Jeffery P. of Nashville, TN was tired of his cold, regular basement. He decided he wanted to transform his basement into a living area and Frontier Basement Systems was the company for the job!

Jeffery can now enjoy a comfortable basement that is dry and insulated thanks to the work of Frontier Basement Systems and we were pleased to help!
Sage and Colin K. of Nashville were ecstatic about purchasing their new home, but the basement needed to be repaired.
They noticed that each time it rained, water would leak into the home and cause the ground to be damp and a musty smell to form throughout the home.
Frontier Basement Systems was the company they decided to call! A TripleSafe Single pump was placed in the corner of the basement and with the waterguard keeping the water flowing away from the home, they no longer have to worry about any moisture!
Sage and Colin were so happy with the work Frontier Basement Systems completed that they decided to call us again to finish their basement! The walls, floors, and windows are going to be transformed into a stunning living area! Frontier Basement Systems takes pride in keeping the customers satisfied!
We recieved a call from a customer who had 2600sqf of moister and mold problems. We knew right away that we needed to fix his crawlspace and completly eliminate his mold and moister problems. After one quick visit with one of our highly-trained expert inspectors the homeowner knew he had to do something to protect his home. Other companies before us "treated" his crawlspace for mold, scraping and spraying to elimitate the damage done to his building materials. We informed the customer that these types of standard treatments don't work as they can never kill the source of mold and eliminate moister.
It didnt take long for our homeowner to make a decision to get the perminate fix to a 5 year headache that he had been praying for. We installed a full perimeter SmartPipe System which lines the inside of the crawlspace acting as a gutter-like pipe system that catches water from all areas of the crawlspace and directs it to our award winning TripleSafe Sump Pump. However, eliminating the water is only the first step. Next, our production crew installed our super durable 20mil structeral CleanSpace vapor barrier to keep moister from evaporating in the humid crawlspace and creating wood rot and mold. Once we encapsulated the crawlspace, we installed our energy star rated Sanidry CX, a commercial grade dehumidifier to completly dry out all of his building material and leaving him with a relitive humidity below 50% killing mold's main source of life. Not only did this home owner get a dry crawlspace, but he also got better breathable air and a lifetime garuntee of no more headaches.
We are so glad we were able to fix his crawlspace issues as we do best! He couldn't have made a better decision than to turn to the experts and leaders in waterproofing in his community, Frontier Basement Systems!
After dealing with an old rusted sump pump, one of our homeowners in Antioch, TN decided that it was time for a change. They called us with only one concern in mind: "I need a new sump pump". With no probelm we imidiatly sent out a knowlegable representitive to address the concern. After a thorough inspection, our Sales Rep discovered all the issues the homeowners had because of their old pump. We recomended our Triple Safe pump system which was a answer to a prayer to our homeowners. They loved the success of their new pump so much that they also wanted to know about our basement air system (the SaniDry Up-right)
After installing both a new waterproof pump system and a better air system, these homeowners went from panic to perminate!
We are the best in fixing concrete slabs, porches, and much much more!
This home owner was concerned with a moldy, musty smell that he kept smelling in certain areas of the home. He knew that there was mold growth in the crawl space and was worried that it could flare up health risks. That's when he had called Frontier to get his free inspection, and sure enough, there was mold starting to grow on the foundation. Mold releases mold spores into the air that can cause asthma and allergies to develop.
We started by taking the black liner that wasn't protecting the home from moisture, out of the crawl space. We installed a number of our products that help with moisture control such as the SaniDry Crawlspace Air System, CleanSpace Liner 20 Mil, Delta Drainage Matting, IceGuard, LawnScape Outlet, and our TripleSafe Single.
Thanks to our CleanSpace Encapsulation System, not only is this crawl space clean and dry, but it now brings cleaner air into the house. We provided the best permanent solution through our WOW customer service!
This Nashville,TN home was in need of some repair to the basement due to cracking in their concrete floor. Our job assignment was to lift and level the flooring and fill the cracks. This home project included using our PolyLevel injection system, which will expand underneath the concrete slab and lift the flooring back to its prior position. After the flooring is stable, we can then go in and fill the cracks with our NexusPro Joint Sealant. With our professionally trained staff and our highest quality products, no job is too tough to tackle for Frontier Basement Systems!
This Nashville home had cracks in the basement wall, allowing for up to 2 inches of rain leaking in with heavy rain. After living with water leaks, stress, mold, and lost time for over two years this home owner was ready for a permanent fix. The home owner wants to keep the entire basement dry ALL the time! Once the foundation is fixed, this space can be finished for family living space adding additional value to the home.
The foundation walls of the basement are designed to hold the weight from top but not the weight of the soil from the sides. When large amounts of rain fall quickly and absorb in to the soil that pressure pushes against the wall creating stress. The GeoLock Wall Anchors reinforce the wall to support this hydrostatic pressure.
With plans to finish the basement in the future the water that comes in with rains is not encouraging. This home had water leaking from the windows, door, and base of the wall. The home has had this problem for 10 years, over that time personal items have been ruined and there is a significant amount of square foot that could not be used. The homeowners would like to keep the entire basement dry, all the time.
The goal is a dry a basement for this older 1920s home on a monolithic slab with stone walls. Our inspector listened to the homeowners concerns, did a full inspection of the home, and designed a custom permanent solution for the family.
CleanSpace Wall System 100% waterproof plastic vapor barrier. This is a great solution for an unfinished space; attractive and effective.
WaterGuard sits on the footing of the foundation, out of sight with no disturbance to the usable space.
DryTrak sits at the base of the wall and collects water, routing the water to the sump pump to be pumped out of the basement. This was used on the walls that WaterGuard cannot be installed.
A trench drain was placed at the foot of the steps for any water that might come in from under the outside door.
LawnScape IceGuard and Outlets provide a place for the water to escape safely away from the foundation of the home even in the event of a freeze or clog.
This basement is now permanently dry with safe useful space. The home owner has peace of mind and all the square footage back to use as needed.
This home needed its foundation and floors permanently stabilized to remedy its unlevel floors and stop further damage from cracks in the structure.
The minimal disruptions and quick installation of Push Piers provided the ultimate solution, by digging down and installing against the bedrock or stable soil layer, the foundation was lifted and restored.
