Basement Waterproofing

Recognizing a water problem in your basement can help us resolve the issue before it causes serious damage to your home.

Oneil Concrete Construction offers permanent resolutions to any moisture, mold or flooding issue. Our multiple sump pumps, battery backups and backup alarms are the most reliable models available, and when installed, will ensure that your basement stays dry and moisture-free during a heavy storm.

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.
