Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Basement Waterproofing in Hopwood PA

Tuesday, February 7th, 2017 by Alyssa Petrella


Keith, a homeowner of Hopwood PA had already had a waterproofing system in his basement from another company. However the system was not efficiently keeping the entire basement dry during heavy rains. Keith saw our booth at a home show and decided to give Baker’s a call to waterproof the rest of his block foundation.


After a free assessment, we extended their existing basement waterproofing system by installing our sub-floor WaterGuard drain along the 20 ft. rear wall. The floor is dug 3 inches to give access to the footer. The drain is laid incrementally and back filled with stones and concrete to restore the floor. In the rear corner, we installed a more efficient sump pump called the SuperSump to pump water from the drain to the outside. Our cast-iron pumps allow the sump to work for extended amounts of time without fear of overheating and are clog resistant due to their no screen design.
