Murrysville Sump Pump Solutions

Murrysville homeowners were experiencing a variety of issues in their home. They were concerned about the water that was entering their basement every time it rained, the poor air quality, and the mold that was starting to form on the walls.

Baker’s installed a french drain, a sump pump systen, and SaniDry dehumidifying system to repair this space. This basement waterproofing system will keep this area dry!

Bowed Wall Repair in Jeannette, PA

Chuck of Jeannette, PA was worried after noticing that his rear foundation wall was bowing about 3”.

He decided to call Baker’s Waterproofing to get a free estimate on how to repair the failing foundation. Justin Lowden gave the inspection of the wall and recommended that 8 Geo-Lock wall anchors be installed.

Geo-Lock wall anchors are a great way to stabilize the foundation and are designed to provide the ability of straightening the wall back to its' original state. Additionally since the basement was finished, Chuck purchased neutral wall covers that go over the anchors.

The project only lasted 2 days and Chuck was happy to know that his home was stabilized!

A New Kensington, PA Waterproofed Basement

Beth of New Kensington PA was experiencing large amounts of water entering the corners and window wells of her basment. She was also having dampness located on the walls. Clearly things were not looking good! Knowing about our great reputation, Beth called Baker’s to set up her free estimate.

Service Advisor Tom Eckersley gave the full inspection of the basement, and determined that Beth’s personalized waterproofing solution included installing 2 Super Sump sump pumps at the lowest levels of the basement, and 130 ft. of WaterGuard sub-floor drainage around the entire perimeter of the basement.

In addition to, Beth purchased 130 ft. of CleanSpace crawl space liner which was attached to the wall. The liner creates a barrier for water moisture. Beth decided to also purchase 2 IceGuard ports. The IceGuard system allows water to escape from the sump pump discharge line even if the pipe freezes over or becomes blocked for any reason.  

The installation of these great patented products only lasted 3 days and Beth was happy to have her dry storage space back in action!

Irwin, PA Concrete Slab Waterproofing Seal

Residents Albert and Dorothy of Irwin, PA were very satisfied with the waterproofing system that Baker’s personally installed in 2010. The system was working very well. However, they noticed that water was now beginning to leak from the ceiling that sits below their concrete slab porch. Because of this, they called Baker’s for a way to fixing this issue.

More than happy to return to the couple’s home, their Service Advisor recommended that an ElastoMeric coating be applied to the concrete slab porch. The coating applied consists of a basecoat and topcoat all of which create a strong preventative barrier for water. The coating comes in 2 specific applications; it can be used for vehicular and pedestrian traffic.

The ElastoMeric coating was a success and Albert and Dorothy were happy that Baker’s once again was able to give them a dry basement!

A Latrobe Basement Waterproofing System

Residents Michael & Mary Ann of Latrobe, PA were experiencing water seeping into their much needed finished basement. Fed up, they finally decided to call the experts at Baker’s Waterproofing.

Chris Shrontz was the service advisor on the case. He was able to diagnose the best solution for the couple. He had our most recommended interior drainage system, WaterGuard installed. The WaterGuard drain is installed along the wall of your basement on top of the footer. WaterGuard creates an ideal barrier against water entering your basement! From this drain water will instead be diverted to the sump pump.

Chris had a Super Sump sump pump installed. The sump pump has the ability of pumping 2,650 gallons of water per hour out of your home. It also comes with a WaterWatch Alarm system which will alert you if water rises over a certain level. The pump takes water to the already existing downpouts.

As an additional feature the couple purchased an IceGuard port. This port will prevent water from freezing over during those cold nasty winters. They also had his already existing downspout extended 40 ft. out to the street with LawnScape.

An Extreme Bowing Repair

By far homeowner Don of Greensburg’s bowed wall was one of the most extreme cases we had ever seen. In the worst area, the bow was measured to be facing inwards 5-7”. Don called Baker’s to provide a wall restoration system that could not only permanently stabilize the wall, but could also instantly straighten the wall back to its original position.

Up to the challenge Service Advisor Tom Eckersley conducted the estimate and designed the best solution that met Don's goals. He determined that first excavation would be needed to give access to the wall. This would allow for the wall to be straightened immediately. To stabilize, he had our patented GeoLock Channel anchors installed. Channel anchors utilize the inside and outside of the wall and are specifically designed to handle extreme cases of bowing, much like this particular case.

Water Damaging Carpeted Basement

David and Cathy of Greensburg, PA needed a solution to repair their leaky basement. During times of heavy rains they would see water coming through the wall, and leaving puddles of water on their carpeted floor.

