Mrs. Monique B. from Gatineau called us to tell us about her problems related to mold and moisture in her crawl space. Our crew then proceeded to install a CleanSpace membrane, a SmartSump pump system, and two SmartJack support pillars. They also applied Mold-X Neutralizer to areas affected by mold. Our customer can now enjoy her basement without having to worry about water getting in!
Mr. Alex S and his wife owned a house in Gatineau and they were having severe water infiltration problems in their basement every year during spring time, due to the failure of the usual French drain and their old sump pump system.
After contacting many companies that failed to fix their problem, our customers decided to call our company for a free inspection. Following that call, our team estimated their basement and had the perfect solution to solve their problem.
Our professionals suggested the installation of a WaterGuard interior foundation drain and a TripleSafe sump pump. You can see the difference between the existing pump and the one we installed in the picture above.
Now the homeowners are very happy and relaxed since they did not face anymore leaking problems in their basement again.
One of the most common complaints of old-house owners is sagging floors.
This is the case of our client in Gatineau who called us to repair his crawl space after many failure attempts to fix this problem.
Furthermore we have installed our companies’ SmartJack Support Pillars which are steel support systems used to stabilized and level the girders and floor joists in a crawl space, in addition to our companies’ CleanSpace liner to keep moisture from entering the area through the dirt floor.
This old sump pump was not working efficiently, so our client looked online and discovered our TripleSafe sump pump. She called us to have it installed in her home. The TripleSafe, has 3 pumps in a single uni and has an alarm system that will alert you when your pump is functioning on a battery. No water will leak into your home no matter the weather.
When water seeps into the crawl space and gets stuck, the water evaporates into the air and humidifies the basement.
This is the case of our client’s crawl space in Notre-Dame-de-l'Île-Perrot, that had a 79% of humidity in the place, in addition to a wet and dirty area all the time.
Our team recommended a waterproofing solution and that would solve the problem of infiltration of water and moisture.
This basement in Hawkesbury, Qc was suffering from water infiltration although it had already a pump used. To fix this situation, we replaced the pedestal pump by our TripleSafe so that our client could use his basement without worrying about potential risks.
When we first met these clients, they had a very high level of humidity in their basement, mainly due to an open sump pump pit. An open pit with constantly running water is like a humidifier in your house!
The homeowners would never know if and when their pump stopped working, so we installed our SuperSump system that comes with a WaterWatch Alarm. to let them know if their pump stopped working. In addition, the completely sealed system helped a lot in keeping the humidity levels lower in their basement.
When the specialist visited this house, he noticed that the concrete block foundation wall was failing. One of the signs that often appears is a stair-shaped crack around the blocks or an interior curvature of the wall. The PowerBrace system is zinc plated and is specially adapted for the height of your basement. They are secured in the ground and on your wall thanks to brackets anchored in the joists. This unique system is designed by engineers to be adjusted and tightened over the years in order to reverse the problem of wall failure without having to dig and start large foundation projects. This system strengthens your foundations instantly and brings value back to your home.
Our clients in Beaconsfield had a water infiltration problem due the sump pump overflowing during a big rain. They thought this could happen again, as they only had one pump in the pit and there was no battery backup system. They only knew about there issue when it was too late and the water was already on their basement floor. Also their sump pit was open, causing a lot of humidity in the basement.
As they thought this could definitely happen again, they called us to install a sump pit with the intention of finishing their basement. They needed a system that would give them the peace of mind, once and for all. As such, our specialist recommended the TripleSafe sump pump system, as this met the clients' needs with features such as 2 main pumps, one battery-operated backup pump, an alarm system and an airtight sump lid to help lower the humidity level in the basement.
We repaired a client's foundation in Sainte-Geneviève. When your concrete block foundation walls begin to crack, it is a sign that yours is no longer stable. This is an important sign to consider a repair, but when the wall starts to bend, there is clearly a failure that needs to be addressed.
The PowerBrace system consists of galvanized steel beams that stabilize the walls. It is a system that tightens overtime to counter the problem and bring the foundation back to its original position.
