Challenge

A couple in Murrysville, PA had lived in their home for over 20 years before their basement began to leak. They used their basement for storage, and the water damaged some of their personal belongings.

They were concerned that the water was putting pressure on their foundation walls, and they started to see signs of mold growth. They wanted a company with quality products to repair their basement, so they called Baker’s Waterproofing.

Service Advisor Mark McCullough performed a free inspection at the home. He discussed with the couple their needs and concerns for the repair, and designed a custom solution with that in mind.

The couple scheduled their waterproofing installation that same day.

The day after Mark was at the home, the couple called him to come back out and look at their concrete walkway. Two of their slabs were sinking and one was lifted from the displaced slabs.

Mark scheduled them for concrete repair.

Solution

Concrete Repair

Foreman Scott Clark injected PolyRenewalâ„¢ foam solution beneath the two sinking slabs to raise it to the same height as the third slab. PolyRenewalâ„¢ is a light, but durable foam that raises and stabilizes the concrete and will not wash away over time.

Scott sealed the joints between the slabs with Caulk Joints solution, so that water will not seep beneath the slabs. 

Waterproofing

Foreman Rich Rotolo and his team installed the waterproofing system at the home.

They installed 56 feet of the WaterGuard drainage system and CleanSpace wall vapor barrier to capture and direct the water to the TripleSafe sump pump. MoldX-2 was sprayed on the walls to prevent against future mold growth.

A curtain drain was dug in the backyard of the home to limit the pooling of water within the yard.

SunHouse window wells were installed on two existing window wells to keep the water from seeping through that location and into the basement. The cover allows light to come into the basement, but keeps out moisture and debris. The homeowners now have a completely dry basement and a level sidewalk!
