Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Leaking Finished Basement Soaks Toddler's Feet in Pickering, Ontario

Album Description

Many things can happen in a house that makes us go “uh oh.” It could be a failing appliance, chipped paint, or in some cases, a wet finished basement.

A customer in Pickering, Ontario, has a beautifully finished basement with a play area for her son. Recently, she noticed his socks were wet after spending a few minutes near one corner in particular. After some investigating, the homeowner realized she had a leak in her basement.

Frustrated and concerned, she decided to reach out to Clarke Basement Systems and met with System Design Specialist Mark Dougherty. Mark inspected the space, and determined water was coming up through the floor/wall joint due to hydrostatic pressure from the ground. He designed a system to keep the basement dry, and a date was set for the repair.

Foreman Lucio Flores and his crew, Installation Specialists Russell VanderMeulen and Dymytro Bohatyrov, started by digging a small trench around the perimeter. Our team installed our WaterGuard® Drain System in the trench and encapsulated the walls with ThermalDry® Wall Membrane.

The customer is thrilled that her basement is dry. Her son can continue to play without getting wet feet, and her home is protected from water damage.
