This Minneapolis, MN homeowner was looking to update and finish an old basement bathroom. They reached out to DBS and spoke with Receptionist, Kristin Kramer, who helped book an appointment with System Design Specialist, Henrik Makitalo. Henrik was able to give these homeowners a specific estimate to complete the basement bathroom and finish the basement ceiling. The homeowners were excited to get started on this project with DBS. Foreman Drew Sundberg and his crew set out to install the updated bathroom features and basement ceiling. For this project, DBS used the high-quality finishing products EverLast wall panels and Millcreek flooring. These products are perfect for basements, especially the Millcreek flooring, as it is mold and mildew resistant.
This home in Saint Louis Park was experiencing some water issues and the homeowner wanted them taken care of. She called DBS and System Design Specialist, Rich Johnsen made a trip out to the home for a FREE, no-obligation estimate.
He inspected the foundation and explained to the homeowner the best possible solution. He explained that installing a waterproofing system would solve her problems. Along with the water problems, came cracks in the foundation wall from the pressure build-up. Letting the water problems go would only let the problem get worse with time. With this installation in place, the homeowner would no longer have to worry about the foundation problems.
A couple called DBS with a basement that was finished in the 70’s, the homeowners were no longer satisfied with the wood burning fireplace and wood panelling. The couple was also having trouble with the sliding door beginning to rot away. DBS constructed a plan to finish the basement into a beautiful, modern style that would match the style of the rest of the home. We also noticed that the couple would benefit from our concrete repair service in their garage. Because the couple also signed up for our PolyLevel concrete lifting service, their garage is now a safe, even environment for their family, and DBS is currently working on their basement for an overall enjoyable space to spend time together!
A couple in Minnetonka, MN called DBS looking for work on their crawl space and looking for a waterproofing and humidity solution in their house. They said that they had started to notice signs of mold in their house and they had never been in their crawl space prior to DBS coming to the house. The couple was looking to move in the near future and they were worried about the value of their house with these problems. Home Comfort Specialist, Steve Stern went to look at the house. Upon arrival, he immediately suggested our SaniDry Sedona to help with the household water and humidify problem. The SaniDry Sedona is very popular with DBS, it is known as a the ultimate dehumidifier. The SaniDry Sedona can create dry air results within a day of installation. Regarding work in the crawl space, we used our CleanSpace Liner with Drainage Matting for any water problems in there, the liner works to provide moisture control. After using our products and systems, the crawl space was made waterproof and less humid within days. Our customers followed up giving DBS a 10/10 review, very satisfied with the changes in their home!
DBS looked into a crawl space project that was cold and wet, so the homeowner called for an upgrade. We recommended installation of our SuperSump® system to replace the previous sump pump to manage the water in the house, then we suggested using a drainage mat in the crawl space to make sure any water that gets inside, goes back outside. We wanted to make sure the crawl space was clean so we used a liner in place of the dirt on the floor, then installed some insulation to make sure we could keep the crawl space clean, too. We’ve included a photo of the filter from the house before and after, with the new filter on the right. Below you’ll also see a photo of the dirty sump basin, showing some of the household images in a crawl space that may need DBS to resolve.

If you’ve been noticing concrete cracking and becoming unlevel, DBS can help. We use our PolyLevel® service to repair the cracks in your concrete, while also making it even again. We’ve included photos of what concrete looks like prior to our production when it needs repair. Concrete problems often start because of soil movement, mainly the pressure from the hard concrete surface on the soft soil. We make sure to bring concrete back to its original placement to maintain a safe, solid environment around your home.
We received a call from homeowners in St. Louis Park that they had a wall that was cracked and bowing. They were concerned for the support in their home and wanted to stabilize the wall immediately. DBS went to the home to create a proposal for repairing the wall. Our Design Specialist, Rich Johnsen, suggested the best method of repair was to use the PowerBrace™ Wall Bracing System to make sure the wall was stabilized and safe for the homeowners. Here’s a photo of our PowerBrace™ Wall Bracing System showing how it connects deeply into the ceiling of the home for support and stabilization.
