Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Home in Need of Foundation Crack Repair and a Waterproofing System in NE Calgary, AB

Album Description

This homeowner in Northeast Calgary, Alberta contacted us concerned with a leaking crack located in the basement wall. Cracks in foundation walls are common in homes throughout Alberta. Usually a side effect of the natural curing process of concrete, however when they leak they can cause a lot of mess and headache. Not only did this homeowner want the foundation crack repaired they also wanted an entire waterproofing system to prevent any future floods. 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 this homeowners concerns. The foundation crack was then repaired by our Service Team utilizing a Polyurethane Resin injection, followed by reinforcing the crack with CarbonArmor®, a series of strips across the crack significantly improving the overall stability of the wall. Once the crack was repaired our Production Team was able to come to the home to install our 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 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. From there the system will discharge any water entering the sump pump basin to the exterior of the home passing through our patented IceGuard® system, an anti-freeze fitting that is installed outside of your home and ejects water away from the foundation in the event that the sump pump discharge lines freeze or become clogged.
