Doug Lacey's Basement Systems Case Studies: Wood Foundation Waterproofing in Cochrane, AB

Friday, June 16th, 2017 by Eric Hansen


These homeowners experience moisture and water issue’s coming in to their home through the existing treated wood foundation. The moisture was coming through where the wood foundation wall meets the concrete footing pad and was preventing them from fully finishing and utilizing their basement space, robbing the homes full value and potential. They knew if they did not get this fixed it would end up costing them a lot in the long run. These homeowners contacted the waterproofing and foundation repair experts at Doug Lacey’s Basement Systems to come out, assess the situation, and provide a FREE, no obligation quote designed specific to address all of their concerns.


After our waterproofing System Design Specialist Eric Hansen came to their home, and created a game plan on how to attack their water issues, our expert technicians got right to work. Our WaterGuard® French Drain system was utilized to give that leaking water a place to flow. Our drainage system is one of our many patented products we offer. It is installed above the foundation footing, and helps to prevent any clogs from occurring. After our drainage system collects the water from the walls, flooring, and doors, it is flowed into our SuperSump® sump pump system. A full-featured system, SuperSump® includes the best components available including a top-rated 1/3HP Zoeller® pump is designed for reliability & high-volume pumping. We then wrapped the foundation walls with a DMX air-gap membrane wall system as well as spray foamed the perimeter cavities to ensure the walls were sealed.

These happy homeowners are more than excited knowing they now have the peace of mind that their basement under 24/7 water watch. They can now make full use of their space and develop. This will also contribute to raising the market value of their home.
