I cannot say enough about my experience with CT Basement Systems on this project, and I am a pretty "hard grader" on stuff like this. Our sales rep, Tarn Granucci, was very knowledgeble and spent a lot of time with us designing the right solution. We had a work crew on site for two days and they worked incredibly hard both days. The quality of the work was very good, as was the cleanup afterwards (these are messy projects). System has been running for close to a year, with no problems. Fantastic service experience overall!

This old crawlspace was letting water into this Larchmont, NY home. Using our CleanSpace liner, which acts as a vapor barrier, we were able to waterproof this home.
We transformed this old, drafty, wet crawlspace into a neat, dry storage space using CleanSpace liner and SilverGlo insulation.
Water was seeping into this crawlspace until our team came in and installed the CleanSpace liner, which acts as a vapor barrier and prevents water from entering the home.
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. The homeowners can now look forward to a dry basement.
This before and after demonstrates a floor transformation done by Garfield Sanderson and his production team. The flooring before was an eyesore to enter the basement and were constantly cold and uninviting. The homeowner had called Connecticut Basement Systems to help recommend flooring options to brighten and protect his basement from water.
ThermalDry Elite flooring was installed efficiently and professionally to this basement. The Light Pecan color truly looks stunning in this space. ThermalDry Elite Plank Flooring is made from completely inorganic material which will protect against mold or water damage. It also has insulated material creates a thermal break that will make the floors 10 degrees warmer.

This crawl space used to be wet, cold, and humid. Its air leaks and lack of insulation made the house above drafty and cold during the winter. However, fiberglass insulation can't hold up in crawl space conditions; the moisture that so often plagues the area reduces the effectiveness of fiberglass. SilverGlo™ insulation is the superior choice for a dry, energy-efficient crawl space. It combines highly effective graphite-impregnated insulation with a built-in radiant heat barrier surface. This gives your crawl space walls an unbroken plane of R-11 insulation, while sealing your walls from outside moisture and humidity infiltration.
The right insulation and a vapor barrier prevent mold and moisture problems and keep the home comfortable year-round!
When we arrived at this crawlspace, it was humid and debris-filled. Moisture from the outside would seep into the area, leading to high humidity and mold problems in other areas of the house. We installed the CleanSpace vapor barrier on the floors of the crawlspace. This durable, bright white crawl space liner prevents water vapor and humidity from passing through. By keeping your crawl space dry with CleanSpace, you protect your structure and insulation from mold and rot!
This Fairfield home had an outdated sump pump that was not doing its job correctly. The homeowner wanted a solution to replace their sump pump to ensure that their home will not have any water issues. He decided to call Connecticut Basement Systems in order to find a solution for his basement.
Garfield Sanderson and his production team installed a TripleSafe Sump Pump into the home. This TripleSafe is a great choice because it provides three levels of protection against water for any basement. The first pump is for normal functions when water wants to enter the basement. The second pump is for heavy volumes of water or in case the primary pump fails. If for any reason, the first pumps fail or the home has a power outage, there is the UltraSump battery backup sump pump which can pump 11,500 gallons or more on a fully charged battery! The TripleSafe Sump Pump looks great in this after photo, just look at the difference!
Now, this homeowner has a peace of mind that his basement will stay dry all year long with the TripleSafe Sump Pump thanks to Connecticut Basement Systems!
When we arrived at this Stratford, CT crawl space, it was a damp, debris-filled space. The old fiberglass insulation was falling from the ceiling because it was too waterlogged and heavy to stay up. We removed all the ineffective fiberglass insulation and replaced it with our SilverGlo insulation. SilverGlo combines highly effective graphite-impregnated insulation with a built-in radiant heat barrier surface. Combined with the TerraBlock floor insulation, we were able to seal the walls from outside moisture and humidity infiltration.
Groundwater was a problem for this Stratford, CT basement. It was seeping into the crawlspace and causing problems with humidity and mold. The SmartSump system provides excellent protection from groundwater leaks, and has the added benefits of a cast-iron Zoeller sump pump, a reliable liner, a sump alarm, and an optional battery backup sump pump. It's exactly what this crawl space needed to ensure a dry space all the time!
In this basement we installed Waterguard as well as a SuperSump pump to prevent any further flooding. On the outside of the house we added Iceguard to prevent water backing up into the house when the pipes freeze.
This West Haven crawl space flooded with 2 feet of water and the homeowners needed a solution to repair and prevent this damage from reoccurring. They quickly gave Connecticut Basement Systems a call to solve the problem.
Our System Design Specialist, Brad Glazer, quickly came to evaluate the situation. He concluded that the crawl space would need SmartJacks, a TripleSafe Sump Pump, a CleanSpace Liner and a Sanidry to repair the damage. With a plan set, Garfield Sanderson and his production team came to the home to start the project.
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.

