An Overview of Missouri City Texas
Missouri City, Texas is located in the Houston/Galveston metroplex area and has experienced significant problems with foundation damage and foundation repair. It is located mostly in Fort Bend county but a small portion is located in Harris county. The city has 30.4 square miles of total area of which 2.37% is surface water. The city has a long history in Texas dating back to the mid 1800s.
Missouri City is located in a geographic area that is characterized by large concentrations of clay in the soil. Unfortunately, these clay soils "play havoc" with building and home foundations. One of the characteristics of clay soils is that they will expand and contract with changes in water content. When the weather is wet and rainy the soils will absorb large quantities of water and swell in volume. The result is that they will "uplift" part of a rigid concrete slab foundation and crack it. And there is almost always corresponding damage to the exterior and interior of the home or commercial building. When the weather is dry and hot for long periods of time the clay soils will lose water and shrink dramatically. The result is that the soil loses contact with the concrete foundation above. Now that portion of the foundation has no support and it can collapse and crack, also causing damage to the exterior and interior of the home or commercial building.
