If you have foundtion problems, they will normally 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 see that the doors or windows will not open easily. You may also see a problem where the basement walls have begun to lean inward.

Crawl Space Repair
In the Davidsonville area, there are 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 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 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 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.
Our Experts has been encapsulating crawl spaces since we opened our doors, and we know the best way to close them off and control humidity. This is done using a process known as encapsulation which is the installation of a waterproof 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 crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
