A realtor office located in Morgantown West Virginia had a wet, musty and leaking crawl space that needed to be repaired before it could be sold. To ease the concern of the property owner Service Advisor Shawn suggested the installation of a vapor barrier that would encapsulate the space from the dirt floor and porous foundation. The encapsulation system uses CleanSpace liner, which is similar in nature to a pool liner, to provide a safe area to hold storage.
This garage located in Morgantown West Virginia was experiencing water settling in and outside of the structure. To ease the concerns of the homeowner, Baker's suggested the installation of WaterGuard, a trench drain as well as the SuperSump sump pump system. Additionally along the walls, which were clearly chipping due to dampness, white plastic waterproof strips called BrightWall were mechanically fastened to the wall.
This SuperSump pump is a great asset if you have a finished basement, or have the intention of finishing. This sump comes with a solid air-tight lid, allowing carpet or other flooring systems able to be applied over top. The Super has the ability of pumping roughly 2,650 gallons of water per hour out of a basement!

Sandy of Butler, PA was having BOTH foundation and water issues in her home. Her 60 ft. back wall was bowing, and in the left corner of her basement water was starting to leak inside during heavy storms. Yikes! Baker’s came to her home and provided the best solution for her specific problem.
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.
What began with having excessive dampness Scott of Morgantown WV was starting to receive large puddles of water on the floor of his basement which was disturbing his storage area.
After the inspection by Baker's, Scott had a Super Sump sump pump, and 22 ft. of Water Guard drainage system installed. In addition to these products, he also had purchased 3 ft. of Trench drain that was installed where water enters the basement most frequently, and 2 ft, of Clean Space wall liner to seal in water along the back wall.
After the installation of these great patented products, Scott was happy that his storage area was dry and back in action!
Richard of Morgantown had a giant 3346 sq. ft. crawl space that was looking pretty gross to say the least. It was dirty, damp, and now even moldy. Upset, Richard called Baker’s Waterproofing for a way to encapsulate his crawl space.
After the free inspection his service advisor was able to determine the best possible solution to addressing all the issues Richard was having in his crawl space. To encapsulate, 3356 sq. ft. of CleanSpace crawl space liner was applied to the entire area. To address the mold and odor first Mold X Cleaner was sprayed to the affected areas. We also installed 2 SaniDry dehumidifying and air filtration systems. SaniDry dehumidifiers are at their best under the worst basement conditions. All the key components in a SaniDry dehumidifier (coil, fan & condenser) are much larger than the components used in household models. We also installed 3 SmartPumps. SmartPumps are specifically designed to pump water out of crawl spaces, while at the same time, are effective to keeping the liner's air tight seal.
After the installation of these patented products it is easy to see that Richard was very happy that his crawl space was odor free and waterproofed!
The side wall of this Morgantown, WV basement needed to be stabilized. The back wall had cracked in the center and was bowing inwards. Homeowners Todd and Heather called Baker’s for a way to restoring the wall.
In August of 2014 Service Advisor Shawn Evans inspected and proposed our most recommended wall restoration system, Geo Lock wall anchors. These anchors utilize the inerior and exterior sides of the wall. Shawn also had our CleanSpace wall liner applied over top once the anchors were installed. The liner will have the ability to have drywall applied overtop to finish the basement.
After heavy rains, water would seep through the concrete block walls in a Blacksville, WV basement. The homeowners would discover pooling water, which caused more than just headaches. They were concerned for even bigger problems that their wet basement will create. This includes mold, mildew, rot, structural damage, and health problems.
Our Service Advisor, Jesse Pitcock, met with the homeowner and her son and daughter on the day of the appointment. Jesse inspected the house, designed a custom solution, and presented the information through software that incorporates 3D animation, video, and more. When the homeowner and her children hired us, they had all the information necessary to pick the best company for the project.
Our Foreman, Jason Wade, and his crew installed a variety of patented waterproofing products. This includes our BrightWall Paneling, semi-rigid white plastic panels installed on walls. This wall system drains any water leaks down behind it to the perimeter interior drainage system below. In this project, our crew installed our WaterGuard and FlowGuard draining system, which will channel water into our TripleSafe Sump Pump System. The powerful TripleSafe system will discharge water out of the basement and away from the house through buried downspout piping. Water will surface about 15 feet away from the house through our LawnScape Outlet. The lines on the exterior of the home are protected with our IceGuard fitting, which will eject water through slotted openings in the event the pipe lines would clog or freeze.
Rest assured, the Blacksville homeowner and her family can have peace of mind knowing this basement will stay moisture-free!
