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. The design of the Trench Drain allows for water to drain into the grate, flow into the patented Water Guard, and is then pumped out of the home.
After the installation of all of these products, the homeowners were very satisfied that their foundation was repaired and their basment was properly waterproofed!

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.

Service Advisor Tom Faessel proposed a great solution to waterproofing this small, but needed storage area. Along the wall he had 28 ft. of WaterGuard French drain piping installed flush with the ground floor. Water will be blocked from entering into the space, and will be directed to the sump pump. Tom had a sump pump system called the SuperSump installed at the lowest level of the foundation to allow the easy passage of water from the drain. Water is then taken outside for dispersion.
Donna now has a dry basement that she can rely on.
Rick of Washington, PA was starting to see cracks forming on the exterior wall of his house. Knowing that this can cause major structural problems, Rick called Baker’s for a free estimate.
Baker’s identified that the wall was bowing and repaired it by installing 9 Channel wall anchors. Channel anchors are specifically designed to handle very extreme cases of bowing.

Since the garage did not have access to the outside yard, we could not use anchors. Not to fear we were able to install 6 of our patented Carbon Armor straps instead. These low profile carbon straps are 10x stronger than steel and are specifically designed for basement walls. The carbon fiber technology is the same technology used by the US Department of Defense, Army Corp of Engineers and aerospace engineers to reinforce skyscrapers, bomb shelters and bridges around the world.

He designed a solution by having a french drain called WaterGuard installed against the basement’s foundation, flush with the floor. A sump pump that was connected to the drain was also installed in the lowest level of the foundation.
Since water was damaging the paneled walls, the paneling was removed to apply ThermalDry wall liner to insulate the wall from the outside and to block water leakage through the foundation. This silver poly sheet material is a great asset if you want to finish your basement since drywall can be applied over top later on.
Time was running out for Clyde and Trudi of Burgettstown, PA. For the past 10 years they have been dealing with some serious foundation problems. After noticing crack formations on their walls, they had seen that the front wall of their home was bowing inwards 2” in the worst area.

He proposed the installation of 13 of our patented Geo Lock Wall Anchors. This is our most recommended way to permanently stabilizing bowing walls. The anchors also give the ability of potentially straightening the wall over time with use of the given tightening kit.
The installation of the anchors only lasted 1 day and Clyde and Trudi were happy to have their home safely stabile once again.
Brian of McDonald PA really wanted to finish his basement but was unable to for the longest time due to the puddles of water entering his basement and damaging his carpeting.
After contacting Baker’s for a free estimate, Service Advisor Tom Faessel traveled to Brian’s home. He proposed the installation of an interior drainage system Water Guard around the entire perimeter of the basement along the wall, a Super Sump sump pump, and 60 ft. of Lawn Scape downspout extensions which directed water away from the home.
As an additional product Brian had a trench grated drain installed along the basement door entrance. Also since Tom knew that Brian greatly wanted to finish his basement he had Clean Space wall liner applied to the basement walls to act as a vapor barrier, and to reduce humidity levels in his basement. Drywall can later be applied over top.
These great patented products all work together to create the waterproofing solution that Brian needed. He is now finally able to finish basement!
As you can see from this photo, Charles of Mc Donald, PA really needed a solution to restoring the sinking slab in his driveway. After seeing advertisements on our newest and innovative product, PolyLEVEL he called Baker’s for a solution to leveling these sunken slabs.
In August of 2015 Service Advisor Krys Webster traveled to Charlie’s home to give the free estimate on the driveway. While there he was able to give the estimate for the PolyLEVEL product right there on the spot while also answering any questions that Charlies had.
He also explained that PolyLEVEL is a polyurethane foam material that is pumped underneath your slab through a very small 5/8” hole. Once underneath it will react and expand, raising your slab back to its proper position. The poly foam is 100% waterproof, and comes with a 5 year warranty. Another great benefit to PolyLEVEL is that you can drive on the slabs 15 minutes after installed.
