Job Stories From Albany County, NY
Basement Waterproofing in Selkirk, NY

Homeowners in Selkirk, NY were looking to eventually refinish their basement to have a workout area and recreation area; however, there was an obstacle in the way that they had to resolve first. Their current sump pump wasn't powerful enough to keep water out of their basement. With the pump burning out and water wreaking havoc, they needed to find an effective solution so that they may be able to refinish their basement in the future. 

Our patented TripleSafe sump pump system proved to be the ideal solution for these homeowners. Sporting 3 pumps and a liner to prevent silt and root blockages, the TripleSafe would prevent overworking of their sump system. One of the pumps is even a battery back-up should the power go out during a rainstorm. Homeowners can now look forward to their basement refinishing now that they have a dry basement!

Wall Crack Repair in Cohoes, NY

Homeowners in Cohoes, NY had an unsightly crack form in the basement foundation wall from a plumbing issue with their kitchen sink. This crack caused water to seep into the basement and further damage the insulation on the walls. They did some research online and found Adirondack Basement Systems so they scheduled their free estimate!

When meeting with our Design Specialist Larry they expressed their concerns and explained what they were hoping to have accomplished in their basement. Larry did a thorough inspection of the wall to ensure he provided the perfect solution for this homeowner's needs. Together they decided FlexiSpan would solve the issue permanently.

FlexiSpan is ideal for basement cracks because unlike hydraulic cement, it will never re-crack. The special polyurethane injection stays bonded to the wall over time even with any shifts in movement. It's a solution you never have to worry about failing! These homeowners no longer need to be concerned with water and moisture entering their dry basement through the crack.

A customer's grandmother had extensive foundation issues in her basement.

Our design specialist, Bill Seabridge did a thorough inspection of the walls and determined that our PowerBrace system was the ideal solution.

Wet Basement Solution in Altamont, NY

A homeowner in Altamont, NY had standing water beneath their basement that was causing the space to be damp and musty smelling. While researching a permanent solution they contacted Adirondack Basement Systems for a free estimate from one of our certified basement specialists. Bill Seabridge met with the homeowner to go over their concerns and questions while doing a thorough inspection of their basement. Based on what the customer wanted and what he found, he suggested CleanSpace vapor barrier for the walls and a SaniDry Sedona dehumdifier. CleanSpace was designed for crawlspaces and basements specifically. The inorganic durable material is mold resistant and prevents critters from gaining access. The SaniDry Sedona is our newest model of SaniDry dehuidifiers and is the most compact design we offer. It is energy star rated and highly efficient, removing up to 100 pints a day. It drains automatically and has a humidity sensor to ensure the relative humidity stays below 55%. With this system in place the homeowner no longer has to worry about the water beneath their basement causing any further issue.

Lifting a Home in Berne, NY

A homeowner in Berne, NY had a blocked foundation with structural issues. Hydrostatic pressure was causing the blocks to deteriorate and compromise the structural integrity of the home. They contacted Adirondack Basement Systems to receive a FREE estimate and figure out what solutions there were for repairing the foundation. Our Design Specialist, Bill Seabridge did a thorough inspection inside and outside of the home to decipher what damage had already happened and what might've caused it. He found a variety of cracks including stairstep cracks in the blocks and hairline cracks throughout the concrete slabs in both the garage and the basement. Some of the walls were showing signs of bowing and the overhang porch above the garage was sloping towards the center.

Bill sat down with the homeowners to discuss what he found and present the solutions he knew would be most ideal for their home. He suggested that we install push piers to help stabilize the foundation and solve settlement problems. Supportworks Push Piers are constructed with galvanized steel and can reach greater depths than any other repair option. They also help provide opportunity to lift the foundation back to its original position. The push piers were installed by being hydraulically driven through the soil until they reached bedrock or stable soil. This allows the weight of the home to be transferred onto the load-bearing soil. Once installed, they were able to lift the foundation back to its original position. Now that the foundation is stabilized, they will no longer have to worry about structural damage.

The homeowner set up their free estimate with one of our certified basement specialists, Tim VanKempen. Tim met with the homeowner and discussed the benefits of our SaniDry units. Right away they knew it was exactly what their basement needed. Since installation of their SaniDry XP, they have had a dry, clean basement!

