Basement waterproofing

our basement suffered from chronic leaking after every heavy downpour. We called Clarke basement systems, Don came and did a through on site visit, he laid a plan and described to me a water mangement system. We had it installed and our basement has been dry ever since, I actually look forward to heavy downpours to see his water management system kick into gear and keep our basement dry. Clarke Basement systems has the solutions don't go anywhere else.

Basement waterproofing

We had a lot of water damage in our finished basement from a hairline crack in the wall. Clarke's came very quickly not only to assess and give us a reasonable quote but to also fix the job before the damage got any worse. Thanks to Clarke's we don't have to worry about mould or dampness. These guys are a great team, who are very courteous, friendly, and clean up after the job is done. You'll not go wrong with this company.

'CleanSpace' in my crawl space.

April 12, 2007

Don Clark,
Clarke Basement Systems,
284 Main St. N.,
Markham, Ontario
L3P 2Y8

Dear Don

Thank you for a job well done on my crawlspace. Your crew of Rob, Graham and Aldo did a fabulous job and are a credit to Clarke Basement Systems.

The CleanSpace product is not inexpensive, but I know I got what I paid for because I have already seen some results of having this product installed. There is definitely less moisture up in my living space now and I have noticed a reduction of moisture on my windows as well. I know this will also reduce my heating and air conditioning bills as well.

Something that was not mentioned to me was how your product helps drastically reduce radon gas. Here in Lagoon City we live on a peat bog that causes radon gas and so this product is a great added feature worth mentioning to everyone who should have CleanSpace in their crawl space.

Your CleanSpace system certainly will “pay for itself”.

Thanks again for a job well done.

Sincerely,

Tibor Patacsi

Basement Waterproofing

We have a home in North Toronto with a 5 year old addition. Despite our contractor's best efforts to waterproof (weeping tile inside and out) we were still getting water in the new part of our basement during heavy rainfalls. Finally enough was enough & it was time to do something...even though it meant gutting our 5 year old basement. I researched the options like crazy and definitely made the right choice. In fact we were so pleased with the results we wound up waterproofing and refinishing the old part of the basement as well.
We have done extensive renovations to our home over the past 10 years & Clarke Basement Systems were the best we have dealt with of any contractors. The job was finished on time, on budget and with full cleanup and excellent after sales service. Our basement is totally dry and comfortable and I don't lay awake anymore when it rains expecting to find wet carpet in the basement. It's unbelievable what a difference it has made. Definitely money well spent.

Basement, poured concrete seam leak, tie holes

My husband and I contacted Clarke Basement Systems after a healthy home inspection and thousands of dollars were spent trying to rectify the cause of the musty cottage odour of this 30 something house. Our lifesavings invested into what quickly became a money pit when the day we moved in Mar.16/05 the furnace failed. So after a new heating and cooling system & spray in foam insulation expense 2005, brand new roof in 2006 it wasn't until a "healthy home" inspection in 2007 did we realize the basement was in dire need of repair. Quickly and accurately, Chris arrived to quote the job and Jose completed the work 2 weeks later. Jose noticed the tie holes were bad and repaired those at the same time which I knew were needing repair but the major seam was our priority and the tie holes would have to wait. There was no pressure to add on this expense, as Jose was so sincere in his true concern that as a professional, he knew as well these needed to be repaired. I hadn't the heart to ask him to fit in 6 or 7 exposed tie holes when we had only scheduled the seam repair at the time. Jose left behind a great impression of quality service and we greatly appreciate his work. Little may Clarke Basements realize, but we had lost our son 10 weeks after moving into our house to SIDS/SUDS. Our journey of grief has now begun the upward climb and our house has become our home with the help of Clarke Basement Systems.

Basement Waterproofing

To everyone at Clarke Basement Systems:

THANK YOU!

We couldn’t be more pleased with the job you did on our basement earlier this month.

Everyone we dealt with during this process was professional, polite and pleasant.

Roy, who quoted on the job was very knowledgeable and left us feeling that we had made the right decision in going ahead with Clarke. He even stopped by while work was in progress – not that he needed to as Todd, Rob and Graham had everything under control!

We have to comment on what a great crew we had. They were friendly, very professional and respectful in our home. They left everything neat and tidy. They even finished the job ahead of schedule, which was an unexpected and welcomed surprise.

The peace of mind we have about our basement is incredible.

We would gladly recommend Clarke Basement Systems to anyone needing waterproofing. In fact, family and friends who have known about or leaky basement hear all about Clarke and the fantastic job you did when they hear we have had the basement done.

Thank you again for doing such a great job!!

Sincerely,

Kevin & Wil MacKenzie
Markham, Ontario

We love the work that was done in our basement. We have had a damp basement for 7 years and now after having installed the system, it is very dry and we are very happy with the high quailty of work.

Thank you

Crawl Space

We had a musty, 45 year old, 2500 sq/ft building with an exposed earth crawl space of 18” – 24”. Clarke Basements came in, insulated the walls, covered the ground with their plastic liner and installed a Sani Dry Dehumidifier. We now have a dry, odour free crawl space and a very comfortable building. The price made us think twice before we did the work, but in the end we know it was worth the investment. The work was completed by the crews with little notice to us, even though it must have been difficult. If you have moisture in your basement these are definitely the people to talk too.
