A home in Oshawa, Ontario had water leaking into the basement. There was water at floor wall joint as well as cracks on the foundation wall that had attempted to fix. The homeowners couldn't use their basement anymore due to mould and constant water making the area unhealthy. 

The customer called Clarke Basement Systems to fix their basement problems and make use of the space again. Steve Matthews, the inspector,  explained what we would be doing to correct these water issues. Lucio Flores and the team came in and installed a WaterGuard® Below-Floor Drain, CleanSpace® Vapour Barrier, TripleSafe™ Complete Sump pump and an IceGuard® Discharge Line System. The CleanSpace® was installed on all the walls keeping the moisture and water away from the basement, dropping it all into the installed WaterGuard®. The WaterGuard® pushes all the water into the TripleSafe™. The sump pump pushes the water out through the IceGuard® away from the home. This leaves the customers confident in renovating their basement again and no worrying about water damage in the future.

When renovation season is here, it's time to get your foundation and waterproofing in check before you start placing that drywall! Homeowners in Cobourg, Ontario, wanted to begin renovating their basement finally. All the materials were purchased to transform the basement, but they needed to encapsulate the walls first and take care of the space to prevent water from leaking in. The home was a little older with a typical poured concrete wall foundation. There was some evidence of water coming into the space. We had installed a sump pump a few years back, and now the homeowners wanted us to complete the encapsulation.

 

Our most experienced System Design Specialist, Chris Luke, quoted two products that would encapsulate each wall and direct water to the home's recently installed sump pump. Later, our production crew, led by our Foreman Jose Martinez, started the encapsulation process. They installed our WaterGuard® perimeter drainage system and ThermalDry® wall insulation. Both systems combine to direct water towards the drainage system around the edge of the basement, which then travels to the existing sump pump. The owners were delighted with a job well done and that the scheduling did not interrupt the timeline of the renovations.

But wait, there's more! This basement in Cobourg, Ontario, was waterproofed by our team in the past but was only partially waterproofed. Just as you get off the steps to the basement and turn to the first room, a wall is causing some water issues. On rainy days, the floor would be covered in water and soak the homeowner's socks. Since they had our contact information, they contacted us immediately. Our System Design Specialist, Chris Luke, came to the home and began his assessment. Since some of our materials had been installed before, the waterproofing job would be substantially quicker. Chris submitted his estimate, and it was time to send our installation specialist Lucio Flores, to finish waterproofing the rest of the space. He installed our CleanSpace® waterproof wall membrane and our Waterguard® perimeter drainage system that connects to the existing sump pump we installed. The job was done quickly since the WaterGuard® was already in place.

Fast & Affordable Concrete Repair

The sunken and cracked concrete around your Cobourg home is both an eyesore and a safety hazard. It is also likely to get worse with time, but we can fix it for you!

Our experts use PolyLevel, a superior polyurethane foam to provide reliable concrete lifting & leveling solutions. Small holes are drilled in the concrete and the expansion of the foam lifts & levels the concrete. The majority of contractors you will call use mudjacking instead of foam. Mudjacking is heavier, requires larger holes in the concrete and does not last as long as PolyLevel.

If your home has cracked concrete steps, pool decks, patios, or other slabs, then NexusPro is the right solution. NexusPro repairs concrete cracks and joints and is ultra-durable, so it will withstand UV rays, extreme weather, and more.

After utilizing our expert concrete repair solutions, consider the powerful concrete sealant, SealantPro. SealantPro further protects your concrete by bonding with it to guard against oil, gasoline, liquids, and other debris. In just one coat, SealantPro extends the life of your concrete by 3 to 5 times overall. 

Call us today to learn more about our proven concrete leveling, cracked concrete repair, and concrete sealing techniques. We also offer professional installation of LintelLift to repair and support sagging, cracked garage lintels.

