No one likes dealing with water in their basement, especially when it renders an entire room useless.
A customer in Oshawa, Ontario, had water coming in through her cold room ceiling every time it rained. She wanted to use the space to store food and items but was concerned about water damage. Fed up, she decided to call Clarke Basement Systems.
System Design Specialist Ryan Hanlon met the customer at her home and inspected the space. He showed her our Cold Room Solution, and she was excited to see a solution that would solve her problem.
Foreman Don Clarke installed the system in a single day’s work. The walls were encapsulated with R10 insulation, and CleanSpace® Vapour Barrier and a SmartDrain® was dug into the floor. Drainage Panelling was installed on the ceiling with a slight grade to drain water towards the back wall, and a vent was installed in the door to allow airflow.
The customer is thrilled that her cold room is finally dry. She can start using the space as she pleases and no longer has to clean water off of her floor.No one likes dealing with water in their basement, especially when it renders an entire room useless.

Peace of mind is something we all strive for. Whether it’s something small, like keeping the driveway cleared of snow in the winter, or something significant such as preventing your basement from flooding, it’s nice to have one less thing to worry about.
A customer in Stouffville, Ontario, was worried about the water in his basement. He had an old, no longer functioning sump pump in his basement that was producing a foul odour. Every time it rained, he had to bail the sump pump out using buckets to prevent his basement from flooding.
Tired of worrying and being a human sump pump, he reached out to Clarke Basement Systems for a solution. System Design Specialist Ryan Hanlon went to the home to inspect the old sump pump and review the customer’s options for a replacement
The customer decided to go with our SuperSump® Sump Pump to keep his basement dry. Foreman Lucio Flores installed the SuperSump® in the original pit where the broken sump pump was initially located and poured concrete around the new sump pump, giving it a finished look.
The customer is elated about their new sump pump. He no longer has to worry about his basement flooding, and his days of getting filthy and wet draining his old sump are long gone!
Who doesn’t love going to the cottage? From leaving work on a Friday afternoon to when you first walk through the door, we can’t wait to get away from it all and smell the fresh air.
For a customer in Fenelon Falls, Ontario, fresh air wasn’t all she was smelling. A broken, old sump pump was causing quite a stench in her cottage crawl space. The odour was spreading throughout the whole cottage and had become the main talking point when guests came to visit.
System Design Specialist Ryan Hanlon created a full waterproofing system for the customer that included a SmartSump® Sump Pump and an UltraSump® Battery Backup. Foreman Lucio Flores and his crew installed the products, removing not just water from the crawl space, but the musty smell too.
The customer is delighted that her cottage smells fresh once again. Her basement is waterproofed for many years to come, with a warranty too!
When you arrive at a cottage, the first thing you expect is the smell of nature as you get out of the car, and maybe a small fire burning in a wood stove. What you don’t expect is a musty smell coming from a crawl space, spreading throughout the entire cottage.
A customer in Fenelon Falls, Ontario, was dealing with a musty smelling basement. Water was entering the space, and the smell was starting to render the cottage unuseable.

The system included a complete encapsulation with CleanSpace® Vapour Barrier, and R20 Wall Membrane to insulate the space, installed by Foreman Lucio Flores.
The customer is thrilled that her basement is now waterproofed. Not only did we eliminate the smell, but we also blocked a hole in the foundation that raccoons were using as an entryway to the crawl space. Some unhappy raccoons but a very happy customer!
When you head up north to the cottage, the last thing you want to do when you get there is deal with a damp crawl space. The smell can be horrible, and the humidity can cause severe damage to the building.

The customer is delighted that she no longer needs to worry about damage to her cottage caused by moisture and mould, and the first thing she notices when she steps inside isn’t a musty smell.
