Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation

If your crawl space is not insulated, fills with water when it rains or has structural problems you are in the right place! The crawl space is a vital part of your home, but it is often neglected. For your crawl space to optimally perform it should be encapsulated so there is a barrier between the interior space and the ground below. The exposed wood beams should have any signs of rot or mold and the floor joists should be level and have no signs of sagging. Ideally, the crawl space should also be insulated, this will help with air quality and overall home efficiency. Lastly, the crawl space shouldn’t have any signs of moisture, even the slightest amount of water getting into the space can lead to mold growth, rot, and mildew. To ensure the long-term health of your home and to get rid of existing crawl space issues call or click today!

Job Stories From Akron, NY
Basement Waterproofing in Akron, NY

Jessica was frustrated with the constant water in her basement. She called Frank's Basement Systems for a free estimate on a permanent solution. 

Rick Pilarski visited her home and inspected her basement. He designed a full system with BrightWall panels, WaterGuard interior drainage, TripleSafe sump pump system, and SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier.

The WaterGuard system will catch water from the basement as well as rising groundwater. The WaterGuard feeds into the TripleSafe sump pump system which has 3 pumps to always keep you protected. The BrightWall gives both a finished look and protection against seeping water. The Sanidry Sedona is the most efficient residential dehumidifier on the market and can remove almost 12 gallons of water from the air per day. 

With these four components working together, Jessica's basement is fully protected from all water sources.

Basement Waterproofing in Akron, NY

George's 1960's home had a leaking stone foundation that was causing water to pool on the basement floor. He had had enough and decided to call Frank's Basement Systems for a free estimate. 

Mike Ciocca visited George's home and inspected the basement. He confirmed the existing weep holes were not functioning properly and a new system was required. Mike designed a custom system with our patented products to ensure George's basement would be dry for a long time!

George's new waterproofing system started with WaterGuard interior drainage being installed around the perimeter of the basement. Unlike traditional drainage, WaterGuard is installed above the mud-line to minimize clogging and also has inspection ports to allow for system flushes if needed. 

A SuperSump Plus sump pump with WaterWatch alarm completed the new system. The SuperSump Plus will efficiently and effectively pump the water out of the basement. In the event of a flood, the WaterWatch will alert George before the water gets too deep. 

George is now fully protected against getting water in his basement. Call today to schedule your free estimate. 

Basement Waterproofing in Akron, NY

Rob had water entering in at the top of his foundation and causing pooling on the floor. He reached out to Frank's Basement Systems for a free, no obligation estimate on a permanent solution. 

Rick Pilarski visited Rob's home and inspected the basement. He recommended a 3 part solution including wall panels, interior drainage, and a sump pump system. 

WaterGuard interior drainage was the first to be installed. Our patented drainage is installed just below the floor to prevent the system from being clogged with debris. 

A TripleSafe sump pump system was installed to pump out water caught by the WaterGuard. The system includes 3 pumps; one primary, one secondary in case of pump failure or large amounts of water, and a battery back up in the event of power outage. 

BrightWall panels were the last component of this new system to be installed. These panels will trap the water leaking in and direct it into the WaterGuard and not allow it to pool on the floor. 

All together this complete system will keep his basement permanently dry. Call Frank's today to schedule your free estimate!

Stephanie had a block foundation that allowed water to seep into her basement. She wanted to finish her basement and needed to know she wouldn't be wasting her money. She called Frank's Basement Systems for a free, no obligation estimate on the first step to her finished basement.

Rick Pilarski visited Stephanie's home and inspected her basement. He recommended interior drainage and BrightWall paneling across her entire basement. After only four days of work, Stephanie's basement had drainage connected to her existing sump pump and an anti-microbial moisture barrier on her walls.
