              Hi Todd, Your crew did a super job with our installation. They were polite, professional, and on time. I can't believe how fast and efficient they were. When they left they cleaned up and took the time to explain all the ins and outs of the system. That's super service in my book! Thanks, Jack

              Dear Courtney, Please give my heart felt best wishes for a job well done to Sam, Todd, and the rest of the crew. They did a great job, in very little time, and even built new stairs for me! Which by the way, have been used quite often in the past months. Here in Scituate, Rhode Island, we are 14 inches above average in rain fall. My back yard looks like a swamp with lots of standing water, but my basement is DRY!! The sump pump is running 24/7 without any problems. It is amazing compared to one year ago. Thank you all for your professional attitudes, kindness and understanding. Sincerely, Nancy Hankinson A very grateful customer!

              Ricky and his crew were amazing. I was told the job would take 2 days; they managed to finish in one day and my basement looked beautiful (sump pump, dehumidifier, waterproofing and installation of drainage and foaming). I cannot say enough about this very professional company from Joe the representative to Ricky the crew chief. I chose DryZone because they were willing to come on a weekend to assess the property

    The tall crawlspace in the Westerly, Rhode Island property was very damp and dirty. There was water and dirt coming up from the ground causing mud. The home owner had seen an ad for DryZone Basement Systems and contacted us for a free estimate. The project consisted of encapsulating the crawlspace and making sure it was safe from any moisture or water. A sump pump system was also installed as a precautionary measure.

    The Cleanspace liner was installed in this Narragansett, RI crawlspace to isolate the home from the earth completley and permanently. The liner is a heavy 20-mil thick material comparable to a pool liner. The bright white color really brightens the crawlspace to make better use of available light!

    Mold can grow on dirt, insulation, framing and even under the carpet on the first floor. Mold destroys organic materials as it feeds on them. Mold cannot grow when the humidity levels are reduced to below 50% and the crawlspace must be separated from the earth. The sagging insulation you see is because the moisture is absorbed by the organic, fiberglass insulation and it becomes so heavy that gravity pulls it down. We removed all of the organic material in this Narragansett, RI crawlspace and installed CleanSpace to isolate the earth from the rest of the home.

    The owners of this Warwick, RI home were planning on selling the house but needed to take care of the leaking basement before passing it over to a new owner. Without wanting to spend a fortune, they called DryZone and explained the situation, looking to us for help. After proposals and discussions, we created a plan that suited the basement and their budget, then we could prep for install. We installed a perimeter of Waterguard to collect the water seeping in along the walls, as well as a SuperSump system that will get the water from the Waterguard and pump it out of the basement. This worked out perfectly and was able to help get their home sold!

    The home owner in Providence, Rhode Island knew he had to do something about his damp basement and reached out to DryZone Basement Systems for a free estimate. Our system design specialist Patrick Cahill and owner Todd Lutinski went to the property and discussed their options of waterproofing the basement. They decided pouring a new concrete floor would be a great benefit for the basement instead of the wooden floor. The wooden floor was torn up in preparation to pour the concrete. Also added to the walls was the CleanSpace vapor barrier to keep moisture out of the basement.

    Clara, from East Providence, RI, had a nasty, open bucket working overtime to try and remove water from her basement. During heavy rains it would always seep in making her entire finished basement wet! We upgraded her bucket to a TripleSafe sump pump. It is the world's most reliable sump pump system with three pumps and a battery back up. The TripleSafe assures protection from all the problems that can arise to flood a basement, pump failure, power failure and too much volume!

    This basement/crawlspace combination in Little Compton, RI needed some waterproofing and insulating. Along with our TripleSafe sump pump and two SaniDry Dehumidifiers, two SmartDrain leak alarm systems, as well as the CleanSpace vapor barrier, was put up around the whole space to keep moisture out and prevent mold from growing. Then, while considering convenience, we use long corded remote alarms so that they could be placed at the beginning of the crawl space and the homeowner can easily turn them off once they hear the alarm and identify the leak.

    In New Bedford, MA the old system just wasn’t cutting it in this basement and needed some improvements made for the upcoming rainy season. After taking a look at what was happening in the basement, we made a plan that would collect water and send it back out. We know that if water wants to get in your basement, it will, so the best way to keep the space dry is to take it out as soon as it gets in the space. Along with Waterguard and a TripleSafe sump system, the TrenchDrain works perfectly to catch the water seeping in and start it on the journey out.
