As the spring rains come, people in this area of California must be vigilant to watch for signs of issues that come with the overflow of rains. Water damage to roofs, foundations and other components of structures can lead to serious issues. For most people, there aren’t going to be any problems that come from it. When there are problems that arise, they must be addressed promptly, or massive destruction can occur.
One thing that many people don’t think is how construction defects might play a part in this situation. The fact here is that any issues with the building can exacerbate the impacts of the rainy season. For example, a foundation without proper drainage might fail. This puts the entire building in danger of falling. Another example is a roof that isn’t properly installed. There is a chance that it could fall in due to the weight of the waterlogged trusses and other components.
