The first sign of a problem was watermarks along the lower portion of the drywall
After sealing the crack we installed a layer of vapour barrier and an in-floor drain as a failsafe
These holes are used for pouring concrete during construction, but over time they tend to leak
Our flexible polyurethane sealant provides a watertight seal over the hole
There are few things that can turn you off of finishing your basement more than seepage. You weigh the odds in your head whether it’s worth it or not, but in the end, waterproofing the space is the best choice.
A customer in Uxbridge, Ontario, reached out to Clarke Basement Systems after finding water in the corner of her basement. She was concerned it would lead to mould growth, and she had no idea how to locate the source.
System Design Specialist Chris Luke met with the anxious client and inspected her home. Chris put her worries to rest after finding the leaks and explaining how we could permanently waterproof the space.
Foreman Mark Dougherty started he repair by removing drywall in the corner of the room. This exposed a large crack right in the corner, and a leaking form tie hole next to it. Mark sealed both leaks using our FlexiSpan® Crack Repair System and dug a small in-floor drain as a failsafe.
The customer is thrilled that her basement is repaired. She can finish the rest of the space without having to worry, and appreciates the honest, hard work from Chris and Mark.
