    Sergio and Costa were very professional and explained everything to us. They were on time and finished the job when they said they would. We appreciated working with them to lift our basement floor back into position.

    This is a great example of an upgraded sump pump system! With an insufficient sump pump, water is more than likely to enter the basement and leave its presence with a musty odor and an unwelcoming environment. Wanting a solution for an upgraded sump pump system, the homeowner decided to call the experts at CT Basement Systems! 

    The solution for this basement was to install a Super Sump Pump system. This system has a Zoeller 1/3 horsepower sump pump that is able to pump out 3,900 gallons per hour! This is exactly what the homeowner needed and he now enjoys a dry basement even with the heavy rains!

    In this Norwalk home the homeowners had a continuing moisture issue in their crawlspace. The crawlspace was dirty and very humid when they would go down there. The homeowners called the experts at CT Basement Systems and we fixed the issue on the first visit. We installed our vapor barrier which not only keeps the moisture from coming through the walls and floor but it also keeps the crawl space clean. The homeowners also had us install our crawl space insulation which is a great way to seal off your walls, while also saving money on your energy bills!

    SilverGlo™ 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.

    This home in Ridgefield, CT needed a way to stabilize their basement beams. They seemed to be sagging, and they didn't want it to become even worse than it already was. They gave us a call at Connecticut Basement Systems, and we were happy to come out, and see the problem.

    Our System Design Specialist, Matt Kraus, came out and quickly realized what this home needed was Smartjack XT's! Victor and Sergio Alves came out, and quickly got to work on installing them.

    Brad Glazer came out to look at the space, and quickly deduced that this family needed SmartJack crawl space stabilizers to make their space safe again. Sergio Alves and his team came out, and quickly got to work! Each SmartJack post rests on a precast concrete pad that is set on a base of compacted stone. This engineered structural system won’t settle like masonry piers can; nor will it rot or shift like a wood post. These posts are guaranteed to get your sagging crawl space to where it needs to be!
