The Basement Systems® Contractor Network is the largest network of basement and crawl space contractors worldwide.
Basement Systems consists of a network of more than 300 dealerships, and was founded in 1987.
The dealerships are local, independently owned and operated companies that are united under the common goal of creating drier, healthier, and more energy efficient crawl spaces. We are not a franchise!
Each Basement Systems® dealer works with the network cooperatively, sharing knowledge, experiences, and best practices with one another. We also employ a full-time Research and Development Department tasked with keeping us on the cutting edge.
TerraFirma is the local Basement Systems® Dealer for the Oregon and Washington area, including Tacoma, Portland, Seattle, nearby Bellevue, Vancouver, Renton, Eugene, Salem, Gresham, Hillsboro, and the surrounding areas.

Not just anyone can become a member of our network! We carefully hand-pick our dealerships from well-established, accomplished companies that are stable and reputable within their local area.
Our dealers are experts in the industry, specializing in crawl space repair and moisture control as a core function of their business. These are specialists who work exclusively in crawl spaces every day!
As members of the Basement Systems® Network, they also benefit from year-round training sessions provided at the headquarters, free of charge.
These trainings focus on every aspect of the business, including customer service, sales, installation, system maintenance, and much more.
Dealers also take our in-house Certification Testing upon the completion of each training.
Along with our full-time Research And Development Department and Training Team, the headquarters also maintains a fully staffed Dealer Support Department.
This is a team of highly qualified industry experts, who are standing by every day to provide expert advice on unique challenges that our dealers face as they work in crawl spaces all over the world.
The Basement Systems® Network has pioneered a revolution in the crawl space industry! Our network has proven that crawl space ventilation leads to mold, humidity, and higher energy bills, and has launched the crawl space encapsulation industry!
Through our work, building codes have begun to change, and homes have become healthier and more energy efficient. We calculate that since 2007, our network saves homeowners more than 4.6 million dollars in natural gas, electricity, and heating oil each year!
The Better Business Bureau has recognized us multiple times for our accomplishments. Among others, Basement Systems was awarded the BBB Marketplace Ethics Award in 1999, 2003 and 2007, the BBB Consumer Education Award, in 2000, 2003, and 2004, and the Quality Award in 2000.
No matter what you need for your crawl space, we have a product that's custom-designed just for you! We've been awarded more than 30 patents for our innovative products, and have won more than 40 quality and innovation awards!
These products have been successfully used to meet the needs of homeowners with crawl spaces in hundreds of thousands of homes worldwide, including repairs and upgrades for crawl spaces.
Our crawl space products serve the following needs for homeowners:
If you have a vented crawl space that's moldy, musty, and showing signs of wood rot, then you know better than most that crawl space vents simply do not work.
The Basement Systems® Network has the alternative! Our experts have designed a complete crawl space system -- one that includes a crawl space liner and energy-efficient dehumidifier system.
We can install a complete system in your home quickly -- with a typical installation being completed in less than a day. Once installed, your crawl space will be drier, healthier, and more energy efficient than ever before!
Our crawl space liner is made with seven layers of tough, durable material that's designed to withstand traffic from the homeowner and workers -- with a 25-year written, transferable warranty!
Flooding in a crawl space can lead to a variety of issues, including mold, moisture, and ruined fiberglass insulation. Before the crawl space can be dried or upgrades are made to the space, it's extremely important that all sources of standing water are addressed.
Your local Basement Systems® dealer has access to a variety of drainage and water removal solutions for your crawl space, including sump pump systems, drain systems, drainage matting, and our custom-designed crawl space perimeter drain system.
If your crawl space floods due to a plumbing failure, a homeowner can go weeks, months, or even years before the leak is discovered. Our system includes a water alarm system, so you know right away.
Fiberglass insulation installed between the floor joists in a crawl space is notorious for becoming weighed down with humidity and moisture. As it does, it will sag downwards, eventually falling uselessly to the ground.
Basement Systems® Dealers have exclusive access to our SilverGlo™ Crawl Space Insulation System -- an innovative, waterproof insulation and radiant heat barrier.
When installed on your crawl space walls, SilverGlo™ doubles as a vapor barrier, protecting your crawl space from moisture and humidity from the walls.
For your crawl space floor, we recommend the TerraBlock™ Crawl Space Floor Insulation & Vapor Barrier System -- which is rugged enough to withstand foot traffic without damage!
Crawl spaces can experience structural damage for many reasons, the main reasons being the following:
Structural damage in a crawl space can manifest itself in the home in many ways, including uneven floors, jamming doors, and cracks in the drywall.
Common solutions for crawl space structural repair are often ineffective -- and can even lead to further structural damage as they're installed.
Our award-winning SmartJack® Crawl Space Support System provides a permanent, warrantied solution!
Each member of the Basement Systems® Network provides homeowners in their service area with free written quotes for all repairs and upgrades for their crawl space.
Each quote includes a professional, on-site inspection and measurement of your crawl space. We'll answer any questions you have, and map out your crawl space using our innovative crawl space software program. Your specialist will take you shopping through our products, making recommendations on which options would work best for your scenario.
