Living in Texas means that extreme temperatures are the norm. Heat, Cold, rain, and sun can cause soil to expand and contract, potentially damaging your home’s foundation. Temperature in East Texas can vary by as much as 20 degrees in a few days time.
Temperature changes can cause soil to expand and contract, causing foundations to crack or become unstable. This is one of the most common causes for foundation problems in the Northeast Texas area.
Another common issue in this part of the country is the type of soil. Sandy soil can shift or lose stability. Clay soil presents another challenge. In damp or wet weather clay soil absorbs tremendous amounts of water. Then when the weather dries out the clay hardens and contracts, damaging home foundations.
