We had a small leak in our basement window and when we opened up the dry wall to find out the source of the leak we found that there was a bunch of mold behind the drywall and as we took off more and more drywall we found more and more mold. And we have small children so obviously this was a big concern for us. So we ended up taking off all the drywall in our basement and in the process we found that the basement had leaks all over our basement. Originally, we thought we would have to do some sort of outside drainage system. But we were refrred to Clarke and Clarke was able to offer a system from the inside of our basement that would essentially tell the water that we're not going to try to keep you out - if you have to come in, then come in but were going to channel that water where we can bring it to a sump pump and pump it out of our house and keep out basement 100% dry.
We had a great experience with Clarke Basement Systems. They were extremeley knowledgeable. They were really professional. I love their confidence. I'd ask them questions like ' if we ever have water down the road..' and their answer would be: 'You're not going to have water down the road'. And I just loved that there was any sense of doubt. They knew their system worked. They were very professional. They explained everything very very clearly and they started the job exactly when they said they would start, they finished when they said they would finish it. They cleaned up every day. They were friendly. They were kind to my kids and they were really a pleasure to work with. I would absolutely recommend Clarke to my friends. It's amazing because I told my friends when we first came to this house there was kind of an off smell to the basement. We just sort of thought this is how basements are - they're damp, they have funny smells, they're not like the rest of the house. Now that they've been down there and they've done their work, our basement is dry as a bone. It smells like a regular room in our house and we feel completely confident that we're not going to have any water and we can go back to living our lives and enjoying the space again.
