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 Lewiston, NY
Basement Waterproofing in Lewiston, NY

Homeowner Steve, from Lewiston, NY, called Frank's when the sump pump in his 40 year old home could not handle the amount of water that was flowing into it. His sump pump began to overflow and water would appear on his basement floor. Upon inspection, our Design Specialist determined Steve needed a much more powerful system to handle the amount of water that was flowing into his sump pump - he needed our patented TripleSafe sump pump system. Our TripleSafe sump pump is a highly efficient and reliable system that contains 3 major components:

1) Primary Pump: The primary pump is a 1/3 horsepower cast-iron Zoeller pump capable of removing up to 2,240 gallons of water per hour from the basement.

2) Secondary Pump: In case the primary pump fails or there is an excess flow of water to the point water flows past the primary pump's float, the backup pump, a 1/2 horsepower cast-iron Zoeller pump, will kick on. The backup pump is even more powerful as it can remove up to 3,900 gallons of water per hour from the basement.

3) Battery Backup: In the case of power outages, where both of the main pumps fail, our patented UltraSump battery backup system will kick on. The backup pump can remove up to 2,000 gallons of water per hour with a max capacity of 12,000 gallons.

Basement Waterproofing in Lewiston, NY

This homeowner in Lewiston, NY, called in because they noticed a vertical crack along their basement wall that leaked whenever it rained. Our crew came out and installed Xypex, a crystalline solution that crystallizes whenever it comes in contact with water. Furthermore, the solution expands all the way into the crack to prevent any water seepage in the future. This homeowner will never have to worry about water seepage from this crack again.

Basement Waterproofing in Lewiston, NY

This homeowner in Lewiston, NY, experienced water seepage in the corner of his basement that led to small puddles after a rain storm passed by. Since this homeowner already had a working sump pump, Frank's came in and installed partial drainage around the area the water leakage came from, then covered the effected walls in BrightWall. Any future water seepage will drip down into drainage system and out through the sump pump. This homeowner's basement is dry for good.

Fracture Repair in Lewiston, NY.

Cheryl was a homeowner in Lewiston, NY, who had been struggling with water leaks in her basement for some time. Every time it rained or there was a storm, she would find water seeping into the basement, causing damage and creating a damp and musty environment. So, she decided to call Frank's Basement Systems for help.

When Cheryl contacted Frank's Basement Systems, she was greeted by a friendly and knowledgeable customer service representative who scheduled an appointment for a free estimate. A team of experts arrived at her home on the agreed-upon date, and quickly got to work inspecting the basement.

The team discovered a fracture in the basement wall that was allowing water to seep through. They recommended using Xypex Crack Repair to fix the fracture and prevent further water damage. Xypex Crack Repair is a high-performance, non-toxic, and eco-friendly material that is designed to repair cracks and leaks in concrete structures.

The Frank's Basement Systems team quickly got to work, using Xypex Crack Repair to fix the fracture in the basement wall. They applied the material to the affected area, creating a waterproof barrier that would prevent water from seeping through.

When the job was complete, Cheryl was thrilled with the results. She was amazed at how quickly and efficiently the Frank's team had fixed the problem, and she was relieved that she would no longer have to deal with water leaks in her basement.

Crawl Space Encapsulation in Lewiston, NY.

Susan, a homeowner in Lewiston, NY, had been struggling with a damp and musty basement for years. She knew that the problem was likely caused by the crawl space, which was exposed and prone to moisture. So she decided to call Frank's Basement Systems to encapsulate the crawl space and make her basement a more livable and comfortable space.

When Susan contacted Frank's Basement Systems, she was pleased with the friendly and knowledgeable customer service. The representative scheduled an appointment for a free estimate, and a team of experts arrived at her home on the agreed-upon date.

The Frank's Basement Systems team quickly got to work, inspecting the crawl space and discussing the options for encapsulation with Susan. They recommended a variety of products, including Cleanspace Wall and Matting, Wrap Piers, SilverGlo, Terrablock, and Rim Joist Insulation.

Over the next few days, the team worked diligently to encapsulate the crawl space. They first installed Cleanspace Wall and Matting, a durable and waterproof material that would protect the crawl space from moisture and mold. Next, they installed Wrap Piers, which provided additional support to the foundation. Then, they installed SilverGlo insulation, which would keep the crawl space warm and reduce energy costs. Terrablock, a drainage system, was also installed to keep water away from the crawl space. Finally, the team installed Rim Joist Insulation to seal off any gaps and further prevent moisture from entering the space.

When the job was complete, Susan was thrilled with the results. The crawl space was now clean, dry, and free of mold and mildew. Her basement was also more comfortable and energy-efficient, as the encapsulation had reduced moisture and kept the space warmer.

Crawl Space Waterproofing in Lewiston, NY.

When Susan L. went down to her basement one morning, she noticed that water was leaking in from her crawlspace! Unsure what to do, Susan called Frank's Basement Systems for a free estimate and inspection. Frank Nati arrived for the inspection and knew right away that Susan's crawlspace needed to be fully waterproofed.

To ensure Susan's basement would remain leak free, Terra Block Crawl Space Floor Insulation was installed along the entire space to provide a thermal break between the earth and your basement. On top of the Terra Block Insulation, CleanSpace Drainage Matting was installed to provide insulation and to help distribute ground water along the floor to the perimeter drainage system.

For Susan's walls, SilverGlo insulation was installed onto three masonry perimeter walls to provide a long-lasting water-resistant barrier with superior insulation values and a foil radiant barrier to assist with energy retention. Next, a CleanSpace Encapsulation system was installed, to reduce the humidity of the space.

Susan can now rest assured knowing that her crawlspace will be water free!

Crawl Space Repair in Lewiston, NY

Trisha's dirt crawl space collected a lot of water during heavy rains. She was concerned about the long term impact on her home's foundation and called Frank's Basement Systems for a solution. Joe designed a custom solution to protect her crawl space.

Trisha's solution included interior drainage, sump pump system, and insulation. Waterproofing a crawl space involves two steps: SmartPipe and drainage matting. The dimpled drainage matting allows water to flow freely to the SmartPipe around the perimeter of the crawl space. 

Crawl Space Vapor Barrier Installation in Lewiston, NY

Ed and Elizabeth had a dirt crawl space in their home they were interested in waterproofing. They called Frank's Basement Systems for a free estimate.

Mike visited Ed and Elizabeth's home and inspected the crawl space. The moisture in the space had damaged the rim joist and sill plate. Mike recommended interior drainage and encapsulation.

The first component is installing SmartPipe drainage which is specially designed for crawl spaces. A dimpled drainage matting is then placed on the ground to allow water to flow toward the SmartPipe. The entire system is then encapsulated in CleanSpace vapor barrier to keep moisture and pests out permanently.

Ed and Elizabeth didn't have to worry about moisture damage to their home's supports thanks to Frank's Basement Systems!