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 installed a Trenchdrain, Waterguard, and Triple Safe sump pump to remove water from the basement. To fix the water damages walls we put in Cleanspace walls to prevent any further damage. We also added an Iceguard system to prevent freezing during the long New England winters.
With this crawl space we use our Cleanspace liner to create a clean dry space. Then installed our Sanidry air purifier dehumidifier specifically designed for crawl spaces.
Before we went to this Guilford home, the crawlspace was cold, damp, and had a smelly odor. The homeowners were concerned and wanted a solution to make sure that their crawlspace was in tip top shape. They decided to give Connecticut Basement Systems a call.
A CleanSpace, WaterGuard, and SuperSump pump were installed by Garfield Sanderson and his production crew. The CleanSpace Vapor Barrier will help prevent moisture from entering the basement which will ultimately keep the area dry. The WaterGuard System will channel into the SuperSump pump and discharge it away from the home. There was also Spray Foam installed on the walls to completely air seal the crawlspace to ensure that no air flow will enter the crawlspace. The combination of all these products satisfied all of the homeowner’s needs where the crawlspace was dry and the odor decreased.

When we arrived in this home, water was seeping through the stone foundation and making the basement wet and humid. To stop water from penetrating the home, we put up our CleanSpace vapor barrier over the walls. This bright white plastic barrier is 100% waterproof, and comes with a 25 year warranty for wear and tear. It redirects all water and humidity to the WaterGuard perimiter drain, where it can be pumped out of the house. Once the newly poured cement dries, the basement will remain dry for years to come!

This Durham crawlspace clearly had a lot of issue 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 crawlspace. The homeowners wanted to upgrade their crawlspace to have it be more welcoming and efficient so they would not have to worry about any consequences that happen with a poorly maintained crawlspace. They decided to set an appointment with Connecticut Basement Systems who are the experts in crawlspace 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 crawlspace.

This basement was taking on water. We installed a Waterguard and SuperSump Pump system to remove that water. Then we put in a Sanidry air purifier dehumidifier to keep the air dry and comfortable. On the outside of the house we installed a Iceguard to prevent water backup incase of pipe freezing during winter.
This Niantic home had constant water entering the basement and moisture was seeping through the walls. This was causing the home to become unpleasant with its dampness and musty odor. The homeowner wanted a clean, dry basement so she could utilize her space. She decided to call Connecticut Basement Systems to help find her a solution.
The solution for this basement was to install a WaterGuard system paired with CleanSpace. The WaterGuard system will collect the water internally and channel it to the TripleSafe Sump Pump.

This system will keep the basement dry. We also installed a CleanSpace liner to prevent moisture from seeping through the walls. With minimal moisture, the musty odor will be eliminated.
Once all these products were installed, the basement transformed into a healthier and cleaner area. This is exactly what the homeowner wanted and was thrilled with the products and her transformed basement.

In its place, we installed our SuperSump sump pump. It includes an airtight lid to keeps odors and humidity out of the room, while protecting your sump from debris from the basement floor. Rubber grommets around all pipes and wires help maintain the airtight lid and also help to keep all PVC pipes steady and quiet. Additionally, The SuperSump 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.

The solution for this basement was to install a WaterGuard System paired with a Triple Safe and SaniDry Sedona. The WaterGuard system will collect water internally and channel it to the TripleSafe sump pump. (you can see the WaterGuard System was placed where the wet cement is in the after photo) The TripleSafe sump pump will discharge the unwanted water properly away from the home. It even has back up pumps and batteries to ensure that the basement will stay dry even during the heaviest of storms and outages. Lastly, a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier was installed to keep humidity below 55% to ensure healthier air quality and a more comfortable basement to be in. This is exactly what the homeowner had wanted and was pleased with the results.
Before we came in, the crawlspace had no access well. It was a hole in the side of the home that was open to any bugs, rodents, water, or even people that came in. We installed a Turtl access well. This airtight covered well is made of durable plastic, so it will never corrode or rot. It also has the added benefit of being lockable, for guaranteed security.
The old support posts in this crawl space were sinking, causing the floor above them to sag. To prevent any structural issues in the future, including wall cracks and unsafe floors, we installed SmartJacks. SmartJacks are a permant solution to the sagging floors, and can be ajusted to push the floor back up to the exact position it was originally. The owners of this home can rest easy knowing that their home is well-supported.
