FOUNDATION REPAIR: What Causes Foundations and Slabs to Sink?
With more than 20 years of foundation repair experience, we have found that the majority of foundation problems are rooted in one of the three areas mentioned above.
SOILMoisture changes in North Texas cause drastic clay composition changes. Acting like a sponge, soli expands during seasons of heavy rainfall and contracting during times of seasonal drought. Continuous fluctuation causes stress on your home’s foundation. Commonly, the center areas of the slab remain undisrupted, while the perimeters settle due to exposure to the seasonal moisture changes.
LANDSCAPINGTrees and large shrubs with the extensive root systems require immense amounts of moisture to sustain their health. Moist soils located near the edge of the home, as well as underneath the slab, provide a viable source of water. And when the root system drains the additional moisture from these areas, it causes the slab to settle.
PLUMBINGMore common these days, plumbing has become a major issue for foundations. The cast iron plumbing commonly used in the 1960s and early 1970s is beginning to deteriorate and erode. The soli directly underneath the home can infuse with water, creating long-term foundation damage.

FOUNDATION REPAIR CUSTOMER REVIEWS
WE are very pleased with the work your company's crew did. They (Mario) took me through every step they were going to be doing and while they were doing it. Everyone was so nice and worked constantly. The job was finished in a short time and everything complete.
I do not have enough good things to say about the work you did. When they left, you did not even know that they had been there. Everyone was extremely friendly. Mario, our job supervisor was fantastic about keeping me in the loop on every step and showing me their progress. The work was done timely, and even though we had to add an additional pier to the job, they were still done in a day. I was worried about this process, but it went better than I could have expected.
The experience was handled in a timely professional manner. The doors now all close and lock and they put the deck back together.
Highly recommended. Extremely professional. It's rare to see service like this these days. Congrats to foreman and crew for a job well done. Foreman was polite and kept me informed throughout the day of the project. Foreman and crew took careful steps to ensure the foundation repair efforts did not adversely impact existing walls/drywall in the house. I was kept updated throughout the project. I give these guys 5-stars. They cared that the job they were doing was done right.
There aren’t enough words to explain how to express my satisfaction with A1. My family and I have been in this house for 13 years and the floors have never felt this secure. The diligence of the entire team made this successful. The team leads kept me informed of every step, ensuring I was aware of all work. The entire crew were extremely friendly, and also explained the tasks they were working on when asked. I am 100% satisfied and would recommend A1 to all.
