SunHouse window wells are installed with covers allowing light in but preventing water and debris in. They look cleaner than ordinary metal wells too!

Job Stories From Schenectady County, NY
A Better Quality Sump System in Schenectady, NY

A homeowner in Schenectady, NY  had a sump pump in his basement that wasn't working properly. The basement had flooded twice due to failures, so the homeowner decided it was time to find a permanent solution and invest in a quality sump pump. They contacted Adirondack Basement Systems for a free estimate after doing research online and reading about our sump systems. One of our Design Specialists met with the homeowner to inspect their basement and discuss which of our sump systems would best suit their needs.

The TripleSafe Sump System was perfect for this basement as the homeowner would be assured of no failure. This system features 2 powerful pumps and a third battery back up pump all encased within a liner that filters out sediment with a sealed cover. The cover prevents moisture from entering the basement and wreaking havoc with mildew. With this new system they no longer have to worry about a flooded basement.

Waterproofing Installation in Schenectady, NY

Homeowners in Schenectady, NY had a very damp basement that they were looking to make dry. They met with one of our Certified Basement Specialists to receive a FREE estimate on the steps it would take to make their basement dry. He did a thorough inspection of the basement and found that there was moisture seeping through the walls and black mold growing in some places. After going through the homeowners' goals, he provided them an estimate with the different products he recommended for waterproofing their basement.

We installed CleanSpace vapor barrier on the walls to prevent moisture seeping through the walls and growing mold. CleanSpace is made from an inorganic material so it can't support any type of mold-growth which helps keep your basement clean and healthy. To prevent any further water from entering the basement, we installed a SuperSump with a WaterGuard perimeter drainage system. Lastly, a SaniDry XP was installed to help control humidity levels and make the space healthy to breathe in.

New basement flooring in Schenectady, NY

Periodic water seepage led to this customer wanting to install new, nicer flooring in her basement. Originally, carpet was put down over an old concrete floor. Our Design Specialist visited with the customer and showed her all of her options, and she chose mocha and dark walnut plank flooring. She was ecstatic with her results!

New Basement Walls in Delanson, NY

A customer of ours contacted us to inquire about wall options to make their basement more modern and updated. The Design Specialist suggested Everlast wall panels, which are 197% Stronger than drywall with stud construction. No studs or special contraptions are needed, and they are highly dent resistant. Partition panels are finished on both sides.

We also installed SilverGlo™, an expanded polystyrene foam insulation that's been infused with graphite during its creation to improve its insular ability by 24%. Combined with its silver radiant heat barrier on the visible surface, it provides an insulation rating of R-11 on your walls.

CleanSpace Vapor Barrier in Schenectady, NY

Many people tend to overlook the importance of the crawl space when thinking about the health of their house. When it comes to air quality in particular, the crawl space is vital. Half of the air in the home originates from the basement or crawl space, so if that area of the home is in bad shape, then it could lead to problems throughout.  

A common problem homeowners face when dealing with their crawl space is moisture. Unprotected crawl spaces give water easy access inside, causing high humidity, damp air, and damage. One great product to keep moisture from entering is our CleanSpace system. CleanSpace is 20mm thick, comprised of a 7-layer polyethylene, meaning it’s super durable. CleanSpace acts as a vapor barrier to not only keep moisture out, but as an added bonus it also keeps heat in. Installation of this product for this crawl space (and any other job) is simple and easy. We start by gaining access to the crawl space and survey the area, taking careful, precise measurements of the walls and floor to gauge how much CleanSpace will be needed and how it will need to be cut. As evident by the first photo, sometimes the crawl spaces can be difficult to get in and out of, but it's no trouble for us! Once the prepwork was completed, our installation team ordered the proper amount of CleanSpace lining, then went in to lay it out in the crawl space. Once the desired area was covered and secured, we added some drainage matting to help deter any water that happens to find its way in and with that final touch the job was complete; a simple, effective installation that provides great protection from invading moisture.

CarbonArmor Installation in Schenectady, NY

CarbonArmor was the name of the game for this job. The homeowner was experiencing foundation issues and it was showing up in the form of bowing walls, which is what made CarbonArmor the perfect answer to this problem.  

