A Wet Basement and Bowing Foundation Walls in Churchill

A Wet Basement and Bowing Foundation Walls in Churchill

A Wet Basement and Bowing Foundation Walls in Churchill A Wet Basement and Bowing Foundation Walls in Churchill

Our crew members got hard to work to repair this Churchill PA water damaged basement that also had foundation problems. The foundation walls were bowing inwardly and clearly the paint was chipping due to heavy condensation. Baker’s installed a basement waterproofing system that consisted of a sub-floor drain against the perimeter, a sump pump system, and white waterproof panels that protect the walls from water damage and even mold. Additionally the foundation was stabilized from further movement by installing GeoLock wall anchors. For a FREE estimate click HERE.

This Pittbsurgh, PA home was built back in 1960. The homeowner's son wanted to purchase this house, but needed a permanent fix for the sinking concrete slabs. The son did not want the burden of dealing with an unsafe walkway in his new home. Our Foreman, Scott Clark, and his crew injected our PolyLevel slab solution beneath this concrete slab. Our crew successfully lifted the slab over 3 inches, returning it to a safe and level position.

Our sales advisor Chris visited this Wilkinsburg home and assessed the faulty basement wall with a level to determine that the wall had bowed inward by 2 inches. Since the homeowner was unwilling to install wall anchors externally, the issue was addressed internally using the PowerBrace wall anchor system.

Basement Waterproofing Services in Pittsburgh, PA

If your home's basement has experienced flooding problems, damp walls and flooring, or has a constant smell of mold, odds are that you need basement waterproofing services. We have the skills and expertise to fix any wet basement, and we use our patented basement waterproofing system to fix any and all water problems once and for all.  One of the more popular repair methods we have used in many other Pittsburgh homes is the installation of an interior French drainage system using our WaterGuard® Below-Floor Drain. Our French drainage system works by pumping out any water that enters your basement away using a sump pump before it can ever cause any damage.

It is a proven fact that any home with a wet basement is extremely difficult to sell. According to USA today, a home with basement water issues is one of the most serious "red flags" to potential home buyers. Any basement waterproofing system we install includes a transferable lifetime dry basement warranty to future buyers, so their home is protected. So not only will your home be much easier to sell without the worries of water issues, but our proven solutions can help restore 10% or more of your home's market value! 


WaterGuard® Below-Floor Drain

For a typical basement, our WaterGuard® system is the best choice for waterproofing. This French drain was engineered to be installed below the floor slab, resting on top of the foundation footing. This keeps this drainage system out of the "mud zone", where drains can clog. In order to install the system, a section of the floor needs to be removed around the perimeter of the basement to create a trench. Sections of WaterGuard® are placed within the trench, resting on a bed of drainage stone, and the floor is restored.

Crawl Space Repair

The crawl space plays a pivotal role in your home, and since it is not used nearly as often as other areas, it's not as easy to tell when it needs repairs.  Most homeowners in the Pittsburgh area aren't aware of most crawl space issues, but there are distinct symptoms to be aware of such as cracked drywall in the home, uneven floors, various foul odors, and increased allergy and asthma symptoms. Baker's Waterproofing uses proven solutions such as our Vapor Barrier crawl space encapsulation system to keep the crawl space dry and also the SmartJack™ stabilizer to fix and prevent sagging floor joists and beams.

Job Stories From Pittsburgh, PA
Sump Pump Installation with Battery Backup in Pittsburgh, PA

Pittsburgh homeowners have not experienced basement water issues until very recently. The last freeze-thaw cycle caused water to seep through 3 foundation walls and flood 1/4'' of water onto the floor. The couple was concerned that the problem would continue to get worse, so they called Baker's Waterproofing.

Our Certified Waterproofing Specialist, Shawn Jackson, completed a thorough inspection of this home. Shawn learned that the couple wants to prevent any further issues and turn the basement back into a comfortable living space. He designed a proposal that they were satisfied with and they moved forward with the project.

Our crew, led by Foreman David Cain, reviewed the installation process with the homeowners before starting the work. David and his crew dug out a small perimeter trench only along 3 walls that they wanted to repair for the time being. They also dug a small sump hole in the low-lying corner of the basement. The crew placed our WaterGuard drain on top of the foundation footing and connected it to the airtight TripleSafe system. The crew backfilled the trench and sump hole with clean gravel and hand-poured fresh concrete.

This TripleSafe system includes 2 powerful Zoeller pumps and 1 UltraSump battery backup pump. It always includes a WaterWatch alarm, SuperLiner sump liner, airtight sump lid, and CleanPump stands. Now, the couple can count on their powerful and reliable sump system to keep their basement dry.

