Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Resuming The Work
The basement is almost complete! Our previous clients in Cobourg, Ontario, had called us to waterproof another wall downstairs. The homeowners found it very frustrating every time they came down the stairs, they would step into a pool of water. So it was a no-brainer as to who to call, Clarke Basement Systems. Our experienced System Design Specialist, Chris Luke, returned to the home and quoted the same products and materials as last time, but this work area is much smaller. The homeowners crafted a floating shelf unit that must be removed before we began the work.
Once everything was cleared out, our installation specialist, Lucio Flores, came to the home and began. The products used were the CleanSpace® wall membrane and our WaterGuard® perimeter drainage system. The CleanSpace® will keep the water from entering the basement and have it trickle down into the WaterGuard® at the wall's footing. The perimeter drainage system connects to the sump pump, which had already been installed in the past. The job took less than half a day since the perimeter drainage system had to be connected to the rest, and the shelves were already removed.
