    Customer Testimonial

              Dear Larry, On August 5th Josh Gomer and Raymundo Munguia come to my home to install Clean Space. I want to commend Josh and Raymundo. These two young men worked diligently and so quietly. Before they left they swept the basement floor and left it clean and clear of all debris. I left you a telephone mesage on August 5th, but wanted to write this letter which i hope you will share with them. Thank you again, Diana

    Customer Testimonial

              February 7, 2019 Mr. Larry Janesky, Owner Connecticut Basement Systems 33 Progress Avenue Seymour, CT 06483 Re: Connecticut Basement Systems (CBS) Hegermiller Installations – 4 Oakledge Circle and 18 Scribner Ave, Norwalk, CT 06854 Dear Mr. Janesky, I am writing to compliment you and your team. From my initial inquiry to CBS to the completion of the second installation today, your people were a complete pleasure with whom to work. Your salesperson, Vin Orsini overcame my significant objections to hiring CBS, starting with the adequacy of the design and ending with your price for the work (which was significantly higher than the competition). What convinced me to work with CBS was Vin’s thorough knowledge not only of your product, but of construction and of the specific challenges of the job. He far surpassed his peers from Vulcan and BudgetDry who gave cursory, inaccurate or incomplete answers to my questions. Over multiple conversations, Vin spent the time necessary to fully understand the project and to thoroughly explain the solution he recommended. He also was available to me through the prolonged scheduling process and through the job completion. He returned calls, text and emails promptly. Your production coordinator, Jennifer Raccio, was a joy. I had asked for an earlier job date than was called out in the contract. She called and offered me several dates and ultimately the job was completed before the specified contract date. She was unfailingly cheerful and accommodating. Finally, your construction crew – both times headed by Josh – was fantastic. (They did my daughter’s house at 18 Scribner first, after which I requested them for the job at my house. I am so glad that I did.) The crew called ahead to confirm their arrival time, arrived when scheduled, worked diligently while on the job, and did a splendid job overall at both locations. Their work was neat and professional. Their truck was well organized and clearly reflected their work ethic. They finished ahead of schedule and left both the basement and their path to the basement cleaner than they found it. Afterward, Josh fully briefed me on the operation of the system and recommended that I call CBS for annual maintenance. It is not often you encounter such courtesy and professionalism these days and my experience is that the corporate culture has a great deal to do with how your employees relate to the world. My congratulations to you for the business you have created and the people you have chosen for your team. At this point, my hope is that your system performs as well as your people. I hope to be able to write you again after a few heavy rains and report that all is well. Very truly yours, Don Hegermille

              I am extremely satisfied. The gentlemen that did the service were professional and efficient. The installation crew was easy to work with and talk to, and did the job properly. The office staff were very patient with an awkward situation with my neighbor. The cleanup was excellent, I hardly knew they were there.

    Customer Testimonial

              To Whom It May Concern: After procrastinating for several years, I made the call to Connecticut Basement Systems. They took all my information and set up an appointment for someone to come assess my situation and give an estimate. An information package arrived along with the sales representative’s profile and credential sheet. The day of the appointment, I received a call a half an hour prior to Don Godbout’s arrival. He arrived with a couple brief cases of product and materials. I explained what was going on and wanted to accomplish with the basement. We went downstairs and took a look. After assessing the situation, Don gave his presentation. He had several products to offer: windows, dehumidifiers, insulation, etc. I told him exactly what I wanted and he concentrated on just that – the de-watering system. He was not a pushy sales person as most are. Don then went downstairs, took some measurements and photos for estimate. While going through this process, I was able to ask many questions and got detailed answers. If Don did not know he made a phone call and got my answers. We went back upstairs and Don worked through the numbers and gave a price. After some thought, I agreed. Don worked up all the paperwork, set a date for installation … deal done! After he left that Saturday, I had some other questions. So, I called him Sunday AM. I caught him going into church with his family. Don was very courteous and took my call. The installation crew also gave a half an hour heads up prior to arrival. The foreman introduced himself and they immediately went to work. I figured at least a couple days work but – entire project was completed right down to clean up in 1 day!! All said and done, I am happy with the project. Wish I had called sooner. Everyone I worked with was informative and professional. Don and Connecticut Basement Systems did what they said they would. I would do business again. Sincerely yours, Lorraine Bonomi

