French drains help prevent water, humidity and mold infiltration in your home. In Longueuil just as in its surrounding areas, the ever-changing weather, for example, the snowstorms and extreme colds of winter, as well as the torrential rain of spring, can damage your foundations. For that reason, having a robust french drain is indispensable.
In addition to the replacement of your French drains, in the event of water damage, our team in Longueuil will also provide you with the necessary repairs to your foundations. It would undeniably be wise of you to be wary of cracks for they indicate that damage has already been done. For that reason, we plug the clefts in a few steps.
First, holes are pierced at regular intervals on the inside wall of your foundations. Then, these holes are cleaned so that we can insert injection sleeves. With the help of a pump that we connect to the sleeves, we inject expansive polymer at over 3000 lbs of pressure. With this extreme force, the product can slip deep into the concrete and in the smallest splits. This optimizes the sealing of your foundations. We guarantee, with this method, that our repair work will last for at least 10 years.
Moreover, to prevent water accumulation, we install watertight membranes that will cover your foundations. As a first step, we will remove all dirt and moisture from its exterior surface. Next, we will spray an elastomeric membrane to the below-grade portion of the foundation to then apply a waterproof Delta membrane. If clefts had been found, we will add elastomeric protections for permanent sealing.
