Your basement is an important area in your home whether or not 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 several areas that water can enter your home, because of this we offer several different waterproofing solutions to help keep the water under control. The primary 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.

Professional 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 got foundation issues, normally they will show themselves as stair stepping cracks in block foundations and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation walls. Sometimes, you will see that the windows 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 indicative of a sinking or settling foundation that should be checked out by our team at Maryland Basement and Crawl Space Waterproofing to determine if a repair needs to be installed.
Luckily, many foundation problems stem from similar issues and our experts are very good at noticing these issues. We can offer a 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 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 much neededsupport.
Crawl Space Solutions
In the Centreville area, there are many 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, this is not what really happens, having these crawl space vents allows water to get in during 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. 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 close them off and control high humidity. This is achieved using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a waterproof 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. 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.