  • SprayFoam in Brewster, NY
    Before
    SprayFoam in Brewster, NY
    After

    This Brewster basement had traditional fiber glass insulation that was poorly installed and was not controlling the heat and cool air throughout the home properly. This caused the home to have uneven temperatures and a high electric bill. They wanted a solution to make sure air leakage is totally prevented. They decided to give Connecticut Basement Systems a call to help find them a solution.

    The experts at Connecticut Basement Systems installed Spray Foam on the ceiling of the basement. Spray Foam was the best option for this home because it effectively fills voids and odd-shaped spaces, meaning that you will always get total coverage. This product will stop air leakage, making it effective at saving the home owners money through their eclectic bill. Lastly, Spray Foam will not absorb moisture or lose R-value like fiberglass. 

    Now that their basement ceiling is completely Spray Foamed, these happy homeowners enjoy consistent temperatures throughout the home and a lower electric bill!

    When we arrived at this crawlspace, it was damp and humid. In order to dry it out, we used several of our crawlspace repair products, including the TripleSafe sump pump. Our most reliable sump pump system, the TripleSafe provides three levels of protection for the basement and homeowner's peace of mind. It includes airtight lid, primary pump, secondary pump, and battery backup sump pump, in case of a power outage. The crawlspace will remain dry for years to come with the TripleSafe installed!

  • SuperSump Pump in Fairfield, CT
    Before
    SuperSump Pump in Fairfield, CT
    After

    This Fairfield basement had frequent water that was causing a nuisance for the homeowner. An insufficient sump pump seemed to be the cause of this water problem. An insufficient sump pump will prevent water exiting the basement properly. The homeowner decided to call Connecticut Basement Systems and set an appointment to help find him a solution. 

    The solution to this sump pump problem was to install a SuperSump pump. The SuperSump pump includes a Zoeller 1/3 horsepower cast-iron sump pump. This powerful pump is capable of pumping 2,220 gallons of water per hour! The water is collected from the WaterGuard system which was also installed and goes through the SuperSump pump and through the discharge line, away from the basement.

    Now, this homeowner enjoys a dry, clean basement all year long! 

  • SuperSump in Monroe, CT
    Before
    SuperSump in Monroe, CT
    After

    This Monroe, CT basement was experiencing a wet crawl space that was negatively affecting the entire home. The homeowner wanted a long-term solution and decided to contact the experts at Connecticut Basement Systems.

    The solution was to replace the inefficient sump pump and replace it with our patented SuperSump  pump. This sump pump will collect the water that would otherwise enter the basement and discharge it away from the home. This product is essential for a waterproofed basement and the homeowner can now enjoy his dry space.

  • Waterproofing in Sandy Hook CT
    Before
    Waterproofing in Sandy Hook CT
    After

    This Sandy Hook home had water seeping in through the cements walls underneath the insulation and made its way into the drywall damaging it. The homeowners called the experts at CT Basement Systems and Brad  diagnosed the issue and fixed it. To guide the water out of the home we installed our WaterGuard below floor drain. The WaterGuard is installed in a bed of gravel on top of the foundation footing which keeps it out of the "mud zone". The water is then collected and pumped out of the home by our premier SuperSump which is capable of pumping 2,200 gallons of water per hour. Because the previous insulation was damaged we installed our ThermalDry Basement Radiant Wall Barrier. The ThermalDry® Wall system protects the finished basement from moisture and water that passes through concrete foundation walls. This product serves as both a vapor barrier and also as a way to redirect water leaking through the basement walls into the drainage system below.

