Homeowners in Greenville, NY had a semi-finished basement that was damaged due to a few rainstorms in early Fall. They had originally used drywall which became warped, discolored and started to grow mold. This made their once usable space inhabitable and unhealthy. Luckily, their good friend had used Adirondack Basement Systems for their own home and knew that we could provide the ideal solution to repair the homeowners basement permanently.
After meeting with one of our highly trained Design Specialists, they decided it would be best to start at the root of the cause and install a complete waterproofing system including our TripleSafe sump pump and WaterGuard perimeter drainage system. To repair the walls, our Design Specialist had the perfect solution, our EverLast wall restoration. Since only the lower half of the wall is affected by water, the drywall can be cut out and replaced with the EverLast boards. They are designed specifically for basements in that they are made of inorganic materials thus making them mold resistant. The homeowners also decided to have flooring put in as well after learning about the comfort our ThermalDry Flooring provides. Being raised on pegs up off the concrete floor, they can be about 10 degrees warmer than the concrete itself. They too are made from inorganic material so you will never have to worry about them being damaged from mold or mildew if they ever get wet. These homeowners now have a dry, usable and visually appealing basement!
A homeowner in Philmont, NY had a concrete walkway with steps that were unlevel. This caused a safety hazard for tripping and they wanted to have it fixed to ensure nobody would get injured. They contacted Adirondack Basement Systems for a free estimate on our PolyLevel repair system. PolyLevel is an alternative to mud-jacking in that it is lightweight and won't cause future sinking of the slab. It is installed by injecting a polyurethane polymer beneath the slab that raises it. Waterproof and environmentally safe, you never have to worry about it washing out from beneath the concrete and affecting the environment.
This basement in Berne, NY had damaged drywall from water seepage. Mold growth was a concern so the homeowner had to remove the drywall and find a proper solution.

Homeowners in Voorheesville, NY had a crawlspace beneath their home that caused the upstairs area to be much cooler than it should have been. It lacked proper insulation and was damp, due to water seeping through the seams of the foundation. Since this home was newly purchased, they decided it would be most ideal to rectify these issues as soon as possible. They contacted Adirondack Basement Systems for a free estimate with one of our Crawlspace specialists. Upon doing a thorough inspection, he recommended installing both a vapor barrier and a thermal barrier along the blocked walls of the crawlspace as well as sprayfoam in the joists. CleanSpace vapor barrier is made of an inorganic material which cannot support mold growth and is warrantied against rips and tears. ThermalDry Wall is a thermal barrier made with SilverGlo technology. The reflective material keeps heat from escaping and cold air from coming through.
The "K" Family already had a partially finished basement and wanted to be sure that the basement would stay dry and could withstand water if ever there was some. The "K" Family decided to install an entire perimeter system and a sump pump to be sure any and all water is being drawn out of the basement. For finishing touches, they decided to go with our EverLast Finished Wall Restoration System. Our wall system uses only mold-resistant materials- with no vulnerable organic material. The wall panels and trim are not prone to damage like drywall, wood, moldings, fabrics, wood-based flooring, and wood framing. In fact, a basement refinished with the EverLast Panels can temporarily flood from a plumbing leak, inches deep, and it is highly unlikely that walls or trim will need to be replaced! For flooring, the "K" family decided to use our ThermalDry Basement Floor System, this flooring is also made with all inorganic material and will not support mold growth or get ruined during a surprise plumbing leak or ground water in heavy rain.
