When the in-floor drain and sealant in place, Mark poured fresh concrete to bring the floor back to grade and give the repair a finished look
Any water that seeps in is directed down to the in-floor drain where it disperses into the ground water

There’s something special about a thunderstorm. It could be the sounds and light in the sky, or the feeling of warm rain falling. Whatever it is, people seem to enjoy the free show each summer nonetheless. But for some, thunderstorms mean it’s time to mop the basement.
A customer in Port Perry, Ontario, knew that every time it rained, a flooded basement was around the corner. The homeowner had been dealing with the leak since purchasing the home. It was time for a change. He reached out to Clarke Basement Systems and met with System Design Specialist Chris Luke.
Before coating the exterior with sealant, Foreman Mark Dougherty started the repair by injecting polyurethane sealant directly into the crack. He installed a drain into the floor and poured fresh concrete to bring the drain up to floor grade.
The customer is happy that his basement is finally dry. “Just wanted to say thanks for the appointment—such a positive experience. The contractor was great too. Really happy we found your company. I water tested yesterday and no trace of water. Thank you.”
