Homeowners in Iron River, WI had issues with water seeping up through their concrete slab in the basement. As evidenced in the before photo, this basement has an issue with hydrostatic pressure - a phenomenon in which high pressure from ground water causes water to seep through solid concrete. Looking for a permanent solution for the water issue, they contacted DBS after hearing our ad on local radio.

DBS Design Specialist Rich Johnsen provided a free, no-obligation estimate for the waterproofing system. A DBS Foreman and crew installed our WaterGuard® System along the perimeter of the basement, that will direct all moisture to a new TripleSafe™ Sump Pump. This pump system has a battery backup that provides several hours of additional protection against water damage if your primary pump fails for any reason, such as during a power outage.

DBS Foreman Zach Royer and his production team installed all of our basement repair products to give this basement solid protection for years to come.

These homeowners in Iron River, MN reached out to DBS for help keeping their leaky basement dry. When we arrived the basement had water damage, musty odors, and moisture in the air. 

DBS Design Specialist, Rich Johnsen went to the home and provided a free, no-obligation estimate for the work. After inspecting the home and water damage Rich recommended installing our WaterGuard® subfloor french drainage system paired with a TripleSafe™ sump pump. This system will never need to be emptied by the homeowner and is installed with a nationally-backed warranty. WaterGuard® sits flush with the floor and can be completely hidden with tile, carpet, or wood flooring. 

This home was repaired by DBS Foreman Joe Harris and his production crew. This home is now healthy, safe, and comfortable!

The owner of this structure noticed cracking in the walls of the foundation along with water leaking through the walls. They have recently been thinking about reselling the property, and in hopes of finding a solution to increase the resale value of her property, they contacted DBS solutions.

Design Specialist Henrik Makitalo went out to the property to conduct a free no-obligation estimate for the owner. After completing a thorough inspection, Henrik suggested that this property would greatly benefit from DBS's PowerBrace™ Wall Bracing System.

Foreman Osia Williams completed this project along with his team, and they successfully installed 2 PowerBrace™ I-beams that will correct bowing and prevent further cracking over time. DBS consulted with the owner upon completion of the first project to come back a second time in order to install waterproofing materials.

The owner of this property can now think clearly about potentially reselling the property now that they are assured the foundation is sound, sturdy, and stabilized.

Job Stories From Iron River, WI
Attic in Iron River, WI Newly Insulated

The owner of this lake home in Iron River, MN reached out to DBS to insultate an addition they completed on the home.They knew that properly sealing the space would ensure its longevity and support the rest of the home as well.

Our Sales Manager Royce Bunn was the Design Specialist for the project. He visited the home to provide a free, no-obligation estimate for the insultation job and recommended installation of our Dr. Energy Saver® SilverGlo™ rigid foam insulation.

Our DBS production crew first completely removed the existing insualtion. They then sealed the space, paying particular attention to sealing all visible cracks in between the building material. This will assist in holding in heated air, and prevent ice dam build-up. Once that was complete, they installed SilverGlo™ insulation, thoughly lining the attic space.

Insulation needs in Iron River, WI

The owner of this cabin was concerned about the heating in his home. The cabin had a crawl space which frequently let cold air through due to lack of insulation. After doing some research, this homeowner reached out to DBS to find the best possible solution. Following a friendly phone call with the office staff, an appointment was made to have a System Design Specialist make a trip out to the home for a free no obligation estimate. After a thorough inspection, the specialist was able to explain to the homeowner why so much heat was being lost and the best possible decision. Spray foaming the floor of the cabin would bring the R-value of the floor system up while creating a more airtight home.The specialist also noticed the current foundation could use some permanent supports. One great option would be the installation of Smart Jacks and supplemental beams. This quality solution would ensure the homeowners a warm and desirable place to spend their time.

Foundation Stabilization in Iron River,WI

The owner of this house and guest cabin was concerned about the crawl space below the home and the condition of the guest cabin. The homeowner did a bit of research and then reached out to DBS to find the best possible solution. After a brief friendly phone call with the office staff, an appointment was made to have a System Design Specialist come out to the home for a free no obligation estimate. The specialist performed a thorough inspection and was able to explain to the homeowner the best possible solution. To support the floor joist system, the installation of Smart Jacks was recommended. Installing CleanSpace® high-performance moisture barrier, a drainage mat, along with a Smartdrain would ensure that the water issues would no longer occur. To help with any insulation issues, Terra Foam and Spray foam would be a great quality solution. The installation of a SaniDry CX high performance and air purification system under the guest cabin would aid the waterproofing system. This great combination would be a quality solution for the owner. With the installations, the homeowner would no longer have to worry about the quality of the buildings and would be able to enjoy a safe and warm place.
