Hockessin's Basement Experts

Basement Systems USA is the local, family owned contractor in Hockessin for waterproofing, 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

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
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 Hockessin waterproofing systems come with life-time warranties.

The customer wanted to finish the basement, but this basement needed some work done first.  First, we installed the WaterGuard waterproofing system.  Then we added CarbonArmor to repair the bowing foundation wall.  We also had to add an egress to meet code.  The we finished the basement with our TBF finishing system, which comes with a 50-year guarantee against water or mold damage.  We finished the job with some nice barn doors and our grey Thermal Plank flooring.   

Job Stories From Hockessin, DE
Waterproofing a Completely Finished Basement in Hockessin, DE

This house was for sale with a contract but failed inspection due to signs of water seepage and mold spot on the drywall.  No use doing mold remediation until you have eliminated the source of the mold, which was foundation water seepage and high levels of humidity in the basement.  This basement was complete finished with bathrooms and floor coverings.  

First we removed all the moldy carpet.  Then we cut the bottom of the wall so we could remove and haul away the moldy drywall.  Then we cut the concrete floor and installed our Waterguard system with TripleSafe Sump to stop the water seepage.  We also installed our SaniDry super dehumidifier.

Next, we re-cemented the floor and reinstallation of the bottom of the walls.  But we would never use drywall for this because drywall is very vulnerable to mold and water damage.  Instead we use TBF Everlast wall, which is non-organic and comes with a 50-year guarantee against water and mold damage.  Then we replaced the flooring with 100% waterproof flooring specifically designed for basements.  The end result is a dry, mold free, beautiful basement.

Purchased house 30 days ago and sump pump failed. Basement has french drain, well and a pedestal sump pump that died. Interested in your triple sump pump system.
Project Location: Hockessin, DE
Would like to get an estimate on excavating the front and left side of the house and installing waterproof membrane. The basement walls get damp, but no water leaking in. Prefer to fix the issue from the outside instead of on the inside. Sharing photos of the basement inside after the recent rain.

We used your services when we lived in North East, MD and now live in Hockessin (for last 6.5 years). Our basement has several issues: rain gets in almost every time it rains (leaks under basement door from outside stairwell/drain not draining well), foundation is cracked, a leak is coming from somewhere else on the finished side of the basement, and we need new basement windows and an upgrade to our sump pump. We are finding new areas almost daily...please help! Thanks!