They decided that they wanted to rectify the issue so they contacted Adirondack Basement Systems to schedule their free estimate with one of our Certified Basement Specialists. Our Design Specialist met with the homeowner and did a thorough inspection of the basement before discussing what options they had. Together they decided it would be best to install a sump pump system with a perimeter drain. We installed a SuperSump along with Flangeless WaterGuard around the perimeter of the basement and PolyDrain drainage matting along the floor. A new window well with a domed lid was installed to prevent water seepage from the windows. With this new system in place the homeowner never needs to worry about water damage again!

Power Bracing and CleanSpace in Delmar, NY

These concrete block walls of this basement were crumbling, so the owner came to us for a solution. We installed our Power Bracing System, which is a steel I-beam that is braced against the foundation wall and uses the concrete floor and the floor joist to stabilize the wall. Two concrete anchors are used to hold the brace in place against the bottom of the foundation wall. Essentially, the power braces permanently stabilize your home's foundation walls. We also used CleanSpace over the grout on the lower portion of the wall.

Waterproofing in Glenmont, NY

Moisture and musty odors are a common problem in basements. This customer had both issues, as well as some water seeping in around the walls. Our knowledgeable Design Specialist proposed The SaniDry Sedona, the world's most efficient, high-performance dehumidifier and filtration system, without a bulky heat exchange core. With its small size, it takes up less space in a basement and easily fits in small crawlspaces. It eliminates damp and musty odors, and also removes up to 95 pints of water per day. We also installed a TripleSafe Sump Pump System, which keeps your basement dry with triple the protection. Most sump pumps fail because of either a failed pump, a pump that can't handle high volumes of water or power failure. The TripleSafe assures protection from all three sump pump problems. A bubbler pot was installed as well. This is a gutter accessory that collects water and redistributes it away from your house and onto your lawn, where it can keep your grass green and your trees watered. The final result is a moisture and odor free, DRY basement!

Basement Waterproofing in Albany, NY

This customer in Albany, NY, was having issues with their basement constantly being wet any time it rained out. Our Design Specialist, Dave LaCroix, decided that it would be best to install a drainage system within the basement. Of course, we used our patented product, the WaterGuard drainage system!

This system is a sub-floor drainage system, meaning that the system drain lays below the floor, but on top of the foundation. The WaterGuard is designed to catch any water leaks, redirecting the water through the drainage system, and out of the home through our Exterior Discharge Line. Since it is installed under the floor slab, it is practically invisible to the homeowner! The install is quicker, easier, and cheaper than other methods used in the industry. 

Our foreman Austin Putnam, and his crew arrived on the scene to install the WaterGuard Port. The port is used to flush sand and anything else that may sneak its way into the system. This item makes the system flush-able and easy to keep clean and allows water to continue to drain correctly. The final step of this project was to install our IceGuard, which prevent floods from a clogged or potentially frozen discharge line. This makes sure all forms of flooding stay out, whether it's the spring rain or the winter snow.

If you are also struggling with a wet, damp basement reach out to us today to schedule your free, no-obligation estimate.

Waterproofing in Delmar, NY

Our customer in Delmar, NY, called us with concerns of water leaking into her basement after heavy rainstorms. Our Design Specialist Tyler Dahlin went to check out the home, and see what was going on. He proposed a long-term waterproofing solution, starting with the WaterGuard drainage system. This system, which is hidden, catches any water leaks, whether it is coming from the floor, or through the wall. The water is then pumped out of the house through our Exterior Discharge Line, which is protected by our IceGuard to prevent the line from freezing. 

Our next step for this basement was installing our TripleSafe Sump Pump System. This system keeps your basement dry with three levels of protection. The first pump within the system is set at the lowest level, which is made for normal use. The second pump is higher up, used in case the first pump fails, or the level of water goes above the first pump. The third pump, which is connected to our UltraSump battery, is used in case of a power outage. Our system gives you peace of mind that, even if there is a long power outage, your basement still won't flood! We also included our WaterWatch alarm system, so that the homeowner is aware that something is wrong. The alarm is inserted down into the sump liner and rest on top of the cover. It will sound off if the water rises above the pumps. This can usually happen if there is sediment, or a large object blocking the port. This measure ensures that your basement will be protected.

