Our History

Total Basement Finishing (TBF) is an exclusive dealer network of contractors that offer basement finishing solutions to homeowners across the U.S. and Canada. Our story first began in Seymour, CT, 1987, when founder and owner, Larry Janesky, entered the basement waterproofing industry and soon created Basement Systems, Inc. Basement Systems Inc. is the industry leader in dry basement technology and offers innovative products that keep basements and crawl spaces drier and healthier.

With our knowledge in basement waterproofing, we set out to create a finishing system that was mold and water-resistant, as well as attractive and cozy for all families. This led to the beginning of Total Basement Finishing; an exclusive basement remodeling system designed with beauty and durability in mind. Our system includes key basement waterproofing technology that is mold, mildew, rot, and water-resistant, so it stands the test of time. Our over 30 years in the basement industry have helped thousands of homeowners achieve their dream basement space; whether it be a family room, bedroom, home office, game room, or in-law apartment!

Larry Janesky

About the Owner

Larry Janesky started out as a 17-year-old self-employed carpenter. After building over 20 homes, he spent the next two decades building Basement Systems into an industry-leading company specializing in basement waterproofing and crawl space repair.

Having a dry basement is nice, but not as nice as having a beautiful basement finished with waterproof materials. Total Basement Finishing is Larry's solution to finishing basements without using organic materials. That way, you get a livable finished space for your family that stays dry even when the worst happens.

Today, TBF has over 30 dealers and counting across North America. Larry's interest in home health and efficiency has led him to write 3 books - Dry Basement Science, Crawl Space Science, and Basement Finishing Science, and develop an exclusive line of products protected with more than 30 patents.
