    EverLast Windows in Pelham Manor, NY

    Before, this Pelham Manor home had old, insufficient windows that not only looked unpleasant but caused drafts in the basement. The basement was being waterproofed by us and the homeowner decided to upgrade the windows as well. 

    Now, the old windows were replaced with our EverLast windows. These are the superior choice of windows for a basement because they are energy-efficient, vinyl-framed and are designed with double-paned, low-E glass. The windows will not rust and allow in a lot of natural light into the area. The energy efficient windows that eliminate drafts are exactly what the homeowner wanted and was pleased with the results. Just look at the transformation! You can also see the Ice Guards next to the windows, which are associated with the waterproofing system in the basement that help prevent water from freezing when being discharged. 

    Do you need to upgrade your windows? Give us a call to schedule a free, no maintenance estimated! 800-541-0487

    Waterproofing Installation in Easton, CT

    The sump pump in this Easton, CT had finally kicked the bucket, and the family living in the home wanted to do something about it. They gave us a call at Connecticut Basement Systems, and we were happy to come and solve the problem!

    Our System Design Specialist, Keith Rongey, came out and quickly diagnosed the problem. This family needed a new waterproofing system, and they needed one fast. He sent out Kryz Wilk and his team to get the job done! The first thing he installed was a brand new TripleSafe sump pump. This three pump system comes with a backup battery so you never have to worry about water getting into your basement ever again! We also installed a TrenchDrain at the entry way of the basement, so the water is captured easily and brought to the sump pump. 

    This family now has a safer waterproofing system, and a basement they can use! Call us TODAY for your free waterproofing estimate!

    BrightWall in Trumbull, CT

    This Trumbull homeowner had a dirty, cold, and damp basement. He wanted a solution to not only control moisture, but something that would make his basement aesthetically pleasing. He decided to give Connecticut Basements Systems a call since they are the experts in all things basementy!

    Keith Rongey was the System Design Specialist who came to the house to give him a free home evaluation. He concluded, that in order to prevent water vapor from entering through the walls, BrightWall Panels would need to be installed. BrightWall panels will direct wall seepage down to the perimeter drain lines that carry water to a sump pump. Not only will BrightWall keep this area dry, but the clean white panels instantly transformed this unpleasant basement into a beautiful one! (as seen in the after picture)  

    Cisco and his production team got to work and quickly transformed this Trumbull basement. Just look at the incredible work they did. Now, the homeowner can enjoy a dry and beautiful basement.

    Finished Basement in Glastonbury, CT

    Before, this unfinished basement in Glastonbury, CT was uninviting and not utilized to its fullest potential. The homeowner was seeking an area that was welcoming for all to enjoy. With some design ideas in mind, he contacted the professionals at Connecticut Basement Systems to make his vision a reality. 

    After the transformation, the finished basement can now be utilized to its fullest potential. MillCreek Mahogany Flooring was installed to create the same look and feel of genuine hardwood, but without the drawbacks that wood would create in a moist basement environment. EverLast panels were installed to finish the walls of the basement. The benefits of these wall panels are that they are strong, durable and waterproof! Finishing touches such as ceiling tiles and wrap posts were installed to really transform this basement to beautiful! The homeowner is thrilled with his dry, finished basement!
