Foundation Settlement in North Texas

Foundation settlement is the downward movement of a building to below its original position. Foundation settlement is usually caused by the shifting or compaction of the underlying soil due to many reasons. A few of the more common causes of foundation settlement are:

  • Weak bearing soils – some soils are not capable of supporting the weight or pressure exerted by the building’s foundation
  • Poor compaction – When fills soils are not adequately compacted, it can compress under a foundation load resulting in settlement
  • Changes in moisture content – Excess moisture content within foundation soils leads to weakening of the soil reducing the ability of

  • Maturing trees and vegetation – Maturing trees and bushes in close proximity to a home can draw moisture from the soil beneath the foundation causing foundation settlement.
  • Soil consolidation – When the weight of a structure compresses the newly-placed fill soils to weak clayey soils, this consolidation results in the downward movement of the overlying structure.
