A homeowner in Paynesville, MN was experiencing issues with the crawl space of their home. The area was comprised of wood posts and cinder blocks to help support it, and over time, it began to settle and caused the floor above to sag. The owner was curious as to what DBS could offer for a solution, so we had a Design Specialist visit and give a free, no-obligation estimate for the crawl space repair. Our crew was able to install the SmartJack® System to help stabilize the sagging floor, and even work to push it back to the original positioning. The results of the project can be viewed here.

Owners of this 1950's cabin in Paynesville, MN were experiencing issues with the foundation and crawl space. There was some considerable cracking in the foundation that was causing the structure to settle. After seeing our website, they decided to contact us in search of a permanent solution to the problem. 

A Dr. Energy Saver Design Specialist provided a free, no-obligation estimate for the foundation work and also provided a proposal for crawl space encapsulation. The cabin owners decided to go forward with both projects. The crawl space first had drainage matting laid on the dirt floors of the space. From there, DBS Foreman Zach Royer and his production team installed CleanSpace® vapor barrier to protect the space from moisture. Spray Foam insulation was also added to completely seal the space from outside air and moisture. 

This crawl space is now completely sealed, regulating temperature, and moisture levels for the entire home.

Job Stories From Paynesville, MN
Push Pier System and CleanSpace® Save Paynesville, MN Cabin

These cabin owners in Paynesville, MN contacted DBS when their concrete block foundation began to crack and the house was noticeably sloping into the ground. The home also had a musty smell that was coming from their crawlspace. DBS Design Specialist Hunter Riley went to the home and provided a free, no-obligation estimate where all of the repair options were made available. The first step was to permanently stabilize the foundation of the house. This was accomplished by installing our Push Pier system which is completely concealed underground after the install. The next step was to install our SmartJack® system where rotting wood posts were previously located. The final part of the solution was to install CleanSpace® waterproofing in the crawlspace to keep it dry from sitting water and prevent mold from occurring which results in a musty smell in the home. Foreman Steve Lafontaine and his production crew successfully installed all of the products. The homeowners now enjoy a permanently safe, level and dry cabin.

Project Location: Paynesville, MN
I just bought a house and the garage is built into a hill so the back wall and side wall are completely underground. Both walls are bowing in. A structural engineer suggested stabilizing the walls in place using posts, soil anchors, or carbon fiber strips.
