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 necessary that you keep the area dry and free from flooding. There are a variety of areas that water can enter your basement, because of this we offer a variety of different waterproofing solutions and products to help keep the water under control. 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.
Whatever 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 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 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.

Structural Foundation Repair
Your foundation is most likely one of the most important areas of your home. Not only does it support the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have foundation issues, normally they will 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 issues are dangerous when you see them, however, they are all indicators of a sinking or settling foundation that should be checked out by a professional to determine if a repair needs to be installed.
Thankfully, many foundation problems stem from similar issues and our team is very good at identifying these issues. Our Team can offer a foundation repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently stabilize the foundation. If the problem is a sinking foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to stop the sinking. Depending on how bad it is and where it is 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 buckling, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide neededsupport.
Crawl Space Repair
In the Capitol Heights area, there are many 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 intended 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 heavy rain. 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 entering 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.
Maryland Basement and Crawl Space Waterproofing has been providing crawl space encapsulation since we opened our doors, and we know the best way to seal them and control humidity. This is best 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 patented crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
