Common Waterproofing Problems That We Fix
If you have water in your home during rainy weather, then you know how critical the problems can be. Our professionals are here to help you find the perfect waterproofing system to ensure your home is protected 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.
Cracks are the most common symptoms of wet basements that cause leaks and seepage to 'creep' from different areas. This is a dangerous issue for your home as leaks persist and continue to flow. Once your basement begins to leak, the opening can wear down over time becoming larger and letting more water inside. This can eventually turn into a structural problem if it hasn't already.

Common Foundation Problems We Repair
There is a list of normal problems that affect homeowners in the Pittsburgh area. If you notice 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.
Buckling Foundation 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.
Foundation & Wall 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. Most often, this problem is caused from concrete shrinkage in the foundation or from a rising and falling water table outside your home. When it comes to repairing this issue, we can make use of a urethane injection technique that will seal it off and stop water from getting into your home.
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