The family was so pleased with the outcome of our work that it earned us a 5 star review across the board - well done team!
This families basement got a waterproofing makeover to keep it permanently dry and remain a usable space!
The WaterGuard to collect water from the floors and walls, the Sedona SaniDry dehumidifier to remove moisture from the air and both draining into the TripleSafe Sump Pump to pump the water out from the house.
The outside of this Hermitage family's home you can visibly see the typical stair step cracking caused by foundation settlement, before it continues to settle further and widen the cracks, we were able to provide a permanent solution to halt further damage.
Push Piers provide solutions for a number of foundation conditions such as having the lowest risk when the local soil information is unknown, their ability to lift a home back to level, limited disturbance to lawns and landscaping and permanently stabilizing foundations without maintenance.
Radon is a naturally-occurring radioactive gas that is emitted from rocks and soil. Radon can easily enter a building through cracks and gaps in the foundation, mixing with the interior air you breathe every day.
Impossible to see or smell, radon gas can cause cellular changes in lung tissue that eventually lead to lung cancer. It kills about 21,000 people in the U.S. every year.
This Nashville family now has the peace of mind in their newly purchased home and can focus on their new baby!
Swimming pool safety is always a top priority whatever the weather. So when the surrounding concrete starts to sink this makes trips and falls all the more likely.
PolyLevel is ideal for the surrounding patio slabs because it's quick to install and the neatest option with very little of the area being disturbed.
This basement is home to a family member so it was a high priority to ensure that water is not able to enter during prolonged rains and cause damage and issues to the living space.
As well as the WaterGuard water proofing and other drainage measures installed, we were able to restore the damaged drywall with the Everlast Wall Restoration System. This involves cutting away just the lower portion of the wall away and replacing the wooden studs with metal ones.
Everlast wall panels are immune to mold and moisture damage and are only available from certified installers, so contact us for a free cost estimate today!
The investment in finishing a basement is always a good one - the extra living space is an increase in value and be more attractive to potential buyers.
The versatility of options are endless, extra family room, storage, or even a gym!
It is imperative that any finishings are completed using materials designed to withstand sub-ground level conditions. Basement to Beautiful wall panels are custom engineered foam panels with integral studs which are fastened directly onto the foundation walls, they have the highest insulation rating and have channels for wiring to be run through. They will remain unaffected by any flood water or moisture damage when paired with an Everlast wall panel as they are also manufactured with no organic materials.
A home purchase is one of the largest investments you can make. so enabling our customers to protect that is something we think very highly of here at Frontier Basement Systems.
Although we work every day to fix cracked, broken, settling and sinking homes and their foundations, we understand that each persons home and budget is highly individual and emotive and we have experts who work very hard to find the perfect solution that everybody can be happy with.
Don't hide the problem with patching over cracks, fixing the issues permanently and properly will ensure that the problem does not get worse and you aren't putting your home in danger of further structural damage as the weight shifts to areas not designed to bear it.
This Nashville home had a concrete basement pad which had sunk, needing to be raised and needed further stabilization of its foundation.
We were able to do this by installing Push Piers to the area of the building requiring the extra support, these low profile brackets are applied to the foundation and secured to the next solid layer of bedrock by a section of steel piping. There is no ongoing maintenance required and installation is complete within a matter of hours.
Since the flood of 2010 this Nashville basement will flood during heavy rains.
A drain was installed in the basement floor when the home was built this seemed practical since the utilities were there.
In 2010 Nashville had a great flood, even ground water was going any where it could. Homes like this one had water coming in through the drain. Over time as the area grew, land was developed, water routes were altered.
Since this time this home has had flooding with every heavy rain.
Main concern: Water getting in the HVAC unit and causing damage.
The space is also used for storage so the goal was to protect the utilities and personal belongings, providing peace of mind for future rains.
Triple Safe Single Pump System
The pump liner collects all water and moisture. From there a single M-53 Zoeller cast iron sump pump moves the water through to the discharge lines.
The patented IceGuard prevents wintertime freeze-up of discharge lines, providing an escape route if needed.
A 4" discharge line is buried and ran 15 feet away from the home at a down grade a LawnScape Outlet caps off the end. This fitting is a way to eliminate visible discharge lines in the yard.
Concern: Smell coming from crawl space.
The home owner is aware of the moisture in the crawl space and already has a pump.
Problem: The home has poor drainage under the home, specifically at any joints or cut outs. Water is just sitting in the old sump pump creating a nasty smell througout the home above.
80 feet of SmartPipe. SmartPipe offers a water management solution for this home. The custom-engineered design provides a route for water in the crawl space to travel to the pump and be pumped from the home.
SmartPipe has holes on top and front under a filter fabric allowing for ground water to pass. It also has larger holes on the back side for water from the crawl space walls, footing, and wall joist to pass. The drainage lines collects the water and runs to the existing sump pump.
This Nashville family can get back to enjoying their beautiful home without the musty and moldy smells.
The tenants of this Goodlettsville rental property were complaining about mold in the home. The management company was aware of leaks in the crawl space but not aware of any mold. Concerned about the damages of mold and moisture the owner agreed to the free inspection.
The property is a duplex with 2 separate crawl spaces at rear of the home. The crawl space was very wet and muddy the day of the inspection. We had not had significant rain for quite some time but there were water lines of previously standing water.

Waterproof the Basement
Steel Push Piers. The steel pipe and bracket system is hot dipped in molten zinc to prevent corrosion and rust.
The Push Pier has a secondary external sleeve at the upper portion of the pier directly under the footing to prevent lateral bending and failure of the pier. A friction reducing collar is at the starter tip of the pier to create a space on the sides of the pier and drive the pier down to far greater lengths. Piers are driven down to load bearing strata and or bedrock to reach a pier pressure of at least 1,500 PSI confirming load bearing strata.
Smartjacks: Smartjacks are steel support posts dipped in molten zinc to prevent rust and corrosion. The Smartjack has an adjustable thread and nut at the top which can be adjusted at any time in the future. The Smartjack rest on an engineered footing with a minimum size of 2’ width by 2’ length’ by 2’ deep to spread the load to a manageable weight on the soil.
Sister Floor Joists.
Geo-Lock Wall Anchors. using a 12"x28" wall support.
Concrete steps removed and replaced with new
Pour new concrete reinforced steps with a thin expansion joint between the newly poured steps and the brick.
