Professional 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 necessary that you keep the area dry and that any excess humidity and flooding are controlled. There are a variety of ways that water can enter your basement, because of this we offer a variety of different repair systems to help keep the water under control. The most likely 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.
Regardless of the issue you are having we have waterproofing systems that will collect and expel water from your basement. If you have wall 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 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 systems you need to keep your home dry.
The foundation of your home 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 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. Other times, you will notice that the 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 see them, however, they are all indicative of a sinking or settling foundation that should be checked out by a professional to determine if a repair needs to be installed.
Often Times, many foundation issues stem from common 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 repair the foundation. If the issue is a sinking foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to stop the sinking. Depending on how bad the damage is 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 bowing, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide much 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 many years they 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 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. 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 increase 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 most efficient 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.
