Cecil County, MD Waterproofing Contractor

Basement Systems USA is the local, family owned contractor in Cecil County for waterproofing, finishing, and crawl space repair. With over 75 years combined experience and a full-time, professional staff we are ready to serve you and improve your home. 

Basement Waterproofing & Crawl Space Repair in Cecil County

Flooding, water seepage or even high humidity can quickly result in mold growth and water damage in your basement or crawl space. We prevent this from happening by installing an interior drainage system in the basement that is connected to a high volume sump pump. Any water that makes it to the basement is collected and pumped out of the home without you even noticing. 

Just like the basement, in the crawl space we similarly place a sump pump system and dehumidifier to prevent water issues. The entire area is encapsulated with vapor barrier to prevent mold growth. Our crawl space system comes with a 25-year warranty. 

We Provide:
  • Basement Waterproofing
  • Crawl Space Encapsulation
  • Exclusive, Patented Products
  • Humidity Control
  • Structural Repair
  • Basement Egress Windows
You Receive:
  • Permanently Dry Basement
  • Clean Protected Crawlspace
  • Protection against Mold
  • Improved Home Value

If the walls of the basement or bowing inwards we install wall anchors or braces to straighten the walls. If the floor above the crawl space is sagging we install SmartJack support jacks to raise the floor back to a level position. Our Cecil County waterproofing systems come with life-time warranties. 

Basement Finishing & Remodeling in Cecil County, MD

Waterproofing your basement prevents outside water from coming in but what if a pipe bursts or the water heater leaks inside the home. A newly finished basement done by your average contractor will mold and rot if there is an internal leak. You'll have to tear out your new basement! We fix this issue.

Our Products Include :
  • Waterproof, washable, insulated walls           
  • Mold-Resistant, No-Sag suspended ceiling
  • Modular carpet, tile & faux wood flooring
  • Basement egress windows

  • Energy-efficient, double-paned basement windows
  • Attractive Sunhouse basement window wells
  • French, bifold, louvre & six-paneled steel doors

Unlike the average Cecil County contractor we use completely inorganic, waterproof materials. Even if the basement floods your walls and floors will not be damaged by the water. These waterproof products are patented and are built to create an attractive finished basement that lasts a lifetime.

This install consisted of a Cleanspace Vapor Barrier, Waterguard and a SuperSump Pump with Battery Backup. The CleanSpace will direct any water that the customer had coming in through their block foundation, down to the waterguard which will then flow the water over to the SuperSump and pumped out of the basement. Our SuperSump Pump has a high end 1/3 hp Zoeller cast iron pump that pumps out over 2600 gallons per hour and when paired with our UltraSump Batter Back Up, this customers basement will stay dry during any power outages.

 

Job Stories From Cecil County, MD
Basement Waterproofing in Elkton, MD

A homeowner in Elkton, MD was concerned about their basement flooding. Thanks to our team and our quality waterproofing products, we were able to eliminate both the water in the basement and the homeowner’s concerns for good. We installed our SuperSump sump pump which pumps up to 2,280 gallons an hour and stops water from reentering the basement. WaterGuard will direct any water leaking through the walls and floor into the sump pump before it has the chance to do any damage. In case of pump failure, our reliable Ultrasump system also removes massive amounts of water while maintaining battery power and serving as a backup pump. The homeowner couldn’t be happier to have a guaranteed dry basement.

Waterproofing a Wet Basement in Elkton, MD

To ensure a homeowner would have a safe and dry basement, we began our spot mold treatment to rid the customer’s home of all mold. We installed the reliable SuperSump sump pump and WaterGuard XL system to prevent water from entering the basement. The quality SaniDry dehumidifier was added to control the humidity and therefore decrease the risk of water and mold as well as the IceGuard system which is a backup sump pump in case of freezing pipes. Now, the homeowner has a basement that is guaranteed to stay dry with these products.

Water Seeping From the Exterior Basement Steps

 The customer had a problem with water coming into his basement from the steps.  Water was actually coming up from the floor at the base of the bottom step.  They also had water coming from the base of the foundation walls and the walls were very damp.  

We installed a TrenchDrain in front of the step to capture water coming down the steps but also to relieve hydrostatic pressure from below.  Then we installed the WaterGuard system, which we connected to our SuperSump system.  To finish the job properly, we installed a vapor barrier over the walls to prevent moisture from entering the basement.
