The problem: This Lachine client’s problem was that she had no protection and the humidity level in her crawl space was very high.
The solution: We installed a membrane called CleanSpace which acts as a vapor barrier and below it we installed a drainage membrane so that it redirects the water to the drain.
Problem: The client who resides in the town of Rosemère had a crack in her foundation and water entered during the period of snowmelt and when there was rain. She wanted to fix this problem, as it had been going on for a while and she had tried to fix it, but unfortunately it had not worked the way she wanted.
Solution: The solution for this project was to put our product called Flexispan, this product is made from polyurethane that we inject into the crack. We then cover the crack with a polyurethane-based coating to create a beautiful light gray finish to match the coating to the concrete. Finally, we dig a small hole in front of the place where the crack is found and which will have the drainage membrane, in the event that there is water that tries to pass through the Flexispan. However, it will be redirected to the sump pump.
Problem: This Rosemère customer wanted to change his sump pump to a more efficient one. There are often power losses where it remains so it needed one that could continue to operate during power outages.
Solution: For this project, the solution that was chosen was to install our TripleSafe sump pump. This is provided with two levels for two different flow rates. When the first level is reached, the second automatically engages. In addition, this pump is equipped with a battery that triggers instantly upon loss of current. This is why it was the best option for the customer, because for him it was undeniable to have a pump that would work, even when the power was out.
The problem: This customer had an uncovered sump pump and wanted one that would be more suitable for his basement.
The solution: We installed a new sump pump called the SuperSump, it has a tight cover, it will not rust and it can remove up to 8,300 liters of water per hour.
Too many people in Quebec suffer from water infiltration in their basement, but we have noticed that they always wait several years before realizing the problem and deciding to solve it.
At Systèmes Sous-sol Québec we are specialized in solving the problems of water infiltration from its main source, and we have succeeded in waterproofing numerous basements in Quebec.
In this house in Prevost, we have installed a complete waterproofing system, and eliminated water infiltration from its source!
We dug the ground and installed the WaterGuard interior drain in this perimeter. This allows all incoming water to be redirected to the pump no matter what level this water is coming from. All drainage was connected to the SmartSump pump system.
When you have a perimeter drainage system installed in your home, your sump pump is your main line of defense against a basement flood.
When a crawl space is wet or humid, it will support the growth of mold, mildew, and rot. As this mold damages the structural wood in your home, the structure can begin to sag.
This is why we needed to encapsulate this crawl space in Ste-Anne-De-Sorel, Qc.
We have installed a CleanSpace liner to lock out any moisture coming in, and our dehumidifier known as the SaniDry Sedona which is a self-draining system that eliminates the chore of emptying collection trays, while an air filter eliminates particles from the air as small as 2 microns!
