The sunken and cracked concrete around your Ulster County home is both an eyesore and a safety hazard. Whether you've experienced an uneven patio or cracked driveway, the problem is likely to get worse. Luckily, we offer an innovative solution!
Our experts use PolyLevel, a superior polyurethane foam solution. Small holes are drilled in the concrete, the foam is injected and the expanding foam lifts the concrete. The majority of contractors you will call use mudjacking instead of foam. Mudjacking is heavier, requires larger holes in the concrete and does not last as long as PolyLevel.

Jeanene W. was experiencing trouble with keeping her basement area free of both unwanted moisture and pests. Her family's home was built in the 1960s and, like many other homes in the area, its foundation was starting to show the effects of the passing of time. It was eroded in some spots and had holes where animals and water could sneak through.
Our team at Basement Systems of NY was happy to help and recommended a Sunhouse Window Well and an Everlast Window, both products that are specifically designed to regulate a home's temperature while keeping rain, weeds and animals out. We also sealed the holes in the foundation with out own concrete blocks, and in the end Jeanene was left with a sealed, clean basement!
This homeowner contacted Basement Systems of New York to see how we could help their home, specifically remediate the water issue and foundation issues that they were having in their home.
After our specialist thoroughly inspected the owners' basement and the foundation it was inherent to him that they needed multiple systems to remove all the problems at hand.
To remove all the issues that the homeowners were having we had to install our patented WaterGuard system with a TripleSafe sump pump, a new 4" concrete slab, and SmartJacks.
By installing these three systems we were able to keep water out of their home, as well keep the foundation of their home from shifting out of alignment with the earth. Since installing these systems they have not experienced any issues and they have had a dry and useable basement.
Basement Systems of New York came to the rescue of these homeowners' crawl space. It was in dire need of fixing as both their home and crawl space were not 100% comfortable, along with this due to the moisture and humidity in their crawl space they had foundation issues, specifically related to their floor joists and support beams.
To make these homeowners crawl space more functional and comfortable we removed all the Fiber Glass insulation that was old and any Vapor Barriers that may have been in both sections of the crawl space that we focused our work on. We install our CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system along the floor and walls of the dirt section of the crawl space and install 3" of Closed Cell Foam in the ceilings of the two accessible portions of the crawlspace. Finally, we assisted the rotten 2" x 8" floor joists and remove the rotten 2x4 support, which we replaced with our SmartJack support system.
In doing all of this we were able to make their home extremely comfortable and stable, more importantly, we were able to remediate the musty/moldy smell that they would constantly smell throughout their home.
Basement Systems of New York was able to help this homeowner take control back of their home by alleviating the humidity they were experiencing, as well the uncomfortableness they were having in their home due to it not being encapsulated.
To make sure that their home reaped all the benefits of being more comfortable we installed several different products to do this, we specifically installed 900 SQFT of CleanSpace, 190 SQFT of Closed Cell Spray Foam and our SaniDry XP dehumidifier.
By installing these products we were able to block the home from the earth, which ultimately allowed for the home to be more comfortable and bring peace of mind back to them about living in the home.
This homeowner's foundation was in deep trouble and needed help to bring it back to its former beauty. Before this could be done our specialist needed to complete his inspection to get a grasp of how bad the situation was before he could propose a solution to the problem.
After conducting his inspection he realized that to bring their home's foundation back to where it used to be we would need to remove and replace approx 20 ft of the main girder and prep the floor with gravel and 6 Mil vapor barrier. We would need to as well pour a new 3" concrete floor and install our SmartJack support system to stabilize the floor joist and beams.
Once these systems were installed we were able to one alleviate the water problems that they were having, which were caused by the foundation issues in their home and two we were able to remove the foundation problems in their home which allow for them to have a sound home again that they did not have to consistently worry about daily.
This basement was completely wet, as this homeowner was having multiple issues with water penetrating her home.
To remediate the issues at hand we installed both systems inside and outside her home. The specific systems that we installed were our DryTrak perimeter waterproofing system with a SuperSump pump, IceGuard for their gutters and finally lawnScape for their yard.
Having implemented these three systems we were able to make sure for their home was secure from both the inside and outside regardless of the season they were in or the upcoming one. Since everything was installed they have noticed nothing but comfort and they are loving every minute of being able to reclaim their basement for additional space.
This homeowner's home was 90% secure from all the elements, the only element they had not accounted for was that dreaded humidity. To get their home to the 100% mark they needed to install several dehumidifiers due to the size of their home.
To accomplish this we installed four separate SaniDry Santa Fe dehumidifiers. Each dehumidifier works independently of each other and was calibrated specifically to keep relative humidity below 65% to keep the home as dry and comfortable as possible but to also stop mold from growing in the home.
Since these four independent dehumidifiers have been installed the homeowners have noticed nothing but a drastic change in the comfort level of their home.
These homeowners love to entertain both their friends and family members in their basement, which they had finished and installed a fully functional bar just for those occasions. The only problem was that it was extremely uncomfortable and they, as well their guests consistently realized this.
Luckily Basement Systems of New York was able to rid their basement of this problem and allow them to return to how they used to entertain before this problem revealed itself to them.
To fix the issue at hand we installed a SaniDry XP Basement Air System to keep humidity low with a duct kit, which has allowed for the system to run perfectly and allow them to continue to make many lasting memories in one of their favorite places.
This home's crawl space was uninhabitable by anyone or anything due to how uncomfortable it, even if they wanted to get into it they had no way to due to the entrance being so small.
