What qualifies me to write this book? I am the founder and president of Basement Systems Inc, the world’s largest basement waterproofing company. Since the beginning, Basement Systems has actively sought better ways of doing things. We are not the kind of company that has a single year of experience 20 times; rather we are a learning organization, hell bent on seeking the best way.
Basement Systems has developed a close network of like-minded basement waterproofing contractors that are dealers of our products. We have more than 240 dealers in six countries, some with more experience than me, who install the best basement waterproofing products and systems ever developed. We are not saying these products are the best because they are ours – but rather they are ours because they are the best. Without our more-than-significant efforts toward creating better ways of fixing wet basements, most of these products would not exist, as we are the inventors and developers of them.
Because we work with so many basement waterproofing experts every day, and fix thousands of wet basements ourselves (we fixed 2,474 wet basements from our Connecticut office alone in 2004), we bring you the collective wisdom of thousands of experts and hundreds of thousands of jobs completed. It’s all we do and we love it. That’s what makes me an expert.
