Our customer's basement floor had sunken over 2 inches stalling their renovation project. To continue their plan, the floor needed to be level. With the help of our team, we injected high-density PolyLevel® to compress the loose soils underneath and raise the concrete. The family can now continue with their renovation project and use the space to its full potential.

A home in Newmarket, Ontario, had water seeping into the finished basement. The water was coming in through the floor and the wall causing the house to smell musty. Mould was starting to form on the drywall and baseboards, and the homeowner wanted to fix this issue before it got any worse. 

The customer called Clarke Basement Systems, and Ben Wallis explained everything. Luke Haverkort and the team came in and took down all the drywall. They installed ThermalDry® wall membrane on all the walls to keep moisture out and direct any seepage into the newly established WaterGuard® drainage system around the perimeter. This solution allowed the customer a piece of mind knowing their water issues are gone and the musty smell would disappear. Now they can renovate the basement knowing it will stay dry. 


Damp Cold Room Becomes the Ultimate Storage Place in Uxbridge, ON

Damp Cold Room Becomes the Ultimate Storage Place in Uxbridge, ON Damp Cold Room Becomes the Ultimate Storage Place in Uxbridge, ON

A cold room in the basement of a Uxbridge home had tons of potential to be well utilized for storage due to its large amount of square footage. However, it limited the customers to use it as it was extremely damp, and had minor leaks found in the foundation. So, they called CBS, where Ben Wallis transformed their space to a whole new functioning area.


Installation professional Don Clarke and his crew headed out to Uxbridge one morning to deliver just what the customers asked for. They installed our BrightWall®, WaterGuard®, and an in-house solution for the new ceiling that made the space feel like it was just another room in the house instead of a cold room!


The customers were so pleased they made the right call as they were blown away by the way their space looked when the job was done. Now they could store all their items away and not worry about them getting damp, or moldy.

Newmarket, ON Basement Waterproofing & Crawl Space Repair

Crawl space encapsulation in Newmarket, ON

The surfaces of this dirt crawl space were covered with the CleanSpace Vapor Barrier for superior protection against moisture.

Many homeowners in the town of Newmarket commute into Toronto every day for work. While they're gone, they shouldn't have to worry about water filling their basement; and yet, with the moderate and consistent precipitation Newmarket receives year-round, basement water problems are a distinct possibility. Clarke Basement Systems is the premiere basement waterproofing company serving Newmarket and the rest of Ontario. In business since 2003, we are the area's trusted source for a dry, clean basement.

If you have significant amounts of water leaking through walls, floors, windows, or hatchways in your basement, you know without a doubt that there is a problem. However, there are many other signs of a basement water issue, such as: 

  • Wet or damp basement floor or standing water
  • Leaking or damp basement walls or windows
  • Crystalline deposits on concrete surfaces
  • Musty odors, condensation, and humidity
  • Sump pump issues

Even if you don't think there's much moisture in your basement, it's best to get rid of it before mould or rot develops. Clarke Basement Systems offers a wide variety of products to ensure the safety and cleanliness of your basement. From sump pumps to drains and dehumidifiers, all of our patented, warrantied basement waterproofing products are designed to get a specific job done.

Along with our basement waterproofing services, we also offer crawl space encapsulation and waterproofing to prevent discomfort and structural decay in this space. The key to a successful crawl space encapsulation is the proper installation of a moisture barrier, which seals the area from the world outside and prevents moisture from entering. This system has additional benefits as well, as it keeps out pests and can protect your home from fluctuating temperatures.

Foundation Repair in Newmarket

Foundation repair is crucial for maintaining the safety and value of a home, and it must be completed by a professional contractor. Clarke Basement Systems has professional foundation specialists trained by  Supportworks, the leading network of foundation contractors, ready to solve all of your property's problems. We will thoroughly inspect your property to produce a correct diagnosis of your needs.

