Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Crawl Space Makeover
These homeowners in Aurora, Ontario, had water coming up and around the entire perimeter of their basement creating a musty, wet smell that did not sit right with them. When they investigated, the homeowners discovered where the problem was coming from, their crawl space. A big fear of theirs was the air quality and the potential to make their place unliveable. With other concerns like their home's value and the depreciation that comes with mold and its long-term effects, these Aurora homeowners called up Clarke Basement Systems to get the help they needed.
Installation professional Lucio Flores and his crew first placed a CleanSpace® wall membrane to seal off moisture in the interior of the crawl space. Next, they used window wells to assist the basement with the drainage of unwanted water. Then, a WaterGuard® was placed below the floor level to guide water leaking from the floor and wall joints of a basement. Finally, the team installed one of our most trusted and patented sump systems, known as our SuperSump®.
When Lucio and his team finished the job, the homeowners were thrilled with the turnout. Who would have thought that a crawl space could look so clean and bright?!
