This means it is important that you keep the area free of water and excess humidity. There are a number of areas that water can enter your basement, because of this we offer a number of different repair systems to help keep the water under control. The primary 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.

Professional Foundation Repair
The foundation of your home is possibly one of the most important areas of your home. It not only supports the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have foundation problems, they can show themselves as stair stepping cracks in block foundations and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation 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 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.
Often Times, many foundation problems stem from common 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 fix the foundation. If the problem is a sagging 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 neededsupport.
Crawl Space Repair
In the College Park area, there are homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years crawl spaces 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, these vents don't really work that way, 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 and mildew. 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 increase the overall air quality in your home.
Our Experts has been providing crawl space encapsulation since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to close them off and control humidity. This is best achieved using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a waterproof 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.
