    Sarona, WI Cabin Owners Encapsulate Dirt Crawl Space

    Cabin owners in Sarona, WI wanted to spend the winter living in their cabin. The cabin had some insulation in the crawl space, but it was consistently moist, and was also hosting a family of mice. Knowing they would need a permanent solution to keep their cabin comfortable, they called DBS for a free, no-obligation estimate on our crawl space encapsulation service.

    DBS Service Manager Jacob Nustad-Peluso visited the cabin and gave a thorough estimate for the crawl space project. We recommended a full encapsulation which includes a vapor barrier, drainage matting, and insulation. 

    DBS Foreman Zach Jorenby is an expert at installing both waterproofing and foundation repair products. He lead a three-person crew to complete this cabin crawl space system. Our team placed drainage matting directly on the dirt crawl space ground, with a CleanSpace® vapor barrier on top. Those two products work together to prevent water from freely collecting and evaporating into the crawl space. 

    These customers are now ready to spend a winter in the Wisconsin woods!

    Homeowners in Minneapolis, MN wanted to encapsulate their crawlspace to improve comfort in the wintertime. They are preparing to sell the home and want to fix the energy issues and provide a healthy, safe, and comfortable home for a prospective owner in the future. Their cold, drafty floors were a result of an under-insulated crawlspace. Looking for a permanent solution, they reached out to DBS to schedule a free, no-obligation estimate.

    Design Specialist Henry Jungbauer is a Design Specialist for our Dr. Energy Saver® service. He visited the home to provide a thorough inspection and solution for the home. He designed a plan that included removing the old insulation and installing our full encapsulation system; first drainage matting, next crawlspace insulation, and finally, a CleanSpace® vapor barrier.

    Foreman Zach Jorenby led the install of this crawl space encapsulation project. DBS Insulation Foreman Nick Woods II completed the spray foam portion of the crawl space.

    This homeowner in Maple Grove, MN was experiencing sagging floors above the garage. The Floors needed to be lifted back into place, and they trusted DBS with the job. 

    A DBS Design Specialist assisted the homeowner in a free, no-obligation estimate of the home's needs. After a careful inspection, it was decided that installing a SmartJack® System would be the best solution for this homeowner's problems. 

    A foreman led a team in the installation of this project. Together, the team installed a SmartJack® Support System in the garage of the home that lifted the floor above. This replaced the existing, unstable support beam. These support systems evenly distribute the weight of the structure to create stability for the home. They are adjustable as well, so they are able to level the floor above and minimize sagging.

    Basement Waterproofing in Saint Paul, MN to Stop Leaking and Musty Smells

    This partially-finished basement in Saint Paul, MN has issues with water intrusion. After heavy rains, water would make its way into the basement, causing a huge mess. The owners wanted reliable space for friends and family to stay while visiting, so they reached out to DBS for a permanent solution. 

    Basement Repair Production Manager Jason Brummer is an expert in basement waterproofing and visited the home to provide a free, no-obligation estimate. After thoroughly inspecting the leaky basement, Jason designed a custom plan for a basement waterproofing system including our WaterGuard® french drain system and a new sump pump.

    DBS Foreman Zach Jorenby and his crew installed our basement waterproofing products. First, they dug a trench around the perimeter of the basement and carried out the concrete. From there, they installed our WaterGuard® drainage system and surrounded it with gravel to encourage proper drainage. Once the drain system install was complete, they connected it to a TripleSafe™ sump pump and covered the drain with new concrete. 

    This family now has a proven system for keeping water out of the basement. They can now have guests stay with them knowing that basement flooding is not an issue.

    Saint Paul, MN Home on Verge of Foundation Failure Fixed with DBS

    This family home in Saint Paul, MN was built in the 1920s. It had some major issues in the crawl space that the homeowner wanted to address before matters worsened. After meeting us at a home show in Woodbury, MN, they decided to move forward with DBS completing the crawl space repair work. 

    DBS Production Manager Jason Brummer was the Design Specialist for this project. Because the home was showing issues with its cement and stone foundation, as well as the sinking of the floors of the main level, Jason came up with a custom plan including two different foundation repair products. 

    First, to combat the sinking floors, Jason recommended our SmartJack® system. Equipped with a nationally-backed transferable warranty, this system is meant to permanently stabilize crawl space floors using supplemental steel beams and vertical telescoping SmartJack® beams. Foreman Zach Jorenby and his crew installed the SmartJack® system.

    To combat the movement of the foundation walls, Nick Burley and his crew installed a GeoLockWall Anchor System. This foundation repair product anchors the foundation wall to earth plates in the stable soil around the home's exterior. Connected by long steel rods, this system pulls the vertical foundation walls towards the exterior of the home, back to a level position.

    Bowing Walls and Water Leaks in Augusta, WI Home Repaired by DBS

    A 1930s home in Augusta, WI had a bowing and cracked foundation wall. The walls were allowing water to enter the space, leaving behind a mess!  The homeowner called to set-up a free, no-obligation inspection and estimate for the work. 

    DBS Design Specialist Jason Brummer visited the home to inspect the source of the foundation wall and basement water issues. He determined that both a waterproofing system and wall repair system would be installed to provide a permanent solution to both issues. 

    DBS Foreman Zach Jorenby and his crew installed both systems beginning with the basement waterproofing system. In order to protect the entire basement, our basement repair team installed 115 feet of interior drain tile with a CleanSpace® vapor barrier on the walls. DBS uses the WaterGuard® drainage system, designed to capture water seepage through walls and leaks along the wall and floor joint. Water enters the system via inlet holes and flows through the drainage pipe to a new SingleSafe sump pump. 

    After the successful install of the waterproofing system, our team installed four GeoLock™ Wall Plates and Earth Anchors to the failing foundation wall. This system uses heavy-duty anchors and connects them to plates on the wall interior wall. Connected with long, galvanized rods, these anchors are tightened to straighten the wall over time and provide maximum support. From there, they also installed Carbon Armor Wall Defense straps to hold the wall in place, preventing it from further movement. 

    The homeowner was happy with the work done and looks forward to using a water-free basement going forward.

Water enters the system via inlet holes in the drain and it is carried to the basement sump pump. Once the WaterGuard® is in place, our team covers the drain with concrete to completely conceal the system.
