Before, this basement window was clearly inefficient with cracks along the edges to allow air and moisture. The homeowners had even tried to cover the air leaks with a flimsy piece of cardboard as a last resort. They knew that an upgrade to their windows were a must. Connecticut Basement Systems was able to provide a permanent solution for their Milford home.
The solution was to install EverLast windows. These windows are built with reinforced vinyl frames so there is never a worry for rust or rot. This was a problem in the previous windows that is no longer an issue. EverLast windows have double-pane glass that will prevent heat loss, making your home more energy efficient. Not only are these windows practical, but they are a beautiful addition and let in a lot of natural light! This is exactly what the homeowner had wanted and was pleased with the results!
When a basement window has an insufficient window well, it can cause a lot of obstruction with dirt and debris. This obstruction can deter light from entering the basement and it is unappealing to look at from the outside. The homeowner wanted to install a window well that would protect their brand new windows. Connecticut Basement Systems was more than happy to provide a solution.
The solution was to install a Sun House window well. Our Sun House window well is superior compared to others because it is made from a durable, high-strength plastic that will never rust, deteriorate or require painting. The solid base keeps the well clean and prevents weeds from growing on the window well floor. This is exactly what the homeowner wanted and the difference is incredible!
This Milford basement had mold on the walls caused by excessive moisture in the area. This is unhealthy and concerned the homeowner greatly. He wanted a permanent solution to ensure that his basement would be dry and healthy no matter how much it rained. After doing his research, he decided to work with the experts at Connecticut Basement Systems.
The solution for this basement was to first address the mold problem. Mold X2 was the solution for the current mold. This product is applied to the contaminated surface and removes the mold. However, in order to truly prevent mold from growing back, the basement must stay dry. The solution for this was to install a SaniDry Sedona and BrightWall panels. The SaniDry Sedona is a dehumidifier that will keep the basement humidity below 55% which will make the air healthier and prevent mold. BrightWall panels were installed to prevent air and moisture from seeping through the walls. Not only is this product practical, but it gives the basement a fresh, clean look. Just look at the difference! The homeowner was pleased with her dry and clean basement.

Martha H of Guilford, CT noticed her finished basement had wet spots in the carpeting. She realized that the wet finishing materials in her basement caused a potential mold problem and new she would have to do something about the situation before it got worse. After searching the web she found Larry Janesky's Connecticut Basement Systems and decided to have them come in for a free estimate to solve the water problem.
Shortly after giving them a call, an appointment was set for Mike Fuschetto to come evaluate the basement. Mike decided that having Al Guglielmoni install a WaterGuard drainage system and a TripleSafe Sump Pump system would be the best bet to get rid of any water. WaterGuard is a drainage channel that will lead any water coming into the basement to the TripleSafe pump system, where it will be then pumped out of the home a safe distance away.
Michael also proposed the SaniDry Basement Air system for Martha's basement. The SaniDry can dehumidify and filter the air at the same time. It's ENERGY STAR® rating makes it three times more efficient than common hardware store dehumidifiers.
Martha has been very happy and having no issues with water coming into her basement. It's now a dry, moisture free space that is safe to refinish and enjoy for years to come.

Robert reached out to Connecticut Basement Systems, and with Basement Finishing specialist Ronald Marra, devised a plan to transform his unfinished basement.
Soon after, foreman Erik Dobrzycki and his crew arrived in Rob’s home. They installed an Everlast perimeter wall system, which is fully washable and is 197% stronger than drywall.

This Middlebury home is an existing customer who has our WaterGuard System, SuperSump and SaniDry Dehumidifier. She called in to schedule her yearly maintenance appointment for the SuperSump pump and Dehumidifier.
On the day of the service appointment, Service Technician Justin Jaffer arrived at the home on time and greeted the homeowner. He then explained the procedure of what a maintenance included and asked if there were any questions or concerns about the systems. With no concerns, Justin went into the basement to evaluate the systems.
This was a simple maintenance routine. The SuperSump was pretty much clean with very little build up. Justin checked all the breathing holes of the sump pump and they were clear of any debris. So, with a scrub of the basin and a check of the battery, the system looked great. He checked the flow of water and then moved on to the SaniDry dehumidifier. With the dehumidifier, Justin opened up the system and replaced the filter. He also cleaned out any dirt or dust that was inside the system. Then he checked to see if the humidity was still at the recommended temperature of 55 degrees or below and it was. With both systems in pristine condition, Justin cleaned up and went to follow up with the homeowner. Justin gave a full report of what was done during this maintenance and reassured the systems were working perfectly.
It is important to schedule these annual maintenances for your sump pumps and dehumidifier. Just like this homeowner, having a successful maintenance every year is better and less expensive than skipping out on annual maintenances and having to replace parts or worse…have a flooded basement. So, make sure that does not happen to you and call to schedule your annual maintenance! 1-855-200-7133
This Waterbury basement had a maintenance for their TripleSafe safe pump that was a year past due. It is important to have your sump pump maintenance every year! The homeowner decided to schedule a maintenance this year and we were happy to come out.
On the day of the maintenance, Service Technician Justin Jaffer arrived at the home. After talking to the homeowner, he went to go inspect the sump pump. The first concern he noticed was that there was no power to the system and realized quickly that a breaker was tripped. Upon more evaluation, Justin realized that the primary pump was destroyed due to the iron build up that happened in the system. Since there was no power to the system, the secondary pump was discharging the water to keep the basement dry. (That is a great benefit of this system!) In addition to all of this, the battery was dead to the system. Justin had to replace the primary pump and the battery and had to scrub the rest of the system to get rid of the iron. After scrubbing and parts replaced, the system was running efficiently and the homeowner was happy. With so much iron build-up, Justin highly recommended to get a service maintenance every 6 months and to be consistent with the service!
Need to schedule your maintenance? Give us a call at 1-855-200-7133 and we will be happy to schedule a service!

Before there was a single sump with a generic liner that had a lid with a slot cut in it. To fix that we installed our TripleSafe sump pump system which is engineered with three levels of protection. The first level starts with the most reliable cast iron AC sump pump. There are also is two separate discharge lines so if one pump can’t handle the volume of water, then they can work to pump together. If you were to lose power, a third pump automatically starts. These pumps are fit in a custom engineered liner that has an airtight lid bolted down. Some features of our TripleSafe sump pump include: its patented CleanPump stand, which keeps the pumps out of silt and sediment that would wash into the liner. The lid of the TripleSage has a built-in FloorDrain to capture any plumbing leaks. Lastly, it has a WaterWatch alarm, that goes off like a smoke detector in the highly unlikely event of water passing all sump operating ranges.
As for the discharge line, the previous line was on their yard. This causes the water to go nowhere but back into the house whenever it was to freeze in the winter. We installed our underground discharge line along with our patented IceGuard, which allows water to escape and not backup. Our products and exceptional workmanship are guaranteed to leave our clients happy and secure household fixes.
Now with our permanent solution, the homeowner has a dry basement all year long.
