Before and After Pictures from Ely
Waterproofing an Ely, MN Basement

This basement in Ely Minnesota had become quite leaky and in need of a permanent solution. The cracks that had formed in the wall were allowing water to enter the basement and the homeowner knew it would not be adequate to paint on a waterproofing solution or just add gutters to their home. The installation crew at DBS applied a waterproof polyurethane matting called CleanSpace to the wall which was connected to a newly installed drain tile in the basement. This system allowed water passing through the wall to be collected into the drain tile and fed into a sump pump rather than allowing the leaks to collect as puddles of water in the basement. Not only does our CleanSpace matting help waterproof the basement, but this shiny white matting helps give a much more clean look to the basement walls which were previously dark and dirty.

This is certainly not a job you find everyday. A boathouse in Ely, MN experienced foundation structure damage during a series of storms, and the owner was worried about the condition it was in. They were able to reach DBS to help find a solution to this issue. After careful inspection and thought, it was determined that the boathouse would need a significant amount of piering done in order to stabilize it. The only problem was that a majority of the foundation needing work was sitting within the lake. Needing a solid surface to perrform the job on, our crew would wait until the cold season when the lake would freeze over. Once the ice was thick enough, the crew brought a mini excavator along it to help with the installation process. The can-do attitude of the crew resulted in a job well done, and the boathouse is now more stabilized than ever before!

The photos here show the basement wall before and after the CleanSpace® installation. The results were satisfactory, and the homeowner can now enjoy more clean and dry environment.
