A wet crawl space might be dangerous for the house, for it might affect the whole structure of the place.
Also, mud floors are filled with water and transmit water vapors filled with moisture, bacteria, and mold. As the air flows upwards, the air in the crawl space goes to the upper floors of your home, causing you to breathe infected air.
We have encapsulated and stabilized this crawl space in Hemmingford, by installing our patented CleanSpace vapor barrier membrane. The CleanSpace membrane is composed of 7 layers of treated polyethylene in which an antibacterial additive is added. The membrane is finally treated with an ultra-violet additive in order to extend its resistance and its life span as long as possible. In addition, we installed our SmartJacks that are specially designed for crawl spaces. They support and stabilize your foundations and are adjustable to adapt to the movement of the ground.
Crawl space encapsulation allows this space to be healthier and more useful!
Mrs Emmanuele from Lacolle had an old sump pump that was always flooding during heavy rain, but she never really wanted to change it and invest in a new one until one day it has lost power and stopped working.
So she contacted us immediately after the accident, we have informed her about our products, and we suggested the installation of our SuperSump pump system.
The SuperSump pump is very powerful, offers reliability and high-volume pumping and has a built-in alarm alerts when water level rises too high.
We are happy to have been able to help our client to find a permanent solution for her problem.
If your foundation is disposed to to condensation or general sogginess such as this basement in Grenville-Sur-La Rouge, we recommend our vapor barrier liner to be installed on your basement walls with our waterproofing system.
The durable liner will work along with our waterproofing system by pushing water along the foundation down into the interior drainage system ‘the Waterguard’ instead of seeping onto the floor.
Water infiltration is a problem for many homeowners. Water can drive up under the foundation at the joints between the floor and the wall or through cracks in the walls as well. These situations are often due to a high water table, hydrostatic pressure, and the normal shrinkage of concrete.
This is what happened in this basement in Lasalle, and when we went to check up the area Mr. Neil informed us that it had been this way for years and he tried to fix it many times but it was all in vain.
We informed Mr. Neil then that the best thing to do is to waterproof the entire basement.
The waterproofing consists of the following:
An interior Drain called ‘The WaterGuard’ to capture wall and floor seepage before it reaches your basement floor; a ‘TripleSafe’ sump pump to pump the water out, and finally an ‘IceGuard’ accessory that prevents pipe freezing.
The TripleSafe sump pump system keeps your basement dry with triple the protection. Most sump pumps fail because of either a failed pump, a pump that can't handle high volumes of water or power failure. The TripleSafe assures protection from all three sump pump problems.
We have installed the TripleSafe pump in this house’s basement in Charlemagne, Qc!
This basement is now dry even in the most extreme conditions or power outages.
