    Better advice re foundation crack repair than other companies - going down under foundation. And, you installed our sump pump system about a year ago.

    Before
    Water Penetrating Through the Floor of a Basement Springfield, ON
    After

    Water Penetrating Through the Floor of a Basement Springfield, ON

    Problem: This home has an unfinished basement that is used to house the laundry and mechanical components of the home; such as the hot water tank, electrical and the heating system. There was considerable evidence that water was penetrating from some of the exterior walls as well as up through the floor of the basement; causing cracks, water to pool on the floor and damage to the systems of the home.  

    Solution: Our team installed a perimeter drain on the leaky walls as well as a trench drain in the problem areas of the floor. We then finished off with some concrete work. Now these homeowners enjoy a clean, dry and safe basement as well as peace of mind knowing that the basement and home’s systems won’t suffer from any further water damage.

    What a transformation!

  • Sealing Crawl Space Vents, Southwestern ON
    Before
    Sealing Crawl Space Vents, Southwestern ON
    After

    Sealing Crawl Space Vents, Southwestern ON

    Problem:  Open crawl space vents allow for the outside air to easily enter a crawl space. Fluctuations in weather combined with the naturally damp and humid environment in a crawl space means a home is likely to have cold floors, higher humidity and a damp, musty smell.

    Open crawl space vents are also an invitation to pests to live under your home!

    Solution: We replaced all the open vents and installed airtight vent covers. Although the covers are only part of creating a healthy and dry crawl space environment – it’s an important step!

    A Challenging Multi-Level Dirt Crawl Space, Oxford County

    Problem: This multi-level dirt floor crawl space was a challenge successfully met by our crew! The open vents were resulting in cold floors during the winter. In the summer the crawl space was damp and musty; the foul odour affected the entire home.

    Solution:  We sealed off the open vents and installed a CleanSpace liner vapour barrier system; which totally encapsulates the crawl space. Our crew also applied moisture-resistant spray foam insulation to help make the home more energy efficient.

    Before

    Sump Pump in a Dirt Floor Crawl Space, Ingersoll Ontario

    Problem:  An open sump pump pit is an undesirable feature in homes: but especially when it’s located within a dirt floor crawl space. Dirt and debris can easily enter the pit causing the pump to clog and malfunction. The open pit adds unwanted excess humidity in an already challenging environment.

    Solution:  Our crew installed the Triple Safe™ sump pump and pit liner; a sump pump system designed for crawl spaces. This pump is fully compatible with our complete crawl space vapour barrier system, which the homeowners also had installed.

    With regular yearly maintenance, these homeowners now enjoy the comfort of knowing their sump pump system is efficient, working and reliable!

  • Basement Wall Restoration London, ON

    After

    Basement Wall Restoration London, ON

    Problem:  This drywall had some water damage. Drywall is made of organic material, which means it can rot and grow mould when exposed to moisture and water- which can be likely within a basement environment! The studs that hold the drywall up are made of wood, which can also rot. When this happens, a musty odour is noticed. 

    Solution: Our Everlast Wall Restoration System is completely inorganic! We also use metal studs. The chair rail and baseboard are made of PVC. The wall panels themselves are made of a concrete board with a textured vinyl finish that never needs to be painted!

    Sump Pump in a Crawl Space in Mount Brydges ON

    Problem:  This home had a problem with flooding in the crawl space, creating wet, undesirable environment

    Solution: An important element of a dry crawl space is a reliable sump pump system. Without one, a crawl space will still be vulnerable to groundwater, as well as unnoticed plumbing leaks. Our SmartSump system is designed for crawl spaces.

    Problem:  These homeowners were experiencing the negative affects of a damp, musty crawl space throughout their entire home.

    Solution: We sealed the vents, updated their existing sump pump and encapsulated the entire crawl space. Our CleanSpace Liner stops moisture from passing through the dirt floor and porous concrete walls.

    Now the homeowners are enjoying a healthier home!

    Problem: This crawl space needed help! All of the incorrectly installed insulation is falling everywhere. The damp earth is causing wood-rot and energy loss is high.

    Solution: We cleaned out all the old insulation and debris. Then, we encapsulated the earth with our CleanSpace product which gives the space a beautiful white finish. At the end, we insulated the walls with spray foam. What a transformation!

    Fix for a Damaged Below Grade Entrance in Strathroy, ON

    Problem:  This below grade entrance was causing problems for these homeowners as it was built without a proper drainage system in place. The area was wet, a slip and fall hazard in the winter months, and the concrete floor was flaking away.  

    Solution: Our specialists repaired the concrete, installed a trench drain in the floor of the entrance and directed the outlet to drain in the newly updated TripleSafe Sump Pump system.

    Now the homeowners are once again enjoying the benefits of their below grade entrance!

    Dry Basement and No More Musty Smells in London, ON

    Problem: There was plenty of evidence in this basement of water penetration. Aside from the appearance of mould and stains, the entire home smelled damp and musty. The high humidity caused some wood furniture to grow mould – a sure sign that it’s well past the time to fix the wet basement problem! 

    Solution: Our team waterproofed the leaky walls and improved the overall drainage in the basement. No more water entering. No more musty, damp smells and no more toxic mould!

    Problem: The home had a high moisture content in the crawl space. The exposed earth allowed year-round humidity to cause severe damage to the wood beam.

    Solution: Install new support columns to hold up the reinforced beam, along with the Clean Space vapour barrier to seal off the home from the earth and finally a high-performance dehumidifier to allow the space to be conditioned and healthy.
