Professional Basement Waterproofing

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 important that you keep the area dry and free from flooding. There are several ways that water can enter the basement, because of this we offer several different repair products to help keep the water under control. The main place where we find basement water leaks is where there are cracks in the foundation walls. These are usually in the concrete or at mortar joints between blocks. 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 collect, transport, and remove 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 stop the crack growth and water leak. If water is entering 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 safe.

Structural Foundation Repair

Foundation Repair

Your foundation is possibly one of the most important structural components of your home. It not only supports the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have 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 walls. Sometimes, you will notice that the doors or windows 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 notice 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.

Often Times, many foundation problems stem from similar issues and our team is very good at identifying these issues. We can offer a repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently fix the foundation. If the problem is a sloping foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to bring the home back to level. 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 notice bowed basement walls, depending on how much the wall is buckling, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide neededsupport.

Professional Crawl Space Solutions

In the Stevensville area, there are a number homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years they 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, these vents don't really work that way, 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. 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.

Maryland Basement and Crawl Space Waterproofing has been providing crawl space encapsulation since we opened our doors, and we know the best way to close them off and control humidity. This is best achieved using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a heavy duty 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. Moisture 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.
