Lift & Raise Uneven Surfaces in Cohasset, MN.

DBS received a call from a homeowner that the services surrounding their home were sunken and needed to be raised. 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. By using our PolyLevel®, the sunken slabs would be lifted to the previously leveled concrete, also making sure the home is raised and solid at that level. We’ve included some photos of the settlement sinking around the home, showing the concrete slightly lower than the area of 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.