The first step in the CarbonArmor installation process was to assess the walls and gauge just how much they’ve moved and how much support they would need. Then, we marked and measured precise locations for where the CarbonArmor would go. Once that was finished and everything is double-checked, it was time to place the CarbonArmor. This product is great because not only does it have ten times the strength of steel thanks to its fiber-reinforced polymers, but the installation process is super quick and the cure time is quite short, meaning it’ll be finished and working shortly after it’s placed along the walls. Also, despite its great strength, CarbonArmor is flexible and has the ability to mold to any wall. Finally, even though this product is already pretty noninvasive, the homeowner can totally cover it up with paint or whatever else they’d like to do to match the rest of the basement. CarbonArmor is a super helpful, unobtrusive solution to foundation problems in your home!

Waterproofing/Foundational Support Combo Job in Schenectady, NY

This customer was having difficulties with both their foundation and a wet basement. Let’s look first at the waterproofing system and the steps we took to protect this basement from invading moisture.  

Upon first glance, it was evident that water had its way with this basement for quite some time. The walls and floors both had signs of water damage, along with structural issues (more on that later). The first thing we did was set up a WaterGuard system paired with one of our TripleSafe sump pumps. The WaterGuards were installed at the footing of the walls, creating an indoor gutter system of sorts that wraps around the perimeter of the basement, collecting any moisture that seeps in through the walls or floor and redirects it to the TripleSafe. This house had a pre-existing pump, but it could not handle the amount of water that was coming in, which is why we chose to remove the old one and replace it with a TripleSafe. The TripleSafe is a top-of-the-line product, capable of handling high volumes of water and isn’t something that you need to be constantly worried about failing even in cold weather or a blackout due to its built-in backup battery and the IceGuard—an add-on frequently paired with the TripleSafe to give it protection from temperatures below freezing. Then, to wrap up the waterproofing portion of the job, we installed a floor-to-ceiling CleanSpace system to act as a vapor barrier, keeping moisture at bay and redirecting it into the WaterGuards below, all while brightening up the look of the basement a bit. 

Now for the foundational portion of this job. The most noticeable issues were some sagging floors, bowing walls, and cracks between the individual blocks of the basement. While the waterproofing system involved a decent number of products, the foundation support only required two: PowerBraces and SmartJacks. The PowerBraces were installed to correct the slightly bowing walls, providing extra support and even the opportunity to set the walls back to their original position. A series of four PowerBraces were secured right over the CleanSpace with no added hassle or serious labor; all we had to do was get the right size and fasten them in their proper place. SmartJacks work in a similar way to PowerBraces except their job is to help with saggy, bouncy floors above. As foundations settle, the floors often get shifted out of place or start to drop inwards ever so slightly and can lead to more serious issues if not addressed in a timely manner. What the SmartJacks do is get underneath the floors and act as piers to hold the foundation steady. And like PowerBraces, they are fully adjustable which allows them to be tightened over time and lift the floors back to the correct level.  

This home is greatly protected on all fronts now, thanks to both their new waterproofing system and foundational support!

Beautiful Window Upgrade in Glenville, NY

This customer had a small basement window that was a bit on the older side and they wanted to upgrade and make it bigger with more protection. We surveyed the house, both on the inside and out, to determine if it was doable. We then recommended some products and conversed with the homeowner to create a plan that satisfied them. The end result was a large EverLast window paired with a RockWell and a covering.  

 

The house had a block foundation which did not pose a problem for installing a larger window. On the outside of the home, the soil was mainly loam and would be kept primarily on site after excavation at the owner’s request to help level a portion of the backyard in the future for a patio. We dug out a general area so we had room to work on the outside of the house. We carefully measured on both the inside and the outside, mapping out the proper dimensions for the EverLast window on the foundation. Next, we took a step back and planned out the location of the RockWell and covering based on the spot of the window. We then got the custom window order in and once that arrived, we cut out a new sill in the foundation and installed the window, making sure it was a perfect fit and that no water could get in and no heat could escape. Following that, we moved outside and installed the RockWell and covering, then filled in the area we dug out and evened out the surface so grass can start growing back. And the job was completed! The homeowner now has a beautiful EverLast window system that brightens up the look of the basement and more efficiently protects it from the elements!

