    The technology for the French drains made more sense than any of the other people we talked to. Our sales guy [Chris] was very informative and not too pushy. Rich and his crew were great when they were here.

Before and after photos from jobs I've worked on:
  • Bowing Basement Walls in O'Hara PA
    Before
    Bowing Basement Walls in O'Hara PA
    After

    In O’Hara Pennsylvania a homeowner needed to repair the bowing walls in his basement. If left unrepaired, bowing walls can lead to cracks that allow for water leakage into your basement or worse the wall could collapse all together. We stabilized the wall in place by installing our patented GeoLock wall anchors. This anchoring system is a less costly alternative then completely replacing the wall; the anchor holds the wall in place, preventing any further movement. We also fastened our BrightWall semi-rigid panels to the wall. The panels protect from wall leakage and will even improve the overall look of the basement with its bright white finish.

  • Basement Waterproofing with Underground Discharge Extension in Mount Pleasant, PA
    Before
    Basement Waterproofing with Underground Discharge Extension in Mount Pleasant, PA
    After

    To address the basement water issues, our crew installed an interior waterproofing system in Mount Pleasant. On the home's exterior, we attached our IceGuard discharge fitting and LawnScape underground extension. IceGuard has slotted openings that gives water an emergency exit before it has the chance to reenter the basement (helpful if the line ever clogs or freezes). LawnScape consists of underground piping and a grated outlet to successfully direct water far away from the home.

  • Latrobe, PA Spare Room Waterproofing
    Before
    Latrobe, PA Spare Room Waterproofing
    After

    This Latrobe homeowner was having serious issues with water accumulating in both their basement's foundation walls and the walls of their spare room.

    To reduce this water accumulation, our crew installed a WaterGuard Below-Floor drainage system. This system is then connected directly to the newly installed SuperSump sump pump, ensuring that water cannot collect around the basement's foundation ever again.

After a free inspection, Foreman Ken installed CleanSpace vapor liner to the floor and stone foundation to ensure the space would be converted from a dirty useless area to a dry usable storage space. Most importantly, Cleanspace will reduce humidity and improve air quality.

  • Vapor Barrier Installation in Uniontown PA
    Before
    Vapor Barrier Installation in Uniontown PA
    After

These white semi-rigid plastic panels are specially designed to block water from coming through walls.

To ease the concern of the homeowner, Service Advisor Chris suggested to install several products to waterproof the basement including: WaterGuard, a below floor drainage system; a sump pump system, the SuperSump; and drainage matting. Together, these products turned a wet, damp, dirty space into a dry, usable and more clean area. Now the homeowners can store their belongings and tools without concern!

    Before
    Moldy Basement Walls in Grindstone PA
    After

We applied CleanSpace, a durable vapor barrier liner to the foundation that is used as a shield to condensation. CleanSpace has “Ultra Fresh" woven into the 20 ml thick material that will help fight the presence of mold and to reduce humidity. This liner is a great barrier for any finished drywall or paneling.

    After

    A Belle Vernon homeowner had noticed that his basement had cracks along the walls and was taking in water as a result of the damages. After having a Service Advisor from Baker's Waterproofing come out and asses the situation, they recommended the installation and utilization of GeoLock wall anchors. These specialized anchors are galvanized steel rods that are anchored to the wall by hard-packed soil from the home's foundation to prevent further inward movement of the structure. Once they are in place they give the wall the full support and stabilization that it needs.

    Before
    A Basement Wateproofing Solution in Monongahela, PA
    After

    Baker’s Waterproofing installed a basement waterproofing system that included our SuperSump and connected WaterGuard interior French drain. The drain was easily rested on top of the footer with minimal disturbance to the floor. The drain collects intruding water along the wall and directs it to the SuperSump where it is then pumped outside. Once the drain and the sump pump were installed concrete was poured over to restore the floor to how it was originally.

  • Foundation Settlement Repair in Clarksburg  WV
    Before
    Foundation Settlement Repair in Clarksburg  WV
    After

    Gary and Jeff of Clarksburg WV were seeing that their home was sinking or settling away from the rest of the house. To remedy this problem we installed our patented Push Piers System to stabilize their foundation. This system is a great alternative solution to having your foundation completely replaced which can be messy and very costly. Instead these steel piers were hydraulically driven into the ground to more capacity bearing soil, transferring the weight of the home on to the piers. This provides instant stabilization and the chance of lifting your house back to its original state.

  • Moldy Basement Walls Restored in Vandergrift, PA
    Before
    Moldy Basement Walls Restored in Vandergrift, PA
    After

    In Vandergrift, Pennsylvania we applied our BrightWall vapor barrier system to the dirty mold prone basement walls. These semi-rigid panels were mechanically fastened to the wall. Unlike other solutions like sealants or paint that easily chip, our panels are 100% waterproof so they will not become damaged due to excessive water exposure. This is a great addition to any unfinished basement!
