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
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!
