Home Foundations Will Be Affected By Droughts as Soil Moisture Drops

LOS ANGELES, CA: Julian Construction, Inc., (http://julianconstruction.com/) a foundation repair specialist company in Southern California, recently issued a warning to homeowners that the 2014 California droughts will affect the foundations of many homes in California. The extreme droughts will affect the soil of many homes’ foundations. Homeowners are advised to be on the watch for indications of foundation problems, and arrange a foundation inspection by a qualified inspector at the first sign of trouble.

Mark Cowin, director of the state Department of Water Resources, stated: “The time has come to protect drinking water and wisely divide the little water left in the state’s reservoirs among cities, farms and nature. We’re not in a developing crisis, this is a current crisis. Everyone will get less water this year.”

Shawn Kyles, chief home inspector of Julian Construction, stated: “Unfortunately, California is currently experiencing one of the worst droughts on record. The situation is so severe, Governor Jerry Brown recently declared a drought emergency. The lack of rain will cause the moisture content in soil throughout the state to decrease. As the drought continues, homeowners may find themselves with new and unexpected foundation issues.”

Julian Construction strongly recommends that at the first sign of abnormality in a home’s foundation, the homeowner schedule a foundation inspection. For a list of common indications of foundation problems, read more at: http://julianconstruction.com/new-year-foundation-checklist/

Julian De La Torre, founder of Julian Construction, stated: “In these conditions we have to be even more careful than usual. We have never had such a long and dry drought, so we don’t fully know the effect it will have on the California soil, and thus what effect it will have on home foundations. We can only wait and see as the season passes.”
