    Customer Testimonial

              After ten years living in his home, Nick I. from St. Leonard, Quebec noticed that the basement started to leak, probably because of an extension that was built without proper drainage. He called a few companies in the area for an estimate, but only Basement Systems Quebec offered a complete solution that made sense to him for a number of reasons. First it wouldn't require digging out the foundation from the outside or a lot of excavation from the inside. Installing the exclusive WaterGuard system offered by the company would only require jack hammering a six inch trench along the interior perimeter of the basement walls. The system was also more affordable, but it was the sump pump system with alarm and a battery backup, and the Transferable Lifetime Warranty offered by the company that really convinced Nick that he had the right company and the right products for the job. "Overall we are very satisfied. If someone would come to me and ask me for my advice, without hesitation I would strongly recommend Basement Systems Quebec, because their problems would be solved, they could be assured that there wouldn't be any more water coming into their house, and the service that they would provide would be very good, and they could have the confidence that their are reliable." - explains Nick. "We paid less than we would have paid if we went with another supplier but the work was actually done well and we haven't had a problem ever since. "

    Our clients in Gatineau were suffering from water infiltration problems in their home's basement which caused humidity in the area and has also lead to severe coldness in the basement that has reached the whole house as well.

    As you can see in the first picture, the water has penetrated the floors and structural paint damages have occurred on the walls.

    Furthermore, our professionals have installed a WaterGuard system, our SuperSump sump pump, as well as our SaniDry and IceGuard systems and finished it with the EverLast wall restoration systems.

    Our clients are now very happy since they did not face any humidity problems again and can enjoy their new warm, dry and beautiful basement.

    Because the crawl space is a below-grade space under the house, you might think it’s normal to have a moisty crawl space. After all, the ground gets wet and dries throughout the seasons and with weather patterns event.

    So when our client who owns a house in Hemmingford started suffering from moisture in her house, she contacted us asking for some recommendations.

    We went to her house, and encapsulated her crawl space by installing our most efficient products in the market: A Cleanspace Liner to block water vapor, a SmartDrain to collect water seepage which is designed specifically for crawl spaces and a Sanidry Cx to keep the air dry.

    The SaniDry Cx dehumidifier is a powerful system that is appropriate for the basement and crawl space environment alike, and is able to remove up to 109 Pints of water daily.

    Dry air in a crawl space is important for several reasons. The humidity is bad for the respiratory health of people who live in the house because the moist air aggravates the symptoms of asthma and allergies. Dry air offers better air quality and a more comfortable environment.

    If you dry the air in the crawl space, the air rises throughout the house and makes it dry. In addition, moist air is expensive to cool. A SaniDry dehumidifier like the one we have installed at this customer's house allows you to dry and lighten the air in the crawl space and therefore throughout the house. Therefore it will cost you less to heat or cool.

    The SaniDry dehumidifier is rated EnergyStar.

    Insulated and encapsulated crawl space in Baie-d'Urfé

    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!

    Water was seeping into our client’s basement during freeze and thaw cycles.

    The land now is sloping towards the wall. And in winter there are puddles caused by the thaw near the foundations.

    We went to this place after scheduling a free inspection day and solved our customer’s problem.

    As a start, we installed our WaterGuard Indoor Drainage System. The WaterGuard Internal Drain is installed at the joint between the wall and the footing of the foundation and is covered with concrete to blend into the decor.

    Then our SuperSump pump system is connected to the WaterGuard. The SuperSump system is a sump pump liner that is unobtrusive and not bulky. You can put your things on it without being afraid that something will fall in it.

    Once completed, we have installed the ThermalDry floor system which is an inorganic mat resistant to water and moisture.

    The encapsulation of your crawl space is a wise renovation choice for the whole house.
    If you feel the walls are cold, the air is humid and you see water seepage, our waterproofing specialists can help you solve these problems.

