Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Waterproofing Basement in Orange, CT

Tuesday, July 18th, 2017 by Danielle Lariviere


This homeowner in Orange, CT had a basement that was suffering from some pretty nasty water damage. The paint was chipping and peeling away, and mold was infesting the cement walls and floors. The space was being wasted because the family wasn't able to use it to their advantage. By not utilizing their whole basement, this homeowner was essentially wasting half of their footage. They were ready for a change and gave us a call to have these problems fixed! 


First, our waterproofing professional Rick Raucci came into the family's home, and advised them on how to tackle their water and mold problems. Then, it was time to get the ball rolling!

For the water seeping into the home through the walls, we installed our WaterGuard Below Floor Drain. This is our most widely used drain system. The water is channeled to the sump basin and out of your house through the drainage system. The WaterGuard is a popular drain system because of how effective and reliable it is. It is a minimally invasive installation and comes with a written lifetime warranty.

Next, we installed our TripleSafe Sump Pump. An industry leading sump pump, exclusive to Basement System dealers, this model has power, reliability, and resistance to clogging! It works relentlessly, and gives customer a peace of mind knowing it keeps their home dry.

For the door leading out of the basement, we installed our TrenchDrain Grated Drainage Pipe. This will prevent ground and rain water from entering your basement, and damaging your property. Now that their space has been waterproofed, this family has the relief of knowing they can do what they want with their space, without the risk of water.

We have been helping homeowners keep their homes dry for 29 years. We pride ourselves in quality work, trustworthy workers and reliable products. Give us a call today to schedule a free estimate with one of our waterproofing experts.
