This Greenwich, CT home was suffering from a multitude of problems, including a flooding problem in their basement that was beginning to create mold on the home's walls. They called our experts at Connecticut Basement Systems/Total Basement Finishing to take care of the problem! First, we cut and removed the bottom of the walls, to remove any damage that mold may have caused, before beginning our waterproofing process. In order to guide the water out of the home, we first installed our Trench Drain system, so it would be captured upon entrance. To keep the water from seeping through the walls, we made sure to install our WaterGuard drainage channel, and our TripleSafe Sump Pump to make sure that this basement was completely water free! Finally, once the space was completely mold proof, we went ahead and installed Everlast Wall Panels, made from inorganic materials which do not support mold growth. These homeowners can now enjoy their space for years to come!

A Bridgeport Home had a non working sump pump in a hole with a plastic hose to suck up water when rain came in. But it did not work very well and the basement would fill up with moisture and smell very bad. These happy customers contacted us here at CT Basement Systems and we had one of wonderful sales reps come out and fix the problem. In the place of the non working sump pump we put in our TripleSafe Sump Pump which has three levels of protection.

A homeowner in Middletown owned his home for over 41 years and continued to have water problems just like all of his neighbors. His neighbors had contractors come in and "fix" the issue but they continued to have water issues. Once we came down and started working he was certain that he wouldn't have any problems. We installed our WaterGuard® System which our patented WaterGuard® System is the result of more than two decades of research and development by the world's largest network of waterproofers -- and is backed by a lifetime transferable written warranty! This system has been successfully used in hundreds of thousands of basements in more than three continents, and is a proven way to permanently dry your basement.
The water flowing through the WaterGuard® System stops in our TripleSafe™ Sump Pump. TripleSafe™ isn't just a sump pump. It's a sump pump system. TripleSafe™'s oversize plastic sump liner contains 3 sump pumps that can work together or separately depending on pumping demands. With the TripleSafe™ system, you don't have to worry about high pumping demands that can overwhelm or burn out single-pump systems. And if there's a power outage, your TripleSafe™ system will keep operating, thanks to a battery-powered backup pump.

The Smith family was having constantly occurring issues with water coming in and damaging their basement. The water was coming in where the wall and the ground come in and they could not figure out how to make the water stop coming in, so they contacted the experts at CT Basement Systems and Len Fletcher made all their worries go away. Len advised them our Drytrack Drainage system.The reason behind installing this instead of our french drain system is because every floor is different from the other and some are monolithic floors which means that the edges of these floors are extremely thick, and jackhammering them is a labor-intensive and creates a lot of dust.

The new walls and flooring are able to give this space the protection and clean look the homeowners were looking for to enjoy its full potential with family and guests.
A homeowner had contacted us regarding a need for waterproofing services in his basement. Without a basement with proper waterproofing, many issues can occur including water damage to the floor and walls, flooding, and the growth of mold. Oftentimes a damp basement causes a musty odor as well as the potential growth of asbestos and other molds which then can become a health issue within one’s own home. Once we heard that assistance was needed, we sent out our expert, Sean Colson, to assess the basement.
While we have many solutions that are used to completely waterproof basements, one that was crucial in the process of waterproofing the homeowner’s basement was the installation of an UltraSump III. This is a sump pump that was installed to remove water that had accumulated in a sump basin under the homeowner's basement floor and to make sure water levels never got too high so now leaks could occur. Following the sump pump, our crew then implemented a whole new basement flooring. They put down over 1,400 tiles of ThermalDry Floor Matting which created a whole new and improved basement floor. The ThermalDry matts are interlocking waterproof tiles that create a warmer surface while also forming a water barrier above the basement floor. Without this flooring, any water vapors that pass beneath the concrete floor would be absorbed by any carpeting or padding which would cause unwanted odors.
The final step our experts took in fully waterproofing the homeowner’s basement was adding a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier. By adding this, damp and musty odors will be eliminated by drying and filtering the air. In addition to filtering air, this machine will also filter mold spores, dust mite droppings, dust and other unwanted particles. With automatic drainage and humidity settings, the homeowner will not have to worry about tending to his new humidifier. In addition to waterproofing, the basement was also in need of a repaired crawlspace, which was easily fixed by the addition of drainage matting and wall caps. The matting is put over concrete to allow for proper draining of the crawlspace while wall caps are put over concrete walls to disallow moisture going from the concrete into the crawlspace. With the addition of all these solutions, this homeowner will not have to continue to worry about water issues in his basement or crawlspace.
The Toll Brothers Company in Danbury, CT was experiencing a wet basement. Luckily, the owner knew of our waterproofing Specialist, Rick Raucci and contacted him for a free no obligation estimate. He arrived at the property to assess the problem and determine what would be the best solution to waterproof their basement. He decided that it would be best to install our WaterGuard drainage piping system along with the WaterGuard Port.
With a prepared plan Jose Blees and his production team got to work. They installed the WaterGuard system which is installed inside the perimeter of the basement to prevent wall and floor seepage before it reaches the basement floor. They also installed the WaterGuard Port which supports the WaterGuard system and is easy to use for inspection.
The Toll Brothers were satisfied with the work completed and with now their dry basement. They were so pleased that they continue to use CT Basement Systems for various other jobs.
These Fairfield, CT homeowners noticed their basement was damp and humid so they gave Connecticut Basement Systems a call to waterproof their basement.
Our sales rep Gus Stozinic went to the home in Fairfield to determine a solution for their basement. He determined that the Sanidry Sedona would be useful to lower their humidity. Antonio Diaz and his production team got to work and installed the Sanidry Sedona and Sanidry Condition Pump. The Sanidry Sedona keeps your home below 55% Relative Humidity so mold, musty odors, and humidity even from a lot of dampness will not survive. They also installed Rim Joist Insulation in their crawlspace which further protects against humidity since it's isolated from the ground and outside.
After this job was completed Gus went back out for a revisit and they decided to do more work by adding the ThermalDry Elite Plank Flooring to their basement. Jose Blees and his team added in the Light Pecan colored Elite Plank Flooring. This special flooring is made from inorganic material so it is prone to water or mold damage, works along with our waterproofing systems, and provides a sleek style.
One the job was completed they were happy with their dry and upgraded basement.
A homeowner located in Monroe, Connecticut had been having troubles with water in his basement. The homeowner was becoming tired of the issue, and in order to stop excess water from coming in, musty odors from developing, and damp air from flowing throughout his whole house, he decided it was best to give Connecticut Basement Systems a call. Once a call was made, we quickly made him an appointment for a expert to come to his house to give a free estimate on how to stop his water problems.
It was decided that the home's current Sump Pump was clearly not very efficient and could not always keep up with the amount of water coming through the ground. Our expert suggested our TripleSafe Sump Pump to the homeowner, and once he heard about all the benefits and efficiencies of this device, it was a quick agreement to have it installed into this Monroe basement. The old sump pump was removed to make room for our TripleSafe Sump Pump, and just like that, this basement was infiinetely more efficient with dealing with any ground water trying to get into the basement.