John of Charleroi, PA needed to repair his concrete slab driveway. Many of the slabs had sunk causing potential trip hazards. After seeing advertisements on our newest concrete leveling product, PolyLEVEL John called Baker’s for a free estimate.
PolyLEVEL consists of a lightweight polyurethane foam that is pumped underneath indicated slabs by a pump connected to our PolyLEVEL truck through small penny sized holes. The foam reacts and expands, raising the slabs back to level. This innovative product is a result of years of research and development. The poly foam is 100% waterproof, comes with a 5 year warranty, and is even able to be driven on 15 minutes after installation.

Service Advisor Bradley Feld inspected the front porch and 2 uneven sidewalk slabs. He determined that in order to raise the slabs back to level a total of 35 lbs. would be needed.
After years of research from our Foundation Supportworks supplier, PolyLEVEL is a new innovative way to lifting sinking concrete slabs. Poly is a lightweight polyurethane foam that is pumped underneath your needed slab through small penny sized holes. The foam expands under the slab, giving it the lift that it needs. The foam is eco-friendly, 100% waterproof, and can even be installed in as little as 15 minutes depending on the size of the job.
The front porch of this Canonsburg home needed to be raised 1”. The step had sunk causing potential trip hazards to any guests coming to visit the home. We raised the slab with PolyLEVEL concrete leveling foam.
PolyLEVEL is a lightweight polyurethane foam that is inserted underneath slabs through small penny sized holes. This noninvasive solution is significantly less expensive than completely replacing concrete and is less messy than the technique of mud jacking, which can easily wash away. The foam is 100% waterproof and comes with a 5 year warranty.
The back patio, sidewalk, and inside garage of this Indiana PA home needed to be repaired. In certain areas the concrete slabs had sunk. After seeing advertisements of our newest and innovative concrete leveling product, PolyLEVEL homeowner Mary Lou called Baker’s.
Service Advisor Tom Eckerlsey conducted the free estimate to the indicated areas. In order to restore the slabs he had 105 lbs. of PolyLEVEL foam installed. Foreman Rick Schwartz inserted the polyurethane foam by drilling penny sized holes into the slabs for the foam to be pumped underneath. The foam expanded and was able to restore the slabs back to their original position. The area was then properly cleaned and the holes were patched with cement.
We love Poly! The expanding polymer foam is 100% waterpoof, comes with a 5 year warranty, and can even be driven on 15 minutes after properly installed.

Diann of Venetia had water intruding into her basement along the front wall where the floor and wall meet. The water flow was so substantial that it was starting to damage the flooring. Diann called Baker’s for a solution to repair this wet mess.
Service Advisor and now Production Manager Donald Stiffler conducted the free estimate of the wet basement. He proposed the installation of an interior drainage system called WaterGuard along the front wall with a connected sump pump system. Unlike other French drains which are installed under the footer in an area prone to clogging, WaterGuard is installed on top of the footer in a dug trench along the foundation. As an additional product BrightWall white panels were mechanically fastened to the wall to act as against barrier against water and even mold growth.
Baker’s provided a waterproofing solution that protected the inside as well as the outside of this Washington PA property. The basement had water coming through the front wall of the foundation, and from the ceiling above from the concrete porch.

A home in Charleroi PA need to fix their settling foundation. As you can see a portion of the home was separating and sinking away from the rest of the foundation. This problem could only get worse with time if left untreated.
Our team at Baker’s used 4 of our patented PushPiers to stabilize and to lift the home back to its original position. They consist of steel long piers that are attached to your home’s footer and hydraulically driven into deep supporting soil. This will prevent further sinking of the home. Afterwards the area was backfilled with soil and the home was good as new!
A Lawrence PA homeowner had a foundation water leak along the front and rear walls of his basement, especially in front of his basement door. This needed to be cleaned up for good, so he decided to call the experts at Baker’s.

