Basement Systems®, Inc. has spent years developing our own patented products and system for basement waterproofing. Our system is the most effective, long-term solution that you will find and has been installed in homes throughout the United States and Canada since 1987. We have been the wet basement solution for hundreds of thousands of homeowners with our basement waterproofing system.
Our system takes the best concepts from different waterproofing methods and combines them into one package. We install an invisible drain system around the perimeter of your basement. This drain collects water entering the basement before the water can ever leak onto the floor.
The water is drained to a sump that pumps the water out of your home and safely away from the foundation. The sump pump can include back-up and battery-powered pumps to make sure you are safe even in a flood or power outage.
Basement Systems of New York is part of the Basement Systems network which places requirements of quality and durability on the work done by member contractors.
Other basement companies may try and sell you inferior products or systems at the cheapest cost possible, but you will unfortunately see that there is a reason why they are so cheap. At the first heavy storm you may find yourself with the same flooding problem and be out a couple thousand dollars.
Don't take the risk with your home and make sure that you call us. We will come and provide a free, no-obligation inspection and estimate at no cost to you. We are your partners in basement waterproofing.
Whether you live in Poughkeepsie, Middletown, Newburgh, Spring Valley, Monroe, Kingston or Wappingers Falls, our basement experts will show you how we can customize your waterproofing solution to keep your basement dry all the time!

Heavy equipment is brought in to dig out the entire perimeter of the basement. New drain lines are installed, and sometimes a waterproof coating is applied to foundation walls. This waterproofing strategy is expensive and often damages lawn and garden areas. Exterior drains are prone to clogging with silt and roots over time.
This drain line is installed underneath the basement floor, just inside the foundation walls. The hidden drainage system brings water to a sump pit, where a sump pump automatically pumps it outside. Also known as a French Drain, this system is not prone to clogging; it’s reliable and easy to service.
A hollow plastic baseboard is installed along the base of basement walls to form a drainage channel that directs water to a sump pump system. A baseboard-type drainage system is sometimes recommended when the basement slab is too thin to accommodate a French Drain.
This waterproofing technique involves "painting" basement walls and floors with a waterproof, cement-based coating that's supposed to seal out moisture. Even when applied correctly, this thin membrane usually fails in response to prolonged hydrostatic pressure from outside the foundation.
