Professional Basement Waterproofing
Your basement is an important area in your home whether you are using it for storage or have it finished as a living space for your family. This means it is necessary that you keep the area free of water and excess humidity. There are a variety of ways that water can enter the basement, because of this we offer a variety of different waterproofing products to help keep the water out of your basement. The most likely place where we find water leaks 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 solutions that will collect and expel water from your basement. If you have wall cracks, one of the first things 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 specialized 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 systems you need to keep your home safe.
The foundation of your home is possibly one of the most important areas of your home. Not only does it support the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have foundation issues, they can show themselves as stair stepping cracks in bricks outside of your home and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation 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 issues are dangerous when you observe 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.
Luckily, many foundation problems stem from similar issues and our team is very good at noticing these issues. Our Experts can offer a repair solution designed for your particular problem to permanently fix the foundation. If the problem is a sagging foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to stop the sinking. 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 have got bowed basement walls, depending on how much the wall is buckling, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide neededsupport.
Professional Crawl Space Repair
In the Baltimore area, there are homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For years they were created with vents to the outside. These vents were designed help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, these vents don't really work that way, having these 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. With homes that have crawl spaces, 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.
Our Experts has been encapsulating 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 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 sagging floors. We can install a patented crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