A sump pump was connected to the drain and installed in the front corner, next to the door entrance, to move water out to a downspout line. Lastly since water was substantially coming up underneath the door we put a special grated drain called TrenchDrain to handle the heavy seepage more efficiently.
All of these products will work together to keep this basement dry!
Anne of Lawrence PA had a 1 ½ inch bow along her 30 ft. foundation wall that needed to be addressed to prevent the wall from becoming worse. If left untreated serious structural damage to her home could occur and the wall could collapse altogether.

Joseph of Scenery Hill, didn’t just need any company, he needed one that he could trust to fix his wet basement problem! After seeing online the various awards and recognitions we have won, he decided to give Baker’s a call for a free estimate.
Baker’s fixed the leaking foundation along the rear wall by installing our patented WaterGuard draining system. What is nice about WaterGuard is that it is an internal drain that is installed with little invasion to the floor. WaterGuard rests on top of the footer instead of undeath in the “mud zone”, preventing a clogged system. Along with the drain we installed the TripleSafe sump system to pump water to the outside. The TripeSafe unlike most sumps, is made of cast-iron instead of plastic, which prevents the sump from overheating when running for extends amount of time.
Both products come with a Lifetime Transferable Warranty, and will keep this Scenery Hill basement dry for years to come!
In McMurray homeowners Mary and Bryan had a crawl space with excessive moisture and even the presence of mold. After researching many companies online, they decided to give Baker’s a call for a free estimate.

This project lasted 2 days, and Alec was happy to have a safe and secure foundation once again!
Homeowner Diana of Hickory PA had vertical cracking along the rear corner wall of her garage. She had an inspection from another contractor to see if there was any structural damage to her home. She decided to give Baker’s a call as well after being referred to our company by a previous customer.
Baker’s assessed the area and determined that the house was settling 1 1/3 inches. If gone unrepaired the house would continue to move, causing other potential problems in the home like sticking doors and windows, and interior cracks in drywall. To fix this issue we installed 3 PushPiers along 10 ft. of the foundation. PushPiers are installed by attaching brackets to the footer of your home and hydraulically driving galvanized steel piers into the soil below.
The installation created instant stabilization to the foundation and we were able to achieve lift, restoring the foundation to how it was originally. Another day, another foundation fixed by Baker’s!
Homeowners in Washington, PA were experiencing water leakage in their basement. Every rain brought puddles of water into their laundry room area. The homeowners needed to address their wet basement to prevent further damage and mold growth. This was the perfect opportunity to provide our proven solutions in our local community.
Our Foreman, Tom Hannah, and his crew installed our top-of-the-line waterproofing systems. Our WaterGuard perimeter drain would not fit on top of the footing (the normal placement) because the floor slab was too thin. For this reason, our crew installed our thin, modified FlowGuard drain to rest in front of the footing, with WaterGuard installed below it. These systems were placed in a small dug out trench along the perimeter of the laundry area. The drains were connected to our TripleSafe sump pump system. Three powerful and reliable pumps, including our UltraSump battery backup pump, discharge large amounts of water through the downspout lines. Water will filter out through our grated LawnScape outlet 20 feet away from the foundation. Tom and his crew also installed our CleanSpace wall system in the affected area. This durable, waterproof liner will direct leaks into the drain below and keep moisture and humidity out of the basement. Our combination of permanent waterproofing solutions will keep this basement dry, guaranteed!
A Washington, PA homeowner discovered water seeping through his finished basement walls. He no longer wanted to deal with a damp basement, so he called us to set up a free estimate. On the day of the appointment, our Service Advisor, Chris Shrontz, inspected the inside and outside of the home, recommended our proven waterproofing solutions, answered all of the homeowner's questions, and printed out a proposal that same day. Soon enough, the customer signed with us to complete this waterproofing project in his basement.
