A homeowner in Grand Rapids, MN reached out to DBS regarding their home's crawl space and various areas within the basement. The crawl space was the source of some damp water issues, creating a cold and uncomfortable environment. In need of a solution, a Design Specialist from DBS visited the home and provided a free, no-obligation estimate for the service. It was decided that our crew would fully encapsulate the area using CleanSpace® as well as install a TripleSafe™ sump pump to extract unwanted water. To finish it off, the crew added SilverGlo™ insulation panels on the crawl space walls to create a warmer environment. The results turned out great and can be seen in the photos attached.

Grand Rapids's concrete repair specialists

Have you noticed concrete slabs around your property have started to shift or sink? Cracked, uneven slabs are just as unattractive as they are dangerous. However, traditional concrete replacement can be expensive, which is why many property owners balk at repairing their concrete issues. The good news? DBS offers easy, cost-effective concrete lifting and leveling solutions! We use PolyLevel®, an expanding polyurethane foam, to quickly raise and stabilize uneven concrete. When you’re ready to make tripping hazards a thing of the past, give DBS a call!

Job Stories From Grand Rapids, MN
Cold Home in Grand Rapids, MN Restored with Attic Insulation

The owner of this home in Grand Rapids, MN reached out to DBS about improving their energy efficiency. They knew that their attic was in need of new insulation and they reached out to DBS for more information.

Our Design Specialist visited the home to provide a free, no-obligation estimate for the insultation job. We recommended a combination of closed-cell spray foam and our Dr. Energy Saver® SilverGlo™ rigid foam insulation.

Our DBS production crew first completely removed the existing insualtion. They then air sealed the space using ZypFoam, paying particular attention to sealing all visible cracks in between the building material. This will assist in holding in heated air, and prevent ice dam build-up. Once that was complete, they installed SilverGlo™ insulation, thoughly lining the attic space. This was followed by spray foam to completely seal the space from floor to ceiling.

My southwest window well fills with water from the bottom up when ever there are heavy rains. The water doesn't come in the basement, but I have to pump the water out of the well to keep it from getting up to the window. Are there any options to manage the water on the outside of the basement. I have drain tile in the yard, all the water from the gutters on the roof is ran out through the drain tile system. With the wetter conditions, it seems to be a ground water issue. Thanks, Terry
