A homeowner in Hawthorne, WI reached out to DBS regarding a waterproofing project for their basement and bathroom. The waterproofing service helps to keep unwanted leaking water from entering the basement in several different ways. After having a free, no-obligation estimate take place, it was concluded that the basement would need to have WaterGuard® installed around the perimeter of the basement, as well as a TripleSafe™ sump pump put in to help extract the water. The photos here show the bathroom area where the WaterGuard® was installed, and a portion of the wall will be replaced. The results turned out great, and now the homeowner can now enjoy a more dry and comfortable basement area.

Job Stories From Douglas County, WI
Cracked and Bowing Basement Walls in Superior, WI

A homeowner in Superior, WI had finally had enough of her cracked and bowing basement walls. She was tired of the water coming in and she knew that the foundation issues would just get worse with time. After doing an on-line search, she found DBS Residential Solutions, Inc and knew they could solve her problems. 

 After calling to schedule her free estimate, Royce B. came out to meet with her. He listened to all of her concerns and answered all of her questions. After continuing to work out the best plan for her wants and needs, they decided it would work best to have Kevin install exterior waterproofing at the same time as installing 14 PowerBrace systems to move the wall back to its previous position as well as stabilize it against further movement. They also installed a SuperSump inside of the basement to take care of any water leaks. 

The homeowner now enjoys her safer, drier and more comfortable basement in her home in Superior. WI.

Superior, WI crawlspace is stabilzed

The homeowner of this Superior, WI home called DBS when they noticed sagging in their main level floors. System Design Specialist, Rich Johnsen, made a visit to the home. Upon his inspection of their crawlspace, found that several of the support beams had fallen. Additionally, he found rusted and fallen support jacks, as well as rotting support logs. It was clear that this home needed some support! 

Rich gave a free, no-obligation estimate with solutions to fix the homes support problems. The homeowner decided to move forward and get the much needed crawlspace support. Foreman, Casey Healy and his crew set out to first pour concrete footings for eight of the SmartJacks. Once those cured, the crew began the installation of new support beams as well as the SmartJacks to support those beams. 

The homeowner was so pleased with the results and he was happy knowing his home was now properly supported.

Spring Concrete Repair in Superior, WI

DBS just completed one of our first concrete repair projects of the year at a property in Superior, WI. With the spring season starting to kick off, concrete repairs are a very high demand service for DBS to fix ravaged concrete slabs. This service comes with a few different products capable of ensuring a more safe and friendly slab. When concrete starts wear down and crack, it can also begin shifting to uneven positions, causing hazards for those who occupy the area. Since DBS is unable to provide this service during the winter months, early spring is a hot time for concrete repairs to take place, right before the warm summer months. One product that is commonly used in this service is PolyLevel®. What this is is a polymer foam injection that is embedded below the surface of the concrete that has sunk. Once injected, The foam quickly expands and lifts the concrete back to the desired position. It is a quick and efficient way to ensure a more even slab. Another common product for crack repairs is the NexusPro®. This is a sealant that is used to fill in large cracks running along the concrete that might cause further issues down the road. A photo of the NexusPro® can be seen attached here. The crew for this particular project did a great job caring for the concrete apron, and the results were successful.
