The East Bay’s General Contractor, Mara Construction Announces Their Drainage and Ventilation Service

Orinda, California (EastBayDaily) — The winter season is almost here. The changing conditions, from wet to dry, can be very bad for home foundations as it could cause mold growth and deterioration. The full service East Bay general contractor, Mara Construction can now offer to help keep under floor areas dry and free of mold with drainage and ventilation systems, and while drainage systems often get overlooked, they are just as important as the foundation.

Mara Construction of the East Bay offers to install foundations, foundation repair, drainage systems to all types of foundations (slab or raised floor) and venting for homes with crawl spaces. Foundations and drainage systems go hand in hand. The venting can be very important to keep the ground under the home dry preventing mold or moisture to develop. The drainage will help ensure that the water is directed away from the crawl space and from going under the foundation. Mara Construction uses Mirror Drain as a water barrier, catching underground water that comes down the wall directing the water into a proper drainage system. Mara Construction also uses 3/4″drain rock in conjunction with SDR35 PVC drainage pipe to complete the system. To keep water from penetrating the concrete, Mara Construction uses a sheet membrane waterproofing system from Tremco called Paraseal or Bituthene a similar product.
