Everyone who has seen the bathroom you installed has loved it. Great job and thank you. I would highly recommend your company to others. No regrets so far, but I am as of this writing, still waiting on the written warranties for the work you've concluded and the extended 3 year warranty for the installation of the quick john tank Rod promised he would get to me. In retrospect concerning the tank, I wish Jeff or Tim Van Kempen would have told me that installing the tank the way you did was not what that style tank was designed for. That being said everything is currently fine with the plumbing and I'm cautiously optimistic that I won't experience any problems with that for years to come. If that's not the case and further work needs to be done, I would not hesitate calling your company to do the repairs. God Bless you all at Adirondack Basement systems. Yours Truely, Joe and Charlein Cashara

We had an excellent experience with your company from my first contact right through to completion of the water guard system, everyone was great. Tim has been very accommodating and we are still working with him to complete our basement room. The installation crew was top notch, professional, dedicated, friendly, even tollerated our four cats invading their work space and their truck when it was open. We were told four days for the project and it was completely finished in two days. Anytime I went to the basement to ask questions, they stopped work immediately and gave me their full attention. We hope to finish the rest of our project with you over the next year. Unfortunately it is cost prohibitive for us to complete it all at once but again, Tim has been very understanding and continues to work with us as we move forward in stages.

The entire process from the initial call to the final walk through was pressure free and extremely pleasant. The installation crew was professional and they are experts at what they do. They did an amazing job and cleaned up everything just as the salesman said they would. I know I increased the value of my home by having Adirondack Basement systems encapsulate my wet and nasty crawl space. Overall this a great company to do business with. I would highly recommend them to anyone who has water issues in their crawl space or basement.

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.
The CleanSpace liner is used to isolate the home from the earth and block water and dampness from coming through completely and permanently. This dramatically reduces the humidity level in the air and eliminates mold growth. The CleanSpace liner is carefully cut and installed by trained installers and is completely sealed over the walls to fully isolate moisture or dampness from coming through the concrete basement walls. The result is an attractive, bright, tough impervious liner - and a healthy home above it!
This homeowner had a finished basement that was damaged from water that was entering an unknown entry point. Worried about potential mold growth and the appearance, they contacted Adirondack Basement Systems to schedule a FREE estimate with one of our certified basement specialists named Tim VanKempen. After a thorough inspection, Tim suggested that the homeowner have our EverLast Restoration Wall Panels installed ro repair the damaged drywall. Each EverLast panel is waterproof and mold resistant with an R-13 insulation rating, all backed by a 50 year warranty.
This home was in need of new basement windows, as the existing windows were starting to rot and rust. Our EverLast windows are energy-efficient and vinyl-framed. They will never rot or rust like wooden and metal frames do. Easily removable, these windows can be cleaned and maintained without issue.
This family from Albany, New York decided to finish their basement to make room for their expanding family. This is a great before and after of the stairs (and underneath).
Mr. F contacted our company with concerns about his front porch creating a tripping hazard due to the concrete slab dropping and leaving a high step to get into his house. Our Design Specialist Tim met with Mr. F to discuss the best solution to this issue, suggesting our patented Poly Level System. Afterwards our foreman Michael came and inserted Poly Level into the concrete ultimately solving the issue and creating a safer porch for Mr. F and his family.
Our Poly Level System is a state of the art approach to repairing sinking concrete. Rather than using a mixture of concrete and mud, this method utilizes high-density polymers to raise slabs back to a desired level.
This shows the dramatic transformation of an old window to a new Everlast Window installed by Adirondack Basement Systems
Zen Walls are the simplest way to create a dry, clean, finished look on your basement walls.
Zen Wall is a 1/4 inch thick encapsulated fiberglass core with a reflective foil vapor barrier on the back side and a decorative vinyl finish on the front side. It is used with a perimeter basement waterproofing system to waterproof a basement wall, and stop water vapor from coming through the wall into the basement air. This enables your basement walls to look dry, and get a clean finished look in one easy step.
Homeowners in Clifton Park, NY had a wet basement. The moisture was causing black mold to grow, making it unsafe to breathe and ruining belongings that were in storage. Adirondack Basement Systems came in to install a complete waterproofing system to create a clean and safe usable space. Our TripleSafe Sump System was installed with a WaterGuard perimeter drainage system. A SaniDry CX dehumidifier was installed as well to keep the air dry and free of mold particulates. BrightWall paneling and ThermalDry flooring were both installed to spruce up the look of the basement and prevent water vapor from seeping in and ruining any belongings or supporting mold growth. The complete installation transformed their basement entirely!
Transform your unfinished basement into a healthy, comfortable and beautiful living area that your family will fall in love with.