Our Foreman, Mike Pry, and his crew installed our unique below-floor drain, sump pump system, wall vapor barrier, and downspout extension. Our WaterGuard Below-Floor Drain is designed to catch wall leaks and direct all water into our TripleSafe Sump Pump System. TripleSafe is our powerful and reliable system that will pump water out of this basement to keep it dry all the time. Our crew extended 20 feet of downspout piping from the sump pump discharge line out to our LawnScape Outlet in the yard. Water will surface far away from the foundation, so the homeowner will not have to worry about it re-entering the home.
Mike and his crew also installed our BrightWall Paneling System that covers 27 feet of the basement at a height of 8 feet. This durable wall system is 100% waterproof and directs any water seepage into our drainage system (WaterGuard). BrightWall definitely transformed this basement into a bright, beautiful space!
Homeowners living in Eighty Four, PA found a small amount of water in their basement. They wanted to address this issue with our proven waterproofing solution. Our Service Advisor, Chris Shrontz, bid a variety of our waterproofing products after completing an inspection on the inside and outside of the home.
While on the job, our Foreman, Jon Mitchell, added one of our wall repair products to the project. Jon and his crew installed our CleanSpace, WaterGuard Drain, Trench Drain, TripleSafe Sump Pump, IceGuard, and LawnScape. Also, the crew installed CarbonArmor to repair the foundation walls.
Our CleanSpace Wall System was attached to the walls to prevent moisture from entering the basement. The production crew installed 36 feet of our WaterGuard Below-Floor Drain on top of the foundation footing. Our grated Trench Drain was installed around the oil tanks in the basement. All water travels through our drainage system into our reliable TripleSafe Sump Pump System. Powerful Zoeller pumps (including our UltraSump Battery Back-Up Pump) discharge water away from the home. To keep water from flooding back into the basement, our crew ran 25 feet of downspout piping underground. The piping directs water far away from the foundation to reach the surface through our grated LawnScape Outlet in the yard. Our sloped IceGuard anti-freeze fitting is a sure way to prevent water from flooding back into the foundation in the event of frozen or clogged pipes.
Also, our CarbonArmor Wall Reinforcing System was added to this project to permanently stabilize the walls. The combination of high-strength epoxy resin and carbon fiber strap material is guaranteed to prevent the wall from cracking or bowing any further.
Washington, PA homeowners had plans to sell their home, but first, they wanted to find a permanent solution for their unstable, bowing foundation wall. Years ago, they spoke with a specialist in our appointment center about their concern for a large horizontal crack along the wall. (Due to financial restrictions, we performed work in this home a few years earlier as well.)
Our installers finished this ongoing project to permanently stabilize the foundation wall. Our PowerBrace Wall Repair System uses strong steel I-beams to keep the wall from moving inwards any further. In general, we recommend our PowerBrace System when it is not possible to access the earth outside of the foundation. Our Foreman, Jason Wade, and his crew installed the beams on the wall by bolting each one to the floor joist near the top of the wall and to the floor with brackets. This system has a unique approach to stabilizing and straightening bowed and buckled foundation walls over time. Now, the homeowners have peace of mind that they will be able to sell their structurally sound home!
A wet basement and nasty, damp crawl space can cause more than just a headache. Serious problems could arise such as mold, mildew, rot, structural damage, and a variety of health problems. A homeowner in Muse, PA reached out to us to address his foundation's water leakage problem. He plans to sell his childhood home, so it was important that he invested in a permanent and reliable solution.
In the crawl space, our crew installed our SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier as well as our CleanSpace Vapor Barrier with drainage matting to help keep moisture out. All leaks will be directed into our SmartSump Premier Pump System.
In the basement, our crew installed 2 of our TripleSafe Sump Pump Systems. All water in the basement will channel through our FlowGuard Thin-Floor Drain and buried WaterGuard Below-Floor Drain. These drains work together to catch wall leaks and direct all water into the sump pump.