WaterGuard sub-floor drainage system to permanently prevent water seepage. The WaterGuard will be installed with a layer of drainage rock. Finally, concrete will be poured over WaterGuard system and the floor will be restored flush.
TripleSafe Complete pump system. Primary pump will be a high-end 1/3 HP cast-iron Zoeller M53 Sump Pump with a mechanical float switch. Secondary pump will be a high-end 1/2 HP cast-iron Zoeller M98 Sump Pump with a mechanical float switch. Both the pumps sit on top of clean pump stands inside a perforated, below-grade twin sump liner and will run off AC Power. An UltraSump battery operated pump with automatic charger will also be installed along with a 120 amp sealed maintenance-free battery so the pump remains functional even during power outages. The Ultra Sump III will protect against flooding if your power or circuit breakers fail. Finally, an airtight lid with an airtight floor drain, in case of plumbing leaks, will be installed to prevent moisture from escaping from the sump liner.
A WaterWatch alarm will alert the homeowner in the event of pump failure.
This home technically has a crawl space on a really steep slope so one side is only about 4 blocks where the other is as tall as a traditional basement.
The family has lived in this Nashville home for 3 years and loves the idea of the extra space but wants a few things addressed before really taking advantage of it. .
The shorter end can have the traditional encapsulation where at the taller end needed a little water management.
Ideally the family would like to have it leveled and a concrete slab poured for additional storage.
The typical complaints are a concerns that are also important to fix; cold floors, family members with allergies and asthma, and high humidity.
We came up with a permanent solution that would accomplish all of these things.
The solution for this home was to encapsulate the shorter portion of the crawlspace with our CleanSpace 20mil vapor barrier.
Air Seal and SilverGlo in Rim Joist to prevent air leaks and drafts.
The taller portion did require some dig out with leveling for the concrete pour. It is now easy for the family to access and use for storage
A SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier system is installed to help control humidity levels of the home making the air healthy and comfortable.
The family now has added a ton of usable space to their home, cut back on utility bills, and protected from mold, mildew, and wood rot.
This client had purchased the home 2 months earlier when our inspector came out to check for water issues. During heavy rains water comes in under the basement door. this had done significant damage to the drywall in the basement. In the short time the home owner had been there they had already seen over 1/2 of water, damaged wood floor and lower half of drywall.
Wood flooring is a dead organic material that will absorb the moisture and swell. The level of wood moisture is important to protect wood flooring or furniture. Drywall absorbs water like a sponge creating mold and odors in the home.
The family plans of living in the home for a long time and understood this would most definitely happen again without a permanent solution. With plans to finish the basement, proper water management was absolutely necessary.
To address the water coming under the door a trench drain was installed to collect water and direct to a sump pump.
An UltraSump with a float switch collects water and pumps out and away form the home through a discharge line.
SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier controls the humidity of the home. The dehumidifier also drains into the sump pump system.
A permanent solution for this home owner's water problem will protect the home, personal belongings, and the health of the family. With all concerns and priorities addressed, a permanent solution, and a nationally backed warranty this family has a happy ending to their water problems.
Top to Bottom, Home Encapsulation!
A 1930 home in Nashville was in need of new insulation. The attic and crawl space had insulation but not sure how old.
The thermostat was struggling, rooms were uncomfortable, the heating and cooling unit had to work way to hard.
With FREEZING winters behind us and HOT summers a head of us, making this home comfortable was important.
Making the home energy efficient was top priority for this family. Controlling moisture and humidity to prevent mold was also on this family's accomplish list.
From the top, out with the old.
Insulate the Attic,
1. Remove old insulation.
2. Seal all air leaks.
3. Cover Can lights and seal.
4. Blow in TruSoft Cellulose insulation.
5. Install new scuttle hatch cover.
Cleaning out the old insulation of the attic was first. Our crews vacuumed out the old soiled insulation, exposing the floor and frame.
To make the attic as energy efficient as possible sealing air leaks was first. Using a foam all cracks and holes were sealed, even can lights covered and sealed. This attic was not used for storage and did not house the HVAC or duct work so a TruSoft blown in cellulose insulation was the perfect solution for the family. The blow in insulation provides a budget friendly project that results in much lower energy bills. An air tight attic scuttle hatch cover finishes up the attic encapsulation for this home.
Meanwhile in the crawl space, to treat the cold floors, sagging floors, and water concerns encapsulation of this space was performed.
Insulate the crawl space,
1. Debris was removed.
2. Earth was regraded for drainage.
3. Lateral line dug and placed to collect ground water.
4. Waterguard Drainage System is installed against the footing of the foundation to collect water and take away from the foundation.
5. Delta Drainage Matting was laid down across the ground of the crawl space.
6. 2' Insulated panels were cut to fit and installed at the joist and sealed with ZypFoam
7. 20mil CleanSpace Liner lines the entire below grade space and sealed at the rim joists.
8. New customer crawl space door.
With everything sealed and insulated form top to bottom this old home is now ready for all Tennessee weather! The family will be comfortable, heating and cooling will be much easier, energy bills lower, and the air healthier.
This family will appreciate these updates for years to come.
This Goodlettsville family moved in to their new home last year but have had problems with water int he basement the whole time. Up to 40 gallons of water comes in at the front with heavy rains, knowing it could happen again and not wanting to worry about any further water or damages the family was looking for a permanent solution.
The family plans on staying in their home for years to come and finishing the basement for additional living space. Keeping the whole basement dry all of the time was important.
Our inspector took a look and found the water did come in at the front of the home under the stairs that lead down to the basement. Another concern was the down spouts from the gutter ran down to the foundation but did not direct the water away from the home any distance.
This basement need a permanent water management solution that would collect and discharge the water out and away from the home.
The WaterGuard System was the solution to collect the leaky ground water. WaterGuard is a specially designed patented product that is installed along the interior of the home and sits on the footer. Because of where the water was coming in, the stairs had to be removed and reset so the system could be installed along that wall that leaked. Inspection ports were also included to make inspections and testing of system even easier.
The water is directed to a pump liner that houses a SuperSump and UltraSump Pump. These cast iron Zoeller sump pumps are equipped with a mechanical float switch. As water collect and the switch is triggered the pump will turn on and pump the water out of the home and through a discharge line buried outside.
