This homeowner was having some major issues in their finished basement space. The water was seeping in through the walls and the humidity was high. They were having some major issues, since this was more than just storage, it was a living space too! They were ahving mold on some of their things, and were concerned that a major water problem could wipe out the entire basement. They had drywall, which was going to hve to be ripped out along the bottom because it was soaked and molding.
We cam in and installed the WaterGuard trenching system along the perimeter of the basement. This collects water as it comes through the walls and channels it to the SuperSump, then pumped outside. A FloodRing was also placed around the hot water heater. This device captures water in the event of the leak or burst in the tank, and then drains it directly into the sump well, preventing water damage to the floors. A SaniDry was also installed to help with the humidity levels in the air. The drain line for this goes directly to the sump as well, so it never has to be emptied. No more hauling buckets of water everyday! Theis basement is now, for the first time, dry and comfortable.
We provide customers the opportunity to better the quality of their home and feel safe known they have protected their number one investment. For these homeowners, getting that peace of mind was never up for question. Our expert inspectors located the source of their water issues and calculated a perminate solution.

See how this home went from crawlspace to CleanSpace!
This homeowner called because of water, mold, and debris in the crawl space. Our inspector found a lot of waste from other contractors underneath the home. Conditions like this it increases the chance of moisture accumulation, which leads to mold. He also noted mold on the home’s floor joists. Mold in your home is problematic for people with asthma and allergies. It also eats away at the structure of your home.
When our team arrived the first thing they did was remove all of the trash and old insulation. Insulation absorbs water vapor making it heavy. This causes it to sag away from the subfloor rendering it an ineffective breeding ground for mold. They installed our SuperSump pump system and SaniDry CX to insure that the crawl space remains free of moisture. The finished product is a fully encapsulated CleanSpace that allows the home to maintain healthy air flow.
This family in Brentwood, TN wanted their home to be more comfortable. They spent quite a bit on their home as it was, and were frustrated by the various temperature differences in certain rooms, and cold floors.
They had a member of our team come and do a FREE energy audit to come up with the best permanent solutions for their home.
We insulated their attic properly but sealing holes and light fixtures. We used our SilverGlo panels in the basement work shop, and attic. We added Clean Space to their crawl space and made sure everything was sealed from top to bottom.
Their home now has clean air throughout the house, and their energy bills are going to be less which will pay for their project over a period of time! We can do this for you too!
This family bought their home 2 years prior and were living with uncomfortable rooms and sky high energy bills. They wanted to keep the lady bugs out of their attic, and were concerned about the lack of insulation in their attic. Their main concern was lowering their energy bills and had already replaced their 6 HVAC systems and replaced the windows throughout the house.
After an inspection from Frontier, they began to understand how the whole house is system that works together or against itself depending on how the house is built. They decided to go with our open cell spray foam insulation to seal holes that air was seaping though, and use our higher grade insulation to keep the heated and cooled air inside the house!

Water coming in from the side wall and beneath the garage was affecting this families quality of life. With continuous clean ups after heavy rain it was time for a permanent solution.
A waterproofing system comprising of a Triplesafe Twin pump, and a discharge line taking the water away from the property with the aid of a IceGuard and a lawnscape outlet will ensure that water is able to exit the finished basement and no longer pose a damage threat.

After owning this rental home for 30 years the home owner decided it was time to sell. The home owner does not go in to the crawl space and to her knowledge did not have any moisture or mold problems upstairs. After listing the home on the market an inspector told them about moisture and mold concerns in the crawl space. This home will not pass inspections for sale as-is.
Killing the mold under the home was a priority for the home owner.
Water in the crawl space was easy to spot once entering the space. The relative humidity in the crawlspace was 77%. The wood had a mosituere content reading of 18.5%.
Looking back they had noticed a couple soft spots in the floor near the center of the home but had not thought anything of it. These unfavorable conditions and mold eating away at floor joist had weakened the supports.
Treating the floor joist with a powerful cleaning solution, Mold-X2, kills off the mold and fungus growing there. It was important to not only kill and clean the mold off but also prevent it from growing again. By encapsulating the crawl space the conditions can be controlled making the space intolerable for mold, mildew, and fungus growth.
Lining the crawl space with CleanSpace 20mil plastic vapor barrier will keep rain and ground water out of the space.
Moisture is also found in the air and can effect the condition of the environment. The SaniDry Sedona, a compact dehumidifier, treats the air and pumps moisture pulled from the air to the sump pump liner.
A liner and sump pump collect and pump water out of the crawl space to a discharge line that runs further out on the property, safely away from the home and foundation.
With the crawl space treated and protected the air and wood will be much healthier; creating a healthier environment for the home above. A permanent solution to a scary mold and fungus problem offers value to this home and peace of mind to whomever buys it for their family.
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.
Franklin foundation was settling and needed to be raised.
This Franklin family was concerned about cracks in the brick and wall cracks in the sheetrock.
Another contractor had told them that one wall was leaning out.
We found the building to have settled ½' in several areas and 5/8' at one corner. We also found a crack no one else had found. It helped explain a crack on the back of the house which had been incorrectly diagnosed by another contractor.
A thorough inspection and explanation set us apart from the competition.
Considering the load of the home by type of structure, roof, foundation, measurements and the product to be installed, Ten 3 inch push piers were installed at 5-foot spacing.
The 288 Push pier low profile assembly utilizes high-strength round steel tube and a load transfer bracket to stabilize and lift sinking or settling foundations. the foundation bracket is secured against the existing footing and pier sections are driven hydraulically through the foundation bracket and into the soil below using the combined structural weight and any contributory soil load as resistance. Pier sections are continuously driven until a suitable load bearing soil is encountered. At that point, the structure either begins to lift or the target pressure load is achieved. The weight of the structure is then transferred from the unstable soil to the foundation brackets, through the piers, and to firm load-bearing soil or bedrock.
8 Push piers were installed along the exterior of the foundation and 2 on interior corners each driven down to load-bearing soil at an average depth of 10'2.
With the load of the home secure on suitable load bearing stratum, this family can rest easy.
Mr. Lawrence was experiencing foundation issues in his 1980's home that he had just recently moved into. He complained of bouncy and cracked floors. He was worried about the condition of his bathroom floor the most. All of these issues came from moisture in his crawl space, which led to mold growing on his wood foundation. The mold got worse and his wood panels began to rot; this caused the floor above to become "bouncy." If the rotting became any worse and proper support was not installed, the bathroom floor could have easily fallen through.
Mr. Lawrence and his significant other were on the hunt for the best and most affordable solution. They were looking for companies that provided quality, a great price, and trustworthy warranties.
They got in contact with Frontier Basement Systems and were happy with the solutions we presented.
Our inspector, Chris Trigg, talked to them about our SmartJack system and answered their questions, then our crew got to work,
Carlos Guox and his crew installed our steel SmartJack and steel supporting beam. The SmartJack is a high-capacity, fully adjustable pier that is designed to stop settling and raise your sagging floors!
Thanks to SmartJacks, Mr. Lawrence's joists have enough support to hold the weight of people and furniture AND he no longer is the owner of bouncy floors!
