Photo Album: Augusta, WI Homeowner Calls DBS to Fix Water and Structural Issues

Album Description

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.
