Your basement is an important area in your home regardless of whether you are using it for storage or have it finished as a living space for your family. This means it is important that you keep the area free of flooding. There are a number of ways that water can enter your home, because of this we offer a number of different waterproofing systems to help keep the water out of your home. The primary place where we find basement water leaks is where there are cracks in the foundation walls. These are usually in the concrete walls or mortar joints. It can also occur with floor cracks and at the cove joint where the foundation walls and floor meet.

Structural Foundation Repair
Your foundation is possibly one of the most important support structures of your home. It not only supports the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have foundation problems, they will normally show themselves as stair stepping cracks in block foundations and horizontal cracks that run the length of the basement walls. Other times, you will notice that the doors or windows will not open easily. You may also notice a problem where the basement walls have begun to lean inward. You may not think these problems are dangerous when you see them, however, they are all indicative of a sinking or settling foundation that should be checked out by a professional to determine if a repair needs to be installed.
Thankfully, many foundation problems stem from common issues and our team is very good at noticing these problems. Our Experts can offer a foundation repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently stabilize the foundation. If the issue is a sloping foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to level the foundation. Depending on how bad it is and the location of the damage we can use either helical piers or push piers. Both are very strong and can stabilize your foundation. If you have got bowed basement walls, depending on how much the wall is bowing, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide much neededsupport.
Crawl Space Repair
In the Annapolis area, there are many homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years crawl spaces were created with crawl space vents to the outside. These vents were designed help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, this is not what really happens, having these crawl space vents allows water to get in during storms. This water tends to stay in your crawl space resulting in the humidity level staying too high causing mold growth. With homes that have crawl spaces, up to half of the air entering your home enters through the crawl space, so having the space protected from the outside and controlling excess humidity will increase the overall air quality in your home.
Our Experts has been encapsulating crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to seal them and control mold. This is done using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a waterproof line, sometimes accompanied by other waterproofing systems to keep water out of your crawl space. Encapsulation will stop bugs and animals from getting into your crawl space as well allowing you to use it for storage. Moisture in your crawl space can also cause sagging floors. We can install a tested crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
