This basement was in need of repair. We put in a waterguard and triplesafe sump pump to remove water from the basement. Once waterproofed we removed that water damaged walls and installed Cleanspace walls to prevent any futher water damage. Lastly we added a Sanidry air purifier dehumidifier to keep the basement dry and comfortable.
This Sleepy Hollow, NY home had cracking and bowing walls that was caused from soil expansion. The homeowner was very concerned for the safety of his home and wanted to take care of the problem immediately. After doing some research, he decided to set an appointment with Connecticut Basement Systems to help find him a solution.
Glen Kerpchar was the Sales Representative who arrived at the home the day of the appointment. He concluded that in order to fix the bowing of the walls, Carbon Armor would need to be installed. He explained the benefits of the product and the homeowner agreed that this was the best solution and quickly set an appointment for a production date.
On the day of production, Victor Alves and his crew installed the CarbonArmor. The CarbonArmor is a great product because it stabilizes your home’s foundation walls by using fiber-reinforced polymers which are 10-times stronger than steel. The ArmorLock brackets bind and secure the Carbon Armor straps to the floor joists making it a great solution, non-invasive, and ideal for stabilizing bowing and leaning walls.
With the CarbonArmor fully installed, the homeowner now has a peace of mind of the structure of his home!

The owners of this home wanted extra living space, but their basement was too cold and wet to be used for anything but storage. To create the perfect basement environment, we first had to waterproof the space. We installed WaterGuard around the perimeter of the basement, and a TripleSafe sump pump to push the water out of the home. Next, we put ThermalDry carpeting on the floor, which keeps the floor 8-10 degrees warmer than the concrete underneath! Our ZenWall panels were the finishing touch on this Oxford home!
The owners of this home were looking for a beautiful, maintenance-free way to upgrade their basement. In addition to providing a finished wall surface, our ZenWall panels provide moisture and cold protection. Each ZenWall panel has an insulated core and a reflective radiant barrier backing. Working together, these features kept this basement more comfortable and eliminated contact with cold, clammy concrete walls!
Damp basement conditions can easily ruin certain flooring materials –like plywood, oriented strand board (OSB) and carpeting installed directly over a basement slab floor. It’s messy, expensive and discouraging to remove moisture-damaged materials from your basement. At Connecticut Basement Systems, we have a solution to this common problem: ThermalDry floor tiles. The high-density PVC plastic used to form the body of ThermalDry flooring tiles is strong, durable and immune to moisture damage! The underside of each ThermalDry tile features nubbed construction to create a drainage plane as well as a thermal break to shield your feet from the cold concrete floor.
Water used to seep through the walls and floor of this New Haven, CT crawlspace and cause mold, rot, and other moisture-related problems. To create a dry environment, we encapsulated the space with our CleanSpace vapor barrier on the floor and SilverGlo insulation on the walls. Water can't pass through either product! The encapsulation treatment totally separates and protects the crawl space interior from outdoor conditions, keeping the space clean and dry.
During heavy rains, this crawlspace would flood with water. Because it lacked a drainage system, the water would sit in the space for weeks at a time. To pump water out of the crawl space and collect groundwater before it enters the home, we installed the SmartSump sump pump. Along with a cast-iron Zoeller sump pump, the SmartSump includes a floor drain to collect water from plumbing leaks and a WaterWatch sump pump alarm that will sound off to notify the owners of water in the crawl space. The homeowners can reast easy knowing that their crawl space wil stay dry, even in heavy rainstorms!
This old crawlspace used to leak through the walls and floor, causing mold to grow. To keep moisture out of the home, we put in our CleanSpace liner on the floor. This durable, bright white crawl space liner prevents water vapor and humidity from passing through. With a 25-year warranty against rips and tears, this durable liner will convert your crawl space into a usable storage area. And with its mold-resistant additive "UltraFresh", CleanSpace will never support mildew or mold growth on its surface.
Here we have a wet before and after pictures of a previously existing pump system that not longer was doing it's job in Litchfield, CT. Installing our Super Sump Pump to replacae the old pump system, this basement is on it's way to a dry future!
This Windsor basement had insufficient windows because they were filled with debris and allowed air flow to enter through the basement. This caused for an energy deficient home. The homeowners wanted a solution to make their home more comfortable and esthetically pleasing. After doing some research, they decided to set an appointment with Connecticut Basement Systems learning that they are the experts in all things basementy!
Glen Kerpchar was the Sales Representative who arrived at the home to evaluate the situation. He concluded that Everlast windows and Rim Joist insulation would be the perfect solution for the home. The Everlast windows will eliminate drafts that waste energy and compromise comfort. The windows feature all-vinyl construction that will prevent mold support, corrosion and rot. Another benefit is that they allow a lot of natural light into the basement. Rim Joist insulation will solve the air leakage problem and will create a more energy efficient home.
Eight Everlast windows and the Rim Joist insulation were installed by Krzystof and his production team efficiently and professionally. The homeowner was very impressed of the products and how well they worked. She can now enjoy her home with a peace of mind that her basement is well insulated.
