Our ThermalDry Wall system was installed in conjunction with a perimeter drainage system to keep this basement dry all of the time.
BrightWall Paneling provides a clean, bright, semi-finished look to your basement. It also doubles as an extremely durable vapor barrier, stopping water vapor from permeating your walls and draining any leaks down to a water management system. This homeowner was very happy with the finished job!
This homeowner wanted to use their basement for storage. They loved our ZenWall product and decided this was the best solution for their goal.
This home in Long Beach had water seeping through walls and floor joints in the basement. This area has a high water table so this homeowner needed WaterGuard to correct the seepage problem.
This home in East Rockaway had a wet basement due to water seepage through the foundation. We developed a three-part solution: our TripleSafe™ Sump Pump System along with our WaterGuard® drainage system, and our SaniDry™ XP Basement Air System. Together, these products resulted in a dry basement and a happy homeowner!
First, we removed the wood paneling and cleaned the space. We then installed WaterGuard and CleanSpace vapor barried. The WaterGuard is a trench train designed to help keep a basement dry. The CleanSpace will act as a moisture barrier and help direct any water seepage on the wall down into the WaterGuard.
The customer called us and inquired about our waterproofing systems. Their basement was getting water through the foundation walls and floors, and wanted a permanent solution to the problem. Eric Greenberg, one of our system design specialists, did a thorough inspection. He found signs of water damage along the walls and floors. He was able to create a system that would keep the basement dry all the time.
Our installation team first removed the mold from the area. Then we installed our patented WaterGuard piping system around the full perimeter of the basement. Next, we installed CleanSpace on the walls to create a vapor barrier between the cold foundation walls and the basement. We also installed the SuperSump pump system and ran a discharge line out and away from the house. The end result is a dry and healthier basement.
Water issues were solved in this basement by installing WaterGuard, a below floor drainage system.
Every space is fully utilized in a church, especially the basement! To ensure the health and safety of the congregation from mold, as well as preventing basement flooding, the church installed a brand new basement waterproofing system.
We installed a SuperSump pump with a battery operated back-up system, and installed WaterGuard trenches all around the basement perimeter, including an Ice Guard for winter, to ensure any water drains properly to the sump.
This church's basement will remain dry and comfortable for many years to come!
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.

Basement water problems are as old as the structures themselves. Water will leak into a basement through any opening it can, including your walls, floors, and the joints between them. Water can even pass through the concrete itself -- which is one reason why basements are notoriously damp, humid spaces.

This involves "painting" the basement walls and floors with a waterproof coating of cement that's meant to seal out the moisture.
It applies directly to the concrete's surface with a brush or roller and is often applied when a homeowner is preparing for basement finishing.
This involves digging out the entire perimeter of the basement, installing a new drain, and possibly adding a waterproof coating on the walls.
This type of installation has been used for many decades—a drain of this type is generally installed when the home is built.
Installs on top of the basement floor with a drain that runs along the basement walls. Collects water and sends it to a sump pump system.
No jackhammering is required, and the installation is safe for a monolithic basement floor.
Installs underneath the basement floor, with a drain that runs along the basement walls. Collects water and sends it to a sump pump system.
The system is easy to service, and it can collect water leaking from the walls or windows as well.
