Retaining Walls and Exterior Drains

Holding Back the Elements

Western Pennsylvania is a land of hills, slopes, and steep inclines, and the Pittsburgh region is one of the best examples. We know that wind and weather work their magic every year, moving your property downhill whenever and wherever they have the chance.

At D-Bug Waterproofing, we work to keep your home and your property safe from the assaults of mother nature. For over 80 years, we’ve been serving your neighbors with foundation repair, basement waterproofing, and excavation and landscape grading.

Controlling water in all its forms is our business, whether its rain entering your basement, freezing ground cracking your foundation, or a part of your yard slumping into the street.

Retaining walls hold back soil where erosion is a concern, and by keeping your yard in great shape, they can help maintain and even improve property value.

Strength and Great Looks in One

Omni-Stone pavers by OmniProAt D-Bug, we’ve chosen VERSA-LOK retaining wall systems as the best option for the homeowners we serve. To start, VERSA-LOK provides exceptional choices in color, texture, and size.  Even blended mixes and custom colors are available. Wall pieces come in different heights and widths, and blocks are available in both a traditional split-face texture and a natural weathered look.  VERSA-LOK advantages include:

  • Environmentally friendly, sustainable materials.
  • Straight wall facings, to discourage climbing and improve freeze/thaw resistance.
  • Free-draining wall face minimizes hydrostatic pressure.
  • Easy field modification, with no special units needed to craft special designs.

As a complement to our VERSA-LOK walls, D-Bug has selected Omni-Stone by OmniPro as the highest-quality paving stone to create walkways, patios, or sidewalks near your new retaining wall.