Service Advisor Chris Shrontz proposed a specifically designed waterproofing system for finished basements that will be installed within the concrete floor. We placed our french drainage system called WaterGuard along the basement’s perimeter with a sump pump system called the SuperSump, containing an air tight lid. The air tight lid will prevent water from seeping out onto the carpet when it is running.

These two products provide David and Cathy with a dry finished basement.

Sinking Slab Repair in Richmond OH

Lois of Richmond OH needed to fix his trip hazardous concrete slab that was surrounding his much beloved pool area. After seeing advisements on our newest product, PolyLEVEL he called Baker’s for a free estimate.

In July of 2015 Service Advisor Krys Webster came to the home and conducted the free estimate of the pool area. After the inspection he was able to diagnose how to properly restore the slabs right there on the spot with the PolyLEVEL foam.

PolyLEVEL is polyurethane foam that is inserted underneath your slab through a 5/8" hole. The foam expands and then raises the slab. This quick installing and noninvasive solution is 100% waterproof and will last roughly 80 years.

Driveway Slabs Leveled in North Huntington, PA

Bill of North Huntington had attempted twice and failed to leveling his driveway’s sinking slabs with the messy technique of mud jacking. After seeing our newest and innovative product, PolyLEVEL Bill called Baker’s to see if this could finally be the proper solution.

Service Advisor Kyle Horne conducted the free estimate of the driveway. He was able to explain the differences between the other techniques. Unlike mud jacking which is made of a messy cement base that easily can be washed away, PolyLEVEL is made of a lightweight and waterproof polyurethane foam that is inserted underneath slabs through small 5/8” holes. The foam expands upon insertion, raising the slab. Poly will last roughly 80 years, and is even able to be driven on 15 minutes after the foam is inserted.

Waterproofing with Downspout Extensions !

Ken of Monessen, PA, really wanted to sell his home but first had to fix the constant water intrusion that was leaving large puddles along his carpeted basement floor.

After a free inspection we determined the best solution for Ken’s specific needs. We installed our WaterGuard interior drainage system to the front corner wall, where water was entering. Unlike other French drains that are installed under the footer of the home in an area prone to clogging, our patented WaterGuard system easily rests on top of the footer along the wall in a dug out trench. This placement is nonivasive and is designed to keep the drain clean.

Connected to the drain was the SuperSump sump pump. The Super can move 2500 gallons of water per hour out of a basement. As an additional product, Ken purchased 20 ft. of our LawnScape downspout extensions to divert water further away from the foundation by placing the drain in a trench under the ground.

Both products come with a Lifetime Transferable Warranty.

Bowing Wall Repair

Church Basement Waterproofing

A board member at The United Methodist Church in Glassport PA called Baker’s to look at the church’s musty smelling and wet basement.

We inspected the multi-room area and proposed an internal basement waterproofing system that would eliminate any puddling water along the floor. This consisted of installing WaterGuard sub-floor drainage along the rear and right block foundation walls where the leak was occurring. WaterGuard is easily rested on the footer and is designed to collect running water along the foundation and water by the floor seem. In companion to the french drain we installed a SuperSump sump pump. The Super will move water outside of the basement at a rate of 2,500 gallons water per hour.

No matter how large or small these patented and warranted products by Baker’s will keep this church dry for years to come!

Wall Repair in New Kensington, PA

This New Kensington homeowner has lived here for over 30 years and plans to live out the rest of her life in this home. All 4 basement walls had already began to bow when she purchased the house, but it has continued to get worse over the years. The homeowner's goal is to stabilize the wall to increase overall home value, so her children could eventually sell the house. She also needed to address her leaking basement walls, because an old system from one of our competitors was no longer functioning.

Our foreman, Tom Hannah, and his crew addressed both the bowed basement walls and water leakage problem. To properly stabilize, and potentially straighten, all 4 basement walls, our service advisor proposed that our production crew install 26 Geo-Lock Wall Anchors. Our crew carefully dug holes in strategically mapped out locations about 12 feet away from the foundation walls. They drove our galvanized steel rods through the wall to these locations. The rods were connected to our heavy-duty 16'' by 16'' galvanized earth anchors embedded in the soil. The earth anchors were then connected to our 12'' by 28'' wall plates in the basement interior. The system was in place and tightened for complete stabilization.

Our crew also installed 126 feet of our CleanSpace Wall System all around the 8-foot wall. Tom and his crew tucked the wall system behind the homeowner's existing paneling. Our CleanSpace vapor barrier will keep the entirety of this basement moisture free. It has a 25 year warranty for wear and tear, so neither the homeowner nor her children will have to worry about its durability. Our team definitely improved the home value with our permanent stabilization and waterproofing solutions.

