SOUTH CENTRAL TEXAS CONCRETE SLABS
What Causes Foundation Movement?
The clay soils that are found throughout South Central Texas are the main culprit of foundation movement in this area. Clay is capable of holding a lot of water, and when the clay dries out, it shrinks. Likewise, when the clay becomes saturated, it expands. All of this shrinkage and expansion is happening below your home all the time, pushing and pulling on your foundation. Eventually, your home’s foundation will begin to crack under the pressure.
