Professional Basement Waterproofing
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 free of flooding. There are a number of ways that water can enter your home, because of this we offer a number of different repair solutions 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.
Regardless of the issue you are having we have solutions that will 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 product 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 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. Our experts have the basement waterproofing products you need to keep your home dry.
Professional Foundation Repair
Your Homes foundation is possibly one of the most important support structures of your home. It not only supports the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have foundation problems, they can 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 basement walls have begun to lean inward. You may not think these problems are dangerous when you notice them, however, they are all indicative of a sinking or settling foundation that should be checked out by a professional to determine if a repair needs to be installed.
Luckily, many foundation issues stem from similar issues and our team is very good at identifying these problems. Our Experts can offer a repair solution designed for your particular problem to permanently repair the foundation. If the issue is a sloping foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to stop the sinking. Depending on the extent of the damage 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 bowing, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide neededsupport.
Professional Crawl Space Solutions
In the Capitol Heights area, there are a number homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For years crawl spaces were created with open 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 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 mold growth. 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 benefit 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 most efficient way to close them off 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. Water in your crawl space can also cause sagging floors. We can install a tested crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
