Basement Waterproofing in Pittsburgh, PA

Basements are versatile areas that can be used for everything from laundry and storage to additional bedrooms and entertainment spaces. You shouldn’t have to worry about any belongings suffering from water damage, which is why it is important to properly waterproof your Pittsburgh home’s basement. Leaking walls and mold growth, however, are common in these below-grade areas because of Pittsburgh’s frequent rain and array of unstable soil.

Basement Problem Signs in Pittsburgh

The most apparent indications that something is wrong with the basement of your Pittsburgh home are standing, seeping, or flooding water. However, there are many other problem signs you might notice in your basement. Efflorescence, mold, condensation, excessive humidity, musty or unpleasant odors, wet walls and floors, plumbing floods, and flooding stairs are some of the typical basement damage symptoms. Some problems might be difficult to spot, so if you are unsure about their appearance or the potential severity of the situation, we suggest having a thorough inspection performed by one of our qualified experts. 

Causes of Basement Damage in Pittsburgh

Basement problems arise due to a variety of causes. Internal leaks from plumbing pipes or a faulty sump pump are a couple of sources, but the clay bowl effect and hydrostatic pressure are the most common causes of basement damage like leaks. The latter two factors are related to how your home was built and how Pittsburgh’s damp climate and challenging soils affect it. Your basement walls are more likely to experience issues from hydrostatic pressure if the soil surrounding them is loose, which produces an artificial water table. This is typical for homes because of Pittsburgh’s average annual rainfall of 38 inches and 28 inches of snow, as well as the varied silt loam, silty clay loam, and clay soils.
