Crawl Space Repair Photo Album: Waterproofing of crawl spaces in Howick, Qc
Our client in Howick needed to sell this place ASAP, so he contacted us in order to solve those problems. First, a pump specially designed for crawl spaces was installed: the SmartSump. This pump keeps the crawl space dry on the cutting edge of technology. Next, we encapsulated the space with the CleanSpace product, which helps make the space clean, usable and cuts moisture. Under this membrane, we have added Drainage Matting, to facilitate the redirection of water to the pump.
Crawl space in a bad condition
Existing moisture will cause rot, mold, energy loss, and attracts pests.
Problems coming from the crawl space
What’s worse is mold releases airborne spores that eventually make their way upstairs. Mold in your crawl space isn’t good for your health or your property value.
Dust Mites & Pests
Dust mites thrive in humid environments, so they love homes with a dirt crawl space underneath. Dust mite droppings float in the air and can trigger allergies and asthma.
Water in the crawl space
You can see puddles of water all over the place

Vapor barrier membrane
To prevent water vapor from escaping into the air and humidifying the basement, we install the CleanSpace membrane. It is thick and ultraresistant.
