Professional Basement Waterproofing
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 water and excess humidity. There are a number of ways that water can enter the basement, because of this we offer a number of different waterproofing solutions and products to help keep the water under control. The primary place where we find basement leaking is where there are cracks in the foundation walls. These are usually in the concrete or at mortar joints between blocks. It can also occur with floor cracks and at the cove joint where the foundation walls and floor meet.
Regardless of the issue you are having we have products that will transport and remove water from your basement. If you have leaky wall cracks, the first thing our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair solution installed to stop the crack growth and water leak. If water is entering at the cove joint or other areas we can install a custom waterproofing system to help remove the water. In some more extreme cases, we may recommend installing a sump pump system to help with the removal of water. Our experts have the basement waterproofing products you need to keep your home dry and safe.
Professional Foundation Repair
The foundation of your home is most likely one of the most important support structures of your home. Not only does it support the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have foundtion problems, normally they will show themselves as stair stepping cracks in blocks and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation or along the basement walls. In addition to this, 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 notice them, however, they are all indicative of a sinking or setteleing foundation that should be checked out by our team at American Basement Waterproofing, Crawl Space, & Mold control to determine if a repair needs to be installed.
Thankfully, many foundation problems stem from common issues and our experts are very good at noticing these problems. Our Team can offer a foundation repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently fix the foundation. If the issue is a sagging foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to level the foundation. Depending on the extent of the damage 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 notice bowed basement walls, depending on how much the wall is leaning, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide neededsupport.
Professional Crawl Space Repair
In the Annapolis area, there are a number homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For years they were created with open vents to the outside. These vents were created to help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, this is not what really happens, having these open 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 the growth of mold. If you have a crawl space, up to half of the air in your home enters through the crawl space, so having the space protected from the outside and controlling excess humidity will be better for the overall air quality in your home.
Our team has been encapsulating crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to seal them and control humidity. This is done using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a heavy duty line, sometimes accompanied by a sump pump 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 saggign floors. We can install a tested crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
