Foundation Repair

Mid-Atlantic Foundation Repair

Chances are, if you’re reading this, you have noticed one or more foundation cracks. Or maybe you’ve noticed bowed basement walls. You may have noticed these cracks or bowed walls while trying to figure out why your basement is wet all the time. We’re glad you’re exploring foundation repair, because over time, these cracks can widen. That allows in more water, pests, and can threaten the structural integrity of your home

Value Dry Waterproofing performs foundation repair for homeowners and businesses throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. This includes Maryland, Virginia, Washington DC, and Delaware

For a permanent foundation repair, you will likely need basement waterproofing. You need to get rid of the cause of the problem to make the repair last. Otherwise, your foundation will just crack again under the hydrostatic pressure.

At Value Dry, we believe you deserve the benefits of a home that defends itself from water intrusion.

The first step in foundation repair is for our experts to perform an inspection at your home. Then we can tell you exactly what we need to do to restore and maintain the value of your property. We will leave you safe and dry, with greater peace of mind. Just call us at (888) 768-2583 or fill out the contact form and our office will contact you to schedule a free inspection.

During normal rainfall, the soil around your home absorbs the water easily. This groundwater then follows natural waterways underground back to creeks, rivers, and streams. However, during prolonged periods of rain, the soil around our homes becomes saturated.

But during heavy rains and snowmelt, water builds up, and looks for a place to go. It will take the path of least resistance. Frequently, that means the water seeps through foundation seams, up into cinder block walls, cracked cement walls and floors, window wells, stairwell areaways, and more.

This is why most basement and crawl space water issues are related directly to the foundation of your home. For a permanent foundation repair, you will likely need basement waterproofing. You need to get rid of the cause of the problem to make the repair last. Otherwise, your foundation will just crack again under the hydrostatic pressure. At Value Dry, we believe you deserve the benefits of a home that defends itself from water intrusion.

The most common reason for foundation cracks is the stress from hydrostatic pressure. This is how groundwater interacts with the soil surrounding your home and, in turn, the foundation. The more saturated the ground is, the higher the pressure. The force from this hydrostatic pressure can be strong enough to cause structural damage to the foundation.

The expansion and contraction of the ground outside during winter’s freezing and thawing can also stress the foundation. Some foundation cracks are structurally benign due to normal settling of the home after construction. But more serious cracks pose a threat to your foundation. It is important to get your foundation inspected and repaired properly to avoid the potential for further damage.

Our team of foundation repair and basement waterproofing specialists can assess and solve your foundation problems. Whether your foundation is made of cinder block, poured concrete, brick, or stone, our foundation crack repair services

  • And other solutions designed specifically for your situation
