Your foundation is possibly one of the most important structural components of your home. Not only does it support the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have got foundtion problems, normally they will show themselves as stair stepping cracks in block foundations 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 foundation walls have begun to bow inward. You may not think these problems are dangerous when you see them, however, they are all indicators 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.
Luckly, many foundation issues stem from common issues and our team is very good at noticing these problems. We can offer a foundation repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently repair the foundation. If the problem is a sloping foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to stop the sinking. Depending on the extent of the damage and where it is we can use either helical piers or push piers. Both are very strong and can stabilize your foundation. If you've noticed 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 Solutions
In the Annapolis area, there are homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years they were created with open vents to the outside. These vents were intented help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, the opposite is what usually happens, having these open vents allows water to get in during heavy rain. This water tends to stay in your crawl space resulting in the humidity level staying too high causing mold growth. 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 benefit the overall air quality in your home.
Our Experts has been providing crawl space encapsulation since we opened our doors, and we know the best way to seal them and control humidity. This is best achieved 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. Water in your crawl space can also cause saggign floors. We can install a proven crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
