The Hidden House Destroyer

“A House can be Beautiful, Healthy and make you Happy”

Scott Harris

Chief Operating Officer / Building Construction Group

We just had a nourishing much needed rain storm in Malibu.  Rain, as with all gifts of nature has an upside and downside. Do we really need to take the “bad” with the “good”?   Scott Harris has discovered ways to help avoid the “bad” created by our wind driven rain and harvest the “good” for our environment.

Contrary to public belief, leaky roofs are not the usual primary source for water intrusion leading to mold.  Sideways wind driven rain is the biggest culprit in water damage which often leads to an invasion of mold. This ‘hidden” house destroyer does not enter through the roof but rather through the walls of a home where it may go undetected for years.

Water intrusion prevention brings to mind ugly gutters and downspouts which ruin the aesthetics of finely designed homes. But Scott has a method of insulating the walls of a home from water and providing appropriate water drainage while not only maintaining the beauty of the architecture but also helping the environment by collecting rain water.

Underground Water Collection Tank

Prevention is composed of a series of steps:

  1. Scott uses a single layer of “60 Minute” underlayment and an under layer of 3D “Raindrop” paper to help prevent water intrusion through the walls.

2. The use of the ornamental gutters and downspouts  hidden inside the building             diverting water into the underground tank.    The tank is put on the highest spot on a property to help with natural flow. The attached irrigation system waters most of the landscape.

3.  The  aesthetics of the home are not compromised because the materials used are copper, zinc and stainless steel reset into the roof line and presenting as decorative  cornices in the style of the home.

Ornamental  Leader Head

More information on water and mold prevention , as well as the various types of ornamental leader heads which look like decorative cornices may be found at Building Construction Group’s web site.
