    Reputation and friends recommendation and your system seems to make sense to me not just throwing a corrugated pipe in a trench and hoping it won't clog over time.

    Scott and his helper were awesome...They had the job done very quick and cleaned up thoroughly, like they were never there minus our porch not being sunk anymore. They explained everything they were doing as they were doing it. Even gave me a pair of glasses to wear since I wanted to watch just in case anything happened my eyes were protected.

    Ms. H. of Pittsburgh, PA

    Customer Testimonial

              The representative sent out to my house was excellent. Out of 4 waterproofers, he was the only one who evaluated and diagnosed correctly. The other 3 companies immediately said sump pump. Your representative looked inside and said it did not need a sump pump and that it was an outside problem, and gave an estimate for installing new piping. I did not use Baker's only because the plumbing company. I had used extensive cameras to check out inside pipes and determine which sections of piping were compromised, but your man was right on target with diagnostic. The pipe had settled and was pitched the wrong way and also cracked. I have told many people that if they need a waterproofing company I would say use Baker's, as the man who came out was very knowledgable, but wanted to replace more piping and a new gravel pit and the use of the cameras showed the problem was fixed with less.

    Customer Testimonial

              I chose Baker's after seeing their advertising. I called for an appointment which was easy to set up. The presentation on the computer was excellent and our Service Advisor Tom explained about what needed to be done very clearly. Our installers Ken and Tyler were GREAT!!! Very professional and considerate. Worked very hard and explained everything they were doing. Always checked with us if they had a question and explained things very clearly if we had a question.We were very concerned about the two pipes going out into the yard from the sump pumps. They did a very thorough job of installing the pipes and were very careful of the plants and landscape.

    Customer Testimonial

              I am very pleased that I chose Bakers Waterproofing to fix my bowed basement walls. Tom, our salesman, was very nice and professional during the sales visit. He did not pressure us and that was the main reason he made the sale. All our questions were answered, and we felt confident that we had made the right choice. I had to push back the initial install date for the eight carbon fiber straps that now lock my walls into place. Baker’s office staff were very accommodating with our schedule. On the day of the install, (Aug. 19) Nate and his crew, Stephen and Curtis arrived and got right to work. Nate answered some questions that I hadn't asked Tom, and the job went flawlessly. They got the job done in less time than expected and were on their way. Cleaning up after them wasn't necessary. The carbon fiber straps look professionally installed because they were...Thanks Guys ! I won't hesitate to recommend Bakers Waterproofing to anyone asking for a job well done at a competitive price.

  • "Tom's honesty was fantastic news!" Read Full Testimonial

    Cynthia S. of Sewickley, PA

    Customer Testimonial

              Tom stopped out to see about a water leak through a concrete block in our townhome. After checking out the basement, he also looked around outside where the leak was occuring. After a quick assessment, he told us it was not a foundation issue, but a downspout boot was broken and the drain was clogged, causing overflowing during heavy rain and seeping through the porous brick! I was shocked that a basement waterproofing company would be so honest as to say they were not what we needed! He recommended we consult a plumber to clear the line and fix the broken boot that was covered with mulch and dirt. I may not have needed the services of Baker's today, but if I ever do, they will be the first company I call! Tom's honesty was fantastic news!
