Basement Waterproofing

The Best Basement Waterproofing Company in Howard County Since 1987

Regardless of how dry and compact the soil around your foundation is, basements are never completely free of moisture of some kind.

And, while your basement may not have leaks now, and you’ve never seen any hairline cracks or fractures in the floor or walls, it may only be a matter of time. That’s because the Maryland climate is conducive to moisture.

For example, moisture can appear in your basement as the result of trapped, humid air, or from wicking groundwater that seeps through the floor or walls. Even poorly placed or maintained downspouts can lead to leaks and water seepage into your basement.

And it’s not just water damage or mild flooding that is a concern – unhealthy mold and mildew growth can be another result of basement moisture.

So, why is mold a bad thing?

Along with being unsightly and bad-smelling, molds produce allergens and other respiratory irritants. can cause allergic reactions when touched or inhaled. This is especially true for sensitive people or those with respiratory issues. The problem is that a perfect environments for mold and mildew spores to grow is in a damp or wet basement.

Foundation Repair

Get the Best Foundation Repair Service in Howard County

Houses age much like people except, instead of wrinkles, they develop cracks in their foundations along with gaps between joints. In fact, an aging home is subject to a myriad of things that need to be repaired or replaced. “Replacing” a foundation, however, is rarely a realistic project

As homes get older their foundations can “settle” or, in some cases, shift a bit. This can cause damage to both the exterior and interior of a home. In fact, along with peeling paint, aging roofs, sagging fences, and leaking gutters and downspouts, the foundations and basements of older homes often need maintenance and repair, as well.

And why is that?

Typically, the movement of soil beneath the foundation over time can lead to minor structural damage in a foundation. We talk about houses and foundations “settling” but this dynamic can actually be caused by soil movement due to water.

A fair question to ask at this point might be, “How does water in the soil damage my foundation?

Expansive soil, for example, can repeatedly change shape, which has different effects on a home’s foundation. While dry conditions can cause the soil to shrink, reducing support for your foundation, wet conditions causes this soil to expand, which then puts added pressure against your foundation.

Although either of these soil conditions can be damaging to a foundation, when the soil cycles through these extremes, the foundation can suffer visible damage such as cracks and fractures.

The bad news is that older homes are especially prone to foundation problems as a result. No one can say how long foundations or basement walls will retain their integrity. But part of the equation – in addition to the type of soil around the house – is the home’s quality of construction and the materials were used for the foundation.

The good news is that when they need foundation repair, Howard County homeowners can count on BWN to provide them with expert and affordable foundation repair.