You will not find similar beams. That's why they are patented.
If you notice a problem of foundation, our specialists can help you by recommending you a solution adapted to the problem of your house in order to protect you and to restore the value of your home.
Water was seeping into this house in Sainte-Geneviève at the foot of the foundation.
The sump pump was installed in a sump hole that was not sealed. Dirt penetrated and moisture escaped.
Our client could not install an outdoor French drain because there was landscaping and a stone deck on the outside perimeter of the house where the water was seeping.
We have solved the problem and made the basement dry at all times, thanks to our complete waterproofing solution.
In order to remove the water effectively, we installed the TripleSafe system which provides triple protection. Then we installed our WaterGuard indoor drain system to prevent water infiltration from entering the living space of the basement.
Our ThermalDry system was then installed to create a thermal break and spaces to drain water while preventing water vapor from entering the basement.
This client contacted our company to tell us that she had water leaking in her crawl space, centered around a pipe. It became worse in the rainy and melting seasons. So to solve her problem, we installed two SmartJacks, our WaterGuard drain, our SuperSump pump and injtected FlexiSpan. She now has a dry and stable crawlspace.
When our client in Sainte-Marthe-Sur-Le-Lac noticed that the floor of his basement was sinking, he contacted us in order to recommend a solution that will strengthen the existing beams and stabilizing the foundations permanently.
Furthermore, we ended up installing 11 SmartJack support beams. SmartJacks are steel support devices that are used specifically in crawl spaces to stabilize and level beams and floor joists. The SmartJack can support a load of over 60,000 pounds. These high strength galvanized steel girders can adapt to the height of your crawl space. This system can support the weight of your home, repair your bending floors and stabilize the foundations of your home.
A client from Verdun had moisture problems in his Crawl Space. He noticed that some of the joists of his house were sagging slightly, making the floors of his house no longer level.
Our technicians led by foreman Eugene Alexeenco then proceeded to install a CleanSpace membrane, a SmartSump pump system, and two SmartJack support pillars. They also applied the Mold-X Neutralizer to areas affected by mold.
Mr. Karim is now reassured that the humidity which caused issues in her Crawlspace is a thing of the past!
Our company’s sump pump systems have the following features: a good cast iron pump, a tight-fitting lid to keep the moisture from entering the basement, an alarm system that sounds when the water level is close to the overflow point, a floor drain in case a plumbing leak occurs, and finally a booster pump system which operates on a direct current battery.
Whatever is in your basement air is in your house and affecting you, whether you spend much time in the basement or not. If there is high humidity downstairs, there is higher humidity upstairs than there would be otherwise.
If there is mold in the basement, there are mold spores upstairs. If there are damp odors downstairs, you get the idea!
Those are the reasons why waterproofing the basement is very important, for your health as well as the house’s state as well.
The interior drain ‘The WaterGuard’ system will capture wall and floor seepage before it reaches your basement floor.
As for our Supersump pump system, it is considered one of the best pumps in the market; it has an airtight lid on it to prevent water from evaporating out of the sump hole into your basement, to stop stuff from falling in, that can clog the pump or switch, and to quiet the system.
We are pleased to have installed our Sump pump systems in Outremont city.
Sump pump system’s job is to get rid of all water before it gets into your basement and causes flooding and damage. All the water intercepted is evacuated far from the house.
The SuperSump pump is considered one of the finest sump pumps on the market; our Supersump pump includes a reliable pump, a ‘Water Watch’ alarm system and a patented super liner with an airtight lid. This pump has proven itself time and time again over the years.
Our SuperSump will smoothly and quietly pump 2220 gallons per hour at an 8-foot discharge head (43gpm). It resists clogging and can pump up to 12mm in solids.
A resident of Saint-Lambert contacted Basement Systems Quebec in order to have his basement inspected by a specialist. Due to hydrostatic pressure, the water that accumulated around the foundation easily seeped through it and ended up on the basement floor. Our technicians recommended the installation of the WaterGuard interior foundation drain system and the SuperSump sump pump system. Once the installation was complete, our client’s basement was completely waterproofed.
