Best reasons to finish your leaky wet basement Advanced Basement Systems Ontario 27We know! This sounds a little dramatic, but it’s true! A dry basement CAN improve your life. It’s why we do what we do: we’re in the business of helping people in southwestern Ontario for more than 16 years now… and we also happen to fix wet basements!

If you have a leaky basement, can you relate to any of the following? 

Checking the weather for rain? 

  • Do you check the weather forecast dreading times of heavy rain because of your leaky basement? 

Think about your basement when it’s raining? 

  • When it’s raining, are you worried about leaks? Are you down in your basement looking for water? 

Worried about water damage to your finished space? 

  • Carpet, drywall, flooring - even a partially finished space can be a huge problem when damaged by water! 

Concerned about your stored items? 

  • Do you have items stored up on blocks or in waterproof bins? When you’re away are you worried about water damaging your possessions because you’re not there to move them? 

Embarrassed about your wet basement? 

  • Have you ever dreaded the thought of family members or friends seeing your basement? 

Damp, mouldy, musty? 

You just can’t handle another flood!

  • It’s time-consuming, tiring and expensive to deal with a flooded basement, not to mention the hassle of insurance claims and replacement costs!

What about the value of your home? 

  • Whether you’re in the market to sell or not, a leaky wet basement impacts not just the day-to-day enjoyment of your home, but also it’s value. 

Now imagine never having to concern yourself with a leaky or flooded basement again! A space you can be proud of. A healthy home for your family. No more money down the drain or time wasted on your wet basement! 

Still not sure if a dry basement can change your life? We’ve helped thousands of homeowners, and here’s what just a few of them had to say about our basement waterproofing products: 

"Excellent work, very efficient, best product in the market. The flooding yesterday, everyone around us received water but we did not. The proof is in the pudding." ~ Murray L.

"I live in a century-old farmhouse which had a leaky basement for the entire time I lived here (40 years). 10 years ago I had Advanced Basement Systems in to waterproof the leaky walls and install a new sump pump system. Since then, there has not been a drop of water in my basement. The humidity and musty smells are gone as well. I have the sump pump serviced each year and I can wholeheartedly say that it is such a relief to have a dry basement! Thanks Advanced Basement Systems!" ~ Terry M.

"We have already feet safer to go to bed at night during a rainstorm and awake to dryness!!"  ~ King P.

"Advanced Basement Systems rectified a problem in our cold cellar which had existed from the day we bought the house and possibly since the house was built. ABS turned a mouldy, smelly, dank dungeon into a functioning, clean, dry cold cellar." ~ Sheila A.

"It has been approximately a year since ABS took our sump pump/cold cellar room from a moldy, smelly, spider ridden room you wouldn't want to be in, to a clean, dry, odorless room that can now be used as it was intended, and I am happy to say that we haven't had any issues with their service or products." ~ Erwin V.

"The Triple Safe sump system is the best investment I ever made. Can sleep at night now!" ~ Graham H.

… We could go on and on!
