jason Swanson visited the home to conduct a free, no-obligation estimate. After doing so, Jason provided the homeowners with a quote for our WaterGuard® Drain System and TripleSafe™ sump pump.

    A DBS Foreman led the installation of this project with help from a team. Drenches were created around the perimeter of the area and drain lines were placed within. These drains collect water from the floor joists and the walls before it has the chance to enter the living space of the home. The water then travels through the drains to the sump pump, where it is discharged from the home. 

    These homeowners can now relax knowing their home is healthy and safe from further water intrusion.

    Minneapolis, MN Family Finishes Basement for Art Workspace

    This typical Minneapolis, MN basement was partially finished. However, it was outdated and had issues with moisture. Wanting to transform their basement with moisture-resistant materials, they contacted DBS.

    DBS Design Specialist Jason Swanson visited the home and gave a free estimate for the basement finishing project. This included installing some waterproofing infrastructure to help eliminate water issues. Our team installed mold and moisture-resistant flooring, wall panels, and finishing trim. 

    After demolition of the existing basement wall panels and flooring, our team installed wiring, plumbing, lighting, and ductwork infrastructure. From there, our team installed our Total Basement Finishing™ system to transform this space from basement to beautiful!

    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!

    Basement Finishing Project Increases Comfort and Home Value in Plymouth, MN

    This Plymouth, MN homeowner wanted to capitalize on the square footage in the basement. Their dream was to have another living room, a home gym, and office space. Having worked with DBS in the past to correct a bowing wall and install a waterproofing system, they wanted to finish their basement with the DBS water-resistant system.

    DBS Design Specialist Jason Swanson visited the home for a free, no-obligation estimate and came up with a custom plan that would incorporate this homeowner's wishlist.  DBS Carpenter Donny Whiting lead the install on this basement finishing project. The team also installed EverLast™ wall panels - the insulated version lined the outside walls and uninsulated for the inner walls. These wall panels are hung via a metal framing system, making them incredibly durable and stronger than drywall.

    They installed our ultra-durable, scratch-resistant MillCreek™ flooring throughout the basement. This mahogany color is UV-resistant and provides a thermal break from the cold basement floor.

    This owner was happy with the work done and now has a healthy, safe, and comfortable basement to use for years to come.
