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.

Bowing block walls and differential settling prevent finish work in our basement and cause concern for renovations on the main level. Would love to lower the basement floor, finish and replace mechanicals someday, too. House is 1923 single-story. I'm a residential architect who works with many builders, but am curious about the efficiency of working with a team that focuses specifically on this scope. We also support public radio which is where I first heard your ad. Thanks!

Beams in basement and foundation
Project Location: Minneapolis, MN
Hi, I have a small 1,000 sq ft home in South Minneapolis. My basement is pretty close to the original coal shoot or cellar from the 1910s and it needs some help. First priority is waterproofing, I'm working on the outside to do some grading fixes but there is past water damage and a new leak that needs to be taken care of. Next two priorities are (1) repairing or re-doing the concrete staircase and (2) taking a look at how joists/columns are doing and if they need any footings, securing or replacement. Thanks!

We have a hard to reach crawl space under the living room (subfloor). With radon measurements in the 2-5 range we're thinking a vapor barrier or encapsulation might be in order. We haven't noticed a problem with moisture. To gain access to the subfloor the hole/entrance into that area will need to be enlarged. Looking for suggestions/quote
