Mr. Jeff Martello inspected the bowing foundation wall and it was determined the amount of movement was unacceptable and required medium-duty reinforcement.  CarbonArmor is an ideal product to permanently reinforce the bowed basement walls.  Foreman Austin Stone installed the straps and the customer was very satisfied.

Job Stories From Allegheny County, PA
Floor Leveling in Gibsonia, PA

A homeowner from Gibsonia, PA called us regarding sagging floors in their home.  The floor platform was uneven when they moved in 6-years ago and continued to get worse.  Over time, there was a pronounced dip in the middle of the floor and the sagging floors were deemed unstable by a 3rd party engineer.  Their engineer advocated that the floor platform be leveled and reinforced so that they would remain safe and level into the future.  The engineer recommended a high level contractor be used and hence Keystone Basement Systems was called out to the home. 

 

Keystone has extensive experience repairing sagging floor platforms in our area.  For the last 19+ years we have lifted and reinforced thousands of issues just like this.    We used a series of SmartJacks and Reinforcement Beams to lift and secure the area.  The floor platform had sunk 3.75" before the work started and was permanently restored to 0.25" off perfect level when done.  This was almost perfection.

Basement Waterproofing in Allison Park, PA

The homeowners had a leaking basement that they wanted to have professionally addressed.  We sent out our most seasoned inspector, Mr. Kelly Blackburn, to assess the foundation to see what was required to fix the foundation permanently.  After his site visit, a scope of work was presented and the homeowners put their trust in Keystone.  

 

Our foreman, Mr. Brad Stone, installed the internal waterproofing system and the homeowners were very impressed.  In addition to leaving a public review of the work, they mentioned Brad by name.  

Basement Waterproofing in Mt. Lebanon, PA

Andrew visited the client today to investigate a leak in his basement.  After a thorough foundation analysis, Andrew found the problem area ad designed a repair plan specific to the needs of the home, relative to the intended use of the space.  The solution includes WaterGuard and a TripleSafe unit for the appropriate protection.  

 

After the inspection the customer was so impressed with Andrew's repair plan he awarded us the business and posed with the yard sign!

Basement Waterproofing and Wall Membrane in Duquesne, PA

The church rectory located next to the Christ the Light of the World Church in Duquesne  would get over an inch of water in the basement when it rained.  We were contacted by Rev. Dennis Colamorino to address the issue.  After an inspection of the property the damage was associated age related deterioration rather than any defect.  As such, the building was retrofitted with a waterproofing system to prevent basement seepage and flooding.  

 

An internal french drain using WaterGuard was installed with BrightWall Waterproofing Wall Membrane.  A TripleSafe Pump and other features were employed to permanently ensure the basement remained dry.  The project was a huge success.  On the last day of the work their was a very large rain event.  During the final review Rev Colamarino commented on how dry the pace was and that if the work was not done there would be an inch of water on the floor.  He was extremely impressed.

Basement Waterproofing in Bethel Park, PA

Chris Bailey spearheaded this project from the beginning.  This was a finished area that was taking on water.  Our initial visit is a visual, non-destructive inspection.  This is where you need a pro.  Rather than ripping down walls to see what is going on, we use infrared imaging, hygrometers, moisture detection equipment, etc.  Without any impact to the basement, we found out what area was leaking and designed a system to address the deficiencies.  After impressing the client we earned their business.

 

David Cain, Sr. was the project foreman assigned to this project.  He was matched because of his ability to perform intrusive work with little permanent impact.  WaterGuard was installed and the basement was permanently protected and under warranty.

 

The customer was very pleased and gave us a nice review.  We did, however, get a call from the client.  After promptly sending out a service technician we found that it was a matter of condensation and not water intrusion.  Dehumidification was added to resolve the matter.

Dehumidifier for Damp Basement in Pittsburgh, PA

This client called our office because they had a wet basement and high humidity.  There was a musty smell in the basement and they also had a moldy smell.  The point of water penetration in the basement was not obvious at first.  Our office sent out Mr. Jeff Martello to determine the issue as he has a vast diagnostic knowledge and capability.

