Basement finishing company in Cloquet

At DBS we can transform your basement into usable space. Whether you want another living room, a home theater, or something else entirely, our team can help make your vision a reality. Many building materials like drywall and plywood don't work well in the basement. In the damp environment of the basement these building materials are often vulnerable to mold and other issues. That's why we use specialized building materials that are inorganic, waterproof, and perfectly suited for the basement environment.

Concrete lifting and leveling with PolyLevel® in Cloquet

PolyLevel®® is a fast & efficient method to raise sinking concrete. This simple foam injection can stabilize your Cloquet concrete slab for years to come!

If you have a cracked sidewalk, damaged sidewalk, or an uneven patio or driveway, PolyLevel® from DBS is the quick, efficient, and cost-effective solution you need to successfully take care of this serious issue. At DBS our innovative process lifts and smooths out depressed and unbalanced concrete using an incredibly strong targeted foam injection. This process ensures that the troubled area becomes solidified so it forms a smooth and secure foundation that makes the surrounding concrete significantly more durable than by using traditional techniques like mudjacking.

Foundation solutions for every problem

In order for you to preserve your home's long-term well-being and value, it is absolutely critical to quickly identify, repair, and eliminate foundation issues. Just a crack in the floor or wall of your home can indicate a very expensive and serious issue, which is why it is all the more imperative to have your home evaluated right away by a foundation repair expert from DBS. Here are the key warning signs of foundation damage:

Job Stories From Cloquet, MN
Cloquet, MN Home Eliminates Ice Dams with Attic Insulation

This 1970's home in Cloquet, MN was becoming uncomfortable. The homeowners noticed temperature changes were becoming more evident in throughout the seasons and the home was more difficult to heat. They also had issues with ice dams and knew this was a symptom of inefficient heating so they reached out to DBS about our Dr. Energy Saver services. 

Our Dr. Energy Saver® Design Specialist Jacob Nustad-Peluso visited the home and provided a free, no-obligation estimate for the insulation work. Jacob discovered the fiberglass batting had broken down and was covered in mold, an indicatation of water condensation in the attic. Foreman Orrin Sundberg and his production crew first removed old fireglass batting and insulation. Next, they applied a layer of closed-cell spray foam to air seal the attic floor and once cured, they covered the floor with our Tru-Soft™ cellulose.

Additionally, our team wrapped the chiminey in rock wool to better seal the entire attic. These homeowners now have a more comfortable home year-round!

Cloquet, MN Home Has Attic Insulated to Eliminate Ice Dams

The owners of this home in Cloquet, MN were having issues with ice dams. They knew that it most likely had to do with failing insulation in the attic so they contacted DBS to learn more about our energy-saving insulation options.

Design Specialist Henry Jungbauer trained in our Dr. Energy Saver® services and visited the home to provide a free, no-obligation estimate for the insulation project. Henry recommended air sealing and installation of both foam and cellulose insulation.

DBS Foreman Orrin Sundberg and his production crew began by completely removing the existing fiberglass batt insulation and air sealing the roof deck using ZypFoam. Once that was complete, they wrapped the chimney with rock wool, installed Tru-Soft™ cellulose insulation, provided a solid radiant barrier. This will assist in holding in heated air, and prevent ice dam build-up. 

Our installation team also built and installed a scuttle cover for the attic access with our SilverGlo™ insulation, ensuring a tight seal and separation from the living space below and attic above.

A Cloquet, MN homeowner reached out to DBS after a referral from a friend. They were looking for support insulating their home's attic. They were experiencing uncomfortable conditions during peak summer temperatures, and wanted more protection from the cold during winter months.

Our Design Specialist in whole-home energy visited the home to provide a free, no-obligation estimate. They recommended installation of a few different types of our Dr. Energy Saver® insulation's.

Once that was complete, they installed SilverGlo™ insulation, thoroughly lining the attic space, as well as dense-packed the space between the drywall and roof deck. 

Our team also installed a scuttle hatch cover made of SilverGlo™ insulation to prevent warm air from escaping from the home through the attic.