Competitor's Exterior Drainage System Failure Led to Basement Flooding

A competitor had previously installed an exterior drainage system to stop water from leaking through a foundation. However, the drain proved to be widely unsuccessful for this Pittsburgh house. The homeowner still had a large amount of water in her basement! Eventually, she decided to look into other options including an interior drainage system and sump pump system.

The homeowner scheduled a free inspection with a Baker's Waterproofing expert and hired us for the project.

Usually, existing drains alongside a foundation footing fails, because dirt clogs the pipe. The solution is our WaterGuard drain that is designed specifically to be an efficient, long-lasting interior waterproofing system. WaterGuard sits on top of the footing, instead of alongside it where there is clogging potential. All water is now caught in the WaterGuard drain and directed into our sump pump system. The TripleSafe  sump pump system includes a powerful pump and 1 UltraSump battery backup pump to help prevent basement flooding.

 

Dehumidifier and Waterproofing System in Pittsburgh, PA

Not more than 6 months at the new home, and a rainy season brings water flooding into the basement. The homeowner was hoping to address the immediate problem, and only pay for a partial perimeter system. Like any homeowner dealing with these same headaches, her goal is to have a dry and usable basement!

We inspected the home, designed a custom waterproofing solution, and took all of the homeowner's concerns into consideration before drafting the final quote. Then, at a later date, our crew arrived to repair the wet basement. This project included our unique WaterGuard below-floor drain, TripleSafe sump pump system, SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier, and our bright, white vapor barrier. The dehumidifier will ensure the basement never gets that clammy feeling ever again.

Our customizable waterproofing solution will keep this basement dry! Now, she can actually use her own basement space for storage or finishing without the stress.

Waterproofing and Humidity Control in Pittsburgh, PA

A couple living in a Pittsburgh, PA home desperately needed our services. The foundation was built in 1929, so it was no surprise when cracks began to develop, allowing water to seep through from the earth. Over time, this water leakage problem developed into a mold and humidity problem in the home as well.

Our Certified Waterproofing and Foundation Repair Specialist, Don Stiffler, visited the home to complete a free, thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the house. Don discussed different options, then explained his proposed custom solution would not only fix the leaky areas, but also prevent the entire basement from future flooding. The couple wished to fix up their basement and protect their stored personal belongings, so they liked our custom-designed solution.

Our crew, led by Foreman Rich Rotolo, arrived at the old Pittsburgh home to make the repairs. The crew installed our Mold-X2 stain remover, WaterGuard below-floor drain, TripleSafe sump pump system, SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier, IceGuard discharge protection, and LawnScape underground discharge outlet. Rich and his crew cleaned the mold stains off the walls, then attached a bright, white wall vapor barrier to stop moisture from coming through the foundation. They installed our drain and sump pump systems with minimal disturbance to the home. The SaniDry Sedona was installed with TripleSafe to eliminate moisture and mold problems, as well as get rid of that damp, clammy feeling in the basement. On the exterior of the home, our IceGuard fitting acts as a form of protection against a clogged discharge line. Most of the time, water will travel through our LawnScape underground discharge extension to daylight at a grated outlet 10 feet away.

All of these products were necessary to keep this basement mold-free and moisture-free for a lifetime!

Waterproofing System with a Battery Back-Up in Pittsburgh, PA

A homeowner in Pittsburgh, PA had been dealing with a basement water problem since she moved in 8 years earlier. She watched as the small problem got bigger and more serious with time. After years of living with a wet, finished basement, she decided it was about time that she fix this problem.

Our Certified Waterproofing Professional, Tom Faessel, inspected the inside and outside of the house. Then, Tom took the homeowner's needs, concerns, and budget into consideration before designing a custom basement solution.

Our crew, led by Foreman Ken Kahlbaugh, installed our complete waterproofing system to ensure this living space stays dry. This includes our WaterGuard below-floor drain, CleanSpace wall vapor barrier, and TripleSafe sump pump system. This TripleSafe system includes a powerful Zoeller pump and 1 UltraSump battery back-up pump.

The battery back-up pump is the smartest addition to any waterproofing project. UltraSump provides extra protection in the event of a power outage or primary pump malfunction.

In just 1 day, we successfully improved the health and appearance of this basement!

Crawl Space Encapsulation in Pittsburgh, PA

A Pittsburgh, PA homeowner was extremely concerned with the large crawl space beneath the first floor of his home. The earth's moisture was entering the crawl space and spreading a musty, moldy smell throughout the house.

