Basement Waterproofing

The Best Basement Waterproofing Company in Cecil County Since 1987

No one likes wet basements.

Yet even homes with solid foundations and no visible cracks on the basement walls can still get wet. Much of that is due to the fact, unlike homeowners in places like Utah or Arizona, those of us living in Maryland and Cecil County in particular, will always have humidity, groundwater, and often excessive rainwater.

And some of this moisture is going to make its way into your basement eventually if it hasn’t already.

This is because moisture in a basement can result from trapped, humid air, or groundwater wicking through concrete walls or floors, and even rainwater that gets deposited too close to your house.

So, what can you do about basement moisture and leaking?

While maintenance and upkeep are essential, ultimately, getting professional basement waterproofing from BWN can be the perfect solution for achieving and maintaining a dry basement.

Foundation Repair

Get the Best Foundation Repair Service in Cecil County

As homes get older, they usually increase in value, but they also increase in needed repairs.

Even though an older home can take on an inviting presence of a solid, well-established structure because of the lush lawns and matured trees and landscaping, they can also sag and settle. And it’s the settling of the foundation that is often the cause of damage in the form of cracks and fissures.

So, what causes that?

That’s a fair question and the answer often surprises many homeowners. More often than not, the cause of most foundation damage is the movement of soil beneath the foundation. And this phenomenon of soil movement is actually caused by water.

Now you might ask how does water in the soil damage a foundation?

One reason is that much of the earth that is packed around foundations as fill is a type known as unstable soil. This simply means that it is soil that is prone to repeatedly changing shape, which affects a foundation in opposite ways.

For example, dry soil conditions can cause soil shrinkage, which diminishes the support on a foundation. And wet soil conditions causes this same soil to expand, putting undo pressure foundation walls. So, while both of these soil conditions can eventually cause some damage to a foundation, when that soil repeats these extremes over time, a foundation can experience damage such as cracks and fractures in the concrete.

And the older a home becomes, the more like it is to experience foundation problems to some degree.

It’s impossible to say with certainly how long any given foundation will sustain its structural integrity. However, certain factors such as the type of fill dirt used around the house, the quality of construction, and the type of material used for the foundation all come into play.

The good news is that no matter when it’s finally time for foundation repair, Cecil County homeowners can rely on Basement Waterproofing Nationwide to take of it quickly, reliably, and affordably.

Sump Pump Repair

Sump Pump Replacement & Installation Done Right in Cecil County

In Cecil County, as in most areas throughout Maryland, basements are usually equipped with built-in sump pits and sump pumps. This is necessary since our basements are prone to water leaks, as we’ve already noted here previously.

So, when our basements happen to have water beginning to pool on the basement floor, that’s when our trusty sump pumps kick in.

Except that, eventually, our sump pump is no longer quite as trusty.

At Basement Waterproofing Nationwide, however, we can say with confidence, no worries! When you need sump pump repair, just call us. Cecil County homeowners have depended on BWN for sump pump repairs for over 30 years. And so can you!

Perhaps your home didn’t have a sump pump installed or it did, but it’s now so far gone that there’s no value in trying to repair it. Again, we can say “No worries!” For the best in professional sump pump installation, Cecil County residents can rely on Basement Waterproofing Nationwide to be their first choice.

While not the biggest, most populous, or even the wealthiest county in Maryland, Cecil County has a long history and significant heritage as an important shipping center, both within the colonies and abroad, until the American Revolution.

Although there are only about 37,000 households in Cecil County based on information from the U.S. Census Bureau, that still means that close to 10,000 of those are homes with basements according to real estate data.

And, as most Cecil County homeowners know all too well is that what every basement has in common is that they leak.

Which is why the pros at Basement Waterproofing Nationwide have been taking care of leaking basements for three and half decades. In fact, we’ve been waterproofing basements, fixing basement leaks, and repairing foundations in communities like those in Cecil County since 1987. To date we have 4,000 clients and $7 Million in basement sales in Cecil County.
