    Sump Pump and SaniDry Installation in Southport, CT

    In this Southport, CT basement, there had been previous issues with the home's sump pump as well as there being a very outdated dehumidifier that was not performing nearly as well as other dehumidifers nowadays. Once the homeowner's realized these 2 problems, they decided to make a call to Connecticut Basement Systems with regards to having these two machines replaced.

    Once CBS received the call, we quickly were able to bring over our newest sump pump and SaniDry dehumidifier. All that needed to be done was the installation which our team was able to do in a very timely fashion. With these two issues fixed, the homeowners had a much more reliable system in their basement and they were very gratfeul for the quick and professional work we did for them.

    CleanSpace in Weston, CT

    When these Weston, CT homeowners noticed cold temperatures and excessive moisture in their crawl space, they decided to call Connecticut Basement Systems for a free inspection. 

    Damp crawl spaces often serve as a breeding ground for all kinds of pesky problems: including insects, mold, and foul odors. When left unaddressed, these hazards can quickly spread to the rest of your home. 

    Our representative, Don Goudbout, inspected the problem and  reccomended a series of waterproofing measures to eliminate moisture and prevent cold temperatures within the owner’s crawl space. Soon after, our team installed a CleanSpace vapor barrier to prevent any and all water from entering the area. We also replaced the basement's old, rotting window with one of our signature EverLast windows to ensure maximum insulation.

    Once we completed the job, this homeowner could enjoy a healthier, safer living space -- and keep her utility bills low, too!

    EverLast Wall Transformation in Fairfield, CT

    This Fairfield, CT basement had an open sewer line, which was unattractive and a hazard while people were downstairs. Due to water issues in this basement, the previous wall panels had also been damaged. The homeowners wanted to cover the sewer line and create a clean, usable space and they knew to trust this project with the experts! 

     

    Our great foreman Chavon and his crew were able to cover up the line by building a room with EverLast walls and a door to give the line easy access. The new EverLast walls also fixed the previously damaged walls and created a new clean, long-lasting look.

     

    The homeowners were ecstatic with how the room came out. They now have a long-lasting clean, safe space where their family can enjoy time together.

Exterior Excavation

Heavy equipment is brought in to dig out the entire perimeter of the basement. New drain lines are installed, and sometimes a waterproof coating is applied to foundation walls. This waterproofing strategy is expensive and often damages lawn and garden areas. Exterior drains are prone to clogging with silt and roots over time.

Interior Subfloor Drain

This drain line is installed underneath the basement floor, just inside the foundation walls. The hidden drainage system brings water to a sump pit, where a sump pump automatically pumps it outside. Also known as a French Drain, this system is not prone to clogging; it’s reliable and easy to service.

Interior Baseboard System

A hollow plastic baseboard is installed along the base of basement walls to form a drainage channel that directs water to a sump pump system. A baseboard-type drainage system is sometimes recommended when the basement slab is too thin to accommodate a French Drain.

Negative-side Sealant

This waterproofing technique involves "painting" basement walls and floors with a waterproof, cement-based coating that's supposed to seal out moisture. Even when applied correctly, this thin membrane usually fails in response to prolonged hydrostatic pressure from outside the foundation.
