Stuart and Laurie Silcox called Clarke Basement Systems to inspect their crawl space. Their concerns were rooted in the poor condition of their floor joists and the high humidity. With the moisture through the roof, this was directly contributing to the deterioration of the floor joists. It also led to some unwelcomed pests and rodents – they were not a fan. This was a very important and urgent issue for them to solve as they were in the midst of making this Port Elgin cottage their permanent home. They needed to be sure their home was safe and structurally sound. This affected their family because until this work was completed, they weren’t comfortable settling into their new home. Both Stuart and Laurie were most affected because they had multiple other contractors present them with proposed work to fix their home, but they simply weren’t confident enough to move forward with anyone. This made them very frustrated because they couldn’t just ignore the problems. It put them at ease finding our company and seeing our strong track record of fixing crawl spaces just like theirs every single day. 


The customers were so pleased with the work that was done, he offered to take the boys out for dinner. During our Project Manager’s post-job follow-up, Stuart told Logan Watson that he had a structural engineer friend come over to inspect our SmartJack™ System. He approved with two thumbs up! On top of that, we fully sealed off their crawl space so that rodents and insects denied access, and humidity would be kept in check. Stuart and Laurie can now confidently move into their new home and continue with their planned renovations

Job Stories From Port Elgin, ON
Beams in Cottage Crawl Space Worried Owners, Port Elgin ON

Cottage country has its relaxing and enjoyable ups but has its downs regarding its maintenance and upkeep. For example, in Port Elgin, these homeowners noticed that their crawl space had a musty smell and humidity that caused the support beams to soften and sag. They worried their home could collapse, so they avoided going to the cottage for months. After finding Clarke Basement Systems, the price and work that would get done were unmatched. Our System Design Specialist recommended products that would support the home and keep it dry. The systems such as SmartJacks™ and CleanSpace®, supported this home, giving it a brand-new feel. Our clients were delighted with the work and could now enjoy the spring/summer season in a structurally sound cottage.
