Foundation Repair Specialist in Katy Texas
The main reason foundation repair is needed in the Katy area is related to our ever-changing weather patterns. Foundations, especially slab foundations, are highly susceptible to the moisture content in the soil.
Katy is known for extreme weather changes. It can rain for days on end, and then not rain a drop for two months or more. As a home experiences season after season of these changes, the soil becomes more and more eroded, lessening the soil's load bearing capacity. As homes get older, the more likely that they will display significant signs of stress associated with foundation settlement.
Dura Pier Foundation Repair Service in Katy TX.
In the Katy area, most homes are not constructed with any kind of pilings or piers. It is not part of our city's building code. Because most homes don't have any support under them, eventually it becomes necessary to add an underpinning system. There's an old adage that says, "There are only three kinds of homes in the Katy area: Homes too new to need foundation repair; Homes that need foundation repair; Homes that have had foundation repair."
The decision to support the foundation by installing pilings or piers is the single most effective way to control foundation settlement. The pro's and con's of both repair systems are discussed elsewhere in this website, and in the "Engineer's Review Article".