Our Certified Waterproofing and Foundation Repair Specialist, Bob Massaro, inspected the home to design the best-fitting solution. Since there was not a major leakage problem, our CleanSpace crawl space vapor barrier was a great proven product to repair the muggy crawl space.

Our crew, led by Foreman Ken Kahlbaugh, installed the durable vapor barrier as well as our CleanSpace drainage matting. The dimpled drainage matting rests on the crawl space floor just below the vapor barrier. Ken has been on the Baker's team since 2010, and recommended this additional product on the job to ensure the homeowner is completely satisfied with his dry, healthy crawl space.

Crawl Space Repair in Pittsburgh, PA

A landlord in Pittsburgh expressed concern for the damages in one of his recently purchased properties. To save his investment, he wanted to repair the damp, nasty crawl space and failing supports.

Our Certified Waterproofing and Foundation Repair Specialist, Doug Ross, inspected the inside and outside of the home to determine the best-fitting solution. After sharing our install process and answering all of the owner's questions, Doug left a copy of the crawl space repair proposal.

Soon thereafter, the owner hired us to fix the damaged crawl space. Our crew, led by Foreman Ken Kahlbaugh, installed our CleanSpace crawl space vapor barrier system. This system, along with our CleanSpace Drainage Matting, SmartSump crawl space drainage system, and LawnScape underground discharge outlet, will keep the earth's moisture out of the home.

Additionally, Ken and his crew installed our SmartJack crawl space stabilizer to repair the sagging crawl space. Our adjustable supplemental support system can often lift failing floor joists or beams, eliminating unwanted gaps and sagging spots in the first floor of the home.

Waterproofing & Wall Stabilization in Pittsburgh, PA

A Pittsburgh, PA basement had flooded due to a water main break. Prior to this incident, the homeowner noticed a few damp spots in the basement. After the area flooded, it was the perfect opportunity to have the basement inspected for water-related issues. When our Service Advisor, Chris Shrontz, inspected the inside and outside of the home, he identified bowing walls in addition to the wet basement.

Our Foreman, Dave Cain, and his crew installed various products for the best-fitted waterproofing and wall stabilization solutions. The bowing walls were permanently stabilized with 11 strategically placed Geo-Lock Channel Anchors. These 7-foot channels extend vertically on the interior foundation walls. They were connected to galvanized earth anchors with steel rods that extend 12 feet away from the home.

Dave and his crew installed 200 feet of our WaterGuard Below-Floor Drain, 2 of our TripleSafe Sump Pump Systems (1 with our Cast-Iron Zoeller 1/3 hp Pump and 1 with our UltraSump Battery Back-up Pump), and our CleanSpace Wall System. The vapor barrier, perimeter drain, and powerful sump pumps make for a solid waterproofing solution. Also, our crew installed 2 IceGuard Anti-Freeze Fittings on each downspout line to protect the home from flooding in the event the lines clog or freeze. All water discharged from the home will run through underground downspout piping, then daylight through a LawnScape Outlet.

Now, the homeowner can have peace of mind with a permanently stabilized and moisture-free home!

CarbonArmor Wall Repair in Pittsburgh, PA

This Pittsburgh home was built back in 1968. The homeowner had been aware of cracking in the foundation walls for nearly 20 years. The reason he finally expressed concern years later was because he had plans to place his house on the market.

Our Service Advisor, Don Stiffler, completed a thorough inspection inside and outside of the house. After assessing the damage and any obstacles, he designed the best solution for the homeowner.

Our Foreman, Dave Cain, and his crew installed 9 of our CarbonArmor straps. CarbonArmor uses fiber-reinforced polymers (FRPs) which are 10-times stronger than steel, yet flexible enough to contour tightly against a basement wall. This high-tech wall reinforcing solution is the best way to keep this home structurally sound and improve overall home value!

WaterGuard & CleanSpace in Pittsburgh, PA

A Pittsburgh homeowner expressed concern for a damp basement. Water damage in the home can lead to humidity, foul odors, and mold growth. He needed a solution that would prevent water from flooding into his basement. This homeowner is a previous customer of ours, so he did not hesitate to call us for our permanent waterproofing solutions.

Our Foreman, Dave Cain, and his crew installed our WaterGuard Below-Floor Drain, CleanSpace Wall System, and TripleSafe Sump Pump System with our UltraSump Battery Back-up System.

