This home in Superior, WI was experiencing instability issues in the basement. Cracked and bowing walls were an object of concern for the homeowner, so they reached out to DBS for a solution.
Design Specialist Rich Johnsen visited the home and conducted a free, no-obligation estimate to find the perfect solution for the home. After a careful inspection, Rich provided a quote and recommended our PowerBrace™ Wall Bracing System.
Foreman Zachery Lackner led the installation of this project with help from a partner. Together the team installed 6 PowerBrace™ Systems to stabilize the wall. These i-beams are adjusted over time to reposition the wall back to its original state.
This homeowner can now relax knowing their home is supported and stable.
This homeowner in Duluth, MN was experiencing stairstep and horizontal cracks, as well as a shearing wall in their basement. The owner was worried the wall would cave in if it was not fixed soon, so they turned to DBS for help.
Design Specialist Henrik Makitalo assisted this owner in a free no-obligation estimate for their home's needs. After inspection, he recommended the installation of PowerBrace™ Wall Bracing System in order to stabilize their foundation as well as a WaterGuard® system to waterproof their basement.
Foreman Osia Williams led this team in the installation process. After excavating around the outside of the caving wall, the team installed 2 PowerBrace™ steel I-beams by securing steel brackets to the rim joists on the flooring. These PowerBrace™ beams have a 75-year warranty against movement and can be tightened over time to restore your wall back to its original position. To accompany this installation, the team also installed a WaterGuard® drain system to collect water through wall and floor seepage and avoid future leakage into the basement.
This home is now stable and dry, allowing the owner to live comfortably without the worry of leaks or cracks intruding in their home.
