    I can't be more thankful and happy with my service. I'm blown away by the professionalism that is so unfortunately rare in the residential contracting industry. Clarke Basement Systems gave me a fair quote, completed the job on time with great finishing work and pleasant, professional staff. I couldn't have asked for anything more.

    Very happy with this company. It is SO hard these days to find people to work with who keep their word ! This company does ! They don't abandon you. They keep in touch and they keep you informed. Before, during and after. Very impressed !!! Thanks folks ! :) I have had to wait forever to have a worry free dry basement. My water issue was unpredictable. My space was live-able but we lived cautiously and with "what if's." It is going to take time to gain trust that this system will work because it has been a long time since we have been able to rely on having a dry basement. The warranty and peace of mind from the people that work for this company are priceless! Do it ! Live with a dry basement!

    Customer Testimonial

              After living in her home for 25 years, this year my Mum got a bit of water in her basement which freaked her out and upset her greatly. After doing research I decided to call 2 companies to obtain 2 estimates to get this situation taken care of for her. Mum is 86!! The first company, really, did not even want to take the time to even talk to me, or come out to her home! He said I will email you some information (which he never did). Sigh. My next call was to Clarke Basement Systems and what a breath of fresh air it was. From the service, to reception, to the Sales Person to our OUTSTANDING CREW, which was headed by ROB .... we were treated so well. Many calls to confirm, to reschedule due to a storm and follow up. Mum and I are thrilled and really really want to comment and THANK ROB and his team for their hard word, respectfulness of Mum's home and doing a fine job. When they were leaving a neighbour came out and he will be calling for an appointment too. You can tell Rob LOVES his work, what a funny guy and so knowledgeable. Thanks again. GO ROB!!!!!

    Customer Testimonial

              i want to thank Matt for coming by and fixing those little holes in our new crawlspace floor covering before they became big holes. I also appreciate the roll of tape he left so we can catch other little tears and holes in the coming years before they too become larger problems. Still love going down there and NOT smelling the earthy damp smell which we used to experience! THANKS!

    Customer Testimonial

              Every time I contacted Clarke Basement, they were on time and returned any calls promptly, and if i had any questions they answered the questions personally. I believe the job was done very professionally and the two installers had no problem with me watching them doing the work and answered any question I had. I'd recommend Clark Basement Systems to almost anyone!

    Gary M. of Mississauga, ON

    Customer Testimonial

              There was a corner in the basement of Gary M.'s Mississauga, ON home where a water puddle would mysteriously form every time it rained. Gary was puzzled by the fact that there were no other signs of water intrusion on the walls or ceiling. After doing some research online, he called Clarke Basement Systems for help. In this video we speaks about the entire experience, from the first inspection all the way through completion Gary is also very happy with the results. His basement is now dry all the time, rain or shine.

    Joni of Toronto, ON

    Customer Testimonial

              We had a small leak in our basement window and when we opened up the dry wall to find out the source of the leak we found that there was a bunch of mold behind the drywall and as we took off more and more drywall we found more and more mold. And we have small children so obviously this was a big concern for us. So we ended up taking off all the drywall in our basement and in the process we found that the basement had leaks all over our basement. Originally, we thought we would have to do some sort of outside drainage system. But we were refrred to Clarke and Clarke was able to offer a system from the inside of our basement that would essentially tell the water that we're not going to try to keep you out - if you have to come in, then come in but were going to channel that water where we can bring it to a sump pump and pump it out of our house and keep out basement 100% dry. We had a great experience with Clarke Basement Systems. They were extremeley knowledgeable. They were really professional. I love their confidence. I'd ask them questions like ' if we ever have water down the road..' and their answer would be: 'You're not going to have water down the road'. And I just loved that there was any sense of doubt. They knew their system worked. They were very professional. They explained everything very very clearly and they started the job exactly when they said they would start, they finished when they said they would finish it. They cleaned up every day. They were friendly. They were kind to my kids and they were really a pleasure to work with. I would absolutely recommend Clarke to my friends. It's amazing because I told my friends when we first came to this house there was kind of an off smell to the basement. We just sort of thought this is how basements are - they're damp, they have funny smells, they're not like the rest of the house. Now that they've been down there and they've done their work, our basement is dry as a bone. It smells like a regular room in our house and we feel completely confident that we're not going to have any water and we can go back to living our lives and enjoying the space again.

