Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Partial Basement Waterproofing System in Pittsburgh, PA

Wednesday, August 14th, 2019 by Mallory Finch


For the past few years, a Pittsburgh homeowner had water seeping through her basement walls. Up to a few inches when it rained heavily. She was concerned about this dampness intruding her home.

Now, she wants to finish her basement.

The homeowner searched us online to schedule her free estimate and inspection. Our certified expert, Doug Ross, completed a thorough inspection of the home's foundation. Doug right-sized the waterproofing system to fit the homeowner's immediate needs.

Our team repaired this damp basement at a later time.


Rich Rotolo and his crew installed our proven basement waterproofing system.

Our crew installed a TripleSafe system (with 1 sump pump), 69 feet of our WaterGuard/FlowGuard drain at the foundation footing (with 2 inspection ports), and 52 feet of CleanSpace vapor barrier on the walls.

On the outside of the foundation, we attached 1 IceGuard fitting on the sump pump discharge line. The line extended 12 feet away from the home to daylight.

The homeowner's brand new system will keep these areas dry. Now, she can finish this usable space.
