Structural Foundation Repair
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 foundation problems, they will normally show themselves as stair stepping cracks in bricks outside of your home and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation or along the basement walls. In addition to this, you will see that the doors will not open easily. You may also see a problem where the foundation walls have begun to press inward or bow. You may not think these problems 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.
Often Times, many foundation problems stem from common issues and our experts are very good at noticing these problems. Our Team can offer a foundation repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently repair the foundation. If the issue is a sagging foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to level the foundation. 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 buckling, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide neededsupport.
Crawl Space Solutions
In the Bozman area, there are homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years they were created with open vents to the outside. These vents were intended help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, this is not what really happens, having these open 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 in 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 encapsulating crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to seal them and control mold. This is best achieved using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a waterproof 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 patented crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
