Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Crawlspace Troubles, Dorset, ON

Tuesday, July 18th, 2017 by Robert Langton


A Cottage owner in Dorset, Ontario, had to spend a day airing out their cottage every time they went up because of the smell. This smell was caused by an unhealthy crawlspace due to moisture and water leakage. The customer tried to lay down different types of plastic in the crawlspace  to control the earths moisture but nothing could keep the moisture away. 


After many attempts to stop the moisture and frustration of a smelly cottage the customer decided to call Clarke Basement Systems to solve the problem. To lock away the earths moisture from the cottage we installed CleanSpace and encapsulated the entire Crawlspace. We installed DrainMatting to create a thermobreak and add to the durability of the CleanSpace. Lastly put in the SmartDrain to drain any leaks with a WaterWatch alarm to alert the cottage owner in case of any flooding. Now the cottage owner no longer has to spend time airing out the cottage and they can rest easy knowing there is no water leakage.
