Wet Basement Causes Financial Stress in Toronto, Ontario

Making a large purchase and not getting what you paid for is stressful and frustrating. Nobody likes to be ripped off or lied to, but it happens far more often than it should.

A customer in Toronto, Ontario, bought a home with the intent of renting the basement. The basement was newly finished, but soon after moving in, he discovered water was soaking the walls and floor.

The homeowner reached out to Clarke Basement Systems and was understandably frustrated with the situation. He wanted to start generating a rental income as soon as possible and didn’t know how to repair his home.

System Design Specialist Ron Monk met with the homeowner and put some of his concerns to rest. Ron designed a full waterproofing system installed by Foreman Jose Martinez and Installation Specialist Trevor Bowman.

The team encapsulated the walls with ThermalDry® Wall Membrane and installed a WaterGuard® Drain System. These two products work together by guiding water to the new SuperSump® Sump Pump, where it’s expelled from the basement. A TrenchDrain® was used to collect any surface water near the stairs, and an IceGuard® Discharge Line was installed to keep water flowing regardless and any freezing in the line.

With his basement dry, the customer is looking forward to generating a rental income. He appreciates the work done by our team and is looking forward to many years as a landlord.