A LawnScape Outlet is installed at the end of the discharge line to protect the outlet from being clogged or smashed. An IceGuard fitting was installed on the discharge line just as it runs out of the home before running underground. The IceGuard will allow for water to escape the line if the buried discharge line is damaged or clogged
For this particular home, we were able to run the down spouts in to the discharge line as well so the gutter water was carried further away from the foundation.
This basement is now protected from those heavy rains that were causing so much stress and worry for this family.
This Nashville home tested for radon levels over 15pCi/L.
The US EPA marks action level at 4pCi/L, meaning a building over that level needs to mitigate the radon gas present in the space.
Radon is a gas created by the breakdown of uranium in soil and rocks. Not a bid deal, right? Well if a home or building is sitting on top the pressure if even greater and the gas has no where to go except bottled up in the home.
The solution is simple, mitigate the gas. By providing an exit for the gas the pressure is released and the gas is diffused.
Radon levels are scary because it is the number one leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. (Smoking is the number one cause of lung cancer for smokers). The higher the levels the greater the risk.
Frontier installed a Radon Mitigation System with a Premium Radon Fan and vent. The vent with fan suctions the gas out of the home and the pipe released it in to the atmosphere. The gas is dispersed and diffused, no longer a threat to those around.
This Nashville home had a finished basement that the home owner really enjoyed using. However, the basement would leak with heavy rains; drywall and wood flooring had been ruined. Damages,l mold, mildew, and causes were all concerns. Restoring this space properly and permanently was important to the home owner.
DryTrak Drainage System
TripleSafe Single Sump Pump System
Plan of Action:
1)Remove 22 linear feet of existing water damaged drywall up EXACTLY 37 INCHES. This will meet with the height of the existing shelf. The drywall is sitting on 2x4 studs BUT the drywall is 2" OFF THE WALL
2) Chalk a line on the existing wood flooring and use a skill saw to cut a line in the wood flooring to give us the necessary space to install our drainage system.
3) We will remove the bottom 3 or 4 stair treads, stringers, trim, as necessary in the way for us to properly install our DryTrak baseboard system.
4) Install Everlast wall restoration system 37 inches high to restore the finished wall we cut out. We will restore 22 linear feet with the Everlast panel. It comes with new plastic baseboards, metal studs, and chair rail. Everlast wall has a 50 year water damage warranty from the manufacturer. Everlast will is not organic therefore it cannot mold or rot.
5) Install 27 linear feet of 12mil CleanSpace wall liner on the basement walls where the DryTrack System is going.
6) We will use a floor adhesive glue to glue back down the cut pieces of wood flooring.
7) Install the TripleSafe single sump pump and discharge out.
8) We will bring a licensed electrician to wire two electrical outlets directly from the panel box to the sump pump to plug in to.
This home owner no longer has to worry about rainy days and water in the basement. He can rest easy knowing the home is protected.
Radon mitigation in Nashville TN
The average radon reading for this school was 27 pCi/L. The first test read 28.7 pCi/L so a duplicate test was run, those results came back at 25.2.
For radon test results above 4pCi/L, the EPA recommends action.
Lowering Radon levels was important for this school to keep the faculty and students safe.
Radon mitigation system
The intent of this project is to lower radon levels below 4 pCi/L; through the removal of existing baseboard. Then sealing the footing foundation wall joint around the inner perimeter using NexusPro Joint Sealant.
(4) Radon Mitigation systems
Radon discharge lines run overhead and above roof line using two Premium Radon Mitigation Large Fans to discharge out the exterior wall
In some areas, the existing flooring had to be folded back to expose the footing wall joint.
Upon project completion, Frontier will provide a 3rd Party Test kits for post-testing.
The faculty, staff, and students are no longer in danger of these high levels or long-term exposure to this gas. Taking necessary actions to protect the lungs and health of all those that frequent the learning center.
The family does not go in the crawl space often so they were unsure it if leaks and have not seen any mold.
The dining room had soft spots in the floor that were concerning the structure underneath. This homeowner said he didn't want to replace the floor every 2 years. Taking care of moisture was a priority to him.
Moisture in the crawl space had damaged the supports and flooring of the home. The humidity and temperatures had created a perfect environment for mold growth. Mold eating away at the wood had caused a great deal of wood rot making the flooring much softer.
The humidity, temperature, and weight of the home caused the sagging of the wood.
A new supplemental beam is added to distribute weight and support the weight of the home above. A couple of smart jacks are used to securely hold the beam in place.
The crawl space is encapsulated with a 20mil 7 layer thick vapor barrier protecting the home from unfavorable conditions that encourage mold growth and wood rot.
A SaniDry Sedona is a very efficient dehumidifier, it controls the humidity levels of the crawl space and the home above. Even Dust mites can't survive in the home if the humidity level is less than 50%.
With permanent solutions to these concerns, the family can enjoy the peace of mind and a much healthier home.
The family bought this 1979 home 10 years ago and have noticed some changes in the past year making one of the doors harder to open and close. They are now ready to sell their home, but the door won’t close properly and there is a gap at the top. This must be addressed before putting the home on the market.
High humidity and the weight of the home have affected the integrity of the joist and supports. Without proper support, the wood began to sag and pull on the exterior walls of the home causing cracks and shifting of the door.
Permanently Stabilize Floors
Install 3 SmartJacks to support the floor joist system above.
Install Supplemental beam
Lift & Level Floors
With floors properly supported and the frame square, the door can function properly.
If not repaired, the problem would have only gotten worse and the home would not have passed inspection.
Instead, it is now ready for a new family to purchase and enjoy life.
Frontier Basement Systems warrants that the SmartJacks will stabilize the affected area against the further settlement for five (5) years from the date of installation, or Frontier will provide the labor and materials, at no cost to Customer, to make any necessary adjustments to the SmartJacks.
Additionally, the manufacture of the SmartJacks warrants that SmartJacks will, under normal use and service, be free from defects in material and workmanship for twenty-five (25) years from the date of installation.
Mr. Lawrence moved into his 1940's home a year ago. He just recently started noticing the water intake in his basement was getting worse and worse. When he had 4 ft of standing water in his basement, he knew he needed professional help. Mr. Lawrence got his basement encapsulated, and he also got a new product and area for the collected water to pump out of.. our LawnScape Outlet in his lawn!
