Lack of proper drainage can be severely damaging to your foundation.

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.

How Do I Know If My Property Has Poor Drainage?

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:

  • Your basement has a damp/musty smell.
  • You notice water stains on your basement or foundation walls.
  • Extensive moss growth close to the structure.
  • Crawl spaces are damp or wet.
  • Water pooling around the foundation.
  • Your roof drain pipe pours water around your foundation.
  • 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.

    “I had an issue with my backyard not draining properly due to the developers of the complex, I have an almost fully concrete backyard with no drain or no slope. LA Structural’s expert met with me at my house and explained a few solutions that he would like to explore. Within a week they contacted me with the ideal drainage solution to solve my issue.

    Knowing that it would be a costly solution Jake did offer me other possible solutions, which included removing the concrete in the backyard, possibly importing new dirt if my existing soil didn’t absorb water fast enough, making the backyard lower, and adding grass, all of these solutions he proposed were outside of what LA Structural does but he wanted to make sure I had multiple ideas to explore so I can have a solution, even if it wasn't through LA Structural. Their service was great!”
