A 1930s home in Augusta, WI had a bowing and cracked foundation wall. The walls were allowing water to enter the space, leaving behind a mess!  The homeowner called to set-up a free, no-obligation inspection and estimate for the work. 

DBS Design Specialist Jason Brummer visited the home to inspect the source of the foundation wall and basement water issues. He determined that both a waterproofing system and wall repair system would be installed to provide a permanent solution to both issues. 

DBS Foreman Zach Jorenby and his crew installed both systems beginning with the basement waterproofing system. In order to protect the entire basement, our basement repair team installed 115 feet of interior drain tile with a CleanSpace® vapor barrier on the walls. DBS uses the WaterGuard® drainage system, designed to capture water seepage through walls and leaks along the wall and floor joint. Water enters the system via inlet holes and flows through the drainage pipe to a new SingleSafe sump pump. 

After the successful install of the waterproofing system, our team installed four GeoLock™ Wall Plates and Earth Anchors to the failing foundation wall. This system uses heavy-duty anchors and connects them to plates on the wall interior wall. Connected with long, galvanized rods, these anchors are tightened to straighten the wall over time and provide maximum support. From there, they also installed Carbon Armor Wall Defense straps to hold the wall in place, preventing it from further movement. 

The homeowner was happy with the work done and looks forward to using a water-free basement going forward.

Job Stories From Augusta, WI
Waterproofing Near Augusta, WI

DBS specializes in basement waterproofing solutions. The owner of this home in Augusta, WI reached out to us with concerns about a wet basement. One of our Design Specialists went out to the home to conduct a free no-obligation estimate for the homeowner. After taking several measurements and photos of the issues, our Design Specialist drew up a proposal for the homeowner on the spot. The proposal recommended installing our WaterGuard® french drain system around the interior perimeter of the basement to combat water infiltrating the area. The WaterGuard® would help to divert water seeping up through the footings of the home into their sump pump so that it can be pumped up and away from the basement. If your basement looks similar to this one, it is time to give us a call as sitting water in basements creates the perfect condition for mold to grow! Reach out to us for a free estimate today.