Previously, the water that was pumping out of the basement was going out of a pvc pipe and onto their concrete driveway. There was water continuously pumping out and that was causing unsightly mold to grow right on their driveway!
Our crew installed the pvc pipe on the side of the house, which led to our LawnScape Outlet in their backyard, which is conveniently placed a few feet away from their home. The pvc pipe is buried and only the green outlet was left showing.
After the mold is power-washed off their driveway, they won't have to worry about it getting worse. The outlet is camouflaged in their backyard, not unsightly at all!
Mr. Lawrence is a happy customer now that he has an encapsulated basement and better outlet for the unwanted water to come out of!
Jeff G. was experiencing tons of problems with his home since he moved in. There was mold in the crawl space and in his living quarters upstairs. There was a musty aroma wafting in his home and he was starting to have a pest problem. Jeff had already had to replace a few rotten wood beams and he no longer wanted to deal with it. He wanted to get his home encapsulated, but he did not know what company to go with. Jeff went to google to compare companies and reviews. He liked what everyone had to say about us and he especially liked that we offered free estimates and inspections, so he called us up.
Our waterproofing specialists came out to inspect his home and tested the relative humidity in the crawl space. Jeff's crawl space was full of moisture and smelled of mildew. The humidity percentage was 78%, so it made sense that mold was growing, because it was 28% over the percentage in which mold begins to grow.
Our specialists went over our encapsulation process with Jeff and he liked all of our profucts and agreed. Our crew got to work on encapsulating his crawl space!
CleanSpace Drainage Matting
CleanSpace Liner- made to reduce moisture and humidity
SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier
TripleSafe Sump Pump- a powerful pump that will ensure all water gets pumped out and away from the house
Jeff now has a peace of mind regarding his home and loves the products!
This Nashville family just moved into their 1950's home and found out that the basement had a serious leaking issue.
Whenever it rained, the basement would have puddles and puddles of water.
They were worried about their things rotting and never being able to use their basement because there was always water everywhere. They were tired of the stress that it brought them anytime it rained. The family had tried to fix the problem themselves for the past 5 months, but the drains and sandbags used were no help.
They looked around for waterproofing companies and took bids, but they were looking for a company that not only had a good price, but a great warranty as well. We are a nationally backed company with warranties that customers love, so when they found our company on the website they decided to give us a chance. We sent over our inspector, Nicholas, and he gave them solutions to their issues and explained our waterproofing products. They liked our solutions, so our crew started on waterproofing their basement!
They installed the WaterGuard to collect water from the walls and ground surface, the TrenchDrain, a sturdy drain for entryways, our TripleSafe Sump Pump, IceGuard, LawnScape Outlet, and CleanSpace Wall System to hide the ugly stained walls!
They love the way their basement walls look and love the fact that they don't have to stress about their basement flooding even more!
Plus, they can use their basement for storage now!
Ryan P. was moving back into his 1979 home, but first he needed a few things fixed. For the past few years, he has noticed his floors dropping and becoming uneven. Ryan was worried that one day they might collapse on him, so after talking about it with his friends, he was referred to us!
Our inspector, Nicholas, came over to inspect Ryan's home and talk with him about our solutions, products, price, and warranties.
Ryan had already gotten estimates from other companies, but did not like the price that they gave him. He liked everything about our company, so he chose to work with us!
Nicholas found that there was an excessive amount of moisture in the crawl space from pools of water and mold had begun to grow on his wood beams. The lack of support was causing the floors to drop, so Nicholas had two solutions for Ryan.
The first being crawl space encapsulation. The liner reduces moisture and vapor in your crawl space. The other product we installed, the SaniDry Sedona would keep the humidity level below 55%.
The other solution we had for Ryan and his uneven floors, was our SmartJack System. These steel galvanized piers are cut to size and can lift your floor back to the original position.
Ryan now has a supported foundation and a dry crawl space. He no longer has to worry about his floors failing on him!
We are thankful he chose to trust us with his home!
James B. was having a settling issue with his forever home. He noticed exterior cracks forming 5 years ago and lately they were only getting worse. The cracks were becoming longer and wider, and appearing in multiple places.
They needed a company that had a good price and a good warranty. Luckily, one of James' colleagues recommended us. He called us and we offered him our everyday deal of a free inspection and estimate!
Our inspector, Nicholas, met with James and after inspecting his home, he discussed possible solutions to the problem. They agreed that our 3" steel Push Piers were the best solution for the home's settling problem. He told James that the home's settling could be from numerous things, such as erosion or the home's soil not being properly prepared before having a home built on it. But whatever the problem, it always should be fixed as soon as possible upon seeing the first signs of cracking!
Our crew came in and installed our brackets deep into the soil beneath the foundation.
In many scenarios, push piers not only stop settlement but lift the foundation back to its original position, close cracks, and improve window and door operation.
Our foundation push pier systems include a 25-year warranty against manufacturing defects, as well as our performance warranty. They are a very affordable and long-term solution to foundation settling. James is happy that he no longer has to worry about the cracks getting worse and can rely on our nationally backed products.
Rachel M. was having a problem with a leaky basement for the past 6 months anytime it rained heavy. The water was coming in from the garage door and back door. The most water she's had at one time is over an inch. She was previously using the space for storage and had some of her personal items stored in the basement. Her carpet had already been ruined by the flooding and she was worried about her furniture becoming damaged. She had already started to see mold growing from the excessive amount of moisture.
Rachel's long term goals were to have a dry finished basement with carpet.
She originally set out to find a good sump pump and in the process stumbled upon our website. Rachel liked all of our waterproofing products and was hooked when she saw that we offered free estimates and inspections. She was eager to learn more, so she called our appointment center and booked an inspection with John.
John inspected her home and then discussed with Rachel the waterproofing products that could help her flooding issue.
We have an all-star sump pump- The TripleSafe Sump Pump. This pump has 3 different pumps that automatically switch based on your space's needs. One of the pumps is battery operated, so even if your power goes out you won't have to worry about your pump failing on you when you need it most!
We installed our reliable TripleSafe Sump Pump, TrenchDrain, WaterGuard System, and Lawnscape Outlet. The WaterGuard System does a great job at collecting water from both the ground surface and wall and directs it to the designated pump!
