Homeowners in Glens Falls, NY had been experiencing water in their basement for many years. They came to Adirondack Basement Systems knowing at the very least they wanted and needed a perimeter drainage system installed. After addressing their concerns with the Design Specialist, their DS performed a full basement inspection in order to come up with the perfect solution. Along with our patented french drain system
Along with our patented french drain system, the Design Specialist recommended our TripleSafe sump pump system to work together in discharging water out and away from the home. He also found that the basement was quite humid. To combat that concern he suggested our SaniDry dehumidifier. Lastly he recommended our BrightWall, to keep the basement looking brighter and cleaner! The homeowner was grateful for our help, and can now have a dry basement all the time.

New homeowners had purchased a home in Lake Luzerne, NY that had a large vertical crack in the basement wall and was leaking water. Previous homeowners attempted to fix the crack using hydrol cement. This method proved to fail and the new homeowners were looking for a permanent solution.

One of our highly trained waterproofing specialists visited the home and recommended FlexiSpan to the homeowners as a permanent fix.

This basement wall had steadily began bowing outward over the last several years despite being built 30 years ago.

So they contacted Adirondack Basement Systems for their free estimate and the ball started rolling.

Homeowners in Bolton Landing, NY had a partially finished basement and an insufficient waterproofing system. Carpeting in the basement would get wet, which supported mold growth and gave off a musty odor. The homeowners contacted Adirondack Basement Systems for a free estimate with one of our certified basement specialists. We sent one of our specialists out to the home to do a thorough inspection of the basement. They found that the basement was in need of a new sump pump system. Our specialist recommended our SuperSump for their basement needs along with DryTrak perimeter drainage system. DryTrak is an alternative to our WaterGuard and is designed specifically for basements with a monolithic floor that can't be jackhammered. Weep holes are drilled into the base of the concrete walls so water can drain into the DryTrak and is guided to the SuperSump to exit the basement. With this new waterproofing system in place, their basement will stay dry for years to come.
Encapsulating crawl spaces makes a home a healthier place to live and breathe. Up to 50% of the air you breathe comes up from your crawl space. Encapsulation can eliminate old, musty odors, and even prevent mold and mildew issues from arrising, keep pests away, and increases energy efficiency. This happy customer came to us wanting a sump pump and crawl space encapsulation. We used CleanSpace, which is a 20ml plastic sheet material vapor barrier, and installed a sump system. In addition to preventing moisture, outside air and pests from entering your crawl space, CleanSpace's bright white color completely transforms your crawlspace from a dusty, smelly space into a cleaner, more breatheable area.
While crawlspaces may not be the most used part of the home, they play a vital role in the health of the house. If the crawlspace is in rough shape it will affect the rest of your home. This crawlspace’s primary issue was moisture, so our Design Specialist went in to look around and see what potential solutions existed. The plan that they drew up and was agreed upon by the homeowner consisted of an upgrade to its drainage system and some added protection against moisture.
First, our team cleared out some debris that was in the way. Then, a SmartDrain and drainage matting was placed to prevent any intruding water from gathering in the crawlspace and divert it out of the house. Then, CleanSpace was spread along the walls and ground to act as a moisture barrier. Finally, to keep the humidity to a minimum and help improve the air quality not only in the crawlspace, but the entire house as well, we installed a SaniDry Sedona to get the job done.
Crawl spaces can be tough to maneuver sometimes, but they’re vitally important to the health of the house, so giving them the proper care and attention is important. If moisture gets into the crawl space, then that can mean trouble for the air quality and potentially the integrity of the house. This homeowner had issues with water and were looking to have a sump pump installed and for their crawl space to be encapsulated, so they called us in to take a look around and see if that was the best course of action. After getting a firsthand look at the space, our design specialist agreed with the plan with some minor tweaks after meeting with the customer, because at the end of the day, it’s about what they want done; we’re just here to help in any way we can.
First, a SmartSump was installed with some additional products such as an IceGuard and a LawnScape Outlet to help it perform at its highest potential, even in the event of cold weather or a power outage. We take care to measure a proper distance based on the layout of the backyard to gauge where the outlet should be placed so it doesn’t send the water right back into the crawl space.
After the sump pump system was installed, we moved on to insulation, which wasn’t an original concern, but after working with the design specialist the homeowner decided it would be beneficial to the home by keeping heat in, but also by acting as a vapor barrier, keeping moisture and humidity out. The product that was decided on was SilverGlo Wall Insulation and it works great when paired with our CleanSpace system; a very popular and effective vapor barrier that is spread along the walls and floor of the crawl space, giving moisture yet another hurdle to face if it were to try getting into the home. With all these products on the customer’s side, water doesn’t stand a chance of getting in!
This basement was having issues with water seeping in from the walls and ground, leading to small pools forming around the area. After meeting with one of our Design Specialists and walking through the basement with them, the homeowner decided upon one of our most common, effective waterproofing methods. The two primary products used in this job were WaterGuards and sump pumps.
The process started by mapping out where the WaterGuards would be installed and the optimal location for the two sump pumps. WaterGuards run along the joists where the wall meets the floor so they can collect any seeping water coming from either direction and redirect it to the drainage system, so in this case it would go to one of the sump pumps. To install WaterGuards we had to take apart the bottom of the wall and carve out a bit of the floor to provide the proper space needed to fit the product. Once the system was laid down properly and secured, we covered up the gaps and holes we made.
There was already a drainage system in place, so one of the sump pumps could be easily installed into this pre-existing location, which made things easier. Another sump pump was needed, however, to manage the large space and to keep a single pump from being overwhelmed, so we had to create another spot for a pump and hook it up to the drainage system. Two different types of pumps were installed in the end—an UltraSump and a Single Pack—both of which are highly effective and capable of keeping water out of the basement. And with the WaterGuards system’s assistance in collecting invading moisture, this home won’t have to worry about pooling water any more.
No two basements are alike, which means no two jobs are the same, as well. However, when it comes to a complete waterproofing system, the same few products are typically involved because they’re effective and work great together. This project started off like any other, with lots of measurements and planning. A full-fledged diagram of the basement was drawn up by a design so everything is accounted and the installation team knows exactly what to . They took the plan and got to work with the proper products. First, they removed the very bottom portion of the wall where it meets the floor to make room for the . Similarly, they dug out a path for the along portions of the concrete floor. Both these products were then installed and with new concrete and the wall was repatched. Their job is to collect incoming water and direct it to the sump pump, which this home already had, but we upgraded it with a system that top of the line and more than capable of handling high levels of water. With that, the waterproofing system was and this basement no longer feel the constant threat of water over its shoulders!
This foundation support job had two goals: supporting the bowing basement walls and providing a boost to sagging floors. The first step we took was to measure the displacement of both the walls and the ceiling of the basement. The process for this involves taking careful measurements and using lasers to visualize the displacement. Next, we ordered and of the proper height for this specific basement to ensure a tight fit that will effectively support the foundation. The original supports were nothing but cheap wooden beams, so our products were by far an upgrade. are responsible for correcting the bowing walls while the are lifting the floors above and putting a stop to their bounciness. Installation of both these products isn't cumbersome or a nuisance. easily attach right to the inside of the walls, requiring no outside excavation. What made this job a bit interesting, however, is that there was a lip in front of the wall. Thankfully, this didn’t pose a problem for the , which hug the wall from floor to ceiling, providing ample support and correction despite the lip. The , meanwhile, were spread evenly along the middle of the basement to give equal support throughout to the floor. The great thing about products is that not only do they stop the damage from getting worse, also be tightened over time to return the walls and floors to their original position, making both and an all-around fantastic solution to foundation issues your home may be facing.
