Job Stories From Carlton County, MN
Foundation Wall Unstable in Wrenshall, MN

This homeowner was concerned about some shifting in the foundation walls. After reaching out to DBS and a brief phone call with the office staff, an appointment was made to have a System Design Specialist come out for a free no-obligation estimate. The specialist inspected the home and explained to the homeowner the foundation walls had shifted over time. He additionally noted some water issues found during the inspection. For the shifting foundation walls, the installation of power braces and joint reinforcements would bring the wall to the correct placement. The best quality solution to the water issues would be waterproofing, a super pump, and sentry seal systems that would ensure a warm and dry basement. These solutions combined would make certain the homeowners would enjoy a safe and comfortable home!

CleanSpace® Upgraded Crawl Space in Kettle River, MN.

DBS received a call looking to upgrade the crawl space in their home to properly drain, insulate, and fix the overall environment of the home, as a poorly insulated or wet crawl space can create a long list of problems in other rooms. DBS worked with the clients to set up a proposal for their crawl space repair that met their needs.

We suggested our spray foam insulation to give the crawl space protection from drafts and cracks letting the air out. We also proposed installation of our CleanSpace® drainage matting and a SmartDrain to make sure that any water coming into the crawl space would be directed out, so our homeowners can maintain a dry crawl space and an overall happy home.

Leaky Basement Service in Esko, MN

A homeowner in Esko, MN called DBS regarding a leaky basement issue. Their home had been built in the 1960's, and the basement was starting to have water leaking over the last few years. Whenever it stormed, water would pour in the basement and it was becoming a real problem. DBS sent out a Design Specialist to provide a free, no-obligation estimate for the waterproofing service, and it was concluded that the basement would need WaterGuard® installed around the perimeter of the basement, as well as a TripleSafe™ Sump Pump with exterior discharge line. 

For the installation of the WaterGuard®, the concrete lining the edge of the basement perimeter would need to be torn up in order for the drainage system to be placed. This system drains any unwanted water that is built up beneath the concrete of the basement and channels it down to the TripleSafe™ Sump Pump. From there, the TripleSafe™ pumps out the water that is collected through an exterior discharge line to an appropriate location. The combination of these products installed for basement waterproofing can help ensure there will be no more leaking or flooding of the area, and your basement will become a safer and more comfortable environment!
