This Biwabik, MN customer had been experiencing water seeping into their basement for a couple of years. They heard about DBS from a friend and called us up to schedule an inspection. Upon inspection, Design Specialist  Rich Johnsen found the best quality solution to keep the moisture from ruining items stored in this customer's basement. He proposed we install our WaterGuard system with a new TripleSafe sump in combination with our CleanSpace wall poly. This waterproofing system would be sure to keep water from ruining items in the basement. The customer was extremely pleased with the results!

These Biwabik homeowners reached out to DBS after being referred by a contractor working on a different section of their house.


They had been having issues with mold and rotting wood in their basement and wanted a permanent solution to the problem. Design Specialist Rich Johnsen provided a free, no-obligation estimate for the work. A Foreman and their production team installed our WaterGuard® System along the perimeter of the basement flooring, CleanSpace® Wall Poly was installed on the walls and everything now flows to a TripleSafe™ Sump Pump to keep water out of the basement for good. 


This home now has a safe and dry basement to enjoy with a clean new look.

The owner of this 120-year-old home had been there for about 20 years and noticed that the floors in her home were sagging and felt cold. A friend referred the homeowner to DBS after they had posted on Facebook looking for help with their issue.

Design Specialist James Miller went to the home to conduct a free no-obligation estimate for the owner. After a thorough inspection, James educated the owner on our SmartJack® system that could permanently stabilize their home.

Foreman Raeshawn Pelfrey led the installation of this project with assistance from a crew. Together they installed the SmartJack® System underneath the home to properly support the flooring above.

Now that the home has been permanently stabilized, the homeowner can have peace of mind and not have to worry about their floors collapsing.

Job Stories From Biwabik, MN
Basement Leaks and Cracks in Biwabik

We had received a call from a homeowner in Biwabik, MN who was noticing leaks in their basement and cracks all over the place in their basement. The homeowner knew they had clay around their home and understood they would need a serious solution to the problems they faced rather than a temporary fix. 

We are never happy to hear about homeowners facing problems, but we do like knowing that we can definitely help homeowners get peace of mind and become more comfortable in their home when they're facing problems like this. We sent our experienced Basement Specialist Rich to assess the situation and propose a permanent solution. Rich identified issues with the foundation and where the water was entering the home. Before proposing a solution he also took into consideration what outcome the homeowner was looking for and what constraints the home and property might have on a solution. In the end, it was determined that PowerBraces for foundation support and a new drain tile with CleanSpace wall matting would be most appropriate for the situation. The PowerBraces provide ample support for the wall and many homeowners enjoy the fact that they can be installed without the need for an external dig-up around the outside of the home. Meanwhile the new drain tile with wall matting helps to direct incoming water into a sump pump and away from the home. With our unique system we are able to offer a TripleSafe Sump Pump which works well with our system to drive water away from the home with additional back up pumps in the case of excess incoming water or power outage. 

Our foremen make sure to stay in communication with the homeowner throughout the project to ensure everything is being completed in accordance with their wishes and expectations. In the end, we were able to provide this homeowner with peace of mind in the form of a waterproofed basement with structurally sound walls.
