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.

A homeowner had their house on the market, and although people were coming to see their home, they were noticing that one of the basement walls was bowing. Bowing walls are a sign of foundation settlement and issues with the surrounding soil. PowerBrace repair system is ideal for most situations because it can actually improve the wall over time, not just stabilize it. There is no outside excavation required either, which means no landscape disruption. After we came and installed PowerBrace in this homeowners basement, they went on to successfully sell their home! The new homeowners are now assured there foundation will not fail with an engineered and warrantied system.
A homeowner contacted our team concerned about her failing french drain system in her basement. With water not draining appropriately and pooling near the base of the stairs, our design specialist Bill suggested the perfect solution to keep her basement dry ALL the time.
Shown in the after photo is our patented Triple Safe Sump Pump System. The sump pump features two high power pumps and a battery operated pump in the event that the power goes out to ensure your system is always working. Our back up battery alone can pump out 12,181 gallons of water! Our foreman Austin and his crew did a great job installing the Waterguard and Trenchdrain Systems for the homeowner as well. Both systems create drainage pathways for water and moisture to head straight to the sump pump. Waterguard lines the perimeter of the basement and is then neatly covered and leveled off with new cement as can be seen in the after photo. A Trenchdrain is placed at the base of stairs, a problem area for which we provided a lifetime solution to!
The homeowner no longer has to worry about faulty drainage!

Mr. "H" noticed the concrete slabs of his pool patio were uneven in several locations. Wanting to fix this issue, he contacted us right away to set up his free estimate with one of our design specialists. Mark visited Mr. "H"s home and discussed our patented Poly Level System after doing a thorough inspection of his patio. Mark explained how it is common to experience concrete settlement on pool patios and decks. The soil surrounding the pool walls is only lightly compacted out of fear of causing damage to the pool walls. Overtime it begins to settle causing the slabs to sink down with it.
There are many advantages of our Poly Level System that make it the perfect solution to this common problem. The holes where the high-density polymers are injected are much smaller than other repair options. Poly Level is also lightweight and has a quick cure time; you could drive on it after 15 minutes! Poly Level is waterproof as well so you never have to worry about it washing out beneath the slabs.
Our foreman Michael and his crew came and fixed Mr. "H"s uneven slabs successfully with Poly Level. Now Mr. "H" can lay rest assured knowing that his pool patio is structurally safe with no tripping hazards and looks great as well!
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!
As summer began to approach, a homeowner in Selkirk, NY was looking to spruce up their curb appeal. One of the items on their checklist was to repair their front porch. The concrete slab had been sinking over time in different areas causing it to be unlevel and crack. After seeing our advertisement in their local newspaper, the homeowner contacted us for a free estimate on our PolyLevel system.
PolyLevel was the ideal solution for this homeowner's porch patio as they could salvage the slab rather than pour and resurface a new one with hopes the problem wouldn't re-occur. The polymers injected into the slab are environmentally safe and waterproof meaning they can't be washed out beneath the concrete. When injected, the polymers expand and fill the space between the soil and the slab which raises it back to its original position. Now the homeowner can continue and plant flowers around their porch to have the curb appeal that they desired!

A customer's grandmother had extensive foundation issues in her basement. The foundation is old and blocked and has significantly bowed over the years due to hydrostatic pressure in the surrounding soils. They contacted Adirondack Basement Systems on their grandmother's behalf to get a free structural repair estimate. Our design specialist, Bill Seabridge did a thorough inspection of the walls and determined that our PowerBrace system was the ideal solution. Our PowerBrace solution is ideal for stabilization of foundation walls. No outside excavation is required and the beams can be tightened to allow for straightening over time. They are also rust resistant to ensure a clean look over time. Now that the PowerBrace system is installed in their basement, they no longer have to stress about foundation failure.
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.
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.
A homeowner in Albany, NY had a bowing wall in their basement that they were looking to have stabilized before it caused any further damage.

With these steel I-beams in place, the homeowner can be assured of the structural integrity of the foundation.
A homeowner in Westerlo, NY contacted Adirondack Basement Systems about their damp basement issues. The home itself was built about 50 years ago over a spring. Overtime water would seep through the concrete foundation and into the basement. They purchased a small dehumidifier, but it wasn't powerful enough to keep the area dry. 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!

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.

A customer of ours in Albany, NY reached out to us with concerns about his sinking sidewalk because it had become an unsightly tripping hazard. We used our patented polylevel and Nexus Pro system to lift his sidewalk, and what a transformation it was! Polylevel injection is performed by drilling a small hole into the slab to be lifted and the Polylevel foam is injected under the concrete. The foam fills the voids underneath the concrete and the slab is lifted into place. The foam is quick curing, waterproof, and noninvasive. Nexus Pro is a silicone-based sealant used to seal the joints of the concrete slab. The Nexus Pro can be used with Polylevel and cures in just 60 minutes!!!

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!
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.
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!
