Basement Waterproofing

Basement Waterproofing

Your basement is an important area in your home if you are using it for storage or have it finished as a living space for your family. This means it is imperative that you keep the area free of water and excess humidity. There are a variety of areas that water can enter your home, because of this we offer a variety of different repair systems to help keep the water under control. The primary 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 products that will collect, transport, 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.

Foundation Repair

Foundation Repair

Your Homes foundation is possibly 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, they will normally show themselves as stair stepping cracks in bricks outside of your home and horizontal cracks that run the length of the basement walls. In addition to this, you will see that the windows will not open easily. You may also see a problem where the basement walls have begun to press inward or bow. You may not think these problems 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 common issues and our experts are very good at identifying these problems. Our Experts can offer a repair solution designed for your particular problem to permanently stabilize the foundation. If the problem is a sagging foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to level the foundation. Depending on how bad the damage 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've noticed 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 neededsupport.

Crawl Space Repair

In the Crofton area, there are many homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For years they 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 storms. This water tends to stay in your crawl space resulting in the humidity level staying too high causing the growth of mold. If you have a crawl space, up to half of the air in 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 team has been providing crawl space encapsulation since we opened our doors, and we know the best way to close them off and control high humidity. This is best 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 proven crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