On the outside of the foundation, our crew installed 5 IceGuard Discharge Line Protection fittings (1 on each discharge line). In the event the lines would freeze or clog, water will exit through IceGuard's slotted openings, providing the home with extra protection against water seepage. Water will travel through underground downspout extensions, then daylight through our LawnScape Outlets.
Now, the homeowner does not have to deal with the headaches of an unhealthy living space, and can rest assured his home will sell!
A Washington, PA homeowner discovered water and structural problems in her basement. The customer's main concern was for potential health problems caused by mold, mildew and low air quality filtering throughout the home. Our Service Advisor, Jesse Pitcock, investigated all of the symptoms as well as the homeowner's concerns to successfully develop an effective and customized solution.
Our Foreman, Ken Kahlbaugh, and his crew installed various products in the home. The support beams and floor joists in the basement are now permanently stabilized thanks to our SmartJack System. The CleanSpace Wall System, our patented vapor barrier, was attached to the walls. With its mold-resistant additive UltraFresh, CleanSpace will never support mildew or mold growth on its surface. Ken and his crew also installed our CleanSpace Draining Matting, which is placed directly on the dirt floor to help properly direct all water towards the sump pump system. Our WaterGuard Below-Floor Drain with our modified FlowGuard Thin-Floor Drain and TripleSafe Sump Pump System were installed in conjunction with the CleanSpace systems. These products work together to drain all water into the sump pump system, and our LawnScape Outlet helps keep the water away by daylighting it far from the foundation. In the event the underground pipes would clog or freeze, our IceGuard Discharge Line Protection will act as a new exit strategy for all water that is being pumped out of the home.
A homeowner in Washington, PA plans to move out of her house. However, a house with unstable foundation walls and a wet basement would be difficult to sell. For this reason, the homeowner worked with a realtor to find the best solution.
Our Service Advisor, Chris Shrontz, investigated the problem, explained the proposed solution, and printed out the contract for the homeowner and realtor to review. After giving it some thought, they hired us to complete the job.
Our Foreman, Dave Cain, and his crew installed our wall anchor system. Our Geo-Lock Wall Anchor System immediately and permanently stabilized the foundation walls. How does it work? Our anchors extend out from the interior walls to stable soil far away from the home, therefore bracing the foundation.
Dave and his crew installed our drainage system, sump pump system, waterproof wall system, discharge line protection system, and downspout extension. Our waterproofing system will keep water out of the basement and away from the home. Our unique WaterGuard Below-Floor Drain with FlowGuard Thin-Floor Drain and BrightWall Paneling System direct all leaks into our TripleSafe Sump Pump System. All water will be discharged far away from the home, even if the discharge lines freeze in the winter. Our anti-clogging and anti-freeze fitting, IceGuard Discharge Line Protection, helps to ensure the home stays dry at all times. Normally, water will pass right by this fitting through downspout extensions and daylight through our LawnScape Outlet.
Our proven wall repair and waterproofing solution will make it easier to sell this house at market value!
A homeowner in Washington, PA had been dealing with the stress of a damp basement for nearly 2 years.

On the installation date, our Foreman, Ken Kahlbaugh, and his crew installed our WaterGuard Below-Floor Drain and TripleSafe Sump Pump System. Our interior perimeter drainage system was installed just below the floor slab along 54 feet of the leaky basement walls. Our crew dug a small perimeter trench to place our unique drain and fill with drainage stone. Ken and his crew dug a small sump pit to place our durable sump pump liner and install 1 powerful Zoeller pump. TripleSafe also includes a stand to prevent the pump from clogging, an airtight sump lid, and a WaterWatch alarm system to sound an alert to prevent flooding in the event of a sump pump malfunction.
Our patented waterproofing system provides this homeowner with peace of mind that his basement will stay dry. Now, when it comes time to sell, he can rest assured that the basement is protected with our transferable lifetime warranty!
A Strabane, PA homeowner needed to complete a few home improvement projects before selling. We were there to help alleviate the stress of this process by completing a crucial project: basement waterproofing.
