Foundation Repair in Baltimore, MD

Baltimore, MD, is a historic city with a mix of old and new homes. Whether structures were built within the last decade or a century ago, they all have the potential to experience foundation damage. This is largely because of Baltimore’s above-average rainfall and diverse loamy soil. You’ll know your foundation is in trouble if you start to notice various wall cracks, unevenness, and other movement. 

Foundation damage is a serious issue that shouldn’t be ignored or repaired on your own. The best way to repair your foundation and ensure its longevity is with professional assistance from your local experts at JES Foundation Repair. We have the experience, expertise, and best permanent solutions to protect your Baltimore home for years to come.

Foundation Problem Signs in Baltimore

Foundation problems can be complex, but there are signs you can look for inside and outside your Baltimore home to get an idea of your foundation’s condition. These include drywall nail pops, drywall cracks, cracking basement walls, bowing basement walls, uneven floors, and sticking windows and doors throughout your home’s interior. Outside your house, keep an eye out for cracked bricks, cracking and leaning chimneys, and sinking, uneven foundations. When in doubt, contact our experts for a free foundation inspection. 

Causes of Foundation Damage in Baltimore

Like many things, foundations can break down over time or may have been built without proper materials or attention. Any number of factors can affect the foundation of your Baltimore home, but the common cause behind most forms of foundation damage lies beneath your home. The soil underneath and surrounding your house needs to provide a stable base for the foundation. Baltimore’s loam soil with varied silty, clay, and gravelly properties can become unstable, especially when contending with the area’s 42 inches of annual rainfall.

Foundation Repair Solutions in Baltimore

Foundation issues can vary greatly depending on the unique structure of your Baltimore home and the extent of any damage that has occurred. In order to address these issues, it’s necessary to implement a repair solution that’s fully customizable to meet your home’s specific needs. At JES, we’re proud to provide a range of versatile repair systems, each designed to target specific problems. Here’s a deeper look into these solutions:

1. Piering Systems

  • Helical Piers: These are screw-like supports that are driven into the ground to stabilize and potentially lift sinking or settling foundations. They are often used in situations where the soil condition requires a deeper foundation support.
  • Push Piers: Push piers are driven into the ground until they reach a stable soil layer or bedrock. They’re used to lift and stabilize a foundation that’s sinking due to weak or shifting soil.
  • Slab Piers: Slab piers are similar to other piers but are specifically designed for homes with a concrete slab foundation. They can help lift and stabilize a slab that is sinking or cracking.

2. Wall Repair Systems

  • Wall Anchors: These are installed to stabilize and straighten basement walls that are bowing or cracking due to pressure from the surrounding soil.
  • Wall Repair Beams: Steel beams are placed against the wall to prevent further bowing or cracking. They provide additional structural support to your foundation walls.
  • Carbon Fiber Supports: Carbon fiber supports are strong and lightweight materials that are adhered to a foundation wall to stop bowing and cracking. They are a more modern and less invasive option for wall reinforcement.

3. Crawl Space Supports

If your home has a crawl space with sagging or bouncing floors above, crawl space supports can be installed. These are adjustable steel posts that can be placed in the crawl space to provide extra support to the above floor, helping to restore it to a level position.

Each of these solutions has its unique advantages and is designed to address specific foundation issues. The choice of repair method will depend on your home’s individual circumstances, the type of foundation you have, and the extent and type of damage present. Our team at JES will guide you in choosing the most appropriate solution for your home’s unique needs.

First and foremost, I NEVER write reviews; however, I found it necessary in this case because the two young men who came to perform the work were true professionals. Foreman Michael Kuffour and Co-foreman Alan Brown arrived on time! They professionally introduced themselves. I felt immediately at ease because once I directed them to the area that needed repair, they quickly communicated operation issues and recommended changes so that the work to be performed was accurately understood in layperson's terms. They utilized precision measuring instruments and fixtures to measure the dimensions of finished work pieces: downspouts and sump pump operations. They were extremely conscientious and ensured that work complied with all relevant codes, standards, and job specifications. They followed procedures to maintain the work environment neat and orderly. Mike, the Project Supervisor, arrived. Mike was knowledgeable and provided information on further work and any materials and equipment needed. He communicated ways to gain efficiencies and more effective installation methods in collaboration with us (the customer), which I greatly appreciated so that we could meet the goals and work towards a final resolution to our water problem. He inspected the Encapsulation work under the crawl space also. Once the meeting was over, I felt secure that the remainder of the result would be proficiently performed and up to code. I recommend JES to anyone, for they provide A-1 work. The guys that they sent were tens (10) in every sense. For this, I give them five stars ***** . Thank You

Had the pleasure of dealing with Jason Gamse today and he did an excellent job of not only educating us in regards to the work his company does but also assisting us in the best process to get what we needed done to our home. He was the third person that came out and the saying “save the best for last” definitely applied to him. After this job is done we will come back for any future work needed for our home and definitely ask for him personally.

4 star due to scheduling issues I had and having to call to get the work completed.Joe Crossfield/David Gaskins/Larry and crew were great.Joe was the sales guy that came out to quote us for the work. He was very polite and was honest about what needed to be done. He didn’t upsell us on any add ons and helped us save a little bit of money by offering alternatives for the encapsulation project.Larry and crew: they came and did the work and did a great job. Cleaned up after themselves and completed the work. Not sure if it was the day or the overwhelming work the crew had, but I felt like I was rushed when I asked questions and felt like an inconvenience when I did asked questions. So I didn’t appreciate that.David Gaskins: was polite and explained how to clean the dehumidifier and all that. Explained what the RH% should be in the crawlspace and showed me how to work the dehumidifier. I originally called because I wanted my encapsulated crawlspace to be at 40% RH but it wasn’t getting there. He explained to me that it is possible for the machine to get down that low but explained the issue that I may have with my foundation and wood beam. He was very honest and did not rush me when I was asking the questions.Cons:-After paying the deposit, I had to give the office a call to schedule my appointment. I would think that they would call me to schedule and get it on the books, but that did not happen.-the scheduler scheduled the encapsulation, but not the electricians subcontractor. You would think that they should schedule the electrician first before the work so that the work is totally complete once the crew comes. I ended up calling the office, getting the phone number to the electricians, and calling the electricians myself to get something scheduled since the office could only email the subcontractor to be put on the books.

Foreman David Gaskins came to our house after our basement was waterproofed. Some water came in from a heavy rain and and a repair we were promised was not done. David inspected the waterproofing work and found what needed to be done to be sure water would not come in again. This has been a very stressful time for us but David has been wonderful and gone above and beyond to keep in constant touch with us and coming up with a plan on how to make the corrections. We are just so thankful that he is the one that came to our house to look at what the problem was. Your company is lucky to have him.
