Professional Basement Waterproofing
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 imperative that you keep the area free of flooding. There are a number of areas that water can enter your home, because of this we offer a number of different waterproofing solutions and products to help keep the water under control. The most likely place where we find basement leaking is where there are cracks in the foundation walls. These are usually in the concrete walls or mortar joints. 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, transport, and remove water from your basement. If you have leaky 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 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 solutions you need to keep your home dry.
Your foundation is possibly one of the most important structural components of your home. It not only supports the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have got 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 walls. Other times, you will notice that the doors or windows will not open easily. You may also notice a problem where the basement walls have begun to bow inward. You may not think these problems are dangerous when you observe them, however, they are all indicators 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 issues stem from common issues and our experts are very good at noticing these problems. We can offer a repair solution designed for your particular problem to permanently stabilize the foundation. If the issue is a sloping foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to stop the sinking. Depending on how bad the damage 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 bowing, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide much neededsupport.
Professional Crawl Space Solutions
In the Centreville area, there are 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, the opposite is what usually 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. 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 benefit the overall air quality in your home.
Our Experts 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 done using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a heavy duty 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 proven crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