After completing a thorough inspection, our Service Adviser, Justin Lowden, recommended our energy-efficient dehumidifier, sump pump system, interior perimeter drain, and basement wall vapor barrier to keep this basement dry.
The installation of a dehumidifier in the basement will help give dry, healthy air and greater comfort to the family that moves into this home. Our WaterGuard drain, TripleSafe sump pump system, and CleanSpace liner will keep water out of the basement. The interior perimeter drain includes 1 service port, so our Service Technicians can annually maintain the system to prevent clogs.
The current homeowner has one less project to worry about, and, rest assured, the house's value has significantly increased with our proven waterproofing solution!
Homeowners in Bulger, PA recently dealt with the most water they've ever had in their basement. They are preparing to sell the house, so they wanted to make the repairs right away.
Shawn Evans, one of our Certified Waterproofing Professionals and Foundation Repair Specialists, inspected the inside and outside of the house. Shawn designed a custom waterproofing solution that addressed the homeowners' needs and concerns. He gave the homeowners a detailed proposal and left it up to them to schedule the project.
Ken Kahlbaugh, our top performing Foreman, and his crewman installed our unique interior drainage system and sump pump system in the basement. The crew installed our WaterGuard below-floor drain and a thin, modified version of this drain, called FlowGuard, along nearly half of the perimeter. Ken and his crew tied the below-floor drainage system into our durable and reliable TripleSafe sump pump system.
During the next heavy rain, any water that tries to enter through the foundation will be directed through our drainage system, into our sump pump system, and will be discharged out of the basement and daylight at the end of the existing downspout.
Our transferrable warranty is ideal for buyers, plus, the sump pump system includes our UltraSump battery back-up pump. This means that when the new owners can't get home or go on vacation, they don't have to worry about a heavy rain or power outage leaving them with a wet basement--this area will stay dry!
A rental property owner in Washington, PA is preparing to sell. However, one area in the basement had a lot of unwanted moisture. Buyers would take one look and walk away if there was not a waterproofing solution they could count on to keep the area dry.
Our Certified Waterproofing and Foundation Repair Specialist, Paul Zamareski, thoroughly inspected the property. Paul designed a partial perimeter waterproofing system to fix the problem.
The installation project included our WaterGuard below-floor drain and TripleSafe sump pump system. Because the owner did not have large amounts of water flooding into the basement, our crew installed 1 of 3 sump pumps in the air-tight sump pump system.
If the problem becomes worse over time, the new owner will have the opportunity to add our second, more powerful pump and/or our UltraSump battery back-up pump for extra protection.
An Eighty Four, PA home was experiencing a wet basement. The homeowner had been dealing with the problem for years. Finally, she decided it was time to make the repairs, so she could have a dry, usable basement.
Our Certified Waterproofing and Foundation Repair Specialist inspected the inside and outside of the house, inquired about the homeowner's main concerns, and answered all of her questions. Then, he designed a custom waterproofing solution to meet her needs and wants. She took some time to think it over, then hired us for the job.
The crew arrived and got right to work. They installed our WaterGuard below-floor drain, TripleSafe sump pump system, and LawnScape underground discharge extension. Now, the homeowner has a dry basement, because these products work together to collect groundwater that seeps through the foundation. Then, it is pumped out of the basement and daylights far away from the home at the end of the discharge line. At the end of the line is our grated LawnScape outlet that blends nicely with the lawn.
A homeowner in Monongahela had a bowing foundation that needed to be repaired.
Baker’s Waterproofing repaired the failing 30 ft. block foundation wall by installing 6 vertical CarbonArmor straps. CarbonArmor is a long-lasting solution to cracking, bowing walls. The carbon-fiber straps are applied to the wall with epoxy resin, so they will not peel off. They hold the wall in place and prevent further movement. The foundation was fully stabilized after the installation of CarbonArmor.
There were evident water problems, but the homeowner chose not to fix it for another 2 years. Unfortunately, the problem continued to get worse with time. We took another look at the foundation before drafting an additional estimate.
