Basement Systems USA is the local, family owned contractor in Elkton 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 Elkton

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 Elkton waterproofing systems come with lifetime warranties. 

Basement Finishing & Remodeling in Elkton, 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 Elkton 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 basement was still wet from the last rain. It needed the patented basement waterproofing systems called WaterGuard.  WaterGuard is a system that is designed to go on top of the footer so that it will not get clogged by the mud that is next to the footer.  

We also installed the ThermalWall vapor barrier so that moisture from the foundation wall would not evaporate into the basement.  We seal the top and tape the joints so that no air can escape.  The bottom of the vapor barrier is installed into the WaterGuard system so that moisture can drain away.  Now the basement has a guarantee against water seepage from the foundation walls but also will have less moisture in the air.  It is now ready to use.  

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

This customer had an old french drain system in his basement. However, water would seep up through the floor when it rains. The carpet in the basement had to be removed due to excessive water intrusion, ruining the carpet. To solve these issues, our team installed our WaterGuard drainage system along the perimeter of the basement. This system was tied into the existing sump pump system in the basement.

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.

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.

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.
