I have been with Connecticut Basement System’s Total Basement Finishing division since 2014. Each week, I get extensive training from the most experienced basement finishing professionals in the country right in Seymour, CT at our International Dealer Network Headquarters. In this time, I have worked with hundreds of homeowners just like you to create more usable living space in their homes. My team and I work extremely well together and trust each other to achieve the highest quality results.
Before, this West Haven basement would get unwanted water seeping through the area. This greatly frustrated the homeowner because he used his basement as a place to relax and enjoy. He wanted to waterproof the area so this would not become a problem anymore. After doing much research, he decided to trust the experts at Connecticut Basement Systems.
To ensure that water would not enter the basement anymore, a WaterGuard system was installed paired with a TripleSafe sump pump system. The WaterGuard is a below the floor system that collects water internally and channeling it to the TripleSafe sump pump. From the TripleSafe, the water is discharged away from the home. A SaniDry Sedona was also installed to keep humidity low which will increase the quality of air. There was water damage on the walls that was attracting mold and was not appealing. To solve this problem, we installed a half wall restoration system to the walls, essentially removing the bottom water damaged wall and replacing with our EverLast paneling which will prevent mold. ThermalDry Charcoal Carpet was also installed to give the basement a finished look. The homeowner is now extremely satisfied with his dry and healthier basement!
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 Marlborough basement had a water issue that would make the finished area unwelcoming with damp carpet and a musty odor. The homeowner wanted her finished basement to be usable and practical. After doing some research, she decided to contact the experts at Connecticut Basement Systems for a permanent solution.
The solution for this basement was to install DryTrak Baseboard Drain Pipe System. This system was necessary in this basement because it had monolithic flooring. We epoxy the drain pipe directly to the floor, leaving a slight opening along the top to collect water leaking in from the walls. Therefore, the basement is waterproofed without jackhammering! Half wall restoration was also performed to fix the damage that was caused by the water. The homeowner also decided to get rid of the original carpet and install ThermalDry Flooring to give the area a completed look. As you can see in the after photo, the basement was transformed to a dry and more comfortable area which is exactly what the homeowner had wanted!
Before, this Marlborough, CT basement had leaky basement walls. As moisture frequently made its way inside the home, it left behind unsightly stains on the walls and floors, and made the home susceptible to mold growth and further water damage. Hoping to protect his home from this problem, he reached out to the experts at Connecticut Basement Systems. Soon after, Sales Representative Glen Knafel arrived to evaluate the basement.
By the time the job was finished our experienced Foreman, Kevon Barnett, had gotten rid of the basement’s unsightly stains and solved its moisture issues. First, he installed WaterGuard, our patented perimeter drainage system, which catches water leaks where they begin and channels them to a sump pump. Then he installed Zen Walls throughout the basement, which prevent air and moisture from flowing into the basement space, and add give the room a clean, finished look. The homeowner was excited with the results, and happy to have a dry, clean basement.
Before, this Marlborough, CT basement had a leaky basement. The incoming water left behind unwanted stains on the walls and floors. Plus, all this excess moisture in the basement made the home susceptible to mold growth, which can be a significant health issue for home owners. Hoping to protect his home from this problem, the homeowner reached out to the experts at Connecticut Basement Systems. Soon after, Sales Representative Glen Knafel arrived to evaluate the basement.
Production Foreman Kevon Barnett traveled to the home not long after that, and quickly got to work eliminating the basement’s stains and moisture issues. First, he installed WaterGuard, our patented perimeter drainage system, which catches water leaks at the base of the basement walls and channels them to a sump pump, where they are pumped away from the home. In this case, that sump pump was our most reliable pump, the TripleSafe. The TripleSafe includes a primary pump, a secondary pump that kicks in when the pump has to deal with heavy leaks, and a battery powered backup pump that is ready to take over in the case of a power outage. Finally, he installed Zen Walls throughout the basement, which prevent air and moisture from flowing into the basement space, and give the room a clean, finished look. The homeowner was pleased with the results, and happy to find peace of mind in knowing that his basement is well protected against water leaks.
