In 1920, this Pittsburgh home was built on a sandstone foundation. Overtime, the ever-changing weather took a toll on the foundation of the home. When it rained hard, water seeped through the walls in multiple spots and puddled in the basement.
Originally, we met with the homeowner and installed a partial perimeter drainage system with our TripleSafe sump pump system and IceGuard fitting. One year later, during all the rainstorms in 2018, the foundation began leaking in new areas. Our team added onto the existing CleanSpace vapor barrier and WaterGuard and FlowGuard drainage system. The crew also added a 3-foot long grated TrenchDrain in front of the basement entryway.
Basement leaks are a common issue that's rarely a one-time occurrence. As time goes on, this porous foundation was bound to leak sooner or later. Now, the leakage problem is controlled and we returned this basement back into a dry living space.