We successfully installed our complete waterproofing system that prevents water from entering the basement. Now, the foundation is fully stabilized and waterproofed!
In 2008, our team repaired the bowing, leaning walls at this property. Ten years later, new homeowners moved in and soon thereafter discovered that a water problem had surfaced. The basement had been damp for a couple years, but larger amounts of moisture had finally begun seeping into the basement to where it finally needed to be addressed.
The homeowners main concerns were that this issue would turn into a more serious issue in the future. They didn’t want the water issue to cause structural problems or damage a finished basement. By addressing the water, they, in turn, prevent these concerning problems from occurring.
The homeowner trusted the quality of our past work, our unique, patented drain, and presentation of our solution, so they hired us for their project. On the day of, Rich and his crew arrived to install our below-floor WaterGuard drain (no clogging potential), TripleSafe sump pump system, and LawnScape underground discharge extension.
Any water that tries to enter the basement will be caught and channeled through our system, and taken far away from the home through 18 feet of underground piping.
A homeowner had only lived in a Washington home for 7 months, but was already dealing with recurring basement water problems. The homeowner grew tired of cleaning up puddles of water in the basement.
Our Certified Waterproofing Specialist, Chris Shrontz, was scheduled to inspect the inside and outside of the home. Chris identified moisture problems in the basement and dirt crawl space. He recommended our solutions, and we were hired for the project.
Our Foreman, Ken Kahlbaugh, and his crew completed the installation of our waterproofing system. In the crawl space, Ken and his crew installed our CleanSpace drainage matting, moisture barrier, and drainage piping. In the basement, we connected the crawl space system to the basement waterproofing system. The crew installed our unique WaterGuard below-floor drain, CleanSpace moisture barrier, and TripleSafe sump pump. The drainage system directs moisture into the sump pump, so the system can pump water out of the home. On the home's exterior, Ken and his crew installed our IceGuard fitting on the discharge line to protect against basement flooding. The crew directed the discharge line underground about 13 feet away from the home to daylight at our LawnScape outlet out in the yard.
Now, any moisture in the crawl space and basement will be controlled and ejected far away from the home.
A husband and wife had been dealing with basement water problems for about 4 months. Then, a recent rainstorm left their basement in terrible condition, which was the worst it had been since they moved in. This is what led them to call Baker's Waterproofing to find out why it's happening and how to fix it.
Our Certified Waterproofing Specialist, Doug Ross, inspected the inside and outside of the home, discussed possible concerns, and designed a custom solution. Doug demonstrated the problem at hand, then provided options on all that they could include in their waterproofing system. The husband and wife decided on our unique WaterGuard drainage system, TripleSafe sump pump system, and CleanSpace vapor barrier to fix their basement water problem. These systems work together to direct leaks into our system and pump it far away from the home through a new downspout extension.
They are now fully aware of why the problem was occurring, and can happily say that their waterproofing system is keeping their basement dry.
A homeowner in Houston, PA recently began to see water problems developing in his basement. After heavy rains hit Houston, he had to deal with a completely soaked and ruined carpet. He looked for a waterproofing contractor that he could trust to do the right thing at the right price.
Our Certified Waterproofing Specialist, Jesse Pitcock, completed a thorough inspection of the property. The homeowner explained to Jesse that he was only concerned about one leaking wall, so, as per his request, Jesse designed a solution that fit his specific needs. The homeowner chose Baker's Waterproofing, then scheduled an installation date.
Our crew, led by Foreman Rich Rotolo, arrived at the house to install our proven waterproofing system. This system included our WaterGuard below-floor drain, TripleSafe sump pump system, and IceGuard fitting. WaterGuard is our patented below-floor drain that rests in a bed of drainage stone on top of the foundation footing. It is installed at this location to prevent mud from clogging the drainage system.
