If you have got foundtion issues, they can show themselves as stair stepping cracks in block foundations and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation 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 press inward or bow.

Crawl Space Solutions
In the Crownsville area, there are 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, this is not what really happens, 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. If you have a crawl space, 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 benefit 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 humidity. This is done using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a heavy duty 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 patented crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
