Professional Basement Waterproofing
Your basement is an important area in your home regardless of whether 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 a number of areas that water can enter your basement, because of this we offer a number of different waterproofing solutions and products to help keep the water under control. The main place where we find basement water leaks is where there are cracks in the foundation walls. These are usually in the mortar joints between blocks and cracks in your concrete wall. It can also occur with floor cracks and at the cove joint where the foundation walls and floor meet.
Whatever the issue you are having we have waterproofing systems that will collect and expell water from your basement. If you have foundaiton cracks, the first thing our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair solution installed to control the crack growth and water leak. If water is entering at the cove joint or other areas we can install a specialized drainage 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 solutions you need to keep your home safe.

The foundation of your home 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 foundtion issues, they can show themselves as stair stepping cracks in blocks and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation walls. Sometimes, you will notice that the doors or windows will not open easily. You may also notice a problem where the basement walls have begun to bow inward. You may not think these issues are dangerous when you observe them, however, they are all indicators of a sinking or setteleing foundation that should be checked out by a professional to determine if a repair needs to be installed.

We can offer a foundation repair solution designed for your particular problem to permanently fix the foundation.

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 notice bowed basement walls, depending on how much the wall is buckeling, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide much neededsupport.
Professional Crawl Space Repair
In the Bowie area, there are homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For years they were created with open 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 open vents allows water to get in during rain and snow 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. 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 be better for the overall air quality in your home.
Our Experts has been waterproofing crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to close them off and control mold. This is done using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a sealing 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 saggign floors. We can install a proven crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
