This newly purchased home in Washburn, WI had some major foundation issues. The crawl space support beams were failing and the homeowner was in need of a permanent solution so they contacted DBS.

DBS Design Specialist Henrik Makitalo went to the home and provided a free, no-obligation estimate for the foundation support work. Henrik saw failure of the existing support system and recommended installing SmartJack® stabilization beams to offer a permanent solution. This home was repaired by DBS Foreman Joe Harris and his production crew.

They installed 25 feet of steel supplement beam, running parallel to the crawl space dirt floor. From there, they installed 8 SmartJack® support beams. 

This home can now be enjoyed without worry of further structural damage!

The owners of this home in Washburn, WI were having issues keeping their basement warm. They reached out to DBS in hopes of finding an energy-efficient solution.

Design Specialist Rich Johnsen went out to the property to conduct a free no-obligation estimate. Rich informed that the issue was caused by improperly sealed rim joists in their basement. Cold air would continue to leak in through the rim joists if left alone.

Foreman Raeshawn Pelfrey led the installation of this project with help from his crew. Together they sprayed waterproof polyurethane foam into each rim joist of the home. The spray foam air seals the space as it expands when applied. Read this article to learn more about rim joists and how DBS can thoroughly insulate your basement.

Now that the rim joists have been air-sealed, the homeowners will be able to relax comfortably in their homes without paying high heating bills.

Job Stories From Washburn, WI
Basement Waterproofing in Washburn, WI

A homeowner in Washburn, WI was in need of an upgrade to their basement waterproofing system to assist in ceasing any future basement flooding. Adding a solid basement waterproofing system is something that any homeowner should consider, whether they have experienced issues or not. This particular homeowner was looking for the right products, they reached out to DBS for help. A Design Specialist went out to the property and provided a thorough inspection of the basement. It was determined that a few different products would need to be installed in order to ensure a quality waterproofing system. First, WaterGuard® would be installed around the perimeter of the basement. This product acts as a drain that catches any unwanted wall or floor seepage. It is an ideal option for basement waterproofing. Along with that, our crew also installed a TripleSafe™ sump pump in the existing basement sump pit. This sump pump will work to extract leaking water through a discharge line to a more appropriate exterior location. The results of the project turned out great, and the homeowner can now be more comfortable with an upgraded basement system.
