In cold climates, winter winds will beat against your basement windows, rapidly pulling heat away from your home. The cold wind can lead to serious energy losses, especially if you have single-paned steel windows. By installing a basement window well with a clear plastic cover, you can hold back those cold winds, protecting your windows and saving you energy.

Job Stories From New Canaan, CT
Full Perimeter Waterproofing in New Canaan, CT

This homeowner in New Canaan unfortunately had water in their basement causing damage, so they called us at Connecticut Basement Systems to fix this problem for good. One of our Salesmen, Steven Godbout, went out to the home to assess the issues and propose a solution. Then it would soon be time for the installation process. 

One of our Foremen, Moises Chantes, and his crew would install this project. First, they installed our WaterGuard drainage system below the floor, around the entire perimeter of the basement. This will capture any water from the walls and below the floor. Next, they installed our TripleSafe sump pump to take the collected water then and pump it out of the home at a safe distance, through a proper discharge line. It will use a combination of 3 pumps; a primary, a secondary, and a battery backup that can pump 11,500 gallons of water out on a full charge. They also installed our SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier to eliminate moisture and mold growth, keeping the space healthy and dry. This basement will stay dry all the time with our full waterproofing system and products, giving this homeowner peace of mind! 

Waterproofing a Basement in New Canaan, CT

A homeowner in New Canaan, CT was getting water seepage in their basement. They called us at Connecitc Basement Systems to find a solution so we sent out one of our Sales Consultants, Steve Machnicz, to the home to assess the issues and provide them with a full waterproofing system. 

One of our Foremen, Garfield Sanderson, and his crew worked on this job. They installed our WaterGaurd drainage system around the entire perimeter of the basement, below the floor, to collect water coming in from the floors or walls. They then installed our TripleSafe sump pump to take the collected water and pump it out of the home at a safe distance. The TripleSafe uses three pumps; a primary, a secondary, and a battery backup that can pump 11,500 gallons of water on a full charge. This is great when there are power outages during storms. They also installed our CleanSpace vapor barrier on the walls to direct the water into the drains below. This customer is happy and worry-free knowing that their basement will stay dry! 

Basement Waterproofing in New Canaan, CT

A homeowner in New Canaan, CT was getting water in part of their finished basement. They made the right decision when they called us at Connecticut Basement Systems to have us solve this problem. After scheduling an appointment for a free estimate, it would soon be time for one of our Sales Consultants, Mike Bourdeau, to go out to the home to assess the issues and provide a solution. He informed the homeowner that they would need our waterproofing systems in their basement to ensure their basement would stay dry going into the future. 

The next step would be installation. One of our Foremen, Cisco Berrios, and his crew would work on this project. They installed a WaterGuard drain system that goes below the floor to collect any water that may come in through the walls or floors. Then they installed a TripleSafe sump pump so that the collected water gets drained into the sump pump. Then it will pump the water out of the home at a safe distance. A discharge line is installed so all the water will get pumped out to the same place in the yard. To ensure no moisture in the basement, our crew installed a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier. This will prevent excess moisture and mold growth. Now this basement is completely dry! 

Waterproofing in New Canaan, CT

 

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.

There is a vertical crack in the foundation that looks like it relates to a small crack up the exterior brick on the outside of the house.

Water In the basement
Project Location: New Canaan, CT
Hello, we have just purchased the condo at 129 Richmond Hill Rd in CT. Here are the inspection results: The crawlspace vent well is shallow and this may lead to water intrusion, as it appears to have in the past. Excavate the well to a depth of 12" below the vent sill, and add 4" of gravel to the base that should be pitched down - away from the house. Plastic covers are not recommended as they tend to conceal insect infestations and/or create a greenhouse effect leading to weed growth and wood rot. Proposed Solution: Recommend further consultation with a basement waterproofing professional to provide a scope and estimate to install a basement waterproofing system to include sub-slab perimeter piping, a submersible pump equipped with a battery backup system and pump or generator, permanent secured discharge line to grade, and full size sump pit with secured sump pit cover to avoid future damages.
