Trudeaux has been part of our team for a while now and since his first day, he has stood out through the quality of his work and his charismatic character. He started as an installer and quickly became a foreman. He takes care of one of the teams that will come to install your waterproofing, crawl space encapsulation or foundation repair system to make sure that of the quality and efficiency of the installation. Systèmes Sous-sol Québec is proud to have Trudeaux as part of the production team.
If your sump doesn't have a lid, something we see every day in basements across the nation, it will get clogged and dirty over time and either slow down or stop entirely.
What you will need to do is to have your sump inspected to see if it's time to repair or replace it.
That is exactly what our client in Clarenceville did last year and when our team went to inspect his pedestal pump, they told him that it needs to be changed.
The TripleSafe sump pump installed is very special since it has a three-pump system to adjust automatically and meet pumping requirements besides that, its battery-powered pump will protect the place against flooding during power outages.
In 2015, a client located in Baie-d'Urfé did business with us to install the TripleSafe sump pump system and to finish the basement with finishing products specially designed for basements.
Three years later, our satisfied customer contacted us again because she was now ready to carry out a crawl space insulation and encapsulation project.
Our specialist, therefore, recommended the installation of SilverGlo insulation panels, which are insulation panels made of graphite particles that increase the value of thermal resistance. This insulation is also covered with a radiant barrier to reflect and preserve the heat towards the interior.
The floor has been encapsulated with the CleanSpace vapor barrier membrane, which is a 7-layer expanded polyethylene coating containing an antibacterial additive to block the growth of mold. This membrane blocks the vapors of water that evaporates into the air and redirects them to a well. We are the experts in crawl space insulation and encapsulation and our products are the most effective for your basement space.
If, like this client, you want to solve your problem once and for all, do not hesitate to contact us!
The spring of 2019 was very difficult for the residents of Oka. Several houses were flooded, causing major damages to basements throughout the city. We have waterproofed several residences, including this one, to prevent underground floods that could reach the next thaw.
We have installed a WaterGuard interior drain perimeter that intercepts water seeping through the joint between the foundation wall and the floor. Then we installed a TripleSafe sump pump system that contains 3 pumps in an airtight coating. One of the sump pumps in this coating is a battery-backed emergency pump that will start during a power outage to protect your basement.
Our customer’s foundation in Lachute was curving, which is a serious problem and sign of failure in the basement foundation walls.
We have solved this problem, by installing PowerBrace galvanized steel beams and several smartJacks.
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. Zinc coated, the PowerBrace system resists erosion, reduces abrasion and makes beams non-toxic
As for the SmartJack Support Pillars , those are steel support systems used to stabilized and level the girders and floor joists in a crawl space.
In Addition they are super strong (support loads of more than 60,000 lbs.), and is the only solution that addresses problem soils.
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!
This Côte-Saint-Luc customer needed an assessment from our company for a mold-to-crawl problem. When you see traces of mold in the crawl space, this is a sign that you need to dehumidify the space efficiently and permanently. As the crawl space is a space built in a hole in the ground, the water pressurizes and infiltrates through the ground and pores of the concrete.
Our waterproofing solutions solve these problems at the source. The CleanSpace drainage mat and vapor barrier membrane are installed on the floor to prevent water vapor from escaping into the air. We install on the walls the SilverGlo insulation which is an insulation board composed of graphite particles and which is covered with a radiant barrier to preserve the heat inside. It is a product that saves you a lot of energy consumption. Finally, the SaniDry dehumidifier keeps the space at an optimal relative humidity level. It is a system that empties automatically through a water drain pipe.
The foundations of this crawl space at Wentworth were threatened by moisture that damaged organic foundations such as pillars and wooden beams. The wet spaces are a favorable place for the proliferation of molds and bacteria.
Water vapor and mold damage organic foundations and put your home at risk, without noticing the harmful effects they can also have on the quality of the air you breathe.
To solve the problem, we installed galvanized steel support pillars and joists that are not affected by moisture and bacteria. They stabilize the house structure once and for all.
We also installed the CleanSpace membrane that blocks water vapor so that the crawl space does not become wet than the acceptable and recommended rate.
Thus, the space is drier and healthier, the structure is protected and restored and the space becomes usable, which brings value to the house!
Very often, people suffer from water infiltration but wait several years before recognizing the problem and wanting to solve it.
Fortunately, Systèmes Sous-sol Québec is solving the problems of water infiltration at its source, because we are the experts in all that is underground.
We have easily solved the problem of water in this house, through the installation of a sump pump system. The choice of a system must be made correctly.
It is not enough to dig a hole and throw a pump. Among other things, the system must have an airtight cover so that infected water vapors do not come out of the system.
The pump must be installed on a raised support so that the sediments in the water do not diminish the performance of the pump.
In addition, the cover must serve as a floor drain that allows water to enter in the event of a plumbing leak, but must not allow the water vapor or water to exit through this hole.
Our system is very powerful and contains all these features that make SuperSump the best sump pump coating.
One of the citizens of Saint-Mathias-sur-Richelieu called us asking about our sump pumps since she learned from her friend that we have the best products in the market. Mrs. Dion needed a sump pump that does not fail, nor clogs especially during flood season.
Furthermore, our specialist recommended the installation of our SuperSump pump.
Our SuperSump is a complete sump pump unit that has a powerful 1/3 hop cast iron pump within a polyethylene superliner sump liner. It also resists clogging and can pump solids of 12.5 mm diameter.
Our customer who owns a software company in Saint-Etienne-de-Bolton was having problems with water infiltration in his basement that was affecting badly on his work and needed the interference of our company.
Our complete basement waterproofing system from our interior drain system 'The WaterGuard', to our SuperSump pump system, will block water vapor, traps leaks, and redirects and pumps that water away from your home.
We have transformed this crawl space in Mascouche into a very beautiful area.
The soil was very wet, mold and insects were growing. So we installed our CleanSpace membrane to insulate the house from the ground and our company’s SmartDrain that intercepts water infiltration caused by plumbing leaks.
This basement in Daveluyville suffered from water infiltration, and our client needed to sell this place as soon as possible, so he contacted us in order to solve these problems.
When our specialist went to do the inspection, he recommended a complete solution that would solve the water seepage issues once and for in order to sell the house more easily.
Our team installed 55 feet of WaterGuard interior drain. This piping system is specifically designed to effectively solve basement water problems without worrying about blockages caused by the soil under the floor. The WaterGuard intercepts the water at the perimeter of the basement and expels it discreetly and in a safe manner. It is a block-proof solution, a good alternative to other drainage systems that sit directly on the ground and often become clogged.
Another basement problem solved thanks to our products and full waterproofing service.
Our client from Daveluyville needed to find a solution for their basement leakage.
Water was infiltrating their basement so they got a company to help them waterproof the area, but the company the first used to fix the issue did not guarantee their products for a long period. Eventually, the problem reappeared.
Consequently, they found our number and called our company for a free inspection and we sent our specialist to recommend them the best waterproofing products in the market. As for our company, we have a 25 years warranty on this type of waterproofing system and it is transferable to the next owners if they ever want to sell.
We started by installing the WaterGuard, our interior French drain system, and we connected it to our TripleSafe sump pump system.
The TripleSafe system is the most reliable pump system in the world; it keeps your basement dry thanks to triple protection.
