Professional Basement Waterproofing
Your basement is an important area in your home regardless of whether 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 water and excess humidity. There are several ways that water can enter your home, because of this we offer several different repair products to help keep the water out of your basement. The main place where we find basement water leaks is where there are cracks in the foundation walls. These are usually in the concrete or at mortar joints between blocks. 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 collect, transport, and remove water from your basement. If you have wall cracks, the first thing our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair solution installed to stop the crack growth and water leak. If water is coming in 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 products you need to keep your home safe.
The foundation of your home 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, normally they will show themselves as stair stepping cracks in block foundations and horizontal cracks that run the length of the basement walls. Other times, you will see that the doors 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 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.
Thankfully, many foundation issues stem from common issues and our experts are very good at identifying these problems. We can offer a foundation repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently fix the foundation. If the problem is a sinking foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to bring the home back to level. 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 have got bowed basement walls, depending on how much the wall is leaning, 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 Clinton area, there are homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years crawl spaces were created with vents to the outside. These vents were created to help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, this is not what really happens, having these 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 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 be better for the overall air quality in your home.
Maryland Basement and Crawl Space Waterproofing 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 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.