There are many things we look for when inspecting a property for foundation disrepair. Some common signs include:

  • Sagging floors and floor cracks
  • Wall cracks
  • Bowing walls
  • Sticking doors and windows
  • Tilting chimneys

The way that these signs present themselves often makes the underlying problem very obvious. For example, stair-step cracking along exterior brickwork is usually a sign of foundation settlement, while upward-sloping cracks in the middle of floors can mean foundation heave. No matter what's wrong with your foundation, we have the products needed to restore stability to your home. Foundation piers, wall anchors and braces, and crawl space jacks are just some of the systems we can install on your property.

A failing garage lintel can also be a sign of structural settlement. Cracks along the brickwork, sagging, and pulling away from the home are all signs of a failing garage lintel. We offer expert garage lintel repair by installing the patented LintelLift garage lintel repair system.

Concrete Lifting, Concrete Crack Repair, & Concrete Sealing in Newmarket

Cracked, sinking sidewalk in Newmarket

Big cracks in sidewalks like the one shown above are a sign of concrete slab settlement.

If foundation settlement isn't your problem, concrete slab settlement might be. Have you noticed cracks or uneven floors along your driveway, sidewalk, patio, or garage? These are common signs of slab settlement, which detract from the attractiveness of your property and can cause tripping hazards. This is why we offer reliable concrete leveling, concrete crack repair, and concrete sealing solutions to combat these issues and to secure your home's image, safety, and value!

Clarke Basement Systems uses PolyLevel® for local concrete lifting needs. This system consists of a polyurethane foam which expands after it is injected beneath the concrete. Just 15 minutes after its installation, the slab will be lifted, level, and ready for normal use!

We also use NexusPro as an effective concrete sealant for concrete cracks and joints. If you have cracked concrete steps, walkways, patios, and more, then NexusPro can effectively seal them while resisting UV rays, fluctuating temperatures, extreme weather patterns and more to assure their safety and image for years to come.

After utilizing our concrete repair solutions, consider sealing your concrete with SealantPro. In just one quick application, SealantPro can extend your concrete's life by 3 to 5 times overall and guard against oil, gasoline, liquids, and other debris. 

Clarke Basement Systems offers free estimates for all of our basement, crawl space, foundation, concrete lifting, and concrete repair services. If you're concerned about the state of your home, we will schedule an appointment convenient to you. Contact us today for a free estimate in Newmarket!

Job Stories From Newmarket, ON
Tight Squeeze Wall Crack Repair, Newmarket ON

In Newmarket, Ontario, a small cellar had a large crack running from the floor to the ceiling. The homeowner didn't think anything of it until a few of the support beams were getting wet and mouldy. This raised concern, so she immediately called the professionals at Clarke Basement Systems, and we had System Design Specialist Ben Wallis go to the home for an inspection. The space was very narrow and was a bit challenging to get through to the crack, but luckily, Ben made it work, and he was able to quote our client effectively. The problem was the home's outside corner. It was holding a lot of water during each rainfall, and with the water not having anywhere to go, it started to crack its way into the cellar leaving a lightning bolt fracture in the wall. The best solution was our FlexiSpan® wall crack repair system that seals the crack and guides excess water to the footing of the wall and into a man-made drain we create. If the water gets blocked off entirely, it will put too much stress on the seal over time and then eventually break through. With Ben's thorough explanation, it was time to get to work. Installation Specialist, Alan Murphy, went to the home and started the job.

We have a bungalow with an unfinished basement. We have a small water leak on three walls. I believe the best way to repair the leak would be from the outside. We could either (A) repair the section of the wall that has the leak or (B) repair the entire wall. There is an air conditioner on one of the walls and a wooden deck on one of the other walls.

Several homes in our immediate area have experienced collapse of the attached 2 car garage floor. In our garage, the floor seems okay, but there are cracks along the rebar locations, and it sounds hollow around the perimeter. Also, there are significant cracks in the garage east and west foundation walls (the garage opens to the north). In addition, we have extensive separation of the brick on the west and south walls. What options do you recommend to prevent further damage and stabilize the structure?
