Your basement is an important area in your home whether you are using it for storage or have it finished as a living space for your family. This means it is necessary that you keep the area dry. There are a number of ways that water can enter your basement, because of this we offer a number of different waterproofing systems to help keep the water out of your basement. The most likely place where we find 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 solutions that will collect and expel water from your basement. If you have foundation cracks, the first thing our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair solution 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.
Your Homes foundation is possibly one of the most important areas of your home. Not only does it support the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have foundation problems, they will normally show themselves as stair stepping cracks in blocks and horizontal cracks that run the length of the basement walls. In addition to this, 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 lean inward. 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 similar issues and our experts are very good at noticing these problems. Our Experts can offer a foundation repair solution designed for your particular problem to permanently stabilize the foundation. If the issue is a sinking 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 much neededsupport.
Crawl Space Repair
In the Stevensville area, there are a number 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 intended 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 rain and snow storms. This water tends to stay in your crawl space resulting in the humidity level staying too high causing the growth of mold. With homes that have crawl spaces, 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 encapsulating crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the best way to seal them and control high humidity. This is best achieved using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a waterproof 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.
