Your basement is an important area in your home if 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 dry and free from flooding. There are a number of ways that water can enter the basement, because of this we offer a number of different repair solutions and products to help keep the water out of your basement. The primary place where we find basement leaking 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.
Whatever the issue you are having we have waterproofing systems that will collect and expel 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 coming in at the cove joint or other areas we can install a custom drainage 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.
Professional Foundation Repair
Your foundation is possibly one of the most important areas of your home. It not only supports the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have got foundation issues, they will normally show themselves as stair stepping cracks in blocks and horizontal cracks that run the length of the basement walls. In addition to this, you will see that the doors will not open easily. You may also see a problem where the foundation walls have begun to press inward or bow. You may not think these issues are dangerous when you notice them, however, they are all indicators 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 experts are very good at noticing these issues. We can offer a repair solution designed for your particular problem to permanently repair the foundation. If the issue is a sagging foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to bring the home back to level. Depending on how bad the damage is and where it is 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 bowing, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide neededsupport.
Crawl Space Solutions
In the Annapolis area, there are many 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, these vents don't really work that way, 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 the growth of mold and mildew. 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 benefit the overall air quality in your home.
Maryland Basement and Crawl Space Waterproofing has been waterproofing crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to close them off and control high humidity. This is achieved using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a sealing 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. Water in your crawl space can also cause sagging floors. We can install a proven crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
