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 important that you keep the area dry. There are a number of ways that water can enter your home, because of this we offer a number of different repair products to help keep the water under control. The main 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. 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 waterproofing systems that will remove water from your basement. If you have leaky wall cracks, the first thing 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 systems you need to keep your home dry and safe.
Professional Foundation Repair
The foundation of your home is most likely one of the most important structural components of your home. Not only does it support 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 notice that the doors will not open easily. You may also notice a problem where the foundation walls have begun to press inward or bow. You may not think these problems are dangerous when you notice 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.
Thankfully, many foundation issues stem from similar issues and our team is very good at identifying these problems. We can offer a foundation repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently stabilize the foundation. If the problem is a sloping foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to level the foundation. 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 buckling, 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 Claiborne area, there are a number 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 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 heavy rain. This water tends to stay in your crawl space resulting in the humidity level staying too high causing the growth of mold. If you have a crawl space, 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 increase the overall air quality in your home.
Our team has been waterproofing crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to seal them and control high humidity. 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 crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
