    Customer Testimonial

              I contacted Systemes Sous-sol in April/2021 via the internet and quickly received a reply from their office in Laval through which I booked a free inspection and estimate with Jerry Evangelatos, System Design Specialist for April 5th, 2021. Mr. Evangelatos drove to Wakefield, Quebec and sat down with me to fully explain the "Dry basement solution". His presentation was clear and precise and provided full details of the systems, the cost, the time for the work. the lifetime guarantee and the preparations required. I had read the complete booklet sent to me earlier but Jerry showed me an additional video of the work to be done and with all of this information. I was able to make a decision immediately after I fully understood this system. He was able to give me the date of April 29 for the installation. Later, I received a call from Valerie, who was pleasant, professional and enthusiastic and who offered me an earlier date. After confirmation with my plumber, I was able to accept this new appointment. On Tuesday, April 19th, two company employees arrived, having called me to inform me when they could get here. I was very impressed with the friendliness and professional manner of Felix, who was obviously perfect bilingual, very competent and very comfortable with people. When he and his fellow Worker, Quan, arrived, they spent some time with me in the basement going over the work that would be done, the estimated time it would take and offered to respond to any questions. Felix reviewed the contract I had signed with Jerry and then set about their work. I have never seen two men so motivated, so knowledgeable and so willing to do this job as efficiently and carefully as possible. They were both respectful of me and my home and did their work with as little disruption as possible. They worked as a team and obviously knew what needed to be done and how the best to do it. Felix kept me informed with regard to their progress and always asked whenever he needed to use an indoor plug or whatever. I have already spoken to friends and neighbors about the quality of the workmanship and the integrity that both Felix and Quan demonstrated throughout the 3 days here in my home. They worked together tirelessly and rarely if ever stopped for breaks. Felix was extremely professional and knowledgeable and though, obviously in charge, treated his coworker with respect at all times. Quan worked comfortably alongside Felix, and both of them worked with amazing strength and speed and wasted no time in bringing the job to completion in a timely manner. I have never been so impressed by two young men who are obviously both loyal employees, promote their products with confidence and respect and are wonderful ambassadors for your company and worthy of my respect and admiration. I compliment the entire company on its successful completion of this contract. Sincerely,
    Sally S.

    Customer Testimonial

              From start to finish, the whole installation process was impeccable. The first inspection of my needs by a sales representative gave me answers to every question that previous companies had not been able to address. At that point, I was already sold but it only got better. My request to change the installation date was honoured with grace and generosity (I was surprised to have an earlier date, which was welcome). During the 2 days of installation, the technicians were communicative, well informed, efficient, and most of all, clean (they worked in the dirt, yet the results were nothing but "hospital white" and clean!) Within a few hours, the atmosphere in the crawl space could accommodate all of my storage needs without worry of mold or decay. Truly, I couldn't be happier and would choose 11 stars if I could.

    Waterproofing a wet basement in South Lancaster, QC

    Here is another wet basement that has been waterproofed in South Lancaster.

    When our client Joy found our website, she knew that we can fix her basement problems, without taking too much time.

    So we installed a complete waterproofing system including 25 feet of WaterGuard interior drain to intercept water coming in, a TripleSafe sump pump system with three pump system for more protection, and finally our SaniDry Sedona dehumidification system which is the best in the market.

    The crawl space was so terrible, all the floors were wet and contaminated water had been accumulating throughout all the year, allowing all the bacteria and mold to grow in the place.

    Our specialist Sam went to Howick to give this advice and make this submission.

    He recommended the installation of our CleanSpace crawl space waterproofing membrane and the SmartSump pump system to pump all the water out.

    PROBLEM

    Our client Mr. Grant had wanted to sell his house a while ago. He found that he was not getting exactly the offers he expected. When he received the report that one of the potential clients had made with an inspector, he saw that what most affected the amount was the disturbing state of the crawl space. Indeed, the amount of water that infiltrated on a frequent basis and the materials left with mold cooled many buyers, with a good reason.

    SOLUTION

    Thanks to our free and complete quote, the customer immediately had their questions answered. He now had a plan of action to finally sell his house, at the desired value. Given the state of the crawl space, our team went there with a SmartSump pump, to keep the crawl space dry. Then we encapsulated the space with our CleanSpace and Drainage Matting. The water can now be redirected to the pump. Homeowners can now enjoy a dry space.

