Cracks in your home foundation?
Have you noticed cracks in the foundation of your home? Or perhaps worse, water leaking in your basement?
Cracks in a homes foundation may be caused by temperature shifts (freezing to thawing and vice versa), an unstable or uneven landscape or a defective drainage system around your homes foundation.
Our team of expert foundation contractors can estimate the health and overall condition of your foundation to help you choose a repair method that best suits your specific situation.
To give you an idea of the type of work we do, here is an example of what we might do in a situation involving a home with several small hairline cracks throughout it. Typically, when carrying out the repair of a houses foundation, we dig around the house using a mini excavation machine.
Then, we clean any and all visible cracks and inject a product that infiltrates, thoroughly fills them (using an epoxy) and that finally seals them. These repairs are a durable and cost effective way to assure the health of your foundation for a long time to come.
Cracks caused by a bad water drainage system or an inexistent one…
If you don’t have a French drain, while on the premises, we will often strongly suggest that you consider having one installed while we are on the site. Why? As the foundation walls are exposed and we have dug deep around your home, this is an opportune time to install French drains that by carrying water away from your home, will help prevent any future damage to your foundation from worsening over time due to water exposure.
Paysagiste Ricardi have the expertise and equipment required to do all excavation work required to install a French drain, why not take advantage? A properly installed French drain will put an end to problems of humidity and water leaking into the basement.
Note that most of the homes built in Montreal before 1960 do not have a French drain! If you are in a home built before 1960, consider the installation of a French drain today.
If you do have a drainage system in place, an inspection will allow us and you to identify the reasons why it may not be working effectively. After a complete inspection of your drainage system, we can then prepare an estimate to repair the drain, should you like us to.
