The homeowner of this Deerwood, MN home was concerned about the stability of their foundation. There were stair-step cracks running down the walls and it was slightly bowing inward. After calling DBS, a design specialist came out for a free, no-obligation estimate.

He inspected the home and then proposed a solution along with an estimate that same day. This quality solution included a helical anchor system to pull the wall back into place and stabilize it. Because there were also water issues found in the foundation, the solution included a waterproofing system.

With a signed proposal, a date was set to have the production crew come out to install the high-quality solution. The production crew then came out and professionally installed the waterproofing and helical anchor system. With this solution in place, the homeowner no longer had to worry about the unstable foundation.

A cabin owner in Deerwood, MN reached out to DBS for help protecting their cabin's basement. Foundation cracks were allowing cold air and water to seep into the basement, and this was taking its toll on the overall health of the home.

A DBS Design Specialist visited the home to provide a free, no-obligation estimate for the foundation and insulation support. Our production crew first excavated the wall and performed the foundation support using helical tiebacks. We then used a suite of our Dr. Energy Saver® insulation products to provide further weather proofing and air sealing support.

SentrySeal® is a rubber membrane that we used as the initial layer to seal the space. We then applied a layer of dimple matting to guide any moisture away from the foundation. We then installed a layer of our SilverGlo™ insulation. This rigid foam insulation is infused with graphite, making its R-value up to 25% to that of traditional foam insutlations. 

This home is now protected from further foundation trouble and sealed properly using Dr. Energy Saver® technology.

Job Stories From Deerwood, MN
Under Insulated home in Deerwood, MN

This Deerwood, MN home was under insulated. After doing some research, the homeowner called DBS to set up an appointment to have a design specialist come out for a FREE, no-obligation estimate. System Design Specialist, Steve Stern came out to the home and after a thorough inspection wrote up an estimate for the best possible solution.

This included removing the fiberglass and spray foam from the crawlspace and putting blow-in cellulose insulation. All of the vents around the home should be sealed properly to reduce as much air escape as possible. This solution would slow down the air movement in the home making it easier to keep a neutral temperature leading to lower energy bills.