    Having a house by the water is nice. But when water and water vapors affect the humidity of the house, it is less pleasant. For this reason, this owner has contacted us so we can meet him with one of our certified specialists in basement waterproofing and crawl space encapsulation. So we sent Jerry who has been working with us for a long time. Jerry noticed that there was no damage and that it would be enough to encapsulate this void.

    Our foreman Jonathan and his team began by removing all the debris from the crawlspace. Then, they installed a drainage mat and encapsulated the vacuum with the CleanSpace vapors barrier membrane. This product is the most effective on the market. It is composed of 7 layers and is therefore extremely resistant. An antibacterial additive is injected in to block the growth of mold. This product is specially designed for the basement environment and we are very proud of it. This client can now use the crawl space for useful purposes.

    The SuperSump is one of the best sump pump systems you can have at home. This system contains the most reliable pump, the WaterWatch alarm system and a patented waterproofed cover. The SupeSump is clean and nothing can infiltrate it. You can store goods on top without breaking it, saving you space. The Zoeller pump inside can drain 2650 gallons of water per hour. The alarm system sounds when the water level rises higher than normal so that you have time to react to this risk before damage occurs. The ultra-resistant polyethylene coating contains 96 holes that allow water that travels through the soil to be intercepted. Finally, the waterproof cover allows the water to be captured without the vapors emerge and humidify the space.

    Mr. Rees has lived in his house for 3 years. He noticed that there was mold in his crawl space and that there was an unpleasant smell in the house. He contacted Systèmes Sous-sol Québec to fix the situation quickly so that it would not get worse.

     Once the free inspection was completed by our specialist, he found the following issues:

     - Water infiltration on the floor of the crawl space

     - Pump not sufficient to remove water from the crawl space

     - Very humid crawl space

     - Mold on wood and rusty pipes in the crawl space.

     

    What our experts did? They removed all the debris that were in the crawl space, installed our SmartSump sump pump, placed our membrane on the ground that allows water to drain on the ground surface to the sump pump, installed our liner Cleanspace over the membrane and then connected our Sanidry dehumidifier.

     

    With all of these elements, mold growth is eliminated and Mr Rees' crawl space is dry and clean! The foul odor will thus disappear and he will be able to find the comfort in his home.

    This crawl space in Baie-D’urfe got flooded during spring time and there was presence of mold that developed everywhere.

    Water and moisture was damaging the foundation and the concrete of the place.

    We sent our specialist Jerry to perform a full inspection and recommend the best solution.

    We started by decontaminating the entire crawl space to eliminate mold and fungi.

    And since encapsulation will allow the crawl space to be protected at all times, our team encapsulated the crawl space with our CleanSpace vapor barrier membrane which is a membrane that insulates the house from the earth. And have also added the SilverGlo that sheds water and will not support mold growth or provide a home for pests.

    And finally, we stabilized the foundations with our SmartJacks galvanized steel support beams. These beams support the joists and will be highly resistant to the hostile environment of the crawl space.

    Mr. Guilbert was suffering from a problem of flooding in his basement, and the sump pump that was installed was not efficient and and allowed all the water to come in.

    He therefore contacted Systèmes Sous-sol Québec in order to install a new high-performing and reliable sump pump system.

    We therefore suggested the installation of our TripleSafe sump pump system. It is the most reliable and efficient pump thanks to its triple protection; 2 Zoellers pumps and 1 battery pump in case of power failure. Next, we laid an exterior discharge line to eject the water away from the foundation. And then we connected our IceGuard vent system to the exterior discharge line. It allows water to escape if the pipes freeze or become blocked for any reason.

     

    With this basement waterproofing solution, Mr. Guilbert will have nothing to fear for next spring and even in all seasons!

    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!

    SmartJacks supports are the best solution to stabilize crawl spaces. These are galvanized steel support devices that solve the problem of joists and posts that are sagging and weakening.

    SmartJacks supports effectively spread the weight of the house on the competent ground. So we installed this solution with our Deux-Montagnes customers who had floor problems.

    The SmartJack system is adjustable, so you can tighten it periodically to bring the floor above the crawl space to its original level to eliminate twists and adjust the leveling of the floor.

Mr. Billy knew that he needed to do something about this before the situation got worse, so once they found our company they called us for a free inspection.

