Let's Get Started
Get to Know Austin’s Soils
Austin is known for keeping it weird, and the soils there are no exception. To do foundation repair work in Austin, it’s important to understand the intricacies and idiosyncrasies of the Texas Prairie Land as well as the many smaller soil configurations that encompass much of Austin west of I-35.
The greater Austin/Travis County area is made of a conglomerate of multiple limestone formations, like the Glen Rose formation, producing soils which tend to be clay-rich and shallow in their horizons. In the easternmost part of the county, you’ll find very expansive clay soils with horizons that tend to be deep and well developed. One of the most expansive clay soils in Texas is called Houston Black. These soil horizons are typically shallow to medium in depth and are poorly drained due to their high clay content. Understanding these varied soil types is key to forming a successful foundation repair plan.
Regardless of the soil type underneath your home or commercial property, recognizing the signs of a foundation failure as soon as possible can save you thousands of dollars.

Frequently Asked Questions
What causes foundation issues in Austin?
The answer to this is as tricky as the soils present in Austin. East of I35 there are highly expansive clay soils that heave and contract easily depending on the moisture content. West of I35 you’ll find varying degrees of quartz formations, clay, hard rock formations, granite, and other soil series. It all comes down to proper moisture content in the soils. When we inspect your property, we will let you know what soils are present and give you a plan of repair that fits those soil types.
