Willis Soil Characteristics As They Affect Foundation Repair
Willis consists of 3.3 square miles of area and rests at an elevation of 381 feet. The Gulf Coastal Plains, of which Willis is a part, is a flat to rolling topography that included many streams, rivers, and marsh wetlands. Most importantly, the Gulf Coastal Plains is largely comprised of many layers of sediments with a high clay content. The clay in the sediments give the soils a very undesireable characteristic for concrete slab foundations – movement. The clay soils will expand in volume when wet and shrink in volume when dry. This expansion and shrinkage equals movement and is repeated every year.
