Mission Home Services is more than just your local waterproofing contractor. We are proud to be part of The Basement Systems® International Network, which is comprised of more than 300 elite basement waterproofing and crawl space repair contractor companies all across the United States and Canada. In business since 1987, the network is headquartered in a 92,000 square foot facility located in Seymour, Connecticut.

Basement Systems® dealers are independently owned and operated local contractors who work together with other dealers across the network to share their experience, practices, and product knowledge.

All Basement Systems dealers have one common goal: to provide customers with the most effective and proven methods to waterproof basements and keep them dry all the time!

About the Founder

The story of Basement Systems starts with company founder Larry Janesky. In 1983, Larry put an advertisement in the local newspaper saying: “Carpentry. No job too small. Call Larry.”

He started getting calls. Eventually, he started his own homebuilding and remodeling company. Soon after, Larry saw the need for basement waterproofing when one of the houses he built developed a cracked foundation wall that was leaking water into the basement.

After some research, Larry decided that there had to be a better way to waterproof homes than the technology that was currently available. As a result, he founded Connecticut Basement Systems, Inc. in 1987 and collaborated with Basement Systems, Inc. for product development starting in 1990.

Our Reviews

You don’t have to take our word for it. Our customers agree and we’re happy about that.

“From the very beginning of the transaction, Dave, the owner was honest, upfront and professional in his interactions with me. I am more than pleased with the work but more importantly, his values instilled in me a sense of confidence in small business owners who still believe in doing what is right for customers and providing outstanding customer service. I HIGHLY recommend Mission Home Services!”

“Dave was super responsive and went above and beyond in getting my basement project completed. He kept in regular contact with me on updates to the project, expected delivery of materials, and on permitting status. Very reliable and did a terrific job on my basement retaining wall.”

Gail B. | ★★★★★

“First of all, I don’t usually do reviews; however, I was so impressed with the guys at Mission Home Services that I felt the need to let others know. We had them out to inspect our basement and give us an estimate on waterproofing it for future renovations. The representatives gave us a great education on not only how a basement leaks, but also how ours was leaking and the correct method to fix it. We highly recommend this company!”
