The Basement Systems Integrity Scholarship Fund

Our founder, Larry Janesky, began his business adventure at age 17 when he put an advertisement in the local newspaper: "Carpentry. No job too small. Call Larry." This led him to start his own homebuilding and remodeling company, seeing an opportunity for improvement in the basement waterproofing industry. Basement Systems Inc. now has over 160 dealers nationwide helping homeowners.

We take basement waterproofing to a whole new level. We pride ourselves on what it means to work with a home repair contractor as well as what it means to work for one. It's an industry that may not seem glamorous on the surface, but one that impacts lives.

We recognize and celebrate the value of hard-working employees in all areas and are inspired by the tremendous potential found within the next generation entering the workforce. One of our company values is Integrity. We believe in the importance of being honest and always doing the right thing. That's why we created the Integrity Scholarship Fund.

The Integrity Scholarship Fund awards (1) $2,500 award once a year to students entering into, or continuing their education. Each year, one award is given to a student seeking a trade school degree.
