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 East Aurora, NY
Basement Waterproofing in East Aurora, NY

Terry, a homeowner in East Aurora, NY, noticed water leaking through the bottom blocks of her cinderblock walls where the floor and wall met. Once our Service Manager, Chuck, went out to look at Terry's problem, he concluded that there was standing water on the opposite side of Terry's wall that needed to be released. Since Terry did not have a drainage system leading to her existing sump pump, the water was leaking through the wall with no place to go but her floor. Chuck had the perfect solution.

Our crew came in and installed our patented WaterGuard drainage system leading to a new SuperSump Plus sump pump system. Our sump pump is so powerful that its 1/3 horsepower cast-iron pump can discharge up to 2,240 gallons of water from the basement per hour. Also, due to WaterGuard's structure, Terry will never have to worry about the drainage system getting clogged.

Lastly, our crew installed our patented CleanSpace polyurethane film system over the bottom blocks of Terry's cinderblock walls. This will channel all future water seepage directly into the drainage system to be flushed out through the sump pump.

Terry can now have peace of mind with a full waterproofing system and a bone-dry basement for years to come!

Since this homeowner wanted their basement dry ALL the time, they decided to get their entire basement waterproofed by Frank's Basements.

Now, this homeowner can feel confident that water will never touch their basement again!

Structural Repair in East Aurora, NY

Ryan, a homeowner in East Aurora, NY, called in because he didn't like the support system in his home. He noted that his home is very old, and the work that previous owners had done is simply outdated (crank support poles are holding up his house!). The floor was cracked and warped and he wanted to put something in place that he could have confidence in for years to come. This is when he called Frank's.

 

Our crew came in and installed 5 SmartJack support poles to give Ryan a new basement support system he can feel confident in.

Full Basement Waterproofing and Structural Repair in East Aurora, NY.

Laura, a homeowner in East Aurora, NY, faced a multifaceted challenge concerning her home. Her basement was prone to water intrusion, her crawl space was in disrepair, and her foundation was showing signs of structural issues. These issues not only affected her living space but also raised concerns about the long-term integrity of her home. Determined to address these complex problems comprehensively, Laura decided to call Frank's Basement Systems.  On the scheduled day, a team of experienced professionals from Frank's Basement Systems arrived at Laura's residence to inspect her basement, crawl space, and foundation. They meticulously examined each area, noting the extent of water intrusion, structural concerns, and the condition of the crawl space.

For basement waterproofing, to create a reliable drainage system and manage moisture effectively, the team proposed the installation of 161 feet of perforated pipe for interior drainage. This drainage system would be strategically placed within the basement to collect and channel any water to the appropriate outlets, preventing pooling and potential damage.

To ensure efficient water removal, they suggested the installation of 1 SuperSump Plus, a high-capacity sump pump system equipped with a powerful pump and a battery backup. This system would ensure that the basement remained dry even during power outages. To prevent water from collecting near the foundation and potentially infiltrating the basement, the team recommended the installation of 1 RainChute. This system would help direct water away from the home's foundation. Addressing structural concerns, the team proposed the installation of 6 I-Beams. These steel support beams would reinforce and stabilize foundation walls, ensuring they remained solid and secure. For crawl space encapsulation, to create a clean and moisture-resistant barrier, the team suggested the installation of 161 feet of CleanSpace Wall System. CleanSpace is a durable and high-performance crawl space liner that not only prevents moisture intrusion but also creates a clean and bright environment. To complete the transformation, the team recommended a Stone/Concrete floor replacement to address any damaged or uneven flooring in the basement.

With the project complete, Laura's home was transformed comprehensively. Her basement was now effectively waterproofed, her crawl space was encapsulated and moisture-resistant, and the structural issues were addressed!

 

 

 

 

Basement Waterproofing in East Aurora, NY.

Michael had a fully finished basement, but when heavy rain and snow would come, water would seep in through his walls leaving Michael extra frustrated!

Michael called Frank's Basement Systems for a free inspection and estimate to see where the water was coming from. The first step was to open the floor and flood test the interior drainage system. Thankfully, the test was successful and the water was coming in through a very tiny crack in Michael's wall. The Frank's team applied Xypex solution to the cracks, added BrightWall, CoverBase, and cement floor - leaving Michael's basement fully safe from water and just as beautiful as it was before we even visited!

Crawl Space Support in East Aurora, NY

Veronica had some concerns about the supports in her crawl space. She called Frank's Basement Systems for help. Mike visited her East Aurora home and assessed the crawl space. With the assistance of a structural engineer, he determined one SmartJack support post would alleviate her concerns. 

SmartJack support posts are different from standard basement and crawl space supports because they are made of heavy duty galvanized steel and will never rust. They are also installed in your basement floor with their own concrete footer to ensure they never shift while still being able to be adjusted over time.

After one day, Veronica's concerns about her crawl space support were a thing of the past. 

 

Crawl Space Encapsulation in East Aurora, NY

Brian had just moved into his home and noticed very high humidity levels in the crawl space. He could feel the moisture on the walls and could see the damage the moisture was causing damage to the floor joists. Brian knew he had to do something to protect his home so he called Frank's to schedule a free, no obligation estimate on what needed to be done.

Joe Johnson visited Brian's home and inspected his basement and crawl space. Joe recommended a comprehensive solution composed of our patented crawl space encapsulation products.

SmartPipe and a SmartSump system were the first items to be installed. The combination of these two systems will allow for water to drain and be pumped out of the crawl space. SliverGlo insulation was installed on the walls of the crawl space. Not only will SilverGlo keep the outside air out and the inside air in, but it also helps to keep moisture from entering the space.

To permanently seal out the moisture, our heavy duty, antimicrobial plastic liner was installed around the entire crawl space. Our liner includes a mold-resistant additive so it will never grow mold or mildew. Combine that with a 25-year warranty against rips and tears and you have a lifetime of peace of mind!

 The final touch was the SaniDry dehumidifier to remove any excess moisture from the air. The SaniDry empties directly into the SuperSump so it never needs dumped.

Brian can now rest easy in his new home. Call us today to schedule your free, no obligation estimate!

Saving an Addition in East Aurora, NY

Eugene's home had an addition built on that was built on a hill and was under supported. The addition had begun to sink and cause cracking in the walls upstairs. Eugene decided to call Frank's Basement Systems to see if there was a way to save his addition from falling down the hill.

Frank Nati inspected Eugene's crawl space and confirmed the house was sinking. Initially he wanted to install helical piers to support the addition, but due to the slope of the hill it would be unsafe to bring in the equipment needed to install them. After discussion with a professional engineer, it was determined that masonry piers would be a better avenue to stabilize the structure. He also recommended SmartJack posts be installed to lift the floor back up to where it belongs. 

Bob Farnsworth and his crew went to work installing the 6 masonry piers around the outside walls of the addition. These piers were pushed 4 feet into the ground into stable soil and attached to the foundation of the addition. Then they installed the SmartJack posts on concrete bases in the crawl space. 

Eugene could now breathe a sigh of relief with his addition safely secured at the top of the hill and his floors level again. Call us today to schedule your free, no obligation estimate today!

Hi, We have about a 3,000 square foot house with a stone foundation. We just moved into the home in November. The masonry seems to be crumbling a lot in multiple areas. As we enter the heat of the summer, its also getting super humid down there despite 2 constant dehumidifiers. I was wondering if its a concern at all and if the masonry could be fixed and perhaps sealed to prevent future crumbling. We would also like glass block windows installed. Thanks, Greg
