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 Youngstown, NY
Basement Waterproofing in Youngstown, NY

Homeowner Charles, from Youngstown, NY, called Frank's when he noticed a large horizontal crack on his basement foundation wall. He noticed some water leaking into his basement from the crack and decided to do something about it once and for all. Our team came in and noticed two issues - 1) Charles did not have an interior drainage system, and 2) his home had some underlying foundational concerns, since his wall was bowing inwards. Our team got to work!

First, we installed a full waterproofing system so that his basement remains dry for years to come. Backed by our lifetime warranty, we installed a full perimeter drainage system with our patented WaterGuard drainage leading to our highly effective and long-lasting SuperSump Plus sump pump. Our SuperSump Plus system contains a 1/3 horsepower cast-iron Zoeller pump, capable of removing about 2,240 gallons of water from the basement per hour. Not only that, but it is covered with an air-tight sump lid that features both a floor drain and an alarm system.

Lastly, our crew took care of Charles's bowed wall with several i-beams. These i-beams are used to stabilize the wall and bring it back to its normal upright position.

Fracture Repair in Youngstown, NY.

Deanna had been living in her home in Youngstown, NY for several years, and she loved her cozy little house. However, one day when she went down to her basement, she noticed a small crack in the foundation wall. At first, she thought it was just a cosmetic issue, but as time went on, the crack began to grow and become more noticeable.

Deanna knew that this was a problem that needed to be addressed before it got any worse, so she started looking for a professional to help her. She came across Frank's Basement Systems, who specializes in basement waterproofing and foundation repair.

When Deanna called Frank's, she was immediately impressed with their professionalism and knowledge. They sent out a specialist to assess the problem and provide her with a solution. The specialist recommended using Xypex Repair, a unique product that is designed to repair cracks in concrete.

Deanna was relieved to hear that there was a solution to her problem, and she agreed to move forward with the project. Frank's team of technicians arrived at her home on the scheduled date and began the repair process. They started by cleaning the crack and then applying the Xypex Repair product.

Deanna watched as they worked quickly and efficiently, and she was amazed at how quickly they were able to repair the fracture. When the project was complete, the crack was gone, and the foundation wall looked as good as new.

Crawl Space Encapsulation in Youngstown, NY.

As Eric sat in his living room, he couldn't help but notice the musty smell coming from his crawl space. He had been living in his home in Youngstown, NY for a few years now, and he knew that the crawl space was always a problem area. He had tried various solutions over the years, but nothing seemed to work.

One day, Eric decided enough was enough. He did some research online and came across Frank's Basement System. After reading some reviews and doing some more research, Eric decided to give them a call. After taking a look, the specialist recommended encapsulating the crawl space with CleanSpace's patented vapor barrier system. The system would seal off the crawl space from the outside, preventing moisture and humidity from entering and causing problems like mold, musty odors, and even structural damage.

Over the next few days, Eric watched as Frank's team worked tirelessly to transform his crawl space. They removed any debris and installed the vapor barrier system, sealing off the space completely. They also installed a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier to regulate the moisture levels and prevent any future problems.

When the project was complete, Eric couldn't believe the difference. The musty odor was gone, and the air in his home felt fresher and cleaner. He was amazed at the level of professionalism and attention to detail that Frank's Basement Systems had displayed throughout the entire project.

WaterGuard in Youngstown, NY

Ronald's basement flooded during heavy rains. He had dealt with the problem for a while, but decided he wanted a permanent solution and called Frank's.

Sean Kelley visited Ronald's home and inspected his basement. Sean designed a custom solution to provide Ronald with a permanently dry basement. 

The first part of Ronald's solution was WaterGuard drainage to be installed around the entire basement. WaterGuard catches and traps water from both the walls and the floor. The WaterGuard was then tied into a new TripleSafe sump pump system. With a battery back up pump plus two other pumps, Ronald's basement will never flood again.

To finish his system, a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier was installed and tied into the TripleSafe system lid. The SaniDry Sedona removes up to 95 pints of water per day and never needs to be emptied. 

With his custom solution installed, Ronald never has to worry about his basement flooding again!
