The attic of this home had only eight inches of insulation installed which was inadequate to maintain the heat that was created inside the home. On top of this, the attic hatch was not properly insulated and was allowing conditioned air from inside the home to enter the attic and escape the home. Our specialist informed this homeowner of the benefits of blow-in insulation at specific depths. The homeowner decided on the depth of blow-in insulation that they were comfortable with and our production crew set out to make their dream a reality. From the photos it looks like this area of the attic was filled with an average of around 20 inches of insulation. This insulation provides a much better barrier between the cold attic and the living space below. With the addition of rigid foam board insulation installed over the hatch this attic is much more insulated and air sealed from the home below.

Job Stories From Esko, MN
Basement Waterproofing in Esko, MN

When a homeowner in Esko, MN, contacted us, their frustration was palpable. Dealing with persistent basement water issues had become a relentless cycle of vacuuming and anxiety. Their simple wish: a consistently dry basement they could trust. Recognizing the urgency and impact of their situation, our team at DBS sprang into action.


The process began with our Customer Care team promptly scheduling a thorough home inspection to assess the concerns firsthand. Our System Design Specialist then meticulously examined the extent of the water ingress problem. Based on their detailed assessment, we tailored a solution specific to the homeowner's needs, demonstrating our profound expertise in waterproofing systems.


Our proposal was straightforward, highlighting our confidence in effective solutions. We recommended installing our durable WaterGuard® system, a dependable DoubleSafe™ Sump Pump, LawnScape™, and IceGuard®—all chosen for their ability to handle even Esko's harsh winters. Once approved by the homeowner, our production team, led by an experienced foreman and skilled installers, commenced the waterproofing project.


Their commitment to not only addressing but comprehensively resolving the issue was evident in their precise installation approach. Utilizing these advanced solutions involved meticulous digging, fitting, and installation—all executed with minimal disruption. Upon completion, the transformation was striking. Our products seamlessly integrated into the basement environment, effectively protecting it from future water intrusion.


For the homeowner, the result was precisely what they had hoped for—a consistently dry and reliable basement. Gone were the days of battling water issues, replaced instead by the peace of mind that comes with a consistently dry environment.

Concrete Repair in Esko

Nick and his crew were tasked with addressing a customer's concern about a lip between the garage apron and the floor, which required the customer to accelerate forcefully to enter the garage. Additionally, in winter, ice on the driveway necessitated the use of four-wheel drive. The customer expected the apron to be lifted to meet the garage floor smoothly and to tilt back to align with the driveway. Despite the challenge of a small apron being down by 2 inches at the garage, with a 3/4 inch lip where it met the driveway, Nick successfully completed the job. The customer valued good communication and honesty, which Nick provided, leading to a successful sale. The customer praised Nick and his crew for their punctuality, professionalism, quick work, excellent cleanup, and appreciated receiving pictures of the completed job.

Waterproofing Solution for Finished Basement in Esko, MN

These homeowners in Esko, MN wanted to find a solution for the water intrusion in their finished basement. They wanted a professional and permanent solution, so they reached out to DBS for help.

Design Specialist Henrik Makitalo assisted the owner with a free, no-obligation estimate. After a careful inspection of the space, Henrik recommended our WaterGuard® Drain System and our TripleSafe™ Sump Pump.

Foreman Glen Olcott led the installation of this project with a crew. The crew created trenches around the perimeter of the basement and installed the drain lines within. These drains collect the water and transport it to the sump pump. Then new concrete is installed on top to create a flush finish that can be easily covered. 

These homeowners can now relax knowing their home is safe, dry, and healthy!

Crawl Space Encapsulation and Support for Esko, MN Home

A homeowner in Esko, MN met DBS at the Duluth Home Show and expressed concerns over their crawl space of their home. The area was dirty, drafty, and unstable.

A DBS Design Specialist visited the home and provided a free, no-obligation estimate for the crawl space encapsulation service. It was determined that the crawl space would have two Smart Jack® support beams installed to support the sagging crawl space ceiling. Additionally, the DBS Foreman and production crew installed CleanSpace® to act as a vapor barrier, preventing any further moisture issues.

Leaky Basement Service in Esko, MN

A homeowner in Esko, MN called DBS regarding a leaky basement issue. Their home had been built in the 1960's, and the basement was starting to have water leaking over the last few years. Whenever it stormed, water would pour in the basement and it was becoming a real problem. DBS sent out a Design Specialist to provide a free, no-obligation estimate for the waterproofing service, and it was concluded that the basement would need WaterGuard® installed around the perimeter of the basement, as well as a TripleSafe™ Sump Pump with exterior discharge line. 

For the installation of the WaterGuard®, the concrete lining the edge of the basement perimeter would need to be torn up in order for the drainage system to be placed. This system drains any unwanted water that is built up beneath the concrete of the basement and channels it down to the TripleSafe™ Sump Pump. From there, the TripleSafe™ pumps out the water that is collected through an exterior discharge line to an appropriate location. The combination of these products installed for basement waterproofing can help ensure there will be no more leaking or flooding of the area, and your basement will become a safer and more comfortable environment!

A small amount of water comes into our basement near an electrical outlet whenever we have a heavy rain (like this past weekend and today 9/24 & 9/25). It impacts one room in our basement, a room we would like to finish in the future. It's the only room that has an egress window in our basement. We would like to get an estimate on the cost to fix. I attempted to attach a video that shows water dripping from the area above the outlet.

We purchased our home in 2019 and each spring we've had some moisture/water issues in one corner of our home. Last fall we tried to address the issue outside but we had the same issue this spring. It's not a large amount of water; more of a seeping issue in one bottom corner.
