Weston Lakes is an incorporated city located in northwest Fort Bend County, Texas. It is a small city with a total area of 2.7 square miles. The city has experienced a rapid rise in home building and population in the decade of 2010-2020. This growth in new homes has revealed the fact that most concrete slab home foundations are being built to minimal standards, that is, they are built with a minimum of concrete and steel rebar. We refer to these slab foundations as “minimally functional” foundations. We have seen a rapid uptick in the need for foundation repair in Weston Lakes, Texas.
Weston Lakes consists primarily of a 1600 acre planned community. It is a gated community with a 24 hour guard at the entry.
It is approximately 33 miles west of downtown Houston. The zip code for Weston Lakes is 77441.
The Problem – Clay Soils
The clay soils in Weston Lakes have unique properties that are problematic for concrete slab foundations. These soils will expand in volume when wet and shrink in volume when dry. This annual and seasonal process of expansion and contraction exerts tremendous forces on rigid concrete slab foundations. When a home’s slab foundation is constructed with a minimal thickness and with minimal steel rebar, then the results are predictable – fractured and broken slab foundations within a few years. Generally we see these foundations begin to fail in years 10 through 20 but in Weston Lakes we have seen significant foundation problems in many homes that are less than 10 years of age.

The solution for concrete slab home foundations that are fractured or broken (settlement or upheaval) is to provide a strong support structure underneath the foundation that will resist the forces of soil movement.
