Just about every contractor who knows how to hang drywall, thinks they have the expertise to finish a basement. After all, how hard can it be, right? But basements pose certain challenges that aren’t a factor in the upper floors of your home, and the products and materials that work in your living room are not suitable for your basement. That’s why it is so important to hire an expert.

Basements are usually at least partially underground, so the walls and floors are colder and need to be insulated. There is more humidity in the basement, commonly due to moisture from the ground migrating through the concrete, or the heat of your dryer coming into contact with the cool walls, forming condensation. There is also the potential for flooding due to sump pump failure, leaks from your hot water heater, icemaker line or washing machine hose, a broken pipe, or the dreaded toilet overflow. 

Drywall and fiberglass insulation should never be used in basements. Even if you never have a flood, the high humidity will cause mold to grow on these organic materials and within a few years, your basement will start to smell like mold, and that’s just not healthy air to breathe. 

Basement Systems USA, Inc. never uses organic materials when finishing basements. On this job, you can see that we used a different type of wall board that is called Everlast Wall, which comes with a vinyl finish or unfinished and ready for paint.  Everlast Wall is 100% inorganic and comes with a 50-year warranty against water damage and will never have mold growth. We also used a beautiful, inorganic wood-look flooring that comes with a guarantee against water damage. 

The installation of a SaniDry XP dehumidifier guarantees that the basement will never feel damp. Most basements need a dehumidifier, especially if it is a finished basement where you and your family will be spending time. The standard store-bought dehumidifiers are not powerful enough to do the job. The SaniDry is 7-9 times more powerful than a regular dehumidifier, and not only does it dry the air, it’s 2-stage filter removes airborne allergens. 

Lastly, we added a Rockwell Egress window well, which allows for escape out of the basement in case of emergency. Building code requires that every finished basement has at least one egress window. Rockwells are a safety feature with a bonus! They allow lots of daylight to enter and brighten up your space.

So, if you hire a contractor to finish your basement, and you see him (or her!) dragging sheets of drywall and big rolls of pink insulation toward the entrance of your basement, wait until he makes the next trip to his truck to grab those boxes of laminated flooring that he plans to install, then lock your doors, turn out the lights and pretend you’re not home. And always remember - Mold LOVES organic materials, but it doesn’t stand a chance when it’s up against Basement Systems’ inorganic building products!!

Basement Waterproofing & Crawl Space Encapsulation in Newark

Wet basements are as old as the structures themselves. Water will leak into a basement through any opening it can, including your walls, floors, and the joints. Water can even pass through the concrete itself -- which is one reason why basements are notoriously damp, humid spaces.

Crawl spaces are no exception. When a home is built a crawl space is ripe for humidity, mold, or pests due to the vents installed, and the common use of batt insulation. Batt insulation is a magnet for moisture and pests and can fall apart and away from the home over time. This will cause your home's temperature to become to cold in the winter and too humid in the summer. In turn, the costs of your energy bills rise.


We Provide:
  • Basement Waterproofing
  • Crawl Space Encapsulation
  • Exclusive, Patented Products
  • Humidity Control
You Receive:
  • Permanently Dry Basement
  • Clean Protected Crawlspace
  • Protection against Mold

At Basement Systems USA, our waterproofing systems come with life-time warranties that are transferable.  You will rest easy at night knowing that you have a dry and comfortable home.

Basement Finishing & Remodeling in Newark, DE

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

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

Unlike the average Newark 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 Newark, DE
Transformed basement in Newark, DE

This Newark basement was a real mess.  The basement looked more like a dungeon and had constant water issues with dampness. We installed WaterGuard around the perimeter with a SuperSump system to take the water out of the house. Then we installed a Trench drain in front of the steps so that water could not come in from the stairwell. A vapor barrier was installed to cover the damp walls and prevent moisture from flowing into the basement. Last but not least, a SaniDry dehumidifier was installed to make sure that the basement air stays below 55% to prevent mold growth.

Wet Basement Transformed into a Beautiful, Dry, & Usable Space

This Basement required a waterproofing system with a SuperSump sum pump and Battery backup before we could finish the basement.  We also installed a SaniDry XP Dehumidifier to keep the humidity at a low level, especially to combat the humid summer months.  Once the basement was guaranteed to stay dry, the customer felt comfortable investing the money to transform the space into a finished basement.  The walls are guaranteed against mold or water damage.  The floor is also designed to withstand moisture and has a thermal gap under it which makes it up to 7 degrees warmer. We don’t just finish the basement, we make sure that the right materials are used to prevent mold or damage in the future.
