Water Seepage Soaks Belongings in Whitby, Ontario Water Seepage Soaks Belongings in Whitby, Ontario

There’s a lot we put up with at our homes. Creaky floorboards, a tap that doesn’t work quite right, or a flickering porch light. These little things usually don’t cause enough of a problem to solicit a fix, and they add a quirky charm to a house. What we can’t put up with is a leak in the basement.

A customer in Whitby, Ontario, was having a water problem in his basement. He had a previously installed sump pump, but unfortunately, this new leak was in an entirely different area. Frustrated and tired of mopping up water, the customer reached out to Clarke Basement Systems. 

System Design Specialist Ben Wallis met with the customer at his home. Ben was able to put the customer’s worries at ease by offering a simple solution for his water seepage issue.

Foreman Lucio Flores started by removing damaged drywall in the basement before excavating a section of the perimeter. The excavated area is used to lay down our WaterGuard® Drain System, which catches water coming from the floor joint and walls. Jose installed ThermalDry® to encapsulate the walls and funnel any seeping water down to the drain before pouring new concrete over the drain. Lastly, an additional piece of WaterGuard® was installed to bring the water to the sump pump.

The customer is very satisfied that their water problem is permanently fixed. For extra peace of mind, the customer called us back two years later to install a SuperSump® Battery Backup, which keeps their basement dry even in a power outage. A happy customer!

Damage at home happens. It could be as big as a broken furnace or as small as a broken window. Either way, it’s something we need to deal with, regardless of the issue.

A customer in Whitby, Ontario, had a foundation crack in their finished basement. Water was leaking through the crack onto their carpet, and they were concerned about damage from mould and mildew.

Tired of dealing with the crack, they reached out to Clarke Basement Systems for a solution. They met with System Design Specialist Chris Luke, who was able to put their worries at ease by showing them our FlexiSpan® Repair System.

Foreman Ali Fereidouni started the repair by injecting our sealant deep into the crack before patching the exterior. He also installed an in-floor drain to catch any additional seeping water. 

The customer is thrilled that their finished basement is protected. They can continue to use the space without having to worry about mould and mildew.

Fast & Affordable Concrete Repair

The sunken and cracked concrete around your Whitby 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.

Job Stories From Whitby, ON
Leaking Basement Prevents Rental in Whitby, Ontario

There’s a wide variety of things we can use our homes for, but a popular thing to do if you have space is to rent out your basement. It’s a great way to utilize unused space, and the extra revenue can be enough to cover a mortgage payment.

A customer in Whitby, Ontario, was hoping to turn his basement into a rental space. His basement was finished, but unfortunately, there was water entering at one side of the basement. He needed the rental money but had to fix the issue before a tenant could move in. He reached out to Clarke Basement Systems, looking for a solution. 

System Design Specialist Ryan Hanlon inspected the home. He created a system to keep the basement dry and allow a tenant to move in. Foreman Dave Jackson installed our TripleSafe® Sump Pump and UltraSump® Battery Backup to keep water out of the basement year-round. WaterGuard® was installed around the perimeter of the basement, catching water and draining it to the sump pump. Since most basements in Ontario have high humidity, an Aprilaire® Dehumidifier was installed to keep the relative humidity down.

The customer is ecstatic that his basement is dry. He has a great secondary source of income now, and a tenant moved in within weeks of our team completing the work.

Water Seepage Floods Church Basement in Whitby, Ontario

Having an unusable space due to water is frustrating. But when work is completed to remedy the situation, only to have it fail, the frustration is amplified. For a church is Whitby, Ontario, this was the unfortunate hand they were dealt. Seeping water during rain and thaw season was rendering their large basement space useless. Water would often pool on the floor, creating an unsafe area for churchgoers and the Montessori school that rented out the space.

Before contacting Clarke Basement Systems, the church hired a different contractor to fix the problem. Unfortunately, that work was only done on the outside, a strategy that was doomed to fail. We sent over System Design Specialist Chris Luke to inspect the situation and develop a plan to waterproof the basement for good.

Foreman Jose Martinez installed multiple waterproofing products, giving the basement an entire waterproofing system. WaterGuard® French Drain was installed along the perimeter of the basement floor, offering proper drainage. Jose installed an UltraSump® sump pump to expel the water outside, away from the basement. To ensure the area was fully waterproofed, he also installed BrightWall®, encapsulating the entire space while providing a clean look. 

With the work complete and the basement finally dry, the church owner can breathe a sigh of relief. The large space is once again useable for the tenants and churchgoers, and with our warranty it will be for many years!

