    The information packet is a smart marketing tool because it discusses the PROBLEM, the SOLUTIONS and not just your company. Others have told me their only regret was that they hadn't done the work earlier. I'm confident that I too will feel that way.

    By Ben L.
    Fairfield, CT

    I am very happy with the work done by Connecticut Basement Systems and the whole process. Everyone I dealt with, beginning with my first meeting with Joe P. to the office staff and installers, was very professional and gave me all the info I needed. The job was done quick and came out perfect (and 100% dry). I only wish I had done it years earlier so I could have been using the space in my basement rather than avoiding it due to the water issues.

    Customer Testimonial

              I wanted to let you know how pleased I was with the crew you sent to my house. They were courteous, professional, and thoroughly competent. That ugly crawl space has been transformed and Marcio even installed the same material on the lower part of the walls in the basement itself. They didn’t have to remove the stairs so that saved me the added expense of a carpenter. So far I’m thoroughly satisfied and can’t wait to go down to the basement after the next heavy rain and not walk into a puddle of water. I will happily recommend Connecticut Basements to anyone in need.

Case Studies I've worked on:

  • Crawl Space repair in Hartsdale NY
    Before
    Crawl Space repair in Hartsdale NY
    After

    The P. family had continuing moisture problems in their Hartsdale home and needed it fixed once and for all. They contacted the experts at CT Basement Systems and Richard our certified crawlspace repair specialist fixed all of their concerns. We took their damp dark crawlspace and transformed it into this beautiful crawlspace above with the help of our CleanSpace Crawl Space Vapor Barrier. Along with protection from mold and rot, a dry crawl space will also be inhospitable to termites, cockroaches, ants, crickets, and many other pests that need excess moisture to survive. Mice and rats are deterred by the plastic vapor barrier, and flooding waters will be kept at bay. Our Sanidry CX was also installed to make sure any moisture that was in the air would be removed. The hom owner now can rest assured that they will no longer have any moisture issues in their crawl space.

     
  • Basement Waterproofing Norwalk CT
    Before
    Basement Waterproofing Norwalk CT
    After

    The R. Family had continuous water coming in through the walls in their basement. The water would seep in through the walls and rest on the ground in a pool of water. The homeowners wanted a fix to the water issue since from the picture you can see the mold on the walls. The homeowners contacted the experts at Connecticut Basement Systems and our basement waterproofing expert Len Fletcher made sure no more water would come in. We installed our WaterGuard French drain system to guide the water that comes in out of the basement. The WaterGuard is an exceptional product in that because it sits under the ground but above the foundation footing to prevent any clogging from happening. The water will be guided into our TripleSafe Sump Pump system. The sump pump has three pumps to ensure ALL the water is pumped out. The first pump which sits the lowest is the first to turn on, but if it can’t handle the amount of water coming in then the second pumps turns on to assist the first. The third pump only turns on if the power goes out but it has the capability to pump as much as half of a swimming pool. To encapsulate the walls from any moisture or any more mold being created we installed our CleanSpace Wall encapsulation system. The Special material is waterproof and does not allow the moisture from the outside to get into the home. The home owners will no longer need to worry about anymore water damaging their basement.

    Here we have a before and after of a basement located in Wilton, CT. Before it was a gray, bland, lifeless basement where the owners could not take advantage of their own space. Now, after installing our thermal dry parquet tile to the floor, it brightens and opens up the room making it more inviting for whatever potential the owners have in mind. These homeowners took advantage of the space and created an in home gym!

  • TripleSafe Sump Pump in Wilton, CT
    Before
    TripleSafe Sump Pump in Wilton, CT
    After

    This old, open sump pump wasn't doing its job. It kept clogging, and water would evaporate out of it and cause the basement to be humid. We replaced it with our TripleSafe sump pump. Its airtight cover reduces sump pump noise and keeps dirt and debris from falling in. Additionally, TripleSafe's oversize plastic sump liner contains 3 sump pumps that can work together or separately depending on pumping demands. With the TripleSafesystem, you don't have to worry about high pumping demands that can overwhelm or burn out single-pump systems. And if there's a power outage, your TripleSafe system will keep operating, thanks to a battery-powered backup pump.

    The walls of this basement used to be plain, cold concrete. We covered them with our ZenWall panels. Each ZenWall panel has an insulated core and a reflective radiant barrier backing.

In addition to being warm, these walls also give the basement a bright, clean look, transforming the once drab space into a beautiful living space!

  • WaterGuard System in East Haven, CT
    Before
    WaterGuard System in East Haven, CT
    After

    This East Haven homeowner had trouble with water entering his basement. The constant flooding would leave his basement very damp with a musty odor. He wanted to find a solution that would keep his basement dry so he would not have to deal with a flood every time it rained. He decided to give Connecticut Basement Systems a call, knowing that they are the experts in all things basementy. 

    On the day of the appointment, our System Design Specialist Rick Raucci, arrived at the home to give a free home evaluation. He concluded that the best solution would be to install a WaterGuard system, which will waterproof the basement. The homeowner agreed to the solution and with no time to waste, we sent Marcio Bahiense and his production team to begin the installation process.  

    In order to install a WaterGuard System, the perimeter of the basement floors need to be dug up. The WaterGuard is placed along the perimeter of the basement and is back filled with gravel. This allows water to flow through the WaterGuard System and the gravel instead of entering the basement. Lastly, the perimeter of the basement is paved over with cement to close up the system, as seen in the after photo.

    The homeowner decided to get a SuperSump pump, which pairs perfectly with the WaterGuard System. The SuperSump Pump is where the water channeled by the WaterGuard System is poured into. The SuperSump pump takes that water and drives it away from the home through a discharge line, keeping the basement dry all year around.

    Now, this East Haven homeowner enjoys a dry basement and a peace of mind during every rain fall.

Marcio Bahienese and his production team did an excellent job installing the products.

By installing the drain at this point, it's kept out of the "mud zone", the point where clogged drains are common. The unique shape and large drain openings of WaterGuard also aid in prevent clogs in the system. With the WaterGuard installed, the owners have a dry, maintainence free garage!

    Rim Joist Insulation in Enfield, CT
    After

    Before we arrived at this Enfield crawlspace, there was no insulation preventing air and moisture from entering the space. The homeowners were unhappy with the comfort level of the home, experiencing drafts and moisture in the crawlspace. They wanted a solution to solve their insulation problem and decided to give Connecticut Basement Systems a call for a free estimate!

    The solution for this Enfield crawlspace was to add rim joist insulation. Marcio Bahiense and his production team installed the spray foam insulation to the rim joists professionally and efficiently. The benefit to having the rim joists insulated with spray foam is that it acts as an effective barrier, protecting against air leakage and moisture. It also has superior R-value (R-6.2 to be exact), meaning that your home will be better insulated compared to traditional batt insulation. Lastly, this product is waterproof and has the ability to completely cover any area. 

    The homeowners were overjoyed with the results of their newly insulated crawlspace. They noticed that their home was better insulated, especially the floors now that the crawlspace was running efficiently!

The TrenchDrain has a unique design, made out of heavy-duty reinforced plastic, so you will not have to worry about breakage, corrosion, moisture damage, or maintenance!
