Job Stories From Saratoga County, NY
Water Intrusion in Clifton Park, NY

Eric P. of Clifton Park, NY wanted a clean, safe space in his basement so that he could eventually finish the area off completely in the future.  Eric's basement was just a damp storage space at this time.  His walls were filled with effervescence and although mold was not noticeable as of yet, the entire basement smelled damp and felt humid.  Eric reached out to Adirondack Basement Systems, and with Basement Waterproofing specialist Tim VanKempen, they devised a plan to transform his wet moldy basement in to a useable space. 

Soon after their initial inspection, foreman Christopher Hurley and his crew arrived at Eric's home.  They installed our complete waterproofing system including TrenchDrain, Waterguard, Sump Pump, ThermalDry Insulation and a SaniDry dehumidification system.  WaterGuard and TrenchDrain act as a non-clogging piping system that sits above the soil.  Water passes through the system and eventually runs off into one of our Sump Pumps.  In this case Eric went with our TripleSafe pump, this is the world's MOST reliable pump system, with 1 regular, and 2 back-up pumps.  After the perimeter drain was installed Christopher and crew installed the final product our patented high-performance dehumidification and air filtration system.  The dehumidifier eliminated any damp or musty odors in Eric's basement and solved any problems with mold, allergens, or unfiltered air. 

Now that our work is done Eric’s basement is dry and ready for storage, finishing, or whatever his family and him decide to do with their brand new square footage!

Carbon Armor Solution in Ballston Lake, NY

Mr. "R" of Ballston Lake noticed large cracks forming in the foundation of his garage walls. Concerned with this foundation issue, he wanted to make sure it was resolved to prevent any future structural problems from occurring. After contacting our office, Mr. "R" met with our Design Specialist Bill to inspect the issue further and discuss the best possible solution to fix it.

Bill decided the appropriate solution for Mr. "R"s foundation would be to adhere our Carbon Armor straps to his walls to prevent any further damage from occurring. Carbon fiber is nearly impossible to stretch which allows it to keep concrete walls from bending or bowing inward. Carbon Armor is the perfect repair option if the walls haven't started to slide in at the bottom or lean in at the top. It is 10 times stronger than steel and the ONLY carbon fiber product designed to code American Concrete Institution 440.7R-10. Our product is engineered to be the best in the market!

Mr. "R" was very happy with the results of the Carbon Armor installation done by our foreman Austin and his crew. Now he no longer has to worry about new cracks forming and hindering the stability of his foundation.

Water Seepage Issue in Burnt Hills, NY

Mrs. "C" was experiencing water seepage through a crack in her basement floor. Due to this problem her basement was damp and musty making her eager to find a solution to keep her basement dry all the time. Mrs. "C" contacted our company and set up her free estimate with our Design Specialist Bill to do a detailed inspection and recommend the most effective products for her concerns.

Bill visited Mrs. "C"s home and after a thorough analysis he decided our patented TripleSafe sump pump system in conjunction with the WaterGuard would be best to solve the water issue. Our TripleSafe System uses three powerful pumps, one of which is battery operated to ensure that even when the power is out your pump keeps working! WaterGuard lines the perimeter of your basement to create a track for the water to drain to the sump system. Mrs. "C" also decided to purchase our energy efficient dehumidifier, the SaniDry Sedona. The SaniDry Sedona has over 100 pints per day capacity and drains automatically! It also has a large MERV 8 filter which protects you from mold spores, dust and other particulates that can effect your health. To further assist in keeping the basement dry Mrs. "C" had the CleanSpace System installed. CleanSpace is designed to protect your basement or crawlspace from condensation as well as mold and the cold outside air.

Our foreman Michael and his crew worked hard to create a safe dry basement for Mrs. "C". Now she can enjoy a dry basement rest assured that the air she is breathing within her home is clean and free of mold spores, dust and other particles.

Foundation Crack Repair in Mechanicville, NY

A homeowner in Mechanicville, NY had a vertical crack in his foundation wall that had been there for nearly 11 years. This crack was causing water seepage into the basement; an issue the homeowner could no longer ignore. Since they were in the process of selling their home, they needed to fix the problem permanently and efficiently. The homeowner contacted Adirondack Basement Systems for a free estimate with one of our trained waterproofing specialists. Being a previous customer of ours and knowing about our nationally-backed warranties, the homeowner entrusted us to provide the solution they needed.

