Professional Basement Waterproofing
Your basement is an important area in your home whether or not 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 basement, because of this we offer a variety of different repair solutions to help keep the water out of your basement. The primary 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 waterproofing systems that will remove water from your basement. If you have wall cracks, one of the solutions our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair product installed to stop the crack growth and water leak. If water is entering 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 dry and safe.
Professional Foundation Repair
The foundation of your home is most likely one of the most important areas of your home. It not only supports the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have got foundation issues, normally they will show themselves as stair stepping cracks in block foundations and horizontal cracks that run the length of the basement walls. Sometimes, you will notice that the doors will not open easily. You may also notice a problem where the basement walls have begun to bow inward. You may not think these issues are dangerous when you observe 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.
Thankfully, many foundation problems stem from similar issues and our team is very good at identifying these issues. Our Experts can offer a foundation repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently repair and stabilize the foundation. If the issue is a sagging foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to bring the home back to level. Depending on the extent of the damage 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 leaning, 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 Easton area, there are 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 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 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. 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 benefit 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 close them off and control high humidity. This is 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.
