Before, this Danbury, CT home had basement windows that caused a draft, were filled with debris and just unappealing. The homeowner wanted efficient windows that also had an appealing look for her Cape Cod home. She knew the experts at Connecticut Basement Systems would be able to help.
Our Sales Representative, Doug, was able to show the homeowner the features of our EverLast window inserts and SunHouse window well. These basement windows will not rust or rot because they’re built with reinforced vinyl frames. Plus, they feature a double-pane, insulated glass to prevent major heat loss. The SunHouse window wells are durable, prevents weeds from growing with its solid base, and its light color and curved form directs sunlight into the basement! The homeowner loved these solutions and with these simple upgrades, she was thrilled with her efficient and beautiful basement windows and window wells!
This Fairfield, CT basement had an open sewer line, which was unattractive and a hazard while people were downstairs. Due to water issues in this basement, the previous wall panels had also been damaged. The homeowners wanted to cover the sewer line and create a clean, usable space and they knew to trust this project with the experts!
Our great foreman Chavon and his crew were able to cover up the line by building a room with EverLast walls and a door to give the line easy access. The new EverLast walls also fixed the previously damaged walls and created a new clean, long-lasting look.
The homeowners were ecstatic with how the room came out. They now have a long-lasting clean, safe space where their family can enjoy time together.
This cluttered basement needed help, and Connecticut Basement Systems came to the rescue. A leakage problem was destroying the floor tiles and causing them to lift up. The water was also causing damage to the wall panels and doors. The owners wanted to fix all the issues so they could use this wide-open space for family time.
Thanks to Chavon and his crew, this basement was turned into a wonderfully open and clean space. To fix the damaged areas, ThermalDry flooring was installed in the lovely color Sandstone chosen by the owners. Along with the upgrades, EverLast Walls and new doors were installed which gave a new, clean look to the damaged areas and prevents future damages.
The homeowners were pleased with this job well done. Added to the space under the stair was a little nook area, perfect for owners’ grandchildren to play while the family enjoys the rest of the new space.
Thanks to our salesman Doug for going out and being able to get before and after shots so we are able to see this spectacular transformation!
Before, this Trumbull, CT home had over a foot of water in the basement! Due to the home being foreclosed, the property manager immediately called the experts at Connecticut Basement Systems to provide a permanent solution to waterproof the basement.
Our Sales Representative, Doug Wheeler, put on his rainboots, took measurements and proposed a permanent basement solution. The property manager agreed to the job and the work was scheduled to accommodate the urgency of the situation. Once the water was pumped out of the area by a restoration company, our project was able to begin. Foreman, Cisco Berrios, and his team worked a long 2 days to install a Watergaurd System paired with a TripleSafe Sump Pump.
Now, this home with a dry basement is ready to be sold to a future homeowner!
Before, this Milford, CT basement had a water problem every time it rained. Not wanting to wet vac each time a rain storm passed through, the homeowner decided to trust the experts to waterproof her basement.
Our Sales Representative, Doug, arrived at the home to inspect the problem and propose a permanent solution. Since the foundation of this home is monolithic, the best system to solve the water problem would be our DryTrak system paired with a Triple Safe sump pump. The DryTrak system will capture water between the wall and floor joints, in addition to water seepage from the floor. The homeowner was thrilled that there was a solution for her wet basement and went through with the project. Our Foreman Marcio and his crew were able to install this system within 2 days and now the homeowner has the peace of mind of a dry basement all year around!
Before, this Waterbury, CT home had a basement waterproofing system that was installed by another company. One night during a storm, the home lost power and the basement had flooded. The homeowner knew that she needed a permanent, reliable waterproofing system for her basement and decided to contact the experts at Connecticut Basement Systems.
Our professional Sales Representative, Doug Wheeler, came to the home to assess the situation. He immediately discovered an insufficient sump pump that contributed to the wet basement - it was just single sump in a generic liner with a lid. After the evaluation, Doug proposed a plan to permanently waterproof the basement. This included replacing the insufficient sump pump with our superior TripleSafe sump pump. Our most reliable sump pump system, the TripleSafe, provides three levels of protection in case of a power outage, our UltraSump battery, set at the highest level, will pump 11,500 gallons or more on a fully charged battery!
Now, this basement is bone dry and the homeowner could not be happier!
This Waterbury, CT homeowner previously had an exterior discharge line that went through her entire yard. When the line froze in the winter months, it caused the water to have nowhere else to go but back into the house. This homeowner needed to prevent flooding in their basement.
We were able to help our customer by burying our discharge line and installing our patented IceGuards. They allow water to escape and not back up into the house, even if the drain freezes. Our IceGuards are unique because they stop ice and snow from causing your waterproofing system to fail.
The homeowner was pleased with the work done, their basement is now waterproofed and there are no lines through on their yard.
Thanks to our salesman Doug for going out to this job and taking the wonderful transformation pictures!
This Durham crawlspace clearly had a lot of issues before we arrived to transform this space. The traditional fiber glass insulation was falling apart, there was a dirt floor that made the area look unwelcoming, and there was air and moisture entering the crawl space. The homeowners wanted to upgrade their crawl space to have it be more welcoming and efficient so they would not have to worry about any consequences that happen with a poorly maintained crawl space. They decided to set an appointment with Connecticut Basement Systems who are the experts in crawl space repairs.
Doug Wheeler was the Sales Representative who arrived at the home to give a free home evaluation. He concluded that CleanSpace Liner paired with a SaniDry Sedona would be the perfect solution for these Durham homeowners. After explaining the benefits of each product and having the homeowners understand how these products will improve their home’s efficiency, they quickly scheduled for a production date.
Garfield Sanderson and his production team installed the products efficiently and professionally. The CleanSpace Liner acts as a moisture barrier to prevent any unwanted air or water from entering the crawl space. Wrapping the piers would also be beneficial to the crawlspace, as seen in the after photo. The SaniDry Sedona will keep the humidity low in the crawl space which will prevent any mold growth.
The crawlspace is now a much healthier environment and the homeowners were impressed with the crawlspace transformation. The homeowners were very pleased with the work that was done by Connecticut Basement Systems.

Before, this Avon, CT basement had an open space where the stairs connected to the Bilco door. Not only was this an eyesore, but it would let in an uncomfortable draft, welcome critters to the basement, and allow water seepage to the space. The homeowner wanted a dry, pleasant basement in order to sell his home.
The solution we provided was to install a full perimeter WaterGuard system paired with TrenchDrains and a TripleSafe sump pump. In addition, our Total Basement Finishing door was installed. A warrantied door will help prevent the uncomfortable drafts, water from entering the space and deter critters, too! With this dry and pleasant basement, the homeowner was able to sell his home within two months.
Before, this Avon, CT basement had no rim joist insulation in their basement. With no insulation in the rim joists, unwanted drafts and water seepage can enter the space. This homeowner was eager to sell the home and knew that a few improvements for the basement would be needed to accomplish that goal.
Our solution was to install Spray Foam to the rim joists. The advantages to our Spray Foam are its superior R-value, complete coverage, effective air barrier and is waterproof. The homeowner was very pleased, and his investment paid off when he was able to sell his home within two months!
