When basements experience water damage, it is usually because there is a significant problem with the basement's waterproofing system, or it lacks one altogether. Some tell-tale signs of a wet basement are musty odors, condensation or dampness on the floors or walls, and pooling or standing water. Excess moisture can also lead to mold, mildew, and wood rot that can compromise the integrity of wooden structures and supports.

To fix and prevent a recurrence of this water damage, Frank's Basement Systems installs a quality drainage system and sump pump. These work in tandem to take any water that is in your basement and safely dispose of it outside the house and away from the foundations. Our TripleSafe sump pump is uniquely designed to be efficient and allow you to be worry-free in the event of a storm or power outage. 

Expert Crawl Space Encapsulation & Mold Damage Repairs

Crawl spaces often fall into disrepair because they are out of sight and, as a result, out of mind for many homeowners. Some crawl spaces are improperly constructed or are in poor condition when homeowners or business owners purchase the property. This is most often due to debris left over from the house, a buildup of water, or resulting mold and wood rot. What many homeowners don't know is that smaller problems in a crawl space can cause bigger problems for your foundation and the overall air quality of your home. An improperly sealed or unsealed crawl space allows for drafts, harmful vapor intrusion that reduces air quality, and a loss of home heating/cooling energy.

Signs of a problem with your crawl space:

  • Sagging floors
  • Condensation
  • Mold
  • Wood rot
  • Foundation cracks
  • Drafts
  • High energy bills
  • Signs of pests

Mold damage is a common but preventable occurrence in crawl spaces that can worsen over time, especially when surface mold turns to wood rot. Unlike surface mold, wood rot destroys the wood fibers and weakens them, along with any wooden support beams it touches in your crawl space. Frank's Basement Systems offers a wide variety of comprehensive solutions to crawl space failures, including crawl space jack posts to keep supports from sagging and, over time, restore sagging floors to their original, proper position. 

Dependable Foundation Repairs in Tonawanda, NY

Have you noticed uneven floors or bowing walls in your home or business? Are your windows and doors sticking, hard to open, or have non-functioning locks? The cause may be a damaged foundation. Foundation problems are most often caused by shifting, weakened soil that can't support the structure or was of low quality in the first place. Soil washout, shifting pressure, and excess moisture can all cause foundation walls to crack, tilt, and bow inward if they aren't reinforced. Frank's Basement Systems offers the discreet yet durable CarbonArmor® and ArmorLock®, a dynamic duo of foundation repair products that hold foundation walls in place with confidence. The straps are easily covered by a coat of paint and held in place with reliable heavy-duty steel brackets.

For bowing, and leaning walls, we can install  I-Beam wall braces to provide a permanent solution. Our foundation piers and jack posts can correct sagging, cracked, and sinking floors while providing necessary foundation support. 

Frank's Basement Systems is proud to serve the Tonawanda area and throughout Greater Buffalo. Call us today for a free estimate on basement waterproofing, crawl space encapsulation, residential and commercial foundation repair, air purifier installation, and professional plumbing services!

Job Stories From Tonawanda, NY
Basement Waterproofing in Tonawanda, NY.

Rob, a homeowner in Tonawanda, New York, had been dealing with persistent basement water issues and structural concerns for far too long. Every heavy rainfall or snowmelt seemed to lead to water infiltration, causing damage and creating a stressful environment. Determined to resolve these problems and protect his home, Rob reached out to Frank's Basement Systems for a comprehensive waterproofing and structural solution.

To effectively manage water intrusion, Frank's Basement Systems installed 137 feet of perforated pipe to create an interior drainage system. This system was strategically placed to capture and redirect water away from the basement, ensuring that moisture would no longer be a problem. To enhance the effectiveness of water removal, the team installed a SuperSump Plus system. The SuperSump Plus is a high-capacity sump pump designed to handle excess water and keep the basement dry. It features a reliable pump, a battery backup system for added protection during power outages, and an airtight lid to prevent moisture from re-entering the basement. To reinforce and support the sagging and uneven floors, the team installed 5 I-Beams. These heavy-duty steel beams were strategically placed to distribute weight and provide additional structural support, ensuring that the floors would remain level and stable. To improve the basement's aesthetics and protect against moisture, the team added 55 feet of BrightWall paneling. This clean and bright wall covering not only provided a finished look to the basement but also acted as a protective barrier against water damage and mold growth. To address the cracks in the basement walls and prevent further water intrusion, the team applied 4 coats of Xypex Crack Repair. Xypex is a high-performance waterproofing material designed to seal and repair cracks in concrete, ensuring that water would no longer penetrate the walls.