 

After Jeff listened to the needs of the customer he performed his inspection and fund that the water penetration was coming under a bench and drawer fixture.  The wood was rotting and producing the musty and moldy smell.  He designed a system to address the needs of the home and the homeowner hired Keystone to fix the issue.

 

Crew Foreman Juan Pantojas III and Co-Foreman Scott Booth installed the system and solved the issue using WaterGuard and a Sedona High Performance Dehumidifier.

Foundation Crack and CarbonArmor in Liberty Borough, PA

 A crack was discovered by the homeowner which was very concerning.  Because there was no previous knowledge of the crack, they were not sure if it was a problem or not.  Service Manager Mr. John Rivera and his team had similar concerns as to whether the crack was actively moving or not.  Thus a crack monitor was installed to verify if active movement was occurring.  

 

After a period of evaluation it was evident that the crack was widening as the result of subsidence.  Excavation of the area ensued.  The soils had compacted, which allowed the foundation to sink.  Push piers were driven down to bedrock to support the foundation independent of the native soils with poor bearing capacity.  Additionally, the crack was stitched using CarbonArmor carbon fiber strapping to ensure it never opened up again.  

 

All of the work received a 25-year transferable warranty.

Basement Waterproofing and Foundation Repair in Glenshaw, PA

The homeowner contacted Keystone to evaluate a basement water issue as well as a bowing wall.  Inspector Kelly Blackburn evaluated the home and determined that a waterproofing system was needed, but more importantly, the walls required structural repair.  Moreover, there were other walls with cracks that were not as severe, but concerned the customer.  Crack monitors were installed to evaluate these areas as they were not necessarily in need of repair.  More information is needed to make a final determination.  

 

Austin Stone was the foreman on the project and he installed PowerBrace, WaterGuard, Crack Monitors, and a TripleSafe Pump.  The owner was very pleased and asked to leave a review.  By following our core values we can show the public that we are a different company and one that is a force for good.  Another satisfied customer.

Leaking Basement in Sewickley, PA

The homeowner called us because of a leaking basement and high humidity that was causing a musty odor.  Inspector Andrew McIntire was sent to the home to inspect the issues that it was having.  The basement odor was strong and it was obvious that there was a lot of water damage.  A Sedona High Performance Dehumidifier was proposed to address this aspect of the problem.  The wet basement was caused by an age related foundation leak.  WaterGuard was proposed to address this problem.  The client was pleased with the plan and wrote a kind review online.

Bowed Basement Foundation Wall Repair in Wexford, PA

It’s never a good thing to have a bowed or cracking basement foundation wall, but it is even worse when the basement is finished because usually the finishing materials are in the way of where the repairs will be placed.  Most contractors are not experts in foundation repair and require the entire finished wall to be removed in order to repair it.  An expert firm like Keystone Basement Systems, Inc may be able to make more precise points of entry into the finished wall to reinforce it, while keeping a good portion of the finished wall in tact.  This way, the restoration cost is far less than if the wall had been completely removed. 

 

CarbonArmor Wall Reinforcement System is a state-of-the-art solution for bowing and cracking foundation walls. Using the same technology the Army Corps of Engineers uses for reinforcing bomb shelters, the system reinforces walls and is guaranteed. 

 

The CarbonArmor® System includes flexible carbon fiber fabric straps that are up to 10 times stronger in tension than steel. Using high strength epoxy resin, the carbon fiber straps are bonded to the interior face of the wall. The straps will stabilize the wall. This system requires no exterior excavation, installs quickly, and won't impact future basement finishing.

Waterproofing with WaterGuard & TripleSafe in Coraopolis, PA

Taylor of Coraopolis, PA wanted to waterproof his basement after experiencing several water leaks that caused damage. Taylor set up an appointment with Keystone Basement Systems to see what repairs could be done to protect his basement from harm. Field Inspector Chris B. worked to design a customized plan to waterproof the space. 

Keystone Basement Systems went straight to work installing the new waterproofing products, WaterGuard and TripleSafe. Head foreman, Chris L., and his team installed the WaterGuard drains in the basement to collect the water leaks that then directs the leaks to the TripleSafe sump pump. The TripleSafe sump pump then pumps the leaks out of the home entirely. With the help of many people here at Keystone Basement Systems, this basement is dry and safe!

