Getting to Know Dallas Soil 

Soils in Dallas are different from soils found anywhere else in Texas. Central Dallas County is underpinned by Austin chalk, easily recognizable by its bright white appearance and steep relief. The soils produced by Austin chalk typically comprise a shallow horizon due to the chalk’s resistance to weathering. Eastern Dallas County sits on the Ozan marl which produces particularly tricky soils that shrink, swell, and move water differently. Because of this unique soil geology, your property’s foundation is susceptible to failure.

Recognizing the signs of a foundation failure  – such as exterior cracks in your masonry or windows and door that don’t operate smoothly – and acting on them as soon as possible can save you thousands. Want to save even more money? Make sure your foundation repair company can answer these 10 important questions.

There’s also a chance your foundation may be just fine.

In about 1/3 of all the properties we evaluate, a simple modification to your property’s drainage system is all that is needed.

What our customers say

The salesperson, Brian, set the process in motion on 10/31/2016, and work was finished by 11/11/2016. Mike and his crew took great care preparing the property for their work – that care was appreciated. They were on time, which was excellent. They put tarps down to pile the dirt at each hole, placing rocks and extra dirt where I requested. When Miguel and his crew arrived, they worked together like a well-oiled machine. They had to remove part of my deck and jackhammer through the patio. I thought they would make a mess but they did it professionally — and now it doesn’t look like one board was removed. They even replaced the cement for the patio. The office staff, Heather, Jennifer, Nickie and Cathy, was excellent; taking the time to explain the process, as well as following up afterwards. I will recommend this company to everyone who needs foundation repair.
