Job Stories From Niagara County, NY
Dry Basement for the First Time Newfane, NY

Troy had an old basement with a skim coat of cement over the dirt. There had always been water and mold in the basement ever since he owned the house. Troy decided he wanted to rid his basement of water and moisture once and for all, so he gave Frank's Basement Systems a call to schedule a free, no obligation estimate.

The first step to Troy's comprehensive solution was to place interior drainage around the perimeter of the basement. A trench was dug and drain tile was placed to allow any water on the floor to flow down beneath. A 1/3 horsepower SuperSump primary sump pump and a battery back up Ultra Sump were also installed to get the water up and out of the basement.

The next step was to hang CleanSpace and BrightWall on all the walls. Both of these products prevent moisture that seeps thought the walls from entering the basement. The moisture is trapped between the BrightWall or CleanSpace and is forced down into the drainage that was just installed.

The last step was to remove the moisture from the air. A SaniDry dehumidifier was installed and hooked directly into the sump pump system. Now no matter how water tries to get in, Troy is prepared with his comprehensive waterproofing system from Frank's Basement Systems.

Call today to schedule your free, no obligation estimate on your clean, dry, usable basement.

Wet Basement in Wilson, NY

Mike and Elaine were frustrated with their basement always being wet. They decided to call Frank's Basement Systems for a free, no obligation quote on waterproofing their basement.

Rick Pilarski visited their home in Wilson, NY and inspected the basement. Because the house had a stone foundation, he knew it was susceptible to leaks and water vapor seeping through the walls. He recommended 130 feet of interior drainage, a 1/3 horsepower sump pump, and 120 feet of CleanSpace liner on the walls. 

The interior drainage provides an outlet for any water in the basement. The CleanSpace heavy duty antimicrobial plastic liner traps water coming through the walls and forces it down into the drainage system. The sump pump is connected to the drainage system to allow the water to be efficiently pumped up and out of the basement.

Thanks to Rick's expert recommendations, Mike and Elaine don't have to stress about having a wet basement ever again! Call us today to schedule your free, no obligation estimate for your dry basement!

Damp Basement in Barker, NY

David had struggled with water seeping through the block foundation of his Barker home for 9 long years. He had a partially finished basement and wanted it to be dry all the time. He called Frank's Basement Systems for a free, no obligation estimate on stopping water from entering his basement.

Frank Nati inspected David's basement and designed a two-part approach to the problem. The first part involved trapping the water as it came through the walls. Our patented BrightWall paneling was installed across 146 feet of basement walls. The non-porous, antimicrobial panels prevent water from ever entering the basement and will never mold. The second part of the solution involved removing water from the air. A patented SaniDry dehumidifier was installed and hooked directly into the home's existing sump pump.

With his comprehensive solution from Frank's Basement Systems, David no longer has to worry about moisture entering his basement. Call today to schedule your free estimate!

Waterproofing a Crawl Space in Appleton, NY

Jeff had always had moisture in his crawl space. While he had an existing sump pump, it was directly in front of the access to the crawl space. He decided to call Frank's Basement Systems for a free, no obligation estimate on waterproofing his crawl space as well as moving his sump pump to make his crawl space more accessible. 

To begin his project, the crawl space was dug out including the existing sump system. 103 feet of interior drainage was installed around the perimeter of the space. A new sump pump liner was placed away from the entrance and a 1/3 horsepower Zoeller sump pump was installed. The drainage that was just installed was run directly to the sump pump liner so the water could be pumped up and out of the crawl space.

The next part of the project was to install our patented heavy duty, anti-microbial CleanSpace liner around the entire crawl space. This plastic liner will keep any water from entering the crawl space through the floor or walls. 

The final step was to install a patented SaniDry dehumidifier to remove all excess moisture from the air. The SaniDry is also connected to the sump pump so the dehumidifier never needs to be emptied.

Jeff could finally easily access his crawl space and didn't have to worry about moisture entering his home. Call us today to schedule your free, no obligation estimate on a clean and dry crawl space. 

200 Feet of Interior Drainage in Gasport, NY

Shawn wanted to permanently waterproof his basement so one day it could be fully finished. He called Frank's Basement Systems to schedule a free, no obligation estimate.

Frank Nati visited Shawn's home and inspected his basement. Frank recommended drainage around the entire perimeter of the basement as well as a new 1/2 horsepower sump pump. 

To install the interior drainage, the floor was broken out 1 inch deep and 1 inch wide along the walls of the basement. The old drainage was removed and new drainage was put in its place, including inspection ports in each corner to ensure there is no debris in the system. Weep holes were drilled at various points along the walls to allow water coming through the block walls to drain directly into the new drainage. The old sump pump was swapped out for a new 1/2 horsepower pump. The new drainage was tied into the new sump pump and the floor was closed up and the new system went to work immediately!

Shawn can now move forward with finishing his basement without fear of water damage.

WaterGuard in Youngstown, NY

Ronald's basement flooded during heavy rains. He had dealt with the problem for a while, but decided he wanted a permanent solution and called Frank's.