A homeowner's carpet was soaked through and ruined due to a leaky foundation. The water problem also created concern for mold growth. A son and daughter did not want their mother to continue living in this unhealthy Blacksville, WV home, so they helped schedule her waterproofing project.
We provided our proven waterproofing system to keep the basement dry, restore the health of the home, and put this family's mind at ease.
Our crew installed our unique WaterGuard below-floor drain with FlowGuard, a thin, modified version of WaterGuard. FlowGuard fits on top of a foundation footing when, in this case, a floor slab is too thin to install our standard drain. Water leaking from the wall will be directed behind FlowGuard's wall flange into the WaterGuard drain resting below. Additionally, an inspection port was installed, so our service team could easily access the drainage system in the future.
The WaterGuard drainage system channels all water into our TripleSafe sump pump system. A powerful, reliable sump pump in the system will pump large amounts of water out of the home through our installed discharge line.
A Morgantown, WV homeowner wanted to address the problematic crawl space in his home. He has lived in Morgantown over 17 years, and recently identified that the area needed repairs. He called our office to schedule a free inspection.
Our Certified Waterproofing and Foundation Repair Specialist, Jesse Pitcock, inspected the inside and outside of the house. Jesse identified the problem and used the homeowner's concerns to design a custom crawl space solution. In this job, mold prevention was of utmost priority.
At a later date, our crew, led by Foreman Ken Kahlbaugh, installed our patented, proven products. Ken and his crewman encapsulated the crawl space with our CleanSpace vapor barrier. They installed a crawl space floor drain to protect the crawl space from flooding, in this case, in the event of a plumbing leak.
In the basement, the crew installed our SaniDry Sedona. This dehumidifier drains automatically and has a humidity sensor that monitors the air, so once it's installed, there's nothing else to do. Ken and his crewman tied the Sedona into the existing floor drain.
The homeowner can now enjoy a healthier home!
In 2010, we completed a wall stabilization project for Morgantown, WV homeowners. Our crew installed 10 Geo-Lock wall anchors and Geo-Lock channel anchors to prevent the wall from further inward movement. This project was completed in just 3 days.
Years later, water began seeping through the porous foundation walls. In 2018, our crew, led by Foreman Theron Block,, installed our patented waterproofing products. Our unique WaterGuard below-floor drain and TripleSafe sump pump system is sure to keep water out of this home. This project was completed within 1 day.
Now, the homeowners can rest assured that their basement is fully stabilized and waterproofed!
A horizontal crack developed in a basement wall, and eventually extended to either end of the 63-foot wall. Small horizontal cracking near the middle of the wall is one of the first symptoms of a bowing wall. As extreme pressure from outside soil continued, the wall began to bow up to 2 inches before a homeowner in Morgantown, WV called us to schedule a free in-home inspection.
Our Service Advisor learned that the married couple's main concern was the safety of their home. This serious foundation problem put their quality of life at risk. Luckily, they found a solution that they could trust, our proven Geo-Lock wall anchor system.
This system is their best opportunity to straighten the wall over time, and, most importantly, solve this issue once and for all. Now, their foundation wall is permanently stabilized, giving them the chance to breathe easy in their safe home.
A husband and wife plan to sell their home to two of their good friends. They hoped to make the dirt crawl space a healthier part of the home before selling it to them. That is when they called Baker's Waterproofing to get a free estimate.
Our Certified Waterproofing Specialist, Shawn Jackson, inspected the inside and outside of the house. Shawn specifically designed a crawl space solution that met the basic repair needs at a price that fit within the couple's budget.
At a later date, our Foreman Ken Kahlbaugh and his crew installed our CleanSpace crawl space liner on the walls and dirt floor. Ken and his crew also installed vent covers to seal off freezing cold/humid outside air.
Now, this part of the house is healthier and ready to be sold!
This Blacksville home has a full basement with cinder block walls. Water was seeping in through the walls on all sides and there was a fair amount of water damage.
An existing Baker's customer knew we could repair this new home, so he called to schedule a free inspection. He was only interested in waterproofing two walls in his basement at the time. He also did not want a sump pump, but requested that we tie our WaterGuard drain into his existing basement drain. Our crew installed a customized solution to address the homeowner's needs and preferences. Although, we always recommend installing a sump pump. For that reason, we won't cover clogs or backups in his existing drain since it is not our recommended, proven solution.
Our Foreman and his crew installed 43 feet of our unique below-floor drain at the floor-wall joint in the basement to catch flooding water. The crew tied WaterGuard into the floor drain under the foundation footing. Then, they tied the drain pipe into the existing downspout and led it underground 25 feet to daylight in the lawn.