    Our team went quickly to evaluate the situation, and we concluded that the foundation was settling and recommended installing Helical Piers. With a plan set, our team came out to the home to start the project.

    Helical Piers were installed inside the crawl space. Once the soil was removed from the areas where the piers were being installed, heavy-duty foundation brackets were positioned below the footing.

    Ms. Lauzé had problems with water infiltration in her basement that had entered through the joint between the footing and the foundation walls. This had created mold and completely damaged her floor.

    The solution

    Install a WaterGuard interior foundation drain all along the foundation walls. The WaterGuard sits directly on the footing and collects water from the joint and walls to direct it to the existing sump pump system. Once installed, it is covered with concrete, ready for the installation of the floor and the bottom of the drywall, services that Basement Systems can also offer Everlast and ThermalDry.

    Basements are built below grade; this is why they tend to suffer from water seepage. You may notice moist basement walls from time to time, water puddles here and there, or worst-case scenario flooding during the rainy season.

    Humid, damp, or downright wet basements are bad for the entire house’s health and can result in mold and mildew growth, rotted wood, and damage to stored items.

    One of our client’s basement in Montreal East was undergoing major water infiltrations around the foundation and contacted us asking about our free inspection and quote.

    We sent one of our specialists who recommended the installation of an interior drain system on the foundation footing as well as a vapor barrier membrane and a SuperSump sump pump system.

    This client was worried about her sump pump because she did not feel that the system in place would save the basement in the case of a flood or water infiltrations. She contacted us because she was interested in our patented systems. When our specialist went to her home, he recommended the TripleSafe system which contains 3 pumps in a single hermetic coating. The first pump operates under normal conditions. The second pump starts if there is a problem with the first pump or if the flow and volume of water are too big and fast for the first one. So during a heavy rain, you are protected by two pumps. If this bad weather also brings a power failure, a pump that does not run on a battery will not protect you. This is why the UltraSump pump is a necessity for the worried owners out there. This third pump is powered by a rechargeable battery and the SmartWatch alarm alerts you when the emergency battery is running. This system is the best on the market and nothing is comparable to it. Finally, the hermetic coating serves as a floor drain while blocking the water vapor that would like to escape.

     Our client was very pleased with the installation and the peace of mind that the TripleSafe brings her.

    A wet crawl space is unhealthy since it leads to a range of health and safety problems in your home. These can include mold growth, pest invasions and even rotted floor joists.

    The best way to avoid the headaches caused by these problems is to encapsulate the area as we did here in Sainte-Anne-des-Lacs.

    First we installed the CleanSpace membrane which is an ultra-resistant coating specially made for crawl spaces. Then we installed a SuperSump pump with very high pumping volumes, for freezing line protection we installed our IceGuard accessory, and finally to dry and purify the air, we installed our SaniDry XP air dehumidification system.

    The block foundation walls had staircase-like cracks in a few places and then the bottom of one of the walls started to slope slightly inward into the basement. It was actually signs of sagging foundations. He contacted Systèmes Sous-sol Québec to have a reliable and above all permanent solution!

    The solution

    The installation of our PowerBrace steel beams. They stabilize foundation walls and can be tightened over time to straighten sloping walls. No need to excavate with this solution and the beams are coated with zinc so it will not rust.

    With this solution, Mr. Moreau will be able to have the peace of mind as his foundation walls got stabilized once and for all.

    Crawl Space insulation in Austin, Qc

    These are before and after pictures of a crawl space in Austin Qc, that had a bad moisture problem which made the floor rotten and getting destroyed.

    Our client wanted to replace the floor at first, but once he contacted our company we went for our free inspection and informed him that his problem can be fixed easily.

    So we suggested the installation of our CleanSpace vapor barrier, that will slows or prevents the evaporation of ground moisture into the crawl space air.

    Made of a 20-mil 7-ply sandwich of high and low-density polyethylene with polyester-cord reinforcement, the liner is treated with an antimicrobial finish that protects against mold and mildew growth on or under the CleanSpace liner.

    Replacing an old sump with our SuperSump pump system in East Hereford, Qc

    Having an open sump is one of the problems that will cause a high level of humidity in a basement.

    This sump in East Hereford was not doing its job since at each great rain the water ended above the slab of this basement.

    We have replaced this old pump with our SuperSump pump and this basement is now completely waterproofed!

    This pump has a hermetically closed system (no moisture that emerges), which installs with a floor drain and an alarm system.
