Basement Waterproofing

Basement Waterproofing

Your basement is an important area in your home 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 flooding. There are several ways that water can enter your basement, because of this we offer several different waterproofing systems to help keep the water out of your home. The most likely place where we find water leaks 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.

Whatever the issue you are having we have solutions that will collect, transport, and remove water from your basement. If you have foundation cracks, one of the solutions our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair solution installed to control the crack growth and water leak. If water is entering at the cove joint or other areas we can install a specialized waterproofing 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.

Foundation Repair

Foundation Repair

The foundation of your home is most likely 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 foundation issues, they will normally show themselves as stair stepping cracks in blocks and horizontal cracks that run the length of 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 bow inward. You may not think these issues are dangerous when you notice them, however, they are all indicators of a sinking or settling foundation that should be checked out by a professional to determine if a repair needs to be installed.

Luckily, many foundation problems stem from similar issues and our team is very good at noticing these issues. 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 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 neededsupport.

Crawl Space Repair

In the College Park area, there are a number homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years they were created with open 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 open 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 mold growth. If you have a crawl space, 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 waterproofing crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to close them off 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.
