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.

Hockessin's Basement Experts

Basement Systems USA is the local, family owned contractor in Hockessin for waterproofing, crawl space repair and mold removal. 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. 

Mold Removal & Remediation

At Basement Systems USA, we provide full mold remediation for basements, including air sample testing. Our company has the ability to not just remediate the mold, but also remove the source of the mold, which is moisture. Unlike other mold remediation companies, our background in basement & crawlspace waterproofing allows us the make sure that the mold won't come back after it has been remediated. We are also AMA Certified.

  • Crawl Space Encapsulation
  • IAQ 6000 Mold Encapsulant


  • Black Mold Removal
  • Dry rot cleaning & repair

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.

Good morning. We moved into a new house in Hockessin DE back in October. The inspection radon levels were in the 4.8 & 4.9 range. We are looking for quotes/options to remediate, especially as we are considering to air seal/insulate the house.

There is an existing perimeter drainage system in the home installed by the previous owners. We have 2 sump pump holes and 4 sump pumps (2 are back-up). There is moisture and mold in the basement. We need it handled so the house may be sold.

We have Bilco doors leading to the basement that leak. We don't simply need the doors replaced but the foundation and stairs as well. We also have another leak in the basement. We don't know where the water is coming from.

Finish an unfinished basement
Vicinity of Davinci Court in Hockessin
Cinder block walls have been wet in past and have white precipitate. We are interested in learning our options for getting them cleaned, perhaps treated, and/or painted. We are also looking into low-cost partial finishing of the basement. This might include ceiling cover (low clearance), and partial floor covering over current concrete. Already have French drain and good sump pump with battery back-up.

Vicinity of Westwoods Blvd in Hockessin
Our house was built in 1993, before the current egress code. We do not have an easy exit from our basement in the event of a fire. We would like to replace one of our small basement windows with an egress window that is in compliance with the current code.

Vicinity of Ridgeview Road in Hockessin
I'd like an estimate on a total finishing of our basement. The idea is to convert it to an added living space. Just a general-purpose space, no specific ideas. Thank you for your consideration.
Vicinity of Hemingway Drive in Hockessin
Would like estimates on several basement concerns: 1) 3 crawlspaces 2) cracks in foundation 3) mold on one wall 4) sump pump replacement 5) possible partial finish
