Lufkin Soil Characteristics As They Affect Foundation Repair
According to the United States Census Bureau, Lufkin has a total area of 26.8
square miles of which 0.1 square mile (0.48%) is surface water. It rests upon
the Gulf Coastal Plain at an elevation of 312 feet. The Gulf Coastal Plain is
a large area of flat to rolling terrain that was formed by the deposit of sediments
over thousands of years. These sediments contain a large percentage of clay
and clay soils that are known to expand and shrink with changes in moisture
content. This characteristic of clay soils, expansion and contraction, creates
both vertical and horizontal soil movement. The annual and constant movement
of clay soils under a rigid concrete slab foundation has the potential to create
severe damage such as uplift, collapse, and/or cracking.
