Professional Foundation Repair
Your Homes foundation is possibly one of the most important support structures of your home. It not only supports the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have foundation problems, normally they will show themselves as stair stepping cracks in block foundations and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation or along 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 press inward or bow. You may not think these problems are dangerous when you see 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 issues stem from similar issues and our team is very good at identifying these problems. Our Team can offer a repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently repair the foundation. If the problem is a sagging foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to stop the sinking. Depending on the extent of the damage and where it is we can use either helical piers or push piers. Both are very strong and can stabilize your foundation. If you've noticed 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 constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For 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, the opposite is what usually happens, having these open 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. 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 waterproofing crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the best way to close them off and control mold. This is best achieved 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 tested crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
