A 100-year-old home in McClellandtown, PA had a leaky basement for over 2 years. They were interested in downsizing, so they wanted to get the house fixed up to sell. The homeowner and her family wanted a fair and honest company to complete the repair, so they called Baker's Waterproofing for an inspection.

This 100-year-old home in Meadowlands, PA had been experiencing leakage problems for at least 25 years. The problem was getting increasingly worse with more water coming inside each time it rained. The homeowner wanted to keep the whole basement dry all of the time, so they called the experts for a free estimate.
Our Service Advisor Tom performed an inspection of the property and designed a waterproofing solution to fit this home's issue.
Our crew, led by foreman Mike, installed CleanSpace wall vapor barrier and spray foam insulation on all four walls. The CleanSpace liner will lead any moisture coming through the walls into the WaterGuard drainage system that is installed around the basement perimeter.
A grated trench drain was installed at the outdoor entryway to collect any water that might flood down the stairs and through the basement door. A TripleSafe sump pump was installed to take water out of the home. And Mold X-2 was sprayed in the basement to prevent any future mold growth.
On the exterior, an IceGuard fitting was installed on the discharge line to help protect against basement flooding in the event that the pipe extension freezes or clogs.
This homeowner now has peace of mind that her basement will no longer flood!
To avoid further movement, the homeowner needed to address the integrity of the soil. Our certified expert explained this to the homeowner during the free concrete inspection.
The homeowner was concerned about this major trip hazard in front of his home and about water pooling near his foundation. We recommended that he restore his entire sidewalk to bring all slabs back to their original position. However, we designed a custom proposal to address only the two sinking slabs directly in front of his porch.
The homeowner was interested in getting an estimate from another contractor, but chose our team to complete the work.
At a later date, our crew accurately lifted, leveled, and stabilized the concrete slabs. We injected our PolyLevel foam beneath the concrete to improve the soil and lift the slab. We made small holes in the concrete to place injection ports and install PolyLevel below. Once the slabs were completely level, our crew sealed the holes with fresh concrete.
The homeowner watched most of the installation process and was happy with the result of a level sidewalk in little to no time!

IceGuard was an added feature for this sump pump system. Our IceGuard anti-freeze fitting was installed to discharge water away from the home only in the event the downspout pipe clogs or freezes. The sump pump system connected to 30 feet of our 4-inch downspout extension. Water will travel through this underground pipe and surface at our LawnScape Outlet installed at the front of the home. LawnScape is our grated outlet that rests flush with the lawn. This is a great product to keep water far away from the home, with no added concern for a tripping hazard.
The homeowners now have peace of mind with a bright, clean, and dry basement! That means it's finally time to get started on their new dry storage area!
The cracked wall of Jay’s basement was preventing him from closing the deal on selling his New Castle, PA home. The wall was not just cracking it was bowing and needed to stabilized. After attempting to fix the problem himself with no resolution he called Baker’s.
We stabilized the wall with our low-key CarbonArmor straps. The straps were applied to the wall with epoxy resin to hold it in place. CarbonArmor is 10x stronger than steel, so it is s a very reliable solution to repairing bowing, bucking, and tipping basement walls.
The 35 ft. front wall which consisted of both the basement and garage had inward movement or bowing of 1”. The significant bowing was causing concern for the structural safety for this Mount Lebanon home.

No worries! The great thing about Baker’s Waterproofing is that we have multiple solutions to fix problems. Instead Tom placed 10 evenly spaced CarbonArmor straps to the back wall using epoxy resin. The straps are 10x stronger than steel and are the same technology used by the Army of Defense to fix bridges, bomb shelters, and skyscrapers.
Once in place the CarbonArmor straps gave the wall the stabilization it needed.

Charles of Beaver Falls was buying a house with a multitude of problems. In particular, the 39 ft. front wall had severe bowing with the wall facing 2” inwards.
Service Advisor Nick Freda conducted the free estimate of the bowing wall. He determined that in order to stabilize the wall 8 evenly spaced Channel anchors would need to be installed. The anchoring installation process begins on the outside by inserting 16x16 steel earth plates into the ground approx. 12 ft. away from the home. Then on the inside 1” holes were drilled into the wall for our galvanized steel rods to be pushed out to the earth plates. When the Channel wall plates were attached to the steel rods in the basement the wall was anchored to more the load bearing soil outside, providing the needed stabilization. A tightening kit was also given to Charles which he will use to attempt to straighten the wall over time.

