    Customer Testimonial

              It's not my primary residence, but when I left a day after they finished the job my wife and I were extremely pleased with the job. Fernando's work was clean, precise, and professional. He cleaned up his mess and left the work site as clean as it was before he arrived.

    Tiffani L. of Nashville, TN

    Customer Testimonial

              I appreciate that Fernando hastily came to my house when my basement was filling with water. He had a quick solution for the problem, installed what he could at that moment in time- a temporary pump, and will be returning tomorrow to make sure the permanent pump got installed. He was able to do all of this on his off time. He really made my customer experience great!

    Radon Mitigation System Installed in Bowling Green, KY

    Radioactive radon gas is a silent killer that can make its way into any house, permeating through the soil and through foundation cracks. Radon emanates naturally from soil and rock, so no building is immune to radon contamination.

    The Bowling Green couple had Frontier Basement Systems come by to install our Radon Mitigation System. 
    The typical system consists of a large diameter plastic pipe that connects the air beneath your foundation to the outdoors.
    An in-line fan sucks radon-rich air from beneath your foundation and expels this hazardous air to the exterior.

    If your home sits on a concrete slab, crawlspace, or basement foundation, high concentrations of radon are possible. Don't wait until it's too late to test for radon, call us today to get a free quote by specialists!

    Heavy-Duty EverLast Crawl Space Door Installed in Mount Juliet, TN

    This Tennessee home was on its way to a fabulous encapsulation makeover, but first, we needed to install the EverLast crawl space door!
    A majority of homes' crawl space doors are wooden, warped or just plain useless. The doors of our crawl spaces are vital in keeping out rodent pests and the outside air (which is full of moisture).
    The EverLast door is made out of 1/2-in.-thick PVC plastic that is just about indestructible, so you never have to worry about your crawl space door cracking, shrinking, or warping. Also, your crawl space will be protected from outside conditions, such as rainstorms, thanks to the industrial strength weatherstripping.

    Encapsulated Crawl Space in Lewisburg, KY

    This Kentucky family was having some mold and water pooling issues in their crawl space. They called us to encapsulate their crawl space and make it healthy!
    We used a few of our best products:
    1. CleanSpace Drainage Matting- provides a channel for water to find its way to the sump pump
    2. CleanSpace Liner- a durable, vapor barrier liner that stops moisture from coming up from their dirt ground and growing mold on the wood beams.
    3. SaniDry Sedona- keeps your home below 55% Relative Humidity, so mold won’t stand a chance and dust mites will die off.
    4. TripleSafe Sump Pump- has three different pumps that will change automatically based on what your space needs!
    5. EverLast Door- made out of non organic materials that will not warp or rust and has a seal that will keep insects and moisture out

    The family is now very happy with their healthy crawl space!

    Moldy Wood Beam Vs. Steel SmartJack Stabilizer in Nashville, TN

    Why trust an organic beam that can mold and be eaten away by termites? Especially when it supports your home's foundation!

    If your floors are bouncy or sagging, you might want to look at your central beam. Sturdy foundation walls will not be able to hold your home up in the long run, there needs to be a strong central beam to hold the weight of people and furniture.

    Our crew made sure sagging floors were a thing of the past for this Nashville family. They installed our steel SmartJack piers that can be cut down to fit your crawl space and are coated with a thick galvanized coating that will protect the pier from rusting!

  • New Sump Pump in Nashville TN

    New Sump Pump in Nashville TN

    This older sump pump needed to be retired.

    Part of the problem is that it was open, stagnate water is never good, but this also contributes to moisture in the air of the home.

    The new TripleSafe Sump pump system is installed to house a cast iron pump sitting on a pump stand.

    The previous pump sat on bricks submerged in water. The pump stand keeps allows any sediment to settle on the bottom of the liner instead clogging up the pump.

    During an annual service appointment, the sump pump will be inspected and cleaned, any sediment in the bottom of the liner will also be cleaned out at that time.

    Once fully installed the airtight lid is screwed into place and provides a place for a safety alarm in case of pump ever does stop functioning or water levels rise too high.

    The homeowner typically loses power during big storms, so this system also has a backup battery pump, so the basement is still protected even when the power goes out.

    The CleanSpace liner wraps the wall to help with moisture from the block but also for a much nicer and brighter appearance.

    Electrical cords will be gathered and straightened and ran to a designated electrical outlet.

    Bright Basement Wall in Nashville TN

    This leaky basement in Nashville Tennessee went from funky to fresh in couple days with proper water management.

    BrightWall paneling was installed to drain leaks into a perimeter WaterGuard System.

    The WaterGuard system is an interior perimeter drainage system that sits up and against the footing collecting water and directing to the TripleSafe Sump Pump system.

    Insulation and the SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier was our solution to waterproofing a Nashville couple's basement.

    After clearing out the basement and removing the black tarp, our team put in the insulation on the floor and stone walls and then installed the SaniDry to help prevent mold and reduce musty odors. Fun Fact: If humidity is high, those musty odors will affect the upstairs environment!

    New Sump Pump in Elkton KY

    This home in Elkton Kentucky had an older sump pump system and a store bought a dehumidifier. But the basement was still getting wet.

    The basement was used for storage mostly so keeping the space dry is important.

    A TripleSafe Sump liner sits level with the floor housing a Zoeller M53 cast iron sump pump but has space for additional pumps as needed. An airtight lid secures on the liner keeping the moisture out of the air.

    Faux vs True Encapsulation

    This home was "encapsulated" 5 years ago by another company.

    However it was not a true encapsulation, it only had a thin plastic liner rolled out along the dirt floor and partially up the block.

    Because this plastic did not control the humidity of this space, and during some seasons make the humidity worse, the family had noticed their floors above were warping.

    This faux encapsulation had caused additional problems for the home.

     

    A true encapsulation will completely seal the home from outside air.

    Our vapor barrier, CleanSpace, is a 20 mil plastic that covers the earth and runs up the block. Vents are closed and insulated, all joist and any other areas air can flow are sealed with foam.

    A non-organic custom insulated crawl space door closes the space off finishing off the encapsulation.

    The home's floors are now protected from the heat and moisture that are necessary for warping.