Job Stories From Cobourg, ON
Full Encapsulation Finished Before Basement Renovations, Cobourg ON

Full basement encapsulations should be done the first time around. Unfortunately, in this circumstance, in Cobourg, Ontario, homeowners had to replace their sump pump. Thankfully that was the only repair needed until a few years later when the homeowners realized the water had started to enter the basement walls. With Clarke Basement Systems in the picture from the sump pump installation, the homeowners quickly called again to encapsulate the space. Chris Luke, one of our most experienced System Design Specialists, returned to the home and suggested two products that would guarantee an insulated, energy-saving, dry space that discharges excess water away from the house. From there, the installation crew went to the rescue since the homeowners had a strict timeline to renovate the basement. The job took little time since the main brains of the basement, the sump, were already in place. We just had to attach our WaterGuard® perimeter drainage system and place the ThermalDry® insulation on all the walls. This space is ready to go full throttle in renovations since the basement is safe from all the elements.

Basement Waterproofing and Mould Removal in Cobourg, Ontario

Every homeowner is afraid of mould. It’s unsightly, smells, and can have terrible health effects. In many cases it can simply be scrubbed away, and the issue is gone, but sometimes mould can take over and cause damage to your beloved space. Caused by moisture, when you find mould in your home, you’re usually dealing with not only a mould problem, but a water seepage problem too. 

Katy, a homeowner in Cobourg, Ontario, owns a gorgeous bungalow with a finished basement. She discovered that water was entering the front wall of her home in three different spots, causing mould to grow and build up. She was concerned about potential health issues caused by the mould and it was difficult to use the space. With a bungalow only consisting of two floors, she was unable to use almost half of the space in her home, causing frustration and cramping on the main level. A fun space to entertain and shoot some pool was inaccessible and the problem was only getting worse. 

Katy reached out to Clarke Basement Systems for a permanent solution for her mould madness.  A team was sent out to remove the mould, along with 83 feet of drywall and insulation. System Design Specialist Ryan Hanlon designed a waterproofing system and Foreman David Jackson got busy installing it. The system consisted of CleanSpace® Vapor Barrier, WaterGuard® and a TripleSafe™ Sump Pump. Together these products prevent moisture from entering the space and send any water that does enter into a drain where it is pumped out. Since most Ontario basements deal with high humidity on a regular basis, we also installed an Aprilaire De-Humidifier to ensure the basement stays dry and safe. 

Since the repairs have been done Katy has been ecstatic that she can finally use her basement again. She was very pleased with how the work turned out and has played many games of pool since its completion! She has since refinished her basement too and can finally entertain guests in a dry and safe area.

Crack in Foundation in Cobourg, ON

Our customer living in Cobourg, Ontario, contacted our company regarding a crack in their basement foundation. They wanted to finish their basement, but the issue needed to be fixed first. They needed a quick and budget-friendly solution.

Steve Matthews, System Design Specialist, assessed the crack and provided a permeant solution. Mark Dougherty, a Foreman, installed:

  • a FlexiSpan® Foundation Crack Repair System

The FlexiSpan® System is a polyurethane polymer that will never dry out or crack. This system is perfect because it bends with the natural movement of the foundation.

Our customer was thrilled to have a permeant solution for their cracked foundation. They are now able to finish their basement with no worry of future water damage.

We had a very small leak in our basement laundry room on Feb 21 but it's been dry since. It looks as though there may have been a leak once or twice previously behind the insulation and vapour barrier. We are seeking a quote on what it would take to repair the leak as well as a possible time-frame. Thank you in advance.

The sump pump set-up I have presently is located in a crawl space with a liner of 24" deep x 16" wide with a 1/3 hp pump at the bottom of the hole and a battery back up pump located at the mid-way part of the sump hole. There is a 5 ft distance from the top of the sump hole to the exit opening to the tube leading to the outside of the house. During the summer the sump water is pumped out a 1 1/4" hose buried about one foot below ground, and during winter I use a different 1 1/4" hose with a heating cable which are wrapped in insulation tubing laying above ground. Both pumps are getting old and I would like to replace them with your Smart Sump system. With the recent winter rain storm our sump hole was filling every 90 secs for about 6 hours. Please give me a call so we can discuss. Thanks
