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!

Crawl Space Encapsulation in Derby, NY

When Kurt from Derby, NY, saw a Frank's commercial about crawl space encapsulation, he knew he had to give us a call. Kurt's dirt crawl space under his home is close to a lake, so although he didn't have any moisture or water problems yet, he wanted to get ahead of any potential issues and get his crawl space encapsulated for good.

Our crew came in and established this crawl space system, complete with our SilverGlo insulated wall panels, our Terrablock insulated foam floor panels, and our durable CleanSpace liner. When these products combine together it makes for a comprehensive, energy efficient, long-lasting system. Kurt can now feel comfortable with his encapsulated crawl space from Frank's!

Basement Waterproofing in Derby, NY

David, a homeowner in Derby, NY, experienced water seeping through the crack where his basement wall met his basement floor. After a winter storm, water covered his floor. After already having work done by Frank's at a different location, he turned back to Frank's to solve the problem for good.


Our crew went in and installed a new interior drainage system leading to a Super Sump Plus sump pump system. After giving David new drainage, they put up BrightWall and installed a SaniDry Sedona, solving David's water seepage problems and preventing any moisture/dampness from occurring in his basement.

Her custom solution included 4 parts to banish water for good. The first part is the WaterGuard interior drainage system to allow water to flow under the floor instead of on the floor. The next part is the SuperSump Plus sump pump system to pump the water up and out of the basement. The third part is the SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier to remove all the moisture from the air. The final part is the CleanSpace wall system to prevent water from entering through the basement walls.

Crawl Space Encapsulation in Derby, NY

Earl had old insulation in his crawlspace falling down and letting moisture in. He had been noticing a musty odor in the spring and summer when he opened up his house. He called Frank's for a free, no obligation estimate on what needed to be done in his crawlspace. 

The solution to all of Earl's concerns included encapsulation and sump pump system. Drainage matting was installed across the floor of the crawl space. In addition, a SuperSump sump pump and UltraSump battery back up pump were installed. The drainage matting and sump pump system work together to remove water from the space. To keep moisture from ever entering the space, our patented heavy duty, anti-microbial CleanSpace liner was installed across the entire space.

To remove moisture from the air, a SaniDry self-draining dehumidifier was added to the space and connected directly to the sump pump system.

The musty smell is now gone and and the rest of the crawlspace is protected against moisture. 

Crack Repair in Derby, NY

Beverly had decided to sell her home. Before she listed it, she wanted to have some cracks in her basement fixed. She called Frank's Basement Systems for a free, no obligation estimate.

Mike Ciocca found a total of 5 cracks in Beverly's basement to be repaired. Due to the depth of the cracks he recommended they be fixed by epoxy injection. As an added layer of protection, our patented BrightWall panels were installed over each crack to ensure no water made it through the wall into the basement. In addition to their functionality, BrightWall panels cover up the repair to give a clean look to the space.

Beverly could now list her home with confidence that any potential buyer would be happy with the basement repairs.