Our customer was so excited to be able to use her basement for storage again, and not worry about her items being wet. If you have a similar issue, feel free to contact us today for a free estimate!

CleanSpace and TripleSafe Basement Installation in East Berne, NY

The big problem this homeowner had was water getting into their basement. While the traditional basement storm doors may not be as prevalent today, that does not mean there isn’t a solution to keeping moisture out. However, keeping it out is only half the battle; the other is keeping the water far away.  

Our design specialist came up with a plan that focused primarily on shifting the drainage away from the house. The two big products that make this happen are the TripleSafe Sump System and the WaterGuardboth of these pieces of tech help pump the water away from the basement and ensures that none of it gets out in the process. Then, as an extra precaution, we also installed an IceGuard and LawnScape System to help keep the elements from interfering with the drainage process. All these products work together like an all-star team to help make this customer’s basement a winning environment.

Large Egress Window Installation in Selkirk, NY

This homeowner wanted an egress window installed to provide ventilation and safety all while adding an aesthetically pleasing touch to their basement. Since this job didn’t require a replacement of a pre-existing window, instead putting in an entirely new one, a great amount of work lay ahead. First and foremost, precise measurements were taken and double-checked to make sure everything was accurate—even the slightest mistake during this step could lead to disastrous results. Once the measurements and spot (in this instance it was in between the deck and original window) are settled on, it’s time to dig! In order to make room for both the window and RockWell, a sizeable chunk had to be dug up to allocate the proper space needed. For a job like this, we do the digging ourselves; streamlining the process and making installation as quick and efficient as possible. With the area now clear, we were free to start the actual installation. Finally, after we’ve secured the products in place and checked their integrity, we clean up the mess we made and leave the homeowner with a fresh, safe space.

CarbonArmor and BrightWall System in Delmar, NY

Like any structure, it’s important to have a good foundation. Your basement is vital to the health and strength of your home, so it’s important to be aware of any issues that exist or improvements that can be made. This homeowner wanted to accomplish two things: improve the integrity of their walls and make the space look nicer. The two primary products that accomplish this? CarbonArmor and BrightWall. 

The first step in this job was to survey the basement and determine where the CarbonArmor would work best. In the pictures, the orange tape you can see on the walls indicate where a strip of CarbonArmor was to be installed. CarbonArmor is all about permanently stabilizing the foundation walls of your home. CarbonArmor uses fiber-reinforced polymers which are flexible enough to form perfectly against any basement wall and 10 times stronger than steel, so you know its got the proper strength to keep the walls from bowing or deteriorating. Installation of CarbonArmor is super quick and non-invasive; all it needs to do is attach to the floor joist. After the CarbonArmor was put in place, We added BrightWall over the top of the CarbonArmor to give the basement a clean, finished look while also providing an effective moisture and vapor barrierCleanSpace is waterproof, stain-resistant, and easy to clean, making this product the perfect pick if you’re looking to give your basement a fresh look and provide water protection at the same time.

Three Product Protection in Albany, NY

The fight against intruding water is an ongoing battle for many homeowners. Sometimes it seems like no matter what is done, the water still comes, leading many to believe a flooded basement is inevitable. But that is far from the reality. When it comes to keeping moisture and water from building up in your home, all it takes is the right product. 

This homeowner had serious concerns about the water in their basement. Even with a sump pump already in their house, water kept coming in and overstaying its welcome. After meeting with our design specialist, a new course of action was drawn up to replace the old one in place—and that included replacing the ineffective, pre-existing sump pump. 

There were three primary products used to boost this basement’s waterproofing system. Since sump pumps were already being discussed, that’s where we’ll start. While many houses have sump pumps installed, over the years they become outdated or get worn down to the point where they can hardly handle a fraction of what they used to. This happens especially when the pump is not serviced regularly. We decided to replace the old pump with a brand-new SinglePack Super Sump, which is a top-of-the-line pump designed to handle high levels of water without any trouble. We also paired this product with proper additions that help it function at its greatest potential even in the event of freezing temperatures or heavy downpours. 