Concrete Leveling in Murrysville, PA

The stoop at a Murrysville, PA home developed significant voids underneath. The homeowners have been living here for the past 16 years, and have no intention of moving elsewhere. The homeowners' goal was to fill in the voids below the concrete slab as to stop rodents from digging even larger holes. The couple needed a solution that would both fill in the voids and raise their sunken stoop. They called into our Appointment Center, and one of our Customer Service Representatives set them up with a free estimate.

Our Service Advisor, Nick Freda, completed a thorough inspection at the home. On the day of the appointment, Nick bid our PolyLevel slab solution and printed out the proposal for the homeowners.

Our Foreman, Scott Clark, and his crew installed our state-of-the-art slab solution. Our crew dug small, penny-sized holes in strategically-located areas, then installed injection ports. Next, they injected our PolyLevel foam into the voids below the concrete stoop. To finish this quick-and-easy installation, Scott sealed the holes, leaving minimal disruption to the existing concrete. Our crew permanently lifted and stabilized the couple's sunken concrete slab thanks to our high-density polyurethane formula.

Our production crew installed 44 feet of our DryTrak Baseboard Drain. Unlike our drains installed below the floor, DryTrak is permanently epoxied above the floor. This is the ideal solution for monolithic floors that would be extremely difficult to dig through. This above-floor drain will help direct water to the homeowner's existing sump pump system.

The crew addressed the damp floor with our ThermalDry Elite Plank Flooring. The homeowner chose a beautiful dark walnut finish for her new waterproof flooring. ThermalDry Flooring is great if you want the warm look of wood, but not the worry of water damage.

Basement Waterproofing in Beallsville, OH

Water had been seeping through all 4 foundation walls in an old farmhouse in Beallsville, OH. The homeowner was concerned with these serious water issues. He plans to make this a rental property, so he added a waterproofing project to his list of home repairs.

Our Certified Waterproofing Professional, Mike Felt, completed an inspection of the farmhouse. He designed a custom solution to effectively repair the wet basement.

Our Foreman, Ken Kahlbaugh, and his crew installed our TripleSafe sump pump system, WaterGuard below-floor drain, TrenchDrain grated drainage pipe, CleanSpace wall vapor barrier, IceGuard discharge line protection, and LawnScape underground discharge outlet. The CleanSpace vapor barrier will prevent moisture and humidity from entering the basement and will direct all leaks into the drainage system below. All water that tries to enter the basement will be channeled from TrenchDrain and WaterGuard into our sump pump. TripleSafe contains a powerful Zoeller pump on a stand, lid and liner, and WaterWatch alarm. The discharge line runs through the foundation wall and extends underground far away from the foundation. On the home's exterior, IceGuard, an anti-freeze and anti-clog fitting, was installed on the discharge line. The discharge line extends underground and allows water to daylight through LawnScape's lawn-colored, grated outlet.

With a dry basement, the homeowner can rest assured that his soon-to-be rental property now has much greater market value!

Bowed Wall Repair & Waterproofing in Greensburg, PA

A contractor worked with our team and the property owner to schedule a waterproofing and wall repair project for a house in Greensburg, PA. The owner plans to place the house on the market, but first had to fix the wet, moldy basement and bowing garage and basement walls.

Our crew, led by Foreman David Cain, successfully completed these major home improvement projects. David and his crew fixed the bowing walls with our Geo-Lock wall anchor system. The job required 15 anchors to permanently stabilize the walls, prevent further inward movement, and potentially return the wall back to its original position. Next, our crew cleaned mold off the walls (about 167 feet) with our Mold-X2 stain remover. Once the mold was taken care of, they installed our unique WaterGuard below-floor drain, vapor barrier directly above the drain, TripleSafe sump pump system, and LawnScape underground discharge extension.

The crew installed our wall and waterproofing systems in less than 1 week.

Properly Sealed & Insulated Crawl Space in Latrobe, PA

A dirt crawl space in Latrobe, PA was causing serious problems in the rest of the house. Outside air would leak into the basement and filter throughout the home. In the winter months, freezing cold air seeped through any openings and cracks in the foundation. In the summer months, hot and humid air filtered would do the same, creating a hospitable environment for mold. The homeowner also wanted to prevent the earth's moisture from sitting in the dirt crawl space.

Our professionally trained Service Advisor, Bob Massaro, inspected the inside and outside of the home. Bob designed a custom crawl space solution that would provide a dry, healthy, and structurally sound home. He took the homeowner's concerns into consideration before finalizing the proposal. The homeowner was confident in our honest work, so we scheduled the project.

