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 Amherst, NY
Concrete Foundation Repair in East Amherst, NY

Shawn had three leaking cracks and a worn out sump pump. He called Frank's Basement Systems for a permanent solution. 

Christian visited Shawn's home and inspected the whole basement. He confirmed Shawn should only be concerned with the cracks and sump pump replacement. The cracks were repaired with Xypex to permanently seal the cracks and stop water from coming through in the future. The old sump pump was replaced with a 1/3 horsepower Zoeller sump pump. Zoeller sump pumps are reliable and powerful, and can discharge 2,220 gallons of water per hour at an 8-foot head from your basement.

Thanks to these permanent solutions, Shawn's basement will stay dry all the time.

Foundation Repair and Waterproofing in East Amherst, NY

Tom had a broken sump pump and leaking walls in his basement. He called Frank's Basement Systems for a free estimate on waterproofing his basement.

Rick inspected Tom's home and determined the issues were much more than what they appeared. Tom's home had major foundation problems on two sides and required extensive repair.

The plan involved 14 helical piers, 6 PowerBraces, 6 I-Beam braces, 164 feet of WaterGuard interior drainage, and SuperSump Plus system with UltraSump battery back up sump pump. The helical piers will prevent the walls from sinking and the PowerBraces and I-beams will prevent further inward movement. The WaterGuard and sump pumps will work together to prevent water in the basement. 

Waterproofing in East Amherst, NY

Abidi had a wet basement that he had struggled with for years. He decided to call Frank's Basement Systems for a free, no obligation estimate. 

Ray Smith visited the house and had two concerns: the existing sump pump was not equipped to handle the amount of water in the basement and there was no drainage at all.

The solution included a new TripleSafe sump pump system and WaterGuard interior drainage. The WaterGuard will catch any and all water entering the basement and allow it to drain away from the floor. It will also drain the water into the TripleSafe system where the water can be pumped out of the basement and discharged into the storm sewer or yard.

After 3 days of work, Abidi's basement was dry and permanently waterproofed.

Water in the Crawl Space in East Amherst, NY

Dan had noticed water pooling in his crawl space when it rained. He was very concerned as he used his crawl space for storage of personal belongings. Frank's had done work for the previous owner of the home, so Dan decided to call for a free estimate to protect his belongings.

Sean Kelley visited Dan's home and inspected his crawl space. While there was a sump already installed, it was installed in the wrong location. There also was no drainage system, making the sump pump extremely ineffective. 

Sean recommended WaterGuard interior drainage be installed around the entire crawl space to catch water wherever it came from. In addition to new drainage, a SuperSump Plus sump pump was the recommendation to complete the system. This combination would ensure Dan would no longer have standing water in his basement.

To improve the overall environment of the crawl space, Sean also recommended SilverGlo wall insulation to keep the space warm and prevent water vapor from entering the crawl space through the walls. 

After all components were installed, Dan knew his belongings were safe from water and his crawl space will be warm and dry.

Egress Window Installation in East Amherst, NY

Carriann and Brian decided they wanted to finish their basement. Before they did, they wanted an egress window installed to not only make the space safer, but also make the newly finished basement count in the square footage of their home. The called Frank's Basement Systems for a free, no obligation estimate.

Mike Ciocca inspected their basement and confirmed where the window could be installed. After 3 days of work led by foreman Eric Knott, the couple had a brand new, easy open egress window with Rockwell window well and light yet strong cover. 

Carriann and Brian could now move forward with finishing their basement knowing their new space would be safe for their family.

My existing sump pump is working but old. The previous owners have a "sump buddy (water backup)" connected but that does not work. I would like to perhaps replace the old sump pump and sump Buddy with a new sump and battery back up. I don't want the sump to fail if we lose power. High winds yesterday prompted this contact.

Hi Frank. I just left a message with your answering service. This is so urgent: I'm buying a house and we couldn't do the inspection for weeks because of the winterization. So anyways I'm having the inspection done finally tomorrow at 4:45 and it happens to be my last chance to also walk away from the deal. So we think there's something major wrong with the soil and foundation. All of the patio and driveway is sinking and the basement might be leaking. I'm afraid my inspector might miss it or not know exactly the details and I won't have time to bring any specialists in after tomorrow. Is there ANYWAY please that you could meet us at the property tomorrow while we have access to provide me with an estimate please and tell me how bad you think it is? If I get stuck with the property I don't have unlimited resources and I'm afraid it might be too expensive to repair. Can you please come out and see it?

1974 home. Settled block foundation on east and south sides about 2-3" where they adjoin. Last 25' of east, last 8' of west and all south side have foundation at or below ground level (about 3 rows shorter than rest of house). Noted sill plate and studs rotted on west side - I assume east and south will be similar. Want to add appropriate rows of block and re-level walls

We are in the process of purchasing a house and stumbled upon a foundation issue the homeowner hid behind a large deck box. There is a vertical crack in a foundation wall that our inspector and the bank inspector missed. This house also had another previous crack repaired on another wall. We want to make sure that before we assume ownership of the house that we have the owner make repairs and that the house isn't more of an issue than it's worth, or in other words, that the foundation issues ARE repairable! We'd love to own this home IF repairs can be made.