Working in tandem with the SinglePack are a series of WaterGuards and a CleanSpace system. The WaterGuards were installed where the walls meet the floor. This process is done carefully as to avoid doing any damage to the foundation of the house. Our installation team takes their time to make room for the WaterGuards and then when placing them in the proper spot, connecting the pieces along the way, they keep a close eye on the WaterGuards, checking to see if there’s any gaps or holes where water could get through. WaterGuards are designed to collect any moisture that seeps in through either the wall or the floor and then divert it into the main discharge system; in this case that would be the SinglePack Super Sump, which sends the water out of the house to a distance far enough away where it won’t come back. Finally, to add an extra layer of moisture protection to the waterproofing system, CleanSpace was installed along the basement walls to help out the WaterGuardsCleanSpace acts as an effective vapor barrier, pairing perfectly with WaterGuards to give moisture zero chance of getting through. With all these products, pooling water won’t ever be a problem for this house!

Tri-Product Waterproofing in Cohoes, NY

This job was a well-rounded waterproofing for a large basement space. Water had been entering and pooling in the basement, causing water damage and frustrating the homeowner. Thankfully, there was a solution to their problems! Let’s break this job down into three parts, focusing on a different primary product used for each section. 

First, there’s the WaterGuardsWaterGuard was the perfect product for this basement because it helps keep any water from pooling and diverts it away to the sump pump (more on that later). WaterGuards attach to the joists of the wall and floor, allowing them to collect moisture seeping in from either direction. The best way to think about WaterGuards is to imagine them like a gutter for the inside of your basement, gathering the water and diverting it away from the house; in this job’s case with the help of a TripleSafe Sump System. 

The TripleSafe works off of the WaterGuards by using its power to send the water that’s been collected out of the house to a distance away where it won’t come back. The TripleSafe was perfect for this homeowner because it is able to handle high-volumes of water and with a bigger basement comes the opportunity for more water. And, as an added bonus and layer of protection, the TripleSafe has a battery backup in case of a power outage and when paired with the IceGuard, like this homeowner went with, it also stays running during freezing temperatures, meaning you won't have to worry about a flooding basement even during bad weather. 

Finally, we have the CleanSpaceCleanSpace was installed along the walls of the basement to provide a vapor barrier. 20 mm thick and made of 7 layers of a polyethylene composition with a polyester cord reinforcementCleanSpace is super durableCleanSpace is perfect for keeping mositure from seeping through the walls and helps insulate the space during the cold months, helping you save money year-round. 

With these three products and some minor ones helping out, this basement is highly protected from any water that tries to get in!

Large Crawlspace Revitalization in Glenmont, NY

This job took place in a large, long, low crawl space, involving a number a number of products. Upon our first visit, our design specialist instantly noted a significant amount of water and damage to the crawl space that would have to be addressed before we could even begin the installation. After years of no protection and constant exposure to water, this crawl space’s condition was not good. The process in restoring and improving the area to a strong, healthy level began by clearing the debris and getting the water out. Once that was completed and the space was dry, we went in and began taking measurements and prepping the floors and walls for installation. As evident by the photos, CleanSpace is the most visible product that was used, but there were a number of other products involved in the waterproofing plan; Drainage Matting and two sump pumps were also installed. Drainage Matting goes underneath the CleanSpace on the floor and helps direct any seeping moisture into the drain lines where it is then pumped out by the sump systems. The two sump pumps installed were different models, one was a TripleSafe which is optimized for high volumes of water thanks to its tri-pump system that increases in power when it detects more water coming in. The other sump was a SinglePack which was brought in to help out the TripleSafe manage all the water since the crawl space is rather large. And the final product, which was mentioned earlier, the CleanSpace system, is a great vapor barrier that helps keep seeping moisture at bay and assist the other waterproofing products as well. This job revamped this crawl space tremendously and water damage is no longer a problem for this home because of these fantastic products.

Strong Foundation Support System in Albany, NY

This basement was experiencing stair step cracks going up the walls. Damage like this is typically a symptom of bowing walls, so its important to have this problem addressed before any horrific damage occurs. Potentially caused by the bowing walls, the floor above the basement was also sagging, so that also needed to be addressed. Our design specialist went over the space, taking a close look at the displacement and damage then recommended two products: PowerBraces and SmartJacks. 

