Frequently Asked Questions:
How did my foundation get this way?
Unstable soil conditions found throughout North Texas and the DFW Metroplex can account for a huge portion of foundation problems. Land movement shifts loose clay, sand, and silt found in Texas properties that causes stress on the fresh water and drain line systems. This stress separates, snaps, or leaks underground sub-slab pipes leaving water to seep and unsettle foundation. Root intrusion can also cause unnecessary stress to underground plumbing.
Why should I care about a foundation problem?
Foundation problems can create detrimental complications for your foundation. If left untreated, symptoms will only get more destructive to residential or commercial infrastructure. These problems cost thousands of dollars in foundation restoration for homes or businesses. Health risks for building occupants also occur due to contamination from broken sewers and leaking drain pipes.
