This South Minneapolis home had been in the family for a couple generations. Wanting to restore the cracking and shifting foundation, the owner contacted DBS. 

DBS Sales Manager Royce Bunn visited the home to provide a free, no-obligation estimate for the foundation project. Royce thoroughly measured the foundation settlement and discovered that one side of the house in particular was sinking, cause the rest of the foundation to crack and shift as well. 

Zach Jorenby and his crew excavated the exterior of the home in order to perform a lift procedure. Our team installed 20 push piers total at the base of the home on the exterior of the home. These galvanized steel piers were then hydraulicaly driven into the ground to weight-bearing soils. The weight of the home was then transferred to the competent soil.

On the home's interior, our production crew used PowerBrace™ steel I-beams to support the buckling wall on the inside.

The homeowners were happy with the work done and can now depend on a safe and comfortable home for years to come.

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.

Work Requests From Minneapolis, MN
Vicinity of Howell St N in Minneapolis
Hello! I have an old home in St. Paul that is currently a rental. It has a partial basement, partial crawlspace with a limestone foundation. The foundation in the basement part is in pretty decent shape but the floor of that basement is pretty bad (lots of busted concrete/dirt). The crawlspace is in need of some love. In 2012 when I bought the property the crawlspace was completely closed off. We opened it up and found that one foundation wall was in really bad shape and did a quick fix of tearing it out and replacing it with a wood foundation wall on a footing. I'm looking to sell the property at some point and want to fix up the crawl space to make it less scary, and potentially look at replacing that section of wood foundation wall with block. Looking forward to hearing your suggestions! - Cory

Basement was finished when I bought the house in 2003. Had water damage so gutted the rooms. Unfortunately, person who was working on finishing had to move out of town before job completed. Maybe 60% done now?
