Professional Basement Waterproofing
Your basement is an important area in your home regardless of 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 variety of ways that water can enter your basement, because of this we offer a variety of different waterproofing products to help keep the water out of your basement. 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, transport, 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 stop the crack growth and water leak. If water is entering at the cove joint or other areas we can install a custom 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 products you need to keep your home dry and safe.

Your Homes foundation is most likely one of the most important areas of your home. It not only supports the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have foundtion problems, 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 windows will not open easily. You may also see a problem where the foundation walls have begun to lean inward. You may not think these problems are dangerous when you notice them, however, they are all indicative 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.

Our Team can offer a repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently repair the foundation. If the issue is a sloping foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to stop the sinking. Depending on how bad it is 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 leaning, 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 Annapolis area, there are homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For years they were created with crawl space vents to the outside. These vents were created to 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 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. 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 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 seal them and control mold. This is best achieved using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a sealing 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 proven crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
