Mrs. Emannuelle, a client from St-Anicet, was having water infiltration problems that were damaging her entire basement area, even though she had already a pedestal sump pump installed in the basement.
After contacting us, we have recommended the replacement of her old sump pump system with the new SuperSump pump since the old one was not efficient and was letting moisture come inside the house.
Mr. Sirois noticed a high humidity in the house, cold air on the main floor coming from the floor and some places of the hardwood floor on the main floor was no longer at level. The cause was the humidity in the crawl space. He contacted Systèmes Sous-sol Québec to add a good vapor barrier membrane, clean the crawl space to improve air quality and reduce the humidity.
Adding a SmartSump sump pump system, a drainage membrane and CleanSpace vapor barrier. Most of the moisture in the crawl space comes from the earthen floor that contains water and it can come also from the walls. The SmartSump will therefore be able to remove water from the ground outside and away from the foundation. The drainage membrane, on the other hand, is placed on the ground and makes it possible to drain the water that is on the surface towards the sump pump system. The CleanSpace coating which acts as a vapor barrier is placed over the drainage membrane and blocks moisture from the ground.
Our clients in Gatineau were suffering from water infiltration problems in their home's basement which caused humidity in the area and has also lead to severe coldness in the basement that has reached the whole house as well.
As you can see in the first picture, the water has penetrated the floors and structural paint damages have occurred on the walls.
Our clients are now very happy since they did not face any humidity problems again and can enjoy their new warm, dry and beautiful basement.
The residents of this house in Gatineau suffered from a very high level of humidity, caused by a non-isolated crawl space.
They have also noticed that the floor was sagging which caused them a deep concern.
As you can see in this picture, we have totally encapsulated the crawl space and the foundation.
This client had cracks repaired in one wall of his block foundation, but had not repaired all of the walls. Over time, one of the walls will start to arch and tilt inward from the basement. If nothing will be done, the situation will only get worse. So, he contacted Systèmes sous-sol Québec in order to stabilize his wall once and for all!
