Seabrook, Texas resides in Harris county and the geology and climate of this area create significant soil instability, making home foundation repair problems a common occurrence. The entire southeastern portion of Texas is covered by clay soils, clay shales, and poorly cemented sands. The clay soils in this area have a very high plasticity, which is a rating that indicates how much soil swells or shrinks with changes in water content. When the clay soils absorb water during wet weather they swell and create “uplift” that can crack foundations. When the soils shrink during hot, dry weather they contract and shrink and often lose contact with the concrete slab foundation above. That creates a situation where the concrete slab can collapse and crack. Any time the concrete foundation cracks there is usually additional damage done to the exterior and interior of the home or building.
Seabrook has 21.5 square miles of total area, of which 15.8 square miles is surface water and 5.7 square miles is land area. The city is well know for its fish markets on Waterfront Drive. The city sponsors a number of annual events such as a marathon and a classic car and boat show.
