This Magog customer contacted us to tell us about his concerns regarding his house foundations after noticing big cracks in the drywall and as well as the floors.
Following the request of our client, we sent our specialist to perform a complete internal and external evaluation of the house and we 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 installed our SilverGlo insulation panels, which are panels that reflect the heat to your basement.
Ms. Tremblay contacted Systèmes Sous-sol Québec, because a strong odor of humidity emanated from her basement. There was several water seepage, mold and its sump pump system was not sufficient to remove all the water. All of these factors caused this unpleasant smell of dampness.
Our client wanted a complete and permanent solution to her problem. And for that, our experts installed a WaterGuard interior drain which is connected to a second SmartPump sump pump system. In this way, the water ends up in the WaterGuard and the latter will direct it to the Smart Pump. Then they laid a drainage mat on the gravel floor. Its function is to direct the surface water towards the sump pump. They added the TerraBlock insulation sheets to the drainage mat in order to insulate the floor of the house and allow for some comfort when moving. Finally, they applied our CleanSpace coating on top of the TerraBlock. The three combined (Drainage Mat, TerraBlock and CleanSpace) form a perfect trio for insulating and waterproofing the basement.
This customer in Magog contacted us in 2015 to solve his problem of water infiltration in his unfinished basement. He used this space as a storage room. He was beginning to worry that water is damaging these assets. Actually when our specialist went on site and found this problem, has also noticed that the humidity was far too high. Moisture is very harmful to building materials as it speeds up mold and condensation and is harmful to your health. Our specialist immediately realized that a complete waterproofing and dehumidification system was needed. So we installed a WaterGuard indoor drain system connected to a SuperSump sump pump system to evacuate the water away from home. We also solved the moisture problem by installing the SanidDry XP that dries and purifies the air. This ensures that the basement can be used for many purposes, including storage, without any worries.

The problem: This Magog client's sump pump was old and was not suitable for her needs. When it needed to work, it was not sufficient and the water would rise a little in her basement. This bothered the client and that is why she decided to contact us, in order to receive a free estimate to assess her situation.
The Solution: When our Systems Design Specialist introduced himself, he provided the client with his assessment and suggested solutions. The one chosen for this project was the installation of a SuperSump. It was connected to a discharge line and on this line we added an Iceguard. This system is ideal, because the SuperSump has a very good capacity to evacuate water and by combining it with the Iceguard, the basement will not have a problem during the winter if the discharge line blocked because of ice.
So this Magog client can now enjoy a dry basement and she won't have to worry about any blockage in her discharge line.
Mr. Gerard a resident of Magog contacted us after noticing some problems in his house foundation.
He noticed that there was a very large crack in his poured concrete floor; this is often an indication of the slump of the floor and cracks in the drywall, as well as tearing of the plaster walls.
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 piling work 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.

This was the case of our client from Magog, who was having problems in her house due to water infiltration in the basement especially during thaw seasons.
After contacting many companies that failed to fix her problem, Mrs. Caroline decided to call our company for a free inspection.
Following that call our team estimated her basement and had the perfect solution to solve her problem.
Our professionals suggested the installation of a complete waterproofing system including a 25 feet of WaterGuard, installed on the base of the foundation where the wall and the floor meet, because it is often there that the water infiltrates; a SuperSump sump pump that evacuates the water that is redirected towards it away from the house; and IceGuard and LawnScape discharge line accessories.
