Moisture is very often damaging to a home and will cause unpleasant odors, and can also attack the wood and thus create mold.
Mr. Gilles from Anjou started having those problems in his house and contacted us in order to help him find the best solution with the minimum cost.
Our technicians led by foreman Petru then proceeded to install a CleanSpace membrane in order to stop water vapor from flowing up the soil and through the walls, and a SmartSump pump system that is equipped with a cast-iron Zoeller sump pump, a reliable liner, a sump alarm, and an optional battery backup sump pump, it's exactly what you need to ensure a dry crawl space all the time!
To finish the basement without waterproofing it would have been a bad idea since the risk would have always been present and the water would have infiltrated again and ruined the place.
Those are the reasons why we recommend Mrs. Vanessa who lives in Anjou, to do waterproofing work in her new house that was having water seepage through the floor joists under the stairs, into a cold room and the nearby corridor
At the start, we installed the WaterGuard drain under the perimeter of the affected regions. This drain is specially designed to drain the water flowing from the walls, the wall-to-floor, and under-floor joints and redirects it to the pump.
And then we installed The TripleSafe sump pump which is the most efficient pump on the market with 3 existing pumps for more safety.
Finally, we completed this system by installing the IceGuard accessories and LawnScape. The first allows the water to drain even if the pipe freezes in winter and the second lets the water out of the foundation by hiding itself in the grass.

You know there is a problem in your crawl space when the floors of your home remain very cold even with the existing heating system; bills are going high and unpleasant odors are coming from the crawl space.
So when the crawl space is not encapsulated, the cold, moist air from the floor spreads around the house, transferring all the bad odors through the entire place.
Mr. Gilles from Anjou, realized that there are some issues in his place due to the mentioned signs, so he started searching on the internet to find out the causes of such problems, and he knew then that he needed to encapsulate his crawl space.
As he started looking for different companies that could solve his problem, he found Systèmes Sous-sol Québec, and called us right away to provide him an idea about our products and all of the implementation process.

Following our inspection and Mr. Gilles agreed on our quote and we started the implementation phase that took only few days of work.
Our technicians led by foreman Petru then proceeded to install a CleanSpace membrane in order to stop water vapor from flowing up the soil and through the walls, and a SmartSump pump system that is equipped with a cast-iron Zoeller sump pump, a reliable liner, a sump alarm, and an optional battery backup sump pump.

Mrs. Vanessa wanted to buy her grandmother house in Anjou, but she had noticed that her grandma’s basement had water seepage. So she contacted us in November 2017 to get help with the renovation project.
At start she was confused and did not know whether she needed to destroy the entire basement interior and remake it again or not.
We sent our specialist Michael Costello to check the place and offer her the proper advices .He took the time to explain the importance of basement waterproofing and demonstrating how to deal with this problem at its source, and she understood well how water can seep and what are the best solutions to finish the basement.
So we started by installing WaterGuard drain under the perimeter of the affected regions. This drain is specially designed to drain the water flowing from the walls, the wall-to-floor and under-floor joints and redirects it to the pump.
Then we installed the TripleSafe sump pump that contains three pumps: the first operates during normal conditions, the second embarks in the case where the flow and the amount of water increase and the first is not enough, and the third will work thanks to the UltraSump system which is a battery backup pump.
To complete this system, since we live in Quebec, IceGuard accessories and LawnScape have been added to the discharge pipe. The first allows the water to drain even if the pipe freezes in winter and the second lets the water out of the foundation by hiding itself in the grass.
Mrs. Vanessa was finally at ease since she knew she made the proper decision by buying this house in Anjou, and with our help, she waterproofed the entire basement and finished it with the best products available in the market.
