What Effect Do the Storms Have on Your Los Angeles Home ?

It’s refreshing to know that almost all of Los Angeles is out of drought after experiencing storms in the past weeks, However as a homeowner there is as much to be worried about as there is to celebrate because a storm in los Angeles also means floods, mudslides or property damage.

Experiencing a storm in los Angeles will damage your property in a number of ways especially after experiencing a drought like Los Angeles did. Foundations get affected the most in situations like this. If the foundation is surrounded by clay soils then the sudden expansion of these expansive soils will push against the foundation and cause damage. Drainage problems also tend to significantly increase during a storm. Overflowing or leaking gutters are a common sight during a storm in los Angeles if they were not regularly cleaned out. Roofs that don’t regularly leak also tend to leak which increases the likelihood of flooded basements or rooms in the house.