Water is now directed through the drainage piping and led far away from the home's foundation to help keep this basement dry.
A homeowner in Morgantown has lived in the same residence for 31 years. The crawlspace below his home has always been an issue. But he recently called us to schedule a free inspection, because he wanted to prep the house to potentially sell down the line.
The homeowner specified that he wanted to encapsulate his crawl space.
Upon inspection, we recommended our patented crawl space encapsulation system. The homeowner told us that the first floor of his home gets cold in the winter, so we shared information about our floor insulation, called Terrablock.
On the chosen project date, our crew installed dimpled drainage matting on top of the dirt crawl space floor. Then, we insulated the floor with Terrablock, a 3/4" foam board that helps protect the area. And we encapsulated the floor and walls with our CleanSpace vapor barrier system.
We also used our foam board to seal the crawl space vents. By sealing this previously vented crawlspace, we protected the wood and stored objects in this area from water vapor, humidity, and potential structural damage.
Lastly, we tied our SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier (an automatically draining unit) into the existing drainage pipe per the homeowner's request.
Now, the first floor will be warmer in the winter and the home's crawlspace is up to code!
A couple in Maidsville, WV has been experiencing water in their basement since they bought the house in 1998. They would like to use their basement as dry storage space, so they gave Baker's Waterproofing a call to set up a free inspection.
Chris, our certified basement waterproofing expert came to evaluate the interior and exterior of the foundation. Chris inspected the leaking foundation and recommended a full perimeter waterproofing system for their home.
Our foreman, Scott, and his crew were scheduled to complete the repair work about one month later.
Scott and his crew dug a small perimeter trench around the entire basement foundation. They installed 97 feet of below-floor WaterGuard drain at the foundation footing to collect and channel water towards the TripleSafe sump pump. The crew addressed wall leaks by attaching 97 feet of our vapor barrier.
Scott and his crew replaced the homeowner's existing sump pump that had failed with our patented sump pump. The TripleSafe system collects water and pumps it out of the basement.
The crew also installed a small drainage port for easy access to maintain the waterproofing system.
Now, the couple will be able to use this dry storage space!
In 2013, we provided a free inspection of the bowing foundation walls, but the homeowner did not move forward with the work. He knew there was a bowed wall, but did not seem concerned about the seemingly small water problem.
Over the years, the water problem only got worse. In 2017, they called us again saying water flooded their basement. Our team completed another free inspection and we recommended and installed our proven waterproofing and wall repair systems to fix this Morgantown home for good.
During the appointment, our certified specialist Jesse inspected the area. This home was built in the 1930s and has a thin slab floor. The most water they ever had during rains was about 6 inches in the basement. The crawlspace needed addressed, but Jesse did not believe there was enough consistent room to have work space. Jesse also learned that his wife just gave birth to a newborn baby the previous day!
This young couple agreed on our recommendations, and knew it was time to take care of their home's foundation.
We proposed and installed a below-floor WaterGuard drain with two ports, 3' trench drain, 1 TripleSafe sump pump, washable CleanSpace vapor barrier, 3 Geo-Lock wall anchors, and a curtain drain in the yard.
Upon our crew's arrival, our foreman Ken recognized that he could squeeze into the very small crawlspace and address the problem. The homeowner agreed on the additional project. Our crew was still able to complete this project within one week!
Now, this Morgantown home is a healthier and more pleasant space for their new family.
--We recently completed a service visit in 2019 to ensure the system is working properly and to maintain it over time.
We're glad this home has been successfully protected against structural issues and flooding water!
This Wana, WV homeowner was getting over an inch of water coming through her walls and into her basement when it rained. After 3 years of vacuuming out the water after every storm, she decided to seek a more permanent solution for the problem.
At the time of the appointment, our service advisor Jesse Pitcock was able to see first-hand what this homeowner was experiencing. It started to rain. And as soon as it began, it was seeping through her walls and onto the basement floor. Jesse assessed the situation and designed a partial perimeter basement system.
The homeowner was thrilled to finally stop worrying about the water, and wanted her project completed as soon as possible.
Our crew installed over 30 feet of the WaterGuard drainage system tied to a TripleSafe sump pump. Our CleanSpace wall vapor barrier was installed to guide the leaks coming in the walls directly to the pump and out of the home. And to stop that moisture and humidity from entering the home!
This homeowner can now use her basement as a storage space knowing it will stay dry all the time!
