The owner of this home in Forest Lake, MN was concerned about water damage and mold growth in their home caused by water leaking through cracks in the basement walls. Looking for a solution, the homeowner reached out to DBS.

A DBS Design Specialist went to the home to conduct a free no-obligation estimate. After a thorough inspection, the Design Specialist generated a quote for our WaterGuard® and PowerBrace™ Systems to solve the water and structural issues.

A DBS Foreman led the installation of this project with help from a crew. Together they installed the WaterGuard® drains by jackhammering trenches around the interior perimeter of the basement and fixing the drains into them. Then they covered the holes in cement for a smooth finish. Then they began the installation of the PowerBrace™ System. They secured each PowerBrace™ i-beam with steel brackets to the rim joists of the home, and bolted the bottom to the basement floor, permanently stabilizing the wall.

Now that the basement has been permanently stabilized and waterproofed, the homeowner can relax peacefully and safely in their home.

Job Stories From Forest Lake, MN
Foundation Wall Cracking and Bowing in Forest Lake, MN

A homeowner in Forest Lake, MN was noticing that the block foundation wall of their home was beginning to crack. Cracks in the foundation wall are a telltale sign of foundation settlement, soil failure, and so on. In this particular case, the cracks were still fairly minor, so it was only right to have it checked out before things worsened. A Design Specialist from DBS visited the home and provided a free, no-obligation estimate and thorough inspection of the area. It was determined that the foundation wall would need to have both the PowerBrace™ Wall Bracing System and GeoLock® Wall Anchor System installed to maximize the support and stabilization of the wall. These two systems are ideal components to combatting foundation wall cracking and bowing, and can even work to potentially straighten out badly bowed walls over time. For more information on foundation failure and the products we use, please visit here.

The photos attached show some of the early cracking taking place. The cracks ran through the middle section or the wall horizontally, as well as in the corner area.
