This basement in Ballston Lake, NY had a crack in the wall that was leaking and unappealing to look at. The homeowners wanted to repair the crack to prevent any further water damage and dampness in the basement. Fortunately, Adirondack Basement Systems had the perfect permanent solution, Flexispan crack repair sealant. Instead of trapping the water in the wall causing the crack to worsen, Flexispan allows the water to drain at the base of the crack and into your basement. The inorganic material helps to prevent any mold growth from moisture.

A home in Mechanicville, NY had multiple cracks in its foundation. These cracks were causing water to seep through with black mold growth and efflorescence build up on the wall. Adirondack Basement Systems came in and repaired the cracks with FlexiSpan. A permanent solution to seal wall cracks, FlexiSpan will never dry out or re-crack over time. It is made from a high-viscosity polyurethane polymer that forms a durable yet flexible seal. To ensure that it never fails, a second layer of drainage is installed over the sealed crack that will direct water to a basement drainage system or dry well.
