WaterGuard® Drain System Installed in Crosslake, MN Home to Combat Water Intrusion

Before After
WaterGuard®  Drain System Installed in Crosslake, MN Home to Combat Water Intrusion WaterGuard®  Drain System Installed in Crosslake, MN Home to Combat Water Intrusion

This homeowner in Crosslake, MN hired DBS for their waterproofing issues. They were experiencing flooding all around the basement and especially near the well pipe.

Design Specialist Rich Johnsen provided this homeowner with a free, no-obligation estimate to help find the best solution for their home. After inspecting the areas, Rich told the homeowner that installing a WaterGuard® System would be the more efficient and effective solution for the home. 

Foreman Dustin Behning led a team in the installation of this waterproofing project. Together, the team removed the necessary flooring in order to install the drainage lines. These French drains collect water seepage from the floor joists and walls before it has the chance to enter the home. The water is then carried through the drains to a sump pump and discharged outside of the home. The drain is then covered for a flush appearance. 

This homeowner can now relax knowing their home is healthy and dry.

Floor Stabilization with SmartJack® System in Fort Ripley, MN

A lake home in Fort Ripley, MN was experiencing some structural issues with the main level floor, and it was concerning for the owner. The floor was beginning to sag, much like you would see with an old crawl space. This was a result of the lack of structural support the basement contained. In need of a solution, the owner reached out to DBS and had our Design Specialist James Miller visit and offer them a free, no-obligation estimate for the repairs. After a thorough inspection, it was determined that the basement area would need to have a set of SmartJack® XT units installed to properly support the structure. The SmartJack® System is comprised of galvanized steel jacks that latch on to a heavy-duty supplemental beam going across the ceiling joists, and act similarly to wood posts or other support beams. However, the SmartJack® System is inorganic and will not deteriorate over time, making it an ideal product for floor stabilization. The photo attached shows the near-end result of this particular project. The results turned out great, and the homeowner can now feel more comfortable with the support of their sagging floor.
