This Magog customer told us about his concerns about his house foundations. There was a very large crack in his poured concrete floor. This is often an indication of the slump of the floor. Another sign of sagging may be cracks in the drywall or buckling, stretching or tearing of the plaster walls. All the big cracks started with small cracks, so if they are big, it's time to repair them before an unfortunate accident happens. And who says crack, says risk of water infiltration. So, following the request of our client, we sent our specialist to perform a complete internal and external evaluation to recommend a permanent and effective solution that solves the problem and fills the customer's request.
Our specialist, therefore, recommended some work of piling to stabilize the foundations of this house. Thus, our team installed 9 steel support pillars PushPiers. The PushPier is one of our patented support products and the best of its kind on the market. We have also installed an outdoor French drain and the SentrySeal membrane which serves as protection against the moisture entering through the pores of the concrete. And finally, we have affixed SilverGlo insulation panels, which are panels that reflect the heat to your basement. These R-11 Thermal Value Panels save energy by minimizing heat loss and protect your SentrySeal waterproofing membrane.
We are happy to have solidified and sealed this basement of Magog and hope you will do the same if you see problems similar to this client.
