Professional Foundation Repair
Your foundation is most likely one of the most important support structures of your home. Not only does it support the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have got foundation problems, they will normally show themselves as stair stepping cracks in blocks and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation or along the basement walls. Other times, you will notice that the doors will not open easily. You may also notice a problem where the basement walls have begun to lean inward. You may not think these problems are dangerous when you observe 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.
Often Times, many foundation issues stem from common issues and our experts are very good at noticing these problems. We can offer a foundation repair solution designed 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 bring the home back to level. 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'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 Solutions
In the Cheltenham area, there are many homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years they were created with crawl space vents to the outside. These vents were created to 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 rain and snow storms. This water tends to stay in your crawl space resulting in the humidity level staying too high causing the growth of mold. 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 be better for the overall air quality in your home.
Our team has been encapsulating crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the best way to seal them and control humidity. This is 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.