    That's what we did for one of our clients in Brownsburg-Chatam. Our team recommended a complete solution including the following: an interior drain system installed on the footing of the foundation. This system intercepts water in the soil and foundation and redirects water to a sump pump in the SuperSump liner.

    We have eliminated the traces of mold thanks to MoldX which is a product that is a neutralizer.

    The walls have been coated with the CleanSpace vapor barrier membrane, which blocks water vapor and redirects it to the drain.

    Finally, to keep the humidity level at 55% or lower, we have installed our SaniDry CX dehumidifier and air purifier that keeps the air dry and the environment healthy.

    This space can now be conveniently and safely used. We are happy to have been able to carry out this project!

    Whatever is in your basement air is in your house and affecting you, whether you spend much time in the basement or not. If there is high humidity downstairs, there is higher humidity upstairs than there would be otherwise. 

    If there is mold in the basement, there are mold spores upstairs. If there are damp odors downstairs, you get the idea!

    Those are the reasons why waterproofing the basement is very important, for your health as well as the house’s state as well.

    The interior drain ‘The WaterGuard’ system will capture wall and floor seepage before it reaches your basement floor.

    As for our Supersump pump system, it is considered one of the best pumps in the market; it has an airtight lid on it to prevent water from evaporating out of the sump hole into your basement, to stop stuff from falling in, that can clog the pump or switch, and to quiet the system.

    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

    Mrs. R, a Montreal resident, was having water infiltration problems in her basement, and she needed to get this problem fixed ASAP, and for good, so she could reuse her basement fully, without being worried about any future problems.

    Furthermore, her old sump pump wasn’t working properly and water was infiltrating into her basement, inside the wall bricks, and on the floors, and in order to fix this problem, our team has replaced the existing sump pump pit by our SuperSump, which is not only hermetically sealed to prevent humidity from going out but also has an alarm system that sounds if the pump stops working and the water level reaches the top.

    In the case of this client, we later added as per the client's request an UltraSump battery backup system, which is a backup system that can discharge about 12,000 gallons on one discharge if the main pump ever stops working in cases such as failure, a circuit break or power outage.

    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.

    This client contacted us the first time in 2013 to request a bid to waterproof his basement which was suffering from water infiltration. Having decided that he was in no hurry to carry out the work, he dropped the project but contacted us again in 2019 to resume the project, as the problems worsened.

    Our team installed a WaterGuard interior drain perimeter that intercepts water that seeps into the foundation, floor, and walls. This internal drain is connected to a sump pump system to evacuate water away from home.

    Once the drain was installed around the foundation, our team covered the walls with the CleanSpace vapor barrier membrane that blocks the water vapor so that it does not wick the space. This membrane also redirects the infiltrations of water if there are some towards the drain. The vapor barrier prevents mold and bloom from appearing and proliferating.

    When the wall begins to tilt in the middle, but have not yet begun to slide inward at the base or tilt inward at the top, Carbon Fiber strips are the best solutions.

    This was our client’s problem that lives in Morin-Heights.

    When the tapes are installed, the resistance that the carbon fiber tapes exert makes it possible to prevent the wall from flexing again.

    Encapsulation of the crawl space of a daycare center in Saint-Jérôme

    The management of Saint-Jerome day care center knew that the health and the quality of the air in their place need to be perfect. Since the place is mainly filled with babies and kids, it will be very bad if mold and bacteria spread in that place.

    We have sent our specialist Jorge to check the entire place and examine the crawl space and after locating the problem he recommended many solutions for all the problems.

    As a start, the debris has been removed by the Mold-X2. Mold-X2 is a very strong mold decontamination product that we apply to all wood and masonry.

    Then we installed the SmartSump sump pump system which is our smallest system specifically designed to be installed in crawl spaces.

    Next step was installing the CleanSpace membrane, which is a vapor barrier that blocks water infiltrations and vapors to redirect them to the interior drainage system.

    And finally and in order to dehumidify the place, the SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier was inserted. This product is the most efficient direct flow system and is also very energy efficient (EnergyStar).
