Installed wall membrane and water guard drainage system on two walls in basement

We have used Clarke Basements twice before in other areas of our basement. They have always been professional, knowledgeable and reliable. We are so happy with their work which is why we always recommend them. This time Jose, Trevor and Dustin did a great job! They were punctual, did amazing work and made sure the place was neat and clean when they left. They answered all the questions my husband asked and were very patient. Choose Clarke
For whatever work you need. They are the best.

Basement Waterproofing

"Skilled labor isn't cheap / Cheap labor isn't skilled". This certainly rang true for our experience with Clarke Basements. Chris, Dave and Rob were nothing but professional from day 1. They were all willing and able to do a little hand holding throughout the project. Chris promptly answered all my questions that came up in the planning stages. My sump pump gave out at the beginning of day 2 of the install. Dave took it upon himself to not only install a replacement free of charge, but cleaned all the nasty iron deposits out of our sump pit! This showed me the care, pride and professionalism that this crew took in their work. We initially had a little sticker shock when the job was first quoted but we have no regrets with our choice to have Clarke Basements do the job.

Crawl space

The project is a game changer, our crawl space looks completely different. We are very happy and so glad we did it. It’s a big investment but totally worth it!

Repair Drainage System in Front Lawn

I called Clarke Basement systems in the morning on Jan 22, 2021 to advise I had a problem with water backup in my front lawn. An inspector surveyed the situation right away on the same day within 2 hours. This assistance was followed up by another repairman who came in the same afternoon. He was able to locate the problem and fix it. The problem was root accumulation in the drainage pipes leading to our drainage system in our front lawn. This was a serious problem that could have caused water backup in our house. The service was done in ONE DAY. We are TOTALLY SATISFIED with this great service.

Amazing crew finished a really difficult crawlspace

Lucio and Russell spent 2 days on a crawlspace encapsulation for my 1880's cottage - a very tight space over a dirt floor (not an easy task!). They were fantastic - fast, efficient, cleaned up well afterwards, shared pictures of progress, professional-all-around.

Ron, the inspector who first assessed and quoted on the job, was knowledgeable and helpful in talking through the options. Felt like this project was in good hands from the beginning.

Great experience with Clark Basement Systems

I have to admit that when I first found Clarke Basement Systems online I didn't do much research, I was thinking since they offer free estimate so there's nothing to lose anyways! Now I can say I'm very glad that we chose Clarke Basement Systems to repair the cracks on the basement wall. Everyone from Clarke we've talked to was polite, knowledgeable and respond promptly. Ali and Jason were excellent, they answered all our questions patiently and gave us valuable advice. One of the crack was too small to require a fix so Ali advised not to touch it, I appreciate their honesty on this, and shows they do what's best for customers. The repair was perfectly done and they did the clean up of the area so did not leave a single piece of garbage! I appreciate their consideration and and professionalism, I would recommend Clark Basement Systems to anyone who require work to be done their basement.

Crawlspace encapsulation really well done

Clarks basements team is amazing. Very thorough and professional.
Starting from the inspection and initial quote, everything was explained clearly. Price was good for the quality of work and materials used.
My crawlspace needed to be encapsulated, with vapour sheets on the floor and insulation on the side walls. The team did a really good job.
They left the place very clean and were very polite and considerate throughout the process.
Will definitely recommend them.

Waterproofing the basement. 80 year old stone foundation. Fixed dryer vent to the outside. Put in an outside window well bed. New sump pump and battery backup sump pump.

Dave, on site foreman, Brian and Kieran were respectful, we'll mannered and worked hard and we are very pleased with every step in the process. Chris Luke was patient and knowledgeable. Larry Cagegee of Aboriginal Housing Repair Program recommended you. He was absolutely right.
Again, thank you,
Sincerely,
Catherine and Keith Davis
PS - we still need our dehumidifier delivered and installed
