Before and After Pictures from Calgary
Calgary, AB foundation repair!

Calgary, AB foundation repair!

Before After
Calgary, AB foundation repair! Calgary, AB foundation repair!

This Calgary, AB customer contacted us because her foundation walls were bowing (curving inwards). Bowing is caused by excessive pressure from soil and water, and can potentially cause your foundation to collapse! When asked, she said she has known about her bowing walls for about 10 years, but only decided it was time to get it fixed once her walls started leaking as well as bowing. Our crews installed a waterproofing system which includes our CleanSpace® vapor barrier, our WaterGuard® below-floor drain, and a SuperSump® sump pump. This solved all her waterproofing problems, and for the bowing walls, we installed our PowerBrace foundation wall repair system. This will stabilize these bowing walls and can potentially straighten them out!

This customer contacted us online and told us that he was worried because water was entering his basement from between the floor and the wall, but he wasn't 100% sure. He mentioned that the water could be coming in from the windows or the extension that they added onto their home. We sent a System Design Specialist to go and determine what was causing the water to enter the basement.  He determined that the water was in fact coming from the foundation footing (between the floor and the wall). The solution was to install a WaterGuard® below-floor drain and a Sump Pump to pump the water out. Once that was installed, this customer did not have to worry about water entering his basement anymore!

This customer contacted us because he noticed that his floor was sagging in some places in their recently purchased Calgary, AB home. Our system design specialist went to check it out and noticed that the settlement in his home was caused by inadequate support in his crawlspace. When the customer heard that the crawlspace was the problem, he said that he wanted it encapsulated so he can gain some more storage space as well. We installed our SmartJack® crawlspace support system. It provides solid support to stabilize and straighten sagging floors. To encapsulate it we used our CleanSpace® vapor barrier. Is 100% waterproof and prevents humidity from making its way into the space while also covering the dirt and rock making it a clean storage space.

Foundation Problems & More in Calgary

Calgary has a prairie-steppe type climate. So there is usually sunny weather, even in winter. Temperatures are mild during summer, averaging 15°C to 25°C. Most of the little rainfall comes during this time and is vital for the wheat and grass grown on the prairies. Calgary experiences very little snowfall in winter, with depths greater than 1 cm on about 88 days annually, and temperatures average -5 to -15°C.

Many people think colder environments are at a lower risk for mold, structural damage, wet basements or crawl spaces, and other home issues. But these homes tend to be the most sealed, not allowing heat to escape. The trapped heat causes higher humidity and moisture in the below-grade space, which can wreak havoc on the property, including problems like:

  • Home hold: Homes in Calgary tend to be more insulated to protect against cold temperatures, trapping the heat indoors and causing increased humidity and condensation. The heat and moisture can lead to home mold, mildew, and rot.
  • Sagging floors: A wet basement or crawl space can cause rotting support beams, sagging floors, and other structural damage, leading to costly repairs and an unsafe environment overall.
  • Structural damage: Foundation heave or frost heave occurs when soils naturally freeze and thaw, expanding and contracting, exerting pressure on foundation walls and causing foundation cracks, foundation settlement, and structural damage.

As your local waterproofing and foundation repair company, Doug Lacey's Basement Systems often recommends our self-draining dehumidifiers to eliminate humidity and moisture and prevent mold, mildew, structural damage, and more. To combat foundation heave and frost heave, we also recommend foundation crack repairs, slab piers, crawl space jacks, and foundation wall repair systems to stabilize the home, permanently repair structural damage, and protect against future foundation problems.

Job Stories From Calgary, AB
A leaky basement scare in NW Calgary

This homeowner has lived in his home for over 20 years and he has noticed that some of the flooring he glued to his basement floor had started peeling. Upon further investigation, he noticed that there was an efflorescence-type power in between all the seams of the flooring. Efflorescence is a tell-tale sign of water damage in your home, specifically your basement. It gets deposited when excessive moisture gets on the surface of concrete and then dries up. Usually, it can signify a large problem and we advise anyone who discovers it in their home to book a FREE estimate, but it was a different story for this homeowner. 

When our System Design Specialist went to do a FREE estimate on this home, he noticed that there were no other signs of a potential leak in the basement (cracks or heaving). He did an entire inspection to make sure but ultimately discovered that this efflorescence-type power was the glue that they used to glue down the flooring. It had tricked them! There was no need for this homeowner to be concerned about a leak! The homeowner did the right thing by contacting us, and we are happy we were able to provide another homeowner with peace of mind, even with no work being done!

Radon levels

Radon levels all over Calgary differ greatly, even with 2 neighbors side by side. We went into a home in the NW community of Evanston, and tested their radon levels. We were very surprised to see the number of 700 Bq/m3. This number is over 3 times the levels that health Canada states you should mitigate it. This family had moved into their house a few years ago and had no idea they were living with radon the whole time. They have since installed a radon mitigation system and their number have decreased to a safe amount.

 

A few weeks later we went to test the radon levels at a house on the same street. We were shocked when we say that this home, just a few houses down the street, had a radon reading that was under 200 Bq/m3.

