A house can be more than just a family home. They act as businesses, apartments and sometimes even specialized care facilities. No matter what the building is used for, it must remain safe and useable.

A customer in Richmond Hill, Ontario, operates a home for developmentally disabled adults. Safety is an essential aspect of keeping the facility running smoothly, but unfortunately, they were dealing with a water issue in the basement. This was threatening the home and its residents with the chance of mould growing in the basement, and their belongings were often found to be wet.

Looking for a solution before the winter began, the customer reached out to Clarke Basement Systems. He met with System Design Specialist Ben Wallis and they inspected the basement and cold room. Ben discovered water was seeping in from the wall and floor joint and designed a system to keep the basement totally dry. 

Foreman Jose Martinez started by digging a pit for the SuperSump® Pump. When the pump is below the grade of the floor it catches water from the WaterGuard® Drain and drainage stone, pumping it out of the basement. Jose installed the SuperSump® with an UltraSump™ Battery Backup for extra peace of mind.

Jose then encapsulated the area with CleanSpace® Vapour Barrier, and Foreman Don Clarke installed a SunHouse® Shallow Well to let in light and help with drainage.

The customer and the home’s residents are happy that their basement and cold room is dry. The house is once again safe, and the residents can live without the worry of a flood in the basement.

An essential job of a house is to keep its residents safe. Whether it’s a stable roof, insulated windows, or a dry basement, every part of our home plays a role in its safety. When something is causing you to lose trust in your home, it’s time for a change.

A customer in Richmond Hill, Ontario, runs a home for developmentally disabled adults. He noticed water was entering his basement, and it was taking its toll. A musty smell was present, and the homeowner was concerned about the growth of mould. He reached out to Clarke Basement Systems in search of a solution. 

System Design Specialist Ben Wallis knew exactly what to do in this situation. He inspected the home and designed a waterproofing solution to protect the customer's home and ensure the health of its residents.

Foreman Jose Martinez started by excavating the perimeter of the basement and cold room before installing our WaterGuard® Drain System. He encapsulated the area with CleanSpace® Vapour Barrier, which funnels water down to the WaterGuard®. He also installed a SuperSump® Pump and UltraSump® Battery Backup. Since exterior drainage was also an issue, Foreman Don Clarke installed a SunHouse® Shallow Well Window.

The customer is happy knowing he no longer has to worry about mould growing in his basement. His home is protected from the effects of moisture, and he has peace of mind knowing any water that does make it into the basement will be removed efficiently.

Expert Foundation Repairs in Richmond Hill, ON

Many of the foundation problems that homes face look larger and more complex than they might actually be. The main reason for most foundation problems is shifting, weakened soil that can no longer support the weight of the structure. Some of the major signs of foundation problem in you home are:

  • Uneven or sloping floors
  • Cracks in the floor, interior wall, or exterior wall
  • Inward bowing walls
  • Sagging floors over a crawl space
  • Hard to open windows and doors
  • Tilting chimneys
  • Street creep

Garage lintels can also fail over time because of all the weight it holds up above your garage door. 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.

Crawl Space and Mold Repairs in Richmond Hill, ON

As a part of the house that can often be neglected, a crawl space can become a breeding ground for mold, mildew, and even small animals or other pests if left unchecked. When this happens, trust the experts at Clarke Basement Systems to install vapor barriers, thermal insulation and dehumidifiers to turn your dirty, musty crawl space into a healthy, energy-efficient space. 

Major signs of a crawl space problem:

  • Sagging floors
  • Condensation
  • Mold
  • Wood rot
  • Foundation problems

Mold can be a silent killer in your home which is why you should have your home inspected regularly. Wood rot can also be a huge problem because when left unchecked, it can eat through wood, making it incapable of holding up the floor above the crawl space. We can install crawl space jack posts to correct sagging beams and keep your home a safer place. 

Clarke Basement Systems is committed to customer service because we are proud to serve our area. Let our team of knowledgeable staff and skilled technicians find a solution that will work for both your home and your budget. Call us today for a free estimate!

Job Stories From Richmond Hill, ON
Moving Forward with Renovations in Richmond Hill, Ontario

In Richmond Hill, Ontario, a newly owned home needed some TLC before the family's wishes to renovate could come true. with a wet basement perimeter, and a moldy stench, they contacted Clarke Basement Systems, and our team knew exactly what this basement needed! 

First, to prevent any more water from damaging the basement installation foreman Dave Jackson and his trustworthy crew installed a WaterGuard system to give the water a place to go once it enters the basement. Secondly, they put what is known as our CleanSpace wall vapor barrier system in place. the membrane will eliminate any further moisture from being trapped in the interior of the basement. 

 

After the job was completed, this family happily started their renovations with the confidence that they wouldn't have any future water problems!

Heaving Foundation in Garage, Richmond Hill, ON

A home in Richmond Hill, Ontario, had a heaving foundation in the Garage because of frost and was sinking due to improper soils. This was damaging the home's foundation and causing cracks in bricks. The homeowner was worried the Foundation wouldn't hold the house from falling down.

The customer called Clarke Basement Systems. Claude Mathieu explained the solution for the home. Don Clarke and the team installed Push Piers, drainage membranes, insulation and filter stone. The piers stop the sinking and the drainage membranes and insulation is to protect against frost damage. Proper drainage of ground water directed away from the homes foundation and the insulation makes it hard for frost damage.

The customer was satisfied that they no longer have to worry about damage to the foundation.

Water problems in diagonally opposite corners of a finished basement. Corners with leaks are either not finished or semi-finished. After reading about potential solutions on your web site, I thought maybe the in floor perimeter drain and sump pump option might be the right solution for my home. I would like to discuss options with you as soon as possible.

We are buying a century home that has a weeping system discharging into a 2X2X3ft concrete well in the basement and the water is drained out of it using gravity discharging directly into the sewer. The system has been operational for over 70 years and it works well, however, there are some areas of the basement that show some moisture. We would like to get your opinion about the current system and whether it would be recommendable to install a sealed sump pump system like the ones you offer and connecting it to the existing weeping system. Also would like to have an idea of the price range for such a system including installation. Thanks
