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 imperative that you keep the area free of water and excess humidity. There are several areas that water can enter your home, because of this we offer several different repair solutions to help keep the water out of your basement. The main place where we find water leaks 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.
Regardless of the issue you are having we have products that will collect, transport, and remove water from your basement. If you have wall cracks, one of the solutions our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair product installed to control 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 dry.
Your foundation is possibly one of the most important structural components of your home. It not only supports the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have foundation issues, they will normally show themselves as stair stepping cracks in blocks and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation or along the basement walls. Other times, 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 press inward or bow. You may not think these issues are dangerous when you see them, however, they are all indicative of a sinking or settling foundation that should be checked out by a professional to determine if a repair needs to be installed.
Often Times, many foundation issues stem from common 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 repair and stabilize the foundation. If the problem is a sagging foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to level the foundation. 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 notice 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 much neededsupport.
Crawl Space Solutions
In the Beltsville area, there are a number homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For years they were created with 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 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. 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.
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 humidity. This is achieved 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.
