A basement that's wet or moldy isn't functioning the way it's supposed to-- as an extension of your home. Problems with wet or overly humid basements often stem from leaky pipes, flooding during heavy rainfall, or sump pump failure. Because basements are typically built below ground level, they are prone to flooding and the effects of shifting, expanding earth. By installing vapor barriers and insulated wall panels, we can seal out that moisture while ensuring that the area is energy-efficient. 

Symptoms of a Basement Waterproofing Problem:

  • Wet or damp basement floor
  • Leaking or damp basement walls
  • Pooling or standing water
  • Crystaline deposit on concrete surfaces
  • Musty odors
  • Condensation
  • Sump pump issues
  • Leaky basement windows

We offer proven-effective drainage systems that work in tangent with our sump pumps to remove any water and safely deposit it out of the house, away from your foundations. Our TripleSafe sump pump has a primary pump, a secondary pump, and a third, battery-operated backup pump. This system will ensure that even if the power goes out, your waterproofing system will remain functional and your basement will stay dry. 

Crawl Space and Mold Damage Repair in Buffalo, NY

Complete CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation and vapor in Buffalo, NY. barrier

As one of the areas of the home that is often neglected, crawl spaces can often fall into disrepair. Signs of major crawl space problems can include sagging floors, condensation, mold or mildew, wood rot, and foundation cracks. Similar to our basement waterproofing methods, installing a vapor barrier combined with our thermal insulation can seal out moisture, bugs, and debris while making your crawl space more energy-efficient. This will improve the quality of air in your crawl space and prevent harmful air, mold, and odors from seeping into your home or business.

Wood rot as a result of too much moisture in crawl spaces can not only produce a foul smell but can also significantly weaken wooden supports. Surface mold is only on the outside of the wood, but wood rot eats into the wood and weakens it.

Thankfully, even for homes that have mold damage, it is not always necessary to replace the whole wood beam. Frank's Basement Systems offers crawl space jack posts to reinforce rotting crawl space beams/posts and restore your floor back to its original, level position. Let us install our complete crawl space encapsulation and air purifying solutions to prevent moisture build-up, seal gaps, reduce drafts, and cut down on wasted heating and cooling efforts.

Job Stories From Buffalo, NY

With almost 40 years of experience, we knew just the solution - SmartJacks!

Basement Waterproofing in Lackawanna, NY

Homeowner Nehya, from Lackawanna, NY, called Frank's when she wanted to update her basement waterproofing system. She had the same sump pump and drain tile from when she moved into her home and wanted a more comprehensive, robust solution. She called the perfect place! Our crew went to Nehya's home and installed our patented WaterGuard drainage system, which, due to its inorganic structure, will never erode, clog, or grow mold. Not to mention, it's nearly visible once installed! This new drainage system led to a patented SuperSump Plus sump pump, which contains a powerful 1/3 horsepower cast-iron Zoeller pump, which can pump water at a rate of 2,600 gallons per hour.

Nehya can now enjoy her updated waterproofing system and a dry basement ALL the time!

Crawl Space Encapsulation in Cheektowaga, NY

Homeowner Jeffrey, from Cheektowaga, NY, called in requesting that we encapsulate his 3' crawl space. He was tired of having a non-usable space filled with dirt and gravel that could easily gather moisture, humidity, mice, and water - he wanted his crawl space back!

Good thing he called the experts at Frank's! With almost 40 years of crawl space encapsulating experience, we went to work on Jeffrey's by installing our patented CleanSpace crawl space system.

First, we installed our patented SilverGlo Wall Insulation Panels. These panels are composed of tiny graphite particles, which reflect heat and lower the material's conductivity. Since it contains a radiant barrier, it also reflects heat back into your crawl space for ultimate energy savings.

Next, we lined the floors with our patented TerraBlock floor insulated panels and drainage matting. With 3/4" foam paneling, TerraBlock is comprised of a puncture-resistant foam material, making it comfortable to move around and act as a padded barrier. With insulation and moisture protection, how much better can it get? Under our TerraBlock padding is drainage matting, which channels any ground water seepage directly to the basement's drainage system.

Lastly, we installed our CleanSpace Vapor Barrier. This durable, white barrier prevents any water vapor from coming into the crawl space. Because of this, the crawl space will remain dry year round.

Jeffrey can now enjoy his new crawl space system and his extended space!

