Basement Waterproofing in Agawam, MA
The crew went out to Agawam, MA to help a family with water in their basement and a failed DIY sump pump. The basement was unfinished and never had a water problem until the neighbor had an inground pool installed and the installation rerouted an underground stream to run under the house. Then they noticed water seeping up through the floor in more than one area. They tried installing a DIY sump pump by themselves and it was working at first but then it wasn't helping. They then had another sump pump professionally installed, deeper than the original. Again, it worked at first but didn't solve the problem. The concrete never got dry enough for the company to come back and fill the big square hole in with more cement to seal the pump. Our crew went and installed a TripleSafe, WaterGuard, IceGuard,and a discharge line. After doing a service at a later date, the work our crew did fixed the problem! In the pictures, you can see the ineffective products before we removed them and installed the Basement Systems products.
Basement Waterproofing in Florence, MA
Crew chief Kenney and his team headed out to Florence to waterproof a basement. The first two pictures were the 'Before' shots. They installed CleanSpace, which is the white poly sheet material shown in the last picture. It is a major part of the waterproofing system, and redirects moisture and vapor coming through the wall into the perimeter drain system they installed, which can be seen in the last picture as well. A french drain was also put in at the base of the stairs to catch any water that seeps in from the bulkhead, which can be seen in the third picture. They did a fantastic job!
Sump Pump and WaterGuard Installation in Florence, MA
Kenney and his crew went out to a couple's home in Florence. They reported high flooding in the basement, even though there was a sump pump installed by another company down there already. Our company found that water was seeping in at the base of the walls. Our crew installed two new sump pumps that lead into a TripleSafe, and also put WaterGuard at the base of the walls (seen as the dark cement by the walls in the photos). One photo shows the crushed stone under the floor which was letting in the water.

Wet Basement in North Adams, MA Needs Waterproofing
This customer in North Adams, MA contacted us to check out their basement that has high humidity and lots of water seeping into the space. They described their basement as half the flooring being stone with dirt flooring  where water is coming in through the walls and creating mud. The other half of the basement is poured concrete with water also coming in through the walls. The multiple places where water is indeed entering the basement makes for a very damp basement- as one can imagine. They also said that their dehumidifier is running literally all the time. We look forward to working alongside them to remedy this issue. 
FlexiSpan in Ludlow, MA
The crew went out to Ludlow, MA to help out a family that had water coming in through cracks in the basement foundation. The foundation was concrete, and they had water issues for 7 years prior to our work. They didn't have a sump pump or any of our products, so we went out, assessed the issues, and decided on FlexiSpan as the best solution. The FlexiSpan system first seals the crack with a tough, extremely flexible sealant that will stop most of the water from seeping in through the crack. A second line of defense over this sealant is a beveled foam layer, which would drain any small amount of additional seepage down into your drainage system or into a small drywell created under the basement floor. 
Waterproofing a basement in Ashfield, Massachusetts with Basement Systems innovative products!
Our team was tasked with waterproofing a basement in Ashfield, Massachusetts. The basement had been suffering from water seeping in through the area where the floor and the walls meet.

Sump Pump Service in Conway, MA
Service to a product or system is such an integral part but is often pushed back because like the old adage says, "if it isn't broke-don't fix it," or "if you go looking for trouble you'll find some." As much as those sayings make sense, they also ignore how proper service checks can contribute to a longer life-span for the product or system and can lead to a sooner diagnosis when something is in fact wrong.  We follow a few simple steps to take proper care of your sump pump. We will clean and inspect the sump and discharge line, and change out the batteries. This will help to ensure you won't have a flood due to some sort of preventable mishap. We are proud of the sumppumps we install and confident in their ability to help maintain your dry basement. 
Sump Pump and Dehumidifier Repairs in Sunderland, MA
We visited with this customer this week to perform some maintenance on the TripleSafe Sump Pump as well as the SaniDry XP. We ended up replacing the TripleSafe's UltraSump batter-powered backup pump. This backup pump will keep the sump working even if the power goes out during a storm, which is definitely when you want the sump to work! We had great timing to replace that as it started to rain and thunder shortly after the replacement. We will need to revisit the site to check and adjust the outside discharge line.   
Basement Waterproofing in Sturbridge, MA
The crew went out to Sturbridge, MA to waterproof a basement. As you can see in the first picture, there was a large amount of flooding on the floor. This was because there was no crushed stone beneath the foundation, which is crucial when building a foundation. The crew installed a sump pump, WaterGuard around the perimeter, and a french drain at the base of the bulkhead.
