We had a customer call in about a home he had just purchased with no insulation in the crawl space. We had set the appointment for him, promising him a free written estimate provided by one of our specialist. We finished with a happy customer. He now has a clean crawl space, his home is comfortable, free from cold drafts, little critters, and the smell of mold.

This home had very little insulation protecting it from the unconditioned attic space. In order to remedy this situation we first sprayed in a layer of spray foam insulation around the whole base of the attic. This gave us a good base of insulation to work from and provided a much tighter air seal for the home. Next, we blew in around 18" of cellulose insulation. The combination of these insulation techniques now gives the homeowner a much more comfortable home with very little heat escaping through the attic in the winter.

This customer was losing heat through their basement walls, in addition, they were unknowingly allowing cold air to enter their home. With these bare basement walls and uninsulated rim joists, this basement was a leading cause of inefficiency in the home. These issues were fixed by spraying a layer of spray foam around the perimeter of the basement including the tight and hard to reach spaces like the rim joists. The basement now adds energy efficiency to the home and provides a nice clean look that the walls had previously been lacking. If this homeowner were to finish this basement we let them know that we also offer complete basement finishing services.

Job Stories From Duluth, MN
Insulating and Stopping Mold in Duluth, Minnesota Basement

This Duluth homeowner had troubles with mold developing in their basement due to a moist basement atmosphere. Coupled with this issue, the customer was also experiencing heat loss through the rim joist of their home. Our specialist Henrik helped educate the homeowner on the value of insulating the rim joist and maintaining a dry basement. With the information and Henrik's professional assessment of the basement, the homeowner agreed that it would be helpful to insulate the rim joists and use a dehumidifier to control the humidity issues in the basement.


The insulation we typically use in this scenario is spray foam insulation. Spray foam insulation is the most well-suited insulation for the job because it provides a high r-value in this small space and it fills in gaps in the walls to properly air seal the space. Proior to installing the insulation we used a special solution to kill the existing mold in the basement and installed our Sanidry System. The Sanidry is an incredibly powerful and efficient dehumidification system that we install for our customers all the time. It keeps the basement at a safe humidity level year round. With the old mold killed and a humidity level below 60% across the basement this homeowner should not have to worry in the future about the effects of mold. Henrik and the team at DBS have created a space that is now much more comfortable and safe for the homeowner and that is exactly why we do the work that we do!

Keep apartment more consistent in the winter and reduce indoor alergens in Duluth, MN

Arlette D. main concern was that her apartment was very inconsistent in the winter, going from cold to warm.  She saw our booth at the Duluth Home and Garden show and signed up to have an appointment with Ron Sundberg, our design specialist.  After Ron offered the best solution to make her apartment more consistent and comfortable, our foreman Luc Bonk and his crew,went there and airsealed and insulated her attic and walls, using expanding polyurethane foam to air seal and blow in TruSoft insulation. After the attic was insulated well, they installed a David Lewis Attic access hatch cover.   They also replaced 2 windows with 2 Sunrise Double-Hung windows.  Then they airsealed and insulated the crawlspace using polyurethane foam, Cleanspace liner and TerraBlock insulation on the floor. To make sure the basement stays dry and the air that flows up and carries the allergens is reduced, Luc and crew installed a SaniDry Air Dehumidification System in the basement next to the sump and will drain into the sump.

There is no doubt that Arlette is now enjoying a consistently more comfortable home. DBS Residential Solutions was pleased that they could solve Arlette's comfort problems in Duluth, MN, in the winter, once and for all!