WaterGuard is our perimeter drainage system uniquely designed to keep basements dry. Our crew installed the drain above the footer, which helps prevent the system from clogging. Plus, the drain has a wall flange that extends slightly up the wall to catch wall leaks. To prevent humidity and moisture from entering this basement, our crew installed our CleanSpace Wall System. This white, plastic liner acts as a vapor barrier to keep the basement dry and give it a bright, new look. Dave and his crew carefully attached the vapor barrier to the wall with plastic drilled-in fasteners and tucked it behind the wall flange. All water will be directed to our TripleSafe Sump Pump System and discharged out of the basement. Our crew installed our reliable, powerful pumps, which included our UltraSump Battery Back-up Pump.

All of these products were installed to provide this homeowner with a healthy and dry basement!

Wall Repair in Pittsburgh, PA

The customer's daughter and son-in-law recently purchased a house in Pittsburgh, PA. The wall along their basement and garage was slightly bowed. He called us because he wanted straps installed, a simple solution we can provide for the new homeowners.

Our foreman, Mike Pry, and his crewman installed our CarbonArmor Wall Reinforcing System. The 9 CarbonArmor straps that were installed was a perfect, unobtrusive wall stabilizer. Mike and his crewman first cleaned the wall to ensure good adhesion. Each strap was cut to the exact length of the wall, then both the wall and the straps were saturated with high-strength epoxy. After the epoxy was applied and the straps were placed on the wall, a final topcoat of epoxy was applied.

The beauty of our CarbonArmor straps is their unobtrusive nature, meaning the new homeowners could conceal the straps with paint or dry wall. Not only did they stabilize their wall, but they can give it a clean, new look!

Waterproofing System in Pittsburgh, PA

Mr. and Mrs. homeowner had an old and faulty waterproofing system in place that was installed by a different company. They reached out to Baker’s Waterproofing professionals for a complete solution. There was mold in the basement and water was leaking into the basement, even with the existing drainage system in place.

Our production crew installed a sump pump and a complete waterproofing system to fix the homeowner’s wet and moldy basement. The foreman, Nathan Strobel, and his crew removed and replaced the homeowner's failing system with our Waterguard Drainage System. Our unique drainage system was installed to protect the entirety of the basement. Unlike competitors, our WaterGuard systems proven to prevent clogging with its’ strategically placed location, unique shape, and openings. This top-of-the-line draining system also has easy-to-access service ports and the ability to collect water that leaks out of basement walls, as well as ground water from under the floor. The basement’s perimeter was removed and dug out to make a trench for the drainage system to rest. Then, weep holes were drilled into the wall (directly above the trench), which allowed water to easily drain out of the walls and into the new system. In conjunction with this installation, the crew dug a small area in the basement to install the complete TripleSafe Sump Pump System. Once the WaterGuard system was in place, it was connected to the TripleSafe system. Then, gravel was backfilled around the sump pump liner beneath the floor and finished up with an airtight lid (the lid helps to keep odors out). The floor was then restored with concrete, now leaving the homeowners with a clean, dry basement.

Basement Waterproofing in Pittsburgh, PA

The previous homeowner's daughter was preparing to sell her childhood home. In the beginning stages, she discovered issues that would greatly decrease the home’s value. A concrete deck located over the garage was cracking. Those cracks in the porous concrete led water to leak into the garage below. Previously, these cracks were repaired, but water continued to seep through the concrete. The daughter reached out to our company for a permanent solution. Soon thereafter, she was cleaning out the basement and discovered water seepage through some of their walls. They called one of our customer service representatives to schedule an additional appointment to prevent water from coming into the basement.

Their foreman, Michael Pry, and his crew installed one of our waterproofing options, WaterGuard Drainage System. This unique sub-floor drainage system sits on top of the foundation footing, and is proven to prevent clogging. Mike used a jackhammer to remove a small section of the basement’s concrete floor in order to create a drain trench. The crew then installed the 33-foot WaterGuard system along the perimeter, resting in a bed of drainage stone. Basement walls can leak from many points, including wall cracks, joints, and windows. Our unique system is designed with a wall flange, which collects water that may leak off the basement walls, and leads it into the WaterGuard system below. After the crew dug out an area near the right side of the wall, the TripleSafe Sump Pump System was installed. This reliable discharge system will defend the basement against heavy rains and floods. The TripleSafe provides 3 levels of protection, including the cast-iron Zoeller 1/3 horsepower pump, a more powerful Zoeller ½ horsepower pump, and an UltraSump Battery Backup System, which keeps the pumps working in the case of a power outage. The Iceguard Discharge Line was also installed on the outside of the home. It automatically ejects water away from the exterior wall in the rare event that the discharge lines freeze. The IceGuard, an anti-freeze fitting, is designed with holes in it to allow this to happen, and water only escapes if the discharge line would become clogged or frozen.

