Dallas Fort Worth Foundation Repair

Concrete Slab and Pier and Beam Repairs

Foundation Repair in Dallas

Dallas and its surrounding area are mostly flat; the city itself lies at elevations ranging from 450 to 550 feet (137 to 168 m). The western edge of the Austin Chalk Formation, a limestone escarpment (also known as the "White Rock Escarpment"), rises 230 feet (70 m) and runs roughly north-south through Dallas County. South of the Trinity River, the uplift is particularly noticeable in the neighborhoods of Oak Cliff and the adjacent cities of Cockrell Hill, Cedar Hill, Mesquite, Grand Prairie, and Irving. Marked variations in terrain are also found in cities immediately to the west in Tarrant County surrounding Fort Worth, as well as along Turtle Creek north of Downtown. The one thing these areas all have in common is the presence of a high clay content in the soil. This is common for most of North Texas. As clay dries out it shrinks and contracts allowing piers to twist and sink downward. Concrete slab foundations move with the soil as well but these foundations were designed to float on top of the soil. With proper maintenance and good design these foundations can withstand some soil movement. But foundations with poor design and inadequate support will fail. Other causes of foundation failure include improper drainage, trees roots and improper maintenance. Foundation Repair in Dallas Texas creates challenges for the repair contractor.
