Basement Waterproofing

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 important that you keep the area dry. There are several ways that water can enter your home, because of this we offer several different repair products to help keep the water out of your home. The most likely place where we find 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.

Regardless of the issue you are having we have solutions that will collect and expel water from your basement. If you have foundation cracks, the first thing 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 custom 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 products you need to keep your home dry.

Foundation Repair

Foundation Repair

Your Homes foundation is most likely 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 issues, they can 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 will not open easily. You may also notice a problem where the foundation walls have begun to lean inward. 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 one of our experts to determine if a repair needs to be installed.

Thankfully, many foundation problems stem from common issues and our team is very good at noticing these issues. Our Experts can offer a repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently fix the foundation. If the issue is a sinking 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've noticed 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 Repair

In the Bowie area, there are a number homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For years crawl spaces were created with crawl space 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 crawl space 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 mold growth. If you have a crawl space, 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 increase the overall air quality in your home.

Our Experts has been encapsulating crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the best way to seal them and control high humidity. This is done using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a heavy duty 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. 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.
