Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Wet Basement Postpones Renovation in Uxbridge, Ontario

Wednesday, February 5th, 2020 by Dan Koehler


Before you start a big renovation, you want to make sure there aren’t any surprises to uncover. Unplanned repairs can be costly, so due diligence before a reno is important.


A customer in Uxbridge, Ontario, did just that when they reached out to Clarke Basement Systems. They were planning on finishing their basement but wanted to fix their water issue first.


System Design Specialist Chris Luke met with the customer at his home and inspected the basement. He discovered water was leaking through the floor/wall joint and the walls, so he designed an encapsulation and drain system.


Foreman Luke Haverkort was tasked with installing the system. Luke started by encapsulating the walls with ThermalDry® Wall Membrane. This stops water from leaking into the room by guiding it down to a drain system. To remove the water from the basement a full perimeter of our WaterGuard® Drain System was installed.


The customer is thrilled about the new waterproofing system. They can’t wait to start renovating and can do so knowing their basement is protected with a warranty.
