Ellicott City's Basement Waterproofing Contractor

Basement Systems USA is the local, family owned contractor in Ellicott City 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 Ellicott City

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 Ellicott City waterproofing systems come with lifetime warranties. 

Basement Finishing & Remodeling in Ellicott City, 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 Ellicott City 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.

Job Stories From Ellicott City, MD
Basement Waterproofing in Ellicott City, MD

At Basement Systems USA, we recently had the pleasure of helping a homeowner in Ellicott City, MD, who was facing a frustrating and persistent issue with their basement. For quite some time, they noticed that one of their window wells was collecting water every time it rained, eventually leading to water leaking into the basement. Understandably, they were concerned as the problem seemed to be getting worse over time, threatening the comfort, safety, and value of their home. Our System Design Specialist was then dispatched to thoroughly inspect the home, diagnose the source of the problem, and recommend a solution tailored to their needs. After the inspection, it was clear that installing our SuperSump system would effectively address the water issues they were facing. 

Basement Windows in Ellicott City, MD

Recently, we had the opportunity to work on a unique project in Ellicott City, MD. The homeowner was excited about transforming their basement into a functional living space, which included adding a bedroom. Their vision was clear: they wanted to incorporate a new window egress for safety and natural light, and also desired a double door walkout to increase accessibility and enhance the basement's aesthetic appeal. After the homeowner reached out to our Customer Care team, we quickly set an appointment that fit their schedule. Our dedicated System Design Specialist then paid a visit for a thorough inspection. Although the homeowner didn't report any water or moisture issues, our specialist performed a comprehensive evaluation to ensure that the proposed changes wouldn't lead to future problems, especially considering the significant alterations to the basement's structure.

When it rains heavily, like today, the walkway from my driveway to my doorway floods, the garage gets water in the center of the floor, water seeps into the basement through what might be the floor or the wall behind a closet, i see it coming in under the closet. Also, the area outside a basement door pools with water. We have a sump pump. We have a back up battery but I'm not sure they are working.
