There are several areas that water can enter your basement, because of this we offer several different repair products to help keep the water out of your basement. The primary place where we find water leaks is where there are cracks in the foundation walls. These are usually in the concrete walls or mortar joints. It can also occur with floor cracks and at the cove joint where the foundation walls and floor meet.

If you have foundtion issues, normally they will show themselves as stair stepping cracks in block foundations and horizontal cracks that run the length of the basement walls. In addition to this, you will notice that the doors or windows will not open easily. You may also notice a problem where the basement walls have begun to bow inward.

Professional Crawl Space Solutions
In the Church Hill area, there are many homes that were constructed 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, these vents don't really work that way, 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 the growth of mold. With homes that have crawl spaces, up to half of the air in 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 most efficient way to close them off and control humidity. This is done 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 crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
