What Causes Slab Foundation Problems?
The leading cause of slab foundation problems is “settling” caused by the expansion and contraction of the soil on which the slab sits. There are three predominant types of soil In the Dallas / Fort Worth area.
- Sandy soil
- Loamy soil
- Clay soil
Sandy soil consists of large, loosely packed particles that allow it to drain more easily. Loamy soil contains both large and small particles and has good moisture retention and drainage characteristics.
Clay soil, also referred to as “expansive” soil, is denser than sandy and loamy soils and tends to expand and shrink depending on seasonal changes in rainfall and temperature. This is the predominant type of soil in Fort Worth and greater Tarrant County, and the type that’s responsible for most of foundation problems in the area.
Slab Foundation Repair Methods
