This Niagara Falls home had no sump pump in the basement. Instead they had an old floor drain they used for the air conditioner condensation line. This was fine until a rainstorm led to water in the basement. A new SuperSump sump pump system will give a place for the condensation line to drain and protect against basement water.

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 Niagara Falls, NY
Sump Pump Installation in Niagara Falls, NY

Homeowner Susan, from Niagara Falls, NY, called Frank's when she noticed water leaking from her walls. As water began to form small puddles on her floor, she knew she needed a permanent solution.

Our crew came in and first, sealed the crack where water was flowing from. After that, we noticed Susan did not have a sump pump system to properly channel water out of her basement. We installed our patented and long-lasting SuperSump Plus sump pump system, which features a powerful 1/3 horsepower cast-iron Zoeller pump capable of removing up to 2,240 gallons of water per hour from the basement. Additionally, this system contains an air-tight lid with both a floor drain and an alarm system, so Susan will be immediately notified if the water rises above the pump's float.

Andy, a homeowner in Niagara Falls, NY, called in when he noticed water coming through the joint where the floor and wall meet. After removing drywall to get to the source of the water seepage, our experts determined that Andy had standing water on the other side of his basement walls. Because of this, we installed our patented WaterGuard drainage system leading to our powerful SuperSump sump pump system, which can effectively remove water from the basement at a rate of 2,240 gallons of water per hour. Andy can now have peace of mind with no more water touching his basement floor.

Homeowner Carly, from Niagara Falls, NY, noticed water leaking into her basement from her basement wall, up through her floor, and around her structural support posts. Our Design Specialist, Donnie, had just the solution.

We came in and installed a perimeter drainage system leading to our patented SuperSump Plus sump pump system. This SuperSump Plus system contains everything one could need for effective water removal:

  • A 1/3 horsepower cast-iron Zoeller pump, which can remove up to 2,600 gallons of water from the basement per hour
  • An air-tight sump lid, so debris, etc. don't fall into the sump pump,
  • A pump stand, to protect the pump against any possible damage due to mud, debris, etc.
  • An alarm system, so Carly knows when the water rises above the pump's float
  • A floor drain, which can also capture any water that makes its way onto her basement floor
  • A sturdy sump liner, which contains 100 3/8-inch inlet holes to capture ground water seepage, as well as 2 larger inlet holes for a drainage system
Foundation Repair and Basement Waterproofing in Niagara Falls, NY

This homeowner in Niagara Falls, NY, called Frank's when they were concerned about their basement walls. Their walls were bowing inwards, causing various cracks to form and leak water into their basement. Upon inspection, our team of experts found that their wall was bowing 3 inches! This wall didn't just need I-beams, it needed to be replaced.

 

After laying down some steel beams to support the house, our crew replaced this homeowner's wall, then installed an interior drainage system leading to our patented ProSump sump pump system. Since the other walls were bowing slightly, but not to the same degree as the one wall, our crew installed several i-beams along the walls. These i-beams can be tightened over time with annual maintenance to correct the walls into an upright position.

Basement Wall Crack in Niagara Falls, NY

This homeowner had an unfinished basement with a large foundation crack near the water line. This crack would allow the water to constantly leak onto the basement floor. Our team repaired this crack for the homeowner to keep the basement dry!

Fracture Repair in Niagara Falls, NY.

Kalia, a homeowner in Niagara Falls, NY, had recently discovered a concerning fracture in her basement wall. Worried about the potential implications for her home's structural integrity and the risk of water infiltration, she knew it was essential to address the issue promptly. On the scheduled day, a team of experienced professionals from Frank's Basement Systems arrived at Kalia's residence to inspect the basement wall. They carefully examined the fracture, assessing its size, location, and severity. 

After a thorough evaluation, the team presented Kalia with a solution tailored to address the specific needs of her basement wall. Recognizing the importance of both structural reinforcement and waterproofing, they recommended the removal of the existing drywall and the application of Xypex Crack Repair to address the fracture. Xypex Crack Repair is a specialized waterproofing solution designed to seal cracks in concrete and prevent water penetration. It not only addresses the immediate issue of water intrusion but also reinforces the structural integrity of the wall, reducing the risk of further damage. Kalia's home was now protected against water intrusion and potential structural issues. She felt relieved to know that the issue had been effectively addressed and that her basement wall was secure.

Basement Waterproofing in Niagara Falls, NY.

Joshua, a homeowner in Niagara Falls, NY, had been battling persistent water infiltration issues in his basement. Frustrated with the recurring problems and concerned about potential water damage, he decided it was time to take action. On the scheduled day, a team of experienced professionals from Frank's Basement Systems arrived at Joshua's residence to inspect his basement. They meticulously examined the areas prone to water infiltration, searching for potential entry points. To efficiently manage moisture and prevent water accumulation, the team proposed the installation of 95 feet of perforated pipe for interior drainage. This drainage system would be strategically placed within the basement to collect and channel any water to the appropriate outlets, preventing pooling and potential damage.

For efficient water removal and to ensure the basement stays dry, the team suggested the installation of 1 SuperSump Plus, a high-capacity sump pump system. This system is equipped with a powerful pump and a battery backup, ensuring that the basement remains dry even during power outages. To safely discharge the collected water away from the basement, the team recommended the installation of 10 feet of discharge line for the sump pump. This component would ensure that water was directed away from the foundation, reducing the risk of water infiltration. To provide a clean and finished appearance to the basement walls, while also preventing moisture infiltration, the team suggested the installation of 95 feet of BrightWall. BrightWall is a waterproof wall system that not only enhances the aesthetics of the basement but also acts as a vapor barrier, preventing moisture from entering.

Joshua's home was now protected against water damage, and his basement was transformed into a dry, comfortable, and usable space. He felt relieved to know that his basement was safeguarded, and the potential for water intrusion had been significantly minimized.
