Professional Basement Waterproofing
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 and that any excess humidity and flooding are controlled. There are a number of ways that water can enter your home, because of this we offer a number of different repair products 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 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 waterproofing systems that will collect, transport, and remove water from your basement. If you have foundaiton cracks, the first thing 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 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 solutions you need to keep your home dry and safe.
Structural Foundation Repair
The foundation of your home 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 got foundtion 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. In addition to this, you will see that the doors or windows will not open easily. You may also see a problem where the basement walls have begun to lean inward. You may not think these issues are dangerous when you observe them, however, they are all indicators of a sinking or setteleing foundation that should be checked out by a professional to determine if a repair needs to be installed.
Thankfully, many foundation issues stem from common issues and our experts are very good at noticing these issues. Our Experts can offer a foundation repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently repair the foundation. If the problem is a sinking foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to level the foundation. Depending on how bad it 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 have got bowed basement walls, depending on how much the wall is buckeling, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide much neededsupport.
Professional 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 vents to the outside. These vents were intented help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, this is not what really happens, having these 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 mold growth. 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.
American Basement Waterproofing, Crawl Space, & Mold Control has been waterproofing crawl spaces 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. Water in your crawl space can also cause saggign floors. We can install a crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
