Your basement is an important area in your home whether you are using it for storage or have it finished as a living space for your family. This means it is necessary that you keep the area dry. There are a variety of ways that water can enter the basement, because of this we offer a variety of different repair solutions and products to help keep the water out of your basement. The main place where we find water leaks is where there are cracks in the foundation walls. These are usually in the mortar joints between blocks and cracks in your concrete wall. 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 remove water from your basement. If you have leaky wall cracks, one of the solutions our experts will recommend is to have a wall crack repair solution 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 solutions you need to keep your home safe.
The foundation of your home is possibly one of the most important structural components of your home. It not only supports the home itself but also the basement walls. If you have got foundation issues, they can show themselves as stair stepping cracks in blocks and horizontal cracks that run the length of the foundation walls. In addition to this, you will see that the doors will not open easily. You may also see a problem where the foundation walls have begun to lean inward. You may not think these issues are dangerous when you see 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.
Often Times, many foundation issues stem from common issues and our experts are very good at identifying these issues. Our Experts can offer a foundation repair solution customized for your particular problem to permanently repair the foundation. If the problem is a sagging foundation, we can install a system of foundation piers to bring the home back to level. Depending on the extent of the damage 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 Millersville area, there are a number homes that were built with crawl space areas instead of basements. For many years crawl spaces were created with 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 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 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 team 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 done 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. 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.
