This homeowner in Southwest Calgary, Alberta encountered issues with water leaking in through foundation cracks around the properties basement. Wanting to eliminate the water issues permanently as well as repair the cracks in the foundation they contacted the experts at Doug Lacey's Basement Systems.
A System Design Specialist was able assess the situation and provide them with a FREE, no obligation quote designed specific to address their concerns. Our Production Team was then able to then come to the home to install a CleanSpace® vapor barrier along the walls which is a 100% waterproof plastic that's perfect for unfinished basement walls. It has 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 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. The cracks were also repaired utilizing a Polyurethane Resin injection, followed by reinforcing the crack with CarbonArmor®. CarbonArmor® is a series of strips that are secured across the crack significantly improving the overall stability of the wall.
When the snow melts the homeowner can have one of our crews come out to bury the discharge line for an additional cost or he can do it himself, its that easy!
