Many McMurray home experience water issues, which is why Pittsburgh Drain Guys offers waterproofing and drainage solutions to help manage these issues and protect the structure of your home.
Downspout Drainage for McMurray Homeowners
If you have blocked gutters or poorly installed downspouts, this can damage your McMurray home. To resolve this issue, we specialize in various downspout drainage solutions.
If the downspout is too close to the home’s foundation, we can install a downspout extension to route water away from your home. We recommend that downspouts drain at least 10 feet from the home’s foundation.
Once we’ve placed your downspout extension, we will bury them 5 to 6 inches below the surface of your yard. Additionally, we will inspect your yard, and based on the grade of your property; we may need to install more than 10 feet of downspout extensions. Twenty feet of downspout extensions is highly recommended if your property can accommodate it.
Waterproofing Services in McMurray
At Pittsburgh Drain Guys, we offer basement, interior, and foundation waterproofing to McMurray homeowners. These waterproofing services can help prevent mold growth and mildew while protecting your home against leaks.
Signs you need interior waterproofing include cracks in your basement walls and floors, water seepage, dampness, musty odors, mildew, or dry rotted and warped paneling. Our interior waterproofing includes installing an interior french drain that collects the water and a sump pump that moves it away from your foundation.
Basement waterproofing on your walls and floors will help prevent mold growth, preserve the structural integrity of your home, and keep your items safe from water damage.
With foundation waterproofing, we can alleviate the water runoff pressure on your foundation, which can damage the structure. Our foundation waterproofing services for McMurray homes include installing an exterior french drain to collect water runoff and divert it away from your foundation.
Exterior French Drain Installation in McMurray
We will install a perforated pipe filled with gravel into a trench along your foundation with an exterior French drain. This pipe will collect water runoff and directs it away from the home to prevent damage.
We can place exterior French drains around the perimeter of your home and behind retaining walls to help them maintain their structural integrity. Gravity will do all the work for homes on a hill or slope. If you live on a flat surface, you will need a sump pump to carry away the water runoff.
If your basement is flooding regularly or you have water pooling in your yard, it means you have poor soil drainage and likely need a French drain to resolve the issue.
