Job Stories From Sylvan Lake, AB
Crawl Space encapsulation is Sylvan Lake

This homeowner in Sylvan Lake, AB encountered issues with mold and dampness in their crawl space. Wanting to protect their home investment and eliminate the issues with a permanent 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 designed specific to address all of their concerns.

Our Production Team was then able to then come to the home to install our CleanSpace® crawl space vapor barrier encapsulation to prevent moisture from passing through the floors. This durable liner will allow for servicemen to use the space without damage while transforming your crawl space into usable storage space. To remove excess moisture, the SaniDry™ energy efficient, self-draining crawl space dehumidifier was installed. This crawl space dehumidifier system includes a filter that removes particles from the air as small as 2 microns which ensures that the crawl space is protected from mold, dust mites, and mildew damage!

Radon Mitigation System Installed to Ease Homeowners Mind, Sylvan Lake AB

This homeowner in Calgary, Alberta performed a radon test in her basement and found the levels to be over 400 Bq/M3. 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 and provide her with a FREE, no obligation quote designed specific to address all of her concerns. 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 vent it outside of the home.

Found carpet was wet on our basement. I tore out the drywall and found some wet spots and what looks like practically rotted wood. Area of concern is in the corner of the basement where concrete meets wood. Insulation had some black spots. We recently bought this house and it looks like this issue has been happening for some time

I have an old house (1946) that I am renovating and have gutted the inside. The basement is completely gutted and I would like to see about getting some kind of interior weeping tile system and sump just to be safe from any future water problems. The sooner, the better as I have a renter planning to move in on the 25th. Thanks, Blair

At times our sump pump runs every 10 minutes. Obviously it wouldn't take long to flood the basement if the pump was not running. We have no back up in case of power outage.

Musty smell in crawlspace

I had a 6" wooden sub floor in my basement which has been torn out and is down to the dirt. I would like a quote to have weeping tile installed around the inside with a sump pump and then have the floor poured with concrete
Project Location: Sylvan Lake, AB
Good morning, We have had a few issues with water in our crawl space as well as what we think is mould (are uncertain about his part). Due to heavy rains lately we have had what is almost like a spring come up at the south end of our crawl space. I have installed a sump in that area but would like to have the bigger issue of an always damp space repaired. The floor (sand over clay) is always moist and though it is covered with poly, we are not sure that it is a reliable damp-proofer, especially since it is riddled with small tears and is not sealed along the joint of the poly. We have a weeping system inside the foundation wall (installed before we bought the home last year but are unsure as to it's effectiveness). There is also a pump that appears to be faulty which is located under our humidifier system. We are right beside the lake and understand that water issues may creep in now and then, but would like a professional opinion on what we can do to alleviate our concerns and possibly make the crawl space a safe and DRY storage area for our home. Thank you.

At lest two of the four cinder black basement walls are bowing inward most likely due to hydro-static pressure. Landscaping can minimize the pressure but looking for solution to stop and reverse/repair bowing basement walls. Wondering if Geo-Lock Wall Anchor System is viable option.

We Have a house in Drumheller with a concrete block foundation. Many of the blocks have tilted inwards causing parts of the house to be unsupported.
