    Basement Insulation and Waterproofing in Salaberry-De-Valleyfield

    This basement in Salaberry-De-Valleyfield has been waterproofed thanks to our WaterGuard interior drain system and our SuperSump sump pump. Once connected, these two products form a highly efficient drainage system that intercepts water from the floor of this basement at the foundation and redirects it away from the foundation of the house. SilverGlow insulation has been added to insulate this space. SilverGlo is an expanded polystyrene insulation infused with graphite. The silver barrier also allows the reflection of heat towards the basement. 

    This insulation and waterproofing system allow the basement space to block any water infiltration as well as preserve heat, which leads to a reduction in energy consumption costs. This basement is not comfortable and can be finished and used efficiently.

    Fixing basement leaks in a basement in Roxboro, Qc

    The most common cause of basement leaks is pressure created by water in the soil surrounding the foundation. During periods of heavy or persistent rain, the soil can become saturated, creating hydrostatic pressure that can push moisture and water through your basement walls and floor.

    So when our client from Roxboro started suffering from water leakage, he knew that he needed a professional intervention to fix this matter, so he contacted our company in order to solve this problem.

    When our specialist Petru went to his place, he assured him that waterproofing the place is the best solution to end his basement problems once and for all.

    The most effective way to keep water out of your basement is to install an interior drainage system as we did here, in order to minimize hydrostatic pressure.

    Our WaterGuard drainage system uses the concept of a traditional French drain and incorporates a unique, patented design that prevents the system from becoming clogged.

    Then we install our TripleSafe sump pump that provides three-in-one waterproofing protection. In the unlikely event that your sump pump system does fails or is overwhelmed, a built-in sump pump alarm will sound off, warning you of an issue.

    If your pump needs to run constantly to keep up with a particularly heavy rainfall for back-to-back days, it could stop working. This typically does not happen with the new pumps available in our company.

    This is why our client in Roxboro, has replaced his old pedestal pump by our new Supersump pump system.

    The SuperSump is much stronger than the pedestal pump, and It is very efficient in those heavy rain days. Its top-rated 1/3 HP Zoeller cast iron pump offers reliability and high-volume pumping.

    Our clients in Saint-Jean Sur Richelieu, called to have their crawl space encapsulated.

    So we started by installing the WaterGuard Interior Drain ‘This channel collects water from the wall floor joint and directs it to the sump chamber’, and then we have connected it to our company’s SuperSump pump that will evacuate water.

    In addition our team has installed the CleanSpace membrane which blocks water vapor from the walls and redirects water to the WaterGuard indoor drain installed directly below.

    The insulation helped solve many issues the client had, and had improved the home comfort, healthfulness, energy efficiency and value of the house.

    By installing a complete waterproofing system, you can no longer witness any humidity and mold growing in that area nor into your house.

    Our WaterGuard interior drain will direct the water to our company’s SuperSump pump system.

    The SuperSump allows evacuating the water that infiltrates. It is clean, clear and nothing can fall into it.

    And finally we insulated the space with our CleanSpace vapor barrier membrane.

    The CleanSpace blocks water vapor from the walls and redirects water to the WaterGuard indoor drain installed directly below. Once installed, we cover the concrete drain and it will not appear anymore.

    Having an old sump pump in your basement will not guarantee you that all the water will be pumped out the place, especially when there is too much rain or flood.

    Mr. Cote had an old sump pump, and he felt that it was not enough, since the basement was always flooding, so he contacted us because he was interested in our patented systems.

    When our specialist went to his place, he recommended the TripleSafe system which contains 3 pumps in a single hermetic coating. The first pump operates under normal conditions. The second pump starts if there is a problem with the first pump or if the flow and volume of water are too big and fast for the first one. This third pump is powered by a rechargeable battery and the SmartWatch alarm alerts you when the emergency battery is running.

    This system is the best on the market and nothing is comparable to it.

    Our client was very pleased with the installation and the peace of mind that the TripleSafe brings her.

    In addition, Mr. Serge has noticed that the sump pump in his basement wasn’t pumping enough water when the water level rises, and this was another main reason why our client wanted to learn about our products, and replace his old sump pump with one of the best pumps available in the market.

    This basement in Varennes was suffering from as high humidity, moisture and growth of mold. When our team went to check up the place, they realized that this house did not have any sump pump installed in the basement which is allowing all the water to seep in during winter time.

    So we suggested the installation of a sump pump right away, in order to waterproof the place.

    Our SuperSump pump is very efficient and will protect the house fully against water flood and mold growth.

    In addition it has a built-in alarm alerts when water level rises too high, and a strong, airtight sump cover lid that is child-safe and keeps out insects, odors and radon gas.

    Actually a sump pump system that does not have an airtight lid will allow bacteria and mold spores to spread into the area.

     In addition, the pump was not very working efficiently during flood and heavy rain periods.

    So our team recommended the installation of the SuperSump pump that has an exceptional performance and value.

    Its top-rated Zoeller cast iron pump offers reliability and high-volume pumping; and it also has a built-in alarm alerts when water level rises too high.

    - A second pump that works during heavy rains or storms

    - A battery booster pump that works during emergencies when there is a power failure.

    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.

    A non-functional sump pump does not help much if your home is sensitive to heavy rain. What is it for if water will seep back inside? That's why we installed our TripleSafe sump pump.

    This system contains 3 pumps and works at all times: under normal conditions, during heavy rains, and at the battery when there is a power failure at home. In fact, if you have your home sometimes followed by power outages during rain storms, your pump will stop working and your basement will be flooded again. We are happy to have been able to help this client avoid this headache with the TripleSafe.

    After examining this place, our team told him that he cannot leave this place wet and unfinished in fear that his family’s health will get worst and they suggested waterproofing and insulating the entire area in order to keep it dry and healthy. We then installed the WaterGuard Interior Drain on the footing of the foundation to intercept water from the sole, walls and floor, and then we have connected it to our company's SuperSump pump that will evacuate water.

    In addition, our team has installed the CleanSpace membrane which blocks water vapor from the walls and redirects water to the WaterGuard indoor drain installed directly below.