Karen, a homeowner from Cheektowaga, NY, came over to our booth at the Buffalo Home Show and let us know about her basement issues.

This new drainage system led to a new SuperSump Plus system, which will remove up to 2,600 gallons of water per hour from Karen's basement!

Lastly, to combat the musty odor smell we intalled panels of our patented BrightWall Wall Panels, which act as a vapor barrier to prevent water vapor, moisture, humidity, and odors from filling the basement. They are also stain-resistant, maintenance-free, and do an effective job at brightening the look and feel of an unfinished basement.

Bowing Wall Solved in Buffalo, NY

Jan and Christine had a partially finished basement with cracks in the walls. These cracks were a sign of a larger problem: a shifting wall. They decided it was time to act now before the damage became worse. They called Frank's for a free estimate on their structural concerns.

Mike inspected their basement and recommended 6 Power Braces be installed along the shifting wall. The braces would serve to support the wall and actually straighten it over time. 

In addition to the Power Braces, 6 cracks in the walls needed to be fixed prior to the basement being finished. FlexiSpan was used on all six to permanently fix the cracks and prevent water from leaking through them. As an extra measure, a full perimeter interior drainage system was also installed to protect against water and flooding.

With these repairs finished, Jan and Christine can fully finish their basement with the confidence their wall is supported and water won't ruin their work.

Saved From The Bulldozer

Allen heard the words no homeowner wants to hear: your house is being condemned for structural failure. The foundation of his Buffalo home was no longer considered strong enough to support the weight of the home. After receiving this news, he decided to call Frank's Basement Systems in the hopes his home could be saved.

Rick Pilarski visited the home and performed his inspection. He found the walls leaning in and makeshift supports in the crawl space made out of cinder blocks and pieces of lumber. 

The answer to Allen's woes were helical piers. These piers were drilled down into the ground on the interior and exterior of the home. Brackets were installed to the footer of Allen's foundation and attached to the piers. The piers would now be taking the weight of the house instead of the foundation.

Thanks to the 23 long days of work by the Frank's team, Allen was able to keep his home and feel safe about its structure.

No More Flooding!

Over the years, Yvette had experienced repeat flooding in her basement. It typically happened when the drains at the street backed up and water typically reached ankle depth. Despite an unusually dry summer, she noticed her basement continued to flood. She needed a permanent solution to her problem before permanent damage was done. She decided enough was enough and called Frank's for a free, no obligation estimate.

Rick Pilarski performed his inspection of Yvette's basement and decided a 4 step solution was just what she needed.

The first step was install our patented WaterGuard drainage system around the entire 104 ft. perimeter of the basement. WaterGuard is specifically designed not become blocked with foreign matter. To ensure the system is flowing properly, inspection points were installed every few feet. 

The second step was to install BrightWall paneling on all the basement walls to trap water before it enters the basement. The patented BrightWall panels prohibit mold and mildew growth and clean with a wet rag. The panels trap the water and force it down into the WaterGuard system. 

The next step was the installation of our patented TripleSafe system including a 1/3 horse power primary pump, a 1/2 horse power back up pump, and a battery backup pump. The WaterGuard system runs into the TripleSafe system to be pumped up and out of the basement.  

The final step was to remove the water from the air with a patented SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier. Dry basement air is critical to the health of everyone in the home, and the SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier removes moisture from the air more efficiently than any other dehumidifier on the market. 

Now Yvette never has to worry about her basement flooding again! Call us today to schedule your free, no obligation estimate!

Rebuilding After A Car Hit Buffalo, NY

As if a Buffalo winter doesn't present its own challenges, a car struck the corner of Daniel's house in the middle of January and caused serious structural damage. He contacted his insurance to file a claim for the broken wall, window, and floor joist. Once the paperwork had been taken care of, Daniel called Frank's Basement Systems for a free, no obligation estimate.

Mike Ciocca performed his inspection and designed a plan to return Daniel's home back to normal. His plan included rebuilding the broken wall from the footer up, installing support posts across the basement, and installing interior drainage. 

Because of the extent of the damage to the wall, the concrete floor had to be broken so the footer could be replaced. While the floor was open, 49 feet of interior drainage was placed around the perimeter of the basement and 2 floor drains. 

To help support the weight of the house, our crew installed a total of 7 support posts across the basement. These posts are installed into the concrete floor and will help take the weight of the house.

