Homeowners of a 1960's home in Kettle River, MN contacted DBS in need of a permanent solution for their garage foundation. As seen in the before photo, the foundation was cracking and shifting, causing issues for the concrete slab below it and the structural integrity of the entire building. 

After hearing about us on local radio, they called DBS for a free, no-obligation estimate with our Design Specialist Nathan Schroeder. He diagnosed the foundation and concrete issues in the garage and designed a custom solution for the homeowners.

Foreman Nick Burley and his crew installed 4 GeoLock™ Wall Plates and Earth Anchors to the failing foundation wall. This system uses heavy-duty anchors and connects them to plates on the wall interior wall. Connected with long, galvanized rods, these anchors are tightened to straighten the wall over time and provide maximum support. 

Our concrete repair crew applied a sealant to the concrete garage slab, as well as NexusPro™, a silicone product that expands to fill and seal cracks.

The customer was happy with the work done and now had a permanent solution they can count on for years to come.

Homeowners in Kettle River, MN were tired of water issues in the basement. After learning about DBS from a neighbor, they contacted us to schedule a free, no-obligation estimate.

DBS Design Specialist Rich Johnsen is an expert in basement waterproofing and visited the home to provide the inspection and estimate. After thoroughly inspecting the leaky basement, Rich designed a custom plan for a basement waterproofing system including a vapor barrier, powerful new sump pump, and drain tile. 

DBS Foreman Dustin Behning and his crew installed our basement waterproofing products. First, they dug a trench around the perimeter of the basement and carried out the concrete. From there, they installed our WaterGuard® drainage system and surrounded it with gravel to encourage proper drainage, and covered it with new concrete. Once the drain system install was complete, they connected it to a TripleSafe™ sump pump. To prevent moisture build-up via the basement walls, DBS installed CleanSpace® vapor barrier. This flexible poly material will collect water and moisture, and direct it into the basement drainage system below. 

This homeowner now has a proven system for to keep the basement dry for good.

Job Stories From Kettle River, MN
PowerBrace™ Wall Support System Installed to Support Kettle River, MN Basement

Owners of this 1950's home in Kettle River, MN started to notice some cracking and leaking in the north wall of their basement. In hopes of a permanent solution, they reached out to us after visiting the DBS booth at the Duluth Home Show.

DBS Design Specialist Henrik Makitalo visited the home for a free, no-obligation estimate for the foundation issues. It was determined that three PowerBrace™ I-beams would be installed to support the north wall of the basement. These PowerBrace™ beams are anchored to the floor and rim joists and can be tightened over time to restore the wall to its original position. DBS Foreman Antonio O'Neil and his crew performed the foundation support work.

The homeowner was happy with the work done and can now enjoy a supported basement.

CleanSpace® Upgraded Crawl Space in Kettle River, MN.

DBS received a call looking to upgrade the crawl space in their home to properly drain, insulate, and fix the overall environment of the home, as a poorly insulated or wet crawl space can create a long list of problems in other rooms. DBS worked with the clients to set up a proposal for their crawl space repair that met their needs.

We suggested our spray foam insulation to give the crawl space protection from drafts and cracks letting the air out. We also proposed installation of our CleanSpace® drainage matting and a SmartDrain to make sure that any water coming into the crawl space would be directed out, so our homeowners can maintain a dry crawl space and an overall happy home.
