Our Company’s team of experienced technicians went to encapsulate the Crawl Space in La Petite Patrie. Our client’s house had problems of humidity causing bad smells in the residence.
The team installed a CleanSpace membrane, specifically designed to create an ultra-resistant moisture barrier, which will greatly help prevent mold growth. This product is guaranteed for 25 years and consists of a robust material with a thickness of 20 mil.
After the installation of this product, the Crawl Space has better look and the service cellar is much brighter, due to the whiteness and specifications of the membrane.
We repaired the basement slab that was sagging at this house in Verdun. Symptoms can be clearly seen in the cracks existing throughout the wooden support columns in the crawl space. By installing our slab piers, we stabilized the slab and the sagging floors in the upper house.
Our client from Hochelage, Montreal started noticing Drywall cracks throughout the house in addition to sagging floors which made him contact Systèmes Sous-sol Québec’to have his crawl space encapsulated.
In this picture you can see the big difference between an encapsulated and an uninsulated crawl space.
The insulation helped solve many issues the client had, and had improved the home comfort, healthfulness, energy efficiency and value of the house by insulating the upper floors from the cold, making the Crawl Space clean and letting her use the crawlspace as an additional storage room.
Back in 2012 when this client noticed that there was a crack in the brick wall on the outside of his home, he got worried. After contacting us, we sent out specialist Jorge to see what was going on, and just as we thought, it was a foundation problem caused by moving soils.
Outside cracks are a sign that your foundations are damaged and unstable. And this is a problem that should be treated as soon as possible before it worsens. This is why our foreman Petru installed 4 PushPiers: heavy duty galvanized steel pillars that will fix your foundations permanently.
