Homeowners Chris and Candice were planning on staying within their home located in Bethel Park Pennsylvania. To ease the concerns of these homeowners our sales advisor Tom visited the couple to assess and address the waterproofing unsettling feeling within the basement.
Tom proposed installation of WaterGuard. This drainage system involves removing a section of the basement flooring, creating a trench on a bed of gravel and loose rock, resistant to clogging. This dainage system is connected directly to the SuperSump pump system ensuring that water cannot collect around the basement foundation. This system along with the UltraSump battery back up will protect their basement even during power failures.

A homeowner in Bethel Park had water and mud seeping through his front basement wall. He attended the South Hills Home Show in the spring and visited the Baker's Waterproofing booth to get started on finding a reliable solution.
Kevin Smith inspected the home and took a closer look at the unique foundation. The foundation footing seemed to be crumbled in some areas or didn't extend past the first block. The concrete floor slab was extremely thin as well, making it impossible to install our typical drain. Luckily, Baker's has an alternative solution to this drain, our FlowGuard drain.
While on the job, Mike Pry and his crew cleaned off the walls with a mold stain remover and attached our durable vapor barrier on the damp walls. Further, Mold-X2 prevents mold growth while CleanSpace prevents water and humidity from passing through the barrier. The crew placed the thin FlowGuard drain on top of a bed of clean gravel with flange-less WaterGuard buried beside it. They tucked the vapor barrier behind the drain's wall flange to catch water and water vapor. Mike installed our SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier to keep humidity low in the basement. Now, water is redirected into the TripleSafe sump pump system.
Mike and his crew successfully fixed this basement in 2 days. Now, the homeowner is happy with the result of a dry, healthy basement!
Homeowners in Bethel Park, PA plan to sell their home, but first needed to address their damp, moldy basement. A Real Estate Agent from Howard Hannah handled this project for the sellers.
Exposure to mold can cause harmful effects to those residing in the home. Water in the basement caused mold to grow on the walls, just one harmful effect of a damp basement.
Our Service Advisor, Shawn Evans, inspected the house to design a solution for the wet and moldy basement. Our Foreman, Dave Cain, and his crew installed our CleanSpace Wall System on 36 feet of the walls. This durable, mold-resistant vapor barrier easily attaches to basement walls with drilled-in fasteners. In conjunction with the wall system, Dave and his crew installed our perimeter French drainage system. This interior drain was placed on top of clean gravel in a small perimeter trench, then was back-filled with more gravel. Lastly, new concrete was hand-poured over the trench. The drainage system connects to our Triple Safe Sump Pump System to keep all water out of the basement. At the same time the crew dug the perimeter trench, they dug a small sump pit in one corner of the basement, then completed the same installation process for the sump pump system. In this case, the sump pump liner contains 1 powerful Zoeller pump with a discharge line that was placed inside the trench to connect to the existing downspout. On the exterior, our crew installed our LawnScape Outlet, an underground downspout extension that allows water to daylight far away from the house.
This project was successfully completed in just one day!
A homeowner called our office to express concern for the wet basement in her condo. After every rain, she would find puddles of water in her home--the kind of stress no one should have to deal with. She was displeased with the look of her water-damaged basement walls and needed a solution as soon as possible. Our Service Advisor, Nick Freda, inspected this Bethel Park, PA condo to design a fitting proposal.
Our Foreman, Dave Cain, and his crew installed our BrightWall Paneling, interior French drain, TripleSafe Sump Pump with our UltraSump Battery Back-Up Pump, and LawnScape Outlet. All of these products work together to create a permanent waterproofing solution.
Our BrightWall rigid plastic paneling system was mechanically attached to the basement walls. The waterproof panels will never peel or flake like other wall systems might. Also, all wall leaks will be directed behind the panels into our interior French drain. All water will be channeled towards our TripleSafe Sump Pump System. The pumps work hard to keep this basement dry at all times, even in the event of a power outage. Once discharged from the home, all water will travel through underground downspout piping. Water that tries flooding into the home will be discharged and eventually surface through our LawnScape Outlet far away from the foundation.
A Bethel Park homeowner discovered water leakage in their basement and garage. This homeowner wants to keep these areas dry to prevent mold growth and reduce odors. No longer should they have to worry about keeping their belongings dry and cleaning up these areas every time it rains. Thanks to our permanent solutions, we can give this homeowner peace of mind with a moisture-free home.
Our foreman, Dave Cain, and his crew installed a variety of our waterproofing products to address the issue. The crew dug a small trench along the perimeter of the basement and garage. Our internal French drain was installed to collect water and direct it to the sump pump. Our Trench Drain was also installed along the inside of the garage door to collect any water that would flood into the area. After installing the drains, the crew back-filled the trench with clean gravel and poured new concrete. Our TripleSafe Sump Pump was placed in a small pit in the corner of the basement, which is the lowest area of the home. This way, it is much easier for water to channel through the drain into the sump pump. Our IceGuard anti-freeze fitting was attached to the discharge line directly outside of the foundation. This line will direct water through the slots and away from the home in the event that the discharge line clogs or freezes. All water that our sump pump discharges escapes through our LawnScape Outlet. This green, grated outlet is connected to the downspout extension, and rests flush against the lawn. The crew also installed our SaniDry Sedona in the basement to keep dry air circulating throughout the area.
Even during rainy seasons, the homeowner's basement and garage is guaranteed to stay dry!
The Timbridge Condo Complex located in Bethel Park needed to repair several walkways leading up to their beloved condos. Several of the front stoops had sunken, causing potential trip hazards to anyone visiting the residents of the condos. We repaired and raised the slabs with PolyLEVEL concrete leveling foam.
PolyLEVEL is the result of years of R & D! More innovative than the messy cement-based technique of mud jacking, PolyLEVEL is a lightweight polyurethane foam material that is easily pumped underneath concrete through small penny sized holes. The polymer foam reacts upon being injected, raising the slabs back to their original position. The area is then properly cleaned and the holes are patched with cement.
PolyLEVEL is great solution to repairing sunken concrete slabs of driveways, patios, sidewalks, and even pool decks. The repair system comes with a 5 year warranty, and can even be installed in less than 15 minutes depending on the size of the job.
In Bethel Park the front 38ft. wall, which consisted of both the garage and basement, was bowing. On top of this, homeowners Karen and Andy needed a preventive waterproofing system in their basement so they could finish the area as a game room.
We repaired the wall by installing 13 GeoLock wall anchors and 2 Channel anchors. Both systems work together to keep the wall securely in place to prevent further movement. Channel anchors were placed where the wall was bowing the most.
In the basement we installed a French drainage system, and a SuperSump sump to move water to the outside. Additionally since the homeowners wanted to finish the basement we applied ThermalDry wall insulation to the walls to insulate and to protect the wall from water damage.
Greg and Judy of Bethel Park have been living in their home for nearly 10 years. Recently they have been experiencing water leaking into their basement through the front and right side walls. This was definitely starting to cause concern for couple since they were causally looking to sell their home. (On average a house is devalued by 20% if there are any water issues pertaining to the house.)
Service Advisor Tom Eckersley proposed a SuperSump sump pump system, and a sub-floor, interior french drainage system against front and side walls. Additionally, they had their downspout extended 40 ft. with LawnScape drain piping submerge in the soil of the yard to direct water further away from the home. Lastly since the block foundation walls were porous with water coming in through cracks, BrightWall white panels were mechanically fastened to the walls to block wall leakage and to brighten up the space.
The job was completed in 2 days and Greg and Judy were very pleased to see that their home was waterproofed and ready to be placed on the market.
