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
Proper Insulation for Addition to Aitkin, MN Lake Home

The owner of this lake home in Aitkin, MN reached out to DBS to insultate an addition they completed on the home.They knew that properly sealing the space would ensure its longevity and support the rest of the home as well.

Our Sales Manager Royce Bunn was the Design Specialist for the project. He visited the home to provide a free, no-obligation estimate for the insultation job a recommended installation of our Dr. Energy Saver® spray foam. It was determined that 5 inches of closed-cell spray foam insulation would be applied to the ceiling joists,

Our DBS production crew completely sealed the space, paying particular attention to sealing all visible cracks in between the building material. This will assist in holding in heated air, and prevent ice dam build-up.

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.

I contacted your company last summer and got a free estimate done. Due to financial reasons, I was not able to follow through with the project. I was hoping to open the case back up and possibly have someone come out and take another look at my foundation in order to get it fixed. I have one wall that is bowed and cracked, and the opposite wall is cracked and leaking a small amount of water in. The other two are minimally affected at this point, but there has been more water coming inside through the bowed wall this past summer so I would like to get something done as soon as I can in order to fix this problem as much as possible.

High water table at lake cabin so have a wet crawl space. Cabin to be lifted, insulated and encapsulated. A couple of wood floor joists need to be replaced as well as a threshold due to rot.

We have a seasonal cabin resting on concrete piers. We have noticed some cracks in the walls and the entry door sticks.

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.

Concrete blocks wall caved in. In motel basement and other 2 walls are need repair as well.

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.
