Professional Basement Waterproofing

Basement Waterproofing

Your basement is an important area in your home if 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 free of water and excess humidity. There are a number of areas that water can enter the basement, because of this we offer a number of different waterproofing solutions and products to help keep the water out of your basement. The most likely 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.

Whatever the issue you are having we have solutions that will transport 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 stop 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. Our experts have the basement waterproofing systems you need to keep your home dry.

Structural Foundation Repair

Foundation Repair

The foundation of your home 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 foundtion issues, they can show themselves as stair stepping cracks in block foundations and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation or along the basement walls. Sometimes, you will notice that the doors 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 indicative of a sinking or setteleing foundation that should be checked out by a professional to determine if a repair needs to be installed.

Often Times, many foundation issues stem from common issues and our experts are very good at identifying these issues. Our Team can offer a foundation repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently repair the foundation. If the problem is a sagging foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to stop the sinking. 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 bowing, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide neededsupport.

Professional Crawl Space Repair

Crawl Space Repair

In the Capitol Heights area, there are many homes that were constructed with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years crawl spaces were created with crawl space vents to the outside. These vents were designed help keep fresh air moving through the space and to keep it dry. Unfortunately, these vents don't really work that way, having these crawl space 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 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 increase the overall air quality in your home.

Our team 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 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. Moisture 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.
