To be stable, strong and level, the floor above a crawl space requires solid mid-span support that's usually provided by a post-and-beam assembly. But beams are often undersized, and many contractors use wooden posts that can rot, shift and settle. When this happens, floor joists sag and other structural problems occur. The SmartJack system is a foundation repair product that provides a permanent solution to these problems.
In this basement we installed a TripleSafe Sump Pump; our most reliable Sump system, with 3 levels of protection. We also installed Waterguard to drain water to the sump pump. And to finish it off we install CleanSpace to give the walls a more attractive appearance.
Before, these basement walls let moisture seep through into the basement, causing damage to the floor and walls. More than just a nuisance, the water damage created a moist environment suitable for mold growth, which can threaten both the value of the home and the health of its owners. Knowing they had to act quickly, these homeowners reached out to Connecticut Basement Systems for a lasting solution.
Once we arrived, we waterproofed the basement by installing our patented WaterGuard System, which runs along the perimeter of the basement and directs any leaking water into a sump pump. After this, Foreman Chavon Bowman replaced the damaged portions of drywall with more durable EverLast Wall Panels, which are made from inorganic materials, will not be damaged by water and can even withstand flooding. Complete with a decorative molding, these new wall panels help to give the home an improved look while also eliminating any potential for mold growth. As a result, these homeowners were quite pleased with this improved, dry basement.

This Stamford home would frequently experience a wet basement every time it rained. The water was damaging their storage items and leaving a musty odor. The homeowner was frustrated and decided to find a solution with Connecticut Basement Systems.
On the day of the appointment, Sales Representative Steve Godbout arrived at the home to inspect the basement. He identified the problem and knew the perfect solution. He recommended a full perimeter drainage system (WaterGuard System) that would internally collect the excess water and channel it to a sump pump. From there, the water in the sump pump system will discharge the water away from the home. This will ensure to keep the basement waterproofed. The homeowner was impressed with the system and knew that this is exactly what his basement needed to keep dry.
On the day of production, Foreman Krzys Wilk and his team installed the WaterGuard system professionally and efficiently. They first had to excavate the perimeter of the floors to be able to have a place the system. Once the system is placed internally, it is back filled with gravel and then sealed up with cement. This homeowner decided to have a Super sump pump installed and CleanSpace liner, which will help prevent air and moisture from entering and this will help eliminate the musty odor. Once everything was installed, the basement was transformed and waterproofed! The homeowner was impressed and happy that he found a permanent solution.

Griffin H. is a loyal and longtime customer that first used Connecticut Basement Systems more than 20 years ago. When he purchased a second home this year, and found that his basement had a water problem, he knew exactly who to call.
The same week he spoke to Connecticut Basement Systems, Joe met with Griffin at his Stamford home. He recommended the Waterguard interior drainage system, along with a Trench Drain drainage channel, which would prevent the water from getting back into areas it doesn’t belong. When Marcio and his crew arrived at the house, they quickly and successfully installed the systems, along with an alarm to alert Griffin of any further issues. They further protected his property with the usage of a Lawnscape outlet in the backyard, which can be easily cleared by the homeowner.
A longtime customer like Griffin knows that when waterproofing a basement, a homeowner needs the expertise and permanent solutions that Connecticut Basement Systems provides to keep his home dry for many years to come!
After two major storms brought unwanted water into Al Y.’s basement, he was ready for a long term solution. Beyond just waterproofing, he was looking to turn the unfinished basement in his Stamford home into a usable space. He researched companies online and contacted Connecticut Basement Systems for an estimate.
Soon after, Mike arrived at his house and discussed his interest in transforming his basement into a family room. First though, Al needed to take care of the water issue once and for all. Sid Avis and his crew installed 60 feet of DryTrak, a SuperSump sump pump system, along with a WaterWatch alarm, and the IceGuard system as well. That way, water would stay out not only when it rained, but when it snowed as well.
With the basement now completely protected, Al is ready to begin the process to refinish his basement through Connecticut Basement Systems so that he can turn his formerly wet and unfinished basement into a room the entire family can enjoy.
When Tony M. found cracks in his basement walls, identifying that as the source of his water woes, he headed online to research companies that could help him. He came across Connecticut Basement Systems and sent an email explaining his issue. Waterproofing specialist Tarn Granucci visited him soon after and came up with a plan to keep the water out.
In just one day, Cisco and his crew used the FlexiSpan Foundation Wall Crack Repair System, and installed a TripleSafe sump pump. A few months later, Tony noticed another issue where water was coming up through the basement floor. He called Connecticut Basement Systems again, this time for a complete and permanent solution. A second sump pump, along with the WaterGuard interior drainage system and a LawnScape outlet in his yard, took care of the problem.
On top of waterproofing Tony’s basement, Connecticut Basement Systems also tested and sealed the entire area for radon. Tony’s basement is no longer a source of stress and is instead, a dry and safe space to be in.