Bowing Wall Solution in Schenectady, NY

PowerBraces are a great product for supporting bowing basement walls and the installation process isn’t complicated by any means! The process started with measuring the displacement of the wall to gauge the extent of the damage, along with which walls are suffering the most. Next, more measurement is done to set up a proposed layout for how many PowerBraces would be needed and where they would need to be placed to keep the weight of the foundation distributed evenly. Once the planning stage was completed, the installation team got to work installing the PowerBraces in their marked locations. PowerBraces don’t cause any disruption to the basement. Some other foundation solutions require outside excavation, but PowerBraces doesn’t! This product attaches right to the inside of the basement walls and immediately provides much-needed support to the foundation, taking the strain off of the existing walls, stopping them from buckling any further. PowerBraces can also be tightened over time and correct the walls back to their original position, making this product an all-around great choice for any basement experiencing foundation troubles!

Block Foundation Support in Schenectady, NY

CarbonArmor is a unique, interesting block foundation solution.  Each type of foundation requires a different approach and set of products to get the job done, which is why it’s important for our design specialists to be directly involved, investigating every aspect of the basement to gauge what needs to happen. Once they got a plan in place and went over their proposed solution with the homeowner, they passed the job off to the installation team. 

 

The team marked off locations for where each strip of CarbonArmor was to go. Like our PowerBrace system, CarbonArmor has to be properly spaced out to keep one area from taking on too much weight and collapsing under the pressure of the house. After that prep work was completed, they carefully applied the CarbonArmor to the selected locations. CarbonArmor is super strong, yet takes up no room in your basement. It attaches right to the wall and you can put anything you want over it, whether it be insulation, walls for basement finishing, or even paint! Regardless of what the homeowner chose to do with their basement, CarbonArmor would be there to support their foundation. With its fiber-reinforced polymers, CarbonArmor is strong and reliable; the perfect choice for giving block foundations a boost.

Complete Waterproofing System in Niskayuna, NY

Waterproofing systems come in all different shapes, designs, and sizes, but the principles behind them remain constant. One of our certified design specialists inspected the basement, checking it for water entry points and mapped out a system that would solve all the homeowner’s issues pertaining to water entering their basement. The design specialist presented that plan to them and after they agreed to the terms, the job was passed on to the installation team. The first step for them was to clear an opening at the base of the walls where they meet the floor to make room for the WaterGuard. WaterGuard’s job is to collect any water seeping in from the walls and redirect in to the sump pump. WaterGuard is the primary product used for this job, but when there are areas of the basement walls that can’t be reached, like in this home with the stairs leading down to the basement, TrenchDrain is used. TrenchDrain is basically the same as WaterGuard except it is installed on the open floor as opposed to the base of the wall. These two products send water to the sump pump, which sends it out of the house and to a distance far enough away that it doesn’t come running right back. Finally, BrightWall was placed along all the basement walls to act as a protective barrier and insulator. BrightWall is also a good product to install if you are planning on finishing your basement. With this system in place, the homeowner can now rest easy knowing their basement is fully waterproofed!

WaterGuard and Triple Safe Combo in Schenectady, NY

This basement was experiencing high amounts of water coming in, primarily from the bottom corners of the wall, causing small puddles to form all around. Consistent levels of water like this basement experienced leads to serious damage and deterioration. It’s important to address the issue before the problem gets worse and the amount of work it would take to correct the issue skyrockets. We surveyed the basement, going over every corner, determining where the water was coming in and to what extent. A plan of action was then drawn up and presented to the homeowner. A well-rounded waterpoofing system involving WaterGuard and a TripleSafe was proposed and approved. The installation team got to work as soon as possible, beginning by removing the bottom portions of the walls and the floor underneath those segments to make room for the WaterGuard. WaterGuard acts as a facilitator for water coming in from the outside soil. It then directs the water through its system to the sump pump where it’s sent out to a proper distance away from the home where it won’t come flowing right back in and negating all the hard work. There was already a sump pump in the home, so installation of the new TripleSafe was easier, able to go right where the old apparatus was. After that was hooked up to the exterior discharge and WaterGuard, the team replaced the pieces of the wall they removed and cleaned up any messes they made, bringing the project to an end! Now, this basement is protected from even the worst New York storms!
