The owner of this home in Kettle River, MN noticed that the wall in their garage was bowing, looking for a solution they reached out to DBS.

A DBS Design Specialist went to the home to conduct a free no-obligation estimate for the homeowner. After a thorough inspection, they generated a quote for our Geo-Lock® Wall Anchor System for the homeowner.

Foreman Jason Foster led the installation of this project with assistance from a crew. Together they installed 4 Geo-Lock® Anchors along the wall to permanently stabilize it. The Geo-Lock® Anchors use the soil on the outside of a foundation to brace the wall as another plate sits outside the home beneath the ground to lock the one on the other side of the wall in place.

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.