Our design specialist recommended FlexiSpan to the homeowner. Unlike hydraulic cements and some epoxies, the special sealant used for FlexiSpan will never dry out or re-crack over time. It will stay bonded with wall movement, and seal the crack permanently so you never have to worry! A pathway for water seepage beneath the sealant can be connected to either a dry well or a perimeter drainage system. The new homeowners can now have peace of mind that the crack will no longer seep in water and create a damp musty environment!

Foundation Repair in Mechanicville, NY

This customer from Mechanicville, NY, contacted us when he noticed cracks in his basement walls. Our Design Specialist, Dave LaCroix, decided that we would repair the cracking in the walls with our patented FlexiSpan crack repair system! This system is actually a three-part process, providing multiple layers of protection. The process begins with applying the sealant along the length of the cracks. After the sealant is applied, a foam is installed on top of that, over the crack. Lastly, an impenetrable membrane sticks to the wall on both sides of the foam strip. This allows any leakage of water through the crack to move down the wall and into the drainage system.

Now, their basement is crack-free, and you would have never known there were cracks there to begin with! If you are worried about cracking in your basement, you can reach out to us today to schedule your free estimate.

FlexiSpan and WellDuct Installation in Mechanicville, NY

No two jobs are the same and thankfully some are easy and simple, requiring no immense renovations to solve the problem. This homeowner's basement wasn’t experiencing any immense flooding, however water getting in remained a looming presence and there were some signs of moisture seeping in, so they wanted to do something about it to ease their mind. After inspecting the basement, our Design Specialist found an easy, effective fix to their water troubles. It was determined that the water was primarily entering through the window, so a WellDuct kit was installed to keep the window well filled with water from flooding into the basement. This product also diverts the water from the window to the interior drainage system. And since the WellDuct kit can be fitted to any window regardless of shape or size, installation is a breeze! Finally, to fix the wall cracks, FlexiSpan foam was used to plug them up and prevent any additional leakage into the basement.

UltraSump Installation in Mechanicville, NY

Not every job has to be a complicated one, but even with the simple jobs, we make sure to take the proper care and time that’s needed to give the customer an effective, full-functioning product that does the jobs it’s meant to do. We're here to help with any job you may have, regardless of size! In this instance, much of typical work that’s needed for putting in a sump system was in place before we got there. The customer already had a Zoeller pump and the plumbing was in place, so all we needed to do was go in and install the UltraSump onto the existing Zoeller and that was that. What a seemingly small project like this accomplished was boost the sump pump system of the basement, protecting the house more effectively from invasive water and keeping it flowing out of the space with no chance of pooling. Even the smallest installation can have a huge impact on the waterproofing system of your home, so never hesitate to see what improvements can be made in your basement!

TripleSafe and WaterGuard Duo in Saratoga Springs, NY

This job highlights two of our most popular products: the TripleSafe and our WaterGuard system. This homeowner had serious concerns about the levels of water able to consistently get into their basement. The area, as evident by the pictures, is rather large, which means more space for water to penetrate and more areas to protect—which is where the TripleSafe and WaterGuards came into play. 

The first step in the process was to go along the walls and lay out the most efficient pathway for the WaterGuards to go. When that is completed and double-checked, the installation team goes in and removes the base part of the wall where it meets the floor and installs the WaterGuard along the joist. WaterGuard collects seeping water from either the walls or floor and directs it to the TripleSafe where it is pumped out of the house and to a safe distance away. And on that note, let’s take a look at the TripleSafe installation process. To start, we decided on a location that would be most efficient for the sump pump based on the layout of the basement and the piping. Next, we head outside and measure a good distance for the LawnScape Outlet so the water flows out of the house and doesn’t just come right back in. With the preliminary measurements and layout completed, all that was left was to install the TripleSafe system and connect it to the WaterguardsWorking in tandem, these two products are a dynamic duo at keeping basements clean and dry!

