Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Flooded Basement in West Guildford, ON

Thursday, July 20th, 2017 by Robert Langton


The customers had a brand new foundation poured under there old cottage. In less than one year the drainage system failed and they came back from vacation to find 12 inches of water in there finished basement. The challenge for Clarke Basement Systems was to handle the volume of water in the spring and to keep the whole basement dry permanently. 


To fix this home in West Guilford we installed a second sump system; our SmartSump that provides all the protection you need from leaks and floods as well as an alarm to notify the homeowner if there is any leaks. We install a full perimeter WaterGuard Drainage System to keep the whole basement dry and added a Discharge line on the exterior of the home. Now the customer can leave the home without worrying about flooding in the basement.
