Basement Waterproofing

Your Basement Should Have a Pool Table, Not An Indoor Pool.

Waterproofing will eliminate moisture, ensuring that mold and mildew do not show their ugly, destructive and hazardous faces in your basement. Not only can furniture, toys and clothes become irreparably damaged, but your family can get very ill because of it. Breathing in mold can lead to a wide range of serious health-related issues.

Don’t risk your foundation, basement, belongings, home investment or your family’s health. CTHandiMan has a cost-effective solution for all your damp basement issues. We can even make it happen within just two days.

Real Dry™ Baseboard Channel
The Real Dry™ system is a baseboard channel system that controls hydrostatic water pressure at its source of entry. It is vinyl baseboard that is bonded to the floor and sits next to the wall. The system can be drained to either a sump pit or floor drain (if allowed by your local municipality).

Advantages
1. Affordable: 1- to 2-day installation means less cost for you.
2. Non-invasive: Because your concrete floor isn’t torn up, there is virtually no dust and mess.
3. Repair work is also non-invasive.
4. Can be installed in finished homes as well as in homes that are not yet finished.
5. System can be painted.
6. Real Dry™ epoxy will not break down over time.
7. Real Dry™ epoxy will set up in wet environments. That means you don’t have to wait until your basement is dry to fix your problem.
8. Real Dry™ only deals with seepage that enters the structure, so humidity levels are not increased.
9. Real Dry™ can easily be sealed if radon gas is a concern or problem in your home.
Note: Real Dry™ epoxy is only available to professionally trained Basement De-Watering Systems® dealers and authorized installers.

Disadvantages
1. Cannot be used in sub-standard construction (red brick bat, sand stone block, dirt, or extremely thin concrete floors, and dirt floor crawlspaces).

Sub-Floor Tile
Sub-floor interior tile systems relieve hydrostatic water pressure from beneath the floor. They cut and remove the concrete floor from around the outside perimeter foundation wall. Then they dig a trench next to the footing. A field tile is inserted into the trench with aggregate rock. Concrete is then poured to replace the broken floor. This system must drain into a sump pump pit.

This is the only system that can be used in sub-standard construction (red brick bat, sand stone block, dirt, or extremely thin concrete floors, and dirt floor crawlspaces).