Garage Polylevel in Ballston Lake, NY

The concrete in this customer’s garage had numerous cracks scattered along the ground, causing large splits and uneven ground. This can spread and cause serious damage to the rest of the area, plus people could easily trip and get hurt. While some may think that the only solution is to completely tear up the concrete and repour it or awkwardly fill in cracks in a way that would ultimately only act as a temporary solution, there’s actually a super quick, simple solution and it’s on display in this job here! 

The way concrete splits, rises, and sinks chaotically like this is common and happens in a number of ways, but what it boils down to is the ground underneath becomes unstable and shifts underneath the concrete, causing rifts. Cold weather and other outside influences can also be a factor in widening cracks. Our solution for this problem? Polylevel 

Polyleveling is a super simple, clean, and effective way to even out concrete and fill in the gaps. The process started by assessing the area, determining what cracks may need direct fillings and what could be corrected with Polylevel. Next, we cleared out the garage and brought in our super noninvasive gear. Then, we drill a series of holes into the concrete, utilizing the pre-existing, effective method of concrete lifting by means of a mortar-based mixture. However, Polylevel takes it a step further by incorporating two-part expanding foam that was specially engineered to potentially restore the concrete surface quickly and permanently without disruption. Once that was completed, all that remains is to let it dry! Then, in a matter of days, there will hardly be signs any work was done! No longer will uneven concrete be a problem for this homeowner’s garage.

Easy Waterproofing Solution in Mechanicville, NY

 This was a simple waterproofing job involving a mere two products. The basement was an older style, built out of mismatched stones that allow water to easily get in. The space wasn’t really used for much, so instead of going overboard with a huge revitalization, all we and the homeowner decided upon was something that would keep the little bits of water flowing out of the house and the humidity to a minimum. The products selected? SuperSumps and a SaniDry Sedona. 

The SuperSump is a very reliable sump pump that can handle sizable amounts of water and gives the homeowner peace of mind. We also included an IceGuard as an attachment to help the SuperSump function properly even in freezing temperatures. Two SuperSumps were installed in opposite locations in the basement to maintain a well-rounded pumping system within the space. There was already a spot where a pump originally was, so we simply installed one right where the old one was. We placed the pump discharge location far enough away from the house to keep the water from flowing right back in and repeating a viscous cycle. As for the SaniDry Sedona, this dehumidifier is compact yet highly effective at taking the moisture out of the air and keeping the house from constantly having sticky, musty air. 50% of all air in the home originates from the basement so it is important to keep the area dry and clean; something this homeowner now has thanks to these two fantastic products.

CleanSpace-Drainage Matting Dynamic Duo in Porter Corners, NY

The crawl space was rather old and musty, in much need of an upgrade. To get into the crawl space, there was a small access point on the outside of the house that a single person could fit in at a time. Our Design Specialist was the first one in, taking time to look over the area to check for damage and ways to improve the conditions. There was an existing vapor barrier, but it was in rough shape and needed to be replaced. Afterwards, they met with the homeowner and went over some potential courses of action. Thankfully, there wasn’t any structural damage to the foundation so the focus could be entirely on waterproofing. A few products were agreed upon and determined to be perfect for protecting this crawl space; then it was time to install! 

First, our team removed the old, ineffective vapor barrier to make room for the new products. Next, our team measured, cut, and laid out drainage matting on the floor of the crawl space. Drainage matting helps facilitate incoming moisture and keep it from pooling. Laid over the drainage matting was our CleanSpace system that is able to go on both the walls and floor. CleanSpace is a 7-layer polyethylene composition that is highly durable and effective vapor barrier perfect for assisting the drainage matting in keeping moisture at bay. These two products are a dynamic duo perfect for any crawl space that may need some strong waterproofing!

WaterGuards and TripleSafe Tandem in Porter Corners, NY

This homeowner was having issues with pooling water and damp spots in their basement. Persistent problems like this arise the older a basement gets and is an inevitability with any home. With this in mind, it’s important to have a good waterproofing system in place and that’s where we come in! Our Design Specialist kicked off the process by meeting with the homeowner and going over every inch of the basement, keeping them informed of what the issues were, what is causing said issues, and potential remedies. With the customer included the entire way, a plan was drawn up, including all the products that’d be used to create the waterproofing system. Then, it was passed off to the install team! 

