An Overview of Kingwood Texas
Kingwood, Texas is a master planned community located in the far corner of northeast Houston that has required significant foundation repair to its homes and buildings. Kingwood consists of 14,000 acres or 57 square kilometers and rests upon thick layers of clay soils, which are common throughout the geographic area. These soils are responsible for significant horizontal and vertical soil movement as they absorb and lose water with changes in weather. This soil movement creates tremendous stresses underneath the concrete slab foundations of homes and businesses. Portions of foundations can crack when "uplifted" by swelling soils or collapse and crack when clay soils lose water and shrink dramatically.
Kingwood is the largest master planned community in Harris county. A small
portion of Kingwood is also located in Montgomery county. It is known as the
"Livable Forest" because of the presence of numerous trees, particularly
pine trees. The city was founded in 1969 and annexed by the city of Houston
