When a house is first constructed in areas like Montreal and Laval of QC, the builders dig a hole in dense virgin soil for the foundation. After the foundation is built, the loose soil that was dug out is backfilled around the foundation. This loose soil can easily allow water to pass through and seep into your basement. Through the years, this soil can also expand and put added pressure on your foundation, causing cracks. Systèmes Sous-sol Québec has a number of foundation underpinning solutions for all of your foundation repair needs in QC. They are compatible with most home designs and can be installed with no damage to gardens, steps, porches, walkways, or other landscaping.
We often get calls from homeowners who are hesitant to buy a concrete block home. This type of foundation does not have the best reputation and might have lots of problems.
It is for this reason that our team of engineers dedicated the time necessary to study this type of house and find the optimal solutions.
When our client Mr. Sébastien called us, exactly for this type of project, he saw our expertise on the subject and was able to trust us.
Considering the condition of the foundation, our team recommended a total of 7 PowerBraces. This product makes it possible to stabilize the foundation permanently, thanks to its system which allows it to be tightened more and more, to put the wall straight.
To complete a complete dry basement solution, Mr. Sébastien added a SuperSump pump. This pump can remove 8,300 liters of water per hour.
Settlement is the movement your home suffers when the soil below can no longer support the weight of your home due to many reasons such as drought, maturing trees and else.
At Systèmes Sous-sol Québec, we have the solutions for foundation settlement.
In this place in Kirkland, we have stabilized a failed foundation by installing 9 support piles.
Support pillars are the best option when earth conditions are unknown. They make it possible to raise the foundation towards its initial position, to minimize the disturbances during the installation which is done quickly, and that solves the problem once and for all.
When you see a crack on your foundation, it may be a sign that the foundation wall is moving. When there is movement at ground level, there is a risk of subsidence that can harm your home.
The best solution is to install a permanent solution as we did in this job in Kirkland.
The PushPier pillar is a patented product and it features an outer sleeve that reinforces the pillar device directly under the support which is the most critical place.
It strengthens this area and prevents twisting, distortion, and rotation that is commonly observed in other support pillar devices.
Systèmes Sous-sol Québec uses the Supportworks push pier system to transfer the weight of your home through the piers from unstable soil to competent soil or bedrock.
Installation of galvanized steel foundation push piers can be done quickly all year round without the use of heavy equipment.
Installation usually takes about a day, and it can be accomplished with minimal damage to your yard's landscaping.
The push pier system can stabilize settled foundations and can even lift the structure back to its original position, making it a powerful and long-lasting solution for your home. Learn more about foundation push piers.
For lighter structures, porches, patios, and other structures that are sagging and showing fatigue, Systèmes Sous-sol Québec installs the Supportworks line of Helical Pier Systems.
Helical piers are mechanically screwed into the soil to assure permanent stabilization. They can be used as an alternative to the push pier system in some situations and are commonly used in new construction.
Helical piers are usually installed with small construction equipment, but can be installed with hand equipment in tight spaces. The shaft has a high resistance to bending and the helical piers offer reduced mess and excavation in and around the home. More information about helical piers systems for foundations.
Foundation soil in areas like Montreal shifts and settles when alternating between shrinking from drying out and swelling from moisture. This can result in sinking columns and sagging crawl space beams, which can cause your crawl space to settle.
Improperly-spaced beams can also become overloaded and start to sag, causing the floor boards to sag as well. Our SmartJack® Crawl Space Stabilizer has rugged steel support beams specifically designed to stabilize your crawl space and protect your home. They can support a vertical load of more than 60,000 pounds and are able to level existing beams and floor joints. More information about support systems for crawl spaces.
Cracking and bowing in the foundation walls of a house is a common problem. It most often occurs as the lateral pressure from the soil around the foundation exceeds the home's load-bearing capacity. A properly installed foundation wall anchoring system in Quebec can restore and reinforce the structural integrity of a building.
Foundation wall anchors provide a good alternative to removing and rebuilding foundation walls or using other wall bracing systems, and they can be installed with minimal landscaping disruption. More information about foundation wall anchors.
