An Overview of Rockwall Texas
Rockwall, Texas is located in Rockwall county and many homeowners have needed foundation repair in the past. This is because of the clay soils that are present in the north and northeastern portions of Texas. While the concrete slab foundation provides support for the home or building, the soil underneath the foundation is the foundation's support. When the foundation's support (clay soils) begin to move horizontally and vertically it puts tremendous stress on a rigid concrete foundation. The result is that the foundation can crack if "uplifted" or crack and collapse if "settling." Clay soils perform these seesaw movements when their water content changes because the water content will change the volume of the soil. They will absorb water during wet weather and lose water during hot, dry weather. The solution is to give the foundation more support so it can resist future soil movement.
Rockwall county is the smallest county in Texas and the second wealthiest county in the state of Texas as measured by median income. Recently it has been one of the five fastest growing counties in the United States. The city of Rockwall has 22.6 square miles of area of which 1.63% is surface water. Rockwall is on the eastern shore of Lake Ray Hubbard. The city derives its name from natural geological formations that appear to be man-made walls.
