Getting to Know San Antonio’s Soil
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.
