Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Water infiltration through the exterior door of the basement in Saint-Basile-le-Grand, Qc
Our client, who lives in Saint-Basile-Le-Grand, had problems with water infiltration in his basement and called our company in order to fix this problem. We installed our waterproofing system from the WaterGuard drainage on the majority of the perimeter then our team also went with a TrenchDrain and a Drainage Matting. The TrenchDrain is able to collect surface water in front of doors and down stairs among others. Drainage Matting helps direct water to the WaterGuard.

This sump pump was not working properly.
Black mold on the walls
Water infiltration causes mold to grow and this will affect badly on the health of the place.
Beginning of the WaterGuard installation
Our system is installed on the foundation footing out of the mud and dirt and sits on top of stone bedding, adding another "clean" layer to prevent clogging.
Once installed, the WaterGuard drain is covered with concrete leveled to your floor.
The advantages of an interior drainage system
Accessibly to do the job, more affordable than an outside system, is installed in a day or two, and is easily serviceable year round.
