An Overview of Richmond Texas
Richmond, Texas is located in Fort Bend County and numerous homeowners and commercial building owners have needed foundation repair in the past. The reason is because the entire southeastern portion of Texas is covered with clay soils, and clay soils move. It is estimated that 60% of all homes built on expansive clay soils suffer foundation damage. Clay soils create problems when they absorb or lose water because their volume changes dramatically. This will cause the soils to uplift (expand) or to settle (shrink). The difference in this vertical movement can be as much as nine inches and it is accompanied by horizontal movement also. This seesaw movement creates tremendous stresses on a rigid concrete slab foundation. Usually the result is one or more cracks in the foundation and accompanying damage to the exterior and interior of the home or commercial building. Cracked exterior brick, cracked interior walls, bulging floors, and doors that won't close are all warning signs of foundation damage.
Richmond, TX is a small city in the southwestern portion of the Houston metro area. The total area of the city only amounts to 3.9 square miles of which 5.58% is surface water. It is bounded by Sugar Land and Rosenberg.
