Carrollton, Texas is a suburb of Dallas, Texas and is located in portions of three counties – Denton, Dallas, and Collin counties. The city has a total land area of 36.5 square miles and 0.2 square miles of water area. Geographically it has the same type of soils of its larger neighbor. Unfortunately, these soils consist of a large percentage of clays and clays are known to change volume significantly with changes in moisture content.
Many of the homes and smaller commercial buildings in Carrollton experience foundation damage due to soil movement. Do you know the warning signs for foundation movement and damage? Cracked exterior bricks, cracked interior sheetrock, and doors and windows that do not open or close properly are all warning signs of foundation damage. If the roofline is bowed in the middle it is an indication that the soil under the center of the home or building has compacted and the foundation has collapsed several inches. If exterior brick walls appear to be leaning outward then the outside foundation perimeter may have cracked and sunk several inches. It is always a good idea to have a professional to inspect these warning signs because they usually become worse over time.
We utilize the Bell Bottom method of foundation repair exclusively. Why? Because it is the best – proven, time-tested, and permanent. It is the same construction concept that is used to build concrete columns for highway overpasses.