To address the bowing wall, 9 Carbon Armor reinforcement straps were installed. These straps are strong! Carbon Armor is a fiber-reinforced polymer that is 10 times stronger than steel and is specifically designed for basement walls. Once installed the wall is stabilized and will not move any further.
A waterproofing solution, which consisted of WaterGuard sub-floor drainage and a SuperSump sump pump, was installed as a way to collect and reroute water outside of the basement. Additionally since the walls were porous CleanSpace vapor barrier system was hung to protect the area from wall leakage and condensation from seeping onto the floor.
Kennedy Township homeowner, Florence had a bowed wall and water leaking into her basement. Unhappy, she called Baker’s Waterproofing to set up a free estimate to have her wall and basement fixed.
After receiving her free inspection and bid on the spot, she had the failing wall restored using GeoLock wall anchors. The waterproofing system she had installed included: a sub-floor drain called WaterGuard, a sump system called The Super, and downspout extentions to keep water flow away from the home.
Together these patented products from Baker’s will keep this basement dry, and foundation stabile.
Denise of New Castle, PA had water coming into her basement from all possible areas.
Service Advisor Chris Shrontz came to the home and assessed pricing and products that would be needed to fix her specific problem. He determined that our patented TripleSafe sump pump, and 128 ft. of WaterGuard sub-floor drainage system would be used. As additional products 12 ft. of LawnScape downspout extensions, and IceGuard downspout freeze protector were also installed.
Water Guard is our sub-floor drainage system and a key component to our waterproofing system; it is installed along the footer of your home against the wall by creating a trench. Since water was entering from all areas, WaterGuard was installed around the entire perimeter of the basement (128 ft.), and was connected to the TripleSafe.
The TripleSafe sump pump is a great choice for basements that leak heavy amounts of water. This sump contains 3 pumps in one and even includes 1 pump that will work even if there is a power failure. After these products were installed cocnrete was applied over the drain and around the TripleSafe to restore the floor.
From the TripleSafe, water will be pumped out to our LawnScape downspout extensions and will flow 12 ft. away from the home. We also installed IceGuard which acts as a way to allow water to flow even in extreme cold temperatures when there is a chance that water will freeze over.
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.
After noticing a bow of 1” along the side wall of his home, Patrick of Gibsonia called Baker’s Waterproofing to set up a free estimate to assess and to fix the wall. Baker’s assessed the situation and proposed the installation of 4 Geo-Lock wall anchors to stabilize the failing wall.
This is by far our most recommended way to giving stability to basement walls that are bowing, tilting, bulging or shifting in any way. They also give the chance of straightening the wall back its original position over time. Our anchoring system comes with 25 year Manufactures Warranty.
Patrick was so happy with his results that he later purchased our CleanSpace wall liner and ThermalDry floor tiles 3 years later.
Dave of Waynesburg, PA had 1” of bowing to his 2 story home since he purchased the home 8 years ago. He had contacted other companies to receive estimates, but they were recommending to completely rebuild the wall, which is expensive and not the best solution to resolve the problem.
After the estimate from Baker’s, Justin Lowden our Sales Manager said the foundation could be repaired by using 6 of our patented Geo-Lock wall anchors. These anchors would provide proper stabilization of the wall, and with the tightening kit, the wall will be able to slowly straighten over time.
The installation only lasted 1 day and Dave was happy to see that his foundation was now stabilized and that he did not have to completely rebuild his foundation after all.
After seeing wall cracks on exterior bricks and having a bowed wall of ¼’ John and Kimberly of Kittanning, PA decided to contact Baker’s Waterproofing to repair their bowing wall.
After setting up their free estimate, Service Advisor Tom Eckersley came to their home and explained the various ways to stabilize their foundation from our wide portfolio of patented products. To stabilize the foundation 7 Geo-Lock wall anchors were decided to be used.
These anchors are installed by inserting 16"x16" earth plates into the ground approx 12 ft. away from the foundation. In the basement tiny holes are drilled through the basement wall and steel rods are driven through and connected to earth plates outside. The wall plates are then attached to the wall. The homeowners were also given the corresponding tightening kit that helps to slowly straighten the wall back to normal over time.
Steve P of Bentleyville, PA already had an existing waterproofing system in place from another company. Years later he was still receiving water puddles of water. Wanting to get this fixed one last and final time, Steve called Baker’s Waterproofing to book a free estimate on replacing his already existing sump pump.
Service Advisor Tom Faessel recommended replacing the the existing pump with our patented TripleSafe sump pump system. As an additional product Tom had 15 ft. of downspout extensions added to direct water away from the home.
The TripleSafe is top of the line in sump pump systems! The TripleSafe contains 3 systems in one, if your 1st pump fails to operate or cannot handle the amount of water coming in the 2nd pump will begin running. The 3rd pump is battery operated and kicks in when the previous pumps do not work due to a shortage of power.
Since Steve already had a sub-drainage system installed we simply used his and added 13 ft. of downspout extensions going out to the backyard to direct the water away from the home.
The project only lasted 1 day and Steve was happy to know that his basement was finally properly waterproofed.
Leo of Monroeville, PA wanted to have the sidewalk in his backyard repaired. After hearing about our newest and innovative concrete leveling product PolyLEVEL, Leo called Baker's for a way into leveling his sinking concrete slab.
He booked his free estimate. Tom Eckersley, one of our handy dandy Service Advisors, came to his home and informed him on PolyLEVEL. He explained that it is a high density urethane polymer foam that is inserted underneath through penny sized holes. The foam expands, raising the slab back to level. POLYLEVEL is 100% waterproof and will last 80 years!
After PolyLEVEL was inserted Leo was very happy to see that his sunken concrete slab was properly leveled and was now free from any trip hazards!

