Harford County, MD Waterproofing Contractor

Basement Systems USA is the local, family owned contractor in Harford for waterproofing, finishing, crawl space repair and mold removal. 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 Harford County

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 Harford County waterproofing systems come with life-time warranties. 

Basement Finishing & Remodeling in Harford County, 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 Harford County 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.

This customer contacted us due to the wet basement smell soon after he purchased the home. We had our inspector go out to evaluate the basement and he found hairline cracks in foundation walls where water was coming through. We solved this by installing WaterGuard around the perimeter to keep the basement dry and Carbon Armor to reinforce the wall. Afterwards we installed our CleanSpace Vapor barrier to prevent future wall seepage and leaks. The white poly surface also eliminates the need to paint basement walls, providing a bright and stain-resistant finish.

Job Stories From Harford County, MD
Waterproofing and Mold Remediation in Bel Air, MD

A customer had a nasty problem with their wet and moldy basement. We fixed the problem with our successful Spot Mold Treatment, removing all mold from the space. We then went further by installing the state of the art WaterGuard XL waterproofing system which captures water that leaks through the walls and floors of their home. Now, the customer has a dry, clean space with no worries of damp or moldy odors.

Basement Finishing in Bel Air, MD

When a homeowner needed a higher quality basement, we were there to help. After eliminating the mold in the basement, we installed our reliable Everlast basement windows and Rockwell window well to keep moisture and soil out. We installed our Wellduct and ThermalDry wall systems to prevent water damage by catching and sending any water to the drainage system. The SaniDry dehumidifier will also control the humidity and air quality in the basement so that there is no risk of moisture, mold or odors. The homeowner is now happy with a basement that can be used.

Finished Basement with Crawlspaces in Bel Air, Maryland

Before we finished this basement we had to deal with some problems first.  This basement had several crawlspaces that that had moisture and no insulation.  We installed CleanSpace barrier on the floor of the crawlspace to prevent vapor transmission.  We also insulated the walls and rim-joist of the crawlspaces but not with fiberglass insulation because that attracts mold and becomes ineffective over time as it absorbs moisture.  Instead we used Silverglow foam board.  We also installed a SaniDry Dehumidifier to keep the humidity at an acceptable low level.  

Then we used our TBF Everlast wall panel system to finish the basement and it came out great.  Not only does it look good, it comes with a 50-year guarantee against water damage and mold growth.  We also fixed the stairs and installed Thermal flooring that makes the basement floor look good and creates a warmer floor surface. The basement looked great and is now ready to use.

Beautiful, Bright Egress for Finished Basement

This job in Bel Air, MD needed an egress window for their finished basement.  The job required removal of bushes and drywall, but everything went smoothly.  The beautiful RockWell window well looks amazing and much better than the standard metal contractor grade wells that always rust and leak.  We also installed a drain in the bottom of the window well to prevent flooding. The basement is now bright, but more importantly, safe!

Fieldstone Foundation Waterproofed in Forest Hill, MD

This basement had field stone walls that were leaking everywhere.  Excavation and sealing from the outside was not an option, so an interior drainage system called WaterGuard was installed with a SuperSump system.  We also installed the CleanSpace vapour barrier on the walls so that the moisture could be controlled and drain down into the WaterGuard system. The result is a bone dry basement with a nationally backed, transferable warranty from Basement Systems USA Inc.

Bowing Walls, Mold and Foundation leaks Repaired in Joppa, MD

We we first saw the foundation walls of this home in Joppa, MD, we were immidiatly concerned.  The walls had a long horizontal crack in the middle and was bowing inward over 2".  There was also some shifting going on at the bottom.  In addition to the foundation wall failure, there was also a serios water seepaage problems and lots of mold on th eold insulation behind the paneling.  

We started with removing the paneling and the moldy insulation. Then we installed 14 GeoLock wall anchors with full interior plates to stabilize the foundation wall.   Next was the waterproofing system.  We installed WaterGuard along the interior wall to guarantee that there woul dno longer be seepage.  We also upgraded the sump pump with a SuperSump system.  The ThermalWall vapour was also installed to prevent moisture from escaping into the basement. 

The customer also wanted the paneling to be replaced, a new electric heater installed, and the drop ceiling repaired.  It was a big job but the foundaton is repaired and we no longer have water and mold issues.

Structural Problems Repaired in a Home in Havre De Grace, MD

This home had many problems.  The walls were bowing and needed reinforcing and the joist where sagging.  In addition, the stairwell was flooding over into the basement.  

First we installed GeoLock Wall Anchors to stabilized the foundation wall.  Then we installed SmartJacks to reinforce the joists.  Both products are made of galvanized steel so the will not rust or corrode.  They include a 25-year nationally backed, transferable, guarantee against failure.  

We also broke out the stairwell pad and installed a TrenchDrain System with a new concrete pad to prevent flooding.

Basement Waterproofed with TripleSafe in Abingdon, MD

This basement was particularly finished and had a water seepage problem.  The carpet and bottom of the drywall got wet and had to be removed.  

We then cut the floor and installed the WaterGuard drainage system along the perimeter walls.  WaterGuard is a patented system that has been installed all over the country and comes with a nationally backed, life time warranty.  The WaterGuard was connected to a TripleSafe Sump Systems that has the capacity to pump up to 6000 gallons per hour on AC power and can pump up to 12,000 gallons of water in one charge. 

After the waterproofing was completed, we also installed the SaniDry super dehumidifier, which is 7 to 10 times more powerful then your average store bought dehumidifier.  

The results is that the basement is protected from water seepage and high humidity.

I would like a rough estimate on crawlspace encapsulation -- vapor barrier, rigid foam insulation, and sealing the edges -- for our crawlspace. We aren't having any serious problems, but I know that ground moisture does enter the area through the concrete, necessitating a dehumidifier that runs frequently. I would like a quote so that I can begin preparing financially. Thanks.
