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 Lancaster, NY
Basement Waterproofing in Lancaster, NY

When homeowner Mike called in about his wet basement in Lancaster, NY, we knew he called the right place! With almost 40 years of experience in basement waterproofing, our crew of experts first replaced Mike's old sump pump with our highly effective SuperSump Plus pump, which removes about 2,240 gallons of water from the basement per hour. In addition, we installed a full perimeter drainage system with our patented WaterGuard drainage system. Among all of the benefits our patented drainage system offers, the best is that it is nearly invisible once installed. This system will never clog and can be checked with annual maintenance!

Basement Waterproofing in Lancaster, NY

Homeowner Patrick, from Lancaster, NY, called in when water kept seeping into his basement whenever it rained. Since his basement was connected directly to his crawl space, Patrick wanted both sections waterproofed and sealed from the outside world. We had the perfect solution!

In Patrick's basement, our crew installed an array of our patented products. First, we installed WaterGuard, our inorganic drainage system that will never clog and looks nearly invisible once installed. Our drainage system led directly to our SuperSump Plus system, which contains a powerful 1/3 horsepower cast-iron Zoeller pump, capable of discharging up to 2,240 gallons of water per hour from the basement. Lastly, we installed our patented BrightWall wall panels, which are semi-rigid, waterproof panels made of polystyrene that are washable, clean, and easily brighten a basement.

In Patrick's crawl space, we installed our CleanSpace system. With our patented SilverGlo graphite-infused expanded polystyrene insulation panels that will keep Patrick's crawl space insulated, and our durable, seven-layer CleanSpace liner made of high-strength polyurethane film, Patrick's crawl space will be clean, dry, and usable all year-round.

Homeowner Colleen from Lancaster, NY, called in when she didn't feel confident about the support beam of her crawl space. It was made out of wood, it was slightly cracked, it worried Colleen. Good thing she called Frank's!

Basement Waterproofing in Lancaster, NY

This homeowner in Lancaster, NY, called in because they had a few large horizontal cracks that spanned the entire length of their basement wall that started leaking water. Our team came in and installed our patented WaterGuard along the entire length of the wall, as well as panels of our patented BrightWall to channel any water seepage straight into their drainage system.

Basement Waterproofing in Lancaster, NY

This homeowner in Lancaster, NY, met us at the Hamburg Home Show and let us know about the water leaking into their basement. Whenever it rained, they would get water seeping into the corner which would form small puddles - how annoying! Our crew came in and stalled our patented WaterGuard drainage system leading to a new SuperSump sump pump system, so this homeowner could have peace of mind with a dry basement.

Basement Waterproofing in Lancaster, NY

This homeowner in Lancaster, NY, noticed water seepage coming from their walls, but weren't sure where it was coming from. Needless to say, they no longer wanted water in their basement. This is when they called Frank's. Our crew came in and installed Xypex, a solution that crystallizes upon contact with water. The awesome part about Xypex is that it flexes, so if the crack continues to expand, the homeowner will still not have to worry about water seepage. This homeowner can now enjoy a dry basement!

Basement Waterproofing in Lancaster, NY

Homeowner Jayne from Lancaster, NY, called in because she got water seeping through the crevice where the floor and wall meet. Our crew went in and installed Xypex, a solution that crystallizes when it comes in contact with water. This solution also expands and hardens, getting deep into the crack where the source of the water comes from. Jayne will never have water seepage problems from this crevice again.

Crawl Space Moisture Solutions in Lancaster, NY

Candice's crawl space was dirty and wet. She wanted to have a clean, dry space and protect her home. She called Frank's Basement Systems for a free estimate on an encapsulation system. Adam inspected her home and designed a custom system to permanently seal out all moisture. 

The crawl space encapsulation system included a drainage system, vapor barrier, sump pump system, and dehumidifier. The new crawl space waterproofing system started with the installation of SmartPipe drainage around the entire crawl space to collect groundwater. CleanSpace vapor barrier was then installed across the walls of the crawlspace to seal out all moisture. A SuperSump Plus sump system was also installed to remove water from the basement. A final measure of protection was the SaniDry dehumidifier to remove moisture from the air and help prevent mold.


Sump Pump Installation in Lancaster, NY

Kathy had a working sump pump in her basement but still got water when it rained. She decided to call Frank's Basement Systems for a permanent solution. Ray visited her home and was able to determine that there was a second low spot in her basement requiring a second sump pump. 

A SuperSump Plus was the best option for Kathy. The 1/3 horsepower sump pump will provide the protection she needs and the TripleSafe liner gives the option to add additional pumps later.

After one day of work, Kathy no longer needed to be concerned about water in her basement during heavy rains.

Basement Waterproofing in Lancaster, NY

Jane was frustrated with the water in her basement and the cracks in the walls. She decided to call Frank's for a free, no obligation estimate on waterproofing her basement. 

Frank visited her home and designed a custom solution for her basement. The new system included WaterGuard interior drainage, Xypex crack repair, and TripleSafe sump pump system. 

The WaterGuard system is installed in the floor around the entire basement. It connects directly to the liner of the TripleSafe system where it is pumped out of the basement. The crack was repaired with the Xypex injection system to ensure water could never enter through the crack again.

Jane's basement was now permanently waterproofed! Call today to schedule a free estimate!

Water Seepage in Lancaster, NY

Karen had water leaking into her basement due to incorrectly routed downspouts. After seeing an advertisement for Frank's Basement Systems in ValPak magazine, she decided to call and schedule a free, no obligation estimate on a permanently dry basement.

Joe Johnson visited her home and inspected her basement. He recommended our patented WaterGuard drainage and TripleSafe sump pump system to get and keep her basement dry. 

Karen's permanent solution started with a full perimeter WaterGuard drainage system around her entire basement. WaterGuard is designed to not clog like traditional clay pipe and even has inspection ports to ensure no debris clog the system.

In addition to the WaterGuard system, a TripleSafe sump pump system was installed to expel any and all water up and out of the basement. With one primary pump and two back up pumps, Karen never has to worry about pump failure leading to basement flooding. 

Karen can now rest easy that her basement will be dry permanently thanks to the great work done by Frank's Basement Systems!
