Basement wall repairs

The entire back wall of the house was treated with the Waterguard system, and a sump pump was installed. The work was completed in a timely manner, everything was explained beforehand, and they left the place clean. Probably as good an outcome as possible, under the conditions they had to work with.
Thanks again for the great service!

Basement waterproofing

We initially contacted Clarke basement systems approximately 5 years ago when the basement took on water. They came out and did a phenomenal job. At the time they recommended we do the entire perimeter of the house. We declined and only did the area where the initial problem was.

It worked and worked 100%. Until now. This summer we had water enter the basement in 2 other areas. Called Clarke to come back and indeed, do the entire perimeter. It was a TON of work because now that meant doing the finished part of the basement.

The crew came in and were amazing. They worked so so hard. They were very respectful of our property and took care to be the least disruptive as possible.

The job is now 100% completed and we're thrilled.

Thank you so much for a job well done.

PS... If they recommend doing the entire perimeter, I'd suggest following their recommendation. They know what they are talking about. It's not your classic "upsell".

Thanks again.

Basement Waterflow Management

The team was extremely proficient and responsive from the time we engaged their sales department through to the installation. The education provided around the issues we were having and how to address them, was excellent. The installation team came in and worked hard and cleaned up after themselves. They engaged us numerous times to get feedback and provide status reports. Good value for the money! Would highly recommend them.

Dropped off a dehumidifier

The Aprilaire dehumidifier works well, but when it came the box was essentially destroyed. It came with no 10” round for attaching it to and ducting, and there was no manual with it. I’ve figured it out for myself but it was pretty unprofessional. For something I paid over $2000 for I would expect everything to be perfect, and when I got it the unit was so dirty the service guy had to clean it off with a rag. Will not be recommending Clarke Basement Systems to anyone.

Basement waterproofing.

We had 2 cracks in our basement wall that were leaking and Clarke Basement Systems sent a rep to assess the work and give us an estimate. They came in and repaired the damage and left the area clean and neat. So far there have been no further issues.

Basement sump pump system was replaced with a double pump instead of a single

Clarke Basement Systems replaced our old single pump system to a double pump. This now provides us an emergency back up should the primary pump ever fail.
They did an excellent job as quoted and we are very happy with thier work.

Retaining Wall Straighten and Stabilize

Extremely pleased with the job Clarke Basement Systems did to salvage our retaining wall. It was old and leaning more and more with every passing year. We knew we'd soon have to get it worked on or taken down and replaced. CBS gave us a fair estimate and did not over-promise as to results. They ended up righting it to within a few degrees of perfectly vertical. Lovely. They used a unique geo-engineered solution that involved putting steel plates on the exterior of the wall and linking by means of 3/4" steel rods to a set of steel anchor plates buried under the driveway. Don, Austin and Nolan were punctual, pleasant and did it right.

Foundation repair

I’ve used Clarke’s 2x now & truly believe that they have the best product on the market. They have been very courteous & very clean each time they have been use. This time I priced out a couple of other companies & price wise they all are in the same range