Rachel now has a dry basement that she can start renovating and making it a place to store her items safely! She loves that she no longer has to worry or clean up any watery mess!
Mary B.'s basement wall corners were leaking whenever it rained heavily. She once had 16 inches of water in her basement. This leaking issue has caused damage to her brand new A/C unit and caused her to not be able to utilize her space the way she wanted to. Mary wanted to be able to use her basement for storage and as a living area. She was worried that the problem would only continue causing her home's integrity. She needed a company that would do the job right and had quality products and workers.
She found the Basement Systems website and was directed to us, because we were in her service area. She liked all of our waterproofing products, so she called us up and scheduled a free inspection!
Hunter came out, inspected her home, and then discussed with her the possible solutions.
Mary liked the WaterGuard System, because it not only collected ground surface water, but also water from the walls due to its engineered "lip". It is also barely noticeable when cemented in!
After learning more about our products, she was excited to get the project going.
We installed the WaterGuard System, TrenchDrain, TripleSafe Pump (has a battery-operated pump that will automatically kick on in case of a power outage), IceGuard, and SaniDry Sedona (a powerful dehumidifier that will keep the humidity level below 55%).
Mary is now proud to say she has a dry basement that she can transform into a living area!

Jeffrey L. was having issues with his basement leaking and his wall bowing in. He first noticed cracks 10 years ago and it gradually got worse. Whenever it rained heavily, his basement would flood. It has gotten over 2 inches of water at one time and he knows it will happen again. He had dreams of being able to use his space for safe storage, because as of right now, he knew everything in his basement could possibly get ruined at any time.
When Jeffrey saw our commercial on Channel 4 News, he called right away!
We had an inspector come out for free to inspect his basement. Our inspector noted the bowing wall and leaks, which had come from hydrostatic pressure from the wet soil outside of the home. The expansion of the soil had became too much for his wall and was causing cracks, which had became a place for water to leak through.
They discussed possible solutions and decided on our WaterGuard System, CleanSpace Wall System, and CarbonArmor products.
The WaterGuard is used to catch ground water and water from the walls, which works great with our CleanSpace Wall System, because not only is it white, clean, and a great alternative to painting, but it also reduces moisture and vapor in the crawl space! They also installed our TripleSafe Sump Pump and TrenchDrain to collect and pump the water out of the home.
For the bowing wall, our crew installed Carbon Armor.
CarbonArmor uses fiber-reinforced polymers which are 10-times stronger than steel, yet flexible enough to contour tightly against your basement wall. The ArmorLock brackets bind and secure the CarbonArmor straps to your floor joists making the CarbonArmor solution fast, non-invasive and ideal for quickly stabilizing bowing and leaning walls.
Jeffrey now has a dry basement that he can use for storage! He is so glad he does not have to worry about his wall bowing in anymore and getting worse!
Linda and her husband have lived in their home since it was built in 1957. They first started noticing foundation issues in 2004, such as cracks on their walls upstairs inside their home and cracks in their brick outside of their home, as well as in their crawl space. Their windows and doors were also sticking and their floors were becoming uneven. The couple had tried to fix the issue with jacks (from another company) but they failed soon after installing and eventually started to tip over.
They had plans to renovate their home, but they knew they needed to fix their foundation issues first and "make everything sturdy before we begin", as they put it. And we could not agree more, so we were so glad they found us via HomeAdvisor and booked their free inspection!
Our inspector, Stephen, came out to their home and looked over their property. They had many cracks in their walls and uneven surfaces. After taking several photos and tests, Stephen sat down with the couple and explained to them his suggestions in detail. They liked that our products were nationally backed and thought that they were a great solution to their issues. They were ready to start the project!
Our crew installed 3" Push Piers under the home to lift the settling home back to its original position. They also installed wall anchors in the crawl space to straighten the walls back up that was forced down by pressure from outside soil and water.
To fix the issue of the uneven floor, our crew installed our SmartJacks system. This galvanized, easily adjustable steel stabilizer will never rust and will be able to lift your floors back to their original position.
Linda and her husband are so glad they got their foundation work done before proceeding to everything else on their list. Your home's structure is all glued together. If one piece begins falling off, it can take the rest of your home down with it. And now they can rest peacefully knowing they have a long-lasting solution!
Mr. Harrison was having a problem with water coming into his home through the entire side of his house. Whenever it rained heavy there would be flooding in a bedroom, bathroom, and in his garage. He has lived in his home for the past decade and has noticed the water intrusion since moving in. Mr. Harrison was very worried about water damage, mold growth, and rot, and wanted to never have to worry about the flooding again.
Mr. Harrison saw one of our ads in Clipper Magazine and decided to take advantage of our free inspection and coupon.
We sent out one of our highly trained and especially friendly inspectors, David, to look at Mr. Harrison's home. After looking around where the water was entering the home, David sat down with Mr. Harrison and told him all about our waterproofing system. Our WaterGuard product was perfect to capture the escaping water from the wall and surface ground, and a plus is only a small part of the flange shows, so it is very discreet in the home. Our TrenchDrain was a great addition to our WaterGuard system in the garage, because it not only effectively captures surface water at stairways, doorways and along other openings, but it is also made out of rugged reinforced plastic that will not crack or dent, so a vehicle can run right over it with no issues at all!
Mr. Harrison agreed that these products were what his home needed, so he agreed to have them installed, plus a few other products!
Our crew also installed the SuperSump Plus Pump, which can pump out up to 2,280 gallons of water per hour. Mr. Harrison wanted extra security, so we also installed the UltraSump backup pump, which is battery operated and will automatically power on if there is a power outage.
We also installed the IceGuard, which prevents water from flooding your space if the discharge lines become frozen and also our LawnScape Outlet!
Mr. Harrison now has a dry home and no longer has to worry about water ruining his personal items or mold growing in his home! We are so glad we are able to provide reliable products to homeowners when they need them the most!

Mrs. Gore had a problem with large amounts of water during heavy rains going down the driveway and having no place to go. The driveway has started sinking due to water infiltration softening the soil underneath. This has caused Mrs. Gore many additional problems, such as hosting a big safety hazard, cracks in her garage and interiors cracks, as well.
