Some home repairs we look forward to working on, while others we can’t wait to get over with and move along.
In Georgetown, Ontario, a customer reached out to us to deal with a water seepage problem in their basement. Water was seeping in through the centre of the floor where cracks had formed in the concrete, and the customer was concerned about long-term damage.
After meeting with System Design Specialist Don Clarke, the customer was ready to set up a date for the repair.
Foreman Rob Trevisan dug a lateral ditch throughout the floor where he installed our WaterGuard® Drain System. The drain was run to a TripleSafe® Sump Pump, and we added an UltraSump® Battery Backup for peace of mind. Lastly, the walls were encapsulated with ThermalDry® Wall Membrane to both seal and insulate the walls.
The customer is thrilled with how quickly the entire repair process went and he appreciates the hard work from the entire Clarke Basement Systems team.
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.
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.
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.
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!
