There were multiple areas surrounding the home sinking, so DBS sent our Design Specialist, Jace Alli, to the home to create a solution. Jace’s proposal recommended DBS installs our PolyLevel® service around the perimeter of the home in seven different areas to support and maintain the home.

Basement Waterproofing and Crawl Space Encapsulation in Cohasset, MN

A homeowner in Cohasset, MN reached out to DBS regarding multiple services. The basement of the home had an issue with leaking water. Aside from that, the crawl space of the home was old, dirty, and wide open. This can lead to cold drafts and unwanted outside chemicals to enter the home. In need of a solution, the homeowner had a Design Specialist from DBS come to the property and provide a free, no-obligation estimate to provide the best possible fix. It was concluded that the basement would need to have WaterGuard® installed around the perimeter, and the crawl space was to be encapsulated with a CleanSpace® vapor barrier. WaterGuard® is a drainage system that is placed below the concrete floor of a basement, and catches and extracts unwanted water from leaking in to the area. CleanSpace® is a matting that encapsulates the entirety of the crawl space, and acts as a barrier between the rest of the home and what lies within the crawl space. The overall result of the large project was a big success, and the homeowner can now enjoy a more safe and comfortable living environment. 

Waterproofing using WaterGuard® to Address Leaking Basement in South Range, WI Basement

A South Range, WI homeowner, was experiencing issues spurred by water leaking into their basement. The homeowners noticed that their 1970's home began leaking water about 2 years ago, resulting in muddy floors and mold growth. This is a common issue among households with this issue and so they reached out to DBS in hopes of a solution. A Design Specialist went to inspect the area and provided a free, no-obligation estimate for our waterproofing service. It was determined that the basement would have WaterGuard® products installed for maximum efficiency and protection. First, Foreman Kevin Steffey and crew installed WaterGuard® around the perimeter wall of the basement and then connected a tie line to the basement's existing floor drain to ensure proper water drainage.

The customer was happy with the result and is looking forward to a safe and dry basement!

Basement Waterproofing System Installed in Goodland, MN

A homeowner in Goodland, MN had a basement that would regularly have water leaking in from the outside. When this occurs, it poses potential health concerns with mold growth, as well as a general disturbance to the occupants and structure of the home. In need of some assistance, the homeowner reached out to DBS and wanted to receive a free, no-obligation estimate to install a waterproofing system.

Our Design Specialist Rich Johnsen visited the home and provided a thorough inspection of the basement area and consulted on the water issue. Afterward, it was determined that the basement would need to have several products installed to fully combat the leaking water. Our crew went in and installed 140 feet of WaterGuard®. This is our patented drain tile system that is installed just below the surface level of the existing concrete around the perimeter of the basement. It is ideal to cover the entire perimeter of the basement to ensure full waterproofing benefits. The crew also installed a TripleSafe™ sump pump system to extract the unwanted water to a more desired location outside of the home. These two products work hand-in-hand, with the WaterGuard® capturing any groundwater trying to creep through the flooring of the basement, and then leading it into the sump pump, where it is run through an exterior discharge line outside. The results turned out great, and the homeowner can now feel more comfortable with a dry, safe and comfortable basement area.

The photo attached shows the area where the TripleSafe™ sump pump was installed, along with the WaterGuard® sitting below a fresh layer of concrete.
