What’s Causing my Basement Moisture?

If you’re trying to cure a wet or musty basement, you’re probably wondering if it’s possible to dry out a basement simply by sealing the walls?

Often, it is, but to choose the right option, you need to determine if the moisture is coming from outside your foundation, or if it’s high interior humidity condensing on the cooler walls of your basement.

Oneil Concrete Construction can help determine the root cause of your basement moisture problems, and suggest the best solutions for your situation.

Warning Signs of Foundation or Slab Failure

Everything is better when it’s built on a solid foundation: an education, a marriage, a career. But when we’re talking about your home, it’s not just an analogy.

Does your house suffer from cracked walls, doors that won’t close, or bulging floors? These are symptoms of foundation distress. Over half of all homes built on expansive soils suffer from foundation distress. Differential movement is caused by differences in soil moisture. Loss or gain of soil moisture can cause serious shrinkage or swelling.

The first clues you’ll see as your foundation heaves or settles are cracks, bulges or bows, or other damage:

Exterior:

  • Separation around garage door, windows and/or walls
  • Wall displacement
  • Cracked blocks or bricks
  • Broken and/or cracked foundation

Interior:

  • Sticking doors and windows
  • Cracks in drywall
  • Cracks in tile or wood plank flooring

As your foundation begins to suffer this damage, it can no longer support the house framing as designed, hence the other resulting deterioration.

If you’ve noticed these signs, it’s time to call Oneil Concrete Construction.