The crew fixed the leaking concrete deck with our elastomeric coating. The Elastomeric Concrete Coating System creates a waterproof barrier for any rooms below, and protects concrete from the damaging effects of water, deicing salts, chemicals, gasoline, oils, and antifreeze.

Basement Finished Flooring and Wall Paneling Installation

Lousia of Pittsburgh had a basement that she desperately wanted to finish into a game room. However the puddles of water on the floor, and the condensation and mold growth on the foundation walls were preventing this dream from coming true. Baker’s Waterproofing was there for a solution.

Along with our patented waterproofing system, we installed finished floor tiles called ThermalDry. These tiles come in a variety of neutral colors and will completely protect from water as well as insulate the cold concrete floor below in Lousia's basement. Lastly, we installed BrightWall vapor protective white panels along the walls. They not only brighten up this room, but they also protect from further water damage, and prevent future mold growth.

Waterproofing for Finishing a Basement

Sharon of Pittsburgh had a basement with leaking water. When it would rain water would puddle along the floor, and leave an odorous smell even after it was cleaned up.

Baker’s Waterproofing installed a waterproofing system that was specifically designed for finished basements. Our patented WaterGuard sub-floor drain and sump pump called the SuperSump were installed with minimal invasion to the floor. This will allow finished flooring and wall paneling to be applied over the system later on.

Sharon’s basement will now effectively remain dry!

Foundation Settlement in Munhall PA

Homeowners John and Linda of Munhall needed a solution to their sunken foundation.

To restore the foundation 13 of our patented Push Piers were installed. These straight steel piers were attached to the footer of the home by a bracket. The piers were then hydraulically driven into the ground to stronger and more supporting soil. This allowed the weight of the home to transfer on to the piers instead, making the home stabile and secure.

Bowed Wall Restored with Power Braces

Couple Dan and Erin of Whitehall needed a solution to restoring their bowed in basement wall. The issue had only been getting worse over time, and needed a solution quickly.

Service Advisor Justin Lowden gave the free inspection. He determined that anchors were unusable since the exterior sides of wall were not accessible. Instead a low key solution was propsed, using our PowerBrace system. PowerBraces consist of rust-resistant steel I-beams that are easily attached vertical to the wall in areas where it has bowed. Once in place the wall is considered stable and will not move any further. The Power Brace system also comes with a tightening kit that will attempt to straighten the wall over time.

Waterproofing with Downspout Extensions !

Homeowner Joe needed to waterproof his basement/garage area before he could even think about selling his Pleasant Hills home. The front wall was intruding water and mold was even starting to grow in the corner!

Baker’s Waterproofing repaired the leak by installing our WaterGuard patented french drainage system flush with the floor. Our french drain is a result of years of research and design from the largest supplier of basement waterproofing products in the world, and all are backed with a transferable lifetime warranty if you sell your home, just like Joe. Connected to the drain, was a SuperSump pump system with a connected battery backup which allows this system to work even during power shortages.

Additionally Joe wanted to route water out and away from his foundation. Baker’s extended his downspout by installing LawnScape drain piping within the soil of the yard.

Homeowner Joe needed to waterproof his basement/garage area before he could even think about selling his Pleasant Hills home. The front wall was intruding water and mold was even starting to grow in the corner!

Crawl Space and Basement Fixed!

A Penn Hills home had both a basement and crawl space that were experiencing problems. Water was intruding the unfinished basement area, while the crawl space was beginning to smell and had mold growth on the walls. Homeowner Mark called Baker’s for a solution.

In the basement, we proposed our most recommended interior drainage system WaterGuard, with a SuperSump sump pump. We also had the crawl space encapsulated with our patented CleanSpace crawl space liner and had a SaniDry dehumidifying system installed to improve the overall air quality.

All these products create a safe and dry basement and crawl space.

Concrete Leveling in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh native, Brooke was in need of fixing the sidewalk in her back yard. The concrete slabs were greatly uneven and were causing potential trip hazards. Baker’s raised the slabs with our PolyLEVEL concrete leveling product.

So what is PolyLEVEL? PolyLEVEL is a very noninvasive solution to raising concrete. It is made of a high density polyurethane foam that is inserted underneath slabs through small penny sized holes. Upon insertion, the foam expands to raise the slab back to level. PolyLEVEL is 100% waterproof, and comes with a 5 year warranty. You can even drive or walk on the slabs 15 minutes after the installation!
