Sam has a vast experience in dealing with people having worked in the hotel industry for many years.
He is used to providing the most pristine customer experience, as he worked in several leading establishments. Sam also has a lot of hands-on experience in construction and renovation. Being a very handy person, he has done most of the renos in his homes and friends’ homes.
Systèmes Sous-sol Québec saw what an asset Sam would be to the company as a System Design Specialist, especially with his experience in home renovation as well as customer service, and immediately brought him onboard. Moreover, he has also earned the prestigious title of “Certified Waterproofing and Foundation Repair Professional”. By sharing his experience with homeowners and explaining the effects of water damage, he can really relate to them and prevent the problems before they occur or worsen.
Mr. Tessier contacted us for a free evaluation to encapsulate his crawl space. There was already insulation, but it was not made with products designed especially for crawl space.
Our specialist Sam went to Saint-Anicet to give this advice and make this submission.
He recommended the installation of our CleanSpace crawl space waterproofing membrane and the SmartDrain drain that will capture the infiltration of water from the earth. All of this is connected to the Sanidry Sedona dehumidification and air purification system. This area is finally dry and clean and contributes to the circulation of clean air throughout the house.
What are the characteristics of an efficient interior drainage system?
- It is designed not to clog and to be positioned on the top of the soil.
- It has a 3/8 inch built-in space between the floor and the wall, to drain infiltrations from the wall.
-It does not depend on a filter cloth.
- It has a large drain outlet for the pump
- Do not cause structural damage to the foundation.
Thus, this system is connected to an airtight sump pump whose cover and lid serve as drains that allow the water to be evacuated and prevent the vapors from disengaging and humidifying the air.
The pump is therefore protected and its efficiency is optimized. The alarm system also lets you know if the volume of water exceeds the minimum level that would start the pump. Thus, in the case of a problem, you will be notified before damage occurs and you will be protected by the battery pump system that will protect your basement in the event of a breakdown.
The expanded polystyrene SilverGlo insulation contains graphite particles that reflect heat and preserve it inside your basement. Thus, the insulation has a lower thermal conductivity, but a higher R-value per inch. The graphite infused polystyrene interior foam resists heat flow. Finally, the radiant barrier reflects the heat inside for ultimate savings in energy consumption.
Our client from Brownsburg noticed that the walls of his foundation were bending inward, and knew that he needed to fix this problem immediately before it gets worse!
After contacting us, our specialist inspected the basement and recommended the installation of the best products that could repair this problem permanently.
Furthermore, we installed several PowerBrace support beams to stabilize the foundation walls and an ArmLock fasteners system that attaches CarbonArmor carbon fiber strips to the joist.
Before: A customer from SouthWest, Montreal started noticing that the floor of his upper house was sagging, in addition to Drywall cracks throughout the house.
This solution pleased this resident of Southwest because it has solved her problems in a short time and for a reasonable investment.
The 3 most common sump pump problems are: the pump breaks down and stops working, the pump cannot keep up with the fast flow and cannot pump too much water or the house suffered a power failure and the pump stops working.
If you have the same problem as it was for our Ogden customer, we have the TripleSafe system that contains 3 different pumps to address each of these 3 risks.
The first one operates under normal conditions, the second one starts when the first one cannot follow the flow and volume, and the last one is a booster pump which starts on a battery during a power failure! Problem fixed!
To keep your basement dry at all times, you need a pump that can work even when electricity is not working. The TripleSafe has 3 sump pumps, one of which runs on the battery. The power of this pump allows you to pump all the water that goes through your drain at any time, even during power outages. The TripleSafe gives you 3 times more work and 3 times more peace of mind. If you live in an area near waterways and are often affected by heavy rains and storms, do as our customer and let us help you solve your basement water problem!
