    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!!!!!

              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.

    Waterproofing a Basement to Renovate, Toronto, ON


    A home in Toronto, Ontario, had a problem in the basement. The homeowner wanted to finish the basement but the walls and floor were always damp. The customer also wanted to install a heated floor and wanted to gain headroom. The homeowner didn't think they would be able to refinish the basement because it was always damp, and they wanted to be sure that their investment was going to be protected. 

    The customer called Clarke Basement Systems and Ron Monk explained the solution we had come up with for the home. Don Clarke and the team came in and installed Waterguard sub-floor perimeter drainage system, Waterguard port, Thermaldry wall system, SuperSump and UltraSump sump system and Iceguard discharge. 

    The Waterguard captures water at the footing wall joint and drains the water to the SuperSump/UltraSump sump system. The Thermaldry wall membrane helps reduce relative humidity and ensure wall leaks and any moisture are drained into the Waterguard installed in the floor.  The SuperSump and UltraSump is a 2 pump sump system. It protects against pump failure and power loss to the home. It is installed with the Iceguard that protects the system in cold weather. 

    The customer was happy because they were able to refinish the basement knowing the whole basement was going to stay dry. The homeowner was also very confident with Basement Systems 25 year dry basement warranty against groundwater seepage and was satisfied that it is nationally backed through the Basement Systems dealer network, transferable if the home is ever sold.

This is a normal issue to deal with when dealing with home basement.  We installed SuperSump under the staircase as well as IceGuard on the exterior and a WaterGuard around the perimeter to keep water away from the basement. Lastly we installed ThermalDry wall membrane to keep moisture and cold out and keep heat in. The customer can now confidently restore their basement to a healthy, dry and usable space!

Exterior Excavation

Heavy equipment is brought in to dig out the entire perimeter of the basement. New drain lines are installed, and sometimes a waterproof coating is applied to foundation walls. This waterproofing strategy is expensive and often damages lawn and garden areas. Exterior drains are prone to clogging with silt and roots over time.

Interior Subfloor Drain

This drain line is installed underneath the basement floor, just inside the foundation walls. The hidden drainage system brings water to a sump pit, where a sump pump automatically pumps it outside. Also known as a French Drain, this system is not prone to clogging; it’s reliable and easy to service.

Interior Baseboard System

A hollow plastic baseboard is installed along the base of basement walls to form a drainage channel that directs water to a sump pump system. A baseboard-type drainage system is sometimes recommended when the basement slab is too thin to accommodate a French Drain.

Negative-side Sealant

This waterproofing technique involves "painting" basement walls and floors with a waterproof, cement-based coating that's supposed to seal out moisture. Even when applied correctly, this thin membrane usually fails in response to prolonged hydrostatic pressure from outside the foundation.
