This home in Lutsen, MN needed the foundation stabilized. After calling DBS to help, a design specialist came out to do a thorough home inspection. The specialist inspected the foundation and explained the best possible solution to the homeowner. The specialist proposed installing push piers to permanently stabilize the foundation. After a signed proposal the production crew came out to professionally install the push piers. With this solution in place, the homeowner no longer has to worry about the unstable foundation.

This homeowner in Lutsen, MN reached out to DBS with a crawl space project. The owner had noticed mold and mildew on the underside of her flooring and became concerned with the exposed dirt in the crawlspace. 

Design Specialist Henry Jungbauer assisted this homeowner in a free no-obligation estimate. After inspection, it was decided that encapsulating the crawl space with SprayFoam insulation would be the most effective solution.

Foreman Nicholas Woods led this installation process, along with a partner. The crawl space had old, deteriorating insulation that was failing to help the home, so it was removed before the DBS installation. Using SprayFoam, the team encapsulated the area. SprayFoam insulation is very resistant to moisture and mold damage, making it the best option for this homes crawl space. 

Wit their new, dry, and warm crawlspace, this homeowner can now relax knowing their home is healthy.

These renters in this Lutsen, MN home were having problems with water intrusion. They had to continually patch, fix, and paint the walls. Finally, they said enough is enough and had DBS help them with this project.

Design Specialist, Zach Guilliams, assisted the residents with a free, no-obligation estimate for the home. After careful inspection, the Design Specialist recommended the installation of a WaterGuard® System.

Foreman Dustin Behning, along with a team, led the installation of this project. Together, the team installed the French drainage system in the floor. This drain collects water seepage from the walls and floor joists before it enters the home. It is then transported to a sump pump and discarded outside of the house. The drain is then covered with concrete, creating a flush look. 

These residents will no longer have to worry about painting and patching. Once the concrete is dry, the drain system will be on the job.