Garage Waterproofing with WaterGuard & TripleSafe in Crescent Twp., PA

Amanda of Crescent Twp, PA was looking to have some waterproofing work done in her garage, so she decided to call Keystone Basement Systems. Field Inspector Jeff M. recommended installing a TripleSafe sump pump, and a WaterGuard system.

Foreman, Austin S. installed the products. The TripleSafe sump pump is guaranteed to keep your home dry in three ways. It includes a primary pump, a secondary pump, and battery-powered backup pump. WaterGuard is installed around the perimeter of the basement floor and it is used to collect water that seeps through the basement walls. It then takes that collected water and guides it to the sump pump in order for it to be removed from the home.

CarbonArmor Saves Wall in Etna, PA

Chris Bailey came up with a plan that included horizontal straps across the top of the wall that did not have a viable top attachment. Most companies would have just installed the supports without a proper top attachment because they would not have spent the time to come up with an alternative plan to PROPERLY protect the customer’s home. Chris Layne opened that wall to find that we had a situation even worse than previously thought. A bad company/foreman would either walk away or maybe continue on without thought for the integrity of the structure. Chris knew what he was looking at and made the only responsible choice which was to WAIT! He knew that to properly fix a wall this bad, it required a special support structure that had to be installed first. This was not part of the original plan as we did not know how bad the wall was behind the finished wall. Chris and his team lost an entire day of productivity waiting for Chuck Morrison who dropped everything once he heard about the issue and drove the KBS braces out to Chris to properly brace the wall. Chris and his crew were able to brace the wall finally by the end of the first day. They got started on the repairs on day two which meant the job would run long and so he worked through the weekend to make sure he did not fall behind with other customers and ruin their plans! The end result is a proper solution that protects that customer’s most prized non human possession.

Waterproofing and CleanSpace in Greentree. PA

Corey called us with water coming through the walls of his basement and mold slowly creeping up from the floor. he was concerned about the long term effects of the water and mold and wanted his basement to be dry, safe, and more pleasant to look at. We sent our system design specialist Chris Bailey out to do a full inspection of the house and determine the cause of the problem as well as create a custom solution. 

With water entering the walls at both high and low points, as well as the cove (where the walls meet the floor), Chris determined that a full perimeter waterproofing system was needed in order to provide complete protection. This included the WaterGuard below-floor drain system to collect the water and a sump pump to actively discharge the water collected.

PowerBraces in Carrick, PA

Popular in the Pittsburgh Area are coal cellars, root cellars, and unconditioned rooms under front porches. In this case, Chris Baliey found the left wall, although small was pushed to a large degree. He knew we had a fix for that!

 

Foreman, Austin Stone installed 2 PowerBraces in short order. The precision of his work and the quality products we use will allow for a more solid foundation. Now this cellar can be used safely again.

WaterGuard solves issue in Carnegie home

A Carnegie homeowner contacted Keystone Basement Systems after noticing a steady leak in their basement. Kelly Blackburn, was sent to the home to provide a quote for the homeowner. After a thorough inspection of the basement, Kelly presented his findings to the homeowner and recommended the WaterGuard French Drain and SuperSump Pump System as the best solution.

The homeowner agreed this was the best solution for their home and scheduled their installation appointment. A few weeks later, our crew led by foreman Juan Pantojas, arrived at the home and installed the systems.

Wall Support in Oakdale, PA

A homeowner in Carnegie found cracks along the back wall of her walkout basement. Inspector Chris Bailey recommended CarbonArmor straps to sure up the wall. Foreman Austin Stone and his crew performed the job expertly. Ann is happy she can now finish her basement and increase her living space.

Waterproofing in Sewickley, PA

A homeowner living in Sewickley, PA noticed that water was seeping through the floors of their basement, so they contacted Keystone Basement Systems. A wet basement can cause structural damage and health risks to your home. Installing a durable waterproofing system prevents these issues from happening. 

 

Our Field Inspector Brian provided a thorough inspection of the basement. After, he presented his findings to the homeowner and recommended the WaterGuard coupled with a TripleSafe sump pump system as the best solution. WaterGuard will collect any outside water seeping into the basement. The water is then directed to the SmartSump Pump System where it's pumped back to the outside. Our crew, led by foreman Austin Stone installed the systems a few weeks after the estimate was provided. Peace of mind was restored to the homeowner knowing their basement is fully protected.

