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 Lake View, NY
Crawl Space Repair in Lake View, NY

David P., a homeowner in Lake View, New York, noticed the floors in his home beginning to sag. After calling the crawl space experts at Frank's Basements, our Service Manager, Chuck, came out and inspected David's crawl space environment. Since David had wooden posts and cinderblocks as the primary support for his crawl space, Chuck recommended that our Foreman, Brian, install our steel carrier beams specifically designed for crawl spaces. Each beam can support up to 30,000lbs of weight.

Brian can now feel confident in his crawl space's new support system!

Crack Repair in Lake View, NY

Cheryl called Frank's when she noticed a crack under her window begin to leak water into her basement. Our Design Specialist, Christian, came out to Cheryl's home in Lake View, NY, and recommended she had this crack sealed with our Xypex flexible sealant. The main benefit of Xypex is that it hardens and crystallizes upon contact with water to stop the water seepage at its source.

Once our crew came in and applied this Xypex sealant, Cheryl's basement crack was sealed for good. Frank's Basement Systems gave Cheryl peace of mind since no water will be entering her basement anytime soon.

Crack Repair in Lake View, NY

Dawn, a homeowner in Lake View, NY, called when she noticed several cracks along her basement wall that began to leak water whenever it rained. Our crew came in and installed our Xypex crystalline solution. This flexible sealant hardens upon contact with water, seeping to the depths of the wall crack and cutting off the water at its source. Not to mention, it also expands! If the cracks in Dawn's wall were to widen further, our Xypex solution will not crack or break.

Homeowner John, from Lake View, NY, had an area of his basement where water was constantly coming through. Already having an existing sump pump, our experts installed a perimeter drainage system with our patented WaterGuard. This drainage system is one of a kind, as it's inorganic and will not clog. John can now enjoy a dry basement year round with his new drainage system.

Basement Waterproofing in Lake View, NY

Larry, a homeowner in Lake View, NY, experienced small water seepage issues from his neighbor that constantly ran their water hose. The water seeped into the ground and caused a vertical crack in Larry's basement to leak water and it's only gotten worse with time. The water pooled at the base of the wall and streamed into his floor drain. This is when he called Frank's.


Our crew went into Larry's basement and installed a new SuperSump Plus system and new interior drainage. Larry's neighbor can now run their water hose as much as they please and Larry can have peace of mind knowing it won't affect his basement.

Basement Waterproofing in Lake View, NY.

As a couple living in the beautiful town of Lake View, NY, Colleen and Donald were excited about making the most of their spacious basement. However, they soon realized that moisture issues were dampening their dreams of creating a functional and comfortable living space. Determined to transform their basement into a welcoming area, they decided to seek professional help.

A few days later, a Frank's crew arrived at Colleen and Donald's home. They carefully examined the basement, noting the presence of moisture and the potential for future water damage. The crew understood the couple's desire for a long-lasting solution and recommended the installation of Brightwall around the entire perimeter of their basement. It was explained that Brightwall was a durable, waterproof paneling system that would not only prevent moisture from entering the basement but also provide a clean and finished appearance. The panels would be securely attached to the foundation walls, creating a barrier that would redirect any water seepage into the basement's drainage system.

Throughout the installation, the technicians took great care to protect the rest of the basement and the couple's belongings, minimizing any disruption to their daily routine. Colleen and Donald were delighted with the team's professionalism and attention to detail.

Wet Basement Waterproofing in Lake View, NY

Denise was tired of water in her Lake View home's basement. She called Frank's Basement Systems for a free estimate on a basement drainage system. Christian inspected her basement and designed a system to solve all of Denise's basement problems.

The new basement system included a full perimeter WaterGuard drainage system to collect all water trying to enter the basement. The walls were covered with CleanSpace vapor barrier to stop moisture from entering through the walls and causing musty odors and high humidity. To remove the water collected by the WaterGuard system, a TripleSafe Sump Pump system was installed. Comprised of three pumps, the TripleSafe System is designed to keep basements protected even in the most severe conditions. As a final measure to reduce moisture in the basement, a Sanidry Sedona dehumidifier was installed to remove up to 95 pints of water from the air per day. 

With the new system in place, Denise no longer needs to worry about water or moisture in her basement again. 

Concrete Foundation Repair in Lakeview, NY

John had insulation on his concrete basement walls to keep the Lake Erie chill out of his home. He noticed water coming out from behind the insulation. He decided to call Frank's Basement Systems for a free estimate. 

Christian visited John's home and inspected the source of the water. He found a crack hiding behind the insulation. 

To repair the crack, the floor at the base of the crack was opened up to access interior drainage. Once it was confirmed the interior drainage was functioning, the FlexiSpan crack repair system was applied to the crack. The FlexiSpan system includes a foam strip over the crack to absorb any water coming through the crack, a polyurethane sealant over the foam to keep the water from entering the basement, and a flange to force the water into the drainage.

After one day of work, John's basement wall crack was permanently repaired.

Crack Repair in Lake View, NY

Dan had some cracks in the basement walls of his Lake View home. As a result, water was leaking into his basement and reaching depths up to 2 inches. Dan decided to call Frank's Basement Systems and schedule his free, no obligation estimate.

Upon inspection, our representative found a total of 10 cracks leaking water into the basement. Left alone, the water would slowly cause the cracks to become wider and eventually pose a serious structural concern. A plan was formulated to fix the cracks once and for all. 

Dan's repair plan comprised of 3 parts: creating a path for water coming through the cracks to reach the sump pump, sealing the cracks, and covering the cracks. 

The floor was opened to confirm the existing drain tile was adequately draining water. Without properly functioning drain tile, water will continue to collect on the basement floor. The cracks were then sealed inside and out to stop as much water from coming through as possible. BrightWall paneling was then installed over the cracks to ensure any water that made its way through the cracks was trapped and forced down to the drain tile. 

After a week of work, Dan finally had a permanent solution to both his wall and flooding problems. Call today to schedule your free estimate!
