SPRING: WATER INFILTRATION PERIOD
In Quebec, spring is the period where the most water infiltration situations occur. This unfortunate phenomenon’s main root is cracks caused by:
- The climate change of our seasons (freeze, thaw) that create sudden movement of the ground, where water will circulate in an unpredictable manner.
- Bad draining.
- Foundation wear.
If the owners do not take appropriate measures to prevent the inevitable water infiltrations, cracks will most likely expand. Over the years, they could end up causing very important and expensive damages. According to the Insurance Bureau of Canada, such water damages are the first cause of home insurance claims in Quebec.
Therefore, it is important to call Lesage Excavation’s experts for the inspection of your residence. They are qualified to locate the cracks in your foundations or any other situation that can cause water to infiltrate your house (broken drain, non-waterproof exterior cladding, terrain with a negative slope, etc.). If this is the case, the appropriate measures will be applied to solve the situation quickly. Whether it is for the waterproofing of foundation with an elastomeric membrane, polyurethane injections to repair cracks, levelling of your terrain, or the installation of a new draining system, Lesage Excavation has the solution for water to stay out of your house!
