Flooded basement in a Tonawanda home.

When basements experience problems with water damage, it is usually because there is a significant problem with the basement's waterproofing. Some of the major signs of a waterproofing problem are musty odors, condensation, wet or dampness on the floors or walls, and pooling or standing water. The way to fix water damage is to install a quality drainage system and sump pump. These work 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 and Mold Damage Repairs

As one of the less-thought of areas of the home, crawl spaces often fall into disrepair. This is most often due to debris left over from the house or a buildup of water or wood rot. What many homeowners don't know is that smaller problems in a crawl space can cause bigger problems for your foundations and the overall air quality of your home. To get you crawl space back to the way it should be, we offer a variety of products to keep your crawl space clean, dry and healthy. 

Signs of a crawl space problem

  • Sagging floors
  • Condensation
  • Mold
  • Wood rot
  • Foundation cracks

Mold damage is another thing that can harm a crawl space, especially when surface mold turns to wood rot. Unlike surface mold, wood rot destroys the wood fibers and weakens it. We offer crawl space jack posts to keep supports from sagging and, over time, bring sagging floors above the crawl space back to how they were originally supposed to be. 

Dependable Foundation Repairs in Tonawanda, NY

Having troubles with uneven floors, hard to open windows, or bowing leaning walls? Then the professionals at Frank's Basement Systems have the products that are sure to remedy even you most severe foundation problems. Foundation problems that look enormous are actually most often caused by shifting, weakened soil that can't support the structure. For bowing, leaning walls, we can install  I-Beam wall braces to provide a permanent solution. Our foundation piers and jack posts can correct sagging, cracked, sinking floors, bringing them back to the way they were supposed to be. 

At Frank's Basement Systems, we are proud to serve our area and we put customer service as our top priority. Our friendly staff and professionally trained technicians want to help you find a solution that will work best for you and your home. Call us today for a free estimate!

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.

Full Basement Waterproofing in Tonawanda, NY

John's basement had a long history of water. He called Frank's Basement Systems for a free estimate on a waterproofing his basement. Frank inspected John's basement and determined that a full perimeter system would be best.

The system included WaterGuard interior drainage system around the perimeter of the basement at the base of the walls. 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.

John's basement was totally protected against water in just 3 days!

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!
