Basement Waterproofing reviews in Pittsburgh


We were pleased with Keystone. We called before the 4th of
Pittsburgh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
holiday and were pleased that the salesman was willing to make a sales call on a holiday weekend (

We dealt with
Pittsburgh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
, who was great: very straightforward, no hard sell, seemed very trustworthy and reliable. Even gave me his personal cell phone number and responded to every call or text. It took me 3 weeks to clear my basement for them (it's a crowded basement).
The lead installer called me the night before the scheduled job just to go over details. While I was not home for the job, my wife was and she reported that they were clean (very clean, wrapping up the contents of my basement in a giant plastic wrap) and professional. It is a heavy, messy job but they got it done in 3 days. This includes digging a trench, putting in a pipe and a sump pump, back filling with pebbles, then concreting over. We are talking thousands of pounds of materials going in and out of my home.
And my basement is DRY now. Dry as a bone, even in horrific downpours. Very pleased.
Only one tiny complaint: they left one back of trash and the cardboard box for the sump pump behind, which I had to put out with the trash/recycling. Nothing heavy, just a minor annoyance.

Had been getting water dripping down walls and on floor after significant rainfalls. Went with Bakers because of their reputation and they had done work for my brother a couple of years ago. Bakers scheduled

to inspect the garage and create the work order.
Pittsburgh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
was very responsive to my numerous questions and we settled on the work to be done and the price. My only complaint with
Pittsburgh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
is that he got my municipality wrong, which is significant because my municipality has much more stringent building permit and inspection policies.
Pittsburgh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
said it was my responsibility to secure any required building permits and to schedule inspections. When I applied for the building permit, the code officer said that Bakers would know when to call for any required inspections. Fortunately, Bakers' building crew acknowledged this and scheduled the inspection at the proper time.
My contract required me to remove a wall-mounted furnace and
Pittsburgh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
advised me to remove the wiring from the wall where the Cleanspace wall system would be installed.
My work dates were given to me shortly after the contract was accepted and the building crew arrived on time according to the scheduled start date. The job took 1 more day than anticipated. The work was done professionally and the foreman answered my questions satisfactorily as they arose. The work crew seemed to have trouble installing the Cleanspace wall system. There are a few bulges and wrinkles in it. I am concerned that the Cleanspace wall system
Pittsburgh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
the underlying block walls and any problems that might develop in those walls. How would I know if those walls started to buckle? My other area of concern is the manner in which the outlet of the sump pump was tied in with a downspout. The diameter of the outlet pipe is considerably smaller than the diameter of the downspout pipe. The tie-in is an adapter in-line with the downspout pipe with an opening in it with the same diameter as the downspout pipe. This opening is very close to ground level. The sump pump outlet goes through this opening and terminates just past the boundary of the downspout pipe. When I asked about this, I was told that downspouts tend to freeze in the winter and if frozen, and the sump pump activates, its discharge would be able to escape via the large opening in the downspout pipe. I am concerned about soil, animals, and other debris getting into this opening and clogging the downspout.
Other than the two concerns with the work and my experience with the building permit, I am happy with the job. There have been several significant rainfalls since the work was completed and the garage has remained dry.

Over the last winter a large part of my basement floor had an upheaval and there are many cracks. There was also a little mold underneath a couple of windows. I called
Pittsburgh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
because they advertise a free estimate and are highly rated on Angie's List. the person I spoke to on the phone was very pleasant and arranged for someone to come take a look the following week. They called to confirm the appointment the day before and said they would be there between 10Am and 11AM.
Pittsburgh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
from the company arrived a little after 11 and was very helpful. After taking a good look at everything he gave me an rough estimate of the work to replace 2/3 of the floor and said he will send me a full estimate later today. What I MOST APPRECIATED was
Pittsburgh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
's honesty about the fact that there was no real structural damage to worry about and all work would mainly be cosmetic. What I thought was an immediate need turned out to be something I can do on my own schedule. I have more pressing needs to take care of so this came as a big relief and I truly appreciate the honesty of this company's representative. You can be sure that when I do have the work done I will use this company to do the work. They don't use subcontractors and you get a true family feeling from everyone I dealt with.
- Jed H.

We had a great experience with
Pittsburgh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his crew from beginning to end. Getting an estimate was easy, with no sales pressure. We had a relatively short timeline in which we wanted to have the work done, and
Pittsburgh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
managed to fit us into his schedule. On the day of the work, his crew was professional and efficient. They performed a very dirty job, but took great care to keep the area clean.
- Peter E.

Pittsburgh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
gave a very honest opinion. He told me exactly what to do and he said: "if this was my house, that's how I would do it". He also told me that it would be easy for him to sell his product to me, but he prefers giving an honest opinion and refer me to another company that helps me with my problem. He also gave me some advice and tips on negotiation and expectations !! It is very nice yet rare to meet such an honest person. Thank you

The work two years ago and now was done in a very professional manner. They are prompt, courteous, knowledgeable, polite, and competent. This year when we had them install the outside membrane, the regional representative for the membrane manufacturer gave them the wrong directions for installing it, i.e. to install it above and below ground. When we and they discovered this error, that it should only go underground, Keystone was very responsive and took responsibility for the error. They corrected it to more than our satisfaction. Great companies stand out in how they respond when something goes wrong---and this one was top notch. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them to you.

