Rich saw the need and interest in basement waterproofing after experiencing a problem within his own home with mold, seepage, and flooding issues. He saw many other issues that he could really help other people overcome and relate with them on that.
Rich enjoys meeting with homeowners and helping them solve their basement water problems, enabling them to get more out of their home. He also enjoys anything related to the ocean like surfing and boating as well as skiing and hanging out with his wife and two children.
Partial system on one wall needed to cut sheetrock and studs then install a SuperSump and waterguard with CleanSpace wall tucked in to fully encapsulate.
Homeowner had an old style pump that was working and we replaced it with our SuperSump and new discharge line.
This is our premier sump pump system called the TripleSafe. It has a battery backup system in it to keep your basement dry even if the power goes out. It is installed a little higher because the homeowner has an extreme high water table and needed to keep the pumps higher so they would not go off as much.
A homeowner in Jericho, NY contacted us because she had an ongoing problem with water in her basement. We diagnosed that the water was seeping through the walls of her basement. We recommended our WaterGuard® water collection system along with our TripleSafe™ sump pump and SaniDry™ dehumidifier. This combination resulted in a dry, comfortable space where it was once damp and dank.
A SmartJack was installed in place of a wood pole that had been shimmied underneath a floor beam. The wood pole was not holding up the floors properly so the homeowner called Healthy to get help. The SmartJack will do a much better job at supporting their above floors.
Here are before and after pictures of a crawlspace in Babylon that had water vapor issues. The crew did a great job sealing the entire crawlspace up after they cleaned out all the debris.
This homeowner's crawl space was cold and needed some insulation. We installed drainage matting first to allow water to pass underneath the CleanSpace vapor barrier that would be used to completely encapsulate the space.
The before picture depicts a dirty crawl space with high humidity. We installed a vapor barrier, insulation and a SaniDry CX Dehumidifier to correct the humid environment and protect the upper levels of the home.
This homeowner was experiencing first floor rooms that had a "musty" smell in them. Upon inspection from our System Design Specialist, we discovered it was coming from the crawl space. We solved the problem by completing encapsulating the crawl space with CleanSpace vapor barrier which prevents humidity and smells from finding their way into the main living space. We also added insulation to help make the rooms above the space more comfortable.
We gave this homeowner's basement a semi finished look using our ZenWall wall system. ZenWall can give a basement a great makeover that is more ascetically pleasing.

This customer wanted to clean and insulate their crawl space, Our team at Healthy Basements was able to satisfy this customers need by cleaning the crawl space and than installing our cleanspace vapor barrier.
The customer called Healthy Basement Systems after several occasions of water flooding their basement. Water was coming in at the imperfect joint where the foundation wall met the floor. Rich Alexander did a thorough inspection of the basement, and came up with a waterproofing solution that would keep the water from flooding the basement.
Our expert install team first installed our patented WaterGuard piping system around the full perimeter of the basement. WaterGuard ensures that water never reaches the basement floors and never gets clogged. Next, we installed the SuperSump pump system do get the water out and away from the house. Lastly, we installed CleanSpace along the soundation walls to create a vapor barrier between the cold stone walls and the basement area, lowering humidity and adding protection.
The customer has not had any issues with water in their basement since installation, and they are happy to know that our work comes with a lifetime guarantee!

This crawlspace needed some serious attention! Our crew removed an old, inefficient vapor barrier and a lot of debris. They then installed our CleanSpace liner that will prevent any further moisture from making its way into the living room above.
We fully encapsulated this crawl space to create a barrier between the earth and the home. This will help keep the upstairs living area less humid and free of odors and moisture.

It eventually started to deteriorate. We installed the CleanSpace liner and sealed all areas. The customer is very happy!
Flood vents help water go through a space from one end to the other so as to not put pressure on the walls. This alleviates the pressure on foundation walls helping to prevent them from collapsing in.
This homeowner had a half dirt, half cement built crawl space. They were looking for a way to keep moisture from coming into their space. We achieved this by installing CleanSpace, a moisture barrier which will permanently prevent any moisture from coming into the home.
