Georgetown, Texas is located in Williamson County and consists of a total area of 24.9 square miles. It is located on the northeastern edge of the Texas hill country. The western portion is characterized by karst topography or soluble bedrock such as limestone or dolomite and the eastern portion consists of more arable land.
Georgetown, like much of central Texas, is covered by soils that have a high percentage of clay. Clay soils are responsible for soil movement and the resulting need for foundation repair. Clay soils swell in volume when very wet and create a force known as “uplift.” The problem with uplift is that it is rarely uniform under a home or commercial building. When a portion of a home or commercial building foundation is uplifted by three or four inches and the remaining portion is not uplifted, then the rigid concrete slab foundation will crack. And the home or commercial building will suffer damage also. Similar damage can occur when the clay soils become very dry and shrink. When the clay soils shrink too much then they lose contact with portions of the bottom of the concrete foundation. With nothing to support it, those portions of the foundation can fall or collapse several inches.
