Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Foundation Repair and Waterproofing for Cracked and Leaky Basement in Rice Lake, WI

Album Description

This home in Rice Lake, WI had issues with cracked foundation walls and leaking during rainy periods. Not wanting their basement to get any worse, they contacted DBS for a free, no-obligation estimate.

DBS Design Specialist Nathan Schroeder is an expert in diagnosing foundation issues. He visited the home and provided a thorough inspection of both the inside and outside of the home. He then designed a plan that would address the combination of water and structural issues. 

DBS Foreman Joe Harris and his production crew installed both the foundation repair and waterproofing systems. They began by installing the interior drain tile. 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 the basement sump pump. 

Finally, to stabilize the bowing walls, Joe and his crew installed 3 PowerBraces. These zinc-plated steel I-beams can be adjusted over time in hopes to restore the wall to its original position. 

These homeowners now have a healthy, safe, and comfortable home.
