A homeowner in Hudson Falls, NY called our office stating that water leaks into their basement through cracks in the floor as well as where the floor and wall meet on two sides of the basement. They currently have a sump pump installed but no water is directed there, so it is of no help. The homeowner scheduled their free estimate and met with one of our trained waterproofing specialists to discover what could be done.
The homeowner decided to upgrade their current sump system to our TripleSafe system and install our WaterGuard french drain system around the perimeter of the basement to guide the water into the sump pit. They now can be assured that their basement will stay dry!
A homeowner in Fort Edward, NY was in the process of finishing their basement and wanted to ensure that the flooring they installed was appropriate for a basement environment. The home was built on a high water table and the previous homeowner constantly had a dehumidifier running. They reached out to Adirondack Basement Systems for a free estimate with one of our certified basement specialists. We sent our design specialist Jon Roz to discuss flooring with the homeowner. After going through our options, the homeowner opted for our Mill Creek Faux Wood flooring in Mahogany. These faux wood panels don't require nails or adhesives and are made of inorganic materials that are waterproof and mold resistant.
A homeowner in Hudson Falls, NY contacted Adirondack Basement Systems about encapsulating their crawlspace. The space was damp and had a musty odor that would come up into the home at times. They were also worried about critters making a home in their crawlspace. We sent one of our crawlspace specialists to do a thorough inspection and provide a free written estimate for encapsulating and waterproofing. CleanSpace is a durable, waterproof, and non-organic vapor barrier. It will never support mold-growth which means the musty odor will vanish. A SmartSump sump pump was decided on in order to drain any water in the crawlspace out and away from the home. The SmartSump is a sump pump that is custom engineered for crawlspaces. With this system in place, the homeowners are guaranteed to have a clean crawlspace!
This customer in Hudson Falls contacted us with worries about his basement walls buckling. We sent out Dave Lacroix, our Certified Design Specialist, to see what was going on in the home.
Cracked or buckling walls can become a severe problem if they aren't fixed, and they can become worse over time. This is why, for this project, we decided to install our CarbonArmor system with ArmorLock. The CarbonArmor system is black stripes of fiber-reinforced polymers that fit tightly against your basement wall. The stripes are 10-times stronger than steel, and will stabilize your basement walls! After the CarbonArmor is installed, we then install the ArmorLock. The ArmorLock secures the CarbonArmor straps to your floor, which allows for quick stabilization, and another anchor point. Our CarbonArmor and ArmorLock system uses similar technology to the U.S. Department of Defense, which they use to reinforce large structures.
Now, our customer doesn't have to worry about the structural integrity of his home anymore. If you think you are having a similar issue, feel free to contact us for a free estimate!
We had a customer in Hudson Falls contact us with an inquiry for new drainage and sump pump options for the commercial property he owns. We sent out our Design Specialist, Dean Gaetano, to take a look around, and recommend the best option for this property.
He decided to install our WaterGuard drainage system. Our WaterGuard system is designed to catch water seepage through walls and any leaks along the wall and floor joint. This will ensure that the property has the same drainage system throughout, and makes it easier to identify if an issue occurred. The benefit of our patented waterproofing system is that it is hidden very well, meaning most people wouldn't even notice it. Along with the drainage system, we installed our WaterGuard Port, allowing for easy access to the system, and our TrenchDrain, which captures water at doorways, stairways, and other potential openings for water to seep in through. These three products work seamlessly together and allow for the systems to function together in unison.
He loved all of the work that was completed and thanked us for making the property dry and safe for the people inside. Whether it is commercial, or residential property, we are here to help! Feel free to call us for a free estimate.
This customer was experiencing structural issues in their home, which could be traced down to the basement. Sizable cracks were visible splintering through the cement bricks of the basement walls. Cracks like this are a sign of an unstable foundation, so it is important to act as soon as possible to prevent serious, permanent damage. The best course of action to repair and protect the walls is to install CarbonArmor. CarbonArmor is made of fiber-reinforced polymers that are ten times stronger than steel while maintaining the proper flexibility to contour securely to the basement walls. This product is fast and effective, providing a reliable solution to stabilize bowing or leaning foundation walls. Playing a complimentary role to the CarbonArmor is a simple WallDefense system whose job it is to fix and protect the walls as well. This duo is the perfect answer for structural support.
With older houses, it’s typically only a matter of time before walls begin to bow or buckle. This homeowner was unfortunately dealing with this problem and also wanted to upgrade their basement window. Luckily, we do both! The first step was to survey the area and determine where to install the PowerBraces—the most effective product to halt bowing walls and provide much-needed support. While we were at it, measurements of the window opening were also carefully taken so the custom-made EverLast window could get made. Once all the measurements were taken and the locations determined, we began installation. The PowerBraces are clean-looking, rust-resistant, and noninvasive, requiring no outside excavation. They also can be tightened over time to help potentially straighten the walls back to their original placement. Finally, we put in the EverLast window, Sunhouse base, and cover to provide a nicer look to the basement, both inside and out, all while helping to keep moisture away and heat from escaping; a great choice for both the eyes and the pocket!
