Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Commercial Building Waterproofing by Clarke Basement Systems
Store owners contacted Clarke Basement Systems for help with the basement of their store in Toronto, ON. Water was finding its way in during times of heavy rain, and the problem seemed to be getting worse and worse over time. System Design Specialist Ben Wallis created a well-suited solution so that the store above would not undergo mould growth and become a health hazard for customers or employees.
The solution started with our patented WaterGuard® will perform as a perimeter drainage system. Next, the crew encapsulated the area to protect the space from moisture and mould buildup with our CleanSpace® vapour barrier system. They connected the WaterGuard® to a floor drain in the centre of the room that is linked to an exterior discharge line. Finally, they placed a SuperSump® System to assure them of proper drainage. After the crew was done with the installations, the store owners were glad they used CBS to look after their place. They no longer had to worry about mould growth or any water damage that could have closed their store in the future!
