Basement Systems maintains high standards and expectations for the dealers in our network. Each dealer is carefully hand-picked from accomplished, reputable, and well-established local companies.
Each dealer has proven themselves to be highly qualified experts within their local industry, who specialize in basement and crawl space environments as their core service area.
As members, Basement Systems Dealers benefit from our free, year-round trainings that are provided at our headquarters.
These trainings are run by our in-house experts and focus on every aspect of the industry, including customer service, sales, best practices for installation, system maintenance, and much more. Dealers are also provided with Certification Testing opportunities upon the completion of each training.
Along with our fully staffed Research and Development Department and our training teams, our headquarters is also the home of our expert team of Dealer Support Specialists.
This team of highly qualified industry experts are standing by every day to provide expert advice to dealers, providing professional recommendations on some of the unique and rare challenges that dealers face as they repair crawl spaces all over the world.
CleanSpace®, Inc., a division of the Basement Systems Network, has led a revolution in the crawl space industry since its launching in 2001. By successfully sealing, drying, and repairing thousands upon thousands of crawl spaces worldwide, the network has proven that crawl space ventilation simply does not work, and can actually increase the levels of humidity, mold, wood rot, and pest infestations in crawl spaces.
As the network continues to prove the success of our crawl space systems again and again, building codes are changing, and homes are becoming more healthy and energy efficient than ever. (Who wants cold winter air venting into their crawl space?) We calculate that since 2007, our network saves homeowners more than 4.6 million dollars in natural gas, electricity, and heating oil each year!
Due to the high standards that Basement Systems, Inc. has upheld, we've been recognized by the Better Business Bureau multiple times for our achievements in the field. Among others, Basement Systems was awarded the BBB Marketplace Ethics Award in 1999, 2003 and 2007, the BBB Consumer Education Award, in 2000, 2003, and 2004, and the Quality Award in 2000.

Even when a basement is waterproofed, humidity can still find its way through the concrete walls and floors, adding to the humidity levels in your basement.
This means that while your basement is not experiencing flooding, it's still musty and damp. This is an ideal environment for mold, mildew, and rot.
Our Sanidry™ XP Dehumidifier is the solution! This system is Energy Star Rated, and powerful enough to keep dry air circulating throughout your basement.
For finished basements, our system can be stored in a closet or utility area, with digital controls that can be adjusted from the comfort of your finished space.

Once your basement is dry, you have an entire floor of usable space in your home -- one that can be finished into new living space.
Even if you're not planning on finishing your basement, you might want to simply upgrade the space by covering those damp concrete walls with something brighter and more cheerful to look at.
Your local Basement Systems Dealer can insulate your basement walls with and prepare them to accept a finished wall panel.
We also have a wide variety of products that can seal your walls, improve their appearance, and make your home more energy efficient.
