Encapsulation of Dirt Crawl Space in Beaver Bay, MN

Encapsulation of Dirt Crawl Space in Beaver Bay, MN Encapsulation of Dirt Crawl Space in Beaver Bay, MN

After meeting us at the Duluth Home Show, homeowners in Beaver Bay, MN reached out to DBS regarding the crawl space of their home. Crawl spaces with exposed earth are prone to fluctuating humidity, creating moisture and mold issues. This was concerning for the owner, as it can cause damage to the home and foundation as well as raise health issues. 

A DBS Design Specialist visited the home and provided a free, no-obligation estimate for the crawl space encapsulation service. It was determined that the crawl space would have CleanSpace® installed to act as a vapor barrier for the area. The DBS Foreman and crew laid the vapor barrier throughout the space to prevent the spread of moisture, and also added TerraBlock™ insulation to the space. Finally, a SaniDry™ dehumidifier will curb moisture levels due to temperature fluctuation in the space. 

The homeowners were happy with the work done and now a clean and dry crawl space.

Basement Receives Waterproofing Service in Two Harbors, MN

In Two Harbors, MN, a homeowner was experiencing difficultites with water in their basement. This is a common issue among households with little to no protection from leaking water. In need of a solution, they reached out to DBS to help out. After the issue was addressed, a Design Specialist went to inspect the area, and provide a free, no-obligation estimate for our waterproofing service. It was determined that the basement would have several waterproofing products installed for maximum efficiency and protection. First, WaterGuard® was installed around the perimeter of the basement to be a drainage system for seeping water. Water would then be extracted from the area by way of the new TripleSafe™ sump pump that was installed in the preexisitng sump hole. Lastly, CleanSPace® was put up to cover all the basement foundation walls to act as a barrier between the inner portion of the area, and unwanted external material. All in all, the project was a great success, and with help from these ideal products, the homeowner can now enjoy a more safe and dry basement environment!

Large Home Repair Project in Two Harbors, MN

A homeowner in Two Harbors, MN recently reached out to DBS regarding many different areas of their home in need of repairs. The foundation was in need of lifting, for it had settled in the ground due to poor stabilization. Aside from that, the crawlspace of the home would need to have some serious debris removed, in order for better structural support to be installed, along with a waterproofing system. Lastly, the garage structure would also need to be lifted for piers to be installed. This was a lot of ground to cover for the DBS team, but nevertheless, the crew was up for the task. Design Specialist Henrik Makitalo visited the home, and provided a free, no-obligation estimate for all of the services. All in all, it was determined that the home foundation would need to have 21 total piers installed. The reason being is that it will allow for maximum lift and support for the settling foundation, and can help to prevent future damages to the home. Along with the piers, there was a considerable amount of dirt within the crawl space area, which had to be removed in order to proceed. Afterwards, the crew would encapsulate the space with CleanSpace®, and install a SmartSump® pump for water protection. On the back end of the project, the crew would have to lift the garage structure for proper pier placement, which would be the last overall step in the entire job process. Overall, the large task is nothing new to the DBS team, who have pursued it with full confidence in their abilities.

Waterproofing and GeoLock® Installation in Silver Bay, MN

A homeowner in Silver Bay, MN was experiencing several issues with their basement that needed to be addressed. the home had a failing foundation that could end up causing further structural damage, and it was allowing water to enter the home and cause basement flooding. Basement flooding is a common result of a poor home foundation, so often times the services of waterproofing and foundation repair will be combined. The first step for the crew, in this case, was to properly excavate the outer area of the foundation in order to install the foundation product GeoLock®. The GeoLock® system is comprised of galvanized steel anchors that are embedded into the excavated area, then attached by a steel rod to a separate anchor pulling on the interior portion of the foundation wall. The GeoLock® system can be used to seize further bowing movements of a foundation wall, and can even work to pull it back to its original positioning. After the foundation repair, the crew would install exterior drainage from the basement to ensure no further flooding within the area. The overall results of the project turned out great, and the homeowner can now be more comfortable with an updated basement system.
