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.
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 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.
At this home in Wilton, CT we had an unfinished basement that was unorganized, cluttered and in need of a serious update! Using our Total Basement Finishing systems, this basement is now is beautiful, well lit, and being used to it's full potential with an in home gym!
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 ThermalDry 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!
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.
Before, this Trumbull, CT homeowner’s basement was susceptible to problematic leaks and other water damage caused by this water heater. Water heaters automatically refill themselves, so when a water heater leaks, it leaks nonstop. Since the average water heater can last as little as 7 years, our experienced waterproofing Foreman, Marcio Bahiense, advised the homeowner to protect their home against a potentially disastrous flood.
After speaking with the homeowner, Marcio determined that the best solution for this home was to install Connecticut Basement Systems’ patented TrenchDrain drainage system. The grated openings on TrenchDrain allow the system to collect all flood water without taking up space or causing a tripping hazard in the basement. Once water flows into the drain, it is redirected to a sump pump to be completely removed from the basement. TrenchDrain also has a removable lid for easy cleaning and service, and even includes a written lifetime warranty.
Marcio quickly installed TrenchDrain, and the homeowner was very pleased with the results. She knew that her new drainage system would protect her basement and the value of her home for years to come, which gave her peace of mind.
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. Working together, these features keep this basement more comfortable and eliminate contact with cold, clammy concrete walls. 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!
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.

Water used to seep through the wall-floor joint of this Avon, CT garage every time it rained. To fix this, we installed out WaterGuard perimeter drain. The WaterGuard System is an award-winning, patented below-floor drain that rests in a bed of drainage stone on top of the foundation footing. 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!

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!

When we arrived in this home, we found that water was leaking inside through the garage door. When we encounter this kind of situation, we usually recommend our TrenchDrain drainage pipe system. It is uniquely designed to span doorways, garage entrances, and similar entryway doors. TrenchDrain resembles half of a basement drainage pipe, with a grated opening fitted snugly on top. In this home, we installed this grated drain flush with the floor, eliminating any tripping hazard. Any water that will pass over the drain is collected through the openings and redirected to the sump pump. The owners of this house can rest easy knowing that their garage is protected against leaks!
This Tolland basement had frequent water issues and was becoming a nuisance for the homeowner. A reoccurring problem was water piling up by the stairs. The homeowner wanted to fix the problem and decided to schedule an appointment with Connecticut Basement Systems.

The TrenchDrain, as seen in the before and after photos, will allow water to properly drain in problematic areas and bring it to the WaterGuard System. 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!
