More About Us

Our Services

Basement Waterproofing

Since 1978 The Basement De-Watering Systems® captures water seepage at the trouble spot, right where the wall and floor meet, and doesn’t require any digging or removal of any flooring.

Basement and Foundation Crack Repair

It’s a good idea to find out all you can about harmful fractures that are affecting your foundation. Cracks are extremely destructive and fixing them is important.

Sump Pump Installation and Maintenance

A sump pump is the heart of a basement or crawl space waterproofing system. This electrically powered device does the heavy lifting to keep your basement dry and free of mold and mildew.

Why Real Dry™?

• The Real Dry™ System, developed by Basement De-Watering Systems®, works immediately and permanently, even when other systems fail.

• Real Dry™ captures and removes water at the trouble spot, where the wall meets the floor, and safely channels the seepage away to a sump pump. The result is a basement that will provide the homeowner with clean, dry, useable living space.

• The Real Dry™ System, by Basement De-Watering Systems®, is installed inside the basement during any season of the year. It can be installed before or after basement walls are finished to stop water problems fast.

• The Real Dry™ System has been designed with the homeowner in mind. The system features attractive preformed corners as well as joint connectors for a clean, professional appearance.
