Back in '92

Celebrating 25 Years

From all of us at Doug Lacey’s Basement Systems we want to thank our amazing clients, staff and community for the past 25 years in business.  In preparing to write this post I thought about what the heck was happening back in ’92.  I thought about all the hard work, dedication and the blood, sweat and tears that have been poured into this business.  I thought about all the clients that we have helped.   Lastly, I thought about what the future holds for the next 25 years.

As a trip down memory lane, here is a brief highlight reel of what was happening back in 1992.

-           The Toronto Blue Jays won their first of two World Series titles

-           Canada celebrated its 125th anniversary of Confederation

-           Bill Clinton became the President of the United States.

-           Aladdin, Home Alone 2 and Batman Returns topped the Box office charts

-           Bright coloured biker shorts, neon windbreakers and LA Gear Lights were the hottest fashions

-           Sir Mix-a-Lot, Boyz II Men, Kris Kross and TLC were topping the Billboard singles charts

-           A youthful, energetic & determined Doug Lacey (wearing his neon shorts and listening to “Baby Got Back” in his Sony Walkman) founded Basement Systems Calgary Inc.

To grow a business from the ground up and be proudly serving your community 25 years later takes a massive amount of dedication and hard work.  In the early days, the company's office was located in a basement rental suite in South Calgary. In the beginning, Doug commuted back and forth from Windermere, British Columbia, while his family was still living there.

He not only sold his own products but installed them on his own as well. In 1993, Doug rented out a 2500 square foot bay in Calgary and moved his family to Okotoks. In that same year Doug changed the company name from Protecrete Inc. to Basement Systems Calgary Inc. Soon, his original location became too small and the company moved to our present location at 5990-51 Street S.E in 2008. Doug Lacey’s Basement Systems has repaired over 15,000 homes in 25 years or on average 600 homes a year!  This equals to over 30 miles of basement wall seepage repair which is fully backed by a lifetime warranty!

We now have over 40 full-time staff and are looking forward to the next 25 years in business.
