Perma-Pier has been repairing foundations in Dallas for over 25 years. With over 25,000 foundation repairs right here in Texas, we can say we know the various soil types of Texas.
Soils in Dallas are different from soils found anywhere else in Texas. Central Dallas County is underpinned by Austin chalk, easily recognizable by its bright white appearance and steep relief. The soils produced by Austin chalk typically comprise a shallow horizon due to the chalk’s resistance to weathering. Eastern Dallas County sits on the Ozan marl which produces particularly tricky soils that shrink, swell, and move water differently. Because of this unique soil geology, your property’s foundation is susceptible to failure.
Recognizing the signs of a foundation failure – such as exterior cracks in your masonry or windows and door that don’t operate smoothly – and acting on them as soon as possible can save you thousands. Want to save even more money? Make sure your foundation repair company can answer these 10 important questions.
There’s also a chance your foundation may be just fine.
In about 1/3 of all the properties we evaluate, a simple modification to your property’s drainage system is all that is needed.
Fortunately, Perma-Pier can help you with that, too. We offer drainage services to help control the moisture levels of the soil around your property.
