    Homeowners in Duluth, MN reached out to DBS for information on crawlspace waterproofing and insulation after working with us previously.

    Design Specialist Rich Johnsen provided a free, no-obligation estimate which resulted in a plan of action for waterproofing and insulation for the home. DBS Foreman Kevin Steffey and his production crew cleaned and prepped the space before installing CleanSpace® waterproofing material in the crawlspace. Spray foam was installed along the rest of the area for proper insulation.

    Spray Foam Insulation for Drafty Superior, WI Crawl Space

    Owners of this Superior, WI were experiencing issues with their dirt crawl space. Moisture in the warm months and cold air in the winter months were causing undesirable conditions for the rest of the home. After seeing our website, they decided to contact us in search of a permanent solution to the problem. 

    DBS Design Specialist Rich Johnsen visited the home and provided a free, no-obligation estimate for some insulation work. A DBS Foreman and crew installed closed-cell spray foam carefully along the base and rim joists of the crawl space foundation. This Spray Foam insulation will assist in completely sealing the space from outside air and moisture. 

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

    Attic Insulation for Duluth, MN Homeowners Solves Heating and Pest Issues

    This Duluth, MN homeowner was tired of rising heating bills in the wintertime. Not to mention the attic had issues with mice, making conditions uncomfortable for the homeowner. Via an employee referral, this homeowner decided to contact DBS for a solution to this issue. 

    Design Specialist Rich Johnsen visited this home and provided a free, no-obligation estimate. Upon inspection, Rich found a few areas where the home was losing heat. One of the main areas that needed to be addressed was the attic insulation, as it was old and lacking the proper depth to achieve the desired R-value.

    A DBS production crew removed the existing attic insulation and applied blown-in insulation to the proper depth for a strong R-value standard. 

    The homeowner now has a better insulation system, keep the home's energy bills down!
