Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation

If your crawl space is not insulated, fills with water when it rains, or has structural problems, we can help. 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 be free of any signs of rot or mold and the floor joists should be level with no signs of sagging.

Ideally, the crawl space should also be insulated, this will help with air quality and overall home efficiency. The crawl space shouldn’t have any signs of moisture as even the slightest amount of water 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

David, a homeowner in Akron, NY, came up to our booth at the Buffalo Home Show and let us know that he noticed some cracks along the front and back walls of his basement that needed repairing. Our crew had just the solution. We came out to David's home and installed our Xypex crystalline solution. This solution hardens when it comes into contact with water, allowing it to seep deep into the crack and cut off the source of water. The best part? Xypex is a flexible sealant, meaning it can expand with the cracks if they widen further.

After injecting the cracks with Xypex, we noticed David did not have a sump pump! We installed our patented SuperSump Plus system for David, which contains a 1/3 horsepower cast-iron Zoeller pump capable of removing 2,600 gallons of water per hour.

Fracture Repair in Akron, NY.

Julie P. noticed a buildup of water in her basement but had no idea where it was coming from! Curious, and eager to find out, Julie reached out to Frank's Basement Systems for a free inspection and estimate. 

Frank Nati was at the scene in no time and after a thorough inspection, found a hairline fracture hidden in the corner of Julie's basement!

In order to reach the fracture, the crew from Frank's had to remove Julie's generator panel, wood board, defunct well tanks and softening system! From there, the rest was easy! Xypex Crack Repair was applied to the wall, sealing the crack. Julie can now rest assured knowing her basement will be water free and under warranty for up to 25 years!

Foundation Repair in Akron, NY

Kimberly had some concerns about her foundation walls. There was some bowing and shearing in the block walls of her Akron home. She called Frank's Basement Systems for a professional assessment. Russ visited her home and inspected the walls. With the help of an engineer, Russ designed a solution for Kimberly's home to prevent any further damage.
The best solution for Kimberly was to install 8 steel beams along the damaged walls. These beams will redistribute the weight of the house from the walls to the beams, preventing more damage and an eventual collapse.

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!
