Stable Foundation Created at Home in Hayward, Wisconsin

Stable Foundation Created at Home in Hayward, Wisconsin

This home was being held up by concrete blocks on top of concrete blocks and shims were used in areas where more support was needed. When adding shims to foundation supports the only guarantee is that you'll need to add more shims when the foundation begins to sag again. This is painstaking and obviously not a permanent solution.

To provide our customer with a permanent solution in this scenario we used steel piers set deep into the earth on opposite sides of the home and welded a steel beam on top of them. The beam sitting on the firmly placed piers yields a permanently stable foundation.

This is a small portion of an energy efficiency home improvement project where we replaced basement windows with energy efficient Everlast windows & sunhouse covers, a Bilco door, structural improvements, and spray foam along the rim joists. Our customers are often aware of the importance of having energy efficient doors and windows, but may often overlook the benefits of insulating the rim joist of their home. With spray foam insulation we provide a well-needed coating of insulation that has the added benefit of air sealing this section of the home.

DBS went to a home to find a solution for their foundation problems. We sent our Design Specialist, Kevin Steffey, to the site to see what the best method for repair was. He suggested the home use piering to fix the foundation. This works by driving steel pipes into the previous failing foundations in that building. We’ve included a before photo of the home with failing foundation and a photo during the production of the piering foundation method being installed.

Foundation and Crawl Space Support for Cabin in Hayward, WI

A cabin owner in Hayward, WI noticed some foundation settlement, allowing for water to reach the cabin's crawl space. They reached out to DBS in hopes of a permanent solution for this family property.

DBS Sales Manager Royce Bunn visited the cabin for a free, no-obligation estimate. It was determined that the long-lasting foundation support solution was needed, as well as our waterproofing system. DBS Foreman Zach Royer and his crew installed PowerBrace™ support beams in the crawl space as well as SilverGLo™ insulation and CleanSpace® vapor barrier to waterproof and insulate the space.

The customer was happy with the work done and can now enjoy a supported and energy-efficient crawl space beneath their cabin.

Recently moved into a new to us, very old home. The crawl space encapsulation has failed and there is some standing water (dirt/sand floor). Also - there are two support beams that are rotting.

Good afternoon, Hayward, WI is a little farther than Stone Lake or Spooner but you have great reviews so I thought I would ask. I am looking to get an estimate on an older house I am wanting to purchase. The basement has slight bowing from negative drainage, it is not too bad but it most likely needs support and then the negative drainage fixed. I am looking to get the recommendation of support as well as the price and availability. Would you let me know if you'd be willing to travel?

We have a single car garage that has a floor foundation issue. The foundation has cracked and is sinking in opposing corners. Building is leaning. Garage and entry door still work but it won't get any better without some floor slab leveling and reinforcing.

I'm purchasing a cabin 20 min south of Hayward, Wi. During the inspection process my inspector discovered that water in the crawl space has resulted in mold.
