Perma-Pier has been repairing foundations in Dallas-Fort Worth and Arlington markets for over two decades. We have expertise in the Texas soils specific to each region and have successfully completed over 30,000 residential and commercial repairs.
DALLAS: 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.
FORT WORTH: Soils in Fort Worth are different from those in Dallas – or anywhere else in Texas – and we understand how to handle those differences. Homes on Eagle Mountain Lake will be heavily influenced by their proximity to such a large body of water, whereas older pier & beam foundations, like those found in Fairmount, will behave in an entirely different manner.
Western and Central Tarrant County consists of several different limestone formations (the Washita group) made up of limestone and shale that produce a variety of clay-rich soils with rocky shallow soil horizons. Eastern Tarrant county is supported by Woodbine sandstone, a picturesque rolling topography dominated by sandy loams and clay-rich soils. These sandier soils allow for subsurface water movement and require special consideration. This propensity for water movement can easily compromise the foundations of Fort Worth homes.
ARLINGTON: Arlington is primarily underpinned by the Woodbine sandstone, a picturesque rolling topography dominated by sandy loams and clay-rich soils. This sandstone serves as the parent material for a variety of soils. Some common ones include the Rader fine sandy loam, the Crosstell fine sandy loam, the Lewisville clay, and the Bastsil fine sandy loam. These sandier, clay-rich soils allow for subsurface water movement and require special consideration. This propensity for water movement can easily compromise the foundations of Arlington-area properties.
