Types of Foundation Damage
COSMETIC and STRUCTURAL
Cosmetic foundation damage in North Texas is primary the result of soils shrinking, during droughts and before construction, then swelling during rains after construction. This is called upheaval. This may take several years to manifest itself into visual damage and is often the result of drainage changes, moisture from leaks or just an unusual mixture of dry to wet to dry to wet soils. Cosmetic damage can, left unchecked, turn into structural damage but that is a rare occurrence and is usually able to be prevented, stopped and reversed without the use of piers, mudjacking or other forms of lifting or building manipulation