 

We hope that this story can prove to all the homeowners in Calgary that:

1) if you haven't tested your radon levels yet, you should do it asap! You never know how much radon you are living with and, 

2) Just because your neighbor, or someone that lives near you got a low radon reading, it does not mean that your radon reading will be low as well. 

 

Radon levels around Calgary are as unpredictable as the weather, so make sure to keep you and your family safe! 

Radon Mitigation & Sump Pump Installed in SE Calgary, AB

This homeowner in SE Calgary, Alberta contacted us concerned about high levels of Radon Gas found in their home. Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that has become the second-leading cause of lung cancer, second only to cigarette smoke. Most soils contain uranium that, over time, decays to produce radium and polonium. Eventually, polonium is released with the radon, which creates a high toxicity level in the air and water that it infuses. 

A System Design Specialist was able to visit the homeowner, assess the situation, and provide them with a FREE, no obligation quote for the radon mitigation system they requested. From there our Radon Mitigation Specialist was able to install a sub-slab Radon Gas Mitigation System which draws the gas from beneath the basement floor slab and vents it outside of the home. A SuperSump® sump pump system was also installed with the Radon Gas Mitigation System.

Water Issues in SE Calgary, AB Solved with New Sump Pump Installation

This homeowner in SE Calgary, Alberta had encountered issues with water entering the basement of their home. Looking for a permanent and reliable solution 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 to address all of their concerns. Our Production Team went to the home to install our 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. What you will notice is there is no discharge line coming out of the top of the sump pump lid, a side discharge was installed instead. Similar to a top discharge the hole for sump is jackhammered and the basin is installed flush with the floor.  The difference with a side discharge is the plumbing off the pump is directed out the side of the basin below the lid.  We then install a solid lid that sits flush with the concrete floor.  The discharge line can then be run to the exterior wall and up the wall before being cored through to the exterior of the home. The home owner can then finish with stud framing and drywall and conceal the discharge line. Carpet or other flooring material can be laid over top of the solid sump lid so long as access remains for future maintenance on the sump system.  Basement Systems also installs a WaterWatch alarm system on side discharge sumps with a probe and wire to a small box. If the water levels were to reach the probe an alarm would warn the owner that there is an issue with the system.

Smart Jacks Installed to Stabilize Crawlspace in NW Calgary, AB

A homeowner in NW Calgary, Alberta came across a crack that was on the outside of their foundation wall. Wanting to protect their home and rectify this issue, 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 specific to address the concerned crack. Our Production Team then went to the home to install our CleanSpace® crawl space vapor barrier encapsulation to prevent moisture from passing through the floors. This durable liner will turn the the crawl space into a clean usable storage space. To replace the damaged support posts our Production Team installed the SmartJack® Crawl Space Support Jacks. The SmartJack® systems are designed to be installed in tight conditions. Made with galvanized steel for corrosion resistance, it can support vertical loads exceeding 60,000 lbs. The adjustable design of our crawl space jack system means that sagging floors can not only be stabilized, they can also be restored to their original position in many cases. This homeowner can now rest easy knowing that their home has the best solution in place for this situation.

Seven Foot Sump Pump Installed in a Home in NW Calgary, AB

A homeowner in NW Calgary, Alberta noticed heaving and water saturation beside the walkout basement of her home. Wanting to know her options on how to permanently fix this issue, she called Doug Lacey's Basement Systems to see what her options were!

A System Design Specialist was able to visit the home to assess the situation and provide her with a FREE, no obligation quote. One of our Production Foreman and his crew then went to the home to get the job done. A 7 ft sump pump was installed which is primarily used for either a walk out or an area where the furnace vents go through the floor. What caused the water saturation was the plenum goes through the basement floor and then redistributes the heat underneath the concrete slab, in this case what typically happens the tin starts to rust and water breaches into the plenum so our solution is to provide a 7’ sump to get underneath the plenum to redirect the water to the sump pump. Attached to the to the home and then to the exterior piping an IceGuard® system was installed, which is an anti-freeze fitting that ejects water away from the foundation in the event that the sump pump discharge lines freeze or become clogged.

Homeowner Adds Sump Pump to New Home Addition to Prevent Future Water Problems in SW Calgary, AB

These homeowners in Calgary, Alberta contacted the experts at Doug Lacey's Basement Systems in search of preventative waterproofing measures for the new addition they were adding to their home. 

A System Design Specialist provided the homeowners with a FREE, no obligation quote designed specific for the new addition. Our Production Team went to the home to install our 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. Also installed with the sump pumps is 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. 

By having them installed during the building of the new addition it also saves the homeowners time, money, not to mention the floor slab can now be poured perfectly level to the top of the sump basin. Having waterproofing systems installed during the new addition or any new home construction also allows for the homeowner to place the sump pump in a location in the basement that can easily be later hidden and framed around, keeping them out of site.

The photos include before the new TripleSafe™sump pump system was installed, plus once it is installed then the two Iceguards with discharge line buried into the ground.
