Cranberry homes commonly experience water issues. That is why Pittsburgh Drain Guys specialize in drainage and waterproofing solutions to help homeowners manage these issues and protect the structural integrity of their homes.
Downspout Drainage Services for Cranberry Homeowners
Having blocked gutters or poorly placed downspouts can cause major damage to your Cranberry home. To remedy this issue, we specialize in downspout drainage solutions.
If your downspout is too close to your home’s foundation, we can install a downspout extension. This will route the water away from your home. Your downspout should drain at least 10 feet from your home’s foundation.
Once the downspout extension is placed, we will bury them 5 to 6 inches below the surface of your yard to keep them protected and out of sight. Our experienced team will evaluate your yard. Depending on the grade of your property, we may be required to install more than 10 feet of downspout extensions. If you have the space on your property, twenty feet of downspout extensions is ideal.
Waterproofing Services in Cranberry
To keep your home dry and free of water damage, we specialize in interior, basement, and foundation waterproofing. Our specialized waterproofing services help prevent mold growth, mildew while protecting your home against leaks.
- If you have noticed:
- Cracks in your basement walls and floors
- Water seepage
- Musty odors
- Dry rotted and warped paneling
These are signs indicating that interior waterproofing is needed. Our interior waterproofing includes installing an interior french drain. This works by collecting the water and then using a sump pump that carries it away from your foundation.
With our waterproofing services for your basement walls and floors, you can prevent mold growth, preserve the structural integrity of your home, and keep your valuables safe from water damage.
We also provide foundation waterproofing services to help alleviate the pressure water runoff places on your foundation. Without alleviating this pressure, the water will eventually damage your foundation’s structure. Our foundation waterproofing service for Cranberry homes includes installing an exterior french drain to collect water runoff and then direct it away from your foundation.
Exterior French Drain Installation in Cranberry
An exterior French drain is installed to protect the foundation of your home and the structural integrity of retaining walls. This is a perforated pipe filled with gravel that is placed in a trench. This pipe collects water runoff and directs it away from your foundation to prevent water pressure build-up and damage.
We install exterior French drains around the perimeter of the home or behind a retaining wall to help keep them structurally sound. For homes on a hill or a slope, the exterior French drain will rely on gravity to work. If your home is on flat land, you will need a sump pump to carry the water away from your home’s foundation.
You may need an exterior French drain if:
- You’ve noticed that your basement is flooding regularly
- Water is pooling heavily in your yard.
These signs indicate that your property could benefit greatly from having Pittsburgh Drain Guys install an exterior French drain. Cranberry homeowners can rely on Pittsburgh Drain Guys for all their waterproofing and French drain needs. Contact us today to learn more!
