This basement had a bowing wall, causing cracking and separation of the block. We installed the PowerBrace wall stabilization system to permanently stabilize this home's foundation wall. It comes with a 25-year warranty against further bowing, tipping or shearing. In addition, this system has the ability to be tightened periodically over time, putting reverse pressure on the bowing wall which helps to straighten it.  We also installed ThermalWall vapor barrier to keep moisture out and the warm air in.

In this basement, the bottom of the moldy paneling was removed so that we could install WaterGuard and do mold remediation with Moldx2.  After the repairs were made, we installed the inorganic TBF Everlast wall system which is guaranteed for 50 years against Mold or water damage.

Joppa's Basement Waterproofing Contractor

Basement Systems USA is the local, family owned contractor in Joppa 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 Joppa

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 Joppa waterproofing systems come with lifetime warranties. 

Basement Finishing & Remodeling in Joppa, 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 Joppa 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.

Job Stories From Joppa, MD
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.

Vicinity of Singer RD in Joppa
The rear wall of the basement has a crack about halfway up. The crack is approximately 1/4" "thick" and runs the length of the wall. The wall also appears to be being "pushed in" and is not level. I'd like to have someone take a look at it and recommend how to fix or at least stabilize it.
