Water issues are a common issue for North Hills homes. Fortunately, at Pittsburgh Drain Guys, we specialize in waterproofing and drainage solutions to help manage these issues and protect your home from water damage.
Downspout Drainage for North Hills Homeowners
Poorly placed downspouts and blocked gutters can cause major damage to your North Hills home. To resolve this issue, we specialize in downspout drainage solutions for your home.
If your downspout is too close to your home’s foundation, we can install a downspout extension to direct the water away from your home. To keep water away from your home’s foundation, your downspouts should be draining at least 10 feet from the foundation.
Once we place your downspout extension, we will bury them 5 to 6 inches beneath the surface of your lawn. Our experienced team will evaluate your yard. Based on the grade of your property, we may need to install more than 10 feet of downspout extension. We recommend 20 feet of downspout extensions if you have extra room on your property.
Waterproofing Services in North Hills
At Pittsburgh Drain Guys, we specialize in interior, basement, and foundation waterproofing for your North Hills homes. Our waterproofing services help:
- Prevent mold growth
If you’ve noticed cracks in your basement walls and floors, water seepage, dampness, musty odors, mildew, or dry rotted and warped paneling, this is a sign that interior waterproofing is needed. With our interior waterproofing, we will install an interior french drain that collects the water and a sump pump that carries it away from the foundation.
With our basement waterproofing services, we will be able to help you keep your walls and floor waterproof while also preventing mold growth, keeping valuables safe from damage, and protecting the structural integrity of your home.
Our foundation waterproofing services will alleviate the pressure water runoff places on your foundation. This constant pressure will eventually lead to damage to your foundation’s structure. Our foundation waterproofing service for North Hills homes involves installing an exterior french drain to collect the water runoff and direct it away from your home’s foundation.
Exterior French Drain Installation in North Hills
An exterior French drain is a perforated pipe filled with gravel and placed in a trench. This pipe works to collect water runoff, directing it away from your foundation to prevent pressure buildup and damage.
Exterior french drains are installed around the perimeter of your home or behind retaining walls to preserve their structural integrity. If you live on a hill or a slope, your exterior French drain will rely on gravity to work. If your property is mostly flat, you will likely need a sump pump to carry the water away from your foundation.
If you have noticed that your basement is flooding regularly or you have water ponding in your yard, you likely have poor soil drainage and could benefit significantly from installing a French drain.
