our weather patterns plus the high clay content of our
soils wreaks havoc on our structures. Clay soils move dramatically with the moisture content. During our rainy seasons, an abundance of moisture is added and the soil expands or swells, causing lift. During hot and dry conditions the soil shrinks and cracks. Each year as a typical weather cycle occurs here in texas, your home, in affect lifts and drops. over time the foundation is unable to keep the structure from shifting and cracks start to appear in sheetrock or any rigid materail(bricks,mortor,ect). as the damage continues, doors can stick, walls can shift, windows can become harder to use. watering maintenance is the key. it does not guarantee you won't need foundation repair but it can certainly reduce the need or help to minimize the effects. however, once damage occurs, watering will not repair it. let us look at you foundation issues for a free, honest, no obligation evaluation.
