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 Elma, NY
Basement Waterproofing in Elma, NY.

When Amanda, a homeowner from Elma, NY, noticed water seepage in her basement during heavy rains, she knew she had to take proactive measures to create a dry and protected environment. Seeking a reliable solution, Amanda reached out to Frank's Basement Systems. Upon receiving Amanda's call, the team at Frank's Basement Systems promptly scheduled a basement evaluation to assess the situation. Arriving at Amanda's home, the experts inspected the basement and confirmed the presence of water seepage.

With a clear understanding of Amanda's concerns and the basement's condition, the professionals at Frank's Basement Systems recommended a comprehensive waterproofing solution. To address the water seepage issue, they proposed installing 14 feet of Perforated Pipe for interior drainage. This system would effectively collect and channel water away from the basement, preventing it from pooling and causing dampness.

Amanda was delighted with the final results. The recurring water seepage issue was now resolved, and she felt confident that her basement was well-protected against future water intrusions.

When Alex, a homeowner from Elma, NY, noticed water seepage in his basement during heavy rains, he knew he had to take proactive measures to create a dry and protected environment. Seeking a reliable solution, Alex reached out to Frank's Basement Systems.  Upon receiving Alex's call, the team at Frank's Basement Systems promptly scheduled a basement evaluation to assess the situation. Arriving at Alex's home, the experts inspected the basement and noted the presence of water seepage.

With a clear understanding of Alex's concerns and the basement's condition, the professionals at Frank's Basement Systems recommended a comprehensive waterproofing solution. To address the water seepage issue, they proposed installing 12 feet of Perforated Pipe for interior drainage. This system would effectively collect and channel water away from the basement, preventing it from pooling and causing dampness. To provide reliable water removal, they proposed installing 1 SuperSump Plus, a high-capacity sump pump system. This powerful sump pump would efficiently remove any water collected by the Perforated Pipe, ensuring a dry basement even during heavy rainfall. Additionally, to discharge the water away from the foundation, they proposed installing 20 feet of discharge line for the sump pump. This discharge line would redirect the water to a safe location, preventing it from re-entering the basement.

Alex was delighted with the final results. The recurring water seepage issue was now resolved, and he felt confident that his basement was well-protected against future water intrusions.

Susan faced a concerning issue with the foundation of her home. Filled with worry for her family's safety and the potential damage to her property, she decided to take proactive measures. Seeking a reliable solution, she placed a call to Frank's Basement Systems.

Wall Crack Repair in Elma, NY

Jim had cracks in his poured concrete basement walls that were leaking water. The water was damaging the insulation on the walls. Jim knew he needed it fixed fast so he called Frank's Basement Systems. 

Mike visited Jim's home and inspected the crack. Since the two ways the crack could be repaired would be a Xypex injection or FlexiSpan repair system.

Since the crack was not actively leaking on installation day, Jamie was able to use the FlexiSpan system to repair the crack. The FlexiSpan system consists of a thin strip of foam covered by a waterproof sealant and a small drainage cove at the base of the wall.

The crack is now permanently sealed and will no longer leak. 

Egress Window in Elma, NY

Andrew had already finished a living space and wanted to bring everything up to code, which meant he had to have an egress window installed. After talking to a few friends about their recommendations, he decided to call Frank's Basement Systems for a free, no obligation estimate.

Frank Nati visited Andrew's home and confirmed an egress window would be installed with minimal disruption to the already finished space. 

While it can be scary having someone cut a hole in your foundation to put a window in, Eric and his crew are always very careful to not damage anything. After a few days of work, Andrew had a crank out window with Rockwell window well and cover. In the event of an emergency, the window can be opened quickly, and the combination of the steps on the window well and lightweight cover make an escape easy for everyone, including children. 

In addition to being safer, Andrew's basement living space is now up to building code and can be included in the square footage of the house.

Repair a Leaking Wall Crack in Elma, NY

Don had insulation on his basement walls in the hopes of warming up his basement. Unfortunately, his basement wall cracked and let water in. Now that his insulation was ruined, he decided it was time to look into having the crack repaired. Don called Frank's Basement Systems for a free, no obligation estimate.

Joe Johnson visited Don's home to inspect the crack. He recommended our patented FlexiSpan crack repair system as a permanent solution to the problem.

The 3 components of the FlexiSpan system ensure water never makes it through the wall again. A urethane sealant applied directly to the crack, a foam strip to absorb any water coming through, and another urethane sealant over the foam strip makes it impossible for even water vapor to get through.

With his wall crack triple-sealed, Don can rehang his insultation with the confidence in knowing it will stay clean and dry.