Now, after heavy rains, any groundwater that enters through the foundation will be controlled in our system and pumped far away from the home. If the discharge pipe on the home's exterior clogs or freezes in the future, our IceGuard fitting has slotted openings that will allow water to escape from the pipe, instead of flooding back into the basement.
A homeowner wanted to finally fix the basement water problem in her Washington home. The walls and floor in her unfinished basement were extremely damp. She heard about Baker's Waterproofing from a magazine and decided it was time to have an expert take a look at the problem.
Our Certified Waterproofing Specialist, Mark McCullough, inspected the inside and outside of the house. During the inspection he took pictures of the basement and identified challenging obstacles our crew would encounter on the job. Then, Mark sat down with the homeowner to learn about her concerns before designing a system specifically for this basement. That same day, she hired us for the job.
Our crew, led by Foreman Theron Block, arrived at the home to install her custom waterproofing solution. Theron and his crew installed our WaterGuard below-floor drain, TripleSafe sump pump system, IceGuard discharge fitting, and LawnScape outlet. The WaterGuard drain includes 1 easy-access service port. The TripleSafe includes 3 pumps (one is the UltraSump battery backup pump) and WaterWatch alarm system. In only 2 days, the crew installed these patented products with minimal disturbance to the house. Now, this basement is completely dry!
A Washington, PA homeowner was dealing with a leaky basement for the last 10 years that he's been living there. During heavy rains, water built up on the floor--specifically in one small room. The homeowner is good friends with our most tenured Service Advisor, Chris Shrontz, so he called Baker's Waterproofing to find a permanent fix.
A homeowner from Cecil used Baker's Waterproofing for a project in the past. That's how he knew to call our team when another waterproofing company's system had failed to keep his basement dry.
Our crew replaced the existing, old sump pumps with two of our proven sump pump systems. The homeowner's new sump pumps include a premium plastic sump liner with perforations to capture groundwater, floor drain for any unforeseen plumbing leaks, WaterWatch alarm in the event of an emergency, top-quality Zoeller pump to discharge up to 2,280 gallons per hour, pump stand, and check valve.
A general contractor called Baker's Waterproofing for a concrete repair solution. A Washington townhouse driveway had slabs that cracked in the center and sank at least 4 inches. The contractor wanted to repair the slabs rather than pouring new concrete.
Chris, one of our Service Advisors, met with the contractor that is working with the new homeowner. The contractor is doing a total refurbish of the townhouse and the homeowner had not moved in yet. Chris designed a solution to lift the slabs and seal the cracks. He put the contract in the new homeowner's name, so they could own the warranty.
Baker's Waterproofing sent Scott's crew to install PolyLevel to lift the 5 concrete slabs four inches and another crew to seal the two 19-foot cracks with NexusPro. Now, the townhouse driveway is level, stable, and protected against moisture and further damage at the newly sealed joints.
A buyer in Canonsburg knew one of our Certified Waterproofing and Foundation Repair Specialists. So when she identified a water issue at her property, she called us first. The buyer wanted to address only the small eight-foot perimeter of the basement that leaked.
Our crew installed 8 feet of our unique WaterGuard below-floor drain and TripleSafe sump pump system (includes 1 Zoeller pump and other features). They carefully removed and replaced the laundry tub to properly install this basement waterproofing system.
Water that leaked through this area will now be directed into our drain (located between the footing and floor), channeled towards the sump pump, and led out of the basement.
The buyer will receive a lifetime warranty for this system. And she can add onto the system if and when the water issue extends to other areas in the basement.
A family recently moved into a new home in Canonsburg, PA. Shortly after the move, they started experiencing basement flooding.
Some of the leaks entered the home through minor cracks in one wall and left the entire concrete floor covered in water. Our certified expert inspected this home and designed a long-term basement waterproofing solution that addressed the initial water problem with our TripleSafe sump pump and below-floor WaterGuard drain AND improved the look and feel of the basement with our CleanSpace vapor barrier.
At a later date, our crew successfully fixed the basement flooding issue in only one day.
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!
