Pittsburgh Waterproofing Systems
Gillece Services provides interior and exterior waterproofing systems using a French drain or a sump pump. French drains are a type of excavation waterproofing that address foundation problems. French drains are typically a great option for new construction and require little to no maintenance once installed. Sump pumps are a more common and less invasive interior waterproofing solution for groundwater issues. They are typically installed in the lowest area of your basement where they collect water and deposit it a safe distance away from your home’s exterior.
The most suitable option for your home depends on construction details, water flow and potential water problems, as well as your specific waterproofing needs. The right waterproofing system for you will also depend on if you are addressing a recurring problem or looking for a method of prevention.
Sources of Water Problems & Solutions
Water can enter your home from groundwater, rainfall, leaking pipes, and other natural and artificial sources, inside or outside of your home. The consequences can range from minimal water damage to irreversible, devastating damage. A small leak or source of water can cause damp spots to form on basement walls or floors, and over time, moisture that is not addressed can lead to the formation of mold and mildew, attract bugs, create a musty odor, rot wood, and more.
Larger leaks and flooding can lead to damage that may ruin furniture, irreplaceable items, and the overall condition of your basement. Severe water damage also has the potential to jeopardize your home’s foundation. Waterproofing solutions help prevent damage and loss to keep your home standing strong.
Waterproofing to Maintain a Safe, Dry, Comfortable Home
Waterproofing systems installed by Gillece Services help stop water from getting into your home by locating sources where it may originate, especially if you have had issues before. Waterproofing is also a way to maintain the condition and value of your home, since water damage can diminish both, especially over time. Overall, a waterproofing system for your home means keeping it dry and at lower risk for damage. This can result in a clean and comfortable environment for you and your family.
