Homeowners in Grand Rapids, MN worked with DBS to correct their home's failing foundation. After that work was complete, they also decided to take steps to seal and support their crawl space with our Dr. Energy Saver services.

Sales Manager Royce Bunn was the Design Specialist on this project. After inspecting the damp crawl space, Royce recommended installing CleanSpace® vapor barrier over drainage matting, as well as a SmartSump™ to direct any water away from the space. 

The DBS Foreman and his production crew installed these products as well as 6 SmartJack® System beams to lift and support the crawl space. The installation was finished with TerraBlock™ insulation to prevent cold, damp air from entering the space. 

This home is now fully supported and will be healthy, safe, and comfortable for years to come.

Job Stories From Grand Rapids, MN
Cold Home in Grand Rapids, MN Restored with Attic Insulation

The owner of this home in Grand Rapids, MN reached out to DBS about improving their energy efficiency. They knew that their attic was in need of new insulation and they reached out to DBS for more information.

Our Design Specialist visited the home to provide a free, no-obligation estimate for the insultation job. We recommended a combination of closed-cell spray foam and our Dr. Energy Saver® SilverGlo™ rigid foam insulation.

Our DBS production crew first completely removed the existing insualtion. They then air sealed the space using ZypFoam, paying particular attention to sealing all visible cracks in between the building material. This will assist in holding in heated air, and prevent ice dam build-up. Once that was complete, they installed SilverGlo™ insulation, thoughly lining the attic space. This was followed by spray foam to completely seal the space from floor to ceiling.

High energy bill Ice dams from escaping heat on roof. Old house, I want to prioritize energy saving projects when doing a home remodeling. My windows may need to be upgraded. My insulation needs to be reviewed.

I need to install a new roof and half of my house is vaulted, so i'm looking for an estimate to spray insulation in after i remove the old roofing, sheathing and insulation.
Vicinity of West Splithand Road in Grand Rapids
We recently purchased a fixer upper cabin. The foundation is post and pier from the 70's. We knew we had some joist issues, but the inspector was not able to access the crawl space during the winter to evaluate. We have found that the previous owner sealed up the space and never opened the venting to allow for circulation. I have replaced/sistered about half of the joists, but the existing ones are heavily rotted and moldy. Looking for possible options on insulating the floor and other solutions you may have to curb the moisture issues. I have installed a crawl space fan into the skirting and opened all of the vents. Of course, 9" of rain in July has not helped us out here. Thank you

Looking to improve efficiency of house in hopes of reducing high electric bill! Long-term goal of becoming sustainable? But new to house and looking for first steps.
Vicinity of Willow Lane in Grand Rapids
I have a home in Grand Rapids that I purchased 2 years age that hav some insulation issues. While remodeling the bathroom last fall, I found 3" exterior walls with about 1" of fiberglass insulation and no vapor barrier. I think foam insulation would probably the best solution. When can we get together?
Vicinity of Allen Dr in Grand Rapids
I am about to purchace a home at the address above and am curious as to how much a barrier system would cost. The home is 1500sq ft. There doesn't seem to be any water intrusion but I would like a rough estimate to seal vents and lay down the 20 mil vapor barrier. I would not consider this an official estimate, just a ballpark so I can negotiate this into the purchase agreement. If this sale goes through I will have you do the service. Thank you Ron
