About the Founder

In 1983 Basement Systems founder Larry Janesky took out an ad in a local paper that read, "Carpentry. No job too small. Call Larry." Once business started rolling in, he opened his own homebuilding and remodeling company.

When one of his homes developed a leaky basement, with cracked foundation walls, he did some research. What he found was that efficient waterproofing technology was not yet available.

Basement Systems was born in 1987 with product development starting in 1990.
