Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Homeowner in Need of Waterproofing System and Joist Stabilization in SW Calgary, AB

Album Description

This homeowner in Southwest Calgary, Alberta encountered issues with water leaking in through foundation cracks around the perimeter of their basement. They had also noticed the joists within their basement were showing signs of movement. Wanting to eliminate the water issues permanently in the basement and regain the usable space, they contacted the experts at Doug Lacey's Basement Systems.

A System Design Specialist was able to assess the situation and provide the homeowners with a FREE, no obligation quote designed specifically to address all of the homeowners concerns. Our Production Team was then able to come to the home and 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. The water will then 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, 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 the home and ejects water away from the foundation in the event that the sump pump discharge lines freeze or become clogged. The discharge line has been buried below-grade out of plain sight ending off with a Bubbler Pot away from the home installed flush with the grass on the lawn. The Bubbler Pot is designed in this way to make it easier to service and also the design allows the homeowner to tend to their yard without the discharge line getting in the way. 

To address the stabilization problem our Production Team had installed two 7' SmartJack® Support JacksThe SmartJack® systems, made with galvanized steel for corrosion resistance can support vertical loads exceeding 60,000 lbs.

This homeowner can now rest easy knowing that their home has the best solution in place for this situation.
