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 repaired the basement slab that was sagging at this house in Pierrefonds. Symptoms can be clearly seen in the cracks separating between the top of the interior walls of the basement and floor upstairs. By installing our slab piers, we did not just stabilize the slab, but also we were able to close the existing cracks as you see in these 2 pictures.
Our clients from Sainte-Marthe-Sur-Le-Lac called us after noticing stair-shaped cracks around the exterior brick as well as having an uneven floor.
After their call, our specialists went to the site and gave them a free quote for the best foundation repair and reinforcement solutions.
We have suggested the installation of Steel rods, which are forced through a 1-inch hole in the wall of the basement and are connected to the earth anchor and wall anchor; a WallAnchor which is a discreet wall plate placed inside the wall of your basement and attached to the rod, and a SentrySeal membrane that protects your foundation walls from external moisture and backfilling.
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!
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.
