Flooring treatments that work well upstairs can be a disaster in the basement, especially if wood “sleepers” or underlayment is used. Instead of risking mold and moisture damage with “above-grade” materials, choose our ThermalDry flooring system. Made from high-strength PVC plastic (just like plumbing pipe), ThermalDry flooring tiles won’t attract mold and can’t be damaged by moisture. This customer in Schenectady, New York has chosen our wood parquet style of tile for their basement!

Basement Waterproofing and Crawl Space Repair Experts Serving Schenectady

When kept in good condition, your basement can provide a safe space for storage and appliances. However, when water gets in - not unlikely because of the high amount of precipitation in Schenectady - your basement can quickly deteriorate into a moldy mess. Here at Adirondack Basement Systems, we have nearly two decades of experience fixing wet basement and crawl space problems for Schenectady homeowners. We are a local, family-owned contractor dedicated to providing our customers with the best possible experience.

Large pools of water in your basement or crawl space are easy to spot, but a much smaller amount of water can still cause considerable harm. If you've noticed deposits on concrete walls or small leaks in walls or floors, that in and of itself is worth getting checked out.

Adirondack Basement Systems specializes in basement waterproofing solutions for all kinds of water sources. As a part of the Basement Systems dealer network, all of our products are warrantied and have been tested in thousands of homes across the country. Some of the basement waterproofing products we have to offer include:

  • Sump pumps
  • Drain systems
  • Dehumidifiers
  • Waterproof basement floors and walls
  • And more!

In addition to our basement solutions, we also offer crawl space versions of many of these products, including a crawl space vapor barrier that covers walls and floors to protect against the air outside. Crawl spaces are also often used for storage and contain pipes, so it's just as important to protect this space as your basement. Adirondack Basement Systems is here to help with all of your basement waterproofing and crawl space encapsulation and repair needs!

Schenectady, New York Foundation Repair

In addition to our basement and crawl space services, we also excel in foundation repair. Your foundation is a source of great value for your home, and if there are any issues, it's best to act sooner rather than later. Eventually, your foundation could totally fail - and no interested buyer is going to overlook scary foundation problems.

Adirondack Basement Systems makes use of Foundation Supportworks products for our foundation projects. This network hires structural and geotechnical engineers to design and test every product we use, and there are hundreds of Foundation Supportworks dealers across the nation just like us who all trust these solutions. Our foundation repair solutions include:

  • Foundation pier systems
  • Wall anchors
  • Wall braces
  • Crawl space support jacks
  • Helical deck piers

Depending on various factors such as the type and weight of the structure, the depth required to reach stable soil, and the space available around the home, Adirondack Basement Systems will assess which solutions will provide the most benefit for you. We will never try to sell you something you don't need! Thousands of customers have come to us for foundation repair, and we're confident we can solve your concerns as well.

Concrete Repair and Concrete Leveling Solutions

Do you have bumps or cracks in your driveway, sidewalk, or pool deck? If so, concrete slab settlement is usually to blame. Not only does this kind of settlement make your property an eyesore, but it can also create tripping hazards for guests and passers-by.

Adirondack Basement Systems uses PolyLevel® for all of our concrete leveling services. Engineered by industry-leading specialists, PolyLevel® uses a polyurethane foam that's eco-friendly to raise and level heavy concrete. There are different types available depending on your property's conditions, and best of all, the applicable area is usually ready for normal use after just 15 minutes.

We also use NexusPro as a secure cracked concrete repair solution. NexusPro is a flexible concrete sealant that fixes cracks and joints while resisting UV rays, extreme weather, temperature fluctuations, and more to provide a long-lasting repair that secures your home's image and value for a lifetime!

After utilizing our concrete repair solutions, extend your concrete's life by 3 to 5 times overall with the SealantPro concrete sealant.

Job Stories From Schenectady, NY
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!

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!

Garage Concrete Lift in Schenectady, NY

This homeowner called us because their garage had some cracks and the near right corner closest to the driveway had started to sink a bit. They wanted to correct the problem before it got any worse, so we recommended PolyLevel. 

The installation process began with us inspecting the cracks and measuring how much the concrete had sunk. This helps us determine where it’d be most effective to drill holes into the concrete slabs and how much mixture would be needed to lift said slab back to its proper level. After the prep work was completed, we came back with our installation crew and readied our noninvasive gear to get started. The garage was cleared out to ensure nothing got in the way and that nothing interferes with the Polyleveling. The process itself involves drilling a series of tiny holes into the concrete and pumping a specially engineered mixture that combines the pre-existing “mudjacking” method with a two-part expanding foam that helps permanently stabilize and lift the concrete. After a quick dry time, all we needed to do was a bit of cleanup and this garage was back to where it needed to be!

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!

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.

New basement flooring in Schenectady, NY

Sinking concrete steps in Schenectady, NY

Sinking concrete steps are unsightly, but also can pose a tripping hazard. This happy customer came to us with concerns about his sinking steps and we were able to give him a solution in no time with patented PolyLevel. We inject beneath concrete slabs, driveways, sidewalks, pool decks, and porches. PolyLevel is a high density polyurethane that can lift slabs, correct unevenness, and remove tripping hazards and remove eyesores.

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.

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.
