Why is my basement leaking?
Many homes in the Pittsburgh area have basements, and they’re useful for more space or to create extra rooms. However, when the water table under the ground rises due to rain (and we do get quite a bit of rain in Pittsburgh), it causes pressure that pushes against your foundation. That pressure will send water up through the cracks in your floor and foundation walls. Then, you have a leak—or worse, your basement starts to flood. You may also have problems around your lawn that are making the problem worse. If your yard is sloped towards your home’s foundation, then rain and runoff are being delivered right to your basement walls.
Basement leaking issues include:
- Water Table
- Poor lot sloping
- Rain Runoff issues

Sump Pumps & Battery Backups
The purpose of a sump pump is to help keep your basement and the area under your home, along with the foundation, dry and healthy.
An interior French Drain is a trench providing a channel for the water to flow through and into a sump pump basin.
