Miguel's front walkway was lifting and settling, creating an uneven surface that was dangerous for people to walk on. He immediately reached out to Connecticut Basement Systems. They offered Miguel a permanent solution to his sinking concrete slab problems, known as PolyLEVEL.
Miguel agreed to have his walkway lifted and leveled out with this efficient new method of concrete repair. PolyLEVEL is a two-part injection foam that is pumped beneath a concrete slab to fill the void between the soil and slab. This process firmly stabilizes the concrete and returns it back to its original condition.
A family in Wethersfield had previously had water damage in their basement.

They are now able to put something as heavy as a flat screen TV without having to worry about damaging the wall.

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.
Our System: Collects Water From Walls & Floor Joint, Above The Mud Zone To Prevent Clogging, Ideal For Monolithic Or Thick Floors, Includes A Written Lifetime Warranty
The B family had continuous water coming in and pooling in their basement. The homeowners called the experts at Connecticut Basement Systems for their waterproofing needs. Once at the home we were able to gather that the home desperately needed to be waterproofed. We installed our TripleSafe sump pump since the home didn't have a current sump pump. The benefit of our premier sump pump is the three pumps inside of it. The first pump sits the lowest and is the first one to turn on if water comes in. The second pump will turn on if the first pump is unable to handle the amount of water coming in, and both of the pumps will work at the same time. If the power goes out then the third pump which is battery powered will turn on and will be able to pump water totaling half of a swimming pool! The homeowners no longer had any water problems in their basement.

This Windsor, CT basement had insufficient windows that were causing drafts in the basement which would ultimately affect the entire home.

The rim joist insulation will also be beneficial to the entire home, keeping the air you pay for in the home. This was exactly what the homeowners wanted and scheduled for a production date.

These Berlin homeowners had a crack in their basement wall that would allow a lot of air and moisture to travel through. Thus, making the basement a wet and unappealing area of the home. Already working with Connecticut Basement Systems having a finished basement, they decided to work again.
The solution for this problem was to install our FlexiSpan product. FlexiSpan will prevent leakage through the crack thanks to its 3 step process. The first step is to apply a flexible sealant along the full length of the crack. Next, a strip of porous foam is installed over the crack. Lastly, an impermeable membrane is attached to the wall on both sides of the foam strip. This will direct any water leakage to the waterproofing system. This is exactly what the homeowners wanted and were happy that they chose to work with us again!
This Glastonbury, CT home had a crack in the basement wall. This concerned the homeowners because the crack was leaking air and moisture into the area. They wanted to fix the problem the correct way, so they trusted the experts at Connecticut Basement Systems to correctly seal the crack in the basement.
On the day of the sales appointment, Sales Representative Chad Achenbach arrived at the home to assess the wall crack. He concluded that our FlexiSpan Wall System would be the perfect solution. After explaining the benefits of the product and how it will be a permanent solution, the homeowner wanted to move forward with the project.
Foreman Justin Vizard is the one who installed the FlexiSpan system. It is installed in 3 steps. The first step is to apply a flexible sealant along the length of the crack. Next, a strip of flexible and porous foam is attached over the crack. Lastly, an impermeable membrane is attached to both sides of the foam strip. This will allow any seepage to move down the wall into the basement’s drainage system. This system is better than the “quick fixes” of patching mortar or applying masonry sealant because any slight movement along the crack can break the seal. This is not a concern when the FlexiSpan system is used. The homeowner was glad he went with the permenant solution as he does not need to worry about the wall crack leaking air or moisture.
