A homeowner in Lethbridge, Alberta contacted us concerned about high levels of Radon Gas found in the home after doing a test. 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. In search of the best solution to address their concern, and protect their health & home, the homeowners contacted the experts at Doug Lacey's Basement Systems.

A System Design Specialist was able to visit the homeowner, assess the situation, and provide them with a FREE, no obligation quote designed specific to address all of their concerns. From there our Radon Mitigation Specialist installed a sub-slab Radon Gas Mitigation System which draws the gas from beneath the basement floor slab and vent it outside of the home. This homeowner has taken the initiative to make sure the health and safety of his home and family is protected!

This homeowner in Lethbridge, Alberta encountered issues with water leaking in through the foundation walls around the perimeter of their basement during heavy rainfall. Their current sump system wasn't efficient enough to keep up with the excess water. Wanting to eliminate the water issues in the basement and get a permanent solution for their long-time family home, they contacted the experts at Doug Lacey's Basement Systems.

A System Design Specialist was able to visit the home 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 then come to the home to remove the existing sump system and 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® 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! In addition to the new sump system this homeowner had asked us to install an entire waterproofing system. From there our Production Team had installed the ThermalDry® Radiant Wall System which protects the basement from moisture and water that passes through concrete foundation walls. This product serves as both a vapor barrier and also as a way to redirect water leaking through the basement walls into the patented WaterGuard® drainage system below. 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 aforementioned TripleSafe™.

Structural Damage & More in Lethbridge, AB

Lethbridge is the eleventh driest city in Canada and has a semi-arid climate — or a dry environment that usually experiences low precipitation. Temperatures average at 12.8 °C with a minimum of −1.1 °C. Precipitation levels average at 380.2 mm with 264 dry days. The cold, dry environment can wreak havoc on the home foundation, causing issues like:

  • Foundation settlement: Dry environments usually experience issues with foundation settlement. As the soils dry out and shrink, this creates voids for the home to sink into. Foundation settlement can lead to floor and wall cracks, which can ultimately cause leaks and moisture intrusion. To resolve foundation settlement and prevent future movement, we install foundation piers that extend beneath the home, contacting strong supporting soils that will permanently stabilize your structure.
  • Home mold: Since Lethbridge is also cold, homes are usually more sealed and hold heat better. If the home has improper ventilation, the humidity can lead to condensation, causing mold, mildew, and rotting. Leaving these moisture problems unchecked can eventually cause structural damage, such as weakened floor joists, sagging floors, and foundation cracks. We provide self-draining dehumidifers to prevent humidity and condensation.
  • Moisture intrusion: Foundation settlement, rotting floor joists, and other structural damages can lead to foundation cracks, allowing moisture intrusion and leaks. Our sump pumps, French drain systems, vapor barrier, and other crawl space and basement waterproofing solutions keep moisture out and the below-grade space dry.
  • Structural damage: Foundation settlement, rotting floor joists, sagging floors, and foundation cracks are some of the issues caused by ongoing dry, cold weather. With wall anchors, foundation crack repairs, crawl space jacks, and other foundation repair solutions, we can fix structural damage and ensure the structural integrity of your home for years to come.

Job Stories From Lethbridge, AB
Foundation Stabilization in Lethbridge, AB

A homeowner in Southern Alberta called our office with concerns that their home was settling. They were experiencing issues with their doors opening and closing and their stairwell walls moving into the ceiling above. Our Appointment Center arranged for one of our knowledgeable System Design Specialists to visit the home. During their FREE, no obligation appointment, our System Design Specialist found the basement floor was heaving, which was causing cracks in the floor to appear and there were horizontal cracks in the foundation.

All of these findings lead us to conclude the home was, in fact, settling. After more investigation, measurements, engineering and permits our Production team was ready to go to work! They installed a total of 32 Push Piers, a full waterproofing system, which included a SuperSump® sump pump system, a new basement floor and more.

The installation went perfectly! Our crew was able to lift the home up to FOUR INCHES in some areas and most importantly stabilize the entire home to ensure the homeowners don’t have to worry about their home settling again. We’d like to send a big thank you to the homeowners for taking such great care of the crew while they were on site, they are still talking about the baking they enjoyed almost daily!

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 their concerns.

Carbon Armor Reinforces Crack in Lethbridge, AB

This homeowner in Calgary, Alberta contacted us due to a crack leaking in his foundation that he had a different contractor come out to repair but seemed to of not helped with the situation. 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. 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 went to the home to 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.

Wall Stabilized Utilizing Wall Anchors in Lethbridge, AB

This homeowner in Lethbridge, AB contacted us looking for a FREE, no obligation quote on a fix for her basement wall that was pushing in and had some cracks in it. Foundation walls are designed to support loads from above, not from the side. When side pressure on your walls exceeds their ability to withstand the force, they will begin to crack, bow, slide in at the bottom, and/or tilt in at the top. Rebuilding damaged walls may seem like the obvious (and expensive) answer, but even new walls will fail if the soil conditions are not changed.

Once the homeowner called Doug Lacey's Basement Systems an appointment was arranged for a System Design Specialist to visit the home and provide her with the best option for repair that we provide for this specific situation. Once the quote was finalized our Production team was able to go to the home to get to work! 

Wall anchors were the best solution to fix the problem. Walls can counteract soil pressure by anchoring walls to stable, undisturbed soil outside your home. Thanks to threaded rods that extend through the wall, wall anchors were used in this case to straighten the wall again over time. The homeowner called wanting a fix to permanently stabalize this wall to provide peace of mind that the house is stable and to insure she maintains property value for a future sale and she got just that!
