Common Waterproofing Problems We Can Repair
When you have water in your basement after it rains, then you know how critical the problems can be. Our team of experts is here to help you find the perfect waterproofing plan to ensure your home is protected during the rain.
Basement flooding is caused by failed systems in most cases or severe leaks that have become more rapid in progression. This is common for backed-up floor drains, failed sump pumps, or broken waterproofing systems that were not installed or performing correctly. If these other symptoms are not the case, this can be caused by normal seepage issues that build up water for long periods of time without a place to be drained.
Basement Leaks & Cracks
Cracks are the most common symptoms of wet basements that cause leaks and seepage to 'creep' from different areas. Leaks can range from slow to steady having adverse effects on your concrete, walls, and floors. Over time the amount of water can become more severe creating more problems for your basement- including structural damages.

Unique Foundation & Structural Issues That Need Repair
There is a list of normal problems that affect homeowners in the Latrobe area. If you notice any of these issues, it is very important that you contact an expert to valuate your home. Our team is here to help you repair your home.
Bowed Basement Walls
This is a common problem that is caused from hydrostatic pressure in the soil surrounding your home. Whenever the soil around your home swells up from moisture, it will put a lot of pressure on the walls on the base of your home. It will eventually push them inside, but this foundation problem can be fixed easily. To fix the problem, we can install wall anchors to provide enough lateral pressure to push your wall back to where it needs to be.
Wall & Concrete Cracks
Nobody wants to deal with cracks in the basement, but you have to get them taken care of before they start to let water seep inside. Typically, these openings in the floors and walls are caused from concrete shrinkage, or from hydrostatic pressure being exerted from the soil on your foundation. To fix the problem, we make use of a urethane injection technique that will fill the cracks from the soil to the surface so that they won't ever be able to let water inside.
Our Structural Solutions and Repair Systems
SafeBase™ Wall Anchors
We use wall plates and steel rods that are installed outside and inside of the basement wall to pull the bowed concrete back in place. This is a permanent solution that will withstand any amount of pressure.Learn More
