Professional Basement Waterproofing
Your basement is an important area in your home whethyer or not you are using it for storage or have it finished as a living space for your family. This means it is important that you keep the area dry. There are a number of areas that water can enter the basement, because of this we offer a number of different waterproofing solutions to help keep the water under control. The main 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 waterproofing systems that will collect and remove water from your basement. If you have wall cracks, one of the first things our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair solution installed to control the crack growth and water leak. If water is entering 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 solutions you need to keep your home safe.
Your foundation is most likely 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 got foundtion issues, they will normally show themselves as stair stepping cracks in block foundations and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation 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 bow inward. You may not think these issues are dangerous when you see 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.
Thankfully, many foundation problems stem from similar issues and our experts are very good at noticing these issues. Our Experts can offer a repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently repair the foundation. If the issue is a sagging 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 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 Annapolis area, there are homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years crawl spaces were created with open vents to the outside. These vents were created to 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 and mildew. If you have a crawl space, 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.
American Basement Waterproofing, Crawl Space, & Mold Control has been encapsulating crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to seal them and control high humidity. This is done using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a waterproof 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. Water in your crawl space can also cause saggign floors. We can install a proven crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
