3 Primary Solutions to Save Your Home Foundation from Water Damage

(LosAngeles.CityRegions.Com, March 02, 2017 ) LOS ANGELES, CA: Julian Construction (http://julianconstruction.com), a foundation repair and replacement company serving the greater Los Angeles area, is informing the public of three primary solutions for saving a home foundation from water damage, which leads to deterioration and needed replacement.

According to the company, foundation problems are unfortunately more common than we think. If a homeowner sees any leaks or cracks appearing in their foundation, the problem has already become serious. The damage from the issues that were previously ignored must be handled quickly otherwise irreparable damage could ensue, along with much more expensive repairs.

Three primary solutions to save your foundation from water damage are the use of downspouts, grading, and water.

1. Downspouts
An inexpensive option -- that requires no construction – which expands your current downspouts to make your foundations safer. There are three options with downspouts regarding extensions. First, you can simply extend it away from the house. This can be done for $30 or less, as long as the water is being conducted at least 10 feet or more from your house. The second option is to make an extra long extension underground to send all the water to a storm drain/curb. Lastly, you can make an extension to send water to a dry part of your lawn.

2. Grading
Without proper soil excavation, water can seep to your house’s base and through the walls of your foundation causing water damage. Adding several inches of grading, meaning the soil slopes away from your house, can be a preventative measure for any homeowner. While hiring a construction company may be necessary, it is also possible for an individual to accomplish this by themselves with the simple tool: a level. It’s not necessary to dig more than approximately 10 feet in order to ensure the water will move away from your foundation.

3. Water
Contrary to what some people may think, your foundation does need a little water. The trick is to make sure you have control over how much and how often its watered so no water damage occurs. Hence, with the suggestion to use downspouts, you don’t want constant rain to be sitting near the foundation of your house. On the other hand, during a dry spell, it could be beneficial to soak the soil around your foundation in order to prevent the foundation cracking and drying out. Using a hose to allow just a few inches of water to seep around the soil of your home's foundation will not only stop the contraction of it, but also control the expansion.

“Water damage, if unsuspected and unhandled over a period of time, can do serious damage to a home foundation. It is important to ensure this is not happening with your home. The best solution is to have a foundation inspection done by a knowledgeable foundation repair specialist, if you suspect any water damage or other problems with your foundation,” Julian Construction founder Julian De La Torre advised.
