About Waterproofing Specialties of Northern PA and Western NY

Waterproofing Specialties is your local Basement Systems® dealer in the Pennsylvania and New York area. We serve Warren, Olean, Du Bois and many outlying areas, including Bradford, Franklin, Saint Marys, Oil City, Punxsutawney, Clarion, Clearfield and nearby. See our full-service area.

Established in 1984, Waterproofing Specialties Inc. is a family-owned and operated business that specializes in basement waterproofing and crawl space linings. Mike Pura runs the business together with his 2 sons and wife Carol.

Before repairing basements, Waterproofing Specialties started as a company that built basements. They soon realized that it was more rewarding to repair basements than it was to build them from scratch.

Now we specialize in interior basement waterproofing, bowed wall repair, and basement mold remediation.

Waterproofing Specialties are certified, fully insured waterproofing professionals and our system designers and installers have been expertly trained.

We have the answer to your wet basement or crawlspace questions and we're more than happy to answer those questions for you.
