Your Shield Against Wet Basements, Mold, and Rotting Crawlspaces Since 1958

When the rainy seasons start getting bad, flooding can be a nasty surprise and the last thing you’d want to find in your basement. But that’s not the only thing that can happen to your basement or your crawlspaces—water can do a whole lot of things to your home that you may or may not notice. Oftentimes, these big house disasters occur because of existing issues that were not detected and fixed in time. Luckily, there’s ’58 Foundations to help the people of Northern Virginia and the DC area, whether it’s foundation repair, mold removal, crawlspace encapsulating, or basement waterproofing that you require. We’ve been in the industry since 1958. With our decades of experience and expertise, we can help make sure your crawlspaces, basements, floors, and foundations are kept safe and dry for years to come!

’58 Foundations prides itself on the great relationships we’ve built with our Northern Virginia and DC customers for over 60 years. The secret ingredients? Our quality products and our honest service. We’re so confident about how well our products work that we happily offer our lifetime warranty.

We aim to make your experience as stress-free as possible. We’ll always offer a free inspection along with a zero-obligation price quote. You can also rest easy knowing that if we can’t fix your issue, you’ll get your money back!

At ’58 Foundations, we do more than just serve the people of Northern VA and DC for their foundations, basements, and crawlspaces.

Made up by Maryland, Northern Virginia, a county of West Virginia, and the Washington DC area, the DMV region includes our nation’s capital and makes for one of the largest metro areas in our country. But living here in the DMV also means taking on flash floods from heavy rains inland as well as flooding from tropical storms and hurricanes. For ’58 Foundations, we’ve been a local dealership in the DMV area for over 60 years, servicing homes and businesses from the western end of the NOVA region all the way to the bay shores of Maryland. Whether you need repairs for the foundation of a single-story home or waterproofing for the basement of a business with a building as large as General Dynamics’ Reston headquarters or Maryland’s massive Arundel Mills mall, ’58 Foundations will be there to protect your foundations, basements, crawlspaces, and more!

From Washington DC itself to cities and communities like Arlington, Wolf Trap, and Alexandria, ’58 Foundations is here to help ensure that your home remains a safe and healthy place to be. We offer a huge list of services from foundation repair and basement waterproofing to sump pump installation and crawlspace encapsulating.

10/10. Very clear. On time. Nice personnel.

-Steve M, Bethesda, MD

I was pleased with the response I received when I called for information. An appointment was scheduled with a representative. Extremely knowledgeable gentleman. My problem was a leaky basement and my problem was resolved within days. The team of men were polite, worked quickly, protected my possessions and floors, and cleaned up before they left. I would definitely recommend...a five star company.

-Bonnie G, Alexandria, VA

Quick response time, excellent personal customer service.

9/10. Well, nobody's perfect! I know because my wife told me so. Seriously, everything was great with the install. Will see over time if it really does the job it is designed to do. I suspect it will or I wouldn't have bought it, but I need some time to erase all doubts.

-Mike E, Bethesda, MD

Professional and on time. Good follow up and reminder calls and emails.

-Jayson S, Bethesda, MD 20817

-Mike O, Fairfax, VA

I was impressed with my very first phone call! Extremely professional, very knowledgeable, rapid response to my phone calls and efficient emails. The gentleman who did my estimate was on time to the second and knew exactly what he was doing. I trusted him immediately! Again, fantastic emails that kept me informed. Every who answered the phone was nice and welcoming. On the day of service the men were on time, friendly, polite, nice to my dogs, introduced themselves, shook my hand, and extremely respectful of my home. They covered my hardwood floors and helped me move the heavy washer and dryer. They never complained about the 105 degree heat, always smiled, and never stopped working. They had promised they would finish the job the second day and did not stop until it was done. After the job was finished they cleaned up everything! Amazing! I was extremely impressed with everyone I met or talked to from the company. I will recommend the company to all my friends and clients! Bravo! Bravo!

Crawlspace Repair

Typically, when crawlspaces are built, there isn’t much to hold back the moisture that rises from the earth below. The same can be said from the mold and pests that can arise from that moisture rich soil or standing water that may be pooling. When you put it all together, a crawlspace can become a rich environment for structural issues for your home as wood starts to rot and mold begins to spread. That in turn can lead to potential dangers and health hazards for you and your loved ones.

’58 Foundations offers a range of crawlspace repair solutions that can help turn your crawlspace into a dry, healthy, and usable space. With our crawlspace experts, we can provide services such as crawlspace encapsulation, crawlspace sump installation, and more. Read further to see our areas of expertise in crawlspaces!

Foundation Repair

Thanks to our foundations, our homes and commercial buildings have the support they need to stand tall, stay dry, and remain structurally sound. But nothing can truly stop Mother Nature and the passage of time—eventually your foundation will begin to develop cracks as it faces the stress of hydrostatic pressure and continual wearing. It may even begin to warp, bulge, or bow as a result. None of these foundation issues should be ignored. Fortunately, we’re the experts when it comes to foundation repair!

For over 60 years, ’58 Foundations has been helping people throughout the Northern Virginia region, from Washington DC to Bethesda of Maryland and Montclair of Virginia. Whether your foundation is suffering from settlement, leaking cracks, or buckling floors, our foundation experts will have the tools and expertise to make your home safe for years to come.

Mold Repair

Whether it’s a wet basement or a soggy crawlspace, these moist and wet areas can introduce health hazards to your home. While they can draw certain pests, more alarmingly they also become the breeding grounds for dangerous mold to grow! Bad molds, such as black mold, can create mycotoxins that can lead to a variety of health issues. For people with respiratory issues like asthma, or even people with sensitive skin, these molds can be incredibly harmful. Fortunately, our mold removal services are the perfect remedy to keep these dangers out of your home!

At ’58 Foundations, we take the dangers of mold seriously. Whether you live in Washington DC or in a Virginia community in Prince William county, you can count on our mold experts to be there for all your mold testing and mold removal needs.