The first product up was WaterGuard. To put in the WaterGuards, the team had to clear out some space where the walls meet the floor because the WaterGuard system is all about collecting water as it comes in through the walls and floors. To cover up and protect the WaterGuards (and while sprucing up the look of the system) DryTrak was installed over it to keep it from being exposed. The WaterGuards then transport the water to the TripleSafe—one of the most reliable, powerful sump pumps on the market. The TripleSafe can handle high-volumes of water with ease, thanks to its tri-pump system that automatically switches depending on how much water is coming in. It then sends the water out through the discharge pipe we hooked up and buried in the yard, transporting the water to a proper distance away where it won’t return. These two products were the focal point of the project and it’s thanks to them, in conjunction with some other minor products, that this basement’s waterproofing system is in tip top shape, ready to take on any water that may come its way.

Home Addition Floor Support in Ballston Spa, NY

Homes are constantly a work in progress; repairs are made, renovations are done, additions are created—a lot goes in to making a house exactly what you want. Unfortunately, complications often arise along the way. This homeowner added a family room off the back of their house, situated over the crawl space below. Over time, the floor closest to where the room connects to the original house began to sag and was in desperate need of stability. Our design specialist went in and checked out to what extent the floor had drooped as well as how much support it would need from underneath. They recommended the one product that could effectively stabilize the foundation and raise the floor back to its original level: SmartJacks. 

Passing the job off to the installation crew, it became their job to take more precise measurements of the crawl space and map out the most efficient positioning's for the series of SmartJacks. In total, there were ten SmartJacks included, all custom-fit to this particular crawl space. The team installed a supplemental beam across the crawl space then placed the SmartJacks snugly underneath to give the ceiling and foundation (and floor above) a strong, durable pier system it could rely on. And with their ability to be tightened, SmartJacks can not only provide support for the foundation, but also raise the floor to its proper position at the same time. SmartJacks are a great product to fix those sagging floors with little to no intrusion whatsoever!

Easy Waterproofing of an Old Basement in Round Lake, NY

This customer had an older style of basement that was widely used when homes were being built in this region decades ago. Stone walls may have seemed like a good, easy idea at the time, but they are highly ineffective at keeping water out and your basement dry. Pooling water and damage was a problem for this basement in particular and the homeowner wanted protection that their basement couldn’t provide on its own. To help them out, we installed one of our tried and true waterproofing systems! 

The first step in this process was to survey the basement and determine where the water was primarily coming in from (if there was a singular spot), and how serious the invasion was. Afterwards, we determined an area for the sump pump to be placed and mapped out the most efficient path for the discharge pipe to run from the basement and out to a distance away where the water can’t flow right back towards the house. Then, with the prepwork completed, it was time to install. 

To keep the persistent water at bay, we installed CleanSpace on the walls and ground to act as a vapor barrier, keeping moisture from seeping through and pooling. Underneath the CleanSpace on the floor, we installed drainage matting to help facilitate the water to the sump pump, which in this case, was a TripleSafe. The TripleSafe sump pump is a top of the line product, capable of handling high levels of water. And with its automatic pump-switching, WaterWatch Alarm, and backup battery, the homeowner won’t have to ever worry about the TripleSafe failing on them. With these three products working together, water won’t be a worry in this basement ever again.

Basement-Crawl Space Hybrid Revitalization in Round Lake, NY

This space is one of those hybrids between a basement and a crawl space that is commonly seen throughout our area. We got a call from the homeowner that the area constantly took on water whenever it rained and they were looking to keep that from consistently happening. Water damage is no joke and can have dire consequences on a house despite it only seemingly affecting a single space—one that hardly anyone ever goes to, nonetheless. One of our experienced design specialists went in and surveyed the basement, assessing the damage and determining the steps needed to drastically improve its condition to a level the homeowner can feel safe, satisfied, and healthy. After the design specialist’s walkthrough, it was determined that not only would this space need to be waterproofed, but also receive some foundational boost. 

