The family that lives in this beautiful mansion in Westmount continually suffered from problems caused by the crawl space under the house. Moisture, cold floors, musty smells and floors that squeak finally pushed the owners to call us in order to encapsulate this space under their house.
Our specialist Peter Romaniuk recommended to install the CleanSpace encapsulation membrane to cut moisture and reduce mold, as well as the wall panels Silverglo to insulate the exposed parts of the foundation wall. The difference is evident in the pictures you see here...
Ms. Berryman who lives in Brossard started to notice that cracks had been created in several places on the walls of the exterior foundation. In addition, she could also see cracks inside her house near the door frames and on the ceiling. She was starting to get worried about her house and wanted to have the foundation of her house repaired.So she decided to contact Systèmes Sous-sol Québec for a free estimate.
The solution for Ms. Berryman was to install hydraulic piles under the footing to straighten it. To do this, our experts excavated all along the foundation walls to reach the footing. And then they installed several hydraulic piles. This first makes it possible to straighten the foundation walls, possibly completely plug the foundation cracks and solidly stabilize the foundation so that it can no longer move.
Cold basement walls make your entire basement colder in the winter. The cold surface also creates condensation in the summer. Insulating your basement walls with the right material can help make your basement warmer and drier.
Those problems were occurring in our client’s basement in Montreal, and this is when she deceided to contact us!
Our team suggested the installation of 2 from our products: ThermalDry and Foamax.
Our thermalDry system is Stain resistant.Won't warp, bow or delaminate like wood products.
As for our Foamax, it really makes a big difference in the temperature of your walls, providing a comfortable basement and lowering heating costs.
Mr. Patry had a large crack in his concrete slab in the basement of his house that worried him. In addition to that, there were cracks in the shape of staircases on two walls of its foundation. He contacted Systèmes Sous-sol Québec to get a free estimate and find out about possible solutions to his problem.
Our specialist who went to the site to do the free inspection found that the crack in the concrete slab and those on the foundation walls were caused by the foundation sagging. With the movement and change of the soil under the foundation, the weight of the foundation was no longer supported so it began to sag.
We Added our Push Piers under the foundation to stabilize it permanently. As there were several obstacles outside, our experts laid the pillars for the interior of the house. They dug to reach the footing of the foundation to then insert the hydraulic pillars. They rest on a very solid layer of soil, which stabilizes the foundation once and for all. They even created a possibility of straightening the house to its original position.
With this solution, Mr. Patry will have nothing more to fear for his foundation.