Sean Kelley visited Ronald's home and inspected his basement. Sean designed a custom solution to provide Ronald with a permanently dry basement. 

The first part of Ronald's solution was WaterGuard drainage to be installed around the entire basement. WaterGuard catches and traps water from both the walls and the floor. The WaterGuard was then tied into a new TripleSafe sump pump system. With a battery back up pump plus two other pumps, Ronald's basement will never flood again.

To finish his system, a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier was installed and tied into the TripleSafe system lid. The SaniDry Sedona removes up to 95 pints of water per day and never needs to be emptied. 

With his custom solution installed, Ronald never has to worry about his basement flooding again!

Fix to Sell in Ransomville, NY

Mike was thrilled he had found someone to buy his home. But there was one problem; the leaking crack in the basement. It was holding up the closing so it needed to be fixed fast. After some research on the internet, Mike called Frank's to schedule a free, no obligation estimate on repairing the crack.

Mike had already tried to fix the crack and was unsuccessful. Our crack technician Anthony was able to repair the crack with an epoxy injection. The crack was permanently fixed in an afternoon and both Mike and the new owners could rest easy that the water would not return.

Whether you just moved in, have been in your home for a while, or are looking to sell, Frank's Basement Systems has the solution for all your basement, foundation, and crawl space concerns. 

Wet and Musty Basement in Ransomville, NY

Sabrina had struggled for years with a constantly wet and musty smelling basement. Part of her basement had working drainage, but the older, stone portion did not. She decided to call Frank's for a free, no obligation estimate on finding a a solution to her basement problems.

Because she didn't have an existing sump pump, installing a SuperSump pump and UltraSump battery back up pump in Sabrina's basement was a priority. The existing drainage is ineffective without a way to pump the water out of the basement. 

In addition to the two sump pumps, WaterGuard interior drainage was installed in the stone portion of the basement. A total of 104 feet of WaterGuard was installed and connected directly to the new sump pump system.

To remove the moisture in the air and the musty odor, a SaniDry Upright was installed adnd connected to the SuperSump liner. The self-draining dehumidifier will work around the clock to dry out the air in Sabrina's basement.

After years of struggling, Sabrina could now finally use her basement without concerns of water or musty smells. Call us today to schedule your free estimate on your dry basement!

Water Pooling in Middleport, NY

Michelle had two spots in her basement where water pooled during heavy rains and snow melts. She couldn't find a source for the water, so she decided to call Frank's for a free estimate in the hopes of an answer. 

Our design specialist Mike Ciocca found a crack that was leaking water. In addition to fixing the crack, he recommended interior drainage and a dehumidifier. 

The production team made quick work of the crack by injecting it with epoxy to ensure water could never get through again. Interior drainage was added and tied into an existing sump pump. The last part of Michelle's solution was a SaniDry Upright dehumidifier to take the moisture out of the air.

Now Michelle doesn't have to worry about having water in her basement again!

Seepage in the Basement in Appleton, NY

Paul had water seeping into his basement where the floor and walls met. He called Frank's to schedule a free, no obligation estimate on a permanent solution.

Interior drainage was installed around the perimeter of the basement. The new drainage system will trap any water in the basement and direct it to the existing sump pump. As an extra measure, a battery back up pump was added to the system in the event of a power outage.

Paul now had a permanently dry basement he could enjoy!

Flooded Basement in Sanborn, NY

Emily and Brian had an older home with no interior drainage. As a result, their basement flooded regularly. After talking to some friends, they decided to give Frank's Basement Systems a call for a free, no obligation estimate.

Upon inspection, it became clear the first priority was to install interior drainage. A total of 116 feet of interior drainage was installed around the entire basement. The drainage would direct the water away from the basement.

BrightWall anti-microbial panels were installed on the walls to trap water as it entered through the walls and directed it into the new drainage system.

Emily and Brian now had a solution to their basement flooding concerns.

Seeping Water in Sanborn, NY

Fran and Ray had a sump pump in their basement. Unfortunately, they were still experiencing water seeping in where the wall and floor meet. They decided to call Frank's Basement Systems for a free estimate on a solution. 

Their existing sump pump was not enough to keep up with the water. Two 1/2 horsepower sump pump was installed to replace the existing pump. If one pump becomes overwhelmed, the other pump will turn on to help

Interior drainage was installed in the floor along the base of all the walls. This will direct the water to the sump pumps.

Fran and Ray could now be sure their basement would no longer flood, even during storms. 

Flooding in a Walkout Basement: Burt, NY

Danielle's basement was a walkout with water problems. She had been told she can't have a sump pump because she is below the sewer level. Her sister just had work done by Frank's and was thrilled. Danielle decided enough was enough and called to schedule her free estimate.

Frank Nati inspected her basement and agreed she couldn't have a sump pump. Although, not all hope was lost. He recommended a full perimeter interior drainage system. While these systems work best with a sump pump system like our patented TripleSafe system, this was the best option for Danielle. The drainage system would allow the water to drain down below her house instead of sitting on the floor.

