Most homeowners will not experience dramatic structure or rain water troubles, but a few do.

There are some things a homeowner can do to help avoid problems.

First, they can make sure the lot their house is built on is properly graded to lead water away from their house.

And they should make sure they’ve got rain gutters that take all the rain that falls on their home and push it away from their house too.

Another key aspect in determining potential foundation issues is the makeup of the soil the home rests on.

Certain types of soil trap more moisture than other soils do.

Some San Diego County lots have soil that causes problems, while other neighborhoods do not.

The extensive roots of a big tree close to your home can actually draw all the moisture from underneath your building, making it get too dry during a typical dry and hot Summer months.

This dryness may cause the soil to contract and shrink too much.

Different types of external forces can bring about smallish cracks in your foundation bringing in air, moisture and small bugs, and small cracks might get bigger as time goes on.