Our crew, led by Ken Kahlbaugh, installed a variety of patented crawl space products. This included our CleanSpace liner and drainage matting, TerraBlock floor insulation, and SilverGlo wall insulation. We also sealed off any cracks and holes with spray foam to prevent outside air from leaking into the home. This crawl space has been turned into a healthy part of the home now that we have controlled the moisture, sealed off the walls, and encapsulated the walls and floors.

Underground Downspout Extensions in Industry, PA

A homeowner identified a water problem near the exterior of the home. Two faulty downspout extensions leaked water near the foundation walls. If left alone, this could have led to serious water problems on the inside of the home, but luckily there is a simple, cost-effective fix!

Our Certified Waterproofing Specialist, Tom Faessel, inspected the home and proposed our LawnScape underground downspout extension be installed for a permanent solution. After the homeowner hired Baker's Waterproofing for the project, our crew arrived with the necessary products and tools. First, Rich Rotolo and his crewman removed the old extensions and removed the sod. Then, they connected PVC pipe to each existing downspout and ran the piping underground, away from the foundation. Next, the crew connected the pipes, then tied it into our LawnScape well. The only visible part is the green LawnScape outlet that rests flush with the lawn. For the last step, Rich and his crew replaced the dirt and sod in the yard.

Now, water drainage from the roof is directed far away from the home and onto the surface through the LawnScape underground downspout extension.

 

A 100-year-old Fieldstone Foundation Transforms into a Livable Home

After 22 years of living in an Apollo home and several years of basement issues, it was time to make a healthy change for this 100-year-old house. The uneven fieldstone foundation allowed water and mud to enter the home and ruin the walls and floor during every rain. When a heavy rainstorm passed through, the homeowner would find inches of water in his basement!

Now, he doesn't have to deal with these headaches. The homeowner called our team for a free on-site visit to identify the problem and design a long-term waterproofing solution. On another day, our crew arrived at the house to install the proposed waterproofing system.

Covering up these unsightly walls and installing a waterproofing membrane was a must. Our CleanSpace wall system is a 100% waterproof barrier that easily installs on uneven foundation walls. One feature of our vapor barrier is that it will never support mildew or mold growth on its surface.

We installed our drainage system to catch and control all of the water leaks. The WaterGuard drainage system rests just below the basement's floor slab to catch groundwater that enters at the foundation wall-floor joint. The CleanSpace wall system is tucked behind WaterGuard's wall flange, so our waterproofing system will successfully catch all moisture that enters through the walls.

The drainage system will direct all water into our top-of-the-line TripleSafe sump pump system. Once water enters our airtight sump pump, it is discharged to the outside of the home. We added an extension to the discharge lines, called LawnScape. In this case, LawnScape includes 15 feet of underground piping that channels water from the sump pump system out to the yard. Now, groundwater that tries to enter the basement will daylight through our barely noticeable LawnScape outlet.

Our crew successfully dried up the basement in just 3 days.

Bowing Wall Repair in Murrysville, PA

A homeowner is selling her home after she'd been living there for years. As she prepared her home for the market, she noticed cracks along her foundation wall. She was unsure if she wanted to fix it or negotiate with the buyer, but she scheduled a free inspection with Baker’s Waterproofing.

Our Certified Foundation Repair Specialist inspected the home and designed a custom solution. Two cracks ran horizontally along the concrete block wall with a bow at 1 inch. This foundation issue greatly decreases the value of the home and, over time, it will only get worse. The homeowner decided to schedule the work before listing the house on the market.

Our crew installed 5 Geo-Lock wall anchors to permanently stabilize the home’s foundation. The system works by placing heavy-duty earth anchors far away from the foundation and connecting interior anchors with long, galvanized rods. Now, the home's foundation is structurally sound and ready to be listed!

Concrete Driveway Lifting and Leveling in Apollo, PA

A homeowner noticed that his driveway slabs have been slowly sinking, getting worse over the years (photo below). Eventually, he grew worried that it was now a tripping hazard around his home. He wants to reverse this safety issue with a solution he can trust to level his driveway.

Tom provided a free inspection and estimate for these sinking concrete slabs. He designed a custom proposal that addressed the homeowner's and his wife's concerns. They plan to stay at their home for many more years, so they chose our permanent PolyLevel solution to lift and stabilize their driveway once and for all.

Scott and his crew injected our PolyLevel formula into the gaps beneath the sunken slabs. This stabilized the settled soils and expanded in the empty voids to lift and permanently stabilize the concrete. These driveway slabs were lifted about 3 inches nearly back to level. No more tripping hazards!
