Basement Waterproofing

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 imperative 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 basement, because of this we offer a number of different waterproofing systems to help keep the water out of your home. The primary 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 solutions that will collect and remove water from your basement. If you have wall cracks, one of the solutions our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair product installed to control 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.

Crawl Space Solutions

Crawl Space Repair

In the Baltimore area, there are homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years crawl spaces were created with open vents to the outside. These vents were designed help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, the opposite is what usually happens, having these open 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. 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.

Our Experts has been providing crawl space encapsulation since we opened our doors, and we know the most efficient way to seal them and control high humidity. This is achieved using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a heavy duty 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 tested crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
