Structural Foundation Repair
The foundation of your home 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 got foundtion problems, they can show themselves as stair stepping cracks in bricks outside of your home and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation or along the basement walls. In addition to this, you will see that the doors or windows will not open easily. You may also see a problem where the basement walls have begun to press inward or bow. You may not think these problems are dangerous when you see 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 team is very good at identifying these problems. Our Experts can offer a repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently repair and stabilize the foundation. If the issue is a sagging foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to level the foundation. 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 Repair
In the Baltimore area, there are homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For 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 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.
American Basement Waterproofing, Crawl Space, & Mold Control 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. Water 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.
