This is the second time this homeowner has used Keystone. We did great the first time so naturally, they called us back when it was time for a professional air purification solution.

The past few years data from Luft showed a very high particulate matter along with other issues. We are happy to report, After a few weeks of the Aspen they literally have the best air quality in 3+ years and it isn’t even close. They have the data to prove it! they are actually cutting back on allergy medications now.
The homeowner had a leaking basement for a number of years and had finally reached a point where they wanted to fix the issue. The damage had increased over the years and the homeowner was worried that structural damage would soon follow. The issue started as a musty basement odor, but soon turned into puddles on the basement floor and then flooding. They called Keystone Basement Systems to find out what could be done to address this issue.
The homeowner wanted to keep the whole basement dry so we installed WaterGuard around the perimeter. They wanted to keep the whole basement dry all of the time so we added a TripleSafe pumping station with back up protection in case of a power outage, tripped circuit or mechanical issue on the primary pump. This gave the owner significant comfort as the system was designed correctly with redundancy. Lastly, to eliminate musty odors, a high performance Sedona Dehumidifier was installed. The Owner took advantage of our extremely easy to use Home Repair Financing and had only a low monthly installment to pay each month with no pre-payment penalty.
In closing, the homeowner was very impressed and pleased.
