GrateProducts™, LLC

In 2006, Steve and his team began work on his greatest invention, the GrateDrain System. The GrateDrain, along with GrateSump and GrateTrench, have changed the way basement drainage is being done. Steve pioneered the idea of closed drainage systems. He informed his local company in August 2006 that Pioneer Basement would only install closed drainage systems. 

In late 2006, the Grate Products Contractor Network was founded to distribute quality basement drainage products and train Authorized Contractors throughout the world as to properly installing them. They manufactured and distributed this revolutionery drainage system to authorized contractors all across the country, from Cape Cod to Portland OR.
