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 foundtion issues, they can 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 doors will not open easily. You may also notice a problem where the basement walls have begun to lean inward. You may not think these issues are dangerous when you notice them, however, they are all indicators of a sinking or setteleing foundation that should be checked out by our team at American Basement Waterproofing, Crawl Space, & Mold control to determine if a repair needs to be installed.
Luckly, many foundation problems stem from similar issues and our experts are very good at identifying these issues.

Depending on the extent of the damage 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've noticed 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 neededsupport.
Professional Crawl Space Repair
In the Accokeek area, there are many homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years they were created with crawl space 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 crawl space 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 mold growth. With homes that have crawl spaces, 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.
American Basement Waterproofing, Crawl Space, & Mold Control has been encapsulating crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the best way to close them off and control high humidity. This is 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 saggign floors. We can install a crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
