The Importance of a Proper Drainage System

Posted May 31, 2017, under Blog

LOS ANGELES, CA: A foundation repair and construction company, Julian Construction (, is informing the public on why a proper drainage system is important for a safe home.

Water can be a homeowner’s worst enemy as it can ruin or destroy their home. Leaks can cause pipes to rust and burst, and ceilings to crack. Water can seep behind walls and into floors, which can increase the risk of mold. Additionally, when water starts to collect outside of a home, the culprit is a drainage issue. If homeowners don’t make sure that their drainage systems are properly maintained on a regular basis, damages can occur to the home or its foundation.

Having a proper drainage system means that falling water is controlled and moved away from the home in a way as to also prevent standing water that won’t go away. There are definite signs homeowners can check for regularly to ensure their drainage systems are working properly, including:

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

If any of the above signs are found, Julian Construction advices on getting it fixed as soon as possible.
