Southern California may be famous for sunshine, but when it rains, it pours — and without proper waterproofing, buildings can take the brunt of rainstorms. Gaveet Construction helps preserve the upscale feel of Sherman Oaks with waterproofing services to keep buildings pristine and free of water damage.
As a structure settles with age, small openings appear and allow water to permeate the facade. As a result, toxic mold and fungus may flourish as cracks and stains mar the outer surfaces. Building owners bear responsibility for costly repairs, which may require the removal of landscaping, concrete or pavement.
