This homeowner had a wet basement every spring and was tired of the water. We installed a SuperSump® Premier Sump Pump System in the basement.
At first glance, the basement in the before picture looks similar to any other basement with tons of random things stored there, but once we were able to inspect the walls, we noticed a crack from one window to the other. It is easier to see in the after picture.
To stop the foundation wall from bowing in, Clarke Basement Systems installed CarbonArmor® Reinforcing System, which is the same material to reinforce bridges, skyscrapers and bomb shelters. With our CarbonArmor installed, this Burlington homeowner can now rest easy, knowing that the best systems available are supporting his once bowing, basement wall
Looking for protection from a potential sump failure and a flooded basement this Mississauga, ON homeowner, contacted us. They wanted their basement to be kept dry all the time with no more worries about it in the future. We installed our TripleSafe™ Complete Sump Pump System with three levels of protection for the basement.
A homeowner in Mississauga had recently purchased a 170-year-old home. He and his wife were moved in and ready to entertain guests, but there was one problem. They had a stinky sump pump. Their entertainment room was in their basement, but guests were hesitant to go downstairs due to the smell. Frustrated, the customer reached out to Clarke Basement Systems.
The couple had Clarke Basement Systems install a sump pump at their previous home and were looking for the same solution. System Design Specialist Alex Barnik met with the customer and explained the different types of sump pumps. After deciding on a SuperSump® pump and an IceGuard® Discharge System, Foreman Lucio Flores worked hard installing the new products. The couple is extremely satisfied with the new sump pump, and they can now entertain in a smell-free basement.
The presence of mould is an alarming discovery. Mould can lead to a slew of health problems, and always indicates the presence of water. While mould and mildew removal can be costly to deal with, it’s nowhere near as bad as the cost of letting it get worse.
A customer in Mississauga, Ontario, found mould growing in her cold room. She loved having the space for storage, and wanted to finish the room, but dealing with the mould and water was her first priority. She had previously had the room waterproofed by another company and was disappointed that the work didn’t address the leaking ceiling.
Looking for a solution, she reached out to Clarke Basement Systems to set up a free estimate. System Design Specialist Ron Monk met with the customer and inspected the cold room. He used our Cold Room Encapsulation System to design a unique solution for her cold room.
Foreman Don Clarke started by encapsulating the cold room with CleanSpace® Vapour Barrier, giving the walls an airtight seal and catching any water. The CleanSpace® is connected to vinyl ceiling panels that catch water coming from the ceiling before draining it into the CleanSpace®. From there, the water is drained through the floor where it seeps back into the ground. A vent connects the cold room to the rest of the basement, allowing fresh air to enter and disperse the humidity.
The customer is happy that she can comfortably move forward with her basement renovation. She can finally use her cold room, and the extra space adds value to her home.
To ensure professional installation and superior service we carefully created an international network of over 350 trusted basement contractors.
