Yury is one of our foremen and is an integral part of our team, helping to bring peace of mind to customers on a daily basis.
His job includes several installation projects, including digging out trenches, installing sump pumps, repairing and stabilizing foundations, repairing foundation cracks and many other tasks.
Yury likes when the work is completely up to the client specifications, and as such making the clients happy.
In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his family.
Our client from Brownsburg-Chatham informed us that she was having problems in her basement since the day she moved. Actually, the cracks she had in the foundation were allowing water to infiltrate causing too much moisture and mold in the place.
We have solved her problems by installing a SuperSump sump pump system to intercept all water seepage, push it away from her house, and prevent any escape from water vapor and aggravation of molds.
The foundation walls in this house in Verdun region was damaged because of a constant infiltration of water in the crawl space. We tore off those walls and installed steel columns (Smart-Jack) after building cement bases underneath to make the foundation stronger.
In addition, since it was impossible to install a French drain in the area, we have installed our internal drain ‘the SmartPump, sump pump drain system to solve the problem of water infiltration once and for all.
Having discovered our company on Facebook, this customer living in Saint-Lambert area contacted us to tell us about his concerns about humidity and support system in his crawl space. Indeed, the air in the area was very heavy and cold. In addition, the support pillars were not strong enough because they did not support the floor of the upper floor properly, which caused it to sag. These problems are very dangerous for the health of the home and the safety of the family living there.
For example, we sent one of our specialists who recommended the installation of the following products: SilverGlo insulation panels, 12 SmartJack support pillars, WaterGuard interior foundation drain, SuperSump sump pump system, freeze protection IceGuard Discharge Line, LawnScape Discharge Line Discharge Mouth.
With these products, the water can no longer infiltrate the crawl space and affect the air by releasing water vapor, because the water is intercepted by the internal drain and discharged by the sump pump. The water vapor is blocked by the SilverGlo insulation and the crawl space roof is now more than solid thanks to the SmartJacks
Our team has waterproofed this house in Sainte-Rose.
We have first sealed the wall cracks with polyurethane and FlexiSpan injection. Then, our team dug a trench all around the perimeter of the walls to install the WaterGuard interior drain that intercepts water from the floor and walls. A TrenchDrain has also been installed to intercept water coming through doors and stairs.
To evacuate the water in the drain, we installed a SuperSump sump pump system combined with an UltraSump booster pump system. So there is no risk that the basement will be flooded during storms that cause power outages because the UltraSump pump will start automatically and the alarm will indicate that this pump is running.
When the Crawl Space is not encapsulated, the cold, moist air from the floor spreads around the house, transferring all the bad odors that are unpleasant for locals.
After periods of heavy rain or snow, groundwater can seep into the crawl space from the dirt floor, and ruin the entire area!
But thanks to our products, this crawl space in Otterburn Park had been transformed from a damp place into a dry clean area.
We have installed our products consisting of a CleanSpace vapor barrier that keeps away odors and allergenic mold spores, to a SmartDrain to provide all the protection you need from leaks and floods, and finally, a SaniDry dehumidifier that eliminates damp, musty odors by drying and filtering the air.
We have completely encapsulated this crawl space by installing our CleanSpace Drain Mat under our CleanSpace Anti-mold Steam Membrane. Then we installed an UltraSump booster pump that runs on battery power during power outages. Subsequently, we solidified the crawl space structure by installing 9 SmartJack pillars and 24 PowerBrace support beams. To finalize it all, we added IceGuard and LawnScape accessories to the dump line to provide extra safety against flooding.
When a concrete block foundation wall begins to tilt or recline, the problem must be addressed quickly before the structure and security of the home is undermined.
To solve the problem of this weakening foundation wall, we installed our CarbonArmor wall reinforcement system that stabilizes the foundations permanently.
CarbonArmor uses fiber-reinforced polymers that are ten times stronger than steel, yet flexible enough to match the contour of your basement wall. It is a fast, non-invasive, and ideal solution for quickly stabilizing arched and sloped walls.
It is an interior system, so it does not disturb the house and does not damage the lawn or landscaping. It is also easy to paint or camouflage when finishing the basement, making it a discreet and fast solution.
This crawl space in Saint-Hippolyte was not insulated and there was a lot of water leakage and humidity in the area that was affecting the wooden support beams and putting them in threat of getting ruined.
When we went to check this area, our specialist Michel, therefore, recommended a complete solution to waterproof, isolate, encapsulate and solidify this crawl space which was in bad condition.
As a start, we have installed the SmartSump sump pump system and a SmartDrain to collect run-off water at this location and evacuate to the sump pump.
We insulated the walls with SilverGlo insulation made of graphite particles that reflect heat inwards as for the floor with TerraBlock panels to block water vapor.
Finally, we encapsulated the crawl space with the CleanSpace membrane which a vapor barrier and contains an antibacterial additive that prevents the proliferation of bacteria and molds. To provide additional support to the foundation, we installed a galvanized steel SmartJacks support pillar to prevent it from rusting or oxidation.
Our customers were having problems with water infiltration in their basement and needed the interference of our company.
Our complete basement waterproofing system blocks water vapor, traps leaks, and redirects and pumps that water away from your home. We installed such a system at this Saint-Hyacinthe client.
There is only once cause of all the problems in crawl spaces, which is relative humidity.
When humidity is high it causes mold to grow, and this affects airflow throughout your home and moves the spores in the void to the upper floors of your home.
This is why we needed to encapsulate the crawl space of this customer in Mont-Tremblant.
Wall cracks are very common in concrete foundation walls. To solve the problem, you need a solution that can adapt to future wall movements, because products that become rigid will crack again or lose their adhesion to concrete. This process will start again as long as the problem is not resolved with the right solution. The FlexiSpan solution seals the crack and provides a second repair strategy in the event that the sealant fails. FlexiSpan Sealant is a rubber-like liquid that allows the material to adapt to the movement of the crack. It is flexible and will not peel off concrete. It blocks water permanently.
One of our customers in Sorel-Tracy contacted us to do a foundation repair work at his home. Indeed, its foundation walls were bending, which is often a sign of failure that can be caused by various geotechnical and structural factors. To solve this problem, we installed the PowerBrace galvanized steel beams. The beams form a system designed specifically to support the walls of failed foundations and to straighten the walls to their original position over time. The PowerBrace Adjustment System is patented, which proves that it can actually improve the condition of the wall in the long run. Zinc coated, the PowerBrace system resists erosion, reduces abrasion and makes beams non-toxic. Their defined appearance and the galvanized steel covering make the beams less unpleasant to the eye because they will not be attacked by rust. Our system is installed by professionals who will ensure that the connections are made correctly and that the joint reinforcement system distributes the load equitably I a way not to damage your floor! Our patented system stands out from the others and we are very happy to have had the chance to install it at our customer’s place to solve his problem once and for all!
We isolated from this foundation from the outside, since it was under a lot of pressure from the earth because of the movement of soil, water, and moisture.
The SentrySeal system and SilverGlo are a combination of products that we use to protect the foundation by isolating it from moisture and excessive heat transfer.
The SentrySeal waterproof membrane is 60 mils thick and is specifically designed to be a complete and consistent barrier to block water vapor.
The SilverGlo insulation is waterproof and offers a thermal resistance value of R-11 thanks to the graphite particles infused into the insulation. In addition, the reflective barrier that covers this insulation allows the heat to be reflected and stored inside to reduce the cost of heating humid air.
