    The idea of such a big and expensive project was very stressful, but everyone I dealt with from beginning to end was a pleasure. First it was Brad who was great during his evaluation. He was very helpful and informative. After meeting with him i felt very confident in going forward with the project. Next was Cheryl who was a terrific in quickly and efficiently setting up the financing. When I met Sid on the first day of the job I was instantly impressed with him. He and his Crew did a fantastic job installing a perimeter drain, sump pump dehumidifier, flooring and ZenWall. Sid was very conscientious about the work and I was very pleasantly surprised by how quickly and cleanly they worked. Thank you all, we are very satisfied with our new livable basement space.

    This is a set of before and afters in a basement in Greenwich. The original sump pump had a dirty open hole which someone tried to cover up with a piece of wood. Anything could fall in and clog up the system this way. We replaced it with our SuperSump® Premier Pump System.

    The SuperSump® includes a powerful Zoeller® ⅓ horsepower cast-iron sump pump, capable of pumping 2,500 gallons of water per hour out of your basement.

    The SuperSump® can be installed with an optional UltraSump® Battery Backup Sump Pump, which can pump out 11,500 gallons or more on a single charge!

    In this Stamford home the homeowners would have water coming in during heavy rains. The water would come into the home and pool which would damage the walls, since the water had nowhere else to go since there wasn't and existing sump pump. The homeowners called the experts at CT Basement Systems and we made their waterproofing worries go away with just one visit. We installed our SuperSump® premier pump system . Our pump helps keep basements dry because it includes a powerful Zoeller® ⅓ horsepower cast-iron sump pump, capable of pumping 2,220 gallons of water per hour at an 8-foot head out of your basement.

  • ThermalDry in Stratford, CT
    Before
    ThermalDry in Stratford, CT
    After

    This Stratford basement originally had unappealing, cold floors. Of all of the surfaces in your home, floors are the ones you come in most contact with. Not only were these floors an eye-sore, but this made the basement cold and unwelcoming. This homeowner wanted a flooring system in his basement that was waterproof, appealing and warm. After some research, he decided to give Connecticut Basement Systems a call. 

    Our Sales Representative, Brad Glazer proposed that the homeowner should install ThermalDry Carpet. This product is stain resistant, does not support mold or mildew, and will keep a floor dry and warm all year long. With approval from the homeowner, Sid Avis and his production team installed the ThermalDry Carpet efficiently and professionally. They even mix and matched two different carpet styles to create this checkered look for added appeal. 

    Now the homeowner enjoys a lovely and warm basement floor!

  • Waterproofing in Sandy Hook CT
    Before
    Waterproofing in Sandy Hook CT
    After

    This Sandy Hook home had water seeping in through the cements walls underneath the insulation and made its way into the drywall damaging it. The homeowners called the experts at CT Basement Systems and Brad  diagnosed the issue and fixed it. To guide the water out of the home we installed our WaterGuard below floor drain. The WaterGuard is installed in a bed of gravel on top of the foundation footing which keeps it out of the "mud zone". The water is then collected and pumped out of the home by our premier SuperSump which is capable of pumping 2,200 gallons of water per hour. Because the previous insulation was damaged we installed our ThermalDry Basement Radiant Wall Barrier. The ThermalDry® Wall system protects the finished basement from moisture and water that passes through concrete foundation walls. This product serves as both a vapor barrier and also as a way to redirect water leaking through the basement walls into the drainage system below.

  • Basement Waterproofing in Seymour, CT
    Before

We also installed our WaterGuard Fren Drain System which is our patented drain system that is designed to never clog. The drain system is put in in the ground but above the foundation footing and then cemented to be covered up. 

     

    The homeowners no longer have to worry about anymore water damaging their home.

    Smart Jacks were installed to the crawl space to stabilize sagging beams and provide a secure environment, supporting loads of more than 60,000 pounds. Then, a TripleSafe Sump Pump was installed to keep the basement dry with the protection of its 3-pump system. CleanSpace Liner was placed in the crawlspace, which is the durable white material seen in the after photo. The CleanSpace Liner prevents water vapor and humidity from passing through the walls and floors. Lastly, the Sanidry was installed to control humidity and prevent basement mold and mildew. The combination of all of these basement waterproofing products will ensure a pleasant dry crawl space.

    As you can see from the after picture, this West Haven crawl space is in perfect order and is waterproof. Now these homeowners can enjoy their basement again and are worry free of having a flood destroy their space again thanks to Connecticut Basement Systems.
