Before joining the DryZone team, I worked as a masonry laborer after high school. I am OSHA certified and also passed welding tests in my curriculum in the past. I have been with DryZone since 2010, and I enjoy working with my coworkers each day. I like going to new houses and facing different challenges on a daily basis. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Nancy, our two sons, Max and Milo and our French Bulldog, Lola.
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.
What a difference a crawlspace encapsulation can make!
Crawl spaces are the areas below our homes that often contain some of the house's most important heating and cooling systems. We work around any obstacles that may be in your crawl space to make sure the job gets done the right way the first time.
The crawl space in the Narragansett, Rhode Island property was poorly insulated and the vapor barrier that was installed was not doing the job. The home owner reached out to DryZone Basement Systems for a free estimate knowing we could help them update their crawl space.
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.
This basement in Jamestown had a problem with flooding for a long time until they called DryZone. We also pride ourselves on our clean up process. The finished basement looks great and the homeowner loves their new space!
This home in Warwick, RI had our SuperSump installed in the basement to take care of water intrusion!
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 difference in appearance is amazing after the CleanSpace Wall is installed. You can't even tell it is the same basement in Middletown, RI!
This crawlspace in Portsmouth, RI had falling fiberglass insulation that was blocking important pipes and duct work. We removed the debris and gave them a clean, dry crawlspace

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!
TrenchDrain is a grated drain that runs acorsss the doorway in the basement. In this East Providence, RI home, it was put in place to keep water from entering the basement from the bulkhead door. It was always flooding and seeping into the basement during heavy rains. The TrenchDrain catches the water and directs it to the sump pump.
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.
This homeowner had been dealing with a basement water problem for years. They decided to get full protection by installing a french drain and a sump pump.
The existing set up was just not cutting it for these customers in Lincoln, RI. One pump in a hole in the basement. They upgraded to the SuperSump with two pumps and a closed liner and lid. What an amazing difference!

Shown in the before and after images is the basement with the gravel floor before the concrete pour.

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.
This 3-foot concrete basement was getting water that was starting to seep over onto the finished side. We installed a SuperSump to pump the water out before it did any damage on the other side of the basement
The home owner in Fairhaven needed a vapor barrier and some stabilizers in his crawl space. He had known about the dealer network of Basement Systems and was looking forward to working with us. The customer had the installation team install SmartJacks to help support the foundation and CleanSpace vapor barrier to save the crawl space from moisture damage.
It's hard to justify fixing a problem you don't see every day, like your crawl space but you smell and feel it every day without even realizing. The air from your crawlspace is the air that gets circulated throughout your entire home. Would you want that air to be damp and moldy or clean and dry?
This home in Westwood, MA had a sump pump "system" in place. A submersible pump in a bucket that was placed into the ground. It could not keep up with the water and it was constantly getting clogged because of the open 'liner'. Our crew installed the SuperSump system which created a closed system. We also poured a new concrete floor in this basement.
Do you have a similar situation in your basement? Upgrade your sump pump to the SuperSump or TripleSafe sump pump system! It's one less thing to worry about!
The customer in Brockton had a fairly small crawl space but wanted it repaired. The crawl was gravel and dirt and allowed unwanted moisture and musty smells into the home. The home owner rented out the property to tenants and wanted the home in appropriate condition. Our system design specialist proposed a vapor barrier to line and encapsulate the entire crawl space.
