Spring Soil Characteristics As They Affect Foundation Repair
According to the United State Census Bureau, Spring has a total area of 24 square miles. The majority of Spring is land area and surface water comprises only 0.13% or 0.04 square miles. Spring shares the same geography of its southern neighbor, Houston. It is located on the Gulf Coastal Plains, a large flat to rolling topography that was formed by the deposits of sediments over thousands of years. These sediments contain a significant percentage of clay soils which are the primary culprit in concrete slab foundation damage. Clay soils have a unique characteristic in that their volume can change with changes in moisture content. When clay soils become wet they expand in volume. When clay soils become dry they shrink in volume. This constant expansion and shrinking put enormous stresses on a rigid concrete foundation. Many times the stresses on the concrete foundation are stronger than the foundation itself and will lead to variety of damaging situations. Foundations, or portions of a foundation, can experience uplift, collapse, and cracking due to soil movement.