After a few days of digging and installation, Danielle had 96 feet of interior drainage ready for any amount of water. She was ecstatic to finally have an answer to her years of flooding. 

Musty Smell in Burt, NY

Jim had a dirt crawl space and small basement in his home. While he didn't struggle with moisture like most homeowners with dirt crawl spaces, he did have a stale, musty odor after the spring thaw. He decided to call Frank's Basement Systems for a free estimate on eliminating the source.

Because there was no standing water in either the basement or crawl space, a full waterproofing system was not necessary at this point. To control the musty smell, our patented self-draining SaniDry dehumidifier was installed. The SaniDry removes about 100 pints of water from the air per day. Removing the moisture from the air will also take care of the staleness and mustiness in the air. 

Jim no longer had to put up with the nasty smell from his crawl space every year.

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.

A total of 6 helical piers were installed in the sinking corner of the house. The piers were attached the footer of the house to lift the house and redistribute the weight to stable soil. 

John and Barb now no longer had to worry about their house sinking and causing damage to their of foundation.

Basement Wall Repair in Tonawanda, NY

Greg's home had water in the basement and two bowing foundation walls. He called Frank's Basement Systems for a free estimate on both issues. 

Joe Johnson visited Greg's home and inspected the basement. He confirmed what Greg was seeing and designed a custom solution.

Larry and his experienced crew started by opening the floor around the perimeter of the basement. The 7 PowerBraces were installed along the failing wall and attached to the floor joists. PowerBraces can be tightened over time to bring the wall vertical again.

The CarbonArmor bands were installed in the most damaged area to provide extra reinforcement. The thin carbon fiber bands are a great, non-invasive solution for bowing basement walls.

With all the wall work completed, it was time to move on to the waterproofing portion of Greg's project. WaterGuard interior drainage was installed where water most often pooled. A TripleSafe sump pump system was installed at the end of the WaterGuard to pump all water up and out of the basement. The three pumps in the TripleSafe system ensure the system won't fail or be overwhelmed. 

Greg's home was now structurally sound and waterproof. Call today to schedule your estimate.

Crawl Space and Basement Waterproofing in Wilson, NY

Sue constantly had water in the basement and crawl space of her Wilson home. Water consistently came up through the floor in both areas. She decided to call Frank's Basement Systems for a free, no obligation estimate. 

Dave visited her home and designed a custom solution for Sue. 

The first part of Sue's waterproofing system is the installation of a WaterGuard interior drainage system around the basement. WaterGuard interior drainage will catch water coming up from the ground, down the walls, and from the floor. It is specially designed to be easily cleaned and minimize clogs.

After the WaterGuard had been installed, SilverGlo insulation was installed in the crawl space and encapsulated with CleanSpace. The combination of SliverGlow insulation and the CleanSpace vapor barrier will keep the crawl space warm and dry which will in turn keep the whole house warmer and drier. The CleanSpace vapor barrier was also installed on the walls of the basement to seal out moisture. 

To round out Sue's new system, a SuperSump Plus sump pump system and a SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier. The SuperSump Plus system has a 1/2 horsepower sump pump and 1/4 horsepower battery back up sump pump. This system will get the water up and out of Sue's basement. The Sanidry Sedona will take moisture out of the air to keep her basement air clean and fresh.

Sue's new system will keep her whole basement and crawl space dry 100% of the time.

Sue's new system started with WaterGuard interior drainage being installed around the perimeter of the basement. WaterGuard, unlike most interior drainage systems, has inspection ports to all for easy cleaning and service of the system.

To finish the system, a SuperSump Plus sump pump system and SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier. The SuperSump Plus will pump out all the water from the WaterGuard system as well as from the self draining Sanidry.

Foundation Crack Repair in Niagara Falls, NY

Robert had noticed some water coming from behind the paneling in his basement. He took it down to find two cracks in his walls that were leaking constantly. He called Frank's Basement Systems for a free estimate.

Christian visited Robert's home and inspected the cracks. Because the cracks we're leaking, the only option for repair was a Xypex injection. The Xypex will expand and crystalize and prevent water from leaking through the crack again. 

After one day of work, Robert no longer had to worry about his paneling being ruined by leaking cracks.

Wall Crack Repair in Sanborn, NY

Robert had 5 cracks in his poured concrete walls. The water leaking through was damaging his insulation hanging on the walls. He decided to call Frank's Basement Systems for a free estimate.

Robert's repair plan was pretty straight forward and included our FlexiSpan repair system. Each crack would be exposed and cleaned of any insulation. An absorbent foam strip was place over the crack to stop any water coming through. A polyurethane sealant was placed over the foam strip and several inches on either side of the crack to ensure a good seal. A small drywell was installed in the floor directly below the crack to allow any water trapped in the foam to drain.

All 5 cracks were repaired in just one day! Robert no longer has to worry about water leaking through the cracks in the basement.
