Concrete Issue in Maricopa AZ?

Sulfate Issues in Maricopa, AZ

Concrete Issue in Maricopa AZ

You may have heard that there was a concrete issue in Maricopa AZ.  Basically, they are in relation to the foundations of the homes from when they were built.  The sulfate in the ground absorbs into the concrete foundations and wears it away.  There was a study done on the issue and it the results of the study found that the only subdivision in Maricopa that could be affected by this is Maricopa Meadows.  AMEC Earth and Environmental Inc performed the study and you can see the results in their official document.

In detail, according to the International Building Code, sulfate levels of .1 – .2 can have moderate effect,  .2 – 2 have severe effects and anything above 2 can have very severe effects.  Sulfate levels in the ground in several places in Maricopa Meadows tested as .12, .17, .33, .34 and .03.  Sulfate levels can drastically change from home to home.  Does this cause concern about the concrete issue in Maricopa, AZ?

What happens is when the soil becomes wet the sulfates dissolve in the water and are absorbed by the concrete which dries, then the sulfates attack the materials that hold the concrete together.  There needs to be a cycle of moisture to drying to create the breakdown of the concrete.  Some protective measures would be to make sure sprinklers aren’t spraying near the base of the home.  Also, grading the ground to push water away from the foundation, installing rain gutters, and utilizing sealants on the concrete.  However, homes with this concrete issue in Maricopa AZ should still hold up for over 100 years.

Concrete Issue in Maricopa AZ?

A lawsuit was filed by the HOA in 2010.  In addition it also involved 600 or so of the 1600 homeowners in Maricopa Meadows.  It concluded that the builders were negligent and used an incorrect concrete mixture.   The home builders involved were Brown Family Communities, Courtland Homes, Elite Communities, Frontier Homes, HomeLife Communities, KB Home, Richmond American Homes and Standard Pacific Homes.  Apparently, it ended with the homeowners receiving a check for a few thousand dollars to have epoxy injections into the foundation that is supposed to repair the issue.  There are also water proofing techniques that can help as well.  If you are concerned you should talk to a professional technician who knows specifically about the sulfate issue in Maricopa, AZ.  They can possibly ease your mind with correct repairs.

Does the Wash in Rancho el Dorado Flood in Maricopa AZ

Does the Wash in the Rancho el Dorado Subdivision in Maricopa Get Flooded?

So, you were looking at homes for sale in Maricopa, AZ and you found the perfect house in Rancho el Dorado.  It’s one of the subdivisions with the easiest commute into the Phoenix area.  You are getting more house for your money.  You are under contact and about to close escrow.  You want to take one last look at the house before you get the keys.  As you are driving along the road called Rancho el Dorado Parkway you notice a pretty big wash.  Then you see the sign that says “Do Not Enter When Flooded”.  You keep driving out of curiosity and notice another wash crossing the same road at the other end of the subdivision.  Your heart begins to beat fast as you reconsider your home buying decision… does this wash really flood?  Will I be able to get in or out of the subdivision if it does?

Does the Wash in Rancho el Dorado Flood in Maricopa AZRanchoWashNorth

Does the Wash in Rancho el Dorado Flood in Maricopa AZ

The answer is yes, these washes flood.  Is it a big concern?  No.  Rancho el Dorado Pkwy is a circle.  There is one wash that runs straight through the north end, through the middle of the subdivision, and exits at the south end.

WashMapRancho

In my time living in Maricopa I’ve noticed flooding occurs about 2-3 times a year and the gates close to the wash area when it is unsafe to drive through.  After heavy rains it usually takes a day or two for the water to make its way down the wash creating a pool of water over the road.

You will not be trapped in or out of the subdivision.  If you live on the west side of the subdivision you can get in and out at the main entrance off of John Wayne Pkwy or take Vintage Dr. to Smith Enke Rd.  If you live on the east side you will have to either cut through The Lakes at Rancho el Dorado or take Santa Rosa Dr. or Desert Greens Dr. to Smith Enke Rd.  Does this answer your question about does the wash in Rancho el Dorado flood in Maricopa AZ.

It’s really no big deal.  It’s a pretty minor inconvenience and it barely ever rains in Arizona.  They put the gates down so you don’t try to drive through it and get your car stuck.  I would not let the wash in Rancho el Dorado flooding affect your home buying decision if you have found a nice house in Rancho el Dorado.  I live in Rancho el Dorado and love it.  I’ve never had a problem and when the wash floods it’s just a minor inconvenience to exit the subdivision a different way.  Wondering if Rancho el Dorado is in a flood zone because of this wash?  You can take a look at my post Is My Maricopa Home in a Flood Zone?

I’m a Maricopa, AZ realtor and would love to assist you in purchasing your new home.  Please contact me with any questions or if you’d like to get started finding your new home.

Foreclosures in Rancho el Dorado, Maricopa, AZ

You may be looking to get a great deal on a house in Rancho el Dorado by seeking out foreclosures.  Since I live and work in Rancho el Dorado I know much about its real estate market.  Sometimes you can get a good deal, but sometimes not.  A lot of research should be done to investigate the value of the foreclosure you may be interested in by checking recently sold prices, the condition of the home, average price per square foot on comps, etc.  I can do that research for you to make sure you are happy with the home you are thinking about purchasing.

With foreclosures, you are dealing with a bank instead of an actual seller who lived in the house.  How does this affect the home buying process?  Not much.  It’s pretty much the same except for a few small things.  Above is a list of all of the foreclosure homes for sale in Rancho el Dorado in Maricopa, AZ up to date by my MLS.  If you happen to click it and see no results, make sure you keep trying back to see if any new ones hit the market.  Or if you prefer, I can set you up with a customized search that will email you new listings as they hit the market.  If you are interested in that, please contact me at the information below.

If you see any foreclosures you like, let me know and we can set up a showing.  I’d be happy to help you in the home buying process from start to finish.
