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 Lockport, NY
Basement Waterproofing in Lockport, NY.

Erin P. had water entering her basement each time there was a heavy rain passing through Lockport! No matter what she tried, Erin could not locate the source of the leak, so she gave the experts at Frank's Basement Systems a call to fix the problem for good!

The major components of Erin's waterproofing consisted of the installation of a UltraSump Sump Pump System, an exterior drainage line connecting to the adjoining bubbler system, 23 PowerBrace Top Bridge Brackets to replace the original wall beams, Brightwall panels to prevent moisture, and a Sanidry Dehumidifier to fully protect against mold,

There is no doubt that Erin B. can now enjoy a dry, healthy basemen!

Foundation Wall Replacement in Lockport, NY.

Denise W. was dealing with a large crack in her basement wall, which was causing a multitude of issues for her, including one of her basement walls bowing inward!

After contacting Frank's Basement Systems for a free inspection and estimate, it was clear that Denise's bowing wall would need to be replaced. This was no issue for the Frank's team, though, as the foundation of Denise's basement was constructed out of cinderblocks. Talk about an adult sized puzzle!

To ensure that the remainder of Denise's basement was secure, a carrier beam, along with two SnartJack XT Supports were placed along the front walls of the space.

Now that Denise and the crew from Frank's were absolutely certain that Denise's home was fully structurally sound, it came to light that Denise's waterproofing system for her basement was not up to par! Folks, a bucket in the ground is not an efficient, nor effective Sump Pump!

The Frank's crew quickly installed a Basement System's SmartPump along with the proper drainage system into Denise's yard.

Denise can now rest assured knowing that her home is structurally sound, and her basement will remain water free!

Basement Waterproofing System in Lockport, NY

Josh had some concerns about possible structural issues with his home. He called Frank's Basement Systems for an assessment on his home. Joe inspected the basement and found signs of both water issues and and foundation problems. He designed a system to fix both sets of problems permanently. 

WaterGuard interior drainage was installed around the entire basement to collect water from inside and outside of the basement. BrightWall panels were installed on all the walls to trap water coming through the walls. A SuperSump Plus sump pump system was installed to remove all the water from the new waterproofing system. To address the structural issues, four SmartJacks were installed as additional support for the main beam of the house. 

Crawl Space Waterproofing in Lockport, NY

William wanted the original vapor barrier replaced in his Lockport home's crawl space. He called Frank's Basement Systems for a free estimate. Dave visited William's home and designed a solution for all of his concerns.

The new system started with drainage matting across the floor of the crawl space to allow water to flow and drain away. On top of the drainage matting, TerraBlock insulation matting was installed to seal out moisture and cold from the ground. To insulate the walls, SilverGlo insulation was installed up to the floor joists. A CleanSpace vapor barrier was installed over the TerraBlock and SilverGlo to seal out all moisture and create a clean, usable space under the house.

After one day of work, William's crawl space was fully encapsulated and waterproof.

Crawl Space Waterproofing in Lockport, NY

Diann had a crawl space in her Lockport home she wanted to have waterproofed. She called Frank's Basement Systems for a free estimate on a permanent solution. 

Adam visited her home and inspected the crawl space. He determined an encapsulation with drainage was the best solution for Diann. SmartPipe drainage was installed around the perimeter of the crawl space and tied into a TripleSafe sump pump system followed by drainage matting. These three components combined will prevent standing water and flooding in the crawl space. A CleanSpace vapor barrier encapsulates the entire system to seal out moisture. 

The new system will keep water and moisture out of Diann's crawl space permanently. 

Wall Crack Repair in Lockport, NY

Ryan had a few cracks in his basement wall that leaked during heavy rains. He decided to call and schedule a free estimate.  

Dave Hennessy visited Ryan's home and inspected the cracks. He determined they were not a result of a structural problem and could be fixed permanently in one day.

The repair included chipping out the cracks and applying the Xypex crack sealant. Xypex has a crystalline structure and fills every space in the crack to never let water through again. The repaired crack was then covered with BrightWall paneling to hide the repair.

After one day, all of Ryan's cracks were repaired permanently. Call Frank's Basement Systems today to schedule your free estimate.

Crawl Space Encapsulation in Lockport, NY

Susan's crawl space was damp and cold and she wanted a permanent fix. She called Frank's Basement Systems for a free estimate on crawl space encapsulation. 

Mike inspected her crawl space and determined the CleanSpace encapsulation system would be perfect for Susan's crawl space. The first part of the system is the dimpled drainage matting on the dirt floor to allow water to drain away. The second part of the system is the thick, antimicrobial, tear-resistant vapor barrier installed over the drainage matting and up to the floor joists. These two components work together to allow water to drain out of the crawl space and prevent moisture from reaching the wood structure.

After one day of installation, Susan no longer had to worry about water in her crawl space anymore.

Smart Jacks in Lockport, NY

Joe and Sylvia were concerned about the structure of their home. They decided to call Frank's Basement Systems for a free, no obligation estimate.

Mike Ciocca inspected their basement and confirmed the house was in need of structural repairs. Years of water in the basement had caused floor joists to rot and the main supports to fail in one area. Luckily for Joe and Sylvia, there was a non-invasive solution for them.

SmartJacks are used to support the house when the original ones have deteriorated to the point where they cannot. Not only do they hold the weight, but they also lift the floors back to their original position.

A total of 6 SmartJacks were installed in the basement by Bob and his crew. In addition to the SmartJacks, a 41' steel beam was also installed to support the failing floor joists.

After a few days of installation, Joe and Sylvia's house was fully supported and safe again.

Home built in the late 1880's with a small basement that has a dirt floor. Want to secure an inspection to ensure the main beams can continue to support the two story house and be suitable for a new furnace that is currently in the living room. Thank you!
Project Location: Lockport, NY
We live in California and just bought this house as a 2nd get away. The rear of the house where the kitchen is located sits about an 1" lower from the entrance to the kitchen from thecliving room. You can see how the rear settled from inside. I'd like to see if i could get an estimate and or a few ways of possibly correcting this issue. The house is sound and has a 1.9 radon reading. Out here in Cali we don't test for Radon. The official date of us taking the keys is 10-7-18. The house has some minor issues but the only thing concerning at this time is leveling. Thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing from you.