Basement Renovations Put On Hold Due To Flooding in Whitby, ON

Homeowners in Whitby, ON, were devastated to find out that water was seeping in through their floor wall joint. They just began to renovate their basement when they found out they would need to fix this issue first. If they didn’t fix the water problem, all their expensive renovations would get ruined! They quickly decided they had to resolve the water seepage issues, so they called Clarke Basement Systems for their free estimate.

System Design Specialist, Chris Luke, inspected the home and recommended that our WaterGuard® Below-Floor French Drain System, SuperSump™ Sump Pump, and IceGuard® Sump Pump Discharge Line System would be the perfect products to completely waterproof the basement and prevent any future water damage from occurring.

When the plan was in place, Installation Foreman, Dave Jackson, and his crew got to work. They installed the patented Basement System products quickly and efficiently. Now the homeowners are relieved and never have to worry about the basement flooding, especially with the 25-year transferable warranty. They are thrilled with the results and are happy to get back to renovating their basement.

Unreliable Sump System Replaced for THE BEST Sump System Available in Whitby, ON

Stephen S. was sick and tired of coming home to find his Whitby, ON, home’s basement completely submerged in water. Not only was it ruining all his stored items, but damaging the structural integrity of his home! He knew that he had to resolve this issue ASAP and couldn’t put it on the back burner any longer. Stephen researched the top Waterproofing companies in the Durham region  and decided to hire Clarke Basement Systems.

 

Steve Matthews, System Design Specialist, isolated the water seepage issue in Stephen’s home. He found that there was MASSIVE hydrostatic pressure against the foundation of the home, resulting in water driving into the basement. Normally, a sump pump would be able to keep up with all the water entering the home, but this was not the case. Due to the amount of water entering the basement, the generic home builder sump system could not keep up. Steve Matthews recommended that the customer replace his sump system with the TripleSafe™ Sump Pump System. 


The TripleSafe™ System keeps your basement dry with triple the protection. Most sump pumps fail because of either a failed pump, a pump that can't handle high volumes of water or power failure. The TripleSafe assures protection from all three-sump pump problems. Dave Jackson, our job foreman, installed the new sump system and noticed the hydrostatic pressure disappear within minutes! He also rerouted the water discharge line to an area farther away from the house, so that water wouldn’t continue to come back in.

 

There’s no doubt that Stephen can now enjoy a dry, healthy basement, and have peace of mind of knowing it won’t flood again.

Water Seepage No More! Whitby, ON

Brittany O. had water leaking into her Whitby home’s basement every spring thaw. The result was a damp, musty basement with damage to all her items stored down there. Brittany described the situation as “scary” because it was not only compromising the structural integrity of her home but was creating an unhealthy environment for her. She knew that the problem needed to be resolved properly, so she called Clarke Basement Systems.

 

Chris Luke, one of our System Design Specialists, put a foolproof plan together to resolve the water issue. Dave Jackson, the Foreman on the job, followed Chris’ plan and installed Cleanspace® walling to catch all the water seeping in through the foundation. The water flows to our patented WaterGuard® Below-Floor Drain System where the water gets redirected to the SuperSump® Premier Sump Pump System. All the water that was coming into the basement gets pumped out and away from the house, and the beautiful white Cleanspace® walls brightened up the basement too!

 

Since the job is complete, Brittany no longer considers her basement scary. She can now store her belongings down there without any fear of water damage! Her basement is now a healthy space for her and her family.

Concrete Island Causing a Serious Hazard, Whitby, ON

A parking lot in Whitby, Ontario, had a concrete island that had sunken substantially, inside the curb stones. This presented many potential trip hazards for visitors to the Centre, which the Engineering Technician from the Town of Whitby wanted us to alleviate.    

The customer called us regarding the area next to the electric car charging station in the Iroquois Center parking lot. Our team came and in injected PolyLevel foam. This lifted the concrete back to its original position and allowed the concrete to be stable for the future. The trip hazard is no longer there and the technician is happy know they don't have to worry about it anymore.

My home is a 140 year old brick house in Whitby, on steeply sloped land. The footprint is very small (less than 500sq feet), and it has an unfinished basement with crawlspace. I'm concerned about signs of settling in the back corner of the house - uneven floors, foundation cracks, cracks in previous windows, etc. I'm looking to stabilize the house and level it before making other renovations. I have an experienced carpenter willing to level the home, but without a sturdy foundation, I'm concerned that the house will continue to shift. I'm looking to get quotes.

Water is coming up through a crack in the floor. The crack looks like it was filled years ago, but the has re-opened. The entire crack is about 18" long, but water is coming up through a small section - about 3" long. I would like someone to come out to refill the crack. Thanks, Sean