  • CleanSpace in East Haven, CT
    Before
    CleanSpace in East Haven, CT
    After

    Before we arrived at this East Haven basement, it was cold and damp. The cracks in the wall made it easy for air flow and humidity to travel through. The homeowner wanted a solution to stop the air flow and humidity in her basement. She decided to give Connecticut Basement Systems a call to provide a solution! 

    With an appointment set, one of our System Design Specialists, Josh Kroop, was able to perform a free home evaluation. He concluded, to stop the air flow and humidity, a CleanSpace Wall would need to be installed. With the homeowner’s agreement, Cisco and Josh were able to install the system quickly and professionally. 

    Clean. Dry. Durable. Those are 3 words that accurately describe CleanSpace. It utilizes a thick (20 mil) white poly sheet material to completely cover basement foundation walls. This prevents humidity and air flow to travel through the basement, which solves the homeowner’s main concern. This patented product actually forces all wall seepage to go through the perimeter drain system. This homeowner decided to have a SuperSump paired with the CleanSpace wall for ultimate protection.  

    Now, this happy East Haven homeowner can enjoy her dry, clean basement!

    After

    Before we arrived at this Southington home, the floors were damp and the homeowner was unhappy with his wet basement. He wanted a solution to solve all his basement needs so he decided to give the experts at Connecticut Basement Systems a call!

    On the day of the appointment, Don Godbout arrived at the home to give a home evaluation. He determined that in order to keep this basement dry all year long, a WaterGuard System would need to be installed. With the homeowner’s approval, there was no time to waste and Josh and his production crew got to work! 

    They installed the WaterGuard System along with a SuperSump pump which will allow water to channel through the system and out the SuperSump pump. TrenchDrains were also installed to ensure that water does not flood from an outer entryway, in this particular home it was the under the doorway. The after photo shows the TrenchDrain installed under the doorway.  

    With both of these products installed, this happy Southington homeowner can now enjoy a dry basement all year long thanks to Connecticut Basement Systems!

  • CleanSpace in Coventry, CT
    Before
    CleanSpace in Coventry, CT
    After

    This crawl space in Coventry, CT was dirty, cold and had a lot of moisture which was a concern to the homeowner. Wanting a solution for his crawl space, he called the experts at Connecticut Basement Systems and scheduled an appointment.

    Our Sales Representative, Steve Godbout, arrived at the home on the day of the appointment and concluded that a CleanSpace Liner would be the perfect solution for this crawl space. A CleanSpace Liner prevents air and moisture from entering the crawl space. The benefit of air and moisture not entering the crawl space is that the floors in the home directly above will be noticeably warmer. The homeowner approved of this proposal and could not wait for his clean, dry crawl space.

    On the day of production, Cisco and Josh installed the CleanSpace Liner efficiently and professionally. Not only does this liner protect against mold and moisture, but it also gives the crawl space a clean finish. This solution satisfied all of the homeowner’s needs and could not be happier thanks to Connecticut Basement Systems! 

  • Basement Waterproofing in Pawcatuck CT
    Before
    Basement Waterproofing in Pawcatuck CT
    After

    In this Pawcatuck house, heavy rains always resulted in water in the basement much to the homeowners' dismay. At first, the homeowners bought two off-the-shelf sump pumps but when that didn't solve the problem effectively, they decided to call the experts at CT Basement Systems. We installed our WaterGuard French Drain System, which collects leaking water from the walls, features an anti-clog design, is installed out of the "mud zone" and includes a written lifetime warranty.

    Once any leaking or seeping water is collected by the drainage system, it now automatically drains into the TripleSafe Sump Pump System, our premier sump pump solution. The TripleSafe, like the name implies, has three pumps. The first pump does the initial pumping when there is any water in the basement; if there is too much water for the first pump to handle, then the second pump kicks in. If the power goes out (it does happen!), the battery-powered third pump turns on and is able to pump enough water to fill half a swimming pool!

    The homeowners can rest assured that they will no longer have water problems in their basement!
