A hotel in Aitkin, MN was experiencing stability issues with its block foundation walls, and DBS went out to provide some support. Our foreman and his crew were able to install a considerable amount of PowerBrace™ units around the area of the wall to maximize the strength of the foundation. These braces can also help to straighten out bowing walls over time, should they need it.

Job Stories From Aitkin, 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.

We have a lake cabin that needs foundation work or replacement. We have just started to look at our options of what would be the best option to fix it. There is a dirt crawl space with concrete pillars holding it up now.

Standing water in shallow crawlspace of 24'x28' concrete block cabin. House smells musty. We would install a French drain system, but need help with incapsulation.
Vicinity of Minnesota Ave South in Aitkin
Concrete blocks wall caved in. In motel basement and other 2 walls are need repair as well.
Vicinity of in Aitkin
Seasonal cabin with typical settling issues.
Vicinity of in Aitkin
I need the earth dug out from the sides of my concrete foundation - about 20 feet altogether - and the concrete block repaired where needed. I then need the ground around the wall to be graded so that water does not run toward the cabin. I don't think that you would need to dig down to expose the entire wall given that I don't really have water problems in the basement.
Vicinity of MN Ave S in Aitkin
100 year old house with a rock basement, it has always had "heaving" issues but north side of the house seems to be sinking. I would like to get an estimate on the repair cost.
