Homeowners of this 1984 International Falls home knew the home had a bowing foundation when they bought it. Looking for a permanent home to this issue at the time of their move-in, they contacted DBS.

Design Specialist Henrik Makitalo visited the home, assessed the problem, and created a solution for the failing foundation walls. WaterGuard® and our TripleSafe™ Sump Pump were recommended to make sure the basement stays dry all year long. To permanently stabilize the walls our 9 PowerBrace™ I-beams were installed along the perimeter of the basement. Foreman Kevin Steffey and his crew successfully installed the products.

The homeowners now enjoy a safe, stable, and dry basement!

Job Stories From International Falls, MN
Sealing International Falls, MN Crawl Space to Improve Home's Energy

Homeowners in International, MN reached out to DBS concerned over issues with their cold and damp crawl space.

A Dr. Energy Saver® Design Specialist went to the home and provided a free, no-obligation estimate, looking at insulation and waterproofing solutions for the crawl space. After the inspection, it was determined that closed cell spray foam insulation would be applied to the crawl space rim joists. A CleanSpace® vapor barrier would be laid on the floor to eliminate threats from moisture and mildew.

A properly insulated and protected crawl space means overall better energy efficiency and air-quality for your home.