Here is one of our work in Greenfield Park, Qc where we have installed a SuperSump pump in our client’s basement.
The SuperSump pump offers reliability and high-volume pumping and makes sure that your basement will always be dry!
This client was referred to our company by one of his friends who has waterproofed his basement once and for all! When he saw the results, he figured it would be a good idea to fix his water infiltration problem as well.
Following his call we sent our team to do a full inspection and recommend the installation of the WaterGuard interior foundation drain system and the SuperSump sump pump system. Once the installation was complete, our client’s basement was completely waterproofed.
Whenever we work on the waterproofing and encapsulation of a crawl space, we are happy to see how this space is transformed from an earthen place with moist air into a dry, clean and bright space that can be used for useful purposes. This adds more usable space to your home and increases its value. Not only can you use it to store your seasonal items, but the air becomes dry and of better quality because the CleanSpace vapor barrier membrane contains an antibacterial additive that prevents the formation and proliferation of bacteria and molds and blocks water vapor. Thus, the air that moves from your crawl space to the upper floors is healthy for your health. We are happy to have completed another crawl space encapsulation project in Sainte-Dorothée!
We have stabilized our client’s foundations permanently. Our support pile system has been proven as an effective permanent solution and our Push Pier support pillars can be installed from inside and outside and the finish will be clean and neat.
We have waterproofed our client’s basement in Sainte-Dorothée and installed the TripleSafe sump pump systems.
The TripleSafe offers 3 times more protection than a simple sump pump.
We have solved a foundation problem in a house in Vimont, Laval by installing push pier pillars. These pillars are the solution by excellence for homes and foundations that collapse.
We are happy to have installed the TripleSafe in Vimont, Laval. Sump pump systems get rids of water before it seeps into your and causes flooding and damage. All the water intercepted is evacuated far from the house. The TripleSafe system gives you three times more protection thanks to its three pumps. The first allows pumping water under normal conditions. The second embarks when the flow and/or the volume of water are too fast. The last is a pump that works thanks to a self-recharging battery. This pump will save your basement if a storm or other reason causes a power failure.
Mrs. R, a Montreal resident, was having water infiltration problems in her basement, and she needed to get this problem fixed ASAP, and for good, so she could reuse her basement fully, without being worried about any future problems.
Furthermore, her old sump pump wasn’t working properly and water was infiltrating into her basement, inside the wall bricks, and on the floors, and in order to fix this problem, our team has replaced the existing sump pump pit by our SuperSump, which is not only hermetically sealed to prevent humidity from going out but also has an alarm system that sounds if the pump stops working and the water level reaches the top.
In the case of this client, we later added as per the client's request an UltraSump battery backup system, which is a backup system that can discharge about 12,000 gallons on one discharge if the main pump ever stops working in cases such as failure, a circuit break or power outage.
This homeowner in Montreal had previously suffered from water infiltration problems in her basement, especially in the absence of a back-up system for her sump pump and a poorly sealed sump.
Our team has replaced it with the SuperSump sump pump system which is one of the best sump pump systems that come with an alarm system, a waterproof drain and a Zoeller pump.
The insulation helped solve many issues the client had, such as insulating the upper floors from the cold, making the crawl space clean and letting him use the crawl space as an additional storage room.
Mrs. Lucier from Plateaux –Mont Royal in Montreal noticed that there was a moisture problem causing bad smells in the house.
After much research on the internet, she found Basement systems Quebec and following her call we sent a team of Professionals to perform a complete encapsulation of the crawlspace.
The team installed a CleanSpace membrane which is designed to create an ultra-resistant barrier against moisture, preventing mold growth. This product is guaranteed for 25 years against tear and wear and the liner is a heavy 20-mil-thick material.
After the installation, the Crawl Space looked so bright and clean and our client was able to use her Crawl Space area.
