A Hoyt Lakes, MN homeowner moved into this home in 2018. They noticed issues with the foundation's ability to keep out water - it was leaking from cracks in the foundation on three sides. After doing some research on our website, they decided to tackle their water troubles with DBS. 

Our Design Specialist Rich Johnsen visited the home and provided a free, no-obligation estimate for the homeowner's project. It was determined that both waterproofing and foundation support systems were needed to provide a permanent solution going forward.

DBS Foreman Taylor Allen and crew worked on the basement waterproofing job. The crew began by breaking out concrete to create a trench around the home's footing. Our WaterGuard® drain system was put into place and will effectively capture wall and floor seepage, directing it to a new TripleSafe sump pump. The crew finished the job by burying the discharge line in the lawn, direction water away from the home. 

DBS Foreman Nick Burley and his production crew then performed the foundation support work. They installed a PowerBrace Wall Bracing System, attaching steel I-beams to the concrete floor and the basement rim joists. This PowerBrace™ Wall Bracing System, is meant to support walls from further movement and can be tightened over time, in order to restore the walls to their original position. The PowerBrace™ beams are zinc-plated and backed with a 75-year warranty against movement.

This homeowner can now rest easy knowing their home is protected going forward.

Job Stories From Hoyt Lakes, MN
Wet Garage in Hoyt Lakes, MN

Homeowners in Hoyt Lakes, MN called DBS with a concern for the concrete in their garage. The cracking in the concrete had gradually gotten worse and throughout the winter, water had also become a problem in this area. The cracking had caused the water to pool and collect in the middle. DBS sent our design specialist, Henrick Makitalo to the home to create a solution for the problem. When Henrick looked into the area, he came up with a proposal quickly, he saw that the homeowners needed installation of our PolyLevel® service to bring the concrete back to its original place. We would lift and level the concrete, also putting PolyLevel® into the center of the garage to prevent pooling of water. Below is a photo of the concrete prior to production, if this looks like a problem in your house, call DBS for a free, no-obligation estimate!
