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 imperative that you keep the area free of flooding. There are a variety of areas that water can enter your basement, because of this we offer a variety of different repair systems to help keep the water under control. The primary place where we find water leaks is where there are cracks in the foundation walls. These are usually in the concrete or at mortar joints between blocks. 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.

Professional Crawl Space Solutions
In the Crownsville area, there are many homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For years they were created with open vents to the outside. These vents were intented 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 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. 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 be better for the overall air quality in your home.
American Basement Waterproofing, Crawl Space, & Mold Control has been providing crawl space encapsulation since we opened our doors, and we know the best way to close them off and control high humidity. This is best achieved using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a sealing 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.
