Common Waterproofing Problems We Can Repair
When you have water in your home after it rains, then you know how serious the problems can be. Our team of experts is here to help you find the correct waterproofing plan to ensure your home is safe during the rain.
Floods in Your Basement
Primarily due to a very serious opening or drainage problem, flooded basements can be a serious hazard. This is common for backed-up floor drains, failed sump pumps, or broken waterproofing systems that were not installed or performing correctly. Other cases may be caused by standard leaks that have built up overtime causing a flood with no where to be drained.
If you have a leaky basement the most common problem comes from cracks or openings throughout the basement causing seepage. 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.

Common Foundation Problems That We Solve
There are a handful of usual problems that affect homeowners in the Pittsburgh area. If you have noticed any of these issues, it is very important that you contact an expert before the problems get worse. Our professionals are here to help you and your family prevent future damage to your home.
Bowed Basement Walls
Often times, leaning basement walls are caused from hydrostatic pressure. Clay-rich soil will absorb a lot of moisture when it rains, and this causes it to expand and put pressure on your basement walls. Eventually, the wall(s) will be pushed into your home. 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
Cracks in your basement are unsightly and can cause a lot of problems. 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 Patented Products and Foundation 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
Liquid Urethane Injection