She knew it was time to call a professional before the cracks and damage got any worse. She googled foundation experts in her area and found us, Frontier Basement Systems. We sent over our trained inspector, Robert, to give her her free inspection.
Robert looked around her property, took photos, and came back to speak to Mrs. Gore. He told her what was happening with her driveway and why it was sinking. He told her all about our 3" Push Piers that go under the foundation of the home and push the home back up to its original position.
A few technical features for the Push Pier:
Mrs. Gore liked the idea of the Push Piers and wanted them installed. Our crew also did a lift procedure on her sinking driveway.
She now has a supported foundation and no more safety hazards!
She is very happy that she got the work done and didn't wait any longer.

Mrs. Games was having a few issues with her home. Her basement flooded every time it rained and her crawl space had a bad moisture problem that was causing her wood beams to rot away. Once she even had 3" of water in her basement and she never wants that again. She can't use her basement for storage like most can, because she doesn't want to chance any of her things getting ruined. Damages have occurred to her floor due to the water and mold has begun to grow. Mrs. Games's crawl space was uncovered and moist, so she knew she needed something to get done to that part of her home, as well. She began to look around for contractors who had crawl space experience and could waterproof her basement. She met with a few of them and ended up choosing us, because of our nationally backed products.
When our inspector, Robert, came out to her home, he took photos and tests and then sat down with Mrs. Games to discuss with her what he found and what products we had that could help her. Her crawl space's relative humidity was above 80%, which meant that her space was the perfect environment for mold, mold spores, and dust mites to thrive. The high moisture rate infiltrated her wood beams giving them a 43% wood moisture rating. The beams were beginning to rot badly and would be an expensive foundation fix if she chose to wait any longer to reduce the humidity and moisture in her crawl space.
Robert suggested the following products for waterproofing Mrs. Games's basement: WaterGuard, TrenchDrain, SaniDry Sedona, IceGuard, LawnScape Outlet, and TripleSafe Sum Pump. He suggested these products to encapsulate her crawl space and collect water leakage: Drainage Matting, CleanSpace Liner, and TripleSafe Sump Pump.
She agreed that these products were best and was ready to have them installed! Our crew also installed the CleanSpace Wall System, and also Mold-X2 to clean and get rid of mold stains as well as use a spray to make sure the mold does not come back.
These products will work together to ensure that Mrs. Games will not have a moisture or humidity problem in her crawl space, nor a flooding or mold problem in her basement. She finally has a peace of mind again that she hasn't had since moving in. We love helping our community and providing products that they can rely on!

Terry had plans to sell his home, but he had a problem with water in his crawl space that he needed to fix first. The water in his crawl space had caused mold to grow and he knew the excessive moisture would soon create an expensive foundation issue, so he called us, Frontier Basement Systems. We had our trained inspector, Stephen, come to Terry's home to look around his crawl space. After taking a few reference photos and tests, Stephen sat down with Terry to discuss what he found and what products we had that could solve his problem.
A lot of the wood beams in Terry's crawl space had a moisture content rating around 20%. At this rating is when the wood starts to show signs of decay. It is so high from the water puddles evaporating into Terry's home (and wood beams). The relative humidity in Terry's crawl space was 73.3%, which indicates how much water vapor is in the air. Relative humidity above 60% is the perfect environment for mold, mold spores, and dust mites to thrive. If you have mold growth, but no apparent excessive moisture, check to see if you have an open vent because when warm outside air enters your crawl space it is cooled, which raises RH.
Stephen had a few suggestions for Terry, such as crawl space encapsulation and installing a dehumidifier to keep the RH at bay and to prevent mold from growing back, but Terry was focused on keeping the costs low and the water out.
Stephen then suggested one of our reliable sump pumps, the SuperSump Plus, which has a top-rated 1/3 HP Zoeller cast iron pump that offers reliability and high-volume pumping (like 2,280 gallons of water per hour). It also has a built-in alarm that alerts when the water level rises too high. Stephen also suggested our LawnScape Outlet and our IceGuard product, which will ensure Terry's crawl space doesn't flood if discharge lines become frozen, due to its perforated top. To help with Terry's current mold problem, Stephen also suggested Mold-X2, which is a spray that removes mold staining and another spray that prevents it from occurring again, as long as the environment has changed.
Terry agreed to the waterproofing products and Mold-X2 and our crew installed them!
He now has a dry crawl space that isn't a watery mess!

James had lived in his home for over 30 years. Over the years he had some moisture issues in his crawl space that had led to him having to have rotted wood replaced. He didn't want to deal with his crawl space anymore, so he looked into the encapsulation process and what companies in the area could do the work. His family had also suffered from indoor allergens, and with mold, mold spores, and dust mites being a few of the most common of them, it would be hitting two birds with one stone to get his crawl space encapsulated.
He found our website and decided to take advantage of our free inspections and estimates, so he called us up! We set him up with one of our trained inspectors, John, and he was out in no time to meet James at his home. John looked around the property and crawl space, took reference photos and moisture tests. He then sat down with James to discuss with him what he found and what products we had that could help his crawl space with its moisture issue.
Both the wood moisture test and relative humidity test was very high. This indicates that there was a lot of water vapor in the air and moisture that got absorbed into the wood support beams. A high relative humidity, such as 73, is the perfect environment for mold, mold spores, and dust mites. John knew exactly what to do with James' crawl space.
John told James all about how our encapsulation system works and James was very impressed. Our CleanSpace liner is 20mil thick and made out of 7 layers of polyethylene composition and polyester-cord reinforcement, which is made to reduce moisture. We install a drainage matting under the liner to help trapped water find its way to the designated drain easier.
James was ready to get the project started!
We also installed a few products to help get the collected water out of the crawl space, like the SuperSump Pump, IceGuard, and LawnScape Outlet. Along with our powerful SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier to keep humidity below 55% and also our sturdy EverLast Door, which has a water and airtight seal!
James now has the perfect crawl space! He gets to reap the benefits of not only healthy breathing air, but also lowered energy costs!

This 1970's home was having some foundation problems. It had acquired a few cracks over the years and Alyson only noticed the cracks getting worse. She had plans to sell her "starter home" since the property value was increasing in her area, but she first had to fix the cracks that were decreasing her home's value. She began googling foundation repair companies to get quotes. She was looking for a long-lasting fix at a good cost. She found our website and looked around in our foundation repair photos. Alyson decided to take advantage of our free inspections with a trained inspector. We booked her right away with our experienced inspector, Nick.
