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.
DBS received a call that a cabin in Isle, MN was having multiple residential problems. The floor around a fireplace was sagging, causing a crooked window as a result, also causing the cabin to have trouble with the roof dropping around the fireplace. The crawl space in the cabin also needed to be waterproofed, preventing further mold and odors. Our Design Specialist, Rich Johnsen, made a proposal to support the sagging side of the cabin with our SmartJack® supports system and floor joist system while using the CleanSpace liner® and Triple SafeSump System to keep the crawlspace warm and dry. The photos below show the wet crawlspace prior to DBS beginning production, then the crawl space post-production.
A homeowner in Sturgeon Lake, MN reached out to DBS regarding the crawl space of their home. The area was old and dirty, and also prone to moisture. This was concerning for the owner, as it can cause damage and raise health issues. They had a Design Specialist come out and provide a free, no-obligation estimate for the waterproofing service. It was determined that the crawl space would need to have CleanSpace® installed to act as a vapor barrier for the area. As you will see in the photo, the crew did a great job ensuring full encapsulation of the crawl space to prevent any further moisture issues.
A homeowner in Hackensack, MN reached out to DBS regarding the dirty crawl space area in their home. They were concerned with moisture and odors that were entering the home, and were seeking a solution. DBS was able to send out a crew to install the CleanSpace® system to cover the area. This lining is spread throughout the crawl space for moisture control. This installation was just one of several steps in the project, and will surely help with the condition of the crawl space and the overall home.
DBS received a call from a client in in Holyoke that needed their crawl space looked at for a foundation issue. We sent Design Specialist, Henrick Makitalo, to the home to see what the problem was. Henrik saw that the home needed our spray foam service in their crawl space around the walls of the home. This spray foam insulation in the crawl space, vents, and installation of a new crawl space door to correct the insulation and prevent cold air from coming up and into the house.
The before photo shows the crawl space before the poly foam insulation was added to the walls to keep the home warm, DBS also added a new crawl space door to keep the home warm.
