This Greenwich, CT crawl space had dirt floors and exposed walls with no insulation. This caused the main level of the home to have cold floors, which leads to high energy bills. The homeowner wanted to find a solution that would make his crawl space more efficient, so he did some research on the internet for the best solution and decided to do the project with the experts at Connecticut Basement Systems.
Our salesman, Vin Orsini, came to meet the homeowner and assess the issues at hand. Vin quickly identified what was causing the uncomfortable temperatures and spoke to the homeowner about some potential solutions. On the day of production, foreman Marcial Lopez and his crew arrived to get the project under way. They solved the problem by installing CleanSpace liner, SilverGlo, and proper rim joist insulation. The CleanSpace liner prevents all moisture from seeping through the floors, and also turns dirt floors into a tidy, usable area. SilverGlo keeps the area insulated, lining the walls with a reflective barrier. To make sure that no air sneaks above the crawl space walls and into the home, rim joist insulation was installed as well. The homeowner was thrilled with the results, and quickly noticed an improvement in the comfort and energy efficiency of his home.
This Stamford, CT home had a basement that was suffering from serious water damage. Water had been leaking in at the seam where this basement wall meets the floor, and was causing the base of the wall to rot away. This leak was turning the basement into an eyesore, and made it susceptible to mold growth. Seeking a solution for his problem, the homeowner did some online research and decided to schedule an appointment with the experts at Connecticut Basement Systems.
Soon after, sales representative Gary Meglino traveled to the home and met with the homeowner. Gary entered the basement and made an efficient assessment of the problem, then shared his findings with the homeowner. Together, they found the solution that would work best for him and his home. In the end, they agreed that the best option was to correct the problem using WaterGuard and CleanSpace.
WaterGuard is a patented below-floor drain that is installed along the inside perimeter of the basement walls. As water leaks into the basement, WaterGuard catches it and directs it to a sump pump, which then pumps the water up and out of the basement. Foreman Marcial Lopez and his crew are well-experienced at installing products like WaterGuard, so when they arrived to begin production, they worked carefully and efficiently to rid the home of all basement leaks. Once WaterGuard was installed, the crew finished up by installing CleanSpace along the base of the basement walls where they had worked. CleanSpace is ideal for jobs like this because it acts as a vapor barrier, preventing water vapor and humidity from passing into the basement. This limits basement moisture and helps to prevent mold growth.
When the team had finished, the homeowner was thrilled with the results. The unightly damage to his wall was gone, and so was the leak that caused it. The homeowner thanked the crew for their work and took comfort in knowing that his basement water issue had been solved.
Before, this New Canaan, CT crawl space was a dirty, moisture-filled area that the homeowner wanted to transform into a clean, dry usable space. The space was not in the best condition to be utilized, with falling batt insulation and unhealthy air quality due to unwanted moisture. The homeowner wanted to increase the value of her home with a practical, dry crawlspace.
Now that we installed our CleanSpace barrier, rim joist insulation, TripleSafe sump pump and a Sanidry Sedona, the space is now dry and can be utilized for storage. The combination of our products prevents moisture from entering the space, resulting in a dry, beautiful space. The homeowner is ecstatic with the transformation!
Before, the window well on the side of this home was an eyesore for these Trumbull, CT homeowners. The flimsy plastic cover had bent and warped over time, letting in a mess of water, leaves, and weeds. This caused the metal window well to grow dirty and rusty, and reduced the amount of natural light that could enter the basement.
Now, the window well sits subtly on the side of the house, free of dirt, mud and other debris. To transform this aspect of the home, our skilled foreman, Marcial Lopez, replaced the homeowners’ traditional metal window well with our SunHouse Basement Window Enclosure. SunHouse enclosures feature a durable plastic cover to keep outside forces away from your basement windows, ensuring a more pleasant view from both inside and outside the home. Unlike other window well designs, the SunHouse enclosure has a light-colored bottom, which allows more sunlight to bounce into the basement, maximizing natural light in the homeowner’s below-ground living space.
Although this was just one piece of a larger home improvement project, the homeowners took notice of their window well transformation, and now enjoy the many positive impacts that this SunHouse Enclosure has made on their home.
Before, this Hebron, CT basement had been damaged from moisture leaking in through its old basement walls. To make matters worse, the home’s water heater and other mechanical units often caused condensation, and sent more water dripping onto the ground. A wet basement like this can cause damage to the home and create an unhealthy living environment, so the homeowner reached out to Connecticut Basement Systems. Soon after, Sales Representative Bryan Buckley traveled to the home to help formulate a solution.
After, Connecticut Basement Systems Foreman Marcial Lopez installed CleanSpace vapor barrier to the walls, which brightens up the basement walls and prevents moisture from entering the basement from outside. A Trench Drain was also installed around the water heater to help rid the basement of moisture resulting from condensation. Now, the homeowner can rest easy knowing that his basement is protected from water leaks and excess moisture.
