Water and Mold in a Finished Basement in Markham, ON

Water and Mold in a Finished Basement in Markham, ON Water and Mold in a Finished Basement in Markham, ON

This 1970's home located in central Markham, ON had a fully finished basement, the old block foundation had some nasty issues that were lurking behind the drywall. It started off with the customer noticing a small patch of damp drywall, a few days later a small puddle appeared on the floor along the same wall but in a different location it was then they realized they needed to call in the professionals. The homeowners were puzzled, never having a leak in the basement before and not knowing what was happening. We sent out our local inspector to take a look and see if he could help to source the leak and provide a solution. The homeowners decided to start removing drywall in the area that was wet to prevent mold growth. Our inspector showed up and the bottom of the drywall was already removed, he quickly noticed that the bottom few rows of block were very wet, and some even had mold growth already. With a solution in mind he explained to the homeowner what was happening, why it was happening and what we could do to fix this issue. It didn't take long for the work to get started and when it did it was a matter of hours before the issue was dealt with. We went in removed the bottom few feet of drywall and studding, installed the WaterGuard interior trench drainage along the footings and put up ThermalDry moisture barrier wall membrane to catch and control the water. Now that the water issue is dealt with the homeowner has re-finished the bottom few feet of drywall and is now back to being the recreation room for the family to enjoy.

After heavy rain a home in Markham, Ontario had water pooling on the concrete patio at the back of the house. There was also water flowing towards the foundation on the walkway at the side of the house. The homeowner was worried that the water would begin to make its way into the basement causing many other issues.
 
The Canadian Concrete Leveling team was able to lift all affected concrete by using our PolyLevel injection. There is no longer a 4 inch drop in the concrete and water will now flow away from the foundation. The customer is left with a safe, usable space and no longer has to worry about water pooling around their home and causing damage.

Job Stories From Markham, ON
Constant Water Leaks Repaired in Markham, ON Basement

After months of constant leaking in his basement, Markham, ON homeowner Rey C. decided enough was enough and began looking for waterproofing companies to service his basement.  Remembering a company from a home show he visited this spring, Rey decided to contact them for an estimate.

 

Rey contacted the professionals at Clarke Basement Systems and soon after, Clarke sent out Ron Monk to meet with Rey at his home and discuss solutions.  After evaluating the basement and the wall cracks, Ron discussed with Rey that the best course of action would be to install FlexiSpan.  Ron explained to Rey that FlexiSpan was a highly recommended wall sealant.  FlexiSpan is preferred over traditional sealants such as hydraulic cement because of its properties to not dry up or crack over time.  Additionally, FlexiSpan is designed to stretch and move with the naturally shifting motions of the walls to ensure the most protection out of the product.  After explaining the process that would be done to install the product, Ron called in Fitz Wilks, a primary foreman for Clarke Basement Systems to install the product.

 

Fitz completed the installation process over a day’s time and now Rey’s basement is safer than ever!  Thanks to the professionals at Clarke Basement Systems, FlexiSpan will effectively waterproof the home for years and years to come!

Basement Water Intrusion Remedied in Markham, ON

After a particularly heavy storm, Markham, ON homeowners Douglas and Vanla M. found that water was coming into their basement through an unknown source.  Curious to find out where it was coming from, the couple decided to research waterproofing companies that serviced their area.  They found Clarke Basement Systems and they contacted them that same day.

 

A couple of days after contacting them, Clarke sent out waterproofing specialist Ron Monk to evaluate the couple’s basement.  What Ron found as the unknown source was slight hairline cracks that were letting in moisture.  Although not a huge problem at the moment, if left unattended those cracks could grow and cause extensive damage to the walls and basement.  Luckily for the couple, Ron had an ideal solution for their situation.  Ron proposed installing Flexispan along the hairline cracks.  Flexispan is a polyurethane polymer which seals the cracks and effectively protects them from further intrusion of moisture and other outside elements.  Unlike traditional applications such as hydraulic cement or epoxies, Flexispan will not dry up or crack over time.  Additionally it is designed to bend, move and stretch with a naturally shifting foundation wall.  To install Flexispan, Ron called in primary foreman Fitz Wilks and his crew.

 

After a quick and easy one day installation process, Douglas and Vanla’s basement was no longer troubled by the hairline cracks that cursed it. Now they can look to the future knowing their basement troubles are a thing of the past.
