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 Ransomville, NY
Basement Waterproofing in Ransomville, NY

Marilyn, a homeowner in Ransomville, NY, noticed moisture around the perimeter of her 1980s home. She called in looking for a waterproofing solution so that she never has to worry about water seepage or moisture ever again. Frank's had just the solution! We first installed our patented WaterGuard drainage system, which is a state-of-the-art drainage system that never clogs and looks nearly invisible once installed. Then we channeled that drainage to a new, powerful, patented SuperSump Plus sump pump, which can pump nearly 2,600 gallons of water out of the basement per hour. After the sump pump was installed, we got to work with our BrightWall inorganic wall panels, which channel any water seepage from the walls down to the drainage system. Since the wall panels are inorganic, they prevent any moisture from coming through the walls, making them water and mold-damage free! Lastly, to put the cherry on top we installed our award-winning SaniDry Sedona. This dehumidifier isn't your everyday dehumidifier - it moves air at a rate of 300 square feet per minute, ensuring the cleanest air for Marilyn's basement. It is also highly energy efficient, reducing electricity costs and staying silent as your air gets cleaner by the minute. Marilyn can feel confident in her new, dry basement.

Basement Waterproofing in Ransomville, NY

This homeowner in Ransomville, NY, called in because water started leaking from the area where the floor and wall meet, that was already repaired by a previous contractor. Frank's came in and installed a new drainage system around the affected area, and attached the new drainage to the homeowner's existing sump pump. They now have a waterproofed basement they can have confidence in.

Post Installation in Ransomville, NY

Wendy and April had some concerns about the foundation of their Ransomville home. They had noticed some of the doors and windows had started to not open and shut properly. They decided to call Frank's Basement Systems to provide a free estimate.


Dave Hennessy inspected the basement and found that the existing support posts were failing and allowing the carrier beam to sag, which in turn caused the doors and windows to no longer be square. The solution Dave provided was to replace the existing beams with heavy duty, permanent SmartJacks.


The installation included the pouring of a new concrete footer and a galvanized SmartJack installed in the footer and adjusted to the appropriate height. The new concrete footer will provide a solid base for the SmartJack for the next 25 years. The SmartJacks can be adjusted over time if needed.



Helical Pier Installation in Ransomville, NY

John and Barb had some concerns about the structure of their home. They had noticed some cracks in their foundation and wanted to get them checked out. The called Frank's Basement Systems for a free, no obligation estimate.

Mike Ciocca inspected the Ransomville home and confirmed John and Barb's concerns: their home was sinking and causing the foundation to crack. While it sounds scary, Mike had a fairly simple solution to permanently stop the house from sinking and stop the damage to the damage to the foundation. 

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.

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!
