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 important that you keep the area dry and free from flooding. There are a variety of areas that water can enter your home, because of this we offer a variety of different waterproofing solutions and products to help keep the water under control. 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.
Regardless of the issue you are having we have waterproofing systems that will collect and remove water from your basement. If you have wall cracks, one of the first things 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 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 systems you need to keep your home safe.
Professional Foundation Repair
Your foundation is possibly 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 got foundation problems, they will normally show themselves as stair stepping cracks in block foundations and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation walls. Other times, you will see that the windows will not open easily. You may also see a problem where the basement walls have begun to lean inward. You may not think these problems are dangerous when you observe them, however, they are all indicators 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.
Often Times, many foundation problems stem from similar issues and our team is very good at noticing these problems. Our Experts can offer a repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently repair the foundation. If the issue is a sagging foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to level the foundation. Depending on how bad it is and where it is we can use either helical piers or push piers. Both are very strong and can stabilize your foundation. If you notice 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 much neededsupport.
Professional Crawl Space Solutions
In the Cordova area, there are many homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For 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 and mildew. With homes that have crawl spaces, 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 providing crawl space encapsulation 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 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.