To change this we installed our patented TurtL hatch, along with that we built a new block entrance along their stone foundation. To transform the uncomfortable crawl space and the home into something more comfortable we sprayed 3" of closed-cell foam on the foundation walls around the rim joists and rerouted the existing dryer vent into the box beam.
Once the work was completed we were able to transform their crawl space from one that was completely uncomfortable, not usable and unaccessible to an area they can access extremely quickly and easily.
This home was extremely humid throughout the entire year, no matter what the homeowner did they could not rid their home of humidity. Because of this, he decided to give us a call to see what could be done to help rid his home of the excess humidity he was dealing with. We were able to help them bring their home back to levels of normalcy after we installed our Basementaire Dehumidification system with condensate pumps. This system was able to take the moisture that they were experiencing from the humidity in their home and toss it outside. Since the installation of our system their humidity levels both absolute and relative have remained at normal respectable levels, which has allowed them to be more comfortable and lower their utility bills.
These new homeowners contacted Basement Systems of New York after purchasing their 1930s home. From what they could see, their block walls were buckling, as well they had water coming in that would pool and sit against their walls. At the time of their consultation, there was an inch of water on the floor. As well there were some stair-stepping cracks on two of their other walls. These homeowners reached out to us because of our expertise in the industry, as well as because of a previous project that we had completed in Chichester, New York.
Because of how thorough our Specialist was during their consultation these homeowners wanted us to fix the issues that were plaguing their home. To take care of their foundation and water issue we had to implement several of our patented systems.
First, we started by demolishing their old concrete slab and then removed the debris. Once completed we started digging the whole for our basin, as well as our discharge line for our TripleSafe sump pump.
Once our patented sump pump was fully installed we then applied our patented foundation support systems. We started by digging for our precast footings, which we leveled before installing our SmartJack systems. Once our SmartJacks were installed we then lifted, leveled, and support the home. We then installed our PowerBrace support systems with top lever brackets in the center of the basement. Once we completed the installation of our PowerBrace supports we, applied our CarbonArmor wall repair system on their wall where they were experiencing stair-step cracks. Finally, before laying our new concrete slab we applied our CleanSpace vapor barrier to the walls. Our vapor barrier will serve two purposes, one to give their basement a beautiful bright finish, and two to protect their basement from moisture, humidity and to keep cold drafts out.
Since installing our patented systems they have not had any water penetrate their home. More importantly, they have noticed a dramatic change upstairs due to the work we performed on their foundation. More specifically, their floors do not bounce anymore, and everything is level and structurally sound. They could not be any happier with how their project turned out. Overall they are ecstatic that they do not have to worry about their home ever falling down, or water coming in.
These homeowners wanted to finish their basement, the only problem was that in order to do so they needed to waterproof both their crawl space and basement before doing so. Because of this, they contacted us to see what could be done. After our inspection, we determined that in order to take care of the issue at hand we would need to install a dual system waterproofing system.
This homeowner called us out to their home to inspect the foundation of their home that was built in the 60s. They called us because one of their foundation walls in the basement was bowing inward due to water penetrating the home via cracks in the wall.
Upon our inspection, our Specialist realized that this would be an extremely easy problem to alleviate. To take care of the problem at hand we installed a full perimeter system comprised of our WaterGuard system and a Dual Stage sump pump. Along with our waterproofing system, we applied CarbonArmor to the walls and sealed the cracks in their walls.
Since applying these systems the homeowners have not had any water in their homes and they can sleep easy knowing that their walls are secure.
We were recently approached by a homeowner who faced an unfortunate incident involving their 60-year-old block foundation wall. During the late winter months of 2022, a car veered off the road, colliding with the wall. Fortunately, no severe injuries occurred, but the impact resulted in a significant deflection of approximately four inches. Recognizing the urgency and importance of restoring stability to their home, the homeowner sought our expertise. In this article, we will discuss the steps we took to repair and reinforce the damaged block foundation wall, ensuring the safety and longevity of the structure.
When confronted with a severely deflected foundation wall, our team faced unique challenges due to the extent of the damage, rendering our patented products unsuitable. As a result, we undertook the task of completely replacing the wall. This article details our meticulous approach, starting with ensuring the safety of the occupants, followed by excavation, demolition, and construction of a new foundation wall. We also highlight the importance of installing footing drains and applying a waterproofing membrane to enhance the structure's longevity and resilience.
After successfully completing the project to rebuild their compromised foundation wall, the homeowners now enjoy a renewed sense of security. No longer plagued by worries of an impending collapse, they are thrilled with the outcome of the project. In this article, we highlight the satisfaction and peace of mind experienced by homeowners, who can now fully trust in the stability and longevity of their home.
This homeowner sought our help to transform their wet basement into a usable space. After inspection, we identified the need for a year-round dry basement and implemented a Dual Waterproofing system. Traditional systems were not suitable due to the home's monolithic foundation, which utilized the slab as a footing. If we installed a traditional waterproofing system we would be compromising the structural integrity of the home. Additionally, cracks in the slab caused hydrostatic pressure. To resolve this, we installed separate laterals on both sides of the basement. To enhance the space without finishing it, we applied our Foamax panels, which provide a finished appearance. Moreover, we addressed structural concerns by providing permanent support through the installation of Smartjacks. Additionally, the crawl spaces required attention, as the existing beams spanned too large an area, and sections of the footing were undermined. Our solution involved pouring slabs into each of the crawl spaces to rectify these issues. At Basement Systems Of New York, we're committed to creating functional and structurally sound spaces while addressing waterproofing and structural challenges.
