Dura Pier Foundation Repair in Friendswood Texas
Friendswood Texas is a quiet community south of Houston, nestled between Pearland to the north, League City to the south, Alvin to the west, and Clear Lake to the east. Most residences are on large lots, with large, mature native trees such as oak, ash, pine, and willow. While the trees add beauty and character to the homes, the root systems have had plenty of time to influence the settlement of the foundations. The highly expansive soil in Friendswood, combined with the effects of the large trees, combine to make foundation repair very common, much like all of the neighbors in the area.
All types of foundations are constructed in Friendswood , but the majority are shallow slabs, with some of the newer ones using the post-tension design. The huge shrink-swell potential of the “Black Gumbo” clay soil in Friendswood requires flexibility in repair methods choices. For homes with lighter loads Deep Drilled Bell Bottom Piers will usually suffice, while heavier, two story homes need more substantial underpinning systems, like Dura Lock Lifetime Pilings. With average pile driving depths of refusal in Friendswood being greater than 20 feet deep, pilings allow for a more long lasting load transfer, and the longer lasting Lifetime Transferable Warranties.