Waterproofing in Penn Hills, PA

 

A resident in Penn Hills, PA was experiencing water coming into their basement walls and floors during heavy rainfall. The cause of this issue is loose soil that is used to fill the hole around the foundation. Over time, this soil settles and becomes saturated during periods of heavy rainfall. This weight of saturated soil puts hydrostatic pressure on the walls, causing water to seep in. Dry weather is also a part of the problem during periods of drought. The soil can shrink away from the foundation when it is dried up, leaving voids for the next rain to easily flow down into the basement. There are many negative effects of a damp basement such as smelly damp carpets, condensation, mold, and increased heating and cooling bills.

Wet Basement in McKees Rocks, PA

The owner of this home in McKees Rocks, PA was in need of basement repair. he noticed that the basement always had a damp, musty smell. he also thought that there might be mold in the basement. Keystone Basement Systems inspected the basement and determined that the relative humidity in the basement was very high. High humidity is a great environment for mold growth and should be treated right away. The inspector, Nick, also noticed that moisture was entering the basement in the form of water vapor through the concrete walls. Concrete is porous and was allowing moisture to get into the basement.

David, one of Keystone Basement Systems' foremen, and his crew installed over 100 feet of WaterGuard drainage system partnered with a TripleSafe pumping station.

The installation crew also installed a Sedona basement dehumidifier to keep this basement dry and prevent future mold growth. The homeowner had a dehumidifier previously, but it was a standard dehumidifier and not powerful enough to dry all of the air in this basement. The Sedona is the best basement dehumidification system available because it can filter particles out of the air to less than two microns in size, which is smaller than any mold spore or dust mite dropping! The SaniDry dries out the air in this basement and even dries out the building materials! The homeowner was thrilled with the new look and feel of his basement!

Referral from one valued customer to another

The homeowner had gotten Keystone Basement Systems name from a past valued customer. He called on us to help with a problem he was having in his basement/garage. His walls were cracking and water was seeping in getting his things he stored down there wet. Keystone sent out their expert field inspector Jeff Martello. Jeff sat down with the homeowner talked it over and then proceeded to inspect and evaluate the problem using the tools and extensive knowledge he has for problems like these. Jeff then came up the plan to use 5 DownSpout litter lines to pull the water away from the hose and then moved onto planning for the wall fix. He implemented a 29 foot PowerBrace, 3 push piers with 2 top deck push pier brackets, and PointCrack every 40 inches. Foreman Juan Pantojas and crew went out and installed the items and put Jeff's plan into action. The customer has expressed his gratitude and also referred us to others.

Waterproofing in Pittsburgh

The homeowners had called in to request help on a water problem they were having. Keystone Basement Systems sent out field inspector Darryl Butler. Darryl sat down and talked about the problem with the homeowners before going down to do his inspection of the basement. After doing a extensive inspection and taking all the need measurements and amazing notes he came up with a great game plan. He then sat and talked with the homeowners again going over every fine detail of his plan to insure they both understood it and agreed with it. his plan used the amazing TripleSafe Sump Pump, a Drainage connector and WaterGuard. Keystones crew of installers went out and installed all of Darryl's plan and the house is back to being dry.

Please don't mess up my new bathroom

This homeowner heard about Keystone Basement Systems through his mother who raved about how great we did, and by the end result he told his friend who also called us!! The homeowner informed us he had just put a new bathroom in and it was getting wet but only because it was in the basement that was taking on water. The homeowner also had concerns that if we fixed it that his new bathroom would be "safe" from any kind of construction. Keystone knew just who to send out .Keystone sent out field inspector Brian McWhirter, he has an outstanding knack for being able to figure out how to do exactly what the customer requests. Brian and the homeowner sat down and discussed the problem and how important it was to them to have it fixed WITHOUT disturbing the new bathroom. Brian then inspected the problem, and took some great pictures for the installers, with notes!!  Brian and the homeowner sat down and went out his analogy and the plan on what to do, in fine detail, reassuring the homeowner of the fact that Keystone could do the job without doing anything to his new bathroom. Brian came up with the plan to install a new drainage system, a TripleSafe Sump Pump and WaterGuard and all by doing so by tunneling the shower and not hurting anything in the bathroom. The homeowners were extremely happy with the end result.

