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.
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.
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.
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.
