Wheeling, WV homeowners were experiencing significant bowing to the side of their house. After assessment, it was determined that since this was an extreme case of bowing escavation and the installation of our patented Geo-Lock Channels Anchors would be needed to stabilize and to straighten the wall.

Block foundations are like sponges to extracting moisture from the surrounding earth. Much like this Wheeling, WV basement, water was causing harm to the walls. To fight this issue, we applied a thick durable white liner called CleanSpace. CleanSpace is made with a 7 layer material and a special additive called UltraFresh that prevents mold growth. Water is blocked from entering the basement, and instead the liner is designed to push water down into the installed WaterGuard drain. This makes CleanSpace a great component to this installed waterproofing system.

In Wheeling, WV we installed a waterproofing system that prevented water intrusion from the outside and condensation forming on the block foundation walls. This included installing WaterGuard perimeter drain within the concrete floor, a SuperSump sump pump containing a battery operated backup system to ensure the sump would work even during power outages, and a vapor barrier liner called CleanSpace that protects from wall leakage and overall dampness. All of these products will keep this basement dry!

Job Stories From Wheeling, WV
Commercial Foundation Settlement Repair in Wheeling, West Virginia

A general contractor from Wheeling, West Virginia noticed the block addition of a commercial building was starting to separate at the corner.

The exterior wall settled about 3" and displayed stair-step cracking around the door.

Our certified basement waterproofing and foundation repair expert, Justin Lowden, inspected the inside and outside of the building. Justin worked with the general contractor to custom-build the best solution for this foundation settlement problem.

In two days, we installed 7 Push Piers around the addition to stabilize the back of the building and permanently stop it from sinking.

Crawl Space Stabilization in Wheeling, WV

The wooden floor beams in a crawl space began to sag, weakening the structure of the foundation. Once the floor began to give, the problem would have continued to get worse over time. For this reason, the homeowner called our team to repair their crawl space.

Our crew, led by Foreman Ken Kahlbaugh, installed our SmartJack supplemental support system. Our system permanently lifts and stabilizes the existing beams and floor joists. A solid base of engineered fill addresses the problem of weak foundation soil by transferring the weight of the home to competent strata. Steel columns were then secured to the beams in the crawl space. Heavy-duty, threaded rods allow for adjustment and a custom fit for each SmartJack System installed.

Crawl Space Encapsulated

The property owner of a Wheeling WV rental house wanted to provide a safer living enviroment for his residents. His unprotected crawl space was an open area for disurbances such as water, mold, rodents, critters, and even cold air to come and seep up into the house.

Service Advisor Justin Lowden traveled to the home and conducted the free estimate. He determined that to encapsulate and protect this crawl space he had our patented CleanSpace 20 ml thick liner applied to the 505 sq. ft. area. After CleanSpace was applied his house was safer and now usuable to hold storage.

Water Intrusion and Bowing in Wheeling, WV

Homeowner Caroline of wonderful Wheeling, WV had begun to notice excessive dampness in the front corner of her finished basement. On top of that a portion of her front wall was also starting to bow up to 1” in the worst place. To say the least Caroline was not happy and decided to call Baker’s Waterproofing to have her basement examined.

Service Advisor Chris Shrontz came to Caroline’s home and was able to determine the best solution for repairing the basement. He proposed that in order to repair the wall, 4 Channel wall anchors would be installed where the front wall was bowing. This technique will stabilize and with time potentially straighten the wall back to its original position.

To take care of the water moisture that was damaging Caroline’s finished basement Chris had 30 ft. of WaterGuard drain piping installed along the side and front wall where water was entering, along with a SuperSump sump pump at the lowest level of the foundation.

As additional features Caroline also purchased 30 ft. of LawnScape downspout extensions that will direct water away from the foundation, and 80 sq. ft. of ThermalDry. ThermalDry is a tile lock flooring system that creates a moisture and thermal barrier that will keep your basement dry and at least 10 degrees warmer than a concrete basement.   

After the installation Caroline was happy that her finished basement was stablized and now free from water damages.

Bowing Wall Stabilized

With a bowed wall of 5”, Sam of Wheeling, WV called Baker’s Waterproofing and Foundation Repair for a free estimate on how to safely repair his foundation.

Service Advisor Tom Faeseel came to his home and determined the best solution for his particular case. Since the bowing was so severe and since Mike wanted the wall immediately straightened and stabilized, excavation was done first to have full access to the bowng wall. It was then determined that 5 Geo-Lock wall anchors and 2 Channel Anchors would be needed. Both anchoring systems utitlze the exterior and interior sides of the wall, the Channel anchors are specifically designed to be placed where the bow is the worst.

They were installed by having steel 16"x16" steel earth plates inserted underground. Then on the inside tiny holes were drilled having galvanized steel rods driven through connected to the earth plates outside. The Geo-Lock and Channel wall plates were then attached to the wall.

After examining these photos, it is easy to see that Baker's was able to successfully straighten and to stabilize Sam’s home.

Vicinity of Chapline St in Wheeling
I have a 8ft area on left side of house that has been falling in over period of time. I also have area in front of house due to the heavy rains we had and the people that had the house way before us, had the draining from the roof going into the ground below. This has caused the ground to give way and the foundation to have a crack in it. I am no contractor and don't know that much about these things; the best thing is for you to look. Getting estimates in writing. Thank you
