    Customer Testimonial

              Hi Mick: My new waterproofing system is working great! Not a drop of water, even with the recent rains. I can't tell you how relieved and happy I am to have my basement pump-out days and the four or more inches of standing water behind me. I can't thank you, your office folks (Jen, Traci, etc.), and Al and his crew enough for the quick scheduling and great service. The installation crew was polite, professional, informative, efficient, clean, and considerate to the max. Thank You!

    This Fairfield homeowner had an uninviting and damp basement, which prevented her from utilizing the area. She wanted a waterproofed basement that would also be pleasant to use and look at. After researching all of her options, she decided to give Connecticut Basement Systems a call!

    Our Design Specialist, Mick Foster, arrived to give a free home evaluation. He concluded that BrightWall Panels and ThermalDry Tiles would be the best option to prevent a wet basement as well as giving the area a fresh and clean look. With the approval of the homeowner, Sid Avis and his production team quickly went to work installing the products.

    The BrightWall Panels have concealed PVC drain lines that captures water before it reaches the inside of the basement, leading the water to a sump pump. The white panels give the basement a fresh and clean look!  

    All ThermalDry Basement Floor Tiles come equipped with pegs that raise the tiles from the basement floor, creating a thermal barrier that makes them 8-10 degrees warmer than tiles bonded directly to the floor. This product also protects your basement from the humidity seeping through concrete, keeping a basement comfortable and dry. Not only are these two products a great waterproof solution, but they instantly transform any basement to beautiful!

    After

    Before we arrived at this Fairfield home, the basement was unpleasant and damp. The homeowner wanted a solution to keep her basement dry and also wanted a serious upgrade in appearance. She called Connecticut Basement Systems to set an appointment for her free home inspection knowing that they are the experts in all things basementy! 

    Our Design Specialist, Mick Foster, arrived to give a free home evaluation. He concluded that a TripleSafe Sump Pump would be the perfect solution for this wet basement. This patented sump pump is different from others because there are three pumps for ultimate protection. The first pump collect water at its lowest level of water capacity.

In case of a power outage, the third pump has a battery backup system and will be able to pump 11,500 gallons or more on a fully charged battery! This system ensures that your basement will be dry all year around.
