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.

Frank's Basement Systems has decades of crawl space repair and crawl space encapsulation experience in Rochester and the surrounding areas. Our expert teams can identify and address any crawl space issues and prescribe the proper solution. We expertly install crawl space vapor barriers, energy-efficient dehumidifiers designed specifically for crawl space usage, thermal insulation, and support systems for structural damage. Whatever your crawl space needs, we have the answer!

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!

Our Crawl Space Repair Solutions Include:

  • Crawl Space Dehumidifiers
  • Thermal Insulation
  • Vapor Barriers
  • Full Crawl Space Encapsulations
  • Structural Support Systems
  • Sump Pump Installation, Replacement, and Repair

Job Stories From Rochester, NY
Basement Waterproofing in Rochester, NY

Carrie's crawl space had high humidity and a dirt floor. She knew this combination would lead to more crawl space concerns in the future. She called Frank's Basement Systems for an estimate on a crawl space encapsulation in her Rochester home.

Matt inspected her crawl space and designed a custom system for Carrie. This system included drainage matting and CleanSpace vapor barrier. Drainage matting prevents water from pooling in an area of crawl space. The CleanSpace vapor barrier will prevent moisture from entering the crawl space. Moisture in crawl spaces can lead to musty odors, mold, and rotten floor joists. 

In just one day, Carrie's crawl space was permanently protected against moisture.

Wet Basement Solutions in Rochester, NY

Virginia was tired of recurring water problems in her basement and called Frank's Basement Systems for a free estimate on basement repairs. Matt assessed her home. He designed a solution to address all of her concerns and create the space she wanted.

Virginia's basement waterproofing system included interior drainage and sump pump system. The TripleSafe sump pump system includes three pumps for total basement protection. The first pump is a 1/3 horsepower cast iron sump pump which can pump over 2,000 gallons of water per hour. The second pump is a 1/2 horsepower sump pump and can operate simultaneously with the primary pump or independently in the event of primary pump failure. The third pump is an UltraSump battery back up sump pump which will turn on with rising water levels and run even without power to the home. 

After two days of work, Virginia's Rochester home is permanently protected against water.

Sump Pump Installation in Rochester, NY

Erin's old sump pump just wasn't cutting it anymore and needed to be replaced. She thought it was a good time to upgrade her system and called Frank's Basement Systems for an estimate. Matt inspected her basement and asked her about her goals and concerns. They decided together that a TripleSafe sump pump system was the best option for her home.  

The TripleSafe has a powerful Zoeller ⅓ horsepower sump pump set at the lowest level, a second, more powerful Zoeller ½ horsepower pump set a bit higher in the liner in case of high water volume or primary pump failure, and an UltraSump battery backup sump pump, set at the highest level, will pump 11,500 gallons in case of a power outage or double pump failure on a single charge.

After one day, Erin had an entirely new sump pump system that will provide protection in all circumstances.

Sump Pump Installation in Rochester, NY

Rhonda wasn't happy with her current sump pump's performance. She called Frank's Basement Systems for a free estimate on a new system. 


Mike Kelly visited her home and recommended a TripleSafe sump pump system. The TripleSafe system has three pumps for more protection than any other sump pump system on the market. The system includes a primary 1/3 horsepower pump, secondary 1/2 horsepower pump in case of primary pump failure, and a battery backup pump in case of primary and secondary pump failure or power loss.


The TripleSafe also comes equipped with an airtight lid and WaterWatch alarm to alert you in the event of a basement flood. 


Rhonda couldn't be happier with her new TripleSafe sump pump system and the additional protection for her basement.

Waterproof Basement in Rochester, NY

Jolene was frustrated with the water in the basement of her Rochester home. After removing the drywall in her basement, she noticed water in two corners and water marks on the walls. She decided to call Frank's Basement Systems for a permanent solution. 

Ray Smith inspected her basement and determined a full perimeter WaterGuard system with SuperSump sump pump system was the best solution for her home. The WaterGuard system was installed around the entire basement at the base of the walls. This system will catch water from the walls, floor, and below ground and funnel it into the SuperSump system. The SuperSump will pump the water up and out of the basement. 

After the two day job was completed, Jolene no longer has water in her basement.

Basement Waterproofing in Rochester, NY

When Michael moved into his home 5 years ago, the basement had been painted before the final inspection and he couldn't see any issues. Now the basement is always wet despite an existing drainage system. He called Frank's Basement Systems for a free estimate on a new waterproofing system.


Russell visited Michael's home and determined a new WaterGuard interior drainage system and TripleSafe sump pump system were the best options for the basement. The WaterGuard was installed below the floor at the base of all the walls in the basement. It is designed to sit on the footer out of the mud. The TripleSafe sump pump system will remove the water from the basement no matter the volume and will continue to work in a power outage. 


With this new system in place, Michael no longer has to worry about water in his basement.

Crawl Space Waterproofing in Rochester, NY

Sheryl had struggled with water in her crawl space for a number of years. She callled Frank's Basement Systems for a free estimate.

Frank inspected Cheryl's crawl space and found that water was entering where her walls met the floor and also entering through the walls as well. 

To remedy both problems, Frank recommended WaterGuard interior drainage around the perimeter of the crawl space in combination with the CleanSpace wall system, These systems are designed to work together to make sure water never reached the basement again.

A TripleSafe sump pump system and SaniDry dehumidifier were also recommended to ensure all water and moisture were removed from the basement.
