Drought: the distress of owners whose house cracks


TESTIMONIALS – Windows that no longer open, a crack in the ground, the particularly dry summer has a devastating effect on certain homes.

My house is no longer for sale.

My property is devalued because of the cracks

,” laments Patrick, whose house, located on clay soil in Rochefort-du-Gard, in the Occitanie region (30), is cracking due to the drought.

July was indeed the driest month on record since 1959, causing damage to homes, and August is no rainier so far.


Pavilions are the accommodation most exposed to drought

Patrick was convinced that he would never face this type of problem, even after seeing his neighbors in turmoil because of their cracked houses.

The house was built by a mason, the foundations are solid.

The cracks took longer to appear with us than with our neighbours, they are less wide, but they are there

”, worries the municipal councilor.
