Homeowners of this 1984 International Falls home knew the home had a bowing foundation when they bought it. Looking for a permanent home to this issue at the time of their move-in, they contacted DBS.

Design Specialist Henrik Makitalo visited the home, assessed the problem, and created a solution for the failing foundation walls. WaterGuard® and our TripleSafe™ Sump Pump were recommended to make sure the basement stays dry all year long. To permanently stabilize the walls our 9 PowerBrace™ I-beams were installed along the perimeter of the basement. Foreman Kevin Steffey and his crew successfully installed the products.

The homeowners now enjoy a safe, stable, and dry basement!

The owner of this home in International Falls, MN had issues with her crawl space and attic. In the crawl space, insulation had fallen from the ceilings, the vertical walls needed insulating and the issues caused the flooring to feel colder than normal in the winter. As for the attic, there was only one layer of batting insulation that had been compromised by moisture and pests. Looking for a solution, the owners reached out to DBS.

Design Specialist Henry Jungbauer went out to the property to conduct a free no-obligation estimate. Henry concluded that the home would be a good candidate for DBS insulation systems. New insulation in the attic and crawl space would solve the energy efficiency issue in their home.

Foreman Raeshawn Pelfrey led the installation of this project with help from his crew. The homeowners decided to address the crawl space issue first before following through with proper attic insulation. In the crawl space, the crew gutted the old insulation to start with a clean slate. Crawl Space Encapsulation Service by DBS involves installing 3-layers of insulation. First, a layer of drainage matting is installed over the ground of the crawl space to assist the movement of water underneath the layers of insulation. Next panels of durable foam insulation called TerraBlock™ are laid over the matting. Finally, the CleanSpace® vapor barrier is installed to seal and complete the encapsulation process. To properly insulate the walls, polyurethane spray foam was applied to thoroughly air-seal the crawl space.

Now that the crawl space has been properly insulated, the owners will notice how much warmer their flooring is in the winter and how much lower their energy bills are. They can finally relax comfortably without worry.
