Homeowners of this property in Nashwauk, MN noticed that their basement wall had separated from the flooring while they were installing an egress window over the past summer. One of the owners was referred to DBS by a co-worker, who had seen an advertisement for DBS on their local television station. Looking for a permanent solution to their issue, they contacted DBS.

Design Specialist James Miller went out to the property to conduct a free no-obligation estimate. After completing a thorough inspection, James informed the homeowners that their home would be a great candidate for DBS's PowerBrace™ Wall Bracing System solution. This solution would help to correct the displacement of the wall over time and prevent the wall from additional cracking.

Foreman Osia Williams led the installation for this project, and with the help of his crew, they successfully installed 4 PowerBrace™ I-beams. The I-beams were a great solution to this basement's issue because each I-beam has a bracket at the top that can be tightened during dry seasons in order to help straighten the wall.

The owners can now relax comfortably in their home knowing that their foundation has been permanently stabilized, and they have peace of mind knowing that they don't need to worry about replacing the entire wall anymore.

The homeowner of this cabin in Nashwauk, MN noticed that the floors were sagging and were concerned that they would eventually cave in. The original foundation supports were made with wood and over time they settled into the soil as moisture levels changed. Looking for a permanent solution to stabilize their flooring, the owner contacted DBS.

Design Specialist Henrik Makitalo went out to the property to conduct a free no-obligation estimate for the owner. After completing a thorough inspection, Henrik advised them that DBS has a solution specifically designed to combat sagging floors called the SmartJack® System.

Foreman Trevor Ingle led the installation of this project and with the help of a crew, successfully installed 5 SmartJack® supports. They also replaced the main wooden beam with a steel beam to further ensure the stability of the new support system. Installing the SmartJack® System effectively raised and leveled the sagging floors, providing permanent stabilization and prevention from the potential of caved-in flooring.

Job Stories From Nashwauk, MN
Wall Stabilization Project in Nashwauk, MN.

Homeowners in Nashwauk, MN called DBS with a concern that their foundation was unsafe and their walls were unstable. We sent a design specialist to the home and found a solution for our clients. DBS proposed that we install CarbonArmor® Wall Reinforcing System to help stabilize the wall, then we put a water-guard drainage system and a TripleSafe® sump pump system to make sure that the home stays waterproof. Our sump pump system will make sure that the water is managed and the drain will take care of any water that gets in. We’ve included some photos from before DBS began production to see what you can look for with foundation problems. Our wall stabilization services make sure that your home is safe and sturdy for years into the future!

My foundation is cracked and leaking. Id estimates on what it costs to fix and finish the basement so I can look into how big of a loan I need to ask for
Project Location: Nashwauk, MN
We have a crawlspace that has been neglected for unknown time. It has no barrier and there is dampness issues, There is a sump pump, effectiveness unknown. House Inspector noticed same dampness signs on joists, slight mold in certain areas, some soft points/rot in the joists and frames that need to be repaired or strengthen or replaced. We would like all compromised structures repaired or replaced, old eliminated, dampness issues addressed and solutions implemented, and increase vapor and insulation factors for the entire space. The cabin is built on piers and was added on in 1956? So there are two different crawl spaces connected to each other but different footing and depths. We would like to plan for a second half bath added and input would be appreciated in regards to planning plumbing needs based on insulation of insulation and vapor barriers. We would really like to get this done before the winter.
Project Location: Nashwauk, MN
We are looking to purchase a cabin and the inspection recommended preparing foundation by replacing some boards, adding protection barrier all around, crawl space vapor barrier or encapsulation, and re-grading around the main cabin. I am looking for a rough estimate of what it would cost to repair before we counter offer.
