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.

This basement had a constant water problem that would disrupt the functionality of this home. Tired of a wet basement, the homeowner decided to call Connecticut Basement Systems for a permanent solution.
The solution to this basement was to install a full perimeter WaterGuard system to prevent water to enter the area. This system is installed around the perimeter of the basement and will collect water internally and channel it to the sump pump. The sump pump will then discharge the water away from the home. CleanSpace liner was also installed on the half wall around the basement to prevent any moisture or water from the coming through the walls. (You can see the liner in the after photo) This is exactly what the homeowner wanted and was pleased with the results!

Old sump pumps without covers like this one allow water vapor to evaporate back into the basement, creating more basement problems like mold. With the airtight lid on the SuperSump that we installed in its place, we were able to keep water in the sump pump system, and also keep out any dirt and debris that could clog a sump pump.

To make the space look cleaner and brighter, we went ahead and installed our CleanSpace Vapor Barrier. This will reduce moisture and humidity in the space, and will help seal out cold drafts this upcoming winter!
