The owner of this home in Effie, MN noticed bowing walls in their basement and was concerned about them caving in. The homeowner had just recently purchased the property last year and a stud broke through the drywall a few months later. Looking for a solution, the homeowner reached out to DBS.

Design Specialist, Henrik Makitalo led the installation of this project with help from a crew. Together they installed 21 GeoLock™ Wall Anchors to permanently stabilizer the walls in the basement. GeoLock™ anchors are installed by first excavating a small hole into the ground outside of the home-- the distance away from the foundation depends on the strength of the soil. Then holes are drilled into the walls from the interior to drill a steel rod out to the excavation site. A GeoLock™ wall anchor plate is installed over the rod in the trench and secured with a bolt, and the same is done on the basement wall side. The bolt is tightened in an effort to help straighten the wall and can be tightened again during dry seasons. 

Now that the wall has been permanently stabilized, the homeowner can relax comfortably in their new home without worrying that their basement walls are going to cave in.

Encapsulation for Musty Crawl Space in Effie, MN Home

This Effie, MN homeowner was concerned about the energy efficiency and air quality of their property. After a quick call to DBS, an appointment was set to have a specialist come out to the home for a free, no-obligation estimate, for a solution to the problem.

At the inspection, the specialist was able to explain to the homeowner the best possible solution. The crawl space beneath the home was giving off slight odors and growing some mold. To combat this problem, encapsulating the space would be the best option. This CleanSpace® solution would also make the home more energy-efficient and create a barrier between the ground and the house. The homeowner chose to go forward with this work and once it was completed, they no longer had to worry about mold and odor coming from the crawlspace.
