Basement Waterproofing Pittsburgh
Waterproofing your basement or foundation walls protects your home against damage caused by water seepage and the build-up of hydrostatic pressure. It also reduces the chances of your family being exposed to the harmful effects of mold growth.
Puddles of water on the basement floor, wet walls or a musty smell in your basement can all be caused by a variety of things. The video on this page demonstrates how to test if there is condensation inside your basement, or if water is leaking through your foundation walls. Either result means that your home isn’t waterproof.
You want to be assured that waterproofing your basement will keep your home and family safe for years to come. Most basement waterproofing companies in Pittsburgh will provide a free inspection to confirm your findings. We’ll also be able to determine the best solution for your home depending on the causes of basement problems.
Have a list of questions to ask before hiring any contractor, even for a free inspection, since The Basement Health Association has certified less than 1% of waterproofing contractors in Pittsburgh. Keystone Basement Systems is proud to be among them, and to hold an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.
We use the Dry Ops℠ process for all waterproofing work we do to your home. That means that our job isn’t done until you’re completely satisfied. For your peace of mind, a Lifetime Warranty backs all of our work on water intrusion and structural repair. Included in the warranty is our exclusive 5-year System Diagnostic that provides regular inspections and maintenance for all work performed by Keystone Basement Systems, at no additional cost!
Warning Signs You Need Basement Waterproofing
Too often, homeowners believe that if there are no easily visible signs of foundation damage, their home does not need waterproofing. Unfortunately, once there are visible signs, such as water in the basement, a substantial amount of damage may have already been done. Understanding the four stages of basement problems will help you assess the damage to your own basement.
Waterproofing Solutions For Wet Basements
Because not every home or waterproofing case is the same, there is not one clear solution of how to stop basement leaks or foundation damage. That is why we offer multiple waterproofing solutions, often used as combined methods, in order to fully keep your home and family safe and dry.
Interior And Exterior Waterproofing
Basement waterproofing solutions, customized to your needs, will prevent water from damaging any part of your home. Waterproofing solutions that aren’t tailored to address specific causes of the damage to your home could end up costing much more in the future.
French Drains And Sump Pumps
The basement drainage solutions we use at Keystone Basement Systems are designed with your peace of mind as our priority.

Carbon Fiber Straps And Wall Anchors
Depending on the severity of damage to your basement or foundation, regaining the structural integrity of your home could be accomplished in as little as one day with our carbon fiber wall repair system. More serious damage can be repaired by other methods, up to and including replacing basement walls.
