The owner of this cabin in Palisade, MN wanted to stop worrying about pipes freezing underneath in the wintertime when they are not there. Looking for a solution, they reached out to DBS.

A DBS Designs Specialist went out to the cabin to conduct a free no-obligation estimate for the homeowner. After the inspection, they generated a free quote for the cabin owner for SilverGlo™ insulation panels.

A DBS Foreman led the installation of this project with help from a crew. Together they installed the SilverGlo™ panels on the vertical walls of the crawl space and air sealed the area with ZypFoam™. The panels are made of graphite-infused rigid foam insulation that will prevent frost from reaching the foundation footings.

Now that the crawl space has been properly stabilized, the cabin owner can have peace of mind without having to worry about their piped freezing in the winter.

The owners of this cabin in McGregor, MN wanted to repair their foundation before selling it to the new owners so that they would not need to worry about the foundation issues so they reached out to DBS.

A DBS Design Specialist went to the cabin to conduct a free no-obligation estimate for the owners. After a thorough inspection, they generated a quote for our helical cabin piering system to solve their foundation issues.

Foreman Tyler Nacey led the installation of this project with help from a crew. Together they installed 5 helical piers to provide permanent stabilization to the cabin. Each pier bears more than the weight of the structure when installed. Once they are driven into the ground, they will never experience more than the weight of the structure, ensuring that they will provide proper support.

Now that the cabin has been stabilized, the owners and new owners can relax more comfortably knowing that the issue has been resolved.