Nick came out to Alyson's home and looked around. He noted the cracks, a bowing wall, and the permanent damage they could easily do to the home. He sat down with Alyson and discussed with her what foundation repair options we had for her and her problem.
They came to the conclusion that our Geo-Lock Wall Anchor was the perfect solution.
The Geo-Lock permanently stabilizes basement walls, offering the best opportunity to straighten the walls without the cost and disruption of foundation replacement.
Heavy-duty, galvanized earth anchors are embedded in stable, undisturbed soil outside your foundation wall. Each anchor is connected by a steel rod to a wall plate that provides clamping pressure against the inside of the foundation wall. This method also offers the potential to straighten the wall back to its original position.
Now Alyson is worry-free and can look forward to selling her home!

Denney and his wife were tired of stressing about the flooding in their basement after every heavy rainfall. The issue was already creating mold and mildew. They were worried about the integrity of their structure and knew if they waited any longer, it would only cost more down the road. They decided to call different companies for quotes. Our trained inspector, Lynn, went out to their home and assessed the situation. He took a few reference photos and moisture tests and sat down with the homeowners to discuss what he found and how we could help them. When asked about the most water the couple has ever had to take on they said that it was almost as if they had a waterfall on their wall. It filled up a water tub and they were always left to clean up the mess.
We knew exactly what we could do to make sure they never had to stress again about their space flooding!
Lynn told them all about our waterproofing products and even about one of our wall reinforcing products to help their bowing wall problem.
The couple was ready for a lasting solution, so they agreed and were ready for the products to be installed!
Our crew installed our WaterGuard product to capture water from the surface ground and wall. The collected water will go to our TripleSafe Sump Pump, which has THREE different pumps that will automatically change out based on the needs of your space. The water will then be pumped out of the house, through the discharge lines and out of our discharge outlet, which is green to better camouflage into the surrounding grass. Our crew also installed our IceGuard, which will ensure that your space doesn't flood if your discharge lines become frozen.
We also installed our BrightWall Paneling System so the stained walls were BRIGHT and nice looking!
For the bowing wall, we installed CarbonArmor to stabilize it.
Denney and his wife now have a dry and supported basement! Call us today for your free estimate!
Lew was having problems with his basement flooding during heavy rains about five years ago. He decided to wait it out, because he didn't use his space for much anyways. Five years later, his basement is still flooding but now serious damage is starting to occur. The wood in the space is rotting, mold is growing, and he was worried about his family breathing in moldy air, as well as his floors weakening from the excessive moisture. He looked around the internet until he found us, Frontier Basement Systems!
He took advantage of our free inspections and estimates and scheduled an appointment right away! Chris, our trained inspector, met him at his home and Lew told him the issues he was having. Chris looked around his basement and took photos of the damages for reference. Chris then sat down with Lew in the comfort of his own home and went over what products we had that could solve his moisture issues!
First things first, Lew needed a reliable sump pump that could take all of the water OUT of his home. We had the perfect pump for that! Our TripleSafe Sump Pump has not one, but THREE different pumps that automatically change based on your homes needs.
The first pump is a heavy-duty 1/3 horsepower (HP) cast-iron Zoeller pump that does most of the pumping, handling up to 2,600 gallons of water per hour. The second pump is a 1/2 HP pump that operates automatically if Pump 1 fails or if greater pumping volume is needed (up to 6,200 gallons per hour), and pump 3 is a battery-operated pump that turns on automatically if power fails, so you won't have to stay up at night during a nasty storm worrying!
We also installed our IceGuard product. It has a perforated top that ensures water will not go back into your basement if discharge lines were to freeze.
They now have a dry basement and a new place to store their belongings!
We love helping homeowners find the best solutions for them and their home.

Denney was having issues with his forever home. The hydrostatic pressure from the soil outside of his basement was causing his walls to bow and crack. This led to major flooding issues in his basement. During heavy rains, he was able to fill up bins of water that came in through the cracks. He noticed the problem almost a year ago and it only got worse. After seeing mold growth and the cracks only getting longer, he decided it was time to call a professional before the structural integrity of his home was altered.
Our trained inspector, Lynn, met Denney and his wife and their home. Lynn inspected the basement and took a relative humidity test. The test started an 80% RH level, which made his basement the perfect environment for mold, mold spores, and dust mites!
Lynn came back upstairs and sat down with Denney. Lynn went over what solutions we had that could fix Denney's basement.
After learning about our CarbonArmor wall reinforcing fiber. Denney was all in!
The CarbonArmor system permanently stabilizes your home's foundation walls. CarbonArmor uses fiber-reinforced polymers which are 10-times stronger than steel, yet flexible enough to contour tightly against your basement wall. The ArmorLock brackets bind and secure the CarbonArmor straps to your floor joists making the CarbonArmor solution fast, non-invasive and ideal for quickly stabilizing bowing and leaning walls.
Carlos's crew got to work and now Denney has a peace of mind that he has deserved for a year!
We are so glad to be able to find lasting solutions for homeowners!

Tom has had concerns with his crawl space since he moved into it 5+ years ago with his wife. He realized his crawl space needed to be encapsulated to fix the mildew and mold issue. He only went into his crawl space 1-2 times a year, but each time its condition had gotten worse. Tom noticed soft spots on his floor and didn't appreciate his floors being cold during the winter. After seeing our coupon in Joelton's Shopper Magazine, he knew it was a sign to get his crawl space fixed before serious issues arose in the future.
Our friendly inspector came to their home and after inspecting the crawl space he told them all about our encapsulation products! Installing our Drainage Matting and CleanSpace Vapor Barrier would do the job of reducing the space's relative humidity. Encapsulating their crawl space will help to make their floors warmer in the winter as well because it seals in all of your expensive heat! Tom and his wife loved all of the products and couldn't wait to get their peace of mind back again!
Our crew also our Mold-X2 System to help reduce mold and also our almost indestructible EverLast crawl space door (which has an airtight seal!!)
Tom and his wife now have a dry and healthy crawl space that they no longer have to worry about! They are saving on energy bills and are reaping all of the benefits of having an encapsulated crawl space made possible by the best products and trained specialists!
