Job Stories From Aitkin County, MN
A Wet Crawlspace in Aitkin MN

Gregg P. had enough of his low, wet crawlspace. With it's typical dirt floor and vents all around, the crawlspace would get wet in the spring and summer. He called a few contractors to get a couple of proposals that he could compare. After reviewing them, he chose DBS Residential Solutions to encapsulate his crawlspace and solve is issue. 

The major parts of the crawlspace encapsulation included a perimeter draintile, TerraBlock Insulation, Dimple Drainage Matting, Cleanspace, and a Super Sump and Ice Guard. Each piece plays an important part in the Cadillac crawlspace system. The draintile moves any water straight into the SuperSump, which sends it outside through the IceGuard, which doesn't freeze in the winter! The TerraBlock insulation is laid down over the dirt, the first step in separating the cold damp earth from the living quarters. The dimple drainage matting is laid next to ensure that any water leaks is lead into the draintile, taking it out of the area. The Cleanspace is laid last, keeping everything hidden and clean beneath a beautiful white anti bacterial plastic.

Since DBS Residential Solutions has finished his crawlspace, Gregg has been able to enjoy an area that most homeowners don't. Should he choose, his crawlspace is ready to be used as storage! DBS was glad they were able to help out.

Leveling Shifting Building with Push Piers in Palisade MN

Many people in Minnesota and Wisconsin enjoy having a place where they can escape for the weekend and spend time with friends and family in the outdoors. Our customer who owned this building in Palisade MN used it as a Hunting Shack. The owner wanted this building to be around for a long time, but the foundation was beginning to cause problems inside the home. The home was sitting on concrete pillars that had shifted over time and were causing the home to move as well. Certain parts of the home were even inches away from falling off of the supports completely. The owner of this shack knew something needed to be done or he would be risking much worse damage to the property. He called DBS Residential Solutions after finding the permanent foundation solutions online and scheduled a free estimate for the shack. He met with our specialist who provided him with a wealth of information on why the problem was happening and which option would make the most sense to use in this situation. This time that solution turned out to be a combination of helical piers which are anchored deep in the earth to prevent movement, and steel beams set on top of the piers to provide strong even support throughout the whole home. As you look through these photos you can see the careful detail of the work our crews do to ensure a permanent and level foundation for the building.

Bowing Wall in Hinckley, MN

DBS received a call about leaning walls in Hinckley, MN that were concerning our clients. The home required that we stabilize walls along a side of the house from the inside and outside. Our design specialist found a quick solution to install PowerBrace™ Wall Bracing System for support with the bowing wall. Bowing walls generally refer to walls that show cracks, lean in a certain direction, or show a weak foundation or structure issue - in some cases, several of these issues show. It’s important to get a design specialist to look at the bowing wall because it can lead to larger foundation problems and unstable walls, foundations, or floors.

Looking at the pre-production photo below, it shows the way the wall is leaning and beginning to crack in the base of the home.
