When this customer first experienced foundation problems they had a home-made solution that had not helped to permanently stabilize or straighten the wall. We used Geo-Lock anchors to stabilize the wall and straighten it over time. The first photo is mid-way through the project. After another anchor was added and both were tightened, the large crack in the wall closed up.

When large walls in common spaces are under-insulated it can result in major heat loss in the home. Especially when paired with large windows it is important to retain as much heat as possible to create a comfortable living environment. This customer's entire wall needed to be re-insulated using spray foam insulation which provides the highest r-value in tight spaces and has additional air sealing properties. This large wall is now an asset in this customer's home, retaining heat for a comfortable space and making the property more energy efficient.

This is a great example of how the use of PowerBraces™ can help straighten and strengthen a wall over time. System Design Specialist, Royce Bunn visited this home and proposed the use of six PowerBraces™ to fix the bowing wall. The homeowner had tried various other solutions over the years to fix the bowing wall, but nothing had helped. They even had another foundation wall installed to help fix the bowing exterior wall. The homeowner now rests easy as the experts at DBS have found a permanent solution to fix this problem.

Significant Foundation and Waterproofing Support Needed for Two Harbors, MN Home

These homeowners in Two Harbors, MN were concerned over growing issues with their home's foundation. Cracking and shifting in their basement walls were causing structural instability and water to leak into the home. After talking with us at the Duluth Home Show, the homeowners decided to contact us for a permanent solution to this issue. 

Sales Manager Royce Bunn was the Design Specialist for this project and first visited the home for a free, no-obligation estimate. He determined that the home needed both a waterproofing and foundation support system installed. 

A DBS foreman and crew installed 5 PowerBrace support beams that will be used to immediately stop the wall from moving and will be tightened to restore the wall to its original position. A TripleSafe™ sump pump was also installed to support the existing drainage in the family's basement.

Large Home Repair Project in Two Harbors, MN

A homeowner in Two Harbors, MN recently reached out to DBS regarding many different areas of their home in need of repairs. The foundation was in need of lifting, for it had settled in the ground due to poor stabilization. Aside from that, the crawlspace of the home would need to have some serious debris removed, in order for better structural support to be installed, along with a waterproofing system. Lastly, the garage structure would also need to be lifted for piers to be installed. This was a lot of ground to cover for the DBS team, but nevertheless, the crew was up for the task. Design Specialist Henrik Makitalo visited the home, and provided a free, no-obligation estimate for all of the services. All in all, it was determined that the home foundation would need to have 21 total piers installed. The reason being is that it will allow for maximum lift and support for the settling foundation, and can help to prevent future damages to the home. Along with the piers, there was a considerable amount of dirt within the crawl space area, which had to be removed in order to proceed. Afterwards, the crew would encapsulate the space with CleanSpace®, and install a SmartSump® pump for water protection. On the back end of the project, the crew would have to lift the garage structure for proper pier placement, which would be the last overall step in the entire job process. Overall, the large task is nothing new to the DBS team, who have pursued it with full confidence in their abilities.

My house is on a post foundation with a crawl space. The kitchen was an addition in probably the 40's and was excavated with cement block walls and a dirt floor. The sheet rock in the corner of my bathroom on the outer wall has shifted and the siding is wavy outside in that spot. Also, my cement enclosure is bulging. My double hung windows are crooked in the dining room. I am looking for estimates to repair and level my foundation.

We have had some cracks appear this spring in our basement wall and would be interested in an inspection.
Project Location: Two Harbors, MN
I have a 12' x 20' concrete patio (concrete depth - approximately 3" deep) The patio was originally installed with a wire mesh laid in the concrete as it was poured. It is cracked down the middle, somewhat parallel to the longer sides. The patio has also settled and the crack widened over time - maybe up to a 1 " crack. I'm wondering if it would be possible to raise approximately 1/2 of the patio level the sides along the crack and reduce the size of the crack. Then fill the crack with some type of material. My goal is to return the slope of the concrete away from the house and to level the patio so a snowblower or shovel doesn't catch the large and unlevel crack. Replacing the patio will cost between $1300 and $1800. Would your process be cost effective?
