Water issues are a common problem for Wexford homes. Fortunately, Pittsburgh Drain Guys specialize in waterproofing and drainage solutions to help manage these issues and protect the structural integrity of your home.
Downspout Drainage for Wexford Homeowners
Blocked gutters or poorly placed downspouts can cause significant damage to your Wexford home. To remedy this issue, we specialize in downspout drainage solutions.
When your downspout is too close to your home’s foundation, we can install a downspout extension to route the water away from your home. Downspouts should drain t least 10 feet from the foundation.
After placing your downspout extension, we will bury them 5 to 6 inches below the surface of your yard. We will evaluate your yard, and depending on the grade of your property; we may be required to install more than 10 feet of downspout extensions. Twenty feet of downspout extensions is recommended if your property has space.

Our foundation waterproofing services alleviate the pressure water runoff places on your foundation, eventually leading to damage to your foundation’s structure.

Exterior French Drain Installation in Wexford
An exterior French drain 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 avoid pressure buildup and damage.
Exterior French drains are placed around the perimeter of your home or behind retaining walls to maintain their structural integrity. If you live on a hill or a slope, your exterior French drain will rely on gravity to work, whereas if you don’t, you will need a sump pump to carry the water away from the foundation.
Suppose you’ve noticed that your basement is flooding regularly or water is pooling heavily in your yard. In that case, it is a sign that you have poor soil drainage and could benefit significantly from having Pittsburgh Drain Guys install an exterior French drain.
