Foundation Repair Case Studies: Waterproofing and Bowed Wall Repair in Coraopolis

Tuesday, September 15th, 2015 by Alyssa Petrella

Challenge

Pamela of Coraopolis had a basement and garage with a concrete floor finish that had water intruding along the back wall from where the floor and wall meet. She had also noticed signs of structural damage with seeing vertical crack formations on the walls. Pamela needed a solution to both problems so that she could eventually place her home up for sale.

Solution

Service Advisor Nick Freda conducted the free estimate to design a custom solution for the homeowner. The rear foundation wall, which went into the basement and garage, was protected by having our patented WaterGuard drainage system placed against the foundation flush. WaterGuard is an award winning that can collect water along the both the foundation and from the floor; it also comes with a Lifetime Transferable Warranty.

The drainage system was connected to the already installed sump pump in the back left corner.  A WaterGuard port was also installed to easily give access to the system. Since the exterior was not accessible 5 of our Carbon Armor straps were installed along the 22’ garage wall to fix the ¾” bow.
