The Best Basement Waterproofing Company in Carroll County Since 1987

The professionals at Basement Waterproofing Nationwide have been taking care of homeowners in Carroll County and communities like Eldersburg and Westminster for over three decades. And by offering the residents of Carroll County expert basement waterproofing and foundation repair, we’ve become their “company of choice” for basement work since 1987. To date, BWN has 2,500 clients in Carroll County, with more than $7 Million in basement work completed.

In regions like the Mid-Atlantic states, basements are prone to moisture leaks and susceptible to water damage. This is largely due to the fact that the foundation’s concrete walls, and the soil compacted alongside of them, easily absorb moisture.

Of course, it doesn’t help that a climate like the one we enjoy here in Maryland tends to keep our soil relatively damp most of the year.

And because it is mostly compacted fill, the soil around your foundation is often much more porous than undisturbed, natural soil. Which simply means that groundwater can seep down through the soil and right up against the foundation walls of a home’s basement.

Inevitably, it’s this water that can, and often does, seep into your basement.

Leaky Basements, Pooling Water, and Nasty Mold Growths

Most commonly, foundation and basement water seepage happens at the joints where the basement walls meet the floor. Of course, there are other, less common, causes of water making its way into a basement. Natural events such as local flooding and even excessive rainwater can move into the space between the fill soil and the foundation walls.

Unfortunately, plumbing leaks in the house can mean that water finds its way into your basement, as well. Of course, minor water leakage is often not a concern with a properly installed and functioning basement sump pump. But a sump malfunction can lead to flooding.

In addition to the possible damage to household items you might be storing in your basement, and basement that is continually damp can result in mold and mildew growth. This creates a very real and potentially serious health hazard for those living in the home.

The reason for this is that molds and mildew contain allergens and other respiratory irritants that are easily picked up by touching or inhaling them. And it is these particles that cause allergic reactions and other breathing issues, which can be especially dangerous for small children and those with other respiratory problems.

The good news for Carroll County residents is that there is a reliable solution to all of these water-related issues and that is basement waterproofing.

By treating your basement and foundation with a professionally installed waterproofing solution, Carroll County basements can be free of basement moisture, protected from any flooding, and safe from mold growth – not to mention possible damage to foundations.

Foundation Repair

Get the Best Foundation Repair Service in Carroll County

It’s not all uncommon for older homes to develop “unsettling” quirks such as doors that stick in their doorjambs, walls that are out of square, and even cracks in ceilings or walls.

These issues often result from minor shifting or movement of the foundations. That movement is often referred to as “foundation settling” and if too much settlement happens serious foundational problems could result.

And this movement can still cause damage to the foundation of a house even when it is subtle and even unnoticeable to the eye.

Why do foundations settle? A quite common reason is soil shifting caused by expansive soil.

Because of the presence of groundwater, this type of soil will repeatedly change shape over time, and this affects a foundation in several ways. For example, as fill soil next to a foundation wall dries it will begin to shrink. This often results in the soil pulling away from the foundation, which then reduces the support against the foundation.

On the other hand, this same soil can expand when saturated with excessive groundwater. This soil expansion then creates a great deal of pressure against the foundation walls. Either one of these soil movements can potentially cause damage to a foundation over time. However, a repeated cycle of soil shrinkage and expansion, year after year, can easily result in foundation damage that commonly shows up as cracks and fractures.

The good news is that Eldersburg and other Carroll County homeowners can count on BWN for professional and reliable foundation repair.

Sump Pump Repair

Sump Pump Replacement & Installation Done Right in Carroll County

Like many other homeowners throughout the state of Maryland and nearby states, those of us in Carroll County likely have a built-in sump pit with a sump pump installed in the basement.

And, since almost every basement throughout the county is prone to experiencing some degree of water seepage, leaks, and even flooding, these trusty sump pumps can be relied on to take care of the water on your basement floor.

Except when they’re no longer so trusty.

Unfortunately, basement sump pumps don’t last forever. Statistically, seven to ten years is the average sump pump lifespan. The problem is that much of the time we aren’t aware that our old pump has already pumped its last drop of basement water until it’s too late.

And if the pump isn’t working, we risk having water damage in our basement and to anything we’ve been storing down there.

But there’s good news for old sump pumps!

Carroll County homeowners can simply call BWN when they need sump pump repair or replacement. That’s because Basement Waterproofing Nationwide is the very best and most reliable choice for sump pump repair and installation in Carroll County.

When You Need Basement Waterproofing and Foundation Repair in Carroll County

Unlike many other counties in the state, Carroll County has two cities and six incorporated towns. It is, however, home to almost 30 unincorporated communities, a few of which spill over into Howard County and Baltimore County.

Carroll County is close to the city of Baltimore with Eldersburg is considered a suburb and “bedroom community” of that city. To the north, the historic town and National Military Park of Gettysburg lies just across the state border of Pennsylvania, a mere 24 miles away from the county seat of Westminster.

As is the case with many other Maryland counties, the area is largely rural and full of history. Many of the homes in the county have been around for decades and the ravages of time and the elements have taken a toll.
This reveals itself, of course, with the condition of many of the basements and foundations of homes throughout the county.

While the total county population is less than 200,000 people, the number of households is close to 60,000 with many of these being single-family homes. And, statistically speaking, close to a third of those houses have basements.
And why is that significant?

Because, like basements everywhere throughout the state of Maryland, they are prone to leaks. And the older the home, the more likely there is – or will be – water leaking in those basements and foundations.