Rob's basement underwent a remarkable transformation. What was once a perpetually damp and structurally compromised space had evolved into a dry, stable, and inviting area. Rob no longer had to worry about the weather, structural issues, or the consequences of water damage.

Basement Waterproofing with Dehumidifier in Tonawanda, NY

Robert had water entering his Tonawanda basement during heavy rainstorms. He wanted a permanent fix and called Frank's Basement Systems. Adam designed a solution just for Robert's home and needs. 

Since only one wall was leaking at the current moment, 41 feet of WaterGuard was installed along the area of concern and connected to the existing sump pump. To dry out the air in the basement, a SaniDry Sedona self-draining dehumidifier. The SaniDry Sedona can remove up to 95 pints of water from the air per day.


Basement Waterproofing in Tonawanda, NY

Grace is frustrated by the constant dampness in her basement. She called Frank's Basement Systems for a free estimate on a permanent repair. Rick inspected the basement and designed a system to address her concerns. 

WaterGuard interior drainage was installed around the entire basement and CleanSpace vapor barrier was hung on all of the walls. These two will work together to prevent water from ever entering the basement again. A TripleSafe sump pump system will remove all water collected in the WaterGuard regardless of the amount or if the home has power. 

Block Basement Wall Repair in Tonawanda, NY

Jon's block walls were showing signs of movement. The blocks in a dozen different spots had shifted and were causing him some concern. He called Frank's Basement Systems for a free estimate.

Frank Nati inspected the areas of Jon's concerns and determined that CarbonArmor straps would be the best option. These super thin, super strong carbon fiber straps are adhered to the wall with epoxy and then are mounted to the rim joist above the area with the shifted blocks. 

Jon is now able to finish his basement knowing the blocks are not going to move and the drywall will cover the CarbonArmor straps.

The next component is the BrightWall paneling on all the walls to stop any moisture from permeating the walls. The last component was a SuperSump plus sump pump system with a battery back up sump pump to keep the basement dry even in a power outage.

Concrete Foundation in Tonawanda, NY

Courtney and Greg were in need of some serious help. Two of their basement walls were bowing severely and had large cracks. They decided to call Frank's Basement Systems for a free estimate.

Ray Smith visited their home and confirmed the walls were failing. While it felt dire, Ray had a solution. The Stabl-Lock wall repair system was the ideal solution for this home.

The first step for Stabl-Lock is to install PowerBraces along the failing walls. The top of the PowerBrace is attached to the floor joists and the bottom in installed in the basement floor. Rebar is then ran through the steel PowerBraces to tie them together.

Next, metal forms are put up and supported with lumber frames. Concrete is pumped into the forms within a few inches of the top. Once the concrete is set, the forms are removed to reveal beautiful new walls.

Courtney and Greg now had a stabilized home with no outside excavation and a week of work. Call today to schedule your estimate!

Crack Repair in Tonawanda, NY

Craig had a crack in his wall leaking water into his basement. He called Frank's Basement Systems for a free, no obligation estimate. 

Frank Nati inspected the crack and formulated a solution for him. Because of the nature of the crack, Xypex crystalline injection was the best repair method. 

To complete this repair, the floor was opened to test the existing drainage. Once the drainage passed a flood test, the crack was chipped out slightly to ensure a flawless application. After the Xypex was applied, a small cove was installed at the bottom of the crack where the floor was opened to allow for any water leaking through the crack  to reach the drainage. The repair was then covered with our BrightWall panels as an extra measure to stop moisture as well as hide the repair.

After one afternoon of work, Craig's wall crack was permanently repaired. Call today to schedule your free, no obligation estimate!

My research started as my husband and I have been tossing around the idea of insulating our crawl space area. Our house sits on a concrete slab with about a 4 foot or so crawl space between the slab and our first floor. Additionally, there is a smell that has been consistent since we moved in a few years ago that comes and goes. Curious what an estimate/inspection would find and what our best plan of action could be. Thanks!
