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 important that you keep the area free of water and excess humidity. There are several areas 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 most likely 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 solutions that will collect and expel water from your basement. If you have leaky wall cracks, one of the first things 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 solutions you need to keep your home dry.

Foundation Repair

Your Homes 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 issues, they will normally 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. Other times, you will see that the doors or windows 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 issues are dangerous when you observe them, however, they are all indicative of a sinking or settling foundation that should be checked out by one of our experts to determine if a repair needs to be installed.

Our Team can offer a repair solution designed for your particular problem to permanently repair the foundation.

Crawl Space Solutions

In the College Park area, there are a number homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years crawl spaces were created with open 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 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 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 be better for the overall air quality in your home.

Our Experts has been encapsulating crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the best way to seal them and control mold. This is done 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. Moisture 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.
