Improper Drainage & Causes of Settling – Foundation Repair Tip of the Day #103

🐪Happy Hump Day!🐪
In today’s #FoundationRepair #TipOfTheDay Brian and Mark are back to discuss another common cause of settling in homes! Improper drainage or lack of drainage often greatly impacts the soils beneath a home. Here in Southern California we see soils largely made up of clay, which expands and contracts in the presence of moisture.
Sloping the soil away from footing of the home should be the first step a homeowner take, especially if the home does not have rain gutters or drainage.
Mark believes a large majority of the foundation issues he’s seen out here could have beeen completely mitigated with the installation of proper drainage!
