Your basement is an important area in your home whether or not 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 dry. There are a variety of areas that water can enter your home, because of this we offer a variety of different waterproofing solutions and products to help keep the water under control. The primary place where we find basement 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.
Whatever the issue you are having we have solutions that will collect, transport, and remove water from your basement. If you have wall cracks, one of the first things 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 custom waterproofing 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 safe.
Your Homes foundation is possibly one of the most important support structures of your home. It not only supports the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have foundation problems, they can show themselves as stair stepping cracks in blocks and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation or along the basement walls. Other times, you will see that the windows will not open easily. You may also see a problem where the foundation walls have begun to lean inward. You may not think these problems are dangerous when you observe them, however, they are all indicative of a sinking or settling foundation that should be checked out by one of our experts to determine if a repair needs to be installed.
Thankfully, many foundation issues stem from common issues and our experts are very good at noticing these problems. Our Experts can offer a foundation repair solution designed for your particular problem to permanently repair the foundation. If the issue is a sloping foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to level the foundation. Depending on how bad it is and the location of the damage we can use either helical piers or push piers. Both are very strong and can stabilize your foundation. If you’ve noticed bowed basement walls, depending on how much the wall is leaning, we can install foundation wall anchors to pull the walls back to their original location and provide neededsupport.
In the Edgewater area, there are a number homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years crawl spaces were created with crawl space vents to the outside. These vents were created to 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 rain and snow 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 humidity. This is achieved 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 patented crawl space support system to stop sagging floors and support your home.
