Not all areas of San Antonio are problematic for homeowners when it comes to maintaining their foundation. In our experience, foundation failures are more common in the I-35 corridor and northeast San Antonio. Still, as with any home in any region of Texas, making an accurate assessment of the foundation beneath your foundation – your dirt – is key to a solid foundation repair.
Of the many soil types found in San Antonio and Bexar County, Eckrant clay consists of well-drained, moderately slowly permeable soils that are very shallow. Often referred to as “potato dirt”, Eckrant’s makeup makes digging and installing piers difficult. Other problematic soil types include Pecan Gap, Marlbrook, and Carizzo which can require deep piers and be problematic in terms of how they move water. Knowledge of these soil types should inform your foundation repair strategy.

Property builders and owners choose pier and beam foundations for a new build for a few reasons – some include flood prevention capabilities and ease of access to utilities. Of course, no foundation approach is invincible. Issues like aggressive tree roots and expansive soils can cause any foundation—pier and beam included—to become compromised.
These foundations require experienced and knowledgeable approaches for their repair. At Perma Pier, we provide pier and beam foundation repair for properties across San Antonio. Thanks to our access to updated technologies and engineer expertise, there’s little we can’t do in our approach to your pier and beam foundation repair.
Mudjacking as a repair method for slab concrete foundations comes with several serious benefits. For one: it’s simple. The process involves injecting mud to help lift the foundation where it’s needed. And it’s among the least invasive methods since it doesn’t require breaking through large sections of the property’s slab. Furthermore, mudjacking repairs can also be completed in one day and aren’t hindered by weather conditions.
That said, while it’s a relatively simple means of repairing a foundation, mudjacking still requires that someone with years of know-how take on the job. At Perma Pier, our team of professionals is well-equipped to take on slab foundation repairs for just about any property in San Antonio.
