Homeowners in Silver Bay, MN wanted to gain some extra space in their home by upgrading their basement. It had some issues with water leaking and cold drafts in the wintertime, so the family contacted DBS for a free, no-obligation estimate for their home repair.

DBS Design Specialist Henrik Makitalo is an expert in diagnosing foundation and water issues in local homes. After a thorough inspection, he proposed an interior waterproofing system with a French drain and vapor barrier. Furthermore, he recommended insulating the rim joists to keep cold outside air from entering the basement.

Our crews first completed the waterproofing project, installing over 100 feet of WaterGuard® along the basement perimeter walls. The drain system is designed to catch any moisture from the foundation's footing and will carry it to the new TripleSafe™ sump pump. From there, our team installed closed-cell spray foam to properly insulate the rim joists, and new EverLast™ windows for an energy-efficient alternative to natural light in the basement.

Job Stories From Silver Bay, MN
Waterproofing and GeoLock® Installation in Silver Bay, MN

A homeowner in Silver Bay, MN was experiencing several issues with their basement that needed to be addressed. the home had a failing foundation that could end up causing further structural damage, and it was allowing water to enter the home and cause basement flooding. Basement flooding is a common result of a poor home foundation, so often times the services of waterproofing and foundation repair will be combined. The first step for the crew, in this case, was to properly excavate the outer area of the foundation in order to install the foundation product GeoLock®. The GeoLock® system is comprised of galvanized steel anchors that are embedded into the excavated area, then attached by a steel rod to a separate anchor pulling on the interior portion of the foundation wall. The GeoLock® system can be used to seize further bowing movements of a foundation wall, and can even work to pull it back to its original positioning. After the foundation repair, the crew would install exterior drainage from the basement to ensure no further flooding within the area. The overall results of the project turned out great, and the homeowner can now be more comfortable with an updated basement system. 

Dry Basement Project in Silver Bay, MN.

Homeowners in Silver Bay, MN called DBS looking to keep their entire basement dry. We sent our Design Specialist, Royce Bunn, to the household to create an easy solution for our clients. Royce took a look at the home and decided our clients needed interior waterproofing services.

Specifically, DBS would install our SuperSump™ Premier Pump System in the home to make sure the water is being handled through our premium sump pump system, rather than going into the basement. We also recommended the homeowners have interior waterproofing system installed around the area of one specific wall that was having trouble with water getting in through the walls. In the photo we’ve included below, it highlights the water damage on the wall that DBS installed interior waterproofing system. If your home looks similar to the pictures below, or you’ve been noticing water damage, give DBS a call for a no-obligation, free estimate!

Energy Efficient Project in Silver Bay, MN.

When the problem in your home is a lack of energy efficiency, DBS has a solution. A home in Silver Bay was looking to make their extra room more energy efficient. Our solution was to use our spray foam service on the ceiling, a few general problem areas, and the garage/guest house area connected to the room. The spray foam would work to keep the garage warmer in the winter and separate the heating between the two areas. It would also make the lower level more comfortable for the family in the winters. We’ve included some before photos of the area that insulation would be installed.
