Our Solution to Failure of Proper External Waterproofing in Toronto, ON

Our Solution to Failure of Proper External Waterproofing in Toronto, ON

Before After
Our Solution to Failure of Proper External Waterproofing in Toronto, ON Our Solution to Failure of Proper External Waterproofing in Toronto, ON

A home in Toronto, Ontario had a basement that was very damp and leaked in several locations when it rained. The basement is large, and they would see water coming up through the ceramic tile joints.  The issue was hydrostatic water pressure from below the house, as well as moisture penetration through the foundation walls. This unwanted water entry was a result of a failure of a proper external waterproofing system when building the home. The basement was finished, and they wanted to have space with no water leaking in causing mould and damage.

The customer no longer wanted to deal with a smelly basement and damaged items, so they called Clarke Basement SystemsJose Martinez and the team installed a WaterGuard® around the perimeter of the basement to capture groundwater.  A ThermalDry® Wall membrane was used to direct moisture from foundation walls and direct it to the WaterGuard.  A SuperSump® Premier sump pump with UltraSump® Battery Back-up in case of a power failure was installed to collect water and discharge it outside through our IceGuard® Discharge Line System. This system ensures that any ground water penetrating the basement is captured and pumped away from foundation. The customer is happy knowing they can finish the basement and use the space with no worry about water damage.

Brokerage owners in Toronto, ON, ran into some water seepage in the basement of their storefront. Their biggest concern was that mould would begin to grow if left unattended, and they would have to shut down their business. So, they called Clarke Basement Systems, where System Design Specialist Ben Wallis created a solution to keep the business up and running.

 

Installation Foreman Dave Jackson installed our WaterGuard® drainage system. Next, he closed off the area with our CleanSpace® Encapsulation system. This will protect the area from water vapour and ultimately eliminate mould from impacting their store. Lastly, installing a new SuperSump® system ensures all future water seepage is discharged effectively.

When dealing with a stressful situation, lightening the mood can be helpful. Sometimes we make fun of the situation we're in, or we give something a quirky name.

A couple in Cookstown, Ontario, was dealing with a water seepage issue below their front window. The water was preventing them from utilizing their basement, and they had started referring to it as the "exterior fishbowl." They dreamed of finishing their basement but wanted to get rid of the fishbowl first.

They decided to reach out to Clarke Basement Systems. System Design Specialist Chris Luke met the couple at their home and inspected the space.  He designed a system to keep their basement dry and give them the means to finish the room with confidence.

Foreman Jose Martinez dug a trench around the basement's perimeter and installed our WaterGuard® Drain System. The customers already had a sump system in place, so Jose connected the drain to the system. The basement encapsulated with CleanSpace® to stop moisture at the walls, and a WellDuct® was installed beneath the window. 

The homeowners can't wait to finish their basement finally. They're happy with the work done by our team and no longer have an exterior fishbowl.

Storefront in Toronto Needs Waterproofing

Store owners of a brokerage firm in Toronto, ON, had a bit of a water seepage issue that was ongoing for some time. After realizing it was getting progressively worse, they decided to call Clarke Basement Systems for a solution that would keep them safe from mould growth. First, we placed our patented WaterGuard® as a drainage system. Then they closed off the area with our CleanSpace® water vapour barrier. This will protect the place from water seepage and guide it to the drainage system, later discharging it outside the store.

Wet Toronto, ON Basement Fixed With WaterGuard and TripleSafe

The City of Toronto, ON was having issues with one of their water waste plants, which was suffering from water intrusion into the basement after heavy rainfall. The building was 50 years old and was in need of repair, so they reached out to Clarke Basement Systems to remediate their problem.

 

Claude Mathieu went to the water waste plant to assess the situation, and found that they were in need of effective drainage. He suggested the DryTrak interior waterproofing system, combined with the Flangeless WaterGuard perimeter drainage system. He also advocated the use of the TripleSafe Sump Pump for added protection against future flooding. Primary Foreman Rob Trevisan brought a team of specialists to perform installation, and they have saved the water waste plant from future water issues.