The cabinets and paneling were replaced and the basement looked better than it did before!

No matter the cause, Frank's Basement Systems will complete a free, no obligation estimate for all your basement concerns!

Wall Replacement Buffalo, NY

Alma had already had one of her foundation walls replaced in the past. Now it was time to have another one done. It had begun to fall inward and was only going to get worse. She called Frank's Basement Systems to come take a look.

Upon inspection, Rick agreed the only permanent solution for Alma was to have the entire wall replaced. The mortar had broken loose between the second and third layers of blocks causing the wall to buckle and fall inward.

The first step to a new wall is to remove the existing one. Our team placed jacks to support the weight of the house and began digging outside. Once the crew had dug down to the footer, they carefully took the wall down and removed all the old blocks. The wall was then rebuilt up to where the old wall had been. 

As an extra layer of protection, a waterproof membrane and dimple board were attached to protect the new wall.  

After seeing the finished work, Alma will be calling Frank's when it is time to replace the last wall!

BrightWall and Basement Waterproofing in Buffalo, NY

Francis bought her home knowing it had a history of the basement flooding. While she had never seen it flood, she new there was a large amount of moisture in her basement at any given time. She decided to get a few quotes on what it would take to have a dry basement once and for all. One contractor told her they couldn't do the work she needed, but Frank's Basement Systems could.

She met with Ray Smith who recommended a multi part solution: drainage, wall panels, sump pump, and dehumidifier. 

The first step in her solution was to hang our patented BrightWall panels on all of her walls. BrightWall traps moisture coming through the wall and forces it down to the floor. More than that, it brightens your whole space and cleans with a wet rag. It will also never grow mold!

The second step was to install our patented WaterGuard drainage system around the entire basement. WaterGuard and BrightWall work together to keep water from entering your basement. The water trapped by the BrightWall flows down to the WaterGuard system and into step 3: the UltraSump sump pump.

The UltraSump system will pump any water coming from the WaterGuard system or from the floor (i.e. hot water tank leak) up and out of the basement.

The last step in Francis' solution was a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier. The SaniDry Sedona will remove 100 pints of water per day while using the same energy as a dehumidifier that only removes 40 pints per day.

No matter how water tries to come in, Francis is ready with her four part comprehensive solution from Frank's Basement Systems.

Basement Waterproofing, Buffalo NY

Regina decided to take down the paneling from the walls of her basement that had been there since she bought the house. They were peeling and sagging, so it seemed like the right time to finally tear them down and replace them with something nicer. Much to her surpise, the unsightly paneling was not her only problem. Years of moisture seeping through the walls had caused the blocks to crack, crumble, and shift. The sagging paneling was only a symptom of a much larger problem.

After checking local contractor reviews online, Regina decided to give Frank's a call for a free, no obligation estimate. Upon intitial inspection, Frank found more cracks than Regina initially thought. He recommended WaterGuard drainage around the perimeter of the basement, a TripleSafe Sump Pump System, and to repair the cracks in the walls.

After one day of digging, removing old clay drain pipes, and installation of our patented WaterGuard waterproofing system and TripleSafe sump pump system, Regina was well on her way to having a dry, usable basement.

Once all the concrete had hardened completely, Regina's walls were fixed and a new utility sink was installed by our plumbing division, Mr. Plumber. She could finally begin to use and enjoy her basement.

Water in the basement
Project Location: Buffalo, NY
Hello - I am looking for someone to perform repairs to our foundation. It isn't in too bad of shape, but some of the old surfacing is coming off, and there are cracks that need repointing. I would like to have the surface prepped to the point where I can apply a new gray-tinted Drylok or other equivalent coating myself, though I would entertain estimates for that work as well. We also have a small concrete front stoop that needs resurfacing. Again, if you would like to offer an estimate to paint it to match the foundation (including proper surface grip), I would consider it, though I will most likely end up doing that myself. We just had new gutters put on the house, so we are looking to move on this asap. Thanks! Best, David

Basement is a dirt crawl space. House is sagging in middle and we want it leveled, or as close to level as we can get it. My daughter is pregnant and living in the hose. There is a lot we want to do in the next 12 weeks and everything depends on getting this done first. We also would like the crawl space looked. The sump pump is down there. We also want to have the windows looked at.