This job, like many, started with a bit of cleanup. There was water and debris that was in the way so we had to get that removed before we could start the rest of our prepworkOnce that was completed, we began taking precise measurements of the walls and floor to gauge the amount of CleanSpace we’d need as well as how much the foundation has settled and what size SmartJack would be needed. With the measurements gathered and double-checked, we then mapped out a setup for where everything would go. It was a tight fit, but we needed to find room for the CleanSpace, Drainage Matting, TripleSafe, and SmartJacksMuch of this planning depended on the TripleSafe and the SmartJacks because the TripleSafe always needs to be in an optimal position for the discharge pipes to exit the house and dispose of the water. The SmartJacks need to be placed perfectly to evenly distribute the weight of the house above, so careful planning is required. Once the locations are all set, it’s time to install!  

We first got the TripleSafe and its discharge pipes in place. This product is the heart of the waterproofing system, working tirelessly to keep any invading water from pooling and causing damage. It’s tri-pump system allows it to handle high volumes of water, meaning it can be relied on during any type of weather. After the TripleSafe came the SmartJacks. The SmartJacks are placed evenly around the basement to hoist up the floor and take some of the pressure off of the foundation. Not only do SmartJacks keep the foundation from settling any more but it also can lift the floors back to their original position. Afterwards came the Drainage Matting and the CleanSpaceThe Drainage Matting goes in first, placed on the floor of the basement, and helps facilitate seeping moisture to the TripleSafe. The CleanSpace then goes over the top of the Drainage Matting and along the walls to act as a vapor barrier to keep the invading water under control.  All in all, this is a highly effective system that solved a number of issues this home was facing.

Small EverLast Window Replacement in Saratoga Springs, NY

Windows are an important part of any basement. Not only do they provide natural light and a nice aesthetic, but they also play a vital role in keeping the house dry and insulated. When a basement window (or any window for that matter) grows old, gaps and cracks appear, allowing heat to escape and water to enter, posing problems for the home on two fronts. This customer was not happy with the condition their windows were in so they called us to take a look and see how we could help. 

The job started with the typical rounds of surveying and measuring. We checked the condition each window was in and gauged how displaced they were from their original positioning and how bad the gaps were. We also measured the precise size of the windowsills, so we ordered replacements with the exact dimensions needed. Every window is custom-ordered because it’d make no sense to try and fit a window to every basement—each sill is different! Once our measurements are checked and double-checked, we ordered the replacement EverLast windows. When they arrived, we took out the old windows and installed the new EverLast windows, securing them tightly in the sill to provide the best protection from the elements. Not only are EverLast windows a great choice to insulate and seal, but they also add a fresh look to the basement!

The PowerBrace installation process began with more measuring, followed by precise mapping. The job doesn’t require any outside excavation or intrusive work, giving you peace of mind in that department. Our production team marked off the location of where each PowerBrace would be attached to the wall, making sure they’re evenly distributed to keep one side from getting overwhelmed by too much pressure. Once everything is set and double-checked, we bring in the proper sized PowerBraces and shave them down to allow them to be a perfect fit in the basement. Finally, we attach them to their designated spots on the wall and tighten them. With that, the walls won’t buckle any further and since PowerBraces can be tightened, the walls can even be returned to their original placement. PowerBraces are a strong, highly durable and reliable solution to foundation troubles. If your basement walls are showing signs of bowing, look no further than PowerBraces!

Bigger, Beautiful Basement Window Upgrade in Ballston Lake, NY

EverLast window installation can take time, but it’s well worth the wait. This job started out with a conversation between the homeowner and one of our certified design specialists. The homeowner had a pre-existing basement window, but wanted to get it replaced with a larger one—not a problem for us! The design specialist looked over the area—both inside and outside the house—measured the correct window size (double checking at every step) gave an estimate, then passed it off to our installation team.  

 

Once the custom-made windows were in, our team got to work clearing out an area in the yard for where the window and its RockWell and covering would be. A RockWell is a great product to have to keep the window protected against inclement weather and other acts of nature. With the area clear, the team removed the old window and cut out space for the new, larger one. Then, they installed the window, making sure it was a tight seal so no water or animals can get in (or heat can escape). After the window is sealed, the RockWell and its covering were attached. We then double-checked each product, ensuring that it’s properly installed and that there are no defects. Once completed, we cleaned up the mess we made, filling in the excavated dirt so grass can start growing back, and dusting away any other things we may have left around inside. And with that, this home now has an updated, beautiful window that not only adds a bit to the aesthetic of the house, but also provides it with a nice layer of protection from the elements.