    Trevor K. of Toronto, ON

    Customer Testimonial

              Hi Paul, I wanted to give you a big thank you for pulling together a team of professionals for our interior basement waterproofing project. As you are aware during our basement renovation we came across water on one wall of the basement. Having already done an exterior solution we opted for the interior solution for final peace of mind. Paul Mendell (our Project Manager from Clarke Basement Systems) was able to review the area and along with his production team (Rob Trevisan) was able to pull a team of three people (led by Jose Martinez) together within very short notice in order to get the work done in one day! The work was done in a timely matter, was clean and efficient, with little disruption to the other basement renovations that were happening at the same time. This far exceeded our expectation and allowed us to move forward with the balance of the basement project! Thank you again for helping us and providing such a quick turnaround.

    Customer Testimonial

              I would like to take this opportunity to extend my contentment and satisfaction towards your team of professionals. Alex introduced me to your company and with Cory's support was able to close the deal for the 3 projects that I have on the go. They, along with your scheduling team, were eager to meet our deadlines. Upon completion of the work on hand, I felt there could have been a little bit more attention paid to details, although I had no concerns to quality given your warranty on the project. Alex was quick to visit and report back to Cory who in turn put me in touch with your production manager. Upon discussing the issues, your Senior Service Tech. was sent to the site where we met. Fitz’s assessment and performance was of a true professional ... recognizing, explaining, addressing and instilling on his assistant important lessons on quality and customer service. From one business owner to another, I would like to congratulate you on your staff and projection of professionalism that I experienced. I would have no problem whatsoever recommending you, your company and more so your associates for a job well done, excellent concepts of customer service and a follow up worthy of your pride as representatives of your company.

              Scheduled for 8:30am July 11. Matt arrived on time - in fact a little early, which was great - got to work immediately. Obviously knew his stuff, explained what all he did and how the system responded. Left me confident that all was well. Matt is a personable, pleasant individual. You've hired a good one, and Fitz's training has paid off. Well done - all 'round! - Cheers

    Customer Testimonial

              After being satisfied with previous waterproofing services performed by Clarke Basement Systems, Jim from Markham, Ontario decided to call us when he discovered a wet carpet in his basement. Rather than just fixing the problem, our specialists were able to inspect the home’s water issues and suggest solutions, including perimeter drainage and proper use of a window well. Jim is now educated on how to prevent future water problems and is able to enjoy a dry basement!

Case Studies I've worked on:

Before and after photos from jobs I've worked on:
  • Supersump with Ultra Sump Battery Back Up System
    Before
    Supersump with Ultra Sump Battery Back Up System
    After

    This homeowner's previous sump pump was nasty and dangerous.  It was hard to believe that it was functional at all but furthermore; a deep, big hole such as this one poses a great danger to children and adults alike as there is nothing that covers the opening.

    Our SuperSump® Premier Sump Pump System resolves the above issues. With a state of the art sump pump liner and two-piece lid for easy access and safety and an UltraSump® Battery Back-Up System which features an alarm to alert the homeowner of pump failure, this system covers all the bases. 

  • Wet Basement in Cookstown, ON
    Before
    Wet Basement in Cookstown, ON
    After

    A customer wanted extra protection from water damage and flooding. A WaterGuard® Below-Floor Drain was installed around the hot water tank leaving the basement neat and dry. 

  • Replaced Sump Pump to Save Flooded Basement in Belle Ewart, ON
    Before
    Replaced Sump Pump to Save Flooded Basement in Belle Ewart, ON
    After

    A home in Belle Ewart, Ontario, had flooding in the basement. The exterior weeping tile had failed due to clogging from an iron ochre formation. Iron ochre forms when iron in soil oxidizes, coming into contact with water. This problem caused the drainage system outside the home to fail and allowing water to drain into the basement. Over time the basement was becoming more and more damaged due to flooding. The homeowner could no longer store personal items, and the basement was becoming mouldy. 

    The customer called Clarke Basement System and spoke to Ron Monk who explained the process we would do to fix the problem. Rob Trevisan and the team came in and installed a MoistureLoc Dehumidifier to direct any water and moisture into the newly installed WaterGuard® IOS sub-floor perimeter drainage system. The WaterGuard® then pushes any access water into the freshly established Sump pump where is it then pushed out the IceGuard® and away from the house. The sump pump was introduced to replace the old sump pump that was no longer doing the job of keeping the basement dry. 

    The customer was delighted that they were able to waterproof their basement right and have the peace of mind that their basement would no longer flood. The homeowner was also pleased with our 25-year dry basement nationally backed warranty against groundwater seepage.

    Before
    CleanSpace® Transforms Nasty Crawl Space!
    After

    This customer was tired of cold floors and a musty smell in their vacation home. Also, there was lots of space in the crawlspace for storage, but they could not utilize it as it was always damp and filthy. 

     We installed our patented CleanSpace® Vapour Barrier on the walls and over the damp dirt floor. The last step was spray foam application between the floor joist to help seal out the moist air. Problem solved permanently!
