Luba R in Scotland, On needed waterproofing in her Scotland, On home. Omni Basement Systems recommended our patented drain system, WaterGuard and our very own Triplesafe Sump pump.
Waterguard is a sub-floor drainage system that collects water from the footing/wall joint and under the floor and drain it down to the sump pump system. To prevent future leaks from the walls and to reflect radiant heat back into the room, Omni installed ThermalDry wall membrane. The silver coating acts as a radiant barrier.

Melissa and Brian have a house in Glen Morris, On that needs waterproofing because they want to finish the basement. Phill from Omni Basement Systems recommended an interior drainage system as well as our own Basement-to-Beautiful (B2B) insulated panels.
The B2B panels are foam panels that also act as your frame work to finish. They feature metal studs built right in to hang the drywall on and electrical chases so you can do the electrical later without cutting holes in the finished walls. These panels must be covered with a fire rated panel such as Drywall.
Kari R Moved into their new house 11 years ago and started noticing cracks in the foundation and brick work. since the house was new they contacted the builder and they had a basement wall crack fixed by another company through Tarion warantee. The cracks on the exterior got more noticeable and a crack on the concrete slab floor was present. The customer contacted a contractor before calling Omni Basement systems but they could not help.
The customer then called Omni Basement Systems and one of our highly trained estimators came to see her. After a thorough inspection of the house and foundation and hiring an Engineer to assisit with design of a sytem, Omni was ready to go ahead with resolving her issues.
What Omni Basement Systems determined was that one side of the house had settled and had dropped.
The solution was to install Foundation Supportworks inc Push Pier supplementary support systems to support the footing from settling any further. Once this was installed on the customers foundation wall, Omni Basement systems was able to apply force to not only support the foundation but lift it back into original position.
The customer is very pleased with the result and the workmanship on the job and with communication with our staff members.

Robert V. had just purchased him home and he noticed the Sump was outdated and did not trust it could keep up with flow. Also he had no battery back up system and the open lid sump was placed in a closet which could lead to mold from moisture coming out of the sump.
Phill at Omni Basement Systems recommended our SuperSump Plus and an UltraSump battery Back-up System. The Super SUmp features an airtight lid and a large Liner to accomadate an extra pump if required. The Sump ssytem also features the Zoeller M63 pump
Cayuga area is famous for bad soil conditions. Omni likes to call it "Haldimand Clay" When there is a wall crack in a poured foundation in this area, Our reps have to determine whether it is just a waterproofing job or it needs some structural attention as well.
In this case, the crack was large enough and had some deflection in the wall as well that Phill recommended some carbon Armor stitches before waterproofing. The Carbon Armor stitch is Carbon Fibre fabrick which is epoxied to the wall across the crack to strengthen the wall from futher bowing (deflection)
In these photos, the before and after the carbon armor is applied. They do not show the final waterproofing membrane applied over top.
Gabriel T need to upgrade their sump in their crawlspace. To reduce the amount of moisture, they also needed a custom lid to seal any moisture from coming out of the sump jole.
