This homeowner in Hovland, MN was concerned about the energy efficiency in her home and the air quality. After a quick call to DBS, an appointment was set to have a specialist come out to the home for a free, no-obligation estimate. At the inspection, the specialist was able to explain to the homeowner the best possible solution. The crawl space beneath the home was giving off slight odors and growing some mold. To combat this problem, encapsulating the space would be the best option. This CleanSpace® solution would also make the home more energy efficient and create a barrier between the ground and the house. The homeowner chose to go forward with this work and once it was completed, she no longer had to worry about mold and odor coming from the crawlspace.

A homeowner in Hovland, MN reached out to DBS regarding the crawl space of their home. The area was old and dirty, and also prone to moisture. This was concerning for the owner, as it can cause damage and raise health issues.

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 need to have CleanSpace® installed to act as a vapor barrier for the area. Foreman Casey Healy and crew laid the vapor barrier throughout the space to prevent any further moisture issues.

This cabin in Hovland, MN had issues with sinking and settling. The owners had purchased this cabin with hopes of finishing the inside. Looking for a permanent solution to their uneven flooring, they called DBS for a free, no-obligation estimate for foundation repair. 

DBS Design Specialist Henrik Makitalo has diagnosed structural issues in hundreds of homes and cabins in Minnesota and Wisconsin. After giving a thorough inspection, he suggested our helical piering system for the perimeter of the cabin as a solution to foundation failure.

Foreman Trevor Ingle and his crew led this project, and together they drove 12 helical piers beneath the cabin. This solution allowed the perimeter of the cabin to level and also stabilized the structure to prevent further sinking into the ground. 

This cabin is now permanently stabilized and the owners will be able to complete the interior of their new retreat.