The installation process started by clearing out the area to give our workers easy access to the walls and get a more accurate feel for what needs to be done. We then marked off precise locations for where the PowerBraces and SmartJacks would be installed after measuring the height of the basement to determine what sizes would be needed. The PowerBraces are custom-cut to size then attached at the floor and joist, adjusted to perfectly fit to the wall and stabilize it from buckling any more. PowerBraces also have the ability to be tightened over time and potentially straighten the walls back to their original position. The SmartJacks were then brought in to do the same exact thing that the PowerBraces do, only they assist the floor/ceiling as opposed to the wall. SmartJacks have the same ability as PowerBraces to be tightened and help lift the floor back to an even position. Both of these products are strong, highly durable and rust-resistant, meaning this foundation will have tremendous support for years to come.

Old Basement Waterproofing in Slingerlands, NY

This house was built in late 1920s and was experiencing some leakage in the basement. With old structures like this, it’s only a matter of time before water issues arise. There’s no escaping the rain, so it’s bound to get in eventually. The most notable damage could be found on the walls and some damp spots on the floor. The good news was there wasn’t any foundation issues to go along with it so solving the water troubles was relatively simple! 

First, we measured out a path for a WaterGuard and then got to work creating space to install the system along the joists where the walls meet the floor. The WaterGuard collects moisture seeping in through the walls or floor and redirects it to the TripleSafe sump pump that we also installed. There was already a pump of sorts in the basement, but it was very old and ineffective. We were able to use the original spot for the TripleSafe, which saves time and makes the process much smoother. The TripleSafe is our most powerful model and has no trouble handling water as it comes. Attached to the TripleSafe on the outside of the house is an IceGuard which prevents the water from freezing in cold temperatures and thus causing the sump to stop working. Finally, our CleanSpace system was installed (custom cut for the basement) along the walls to act as a vapor barrier to help keep the moisture at bay and redirect it down to the WaterGuard before it has the chance to cause any damage. This old basement’s waterproofing system works like brand new thanks to these products!

Sinking Crawl Space Wall Assistance in Albany, NY

This homeowner’s crawl space walls were sinking, causing foundation issues that could’ve caused serious damage if not addressed properly in a timely manner. There was access to the crawl space so our Design Specialist worked his way into the small area and took a look around, inspecting the walls and support beams to determine how displaced they had become. They then recommended the customer have SmartJacks installed to give the floors above a lift and to take much of the pressure off of the walls and keep them from sinking. The Design Specialist then passed the job off to our installation team.  

To start off, our crew installed support beams running parallel to one another at the top of the crawl space. Then, they placed the custom-sized SmartJacks underneath and adjusted them to the exact level they need to be. Once in position, they fastened the support piers to the beams, providing a cohesive boost to the foundation. In total, there were nine SmartJacks put in and they immediately began doing wonders for the crawl space. The walls no longer would have to succumb to the immense weight of the house alone. SmartJacks are super strong and highly durable, able to take the brunt of the load and keep the foundation from sinking any further. Plus, they are completely adjustable so over time they can be tightened to lift the displaced floor back to its original position!

Basement Window Replacement in Delmar, NY

Windows take quite a beating over the years, whether it be from water or bugs or what have you. If their integrity starts to crumble, then it’ll lead to trouble for the rest of your basement and beyond. For someone looking to upgrade their windows and brighten up the look of their home, EverLast is the way to go. 

The installation process for EverLast windows begins with lots of measuring, taking the utmost care around every corner and every millimeter; one wrong number and the window is useless. Each one is custom-fit for the job so there is no room for error. We double and triple check everything to ensure it's right the first time. Once we’re 100% confident with our work, we got the window ordered and assembled, then took out the old one, clearing away any debris left over. Then, we prepped the sill for the EverLastAfterwards, we placed the new window in its proper place, double-checking our measurements once again, then sealing it in tight, making sure there’s no openings for water or bugs or animals to get. And with that, the job was done! This homeowner no longer had to worry about things getting in or heat getting out thanks to our EverLast windows!

Simple PowerBrace System in Latham, NY

The older a home gets, the more likely foundation problems are to arise. One issue that appears with time is bowing walls, which can lead to serious trouble if left untreated. This homeowner noticed their basement walls buckling out of place a bit, so they called us to see what could be done. In a situation like this, there’s only one product that can effectively keep the damage from getting worse: PowerBraces. 

