Cold basement walls make your entire basement colder in the winter. The cold surface also creates condensation in the summer. Insulating your basement walls with the right material can help make your basement warmer and drier.
Those problems were occurring in our client’s basement in Montreal, and this is when she deceided to contact us!
Our team suggested the installation of 2 from our products: ThermalDry and Foamax.
Our thermalDry system is Stain resistant.Won't warp, bow or delaminate like wood products.
As for our Foamax, it really makes a big difference in the temperature of your walls, providing a comfortable basement and lowering heating costs.
Our customer in Montreal was very happy with her house until her basement had problems of water infiltration and constant humidity, causing damages to everything in that basement including the furniture and the walls.
Our specialist recommended a complete drainage system to protect her entire basement, all the time!
Mrs. R, a Montreal resident, was having water infiltration problems in her basement, and she needed to get this problem fixed ASAP, and for good, so she could reuse her basement fully, without being worried about any future problems.
Furthermore, her old sump pump wasn’t working properly and water was infiltrating into her basement, inside the wall bricks, and on the floors, and in order to fix this problem, our team has replaced the existing sump pump pit by our SuperSump, which is not only hermetically sealed to prevent humidity from going out but also has an alarm system that sounds if the pump stops working and the water level reaches the top.
In the case of this client, we later added as per the client's request an UltraSump battery backup system, which is a backup system that can discharge about 12,000 gallons on one discharge if the main pump ever stops working in cases such as failure, a circuit break or power outage.

The problem: The customer had just bought a brand new duplex in Montreal and there was a ceiling sag in the basement of about an inch and a half. After doing some research on the web, the client came across our website and decided to fill out our form to make an appointment to receive his free estimate.
The Solution: Following an inspection by our systems design specialist John, he concluded that the best solution would be to install a support pillar called SmartJack. This pillar will stabilize the ceiling to keep it in place so that it does not sag anymore. At start we start by digging a hole 2 feet by 2 feet.. Then we fill it with crushed stone in order to fill the hole.. Then we add the concrete and the Smartjack.
In short, the customer will no longer have to worry about the sagging of his floor which will now be stabilized, thanks to our SmartJack.
Mr. Haddad has lived in his house for several years. Lately he noticed a high humidity in his house and it made the room environment uncomfortable. He contacted Systèmes Sous-sol Québec to resolve the problem and make his home comfortable.
The source of the problem is the crawl space which was not isolated. There was a lot of humidity there and it came from the ground and from outside.
So the best solution was to insulate Mr. Haddad's crawl space well. For this, our experts insulated the walls with our SilverGlo panels. 2 '' thick insulation with radiant barrier to isolate the cold and reflect heat inside the crawl space. And then they covered the floor with our CleanSpace coating. With a thickness of 20mm, the coating is specially designed for crawl spaces. Robust, composed of polyethylene and antimicrobial, it insulates the floor of the house and blocks humidity.
By having the walls and the floor well insulated, Mr. Haddad will no longer have a problem with humidity in his house. He now has a clean and above all dry crawl space!
The problem: This client from Montreal had a house with one corner of its foundation sagging. We saw him quickly and easily during the free estimate we did at his home. On the corner in question there was a staircase-type crack at the top of the wall, on the same wall there was another large exposed crack in the bricks and also next to one of the windows there was also a crack that clearly demonstrated that there was a sinking of the foundation in the ground.
As a solution, we excavated down to the footing of the foundation to insert four push piers to support the foundation in place. In some cases, it depends on several factors, it is possible to straighten the foundation back to its original state, but as mentioning each project is different then, you have to assess the risks, because these piles are very strong and the pressure that they can exercise is very great. That is why if it is possible, without aggravating or damaging the structure we can straighten the foundation, but their primary purpose is to maintain the current position so that it does not worsen further. Also, for this project, we installed Carbon armor, as there was a section of the foundation that arched outward. So this strip made of carbon fiber and reinforced with polymer will help to slow down the camber of the foundation.
