McKinney, Texas is located in Collin county and as it has grown it has needed more foundation repair for its homes and buildings. The entire northern and northeastern portion of Texas is covered with soils that have a high percentage of clay. Unfortunately for homeowners and building owners, clay soils move horizontally and vertically and can severely damage rigid concrete foundations. Concrete foundations are supported by the soil underneath them and if the soil is moving upward, downward, or horizontally then tremendous forces are stressing the foundations. Typically clay soils will absorb water during periods of rainy weather and expand. When the clay soils underneath a home or commercial building expand they create “uplift” and can crack the foundation. When the clay soils underneath a home or commercial building lose water due to hot, dry weather they will shrink and lose contact with the concrete foundation above. The foundation can then collapse and crack. And when a foundation has experienced damage usually the interior and exterior of the home or building will have damage also.
McKinney is located on the northeastern edge of the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex and is named after Collin McKinney, one of the original signers of the Texas Declaration of Independence. The city has 58.5 square miles of total area of which less than one percent is surface water.
