Wall cracks

Foundations are not supposed to crack…but they often do. The most common types of wall cracks are identified as vertical, horizontal, step, and displaced breakages. These fractures are serious as your one piece foundation is now separated into two pieces. Wall cracks are never included in the architectural plans for your home. We have effective and permanent repairs that stop the water and prevent the wall crack from further movement.

Sink Holes Around My Foundation

When you see sink holes forming on the outside of your foundation this is evidence of moving soil. Oftentimes, sink holes are pathways through the soil that allow dirt and mud to access interior waterproofing systems. This dirt/mud quickly compromises waterproofing systems with blocks and clogs leading to greater water penetration.

Solutions

SOIL STABILIZATION
Soil stabilization involves injection of grouts into sink holes to stop this movement of soil and prevent future erosion, thereby protecting your waterproofing systems and drains.

House Foundations and Repair

What is a Home Foundation?

The foundation of a house is the load-bearing portion of the structure, which is typically built below ground level. Foundations are designed for many important purposes:

  • Stabilizes the home’s structure above ground.
  • Protects the home from frost heaving below ground.
  • Keeps water out of the home’s living space.
  • Provides a safe environment for the home’s furnace, electrical and plumbing utilities.
  • Creates opportunities for additional living spaces for the home.

While all foundations perform these functions, each type of foundation has their unique advantages and disadvantages.

What are the Different Types of Foundations?

  • Full Basements
  • Half Basements
  • Crawlspaces

The most common materials used to construct these foundations include concrete blocks, solid poured concrete, field stone and red bricks. There are modular basement foundation designs available for new construction basements.

Basement Foundations in Maryland and Delaware

In the Mid-Atlantic region, and in particular, the eastern half of Maryland and northern Delaware, a vast number of homes are built on basement foundations.

According to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB),
“Homes in colder areas, where building codes normally require foundations to be built below the frost line, are predominately constructed with full or partial basements.”
As recently as 2020, an NAHB survey found almost 70% of new homes in our region are built with full or partial basements.

Benefits of Basement Foundations

A basement anchors the house to the ground while extending the foundation below the frost line. This is important for maintaining the structural integrity of the foundation over time. In addition, a basement foundation offers homeowners several advantages and benefits:

Additional functional square footage

The additional square-footage gained, at a lower cost per square foot than the rest of the home, can be used for storage and, if necessary, shelter during extreme weather events.

Seasonal living space

Creating a finished basement can provide a spacious and energy-efficient living space that, while having limited natural light, is relatively warm in winter months and cool in the summer.

Secure and protected access for utility work such as plumbing and Heating systems

Carrying out maintenance or repairs on your home’s utilities is quicker and easier for technicians if they can stand up. Unlike crawl space or slab foundations, basements make this possible.

However, basements are also prone to damage such as cracking, leaking, and flooding. Water causes more damage to foundations than perhaps any other reason. The best solution for most foundation issues is to install foundation waterproofing to prevent water and moisture from entering the basement.