The key to good, healthy air quality in your home is the basement or crawl space. If those areas aren’t properly tended to, it could mean trouble for the rest of the house. This homeowner had concerns about the health of their basement, so they called us in to take a look around and find anything that could use improvement. After a thorough inspection, our design specialist recommended two primary products that the homeowner ended up going with: a TripleSafe Sump System and a SaniDry Sedona.
The SaniDry Sedona is a great dehumidifier that is small enough to fit in virtually any basement or crawl space, but also is one of the most efficient products on the market at combating humidity. With this product installed, not only is the basement’s air quality improved, but so is the rest of the house's. However, there was still more to do to solve the moisture problem. Next in the installation process came the TripleSafe. First, a proper location for the pump is determined. Once that is settled on, we headed outside to measure a safe distance away from the house for the LawnScape Outlet. While yard space is often limited, it’s important for the LawnScape Outlet to be placed far enough from the house and at a location where the water won’t just flow right back into the house. With all the measurements checked carefully, it was time to install! Our team took care with the project, not cutting any corners to ensure each product will function at its highest potential. At the same time, we don’t want to keep the customer waiting and worrying. Thankfully, each product we have is relatively quick and easy to install, providing peace of mind to the homeowner sooner rather than later.
This homeowner made the unfortunate discovery that their basement walls were not only cracking but bowing as well. Thankfully, after our design specialist surveyed the walls, it was decided that no serious work would be needed. It would only take one product to solve the issue: PowerBraces.
The PowerBrace system is a foundation wall repair system designed to stabilize failing basement walls and even has the potential to straighten the buckling or tilting walls over time, so not only is this patented product able to prevent the condition from worsening, but it also has the ability to fix it. Another great thing about the PowerBrace system is that installation wasn't a hassle. No outside excavation was required and it never is. What we did first was take measurements to know what size PowerBraces we’d need then mark along the walls where they would be placed, which also helps us figure out how many we’d need. Then, when it was time for installation, all we had to do was go in, adjust the PowerBraces to fit the wall snug and securely, attach them, and that was it; minimal disruption for a super helpful product. All the components of the PowerBrace system are zinc-coated for rust resistance and have the ability to be tightened, which helps straighten the walls over time.
PowerBrace is perfect for putting a stop to your bowing walls and keeping the condition of your foundation from reaching a level that would require serious, expensive repairs.
This crawl space was suffering from some sagging ceiling and support beams, which not only worsened the condition of the crawl space but the rest of the house as well. The crawl space is kind of like the heart of the house, supporting the home and providing it with clean air. If the crawl space is in trouble, then so is the rest of the house. This homeowner wanted to alleviate some of the pressure that the crawl space endured, so they called on us to lend a hand. We went in, looked over every inch of the crawl space carefully and recommended a series of SmartJacks to help boost the ceiling and take some of the weight off it.
The installation process begins with surveying and measuring. It’s vital to know how high the ceiling is so the SmartJacks with the right height are ordered. Also, the steel piers can’t just be placed haphazardly throughout the crawl space, they need to be installed in optimal locations where they will most effectively support the sinking ceiling. In order to do this, we examined the extent of the sagging beams and then marked off where each SmartJack would go. There were some older support beams scattered around, but they were old, worn, and not in the proper locations, so those had to be removed just before installation to prevent any more damage. With that completed, the prep stage was complete and all that was left was to install. SmartJacks are a relatively easy install process tgat don’t require any overwhelming work. For this home, five SmartJacks were used and aligned with the markers we placed earlier. We then adjusted them to the precise height of the ceiling, fastened them securely to the floor, and the job was done! The SmartJacks will not only help support the ceiling and foundation but also have the opportunity to raise them back to the proper height thanks to their ability to be adjusted over time.
This house was on the older side, as evident by the stone foundation. This style was quite common in the early 1900s, as well as in the centuries prior. Nowadays, it is clear that stone foundations are not sustainable and pose many problems to a home’s health. This basement had 20-30 feet of bowing walls which were causing issues for the rest of the house and threatened with worse consequences if not addressed. Luckily, we had just the product to give the walls some support and boost the foundation back to a sustainable level.
The product we used for this job and many other similar ones was the PowerBrace System. We surveyed the basement, analyzing where the walls had bowed the most and by how much. Then, we marked off precise locations for where to install them, doing so in a way that would allow the weight of the foundation to be evenly distributed. Once the proper size PowerBraces arrived, we cut them to fit perfectly with the walls since no two homes are the same. Then, it was time to put them in! What’s great about PowerBraces is they are a highly effective foundation solution that doesn’t require any excavation or other over the top processes. All we had to do was attach them to the walls in their pre-marked locations and secure them in place. PowerBraces are made of a zinc material so they are water resistant and highly durable. PowerBraces are not only super strong and effective at keeping the walls from bowing any further, but they also have the ability to be tightened and correct the displaced walls back to their original position! PowerBraces are a great, easy solution to buckling walls, able to help old basements get a fresh boost!
