Brandon Wollin from DBS

Brandon joined the DBS team in June of 2020 as a Carpenter on our Basement Repair team. With 15 years of experience as a foreman at a painting company, he is a great fit to assist with projects both on the DBS campus and in customer homes. 

His responsibilities include assisting our production teams with carpentry work like drywall repair, painting, trim, and other finishes to complete projects at customer homes. 

What excites him most about a career at DBS is learning new skill sets and expanding on existing ones, while getting to know the DBS family.

In his spare time, you will find Brandon spending time outdoors hiking, camping, biking, and agate hunting. He also enjoys playing guitar and writing, as well as cooking.

    WaterGuard® and SingleSafe™ Sump Pump Solutions Help Solve Wet Basement Issue in Keewatin, MN Home

    The owner of this home in Keewatin, MN was becoming frustrated after tireless attempts at trying to maintain a dry basement. During the rainy season, water would seep through cracks in the basement wall, causing damage to the paint and on the basement floor. In hopes of finding a proper waterproofing solution, the homeowner called DBS.

    Design Specialist James Miller went to the property to conduct a free no-obligation estimate for the homeowner. After a thorough inspection, James determined a solution that would help resolve the issue. James explained DBS's WaterGuard® drainage system solution to the owner and advised them that it would help direct water into a SingleSafe™ sump pump that would expel water up and away from the foundation. 

    A DBS Foreman led the installation of this project. With the help of a crew, they installed the SingleSafe™ sump pump and WaterGuard® system. The WaterGuard® system is installed by jackhammering trenches along the perimeter of the basement and placing the drains into the trenches. The drains are positioned so that they empty into the SingleSafe™ sump pump and are then covered with cement for a seamless finish. The WaterGuard® drains will help collect water running down basement walls.

    Now that the basement has been properly waterproofed, the owner can now relax more comfortably in their home knowing that their basement is dry and promoting a healthier and safer environment.

    The homeowner at this property in Grand Rapids, MN was having trouble with the presence of water in their basement. They were looking into finishing their basement but knew they needed to address the water issue first. Looking for a solution, they contacted DBS.

    Design Specialist Rich Johnsen visited the property to conduct a free no-obligation estimate for the homeowners. Upon further inspection, he made note of signs of water damage throughout the basement and concluded that the home would benefit from DBS's WaterGuard® draining system and TripleSafe™ sump pump.

    Carpenter Brandon Wollin led the installation of this project and with the help of a crew, they installed a WaterGuard® drain system to help direct water flow to the TripleSafe™ sump pump. The TripleSafe™ sump pump would allow for more water to be expelled from the basement, helping to maintain a dry environment.

    The homeowners of this property can relax comfortably in their homes now that they know their basement will stay drier and promote healthy clean air.

    Foundation and Water Issues Fixed in Superior, WI Home

    The main floor of this 1935 home in Superior, WI was uneven. The wooden support beams in the basement were failing. This was causing the settling of the exterior foundation, and allowing water to seep into the basement. The homeowners were tired of cleaning up water from the leaking foundation and worried about further damage to the home. After seeing our advertisements on local tv, they contacted us to schedule a free, no-obligation estimate with one of our foundation repair specialists.

    DBS Design Specialist Henrik Makitalo went to the home and provided an inspection and estimate for the work. After visiting the home, Henrik recommended installed a waterproofing and foundation repair system to fully protect the home. 

    DBS Foreman Nick Burley and crew installed 5 SmartJack® Support beams to instantly lift the sagging main level. The SmartJack® System comes with a guaranteed warranty of 25 years against manufacturing defects. These support beams will stabilize the home and prevent any further movement. 

     

    To complete the job and help insulate the basement, Installed Brandon Wollin installed our SilverGlo™ crawl space insulation to better protect the basement from cold air.

    The homeowners can now rest easy knowing their home is healthy, safe, and comfortable!