 

To start, we measured the basement space as a whole and the wall’s displacement from its original position. Next, we checked where the wall was weakest, determining if there are any locations that may require more support than others. Even spacing for the PowerBraces is important because if one spot is taking on more than another, then the entire system could collapse due to the uneven weight distribution. To prevent this from happening, we take extra care during the planning phase, precisely mapping out the location of each PowerBraceOnce we marked the spots and double checked our work, we brought in the right sized PowerBraces and cut them down to perfectly fit to the wall. Installation is not invasive and the braces fit snugly in without any intrusion. We attached them at the joists and created a nice, snug fit between the PowerBraces and the wall. And that’s that. PowerBraces will keep the walls from bowing any further and can be tightened to bring the wall back to its proper place.

Drainage Matting/CleanSpace Duo in Feura Bush, NY

This job story highlights two products part of a larger waterproofing system: CleanSpace and Drainage Matting. These two typically go hand in hand with one another and do a great job of controlling incoming moisture. This basement was experiencing a great deal of seeping water from the walls and floors, which led to pooling and damage. Our installation team, in order to keep the water coming in to a minimum and redirecting what does come in, placed Drainage Matting on the floor and CleanSpace on the walls. Both the Drainage Matting and the CleanSpace act as strong vapor barriers designed to stop pooling water. This basement also had a new TripleSafe sump pump installed so the CleanSpace and Drainage Matting help facilitate moisture that does manage to get through the walls or floors to the pump where it is sent out and away from the home. If you’re looking to provide your basement with a solid layer of protection, Drainage Matting and CleanSpace are the perfect choice!

SmartJacks-Waterproofing Job in Slingerlands, NY

This job combined both waterproofing and foundation support. Looking first at the foundation portion, the house in question was experiencing sagging floors up on the first level, which means the support beams in the crawl space underneath needed support. The perfect product to accomplish this was SmartJacks. Our team measured the height of the crawl space, as well as the displacement of the pre-existing beams, then brought in SmartJacks of the proper height. They spaced them out properly around the crawl space in order to provide even support throughout. This is key because if the weight is displaced, then it’s very likely that the portion under the most stress will fail. Once the SmartJacks were in place, they were secured underneath the support beams and tightened up against them. Over time, SmartJacks can be tightened even more to raise the floor back to its original level. 

 

On the Waterproofing front, the photos display a simple TripleSafe-EDC setup. WaterGuards were also installed to help facilitate the water, but they are not visible in any pictures. For reference, they are placed at the base of the wall where it meets the floor. The TripleSafe is an excellent sump pump with three levels of operation, automatically switching based on the amount of water coming in to the sump. The TripleSafe ejects the water through the EDC pipes you see in the middle photos (they get covered up after installation, don’t worry), and out into the storm drain.  

 

All these products are excellent in their own right and do what is needed to get your home feeling like a place you can be comfortable living in.

Old Basement Waterproofing Update in Albany, NY

This home was over 100 years old and its basement’s waterproofing system was, more or less, nonexistent. Water is, unfortunately, an inevitable threat to basements so it’s important they are given the proper attention they need to prevent flooding and damage. This is especially the case when it comes to older structures like this one. The first step in the job process was for one of our certified design specialists to do a full inspection of the basement and come up with an effective plan to keep the water at bay. With the state this basement was in, a complete waterproofing system was required. 

After drawing up the plan and both parties agreeing to it, it was passed on to the installation team and they got to work. The first step was clearing out the basement so there was room for the team to operate. Next, drainage matting was laid out on the floor to help facilitate any water that might find its way into the basement to the sump pump where it is sent away from the home. Along the walls, CleanSpace, a highly durable vapor barrier, was spread from floor to ceiling. CleanSpace’s purpose is to keep seeping moisture from getting through the walls and into the basement, redirecting it down into the WaterGuard at the bottom of the wall where it too goes to the sump pump. The original pump in this basement was basically just a giant hole, so adding a TripleSafe to the waterproofing system was a tremendous boost. Working all together, these products made this basement highly protected from the constant moisture threat that comes with living in the Northeast!

