Before and After
Waterproofing and Wall Support for Failing Foundation in Superior, WI
A homeowner in Superior, WI contacted DBS for information on waterproofing their leaky basement. They had been living in the home for nearly 10 years and noticed the problem gradually worsening, due to cracking in the basement foundation walls.
DBS Design Specialist Henrik Makitalo provided a free, no-obligation estimate for the work. DBS Commerical Representative Casey Healy was the leading foreman on the job. He and his production team installed our WaterGuard® System along the perimeter of the basement, as well as CleanSpace® Wall Poly on the walls. The system directs all moisture to a new SuperSump™ sump pump. The crew connected this system to a new discharge line with IceGuard® to prevent freezing water in the winter months.
The crew also installed 5 PowerBrace™ steel I-beams to stop the movement of the bowing basement wall and restore their original position.
These homeowners were happy with the work done and now have a safe and dry basement to enjoy!

Our basement leaking solutions
Basement Floor Cracks
Water can also rise directly through the porous concrete of your floor slab, a problem that's exacerbated when there's a crack. When you have water coming through the floor, the first step is installing a perimeter drain system. We can also install a direct drainage channel, which will help direct any water that comes through the crack into the drain and your sump pump. Finally, we will backfill the crack with stone and cover it with fresh concrete to prevent future leaks.
Basement Wall Cracks
The soil around your foundation is filled with water, and even the smallest crack will allow this groundwater to seep into your basement. Much like with floor cracks, the first step to repairing a leaky wall crack is installing one of our drainage systems. We then use an innovative polyurethane sealant called FlexiSpan® to seal the crack. This flexible sealant will never dry or crack and can flex to the natural movement of your foundation wall, ensuring a completely waterproofed seal.
Basement Leaky Windows
A waterproof seal. Prevent future leaks with our basement window sealing system.
Window frames break down over time, creating separation and allowing water to seep past seals. Once again, the first step for repair window leaks is a drainage system that funnels the water to your sump pump. We will then create a small hole in the wall under the basement window with a plastic fitting that directs any water into the drainage system. This is then sealed with a polymer injection for a clean, waterproof finish.
Repair your leaking basement floor and wall cracks today!
Water can enter your home at any point where there is an opening in the foundation. This includes not only cracks in the basement walls and floors, but around pipes as well. Our floor crack and leaky window solutions provide lasting results that are compatible with your perimeter drainage system and will not crumble, flake off your walls, or fail due to the natural expansion and shrinking of the concrete.
