An Overview of Garland Texas
Garland, Texas is located in Dallas and Collin counties. It is a major suburb of Dallas, Texas and is the tenth largest city in the state. The city consists of a total of 57.1 square miles of area.
Garland, TX rests upon a relatively flat area of soils that contain a high percentage of clay. These clay soils are well known for their ability to damage concrete slab foundations. The clay soils absorb water and swell in volume during wet periods. During hot and dry weather, the clay soils lose water and shrink dramatically in volume. Although this soil movement under a concrete foundation will typically be one to five inches, there are cases where vertical soil movement was as much as nine inches. This soil movement, vertical and horizontal, puts enormous stress on a rigid concrete foundation. Often times the stress of soil movement is greater than the strength of the concrete foundation and the result is a cracked foundation with damage to the interior of the home or building. The solution is to stabilize the foundation with greater support that will resist these forces of soil movement. At Dawson Foundation Repair, we provide this additional support with Bell Bottom Piers, a long-term, permanent solution.
