    The area where I live gives no access to the back yard with the houses close together. Kevin, Zach and Jose did not let this stop them. They worked around the obstacles in an efficient manner. Kevin kept in communication with me in a friendly manner. The work was site cleaned up. I would recommend them to others.

Jose Valenzuela from DBS

Jose works as an installer on one of the DBS installation crews. He has experience working with all of our different services (foundation repair, insulation, finishing) but he gets the most enjoyment from working with our Foundation Repair and Waterproofing teams. He believes that this is what gives customers the most peace of mind and creates a safe home for our customers and their families.  Jose began working with DBS in 2016 after working in a large casino as an electrician and maintenance worker. He has enjoyed the change in careers and especially appreciates the focus DBS has on their customer with their WOW service program. When Jose isn't at work he enjoys fishing, helping his friends & family, and especially cooking.

  • Power Brace Installation in Saint Louis Park, MN

    This homeowner in Saint Louis Park was concerned about the stability of her home. She had noticed a crack in the wall of her garage and wanted to get the problem fixed. After calling DBS, an appointment was set to have System Design Specialist, Rich Johnsen come out to the home for a free, no-obligation estimate. Following a thorough inspection on the day of the appointment, Rich was able to explain to the homeowner why the problem was happening and the best possible solution to fix it. He explained that the movement of the soil beneath the home had caused the foundation to move also. When this happens, pressure builds and the wall cracks in order to release some of the pressure. If the problem is not fixed, pressure will continue to build and the problem will only get worse. A permanent solution would be to install a PowerBrace™ Wall Bracing System. This would keep the wall in place and prevent it from moving further. Through tightening over time, the braces will slowly bring the wall back into place. After a signed proposal, a date was set to have Foreman, Kevin Steffey come out to the home to install the system. Once the PowerBrace’s™ were professionally installed, the homeowner could rest easy in the safety of her home.
