Wholistic Approach

During our consultation we will help you understand how moisture is getting in and what your options are for reducing or eliminating the damp walls or flowing water. We connect the dots where others only advise on their product or a particular part of your home.

We take a wholistic approach to trace problems to their source and can recommend low-cost non-invasive remedies if available. We look at basement wall condition, mold, site conditions, soil, gardens, gutters and drains.

Consider all your options and before investing in what are often expensive basement drainage systems.

Experience

Our background in natural building, green infrastructure, and stormwater management gives us a unique toolset and knowledge of materials.

We find the source of water and make suggestions for removing or diverting the source of the water through soil infiltration, rain barrels, or responsible piping. We can work with you to create a plan for addressing complex water problems.

Often our water tracing reveals simple repairs needed to gutters or grading. However we do find clogged pipes, old membranes, plumbing leaks, and mortar decay that leads to higher water flows inside the basement. When needed we can install or service sump pumps, footer drains and exterior basement membranes.

Request a consult:

Just send us your name + contact and we will be in touch with a day or two to setup a time to walk through your basement to diagnose the infiltration then around the house to find the sources and review your options.
The cost for our inspection and consultation is $80 and usually takes less than an hour.
 
 
Please note we are based out of the east liberty area of Pittsburgh, our service area is about 5 miles from the east liberty center but we do consultations throughout the greater Pittsburgh region and do take further jobs on case by case basis.
