FRENCH DRAIN REPAIR
The installation of a French drain, mandatory in Quebec, is more than necessary for the proper drainage of your foundation.

For waterproofing work, Goudron Pagé uses a very high quality flexible water repellent membrane, offering a permanent, reliable and durable solution. The membrane we use dries to the touch in minutes, can be applied at temperatures as low as 5 ° C, offers high resistance to abrasion, impact and chemicals in addition to withstanding up to 2000% elongation.
DOES YOUR FRENCH DRAIN
A band of efflorescence visible at the base of the foundation wall inside the basement is caused by the presence of prominent water. This could be a high water table or pockets of water trapped in clay. The efflorescence band can also indicate a non-functioning drain. Several tests will be performed to find the cause of the problem.
Several workarounds are available in the event that it is not possible to carry out the work from the outside (balcony, terraced property), the drain can be installed inside, which will remove the water pressure in the ground just as an exterior drain would. If it is not possible to prevent water infiltration, a sump pit should be installed at the lowest point of the basement floor, which will lead the water to the sewer or ditch or drain it to the bottom. It is not advisable to dig an interior channel in the concrete slab at the perimeter of the exterior wall to direct water to the sump or a floor drain. Standing water will soak up the concrete and the humidity in the room will create mold problems.