Crawl Space Rennovation in Westerlo, NY

This homeowner had a crawl space that was old, musty, and in rough shape. They called us to come take a look and see what could be done to improve the area. The crawl space was located through a small opening off the basement, but that was no problem for our design specialist. They got right in there and properly surveyed the entire crawl space, taking measurements and pictures that helped them draw up a plan of action. Our design specialist then went over this plan with the homeowner and once both sides agreed to the terms, it was time for our installation team to get to work. 

Thankfully, this crawl space didn’t require too much work to improve its condition. The two primary products used to provide a solid layer of protection from moisture that was causing the odor and poor air quality. First, a layer of drainage matting was laid on the ground of the crawl space to help facilitate water and keep it from pooling. Along the walls and over the drainage matting on the floor, CleanSpace was spread out all around to act as a vapor barrier to keep moisture seeping in from the outside soil from causing issues. CleanSpace is a 4-layer polyethylene composition that is highly durable and reliable, giving this crawl space protection for years to come. Once completed, the foreperson of the crew showed the homeowner the work they did and explained how everything functions. And that was that! This crawl space was renovated to a clean, healthy condition!

Strong and Simple Waterproofing System in Albany, NY

This job takes a look at two products, the TripleSafe sump pump and WaterGuard, showcasing their relationship to one another. The homeowner gave us a call because they were dealing with moisture seeping in from the soil outside the basement, causing damage and pooling. One of our certified design specialists went out and surveyed the basement to find a proper solution to this persistent problem. The plan that was ultimately drawn up and approved by the homeowner was a full perimeter system paired with a TripleSafe; a common and effective method of handling water problems. 

 

Work to install this system began by removing portions of the wall and floor, where the two touch. This is done to make room for the WaterGuard which is tucked underneath the bottom of the wall to collect water and redirect it towards the sump pump. This helps prevent any moisture from building up and pooling in the basement. After the product is tightly secured in place, the installation team re-poured the concrete and replaced the portions of the walls they removed. They then moved on to installing the TripleSafe sump pump which involved placing it in the ground and hooking up discharge pipes to it that run out of the house, underneath the ground, and to a LawnScape outlet a proper distance away from the home that the water doesn’t come running right back in. Anything the WaterGuard system running around the edges of the basement collects gets sent to the TripleSafe where it is pumped out for good!

Large Basement Window Installation in Delmar, NY

Basement windows play different roles depending on the purpose of the space, but the bottom line is they are important to every home. This homeowner had a finished basement that they wanted to feature more natural light while still being protected from all nature may throw at it. One of our certified design specialists surveyed the space and conversed with the homeowner to collectively come up with the perfect placement for a new window that is pretty, practical, and protective. They marked off the spot where the window would go with tape at properly measured intervals. A custom window was then ordered, matching the dimensions taken at the appointment. When the window arrived, the installation team got to work on the inside and outside of the house, clearing out area in the ground and wall to allow room to work and for the window well. The window was then installed, not allowing even the smallest gap between the pane and the wall. With the window secured, the well was installed with a protective covering to keep water, animals, and people from falling in. The team then filled in the ground they removed and double-checked their work to ensure that there were no gaps and everything was properly cleaned. And that was that! This home’s basement got an aesthetically pleasing upgrade that everyone can be proud of.

Multi-Room Waterproofing in Delmar, NY

Basements with multiple rooms can be a bit more complicated to waterproof, but not a problem for us! The estimate process remained the same, the design specialist surveyed each room and every corner, gauging how serious the water troubles were, while finding the entry points in the process. Once they completed their walkthrough, they drafted a plan and presented it to the homeowner for approval. Afterwards, the project was handed off to the installation team. The installation team began by removing the bottom of the walls to make room for the WaterGuard. The best way to think about WaterGuard is like an indoor gutter system. It rests where the walls meet the floor, collecting water as it comes in and directing it to the sump pump. In the case of this basement, there were a few areas where things were in the way, preventing the team from getting at the walls, so in those instances, they installed TrenchDrain. TrenchDrain is WaterGuard, but for the open floor. It picks up where WaterGuard leaves off, going around the objects in the way and then meeting back up with WaterGuard on the other side. The entire track connected through all the rooms and led to the SinglePack sump pump. Prior to our installation, the basement did have a sump pit, but it was basically just a hole in the ground. The SinglePack was a significant upgrade and tied a lovely bow on the waterproofing system. With all these products working in tandem, this home now has great protection from the weather!

