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 flooding. There are several ways that water can enter your home, because of this we offer several different waterproofing solutions to help keep the water out of your home. The main 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. 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 products that will collect, transport, and remove water from your basement. If you have wall cracks, the first thing our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair product installed to control the crack growth and water leak. If water is coming in at the cove joint or other areas we can install a specialized 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 and safe.

Foundation Repair

Foundation Repair

The foundation of your home 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 foundation issues, they can show themselves as stair stepping cracks in block foundations and horizontal cracks that run the length of the basement walls. In addition to this, you will notice that the doors will not open easily. You may also notice a problem where the foundation walls have begun to lean inward. You may not think these issues are dangerous when you see 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.

Luckily, many foundation issues stem from common issues and our experts are very good at noticing these issues. Our Team can offer a repair solution designed for your particular problem to permanently repair and stabilize the foundation. If the issue is a sloping foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to stop the sinking. Depending on how bad it 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 much neededsupport.

Crawl Space Solutions

In the Laurel area, there are a number homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years crawl spaces were created with 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 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 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 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 best way to close them off and control high humidity. This is done using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a sealing 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.
