Your Homes 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 foundation problems, they can show themselves as stair stepping cracks in block foundations and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation walls. Other times, you will notice that the windows will not open easily. You may also notice a problem where the basement walls have begun to bow inward.

Crawl Space Solutions
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 designed 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 storms. This water tends to stay in your crawl space resulting in the humidity level staying too high causing the growth of mold and mildew. If you have a crawl space, 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 increase the overall air quality in your home.
Our Experts has been waterproofing crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the best way to seal them and control humidity. This is done using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a sealing 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 sagging floors. We can install a crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
