The following is was taken from from E Houston Foundation Repair :
Our Fort Bend foundation repair location offers excellent masonry and concrete repair. Fort Bend is a county in Texas. It is an old county founded in 1837 therefore has some old buildings which once in while require foundation repairs.
The county like most others in US is built on ground with expansive clay soils that develop deep cracks during dry weather. An increase in seasonal moisture extends the cracks significantly making upper portion of soil column to develop shrink/swell behavior. When moisture induced swelling increases, expansive soils will uplift causing foundation damage.
Today good foundation repair companies are difficult to find. Some of the best ones are also the oldest ones who have grown with the different types of concrete and slab repair.
Organizations such as the NFRA help to maintain a high level of ethical standards in the foundation repair industry.
