This homeowner in Shaughnessy, Alberta contacted us concerned with some leaking cracks within their basement wall. Cracks in foundation walls are common in homes throughout Alberta, however when these cracks leak they can cause a huge mess and an immense amount of frustration. In search of the best solution to address their concern, and protect their home investment, these homeowners contacted the experts at Doug Lacey's Basement Systems.
A System Design Specialist was able assess the situation and provide the homeowners with a FREE, no obligation quote designed specific to address all of the homeowners concerns. The foundation crack was then repaired by our Service Team utilizing a Polyurethane Resin injection, followed by reinforcing the crack with CarbonArmor®. CarbonArmor® a series of strips that are secured across the crack significantly improving the overall stability of the wall.
This homeowner wanted more than just the cracks repaired, they wanted to make sure that if water did leak into their home again they would have some back up measures to prevent the basement from flooding. So, from there our Production Team was then able to then come to the home to install CleanSpace® vapor barrier along the walls which is a 100% waterproof plastic that's perfect for unfinished basement walls. With a 25 year warranty for wear and tear, it's durable, washable, and has anti-microbial protection called UltraFresh built right in! The wall vapor barrier ties into the patented WaterGuard® drainage system. The WaterGuard® Below-Floor Drain System is designed with a built-in wall flange, which extends up your basement wall by 3/8", capturing any water leaking from the walls will move downward and behind this flange where it is then directed to the TripleSafe™sump pump system. Our most reliable sump pump system, the TripleSafe™ provides three levels of protection for your basement and your peace of mind. For normal functioning, the TripleSafe™ has a powerful, cast-iron Zoeller® ⅓ horsepower sump pump set at the lowest level. For heavy volumes of water or in case of primary pump failure, a second, more powerful Zoeller® ½ hp pump set a bit higher in the liner will take over. In case of a power outage, our UltraSump® battery backup sump pump, set at the highest level, will pump 11,500 gallons or more on a fully charged battery!