Back in town and found cracks

The homeowners called into Keystone Basement Systems after finding us on Google. They came back in town to find their now vacant rental property had a issue with the door opening and closing properly. Upon further inspection of their house they found cracks in the walls in the basement. Keystone Basement Systems sent out one of their best field inspectors to sit down with the homeowner discuss the problem and then further inspect the issue himself and come up with a plan of action to fix it. The field inspector came up with the plan of using 2 CarbonArmor straps and 3 underpins to not only fix the issue but to hold the wall together and prevent it from deteriorating any further. The CarbonArmor® Wall Reinforcing System is a state-of-the-art solution for bowing and cracking foundation walls. Using the same technology the Army Corps of Engineers developed to reinforce bomb shelters, skyscrapers, and bridges, we use CarbonArmor® to stabilize your basement walls. After reviewing his plan with the homeowner in fine detail Keystone sent out one of its best crews to install the straps and fill in anything they saw with Crackpoint.

wet floors in Bethel Park

The homeowners called in to Keystone Basement Systems to help figure out a solution to the wet floors and walls they were having. Keystone then sent out field inspector Brian McWhirter to inspect the problem areas, come up with a plan to fix it, and sit down with the homeowner to explain it to them. Which he did and his plan was brilliant and used such great products such as a 110 foot Internal French Drain. This might surprise you, but French drains don't originate from France at all! In fact, the concept was designed by Henry Flagg French in Massachusetts in the mid-1800s. A French drain is not a specific item per se, but rather a name for the space between a basement wall and the concrete slab that allows water to drain outside of the home rather than pool on the floor.  Brian also included 4 extra cleanouts and a 3 foot Speedy Drain.

J channel tying a Internal French Drain System

The homeowner reached out to Keystone Basement Systems for help on her Internal French Drain System. Keystone sent out one of their field inspectors to talk with him and look at the problem. After completing his inspection he informed the homeowner that he needed a J channel to be tied to the already existing Internal French Drain System.

Bowing walls in Bakertown

The homeowners met with Keystone Basement Systems at a homeshow that they were involved in due to some sagging in their floors and some gaps they had noticed in their basement ceilings. Keystone Basement Systems sent out a filed inspector to further talk with them and then do a evaluation of the problem , as he needs to do this to come up with a plan to fix this home. After doing so he decided that the SmartJack System would be ideal for this house.  The SmartJack® system is a foundation repair product that provides a permanent solution to these problems. The SmartJack® is installed by attached steel support beams to your floor joists and a sturdy base at the floor. Once all posts are installed, they are adjusted to raise your floors to a level position.

No leak for 20 years then all of the sudden my basement is wet and smelly

This homeowner had owned this house for 20 plus years and was shocked one day to find her basement submerged in water. She thought it was a fluke thing but then discovered it was happening all the time and now she has a smell of mildew down there. She called upon Keystone Basement Systems to help her with this problem, as she found them through a fiend of hers. Keystone then sent out their best Field inspector Aaron to speak with her and then further inspect the basement to see what was happening and how it could be fixed. Upon finishing his evaluation he came up with the plan to use a internal french drain system, a Sedona dehumidifier and some CleanSpace Vapor  Barrier. If you're interested in an easy way to upgrade your basement walls, there's nothing quite like the CleanSpace® Wall System. Like our other wall systems here at Keystone Basement Systems, it can hold back water vapor passing through your foundation walls, directing it to your sump pump. With anti-microbial protection called UltraFresh built right in, no mold or mildew will grow on the CleanSpace, which will help this homeowner with her smell and problem of mildew.  

