Elkridge's Basement Waterproofing Contractor

Basement Systems USA is the local, family owned contractor in Elkridge for waterproofing, finishing, and crawl space repair. With over 75 years combined experience and a full-time, professional staff we are ready to serve you and improve your home. 

Basement Waterproofing & Crawl Space Repair in Elkridge

Flooding, water seepage or even high humidity can quickly result in mold growth and water damage in your basement or crawl space. We prevent this from happening by installing an interior drainage system in the basement that is connected to a high volume sump pump. Any water that makes it to the basement is collected and pumped out of the home without you even noticing. 

Just like the basement, in the crawl space we similarly place a sump pump system and dehumidifier to prevent water issues. The entire area is encapsulated with vapor barrier to prevent mold growth. Our crawl space system comes with a 25-year warranty. 

We Provide:
  • Basement Waterproofing
  • Crawl Space Encapsulation
  • Exclusive, Patented Products
  • Humidity Control
  • Structural Repair
  • Basement Egress Windows
You Receive:
  • Permanently Dry Basement
  • Clean Protected Crawlspace
  • Protection against Mold
  • Improved Home Value

If the walls of the basement or bowing inwards we install wall anchors or braces to straighten the walls. If the floor above the crawl space is sagging we install SmartJack support jacks to raise the floor back to a level position. Our Elkridge waterproofing systems come with lifetime warranties. 

Basement Finishing & Remodeling in Elkridge, MD

Waterproofing your basement prevents outside water from coming in but what if a pipe bursts or the water heater leaks inside the home. A newly finished basement done by your average contractor will mold and rot if there is an internal leak. You'll have to tear out your new basement! We fix this issue.

Our Products Include :
  • Waterproof, washable, insulated walls           
  • Mold-Resistant, No-Sag suspended ceiling
  • Modular carpet, tile & faux wood flooring
  • Basement egress windows

  • Energy-efficient, double-paned basement windows
  • Attractive Sunhouse basement window wells
  • French, bifold, louvre & six-paneled steel doors

Unlike the average Elkridge contractor we use completely inorganic, waterproof materials. Even if the basement floods your walls and floors will not be damaged by the water. These waterproof products are patented and are built to create an attractive finished basement that lasts a lifetime.

Here's a customer that with heavy rains his exising drain wasn't enough to stop water from coming in under his walkout basement door. This issue would cause his basement to flood to his old sump pump was. We installed a TrenchDrain outside the door with some WaterGuard XL as well as our Z Triplesafe 3. He so satisfied with our system, he decided to replace the existing flooring with our Elite Plank- Walnut flooring.

Job Stories From Elkridge, MD
Basement Waterproofing in Elkridge, MD

Recently, a homeowner in Elkridge, MD, reached out to us with a common but frustrating issue: their unfinished basement was taking on water through the walls every time it rained. Anticipating the worsening of these leaks and the potential damage to their home, they turned to Basement Systems USA for a solution. Upon inspection, it was evident that the basement required a reliable waterproofing system to mitigate this water intrusion. Our Specialist recommended a combination of our WaterGuard interior drainage system and the SuperSump pump system, known for their effectiveness in keeping basements dry and safe. The installation process was straightforward and primarily non-invasive, much to the homeowner's relief. 

Helical Pier Installation in Elkridge, MD

When a homeowner in Elkridge, MD noticed their chimney pulling away from the house—a clear sign that something was amiss with their foundation—they knew it was time to call in some experts. That's where we came into play. At Basement Systems USA, we pride ourselves on diagnosing and solving even the most complex foundation issues. Upon receiving the call, our skilled Customer Care team quickly scheduled a home inspection. Our System Design Specialist performed a thorough inspection of the property, pinpointing the underlying problem. The east side of the home, despite previous attempts to reparge and seal the chimney, and fill a telltale crack in the basement wall, was showing distressing signs of foundational movement. The mantle had bent, the hearth had shifted further from the wood floor, and the troublesome crack had reappeared, indicating significant structural concerns. Our recommended solution? The installation of a Helical Pier system. Designed for deep foundation stabilization, the helical piers were the perfect fit for the job, able to correct the foundational settling that was pulling the chimney and wall away from the main structure. Plus, this method offered minimal landscape disruption and a speedy installation process compared to traditional foundation repair methods.

Finish basement
Project Location: Elkridge, MD
My basement is in need of expert repair. There are cracks and water comes in at multiple spots. There is a lot of dirt and debris in 50% of the basement that needs to be cleared out. Then the foundation walls and footers are in need of repair behind the debris and in the other portion of the basement as well. The steps have a short threshold making it impossible to walk into the basement without ducking. I am hoping to replace the steps and floor to accommodate the entrance better. Please help me, I am a father to an 8 year old girl who lives in this house and with working full time and these issues I'm afraid I'm past the point of dealing with it myself.

Basement complete
Project Location: Elkridge, MD
Finished basement flooded this past weekend while I was away on vacation. The cause was the drain at the bottom of the stairs for the walk out basement door was clogged with dirt. I have unclogged the drain, removed the laminate wood flooring, vapor barrier under the floor, damaged molding and drywall. There is wood rot at the door and inside and outside, and know there is moisture on some of the framing. I would like an estimate for repairs and prevention.

I have a sump pump, but it is old & no battery backup. I have a basement walkout to a flight of stairs with a drain that leads to the sump. Sometimes in heavy rain the water does drain fast enough into the sump from the walkout area drain.
