An Overview of Texas City Texas
Texas City, Texas is located in Galveston and Chambers counties. It is located on the southwest shoreline of Galveston Bay and is a busy deepwater port on Texas' Gulf Coastand. Texas City has significant foundation repair problems due to the clay soils of the area. The United States Census Bureau states that Texas City has a total area of 185.6 square miles (480.6 km2), of which 121.7 square miles (315.3 km2), or 65.61%, is water.
Texas City is primarily a residential and water resort area and most of the homes and buildings are built upon concrete slab foundations. These foundations are subject to the forces and stresses exerted by the movement of clay soils. Clay soils have water absorption properties and can absorb large amounts of water during wet weather periods. The clay soils can also lose large amounts of water during hot, dry weather. The result is that the clay soils are moving horizontally and vertically and many of the rigid concrete slab foundation are unable to resist these forces and crack. When the foundation cracks, there is usually damage done to the interior of the home or building such as cracked floors and cracks in the walls.