Water seepage in Bridgeville

This homeowner called in after finding Keystone Basement Systems on Google. She owns a middle townhouse in a 3 townhouse row, which includes a hoa. She noticed some water that was seeping in after every rain which she found very concerning. Keystone then sent out their Field inspector Jeff to evaluate the issue and come up with a plan to get it fixed. Upon completion of his inspection Jeff then came up with a few issues, but also a very good plan of action.  Jeff had noticed that some of her soil had eroded and that was causing a huge hole that water was settling into before seeping into her house. His plan was going to take care of that due to the fact that it included a new drainage system with a new downspout system for the townhouse. He also included installing a TripleSafe sump pump and some WaterGuard on the wall  to the back of the house where the soil issue was.

He had a sump pump installed by someone else and found out very quickly that unfortunately they did NOT stand behind not only their work but their product either. The pump that he had installed stopped working properly and was literally dumping gallons of water back into his basement. It had no alarm on it to let him know of this happening, so he had a disaster on his hands. Keystone promptly sent out a field inspector to speak with him and to evaluate the issue at hand in more detail for himself. This is done to reassure that we have come up with the proper working plan to fix the problem.

EverBrace on Collapsing Dirt Walls

Within the confines of the crawlspace, the foundational walls were ensconced by bare earth, lacking the necessary structural support. The unchecked expanse of soil bore the burden of the residence's weight overhead, leading to detrimental consequences. The lateral pressure exerted by the soil, compounded by water infiltration, precipitated the collapse of the exposed earth, jeopardizing the integrity of the foundation. To remedy this precarious situation, EverBrace—a robust solution designed to confine and stabilize the earth—was expertly employed. Notably, the application of EverBrace not only rectified the immediate concerns but also garnered a comprehensive warranty safeguarding against any prospective movement, thereby preempting potential issues. The prevailing clay soil composition in this locale further exacerbated the predicament, as its susceptibility to moisture-induced weakening compromised its ability to sustain the compressive load imposed by the structure above.

Rotted Wooden Deck Posts Replaced

To address the issue of rotted wooden deck posts, we implemented a technical solution using concrete sonotubes. These sonotubes were chosen for their durability and resistance to moisture, ensuring a longer lifespan for the deck's foundation. By replacing the wooden posts with concrete sonotubes, we eliminated the risk of rot caused by prolonged exposure to wet soil.

 

One key advantage of using concrete sonotubes is their cementitious composition, which makes them impervious to moisture and rot. This means that even if the sonotubes come into contact with soil, they will not degrade over time. Additionally, the sonotubes were recessed deep into the ground to mitigate potential movement caused by freeze/thaw cycles. This ensures the stability of the deck's foundation, reducing the likelihood of structural issues in the future.

 

Furthermore, we opted for a 12-inch diameter concrete pile to completely eliminate any wooden components in the subterranean section of the posts. This decision was made to maximize the structural integrity and longevity of the deck foundation. By using a larger diameter pile, we increased the load-bearing capacity of the support structure, enhancing its overall stability and resilience.

 

Additionally, the concrete piles were extended 6 inches above ground level to prevent water from coming into contact with the wooden deck support posts. This strategic elevation helps safeguard against moisture-related damage and prolongs the life of the wooden components.

 

In summary, the implementation of concrete sonotubes with a 12-inch diameter and proper recessing and elevation techniques has significantly improved the durability and stability of the deck's foundation, ensuring its longevity and structural integrity for years to come.

Imagine a scenario where a homeowner is grappling with precisely this predicament: a section of their property sits at a higher elevation, sloping down towards their home. As a consequence, rainwater accumulates and pools, transforming their yard into a soggy marshland. This not only creates an unsightly and inconvenient situation for the homeowner but also poses a problem for their furry friend – their beloved canine companion.

 

Enter the hero of our tale: drainage installation. In a strategic maneuver aimed at combating this watery menace, drainage systems are deployed at the base of the incline. These systems are ingeniously designed to intercept and divert the excess water, preventing it from inundating the yard and transforming it into a muddy quagmire. The primary objective? To reclaim the yard from the clutches of marshiness and restore it to its former glory – a lush, green oasis where the homeowner's dog can frolic to its heart's content without fear of muddying its paws.

 

But the ingenuity doesn't end there. The diverted water is carefully channeled to a designated area where it can flow away from the home, sparing it from the threat of water damage. This strategic redirection ensures that the homeowner can bid farewell to worries about soggy yards and muddy paws, allowing them to enjoy their outdoor space to the fullest.
