Without a proper system of drainage, excess water will have no outlet and will accumulate in the indentations in the soil, and in cracks and crevices in and around the foundation. When this happens, the soil can experience shrinkage and expansion causing the foundation to shift or raise. At LA Structural we strive to deliver the best foundation drainage Los Angeles has to offer.
Over a period of time, this movement can damage the foundation structure. In a lot of cases, this process goes unnoticed. And by the time the problem is identified, the damage to your foundation can be substantial. Southern California does not have an extensively wet climate. However, without proper drainage, even a few hours of heavy rainfall can lead to considerable amounts of water pooling in and around your property.
This is why it is important for property owners to focus on a good drainage system as a means of keeping their foundation in good condition. LA Structural has helped many homeowners and residential property owners in Los Angeles establish robust drainage systems for their property.

A number of our customers ask us if there are warning signs that could have indicated that their property has poor drainage - there always are. However, in most instances by the time deficient drainage issues are discovered, damage to the foundation is substantial. To help you understand what to look out for, here are a few things you should watch out for:
If you notice any one or more of the above-mentioned warning signs then it is best to get your foundation checked by a professional foundation expert from LA Structural. We will help channel the water away from your foundation and direct the flow towards the street with the help of underground drain lines, or landscape elevation grading and concrete channels. This can help address your immediate water pooling issues and also effectively prepare your property for any future downpour.
