Wall Stabilization Project in St. Louis Park, MN.

We received a call from homeowners in St. Louis Park that they had a wall that was cracked and bowing. They were concerned for the support in their home and wanted to stabilize the wall immediately. DBS went to the home to create a proposal for repairing the wall. Our Design Specialist, Rich Johnsen, suggested the best method of repair was to use the PowerBrace™ Wall Bracing System to make sure the wall was stabilized and safe for the homeowners. Here’s a photo of our PowerBrace™ Wall Bracing System showing how it connects deeply into the ceiling of the home for support and stabilization.

Bowing basement wall, want to prep before basement Remodel
Vicinity of in Minneapolis
I have an old stucco home in South Minneapolis (built 1931). Typical basement of that time period. It's a cluttered mess. And absolutely frigid in the winter. I can chill champagne down there in winter! Wanting a more insulated and inviting space. Inviting laundry space, areas for storage and a place to do projects. I currently craft at my dining room table...not optimum. Four things I hate about basements: damp feel and smell, bugs, very cold in winter, dark and uninviting. Help!

Vicinity of Vincent Avenur North in Minneapolis
Hello, I'm looking for a quote to address support beam rot in our basement. We have rot at the end of a support beam due to moisture over the years. Is that a service your company offers? Also, do you work with a structural engineer or do we need to consult with one, or is that not necessary? We have fixed the moisture problem and are now just looking to ensure the beam rot doesn't affect the structural soundness of our home. Thank you!

We are buying a small cabin near the BWCA, and because it is built above ground, the winter causes it to shift and settle and become unlevel. We are wondering if this foundation solution would be a good fit for solving this issue?
Vicinity of Pillsbury Ave S in Minneapolis
We have some cracks in our foundation that we are looking at repairing.
Vicinity of West Minnehaha Parkway in Minneapolis
We have a boathouse where a portion of the foundation under the walls has been pushed away by ice over the years such that about 3 feet of the walls is cantilevered over the water. The first attached picture is the view of the opening of the boathouse which is 14 feet wide. The second picture show the left side wall and gives a sense of how much of the wall is over the water. A thought is to use two helical piers and then run a steel beam from the piers under the portions of the walls that are cantilevered. Please let me know if you are interested in this project. If not, do you have recommendations on contractors who would be interested in the project.

Wall crack, sagging second-level floor, slightly bowed wall.

We have a ~700 sq ft dry basement we are looking to finish. We'd like to replace original gravity furnace (c. 1914) with a new furnace and move it to a storage room; however, the furnace and connecting pipes are covered in asbestos lagging. We would like to modify the existing plumbing for a 1/2 bath to have a walk-in shower and a laundry room, and to add a living space to be used as a mother-in-law suite. Likely a new electrical sub-box will be needed, as well as bringing the basement plumbing up to code.
