It has been 20+ years now that Doug Lacey's Basement Systems has been providing Airdrie with expert basement waterproofing, crawl space repair, foundation repair, concrete leveling and radon mitigation. If you are in need of these services we are the right ones to call. 1-833-436-1098
We are not a general contractor that knows a little about everything. We know a lot about basements, foundations, concrete and radon. So when you call us expect a knowledgeable, friendly expert to visit your home.
Wet basements mean future mold and rot. We prevent this nightmare by properly waterproofing your basement. We repair any leaks and install an interior drainage channel to collect any entering water. The water is drained to a sump pump where it is removed from the basement. You never see it happening but your basement is protected against floods and water seepage.
The water is only half the problem. Excessive moisture caused by high relative humidity still allows mold to grow. So we install an energy-efficient basement dehumidifier that controls the humidity levels so mold never occurs. Our basement waterproofing system has a lifetime, dry-basement warranty.
The crawl space is another culprit for water problems and moldy smells. We have the answer - crawl space encapsulation. Rigid foam insulation is placed along the ground and crawl space walls and then covered with a thick vinyl vapor barrier. The crawl space openings are sealed and a crawl space dehumidifier is installed.
Without the transfer of cold and hot air into the crawl space the temperature is maintained. That and the relative humidity being kept in check by the dehumidifier prevents mold and rot from developing. Our crawl space encapsulation system has a 25-year warranty.
Fixing a foundation problem takes the right training and the right tools. We have worked on hundreds of foundation repair projects. We also have a host of tools and products designed to provide custom foundation repair. These include helical piles, helical piers, push piers, wall anchors and crawl space support posts.
Before foundation repair work begins we have one of our foundation specialists visit your home in Airdrie for a free inspection and estimate. They will explain the source of the issue and different repair options. The foundation products we use to repair your home have a 25 year warranty.
We also lift and level sunken concrete slabs using PolyLEVEL, a polyurethane foam. The technique we use is called slab jacking or mudjacking and is traditionally done with a mudslurry (mixture of concrete and dirt). The process involves drilling holes in the sunken slab and pumping the slurry beneath the slab where fills empty space and lifts the slab back to its original position. This is a great process but we choose to use PolyLEVEL instead of mudslurry.
|We can Fix:
PolyLEVEL is superior to mudslurry in a number of ways. It is injected through much smaller holes in the concrete. It is also expansive spreading out to fill any empty space beneath the slab. It is much lighter than mudslurry and doesn't put additional stress on foundation soil. It also cures in hours vs days reaching 90% strength under an hour.
If you are worried about Radon in your home give us a call. 1-833-436-1098. If the Radon levels are too high we will install a radon mitigation system. Radon enters your home through the basement so we will drill a hole in the basement wall and seal a PVC pipe to create a suction point. Entering Radon is vented through the pipe which runs up the outside of your home. The Radon is then expelled safely out and away.
