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 free of flooding. There are a number of ways that water can enter your basement, because of this we offer a number of different repair products to help keep the water under control. The main place where we find basement leaking 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 and expel 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 solution installed to control the crack growth and water leak. If water is entering at the cove joint or other areas we can install a specialized 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.
Structural Foundation Repair
Your foundation is most likely 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 bricks outside of your home and horizontal cracks that run the length of the basement walls. Other times, you will notice that the windows will not open easily. You may also notice a problem where the foundation walls have begun to press inward or bow. You may not think these problems 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 issues stem from similar issues and our team is very good at noticing these problems. We can offer a repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently repair the foundation. If the issue is a sloping foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to level the foundation. Depending on how bad the damage 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 buckling, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide neededsupport.
Crawl Space Repair
In the Stevensville area, there are a number homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years crawl spaces were created with open vents to the outside. These vents were created to 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. 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 increase the overall air quality in your home.
Maryland Basement and Crawl Space Waterproofing has been waterproofing crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to close them off and control humidity. This is done 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. 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.
