Water and moisture in the basement leads to mold and rot. We protect your Red Deer home by waterproofing your basement, repairing any leaks and preventing future basement flooding. To ensure a dry basement we install an interior drainage channel (weeping tile) that collects any entering water. The water drains to a high-volume sump pump where it is pumped out and away from the foundation of your home.
The basement waterproofing system is hidden and keeps your basement permanently dry. We can also install an energy-efficient basement dehumidifier to keep the relative humidity low enough to prevent mold growth. We know that our basement waterproofing system works and we provide a lifetime, dry-basement warranty on all perimeter waterproofing systems.
Just like in the basement, water and humidity in the crawl space can be a disaster. We can help. We lay down a layer of insulation on the crawl space ground and walls and then cover it with a thick vapor barrier. Water is kept out and air transfer is prevented. By sealing and encapsulating the crawl space, humidity and moisture can be better controlled.
We then install a dehumidifier designed specifically for crawl spaces to regulate the humidity and prevent mold growth. Our crawl space encapsulation system comes with a 25-year warranty.
We are Red Deer's experts for foundation repair and stabilization. Regardless of the foundation issue we have the right tools for the job from helical piles and helical piers to underpinning systems and push piers to wall anchors and crawl space support posts.
Before we begin work on your Red Deer home, one of our foundation repair experts will provide a free inspection of the foundation and explain the different options. The foundation repair products that we use have a 25-year warranty against manufacturing defects.
Along with traditional foundation repair we also lift and level sunken concrete slabs using an updated version of mudjacking (slab jacking). Traditionally mudjacking involves drilling large holes into the concrete slab and then pumping a pressurized concrete slurry beneath the slab. The pressure lifts the concrete back to its original position and then the slurry cures forming a solid base.
|We can Fix:
At Doug Lacey's Basement Systems, instead of using a mudslurry we use PolyLEVEL, an expansive, polyurethane foam. The foam is injected through much smaller holes in the slab. The foam expands to fill any empty space and then lifts the slab back to its original position. The foam puts much less stress on the foundation soil, is injected through much smaller holes, doesn't washout and cures much quicker than mud slurry.
We protect you and your family from the dangers of Radon. Radon is an odorless gas caused by uranium decay that can result in lung cancer if inhaled over a period of time. If you have high radon levels we can get started right away installing a radon mitigation system. Radon enters through the basement of your home so a hole is drilled into the basement wall and a PVC pipe is sealed to the hole creating a suction point for the gas. The PVC pipe runs out and up the exterior of your home. The gas is vented up the pipe and expelled safely away from your home.
