Your Homes 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 problems, they will normally show themselves as stair stepping cracks in block foundations and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation walls. In addition to this, you will see that the 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 observe them, however, they are all indicators of a sinking or settling foundation that should be checked out by our team at Maryland Basement and Crawl Space Waterproofing to determine if a repair needs to be installed.
Luckily, many foundation issues stem from common issues and our experts are very good at noticing these problems. We can offer a repair solution designed for your particular problem to permanently stabilize the foundation. If the issue is a sloping foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to stop the sinking. Depending on how bad it is 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 leaning, 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 crawl spaces were created with crawl space vents to the outside. These vents were created to help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, this is not what really happens, having these crawl space 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. With homes that have crawl spaces, 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.
Our team has been encapsulating crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to close them off and control humidity. This is done using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a heavy duty 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. Moisture 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.