I recently purchased a building built circa 1920's. The basement had damp wet stains on the ground near some of the perimeter edges. I was afraid it may be a structural issue where a French drain might be needed or possibly worse.
Pittsburgh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
suggested I try a dehumidifier first before jumping to any conclusions and was confident this might do the trick. He also gave me more advice on things I can do to help - like paint the walls with Drylock. I'm going to give these two suggestions a go and see what happens. I was impressed with his honesty.
- Melissa C.

We were very unhappy about how the estimating process went. They came and put on a hard sale, acting like the foundation was going to cave in if we didnt put the drain in soon. They said their schedule was really full and we should sign up for the service now to at least get on the schedule, and they we could cancel if we changed our mind. Well, they failed to state that we only had three days to cancel otherwise we would be locked in to the contract. The only way out after three days was to pay 20% of the estimate. Not knowing this we continued to shop around and got a lower quote from another basement company, but then we found out that we were locked in to Keystone. We feel that we were taken advantage of and had to pay more that we really needed to. Lesson learned, read all the fine print.
The only up side was the installers were very professional and did a teriffic job installing the drain and pump. They kept the disturbance to a minimum and cleaned up nicely afterward. They also did a real nice job finishing the concrete over the drain.
If the estimators were only as good as the installers it would have been a better experience.
- Matthew K.

At first, we were a bit skeptical when deciding to go with Keystone as our basement waterproofer. Their initial quote was much higher than any of the other providers we contacted. Also, they seemed a bit pushy on the sales side of things. We initially declined a commitment after the first guy showed up to give us an estimate. A few months after, they came back with a reduced quote. After giving a bit more of a discount, we took the bait. The final price was 30% less than they originally quoted. It still seems a bit high, but that might just be my buyers remorse nagging me.
The workers arrived promptly and were very professional and courteous. The work was completed on-time and it didn't seem like the noise or dirt was too bad. I'm no expert, but the quality of work seems good. It has been about 6 months since the work, and the french drain seems to do its job. We have not had any leaks yet, and have much enjoyed the increased usable floor space in our basement.
We did have an incidental problem with the job. We have a chest freezer in the basement that was originally plugged into an always-on outlet. However, one of the workers moved the plug to a switch-controlled outlet (used for basement lighting). We did not realize this until about 3 weeks after the job, so all of our food in the freezer spoiled. We reported this to Keystone, and they promptly apologized and sent us a check for $200 to replace the lost food. Their customer support is really on the ball.
The only other item I would bring up is that in the original quote/estimate, they proposed installing two cleanouts, one at each end of the french drain (since the sump pump is in the middle). The contract we signed only had one cleanout listed, and I didn't notice this until after the work was done. I don't know how we/they will be able to maintain the end without a cleanout, especially if it gets clogged at some point. I asked Keystone about it, and they stood by the signed contract, understandably. Some future work may be required, but we'll keep our fingers crossed and enjoy our new basement.
Thanks, Keystone!

I used this company in October 2012 and then again in
Pittsburgh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
2013. I did not want to write an immediate review as a home improvement like this isn't something that can be judged quickly in my opinion. First off the company is professional in everything they do from start to finish. My water problem was fairly serious and the Giulio expressed surprise the walls weren't buckling due to the pressure exerted by all of the water. I explained what I was looking for and Giulio did not pressure me to have the system installed all the way around the house (had I known I would have had future problems I would have done that though). The appointment for installation was set a few weeks out; the day arrived and the crew was professional in all aspects even moving items in the garage I did not have time to rearrange. They were done in the 2 days they scheduled and took great car to make sure dust and debris were contained. Everything was fine until the water found another path into the basement along 2 walls that were not part of the original work. My first call was again to
Pittsburgh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and Giulio again came out and provided a writeup. This was also scheduled a few weeks out. The crew that was handling the install had this section wrapped up in a day and left me with a basement that now had an interior drain system that went along every part of the basement that was below grade.
My only minor complaint is that I am disappointed in the price for the second installment; it was more than half the cost of the first installation which included the sump pump, it's backup, and more linear feet of drainage to install. I was expecting a price $500-$1,000 less than what I paid given that no pump installation was needed and 15 less feet of drain was required. My biggest regret is not voicing this concern outside of immediate family and friends. However I wouldn't let that
Pittsburgh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
me from using this company again if needed; I have had zero water problems since they completed the second installation and there have been some heavy rains/melting snow that tested this system. I can confidently say to any future buyer there are no water problems in the basement or garage. I am very pleased with
Pittsburgh Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and I would recommend them to anyone who needed services they offer.
