Foundation Repair in Cypress, Texas

The area northeast of highway 290 is forested and thickly wooded, while the area southwest of 290 is predominately ranch land, populated with scrub brush, live oaks, and post oaks.
Soil Conditions in Cypress Texas
The soil in Cypress Texas is sandy loam, which is a mixture of clay and sand. The shrink swell potential with moisture content isn’t as great as Houston’s, but has enough variations to cause foundation problems. Add to that the presence of large mature trees, which can require hundreds of gallons of water a day to survive, and there is a recipe for foundation failure.
Foundation Repair Preventative Measures in Cypress Texas
Because the soil in Cypress typically moves slower to harm foundations, there remain other options for homeowners besides piers or pilings. A popular option in Deep Root Barriers, which are installed a safe distance between the tree and the structure, and prevent root penetration and moisture removal. Another viable option for preventing foundation movements are Moisture Maintenance Systems, where soaker hoses are placed near the foundation perimeter, and regulated by timers, or soil sensitive unit.
