Dura Pier Foundation Repair in League City, Texas
Our service area for foundation repair includes League City Texas, a community about 20 miles south of Houston Texas. It was founded in the late 1800’s on the site of a Karankawa Indian village, and named after an early settler named J.C. League. Incorporated in 1962, League City has grown to around 85,000 residents, and in 2013 was named as the ‘Best city in Texas for people looking for jobs.’
Most of the homes in League City are single family dwellings constructed with concrete slab foundations. This type of foundation is highly susceptible to the seasonal swelling and shrinking of the clay soils. Hot, dry summers cause the clay to shrink, and rainy winters re-hydrate and swell the clay. Often these variations are too much for thin slab-on-grade concrete foundations to handle, soils erode, and the slabs eventually crack.
Foundation Repair Systems in League City.
Methods of foundation repair have evolved significantly in recent years. 25 years ago, there was only one method, the Bell Bottom Pier. Over time, the limitations of this system motivated engineers at the University of Houston to develop an alternative, the Pressed Piling System. Even the pressed piling system itself has evolved, as engineers seek a permanent solution to foundation movement.
