WARNING: Identify Drainage Problems Before Problems Occur

Julian Construction Urges Homeowners to Watch for Signs of Drainage Problems

LOS ANGELES, CA: Julian Construction Inc., a foundation construction and foundation repair company in Southern California, is warning the public and urging homeowners to be on the look-out for signs of drainage problems, as a potential and probable threat to the foundation of a home. Contact a foundation repair specialist if you notice potential signs of drainage problems.

According to Julian Construction, there are a number of indicators of drainage problems extant in a home. Some of the major ones the company listed are:

  • Water pooling in a yard
  • Rainwater accumulating on a rooftop
  • Moisture seeping into a house
  • Foundation cracks

Signs of any of the above indicate drainage problems. In addition to water damage resultant from the drainage problem, Julian Construction advises that foundation damage may also occur. A couple of the causes the company cited were:

  • Expanding and contracting soil
  • Water penetration of the existing walls

The company urges homeowners to be on the look-out for these signs and take steps to handle any observed.

Julian de la Torre, founder of the company, stated: “In order to protect your home, you need to know about these problems. The homeowners who we’ve visited to help them fix these problems, the majority did not know any of the warning signs or know who to call if they did recognize something was wrong. The solution is to find a specialist who knows what he is looking for to inspect your home.”
