This couple from Pointe-aux-Trembles had problems with water infiltration in the basement of their residence. After a few years of enduring water infiltration during periods of heavy rain and snowmelt, these owners made the decision to solve the problem. The couple had moisture problems in the house and bad odors were coming out of the basement.
After some research, they made the decision to bring in a Systèmes Sous-sol Québec specialist to carry out a complete inspection of the basement of the house.
A few weeks later, a team of technicians specializing in basement waterproofing came to install a CleanSpace membrane on the basement walls, as well as a SuperSump sump pump system for this Pointe-aux-Trembles couple.
Following the installation, the owners of this house no longer had a single drop of water on their floor and unpleasant odors have disappeared for good.
Polyurethane injection is one of the best ways to repair a crack in your foundation, without having to dig up the foundation wall.
Our team has injected the polyurethane in this basement in Pointe-Aux-Trembles in order to prevent the infiltration of water.
The chemical expansion of the polyurethane (typically 5-10 times its original volume) makes polyurethane very effective at filling voids within the concrete; these voids are typically invisible when you look at the wall and are often associated with the porosity of the concrete.
This basement in Pointes-Aux-Trembles got flooded last year, and Mrs. Sylvie was really worried about her safety and the state of her house. So she called our company asking us for waterproofing solutions to end this problem.
After offering her some quick safety advice, our team scheduled the nearest day for inspecting the place!
After the inspection, we recommended the installation of the WaterGuard interior drain system. So when the water that seeps in at the joint is captured by the holes under the drain and by the gaps that allow the water in the walls to go down the drain.
In addition, we recommended the installation of a sump pump system such as the TripleSafe sump pump system to keep her basement dry with triple the protection.
Finally, by installing a CleanSpace membrane, water vapor will stop from flowing up to the soil, and into the entire house. Hence moisture will be reduced and the place will be dry again.

When our client noticed some cracks on the outside walls of his house, he started searching for more clues inside his house, and inside the basement as well.
So he noticed more cracks also on the inside walls or his house, and some cracks were actually extending from the corners of his doors and windows.
So when he contacted our company, our specialist Peter went to this house in Pointes-Aux-Trembles and inspected his place for free.
Peter had noticed that there was also some caulking around the exterior doors that might be caused by foundation settlement.
So he advised our client to install a steel support pillar to raise the foundation of his home to its initial position, and inject a Polyurethane membrane on some cracked walls to avoid water infiltration.
Our team started working by first removing the concrete from the area in which the pillar will be installed.
To do this, the specialists must break the cement in the basement and dig the earth to get to the footing of the foundation.
Before proceeding with lifting the foundations, the technicians at Systèmes Sous-sol Québec had to install a super-resistant steel support against the base of the foundation of this house in Pointe-aux-Trembles.
And finally after installing the steel support against the footing of the foundation, the technicians had to drive (hydraulically) the sections of the steel pillar, through the support to the bedrock.
Our client was very satisfied with our work, especially knowing that his house’s value will be maintained for many years to come!