From now on, this client in Montreal will be able to have peace of mind, because his foundation is very well stabilized thanks to the hydraulic piles installed and he will no longer need to worry about the level of sagging of his foundation.
Ms. Renaud has lived in her house for about 10 years and would like to use her crawl space as storage space. However, its crawl space is made of earth and the stone walls are not insulated. Which makes it a damp and cold place and not ideal for storage. She decided to contact Systèmes Sous-sol Québec to obtain a quick solution that will meet her needs.
Our solution for our client was to remove the debris, install a drainage mat on the earth floor to direct surface water to the sump pump in place and then lay our CleanSpace liner over the drainage mat.
The CleanSpace helps block the evaporation of water in the ground to reduce the humidity level in the crawl space. It is sturdy and gives a clean and clear appearance to the crawl space.
With this solution, Mrs. Renaud will finally be able to use this space to store her belongings.
Mr. Diaz has lived in his house for over 10 years. Over time, he noticed that the foundation of his house was quietly sagging. He knows that if he does nothing, his foundation will continue to sag. So he wants to have it fixed before the problem gets worse. He decided to contact Système Sous-sol Québec to obtain a permanent solution.
The problem was that the ground where its foundation is located was weak and therefore was not stable. This caused movement of the wooden beams which support the weight of the house causing overload of weight and slits in the beams in several places. Because of this, the foundation was quietly sagging.
The solution for our client was to install SmartJack supports to support the joist reinforcement device in place. About ten brackets were installed in order to support the weight evenly and straighten the floor to the floor above in its initial position.
With this solution, Mr. Diaz will have nothing more to fear for his foundation.
Mrs. Riga who lives in Montreal had a small basement under her house.This basement was not properly ventilated and allowed all of the moisture in. Furthemore the place was always damp and she was not able to use it for any storage purpose.
After seeing our work on the internet, our specialist went to check up her place and suggested the installation of 2 products: ThermalDry and Foamax.
Our ThermalDry basement floor tiles are engineered for basement environments. Unlike ceramic basement floor tiles, ThermalDry basement flooring will never crack or shatter.
As for the Foamax, it is an advanced polyisocyanurate foam insulation panel designed with a white foil finish on the front and a foil vapor barrier on the back. The white finished face brightens the basement and the vapor barrier helps control basement humidity.
After the installation, the basement looked so clean and bright and Andy was able to benefit from it.
The hydrostatic pressure exerted on the walls of this basement in Montreal pushed the water inward through the pores of the concrete and the wall-base joints.
If this is happening in your home, the flooding of your basement may proceed at a snail’s pace. But it will proceed, and the longer the soil stays saturated around your home the worse your basement flooding problem will become.
When ours client faced those issues in their house in Montreal, they knew that they needed to consult specialists to solve those problems for good!
After their call, we went to examine their place, and suggested the installation of our waterproofing products and finishing it as well with our finishing products from the EverLast panels, the Floor Matting Thermal Dry and finally installed our Cleanspace membrane.
This place will never get moldy again thanks to our EverLast panels that comes with a 50 Year warranty.
As for our ThermalDry basement floor tiles, they are engineered for basement environments. Unlike ceramic basement floor tiles, ThermalDry basement flooring will never crack or shatter.
This basement in Montreal is now completely waterproofed and looks so great and neat thanks to our products.
While constructors take steps to waterproof basements during construction, over time a house can settle, creating cracks in the basement walls.
When the soil outside becomes saturated, water can seep through these cracks.
As the water from the walls evaporates, the air in the basement becomes more humid.
A high-quality dehumidifier will help remove excess basement humidity, but the best long-term solution is to waterproof the walls.
Since one of our client’s basements in Montreal East had major water infiltration by the foundation, he contacted us asking about one of our free inspections and a quote.
We sent one of our specialists who recommended the installation of an interior drain system on the foundation footing as well as a vapor barrier membrane and a SuperSump sump pump system.
The SuperSump is a sump pump liner installed in the ground and connected to the inner drain to evacuate water that is trying to seep into the basement through the foot of the foundation.