Bigger EverLast Window Replacement in Gansevoort, NY

Windows play a big role in a home; both on the main floors and the basement. This homeowner had a nicely finished basement, but they had an old, worn window that needed replacing. If left to deteriorate, basement windows can become a prime location for water to enter and for heat to escape, causing damage to the basement and the bank account. After meeting with one of our certified design specialists and going over the area, a plan for a replacement EverLast window was drawn up with the owner of the home. They also wanted a bigger window to allow for more light to get through and to aesthetically improve the space, which was no problem at all. Careful measurements were taken and a custom window was ordered. Once it arrived, our install team took their time to ensure the window was a perfect fit in the sill, not leaving room for any sort of opening. The EverLast window was sealed in place and then the team moved outside to create room for a RockWell system to protect the EverLast. The RockWell not only does a great job of keeping the window from being damaged, but it has key safety features that prevent anyone from accidentally falling in and getting hurt. And with that, the job was complete! No longer will windows be a weak point for this basement!

Basement Window Enhancement in Waterford, NY

Window replacements aren’t always as simple as getting a new one in the same size and inserting it where the old one was. There’s instances where a larger window may be more beneficial—especially if you want to get more natural light into your basement or whatever other reason you may have. The process to get a larger window installed began by assessing the pre-existing windowsill and mapping out the dimensions of the replacement window to gauge how much of the wall would have to be cut out to allot the proper space. One unique aspect of this job was the A/C unit for the house was ever so slightly in the way, so that had to get moved before the job could be done. After that was taken care of, we went around to the outside of the house and dig out space for us to work and insert the window, after we sliced open the wall, as well as the other products paired with it. We sealed the window in, checking every corner and edge for any openings, filling them in if they’re discovered. Then, we installed the RockWell and covering, which protects the window from getting damaged by the elements, animals, or people. Once all the products were properly installed, we filled in the dirt and cleaned up the mess we made, leaving the homeowner with a brand new window that not only makes the home look nicer, but also keeps water out and heat in much more efficiently than the old window.

Sleek Waterproofing System in Corinth, NY

This basement was in need of a complete waterproofing system. One of our certified design specialists went over the area with the homeowner, showing them where and how the water was getting in. They then formulated a plan that would remedy this issue. With the homeowner’s approval, the job was then handed off to the installation team.  

The first step was preparing the basement for the WaterGuard. Since the WaterGuards are placed where the floor meets the walls, a portion of each had to be removed. The WaterGuards were then secured in place and we covered up the areas we had to originally remove. The WaterGuards help collect water seeping in from the outside soil and redirect it to the sump pump, which we upgraded. The old one was hardly effective anymore, so we enhanced the waterproofing system with a TripleSafe sump pump, which is top of its class, capable of handling even those intense Northeast thunderstorms. Finally, as a finishing touch, we placed CleanSpace along all the walls to act as a vapor barrier. Not only is CleanSpace super durable and effective, but it’s also noninvasive. As you can see in the photos, it perfectly contours around anything that may be along the walls. And with that, this basement now has effective, lasting protection against water!

Bowing Wall Correction in Hadley, NY

Foundation settlement, unfortunately, is an inescapable issue. Over time, the soil around any structure is going to shift. Problems that often arise because of this movement include cracks in the walls (both in the basement, upstairs, and outside), bouncy or sagging floors, and bowing walls. This photo series tells the story of the latter. The first step in correcting buckling or bowing walls was to measure the extent of the displacement. This information helped determine what product is right for the job. In the case of this basement, the walls were certainly bowing and based on the inspection, the product that was required was PowerBraces. Using tape, exact locations were marked along the wall, spaced out properly so the weight distribution would be even. If there is any error during the pre-planning, then the entire system could fail, so our team was very precise and took their time. Next, PowerBraces of the proper size were custom-cut to perfectly fit the basement walls. Then, the braces were attached directly to the walls with very little intrusion to the space. The PowerBraces are then tightened and the job was done. This system will keep the walls from bowing any further and correct them back to their original position over time. PowerBraces are strong, reliable, and the perfect answer to buckling or bowing walls.