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.

After learning about our wide variety of products Herbert went with our SuperSump sump pump system, and our WaterGuard sub-draining system to waterproof his home. The SuperSump is very efficient; it is quiet and can pump roughly 2,650 gallons of water per hour. WaterGuard is specially designed piping that is installed within the floor against the foundation.

George of Coraopolis was seeing significant cracking along his foundation, a key sign of settlement or sinking. Fearing for the safety of his home he called Baker’s to look into repairing his foundation.
We repaired the foundation by installing 5 Push Piers. The PushPier system is able to permanently stabilize your foundation, and allows the best opportunity of lifting the foundation back to its original level. To install these piers your footing is first exposed and a bracket is secured to the footing. Next, steel tubes (piers) are hydraulically driven through the bracket to competent soils or bedrock. The weight of the home is then transferred through the piers to load bearing strata. The home is then lifted back to level (if it is possible).
After the installation there is no doubt that George was glad that his foundation was now safely secured.
Bill of Wexford noticed that one of his basement walls was beginning to bowing or push inwardly. This was definitely a concern since he was looking to sell his home in the near future.
A free estimate repair by Baker’s Waterproofing was able to determine that 10 GeoLock wall anchors would need to be installed to stabilize the failing wall.
Geo-Lock anchors are a great choice to repair bowing, tipping, or buckling walls. Each individual anchor is installed by having a 16"x16" earth plate inserted in undisturbed soil approximately 12 ft. away from the wall. Along the interior basement wall, a 1” hole is drilled to push a galvanized steel rod out to the earth plate outside. Lastly the wall plate, which is visible in this photo, is attached. The connection is tightened which gives the foundation stability.
Bentleyville residents were having a wide variety of issues in their home. Firstly, they were experiencing water in their basement and bowing to the side wall. This was definitely a concern since the homeowners were planning on refinishing their basement in the near future.
Service Advisor, David informed and recommended a complete portfolio of products to the residents. To address the bowing wall, they used our patented Geo-Lock wall anchors. These wall anchors are designed to give support to the foundation of the home and to slowly straighten the wall over time to its orginal state. They also have minimal disturbance to lawn & landscaping, and come with a 25 year manufacturing warranty.
The water issues were resolved from using our patented Super and Ultra sump pump system and interior driainage system Water Guard. This Super Sump pump can pump 2,650 gallons of water per hour and has a mechanical float switch, while the Ultra is battery operated and is used when the there is a shortage of power to the Super.
As an additional product they also went with our TrenchDrain system. This method of draining prevents water from seeping through doorways, garage doors, and in front of staircases.

After the installation of all of these products, the homeowners were very satisfied that their foundation was repaired and their basment was properly waterproofed!