Now that we have completely waterproofed this place, it’s always dry and in great condition!
When Mr. George contacted us, he did not know much about basement waterproofing, and he was having many problems in his place in Outremont City from infiltration of ground water, moisture and bad ventilation.
At first he was very worried whether we will need to do a total renovation for the place, and this might cost him lots of money and time. But our team reassured him that our products do not need all of this hustle and can be installed within few days only, with the least cost.
We sent our expert Peter to check his basement for free, and he showed him about our plan, and informed him more about the products.
Mr. George agreed on all of the executions and prices and we started our work.
Since its easier to waterproof from the inside to the outside, we installed our interior drain’ The WaterGuard’ to capture the water from the walls , and from the most common point of entry.
The WaterGuard was linked to our Supersump pump system that has a sturdy liner to accept water directly from the ground, as well as a larger inlet hole to allow your perimeter drainage system to empty into it.
A few years ago, we installed a complete basement waterproofing system for a client. When she learned that we also offer attic insulation service, she immediately booked an appointment for a FREE inspection. She had noticed that her attic was colder than normal but had not started procedures to solve the problem. We explained to her the importance of insulating her attic and the impact it has on the optimization of her energy consumption.
In fact, the attic should be seen both as the upper space of the house, but also as an outdoor space because it is a ventilated place. That's why your attic can be too hot in summer and too cold in winter. This can greatly affect the comfort of your home.
Believing in our patented and effective solutions, Mrs. Warren trusted us for a second time and we installed the best Attic Systems Insulation products. So, as recommended by our specialist Andrew, our foremen Petru and Cedrick removed all the old insulation, insulated the chimney's outline with a metal flashing and fire caulk seal, sealed the gaps and holes to stop air from leaking, then isolated the entire attic space with our TruSoft cellulose insulation.
The attic is now isolated so as to conserve energy efficiently. We are happy to finally be able to offer this service after several months of training and work. Insulate your attic today!

The owners of this beautiful house in Westmount faced several problems at their home. Having a crawl space under the house, the family always felt a damp smell in the house. Floors, very cold in the winter, continually creaked when walked over, and it got worse from year to year. The house needed to be heated continuously, especially in the presence of an earth crawl space.
The owner then sought a specialist in crawl spaces and found our company on the internet. Peter Romaniuk, our specialist, conducted a comprehensive inspection of the crawlspace. The inspection was difficult because the space is very tight, but Peter was able to take pictures and recommend a system that completely matched customer expectations.
Peter recommended the CleanSpace, our patented membrane that is guaranteed for 25 years, to completely seal the crawl space of the earth below and protect the home. Moreover, as the crawlspace walls were very cold and shrugged their heating bills, Peter decided to cover the walls with a thermal insulating membrane, the SilverGlo. This membrane also reflects the rays of heat originating from the heating of the house, inwardly. Finally our team also installed a special SmartDrain to drain the water from plumbing leaks, and which also has an alarm that sounds at the touch of water.
This family was extremely happy to protect their home and health by installing a complete crawlspace encapsulation system.
This family had a basement water infiltration problem since they bought their house in 2000. Unfortunately, the existing pedestal pump could not solve the problem of water seeping through the joints between foundation walls and footing.
The fact that the pump broke down without a way for owners to know it, made this situation even more difficult. Water dripped regularly on the floor and it was impossible to keep the basement dry and to use it as storage space. The humidity level was also very high which damaged the wood and hardware.
Our solution included installing our internal drain system the WaterGuard, the only alternative to French drains and which is guaranteed for the life of the house. The drain was connected to our SuperSump sump pump, which pumps 2,200 gallons of water per hour at a head of 8 feet and is equipped with an alarm system so the owners know if the pump stops working.
In addition, we installed one of our vapor barrier systems, the CleanSpace, on the basement walls, a membrane which helps lower the moisture level and directs water wicking through the basement walls down to the WaterGuard.
This family could now benefit from a dry basement, all the time! Basement Systems Quebec is proud to have fixed the water infiltration problems for many home owners in Montreal, permanently!