All-Around Waterproofing System in Ravena, NY

Water is an inevitable problem for any basement, especially here in New York state. There are plenty of different signs of moisture damage that I’m sure we’re all familiar with. In this job story, you can see the stains caused by water damage along the walls of the basement, as well as slight pooling on the floor. Even without large cracks or holes in the basement, moisture is able to penetrate the house from the outside soil through the smallest openings. This homeowner had been experiencing water problems for some time and decided that enough was enough. Our team installed a complete waterproofing system to put these issues to rest once and for all. The job started by clearing out a space where the walls and floor meet, then installing WaterGuard and filling in the portions that were removed. WaterGuard collects any seeping moisture and redirects it along its tracks to the sump pump. Along the walls, CleanSpace was spread to act as a vapor barrier, helping to keep water away and sending it down into the WaterGuard. The final piece of this trifecta was the TripleSafe sump pump. The TripleSafe is top of its class in the sump world. With a backup battery and WaterWatch alarm, it’ll keep the basement water-free even during horrible storms and power outages. Also, with its three levels of power, it automatically changes its pumping output depending on how much water is directed into it by the WaterGuard. With these three products working together, the basement of this home won’t have any more water troubles to deal with!

Adding Foundation Support to Complete Waterproofing System in Albany, NY

This homeowner already had our complete waterproofing system, but they had growing concerns over the integrity of their basement walls. One of our design specialists came by and surveyed the walls, measuring the extent of the displacement. Thankfully, the situation wasn’t dire and our PowerBraces were more than capable of handling the issue. The support beams were custom-ordered for the basement to ensure a perfect fit. PowerBraces are perfect for any situation because they can be installed right on the walls or like in the case of this basement, right over the waterproofing system. Once they were secured to the floor and ceiling, the installation team double-checked everything, making sure the entire system was in perfect working order and nothing was impeding on the other. And with that, this basement now had a great waterproofing and foundation support system, all with minimal intrusion and no hindrances to the pre-existing products!

Preventing Water Damage in Alcove, NY

This new homeowner in Alcove, NY, reached out to Adirondack Basement Systems to prevent any water damage to their new basement. They wanted to have a piece of mind and not have to worry about any damage to their basement as they came from a previous home with a water damaged basement. Our design specialist recommended that the steps to do that would be to straighten and waterproof the walls with PowerBraces and WaterGuard, install a sump pump with a lawn guard drain, and a dehumidifier to keep the moisture and humidity out of the basement. The homeowner was more than happy to go forward with the project so that they didn't have to worry about flooding or collapsed foundation in their basement.

Crawl Space Waterproofing in Guilderland, NY

This homeowner wanted an effective way to keep her crawl space from flooding with water. We had installed an EZFlow which is a French Drain System that is specifically used in crawl spaces. It is most effective because while crawl spaces are normally filled with dirt, this drain allows the water to flow through without the dirt clogging it up. We also installed an IceGuard drainage system which has anti-freeze and a unique escape route so that if the EZ drainage system freezes or gets clogged the water will still flow out of the crawl space. With these effective drainage systems, this homeowner is very happy that her crawl space will no longer fill with water.

Adding Wall Support to a Basement in Albany NY

A homeowner in Albany NY reached out to Adirondack Basement Systems because she had noticed that the wall in her basement was leaning inwards.

Understanding the discomfort and the potential damage to this home, Adirondack Basement Systems stepped in to offer not just a fix, but a full-blown transformation.

PolyLevel® Concrete Repair for a Garage in Albany, NY

When a homeowner in Albany, NY noticed a big crack in the entrance to their garage, along with some unsettling holes appearing in the driveway, it was clear that quick action was needed to avoid any further complications. This homeowner reached out to us, Adirondack Basement Systems, concerned for the safety and integrity of their property. Our customer care team quickly set up an appointment for a Design Specialist to inspect the home and recommend a solution.

Once agreed, our production team went in and strategically injected the high-density polyurethane foam beneath the concrete to lift and stabilize the affected areas.
