This home in Mercer, WI was first built in 1907. After owning this property since the 1990's, they've always noticed significant inssues with temperature and humidity levels i nthe home. After recently seeing mice in the home's crawl space, they homeowner reached out to us about our Dr. Energy Saver® service for crawl space encapsulation.
Design Specialist Henry Jungbauer visited the home to provide a free, no-obligation estimate. DBS Foreman Orrin Sundberg and his prodution crew place a drainage layer and vapor barrier in the crawl space. This will prevent moisture as well as pests from entering the home via the crawl space.
Keeping your crawl space dry can also significantly reduce long-term damage to the wooden building material supporting the structure. From there, they applied closed-cell spray foam insulation to the rim joists where the crawl space was releasing cold air into the main level of the home.
The owner was happy with the work done, and how it resulted in a great improvement of this home's overall health.
A homeowner in Eau Claire, WI was experiencing an issue with their basement area. The basement had water leaks and it was prone to damage as a result. A Design Specialist from DBS was able to visit the home and provide a free, no-obligation estimate for the waterproofing service. It was concluded that our waterproofing crew would install a TripleSafe™ below the stairs in a closed-off space to help rid the basement of any flooding water. Aside from that, a WaterGuard® system was also installed to act as a drainage point.
This is a small portion of an energy efficiency home improvement project where we replaced basement windows with energy efficient Everlast windows & sunhouse covers, a Bilco door, structural improvements, and spray foam along the rim joists. Our customers are often aware of the importance of having energy efficient doors and windows, but may often overlook the benefits of insulating the rim joist of their home. With spray foam insulation we provide a well-needed coating of insulation that has the added benefit of air sealing this section of the home.
