This Wallingford home has a seepage problem in the block wall foundation. This is very common and since water comes in through the porous material.
This basement in Darien was flooded and left a white, powdery mold on the cinderblock wall called efflorescence.
This cinderblock wall was painted which is never a good idea in a below grade space. The moisture has caused the paint to crumble and chip off exposing the efflorescence and whatever else lies beneath in this Fairfield, CT home.
The cinder block walls of this East Hampton, CT home had a seepage problem, common in this porous material. This allowed water to enter the basement, staining the floor near the wall. We installed our patented TripleSafe Sump Pump System to pump water out of the basement. It has three sump pumps contained in one unit: a primary pump, a secondary in case the first cannot keep up with the amount of water, and a third battery powered sump pump in case of a power outage. The basement is now dry and will not suffer more water damage.
The cinder block foundation in this Westport, CT home has been damaged by water seeping into the basement.

The basement of this Greens Farms, CT home had a cinder block foundation. These walls often collect water in the cavities in the blocks. We dried out the area with our WaterGuard sub-floor perimeter drainage system. Our unique drains pull water out of the holes in the walls with small plastic flanges. They are also highly resistant to clogging, keeping the basement dry for many years to come!
